Big plants? by Bill Stock
Which plants grow big (bushy), but not too tall? I'm going to have to redo my plant tank soon, as my Sword is getting way to tall for the tank. I'm looking for something I can prune back, but that doesn't require too much maintenance.

VHO vs. Standard Fluorescent by John Sankey
"My light hood has a sticker that says 30" / 20watt. Does this mean it is only safe to use a 20 watt bulb in it and that I will need to buy a new hood, specially made to handle VHO bulbs if that's what I want to go with?" If the VHO is marked other than 20 watts, it won't work with the ballast in...

Average cost of DIY Co2? by Harry Muscle
What's your average cost for each batch of DIY CO2 mixture? How often do you mix a new one. What size is your tank? I'm just trying to decide if there's big price difference between going DIY CO2 versus Flourish Excel (which is $17.99US for a 8-12 month supply). Thanks, Harry
