  5. Equipment
    Hi all! I'm in Florida but temps will soon start dropping so that I'll need a heater. I'd like one that shuts off after the water hits the correct temp if possible. Money isn't really that much of a factor since the heater will be small (probably 50w should be fine). Does anyone have any...
  6. El Natural
    Howdy! I kept nano marine tanks for years but after my beloved watchmen goby (had him for 4 1/2 years!!) jumped I let my tank fade away. I bought a 12" Mr. Aqua cube years ago and drilled it intending for it to replace my 8 gallon biocube. It has a 2.5 gallon refugium and a Coral Compulsion...

  9. Nano Aquariums
    I got the Current Solo desktop tank for Christmas this year, and for once I am totally stumped on what I should do with it. I'm looking for ideas on everything from stock to plants to hardscape. If anyone has one running I would love to see some pictures too!
  10. Nano Aquariums
    I've been keeping a colony of trumpet snails in jars by the window for almost a year now. The first colony I put in a 10 gallon tank and took 4 and put them in another jar with a piece of driftwood and some duckweed covering the entire surface. Just to have a "spare" and I liked the idea. I...

    Hey! I'm Taylor Daughtry, a writer for The Aquarium Guide. I've been doing aquascaping since 2010, and I've loved every moment of it. I recently discovered APC, and I've loved reading the journals of your tanks, and the discussion has been fantastic! I figured I'd finally make an account and...
  12. Nano Aquariums
    Hey! I write for TheAquariumGuide, and I've been tasked with building a Nano Tank with the fastest plant growth possible. Luckily, this is a company project, so money isn't an issue! ;) Our goal is to capture the time-lapsed growth of a tank from planting until maturity. We'll be using a Canon...
  13. Lighting
    I would like to upgrade the lighting on my planted nano aquarium (Aqueon Evolve 8 ) but am really confused by all the options. First of all I need to keep it under $100. I'd like to grow plants like riccia, micro sword, etc. so I probably need medium to high lighting. I inject with pressurized...

  16. Nano Aquariums
    First let me say that the tanks here inspire me to give planted nano aquariums a go. Thanks to everyone! Now for my idea. I used to work with stained glass and have all the equipment to cut and sand glass. Has anyone here done this for their own tanks? What I was thinking of are different...
