Testing screw in fluorescents by dfreas
Not too long ago there was a short discussion on the effectiveness (or lack thereof) of these bulbs. For a recap do a google group search on "Screw in fluorescent bulbs" One of the points that was brought up was that the problem may be that the bulbs Richard used were soft whites instead of 6500K...

How does watts per gallon compare with CF lighting? by DaveSurfer
Does anyone have a chart or a comparison from standard fluorescent watts per gallon to compact fluorescents? I'm looking at lighting a 30 gallon tank with 2 x 55W CF from AH Supply. I think that might be a bit over kill being 3.7WPG. There are also 2 x 36W. Thanks!! Dave.

Filtering H2O by quiser
Dose anyone filter their tap water before putting it in their tanks to reduce/remove nutrients. If so is there a cheap DYI system. I am having problems with algae and I am sure it stems from the water here.

Discolored Ambulia? by spiral_72
I bought a beautiful large leaf Ambulia plant 16 days ago. Since then the majority of the plant has turned a green/brown color while the newest leaves and the tips of the old leaves remain a bright green.

Aquatic Plant Fertilizer & Fish by DNT
Does anyone know if Little Giant Aquatic Plant Fertilizer (10-14-8) can be used in a planted aquarium with fish? I bought it for a pond but I'm having problems with algae in my tank and I thought it might be because I've been using liquid plant food. I can't find any aquarium plant tablets around...
