goldfish eating my plants by Cammie
I have 3 large goldfish (actually red cap orandas) and they either eat every plant I put in the tank, or they suck on them so all the leaves fall off. Are there any plants that goldfish do not like the taste of?

Surface turbulance in a planted non CO2 inject tank, good or bad? by Harry Muscle
I know that surface turbulence is bad in a planted CO2 injected tank since it drives off the extra CO2 that is pumped into the tank. However, what about a planted non CO2 injected tank, like mine? I'm setting up a 55G planted tank with 1.75wpg, and instead of CO2 I'm using Flourish Excel. Do I...
