    WHAT AM I?

    I bought about ten of these last summer for my tank. They were small and beautiful. Now they are large and beautiful. And I have no idea what they are. I have spent hours on the internet looking, But so far I have not found anything. They seem like tetras of some kind, But the fins are slightly...

    Green thread algae

    Would excel dip be good. I have ripped up most of the carpet plants and my bladderwort. I put it in a bowl of water, and wondering if I should venture into bleach, peroxide, or excel 20:1? In my spare time...

    Green thread algae

    I need help. After my move, I have not had time to hang my lights. So instead they were propped atop the tank blowing too much light into the tank. Work has kept me busy and I figured I would deal when I had free time. Now I am free, but the tank has been taken over by thread algae. Crap! I...

    CO2 regulator dead

    Hard to say. But I might say it is the solenoid, Although it does click when I turn the power on and off... The co2 comes out, but not strong, like the valve is clogged maybe. Guess I could take it apart tonight and fiddle with it. It's Thursday. Would like any helpful hints to rule out...

    CO2 regulator dead

    Good evening. Curious if anyone has a spare solenoid regulator, Or knows how to fix a broken one. I have two now that have died. I would not mind buying something good. And when I say good, I mean something that will last. Cheers R Sent

    7 months later. Sorry for the delay. Full on work load for he last four months. Neglected the tank, but it has done well. I had planted Cuba and initially it grew well. I feared too much light in the tank because of black hair algae. Raised the lights for a month, and got rid of algae but...

    Yes, I'm doing it daily, then I plan on stitching them together, to get a better feel for growth. And I will add other plants soon, and animate the planting as well. This is the 29th. Added a spot light in the end, and messed with the grade. Also did a water change first off. Since the tank is...

    Realised yesterday, that I could easily set up a time lapse in the shed where the tank is, because the computer is also there. Set up the camera to tether to the computer, and it is easy to document without a card. Curious to see different growth rates and if anything goes south, it would be...
