    Taotronics 120W Reef LED Fixture Test Thread

    In light of some of the experimentation going on with leds, I thought this http://www.championlighting.com/product.php?productid=73002&cat=1592&page=1 was a fixture which deserves a look. They are among the most ubiquitous low priced led fixtures which are suitable for reef aquaria. The link is...

    LED fixtures where to find/purchase a decent one that is affordable

    I am considering purchasing an LED fixture, recently someone posted a link to a seller here, and I cannot seem to find it. Or I found the link but it did not lead to the advert I saw before. I wondered into an aquarium shop yesterday, and saw some interesting fixtures but they were going for...

    Fresh Fish

    Hi everybody! I just broke down my outdoor aquarium, and have lots of fish that were born in it over the summer. These are not a commonly seen species in the hobby, and hardcore Killie enthusiasts are rather dismissive of it because of its ease of breeding. The fish are Rivulus cylindraceous, a...

    2.6 gallon terrarium and a dearth of inspiration

    I recently acquired a leaky 2.6 gallon Top Fin aquarium (can't say no to free containers) and am wondering if it can be put to use somehow. I've searched far and wide on the web but all I find is information on nano planted tanks and the like. My first thought was some species of Cyricosmus...

    DIY CO2 injection system

    So I have been thinking up ideas for a good Utricularia setup, and I read on some threads here that they generally appreciate a good amount of CO2 in the water. After some research I decided to make my own little CO2 pump. I connected an aquarium tube line through a hole in a one gallon milk...

    Who Knew?

    I've been dealing with Azolla caroliniana for decades, either growing it or trying not to grow it, but this is a new one on me! I have some in a large outdoor aquarium which is part of my rainwater storage set up that I grow water plants and breed fish in over the summer. I often use the water...

    Hello from Charlotte, NC!

    Hi everyone! My name is Zach, in case you couldn't tell from my cryptic username, and I am rather new to this whole carnivorous plant thing. What started as a fascination for the unusual has, in five short months, become a full-fledged addiction. As of right now, my grow list is as follows...

    Sarracenia psittacina submerged?

    I know that most the plants I cultivate for my aquarium also only grow fully submerged for part of the year, the rest of the year they grow immersed(halfway out of the water) on the side of a source of water or even in bone dry riverbeds. BUT they can be kept submerged for as long as they have...

    Attempting my first germination. Double-check me?

    N. albomarginata, N. reinwartdiana These are the seeds I'm attempting to germinate in my new terrarium setup. The only information I can find on them claims that they are both from Borneo (at least), and that they have a massive elevation range, effectively making them both lowland and...

    Zath's CP Collection

    I decided to re-purpose one of my many empty aquariums (I'm actually an old hand at Terrarium building) into my first ever plant terrarium. I read about other people's projects and thought about many different opinions, while also trying to stay with the KISS method. This is what I came up...

    All Things Petiolaris

    It seems to me that there is a lot of interest in sundews of the petiolaris complex but not a lot of information out there. I consider these plants to be some of the most beautiful and interesting of all Drosera, if not all plants. They continue to be rare in cultivation and expensive to buy...
