Aquarium Lighting by Hound
Quoted from a website: (refering to a Power Compact Flo set-up) Our DIY systems include one ballast for every two lamps, thus creating a great way to implement dawn & dusk simulation. My question is if that is correct? I am currently looking to build/purchase a 36" PCF that utilizes 2-55w bulbs....

I sincerely feel like the biggest idiot. I got a new filter, the AquaClear 200, for my 10 gallon freshwater tank; it won't start pumping water through. I followed the directions, nothing; I bent my arms in all weird directions to get the air out of the tube and the tube then inserted into the...

co2 in cichlid tank? by [email protected]
Great information! The truth and reality here is that african cichlids can acclimate to ph levels of 7.0.to 7.5 just fine. In fact, all of the African cichlids you purchase in stores have the same ph of all the other freshwater fish for sale. Plants and african cichlids can work well together...

Aquarium backgrounds by DRE
Does anyone know some cool ways to make natural appearing backgrounds for an aquarium? Am interested in a mud bank or amazon appearance. The ones I saw were available from a company but very expensive. $200-400 range. I think a person can make one for way cheaper that is 3D and real cool. Any...

Bubble Wall by Bill Stock
I want to add a bubble wall to my 55 gallon. I had an old Hagen Optima that I bought for a non fishy purpose about 20 years ago, but it's toast. I don't imagine it's worth fixing, so what's a good alternative, Whisper, Tetratec? It should be cheap, quiet and have amazing output! :) But I'd settle...

DIY CO2 system - is this do-able? by Andy
Greetings, I'm planning a homemade CO2 system - I'm after a well regulated bubble rate. At first I thought maybe I'd put a pressure regulator with just the 2 liter pop bottle setup, but I assume backpressure could make the bottle explode. So what I'm looking to do now is to get a pressure cooker...
