    Hi all! My tank project is proceeding slowly but steadily. I have a bag of play sand that has sat in the carport for a few weeks while I've been otherwise busy (mineralizing the soil, building lights, etc.) The sand bag was a bit damp from the start, and now it has many brown/green algae spots...

    Howdy! I'm brand new to this forum and the Walstad scene. PetCo had their $1/gallon aquarium sale the other day and I couldn't resist picking up a 20 long as I've wanted to do a Walstad forever now. I'm in the planning phase still and I'm trying to understand how to balance the light needs of...

    I’ve been battling algae for a few years now and sheepishly ask the APC community for their kind assistance. I’ve ready the Sears Conklin article, tried PMDD, tried various test kits etc and still struggle with algae, mostly just plain green algae, but a little BGA and a little hair algae too...

    I know it's not unheard of when tanks are only a few months old to have an algae bloom. I've been trying to get even a little control of it but to no avail. Background: It started after I added some osmocote root tabs deep under the sand substrate. I pushed the tabs all the way to the bottom...

    My wife and I have maintained a planted freshwater tank for a couple of years now. Nothing extravagant but it survived with little to no algae attacks. After doing a bit of researching and watching youtube vlogs about tank design and maintenance we decided to upgrade our aquarium to a larger...

    I had never a time when there was no algae in my tank for the past 8 years! This is the first time when all the algae has just vanished and plants are pearling and growing like they have never thrived before. All these years I used EI ferts, pressured CO2, 6500 K LED light, Amazonia & river...

    Hi guys, I have been struggling with brown algae for nearly a year now in a 10 gallon low tech that I started. I don't find that I get algae blooms like I did early on, but for months, I clean off my plants, then slowly and steadily, they are recoated in diatoms over about a 2 week period. This...

    I moved and my 72 gallon now gets too much light for my plants to keep up with! Yes, i know moving the tank is an inevitable option- not the easiest task! I'm looking for a CO2 system, or even just the tank and regulator- on a budget. If you have anything available, please let me know. Thanks!

    Hello, Everyone! I'm relatively new to the hobby and currently battling some issues with algae in my 3 gallon planted betta aquarium that I set about 2-3 months ago. I've tried identifying the species of algae, but I haven't found anything that matches 100% to what I'm dealing with. The closest...

    I recently set up a 29 gallon aquarium with eco-complete substrate. I've planted some pearl weed, wisteria, and elodea. I'm waiting to put fish in until everything stabilizes, the plants are established, and chemicals are good. For some reason the elodea didn't make it and melted away over...

    I am recently trying to start a plantation tank and I had a huge piece of drift wood that has to be stationed in. I tried soaking it before putting it in tank. But due to its size it was difficult, so I directly put in tank, after Aquascaping. Firstly it started floating all went upside down...

    I also seem to have algae problems, it will come , I'll get rid of it, then it comes back. This last time I though I have been pretty good about trying to keep on top of it. I figure I must be doing something wrong for the last couple years so perhaps you can point it out. 55 gallon tank...
