    Rookie upgrade

    That's not a proper aquarium light. I just taped a little flashlight to a bottle so I could get a picture of the tank without the entire room being reflected in the front.

    Rookie upgrade

    Should I go with Nicrew or Hygger?

    Rookie upgrade

    FWIW, It's either Nicrew or Hygger. I was going to Nicrew at least initially because they also offer a timer that seems pretty handy. Although, I don't really know if the built in timers on other models are just as good. Like you said, hopefully someone else can chime in.

    Cloudy green water

    Best snail control

    I'm thinking about adding MTS to my new tank. I was also thinking of adding a couple of assassin snails as population control for them (besides not overfeeding and controlling algae).

    I'm not as concerned about tannins as I am about pathogens.

    Disinfecting driftwood

    I got my first piece of driftwood. I read on the forum that boiling the wood can cause the wood fibers to break down. If I use chemicals, they could be absorbed by the wood and leach out later. So what's a good way to disinfect driftwood?

    Will fish survive the construction next door?

    On a side note, you shouldn't yell "Hey Kool-Aid!" near the fish tank either.
