    5 year tank crashed. Unable to reestablish.

    Hello. A friend who has had a tank for the last 8 years without any deaths in the last 7. No spikes and completely stable. Suddenly the tank crashed and all of the fish died. He has had tanks the last 30 years and this has never happened before. We have tried to reestablish the tank with...

    I have Co2, Lights, Fertz... Still going wrong!

    After the water change, I've stabilised my tank in regards to the ammonia, I believe the spike was caused by the power cutting out and the filter being off for a few hours while I was working. My nitrate returned to 80ppm. I only added the root tabs as I believed they would fill the gap on...

    How can I check the Kelvin rating? The tank is running light for 12 hours. I have the settings on the app set to pro with settings adjusted for plant growth. I only got this light last week. Before that, I was running the light that came with the tank.

    I'm also after doing a 75% water change. As well as adding Tropica nutrition capsules. I planted three of them.

    A picture of my tank, I removed a few plants that I believed were too far gone yesterday. I added new plants; Alternantheras reineckii mini, Nymphoides hydrophylla, Utricularia graminifolia, Rotala indica. Don't mind the Co2 indicator, I changed the liquid last night :)

    A question about red plants!

    I have a few stems of Alternanthera reineckii red, I have two batches. I have a few older set of stems and them newer ones. The difference is dramatically different. The newer one holds its bright pink colours along with some bright greens on the top of the leaf. On my older stems they colours...

    Hey guys, firstly I'd love to thank everyone who has sacrificed their valuable time to help me on this thread. I hope I can return this kind of favour when you need it. I'm not sure if I should make another thread for this due to the fact all of my previous and perhaps current issues are laid...

    The pH is definitely 7.2. I've tested twice now. Forgive me for the confusion and wrong results! Getting used to all these scientific tests!

    No, sadly it doesn't. I checked online too, with no luck. Should I remove it?
