Java Fern/Moss by PiperJason
Hey all, I've been lurking around here a few days and now I have a question about the plants in my tank. For starters all I have is a 2.5 gal tank with one betta in it lit by a 20watt halogen desk lamp. I have water sprites and some other kind of floating plant covering a good part of the tank...

Blue-green algae / cyanobacteria? Or is it something else? by Shorty
I think I have blue-green algae in my tank (cyanobacteria). The problem is that it's not green at all. It's brown in color. It seems to behave like blue-green algae because it's usually in the spots with little water movement, on the gravel and hanging on anacharis/elodea and surrounding my...

Snail Hunting fish - recommendations ? by Shawn P. Good
Hello : I bought quite alot of plants about a month and a half ago to start up my new planted tank. Seems like there were some hitchhikers, as now my aquarium is full of small (~5-8mm) snails. No idea what species, but they leave the algae alone and love eating holes in the leaves of all my...

Barley Straw Extract for Green Water Algae ? by Shawn P. Good
Does anyone have experience treating "green water algae" infestations with barley straw extract ? What were your conclusions ? Did it work or not work ? Also, does it actually *kill* the algae ? Or does it just clarify the water in some other way ? I have a 55gal tank and the bottle I was...

Tall, single stem plant question by Dick
I don't know its name, but I have had it in my 75 gallon tank for years. It has a single stem with small, round leaves radiating from the stem. I have often had to trim the tops as they would reach the top and then lay over on the surface. I started with a few cuttings and transfered them to...

Plant basics? by Liz McGuire
All, I've been doing a lot of research on how to keep plants and am hoping someone would be kind enough to confirm or correct my conclusions and answer some questions. 1. I understand that different plants need varying amounts of light and some need a substrate while others will attach to rocks...

Don't order fish by Methuselah
I ordered fish and plants two times. If you don't mind the very high shipping cost, their plants are ok but fish orders are incomplete and poor quality. Both of my orders were only partly filled and YOU DO NOT GET A REFUND. If you're lucky you may get an in-house credit (to have additional...

Phosphate by Nikki Casali
Here's a puzzle. In the morning my tank phosphates are around 0.60 mg/l. In the evening they shoot up to 2.20 mg/l. I feed once a day and very little. I even have Rowaphos in my canister filter. The tank is planted. I can only presume that the algae eaters excrete pure phosphate from the algae they...

Looking for a better needle valve for CO2 by Scott Rogahn
I am looking for a better needle valve. I am presently using a cheap home depot valve that just doesn't work. You can go from no bubbles to blowing the reactor of the side of the tank in about a turn even at pressures less than 5PSI. I presently use this by closing the valve all the way...

Is 10000k to much for F/W Plants? by Nick D
Hi... I'm upgrading my lighting to power compacts and have the option of getting several different kelvin rated bulbs. I realize that the higher the kelvin rating, the cooler the visual of the bulb appears. I don't like my tank looking yellow with a 5500k bulb...so I want to get a 10000k bulb for a...

What I Did This Morning by Dunter Powries
I spent two hours picking duckweed out of a 30" x 12" x 3" mat of Riccia with tweezers and a jewelers loupe while my four-year old ran around my legs tunelessly screaming Christmas songs and my two-year old repeatedly attempted to immerse himself in the rinse bucket. I HATE duckweed... and, at...

Fed up! (Sorry for Crosspost) by JazzyB
As an avid reader of the aquaria newsgroups, I think it's time to put my foot down and ask that this childish behaviour exhibited by.... you know who they are... be taken elsewhere. Doesn't everyone else here agree? Let's keep these groups where they belong... discussing aquaria. If not, I...

Fluourite - Boy is my tank cloudy by Elaine T
I saw this fab 2 gal planted tank at LFS and it inspired me to yank the UGF from Squishy's 2 gallon hex and put on a Red Sea nanofilter and Fluorite substrate. Lighting is a 14 watt 5500K spiral compact flourescent that seems plenty bright over a tank this tiny. But OMG - I rinsed and rinsed my...
