Re: C. irrubesco eggs

Have you looked into microworms? I have cultures ready at all time incase I ever have fish breed (not likely, haha but still). They are really easy to culture and easy to feed.

Re: 29g

THanks everyone. If I may, what do you use for your plant growth, fertz, co2, subtrate wise For ferts, I use the EI Method of dosing, KHO3 and KH2PO4 for macros and CSM+B for micros. It is pretty much the staple for an high-tech planted tank. In depth here: http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/forumap...

Re: 29g

Update! Got some new plants, Alternanthera reineckii rosaefolia, Rotala macranda 'Butterfly', Rotala macranda, Ludwigia brevipes, and Rotala rotundifolia. I removed the cherry barbs because they were they only fish reacting to the co2, since moving them out I have been able to increase the co2 alot!...

Re: lighting questions

Agreed, a 10,000k and a 6700k works perfect for me. They balance each other perfectly!

Re: Need advise on setting up my puffer tank

I don't know what it is with the SunSun filters, I have one too and every once in a while when I'm done cleaning it out, the seal decides to not stick and spills water all over. It's happened 3 times to me today. :(

Re: where do you get your water from?

RO/DI System! I love it! You can make any kind of water from it, I wouldn't have gotten it if I wasn't looking for super soft acidic water. :D

Re: lighting questions

BLue is not a color that plants can photosynthesize pretty well... Can you switch out the bulbs more in the 6700k - 10,000k range?
