    Upgrading Tank question

    I am looking into upgrading my tank which I am pretty serious about that this point in time. I have (3) T5 lights at 50 watts each over a 125 gallon tank. I just swapped out the gravel substrate for SMS substrate. I am getting ready to purchase dry ferts so I can start dosing for more than just...

    Changing bulbs?

    How often should we change the bulbs in our lights? I am using the Current Nova Extreme T-5 lighting currently. At least that is what I think it is... Thanks!

    Bummer, I figured you would say the tablets were not sufficient. I will look into the dry ferts, I know nothing about them but I am not opposed to learn. :)

    Just keep it in mind. Not sure how big on an image you are looking for. The bigger the more money, obviously.

    Well, since we print large format stuff every day we have an account with a place which makes it far cheaper than coming off of the street for a one time job. I had out printing place do it and then mount it to a rigid board. Cost me (OK, cost my company) about $60.00. You could double or...

    There are all kinds of images you can use for backgrounds. But I would suggest you get one with a high enough resolution that you can print it that big.

    So with the TPN+ I could ditch the Flourish? And I noticed that they have the liquid and the tabs. Is one preferred over the other. The tabs seemed like they last 6 months?

    After digging through the ferts forum here I ran across someone saying that they have used this product: http://www.mopsdirect.us/cgi-bin/SoftCa ... leffcbc3cb Is this stuff any good? Looks like you need to replace the tablets once per 6 months? If that is the case, that does not seem to...

    Yeah, it's a house, a very big one. I am an Architect and it was a house that someone asked me to make 2 houses into one. Their neighbors moved, they bought the house, combined their lots, I tore one house down to the foundation and completely refaced the other house and then connected the...

    I am unfamiliar with the EL dery salt method. A 50% water change is not that difficult for me, I would entertain it if need be. Can you point me in the right direction? 8-10 hours is probably what the lights are on now, but it varies. I look forward to getting them on a schedule. Flourish...

    I finally ordered a timer for my lights. I am running about 1.25 watts per gallon on a 125 gallon (6' long) tank. For the last year we just turn the lights on when we remember and then turn them off at night. Now that a timer is on it's way, what is the ideal time the lights should be on...
