Hello, I considering re-doing my planted tank.. This time, I want to use TRUE planted tank substrate.. I really like the look of a "sand-ish" substrate, but also want something that's going to reduce the amount of fertilizers I need to add on a regular basis. Any thoughts on Onyx Sand vs....

Plants not doing nearly as well as they used to by François Arsenault
Hello everyone, During the first year of my 40-gallon planted aquarium, my plants looked great. In particular, I had a huge, beautiful Echinodorus. My other plants were also thriving.

WPG for "very high light" plants? by Bill Stock
The Tropica site lists certain plants as "very high light" requirements. Anyone care to hazard a guess how this translates to WPG? I'm assuming somewhere close to 6 WPG?

how old are your fishes? by Harry Zonard
Just out of interest. How old is your oldest aquarium inhabitant? my gripe with encyclopedia is they don't state the potential longevity of fishes. I have kept aquaden itaniyyi (Dolphin cichlid) to the ripe old age of 12 and I had to move house ...so gave them away to the local fish shop

What's the trick with cabomba? by RedForeman ©®
I was told that it's because of too much blue in the spectrum, or something similar... One color makes it grow tall, one color makes it bushy, not tall.... IIRC, blue makes it go tall, red makes it bushy.... Anachris is the same way, if the light has more reds, it'll be bushier leaves,...
