    The Cryptarium

    Amazing tank, it looks fantastic! Could you tell me what the tall grass like plants are please and also how many of each plant did you end up buying to get it looking how it does now? Hope you don't mind me asking as I'm looking to re-do my 110L tank, and was looking at buying a collection...

    1st real scape, 110 ltr

    Well after alot of planning I've got the tank more or less looking like I thought it would. Couple of problems, the moss was tied around the wood for a week in alot lower light so is like a browny green colour and if it doesn't recover with better lighting and CO2 it'll be getting replaced. Also...

    Questions on My New Kit.

    Thanks, I'm at work so can't look at my set now, but another question, the guage that comes with the set does that measure the pressure going into the tank? one valve is the course pressure and the other is for fine adjustments is that right?

    Questions on My New Kit.

    Got my D-D complete CO2 set delivered the other day, and the instructions are a little sparse to be honest, I’ve got it all connected up, checked for leaks etc, but there are no instructions for what to set it at as far as the pressure and valves go. Could anyone here with a set let me know...

    T5 as Opposed to T8

    Ok thanks for that, I'm wanting to upgrade my lights as the 32 gal tank only came with 36 watts T8 in total.

    T5 as Opposed to T8

    Thanks for the replys, on to my next question now. If I were to get 2 of the Hagen Glo T5HO lights I'd have a total of 96w, which would be exactly 3WPG(medium high). Would that amount of light need CO2 to keep the algae away, also my filter has x6 turnerover per hour? Thanks again.

    T5 as Opposed to T8

    Don't know if anyone could help but I've got a question about the lighting differences of T5 & T8. If the standard WPG rule applies to T8 lighting what would the equvilent be for T5? For instance if I I've got a 32Gal tank and I put a 48W T5 setup on there what would the equvilent be for T8...
