Java Moss by Jeff
Does anyone have an excess of java moss that they'd be willing to share? I'd order online, but most outfits have a minimum order fee, which would entail way more plants than my little eclipse can handle. Please contact me if you have some extra java moss. I'd be willing to pay the shipping, and...

Snail magnet ? by George Pontis
I am using a Hagen/Nutrafin bubble ladder in a 37G planted tank. Lately I have been increasing the CO2 levels to get from about 9ppm to 15-20. pH is around 7. It seems that snails are attracted to the higher CO2 / lower pH environment. I am finding a lot of snails around the top of the ladder,...

pH probe calibration by Nikki Casali
It's a month since I started using a permanent pH probe to control my tank's CO2 injections. The probe being used is made by AquaMedic. At the the first calibration I used buffer solutions 7 and 10. The instructions say to use 7 and 9. I used the 10 instead to adjust the calibration curve. The...

Ugly aquarium grass, and what fish to put in a small aquarium by robin
Hi, I've got an Eclipse System 3 that I set up in November for my betta (which was in a very small bowl). As an aquarium newbie, I love the Eclipse - very quiet, easy to set up, and small enough to fit on my desk. Anyway, after running the aquarium with plants but no fish for a couple of weeks,...

Eco-Complete vs. Flourite by bottom feeder
This may have come up before, but which is better? I'm re-doing my 20 gallon and I'm debating which to get. The local Petsmart has Flourite, but the Eco-Complete I'd have to mail order. How many bags will be needed for a 20 gallon high (12"X24")? Also, here's how I intend to plant it: Hornwort,...

substrate for potted plants by K Byers
I'm considering planting some aquatic plants in pots or in "planting rocks" (from the Foster & Smith catalog). I wish I had responded with this question last week when someone wrote that plants get most of their nutrients from the water. Can I put just plain aquarium gravel in these pots, or...

Algae damn by steve
Topic says it all. I'm in a life or death struggle with algae in my big tank. The two twentys are in fine shape. The cork tank is newly set up, the honeymoon suite, now nursery, is also clean and brite. The 55g, now that's another story. It's been going the longest, has the highest fish load,...

Another how much light question? by John >
I just purchased an 850g aquarium that is 3' 6" high, The fw.misc group thinks that the "watts per gallon" rule doesn't count in an aquarium of that size. I think my biggest concern is the height of the tank. I plan on growing average Wisconsin Pond weeds (oops) plants. Milfoil (not eurasion)...

Excel by Kay
I always thought if the algae can't consume it. And I always add a section of fast growing plants. If the algae can't consume it dies away. At least thats what happned to all my tanks from 55 gallons to 10 gallon tanks. Which is why I still use it years later. Kay
