That's it, I've had it - Blue Green Algae by Shawn
I can't take it any more. I simply cannot beat or keep up with the blue-green algae outbreak I've had now for about 5 months. I've tried everything. Blacking out the tank, removing my CO2 system, algicide treatments - nothing works. It makes my tanks look like crap, and it's killing all my...

Black Alge? by Jim Conklin
I'm having a problem with what I would call 'black alge' on my plants and driftwood. I have a 55 gallon discus planted tank, 2.4 watts/gallon, pH 6.2, temp 84-85F, GH 75ppm, KH 120ppm, 0 Nitrite and less then 20ppm Nitrate. I feed the plants the usual Flourish supplements every few days. This...

Eradicating BBA by Chris_S
Hi: I'm fed up with my Black Beard Algae. We've had it for the last several years, but never had it before that. Obviously it came in on some plants or fish. I've tried all the usual things like SAEs etc. and water control, but nothing gets rid of it. Recently I just setup a new 100G tank with...

Hobby Ethics by Joseph
I live in a state where many fresh water plants are illegal, e.g. Anacharis and milfoil. There are also several species of aquatic animals that are illegal, e.g. ghost shrimp, fresh water snails, and killifish (a HUGE fine if your caught with killies). I've been wrestling with the ethics of...

This one seems to cause some very negative comments. by spiral_72
Alright, I've got this idea. Boy, that sounds like the beginning to an end. I figure I can drop dry ice in a tank, cap it with a regulator and have CO2 for some period of time for my planted aquarium. Obviously it will require more than a handful of dry ice and chances are it ain't quite that...

Report: Seachem Excel as algaecide by Victor Martinez
It seems the poster who reported that Seachem Excel works as an algaecide on top of being a source of organic carbon was right! I had a lot of hair algae in my 110g heavily planted tank. So much that the outflow of my eheim filter had to be scrubbed and cleaned at least once every two weeks. Algae...

lining a whiskey barrel by zxcvbob
If I buy a half whiskey barrel at HD, Menard's, or Lowe's, will clear 6 mil plastic be good enough for lining it so it will hold water? I assume it won't hold water without a liner even after the wood swells up. I want to plant a lotus seedling in it. I'm too cheap to buy a commercial barrel...

Water Lettuce - new growth by Reel McKoi
The water lettuce that spent the winter in the greenhouse is putting on new growth. In another month they'll go outside in the ponds and barrels. Those that spent the winter in the fishtanks in the sunroom are also increasing in size. Duck week stayed alive and green all winter indoors. The...

Include plants when cycling tank? by LeighMo
When starting up a new tank using the fishless cycle method, should I include aquatic plants or just the gravel and driftwood? If this is going to be a high-light, CO2-injected tank, consider using Chuck's no-cycle method: http://www.csd.net/~cgadd/aqua/art_plant_newtank.htm If you can't do...

How much aeration needed? by Shorty
Yes, another question ... When starting a planted tank with a few fish. How much aeration do I need? I want to minimize surface turbulence to keep the injected DIY CO2 in the tank. I am using a canister filter. When I make the spray bar move the water without disturbing the surface I get bubbles...

Green Light Stump Remover by Watercress
Anyone has a definite answer to its content? According to previous postings it is suppose to be pure KNO3, but when I tested a solution of it with the Aqua. Pharm. nitrate test, I got a reading of 0. So, is the problem with the Stump Remover or the Nitrate Test? BTW, the Nitrate Test did have a...

BBA: the next step by Nikki Casali
OK, so moving on to plan B. I am finding the control of BBA extremely time consuming. It's the most tenacious algae. Hell, I don't even get green spot algae anymore. BBA grows very slowly, but it still bugs me as it excludes me from keeping very slow growing plants. I have a spare 110 litre...

For a long time I have just been running my aquarium in order to keep my fish happy and alive, where I have certainly been doing well enough in recent years. However, this posting is about my plants, which until now are just those thing that grow in the tank. As since I am aiming to...
