    Anyone Using This Led Light Strip?

    I don't have the Satellite Flexible LED+, but I do have two other CurrentUSA products, the Satellite LED+ (non-flex) and Satellite LED along with two different ramp timers.  I love their products.   I think of their products I own, the Satellite LED+ is the most similar.  It appears to share the...

    Help Me Identify My Hillstream Loach Please (Pics)

    Thanks Baccus!  After a bit more digging, I found the tail colors and patterns matched better Gastromyzon zebrinus.  Your info was the springboard I needed to ID the loach though.

    Help Me Identify My Hillstream Loach Please (Pics)

    Hey folks,   I was wondering if anyone could help me identify the type and sex of a hillstream loach I got from my LFS.  The employee told me this striped HSL is more uncommon and more hardy.  It was labelled "UFO" at my LFS.  His/her name is Posey (any baseball fans, he/she is named after San...

    I second that.  I'd rather wait to get plants with nice, healthy roots and decent leaves than have them rush a bad batch out.  Hope you get some plants soon!

    Choose Your Favorite Driftwood Scape (Pics)

    Thank you everyone for voting, and for the feedback!   I'll look into that, actually.  It looks pretty neat (when I picture it in my mind). :)   I actually have a piece almost exactly alike in a 30 gallon tank that is oriented like you described.  It looks really neat actually, but I wanted to...

    Choose Your Favorite Driftwood Scape (Pics)

    Hey folks,   I am cycling a 20 long tank that will soon be a cory only tank.  I want some opinions of how to arrange my manzanita driftwood.  So far, I have settled on orienting it like roots.  So I've got 8 pictures to choose from, but other suggestions are welcome!   I've also got a bunch of...

    Dwarf Puffer Tank Journal

    I pretty much had the exact same experience as you with the algae wafers and snails.  I believe algae wafers aren't particularly healthy for bettas too.  I eventually stopped feeding the snail at all, and after a long-ish holiday, my two nerites had died as well.  Now, the tank is sustaining a...

    How Do You Run A Cory Quarantine Tank?

    Hey folks,   Quick question, I am going to setup a quarantine tank that will forthcoming be for corydoras.  How do you recommend I set it up?  Specifically, what substrate do you recommend I use?   So far I have a piece of driftwood and some rocks.  I may throw in live cheap live plants (that I...

    What Do You Feed Your Apisto Cacatuoides?

    Not yet, but by tomorrow, when I hit up my LFS, I will buy two caves.  Will that be enough?  Apologies if that's a silly question, these are my first apistos.

    29 Gallon Planted Tank Setup Journal - Tons Of Pics!

    Some of the browning was indeed the outer leaves dying.  The rest of it wasn't actually any dying at all, but rather diatoms growing at the highest points where the light is more intense.  Thanks for the info!   Sadly, Minerva passed away on Saturday.  :(

    What Do You Feed Your Apisto Cacatuoides?

    Hello folks,   Bear with me here, you'll be rewarded with pictures at the end of this post.   I just want to know what y'all feed your apistogramma cacatuoides.  I have checked other resources on the internet and have found only conflicting info.  Some places say that dried foods (flakes...

    Dirt Planted Betta Tank

    I like the hardiness and simplicity of Dwarf Sagittaria.  They explode in a dirt tank so you'll be trimming back often.

    Dirt Planted Betta Tank

    Nice work!  I recently dirted my first tank, a 29 gallon.  I've been wanting to redo my own betta tank with dirt too.  I'm just worried about the water params going nuts in such a small tank.  What other plants are you planning?
