Algae film on surface of water by Dave S
A surface film of algae appears ~2-3 days after a weekly water change. I'm using compressed CO2, my understanding is that there should be no surface movement of water. Water parameters are good and I dose daily with recommended Seachem nutrients. Densely planted, fish under-stocked and 2 x 40...

SeaClear System II and lighting by Skeeve
Hi All, I have a 40 Gallon SeaClear System II tank. The included hood sits in the opening of the aquarium. See http://www.petsmart.com/global/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524441778940 for an image. The problem with this hood is that it only holds a 24" bulb which limits me to 2 x 20...

I would like to share a good experience with everybody of this groups. For a couple of months I fought a battle against the so called Green Dust Algae. The growth of this harmless (?) but annoying algae was so quick that I had to wipe the screens every other day. Sometimes, the algae reappeared...

Adding a 2nd CO2 reactor by Pete
I currently have an Aqua Medic 500 reactor in 1 corner of my tank driven by my Eheim 2217. I'm losing some CO2 from the base of the reactor, so I'm going to add a 2nd reactor which I'll put in the other corner to help with CO2 distribution. I've ordered the Aqua Medic reactor 500M - same as the...

anyone got excess java fern? by jd
After reading the recent thread about it, I've decided to see if I can get it to act like a "weed" in one of my breeder tanks, but the local (crappy) fish shops don't have any (they all sell random swords as whatever you ask for)... I figure before I send off through the mail, I'd ping the list...

CFL better than fluorescent? by Brian
I recently lost my light hood due to an electrical short - a small fire quickly put out. I had two T-8 fluorescents. Since I have this opportunity to start from scratch, I'm considering going with compact fluorescents instead of the old T-8s. Is there any advantage in CFL? With the 96W lamp, I...

T-5 vs. Standard Fluorescent... also T-6 by [email protected]

After a year and a half... by default
My tank has become bushier. http://www.geocities.com/erviservy/sept14_06.htm I started as many of us did, a few clumps of stem plants from the local fish store in a tank with sub par dim lighting. Since then I've added a few watts, pumped in C02 and I fertilize using Tom's EI method. The fish are...

CO2 Diffusion by Jim Conklin
Is it ok to just put the CO2 tube into the inlet of my canster filter? I bought some crazy thing called the 'Aqua Medic Membrane Reactor". It worked for a while (just discharging large [email protected] bubbles into the water), now the damn hose keeps popping off the tube, I'd rather go the most simple...

Hornswort question by Ook
I've tried unsucessfully to grow Hornswort for a few years, and finally gave up. Several months ago I moved, and in my tank I had a few 1 inch scraps of old hornswort, barely alive. Today, it is an infestation that I have to thin periodically. Is Hornswort sensitive to different water types? I...
