Purple Algae

This guy has an awesome little aquarium.  I can't believe it's only 10 gallons.  I don't know very much about saltwater aquariums, but I was wondering how do you get purple algae? Is it the lighting?  Do you have to buy live rock that already has it on…

Dirt tank update.

5 weeks into the new dirt tank and I couldn't be happier. I Have a 30g with only substrate and now a 30 tall with dirt. The dirt is allowing faster growth and bright colors. I like a low tech low maintenance tank, so with the dirt giving of the proper nutrients for a few months, it helps.

Best algae eater?

We all buy algae eater? But we all fail to see the best in most fishes. I spend so much money trying to fine the best algae eater and today I would like to tell you all about it. I got two white mollies in a 55 gal with brown algae, green algae, and black beard algae. Two weeks after I got the mollies all the algae on one half of the tank is all gone. From the plants and from the ground. I have to give it to the mollies for algae eating hands down.

20 high build

Alright the next project that I'm in progress with now is a 20 high. So far I'm planing on a pool filter sand substrate with driftwood and schooling fish just because I like the schools better than single fish.

The questions I have for everyone is what type of plants?? And fish would look good in this tank??

Also what type of ferts, food, fish, plants, etc. would you recommend for any of my tanks?? (13 high, 20 high)

Why do saltwater tanks need RO water, and why freshwtaer tanks don't

Why is it that freshwater aquariums are perfectly fine without using RO water, and by using tap water, but saltwater aquarists say you MUST use RO water for marine tanks? (assuming there are no corals). Pls reply, i have never been able to get a straight answer....

When do I use co2 in planted fish tank ?

I've purchased a co2 d501 generator kit using citric acid and baking soda. When I first added it to my 55 gallon planted fish tank it bothered the fish until I adjusted the bubble flow and turned on the air stones. The fish are doing great now. I've went online reading different reviews about when to use the co2 day or night, can anyone that use's co2 tell me when is the best time co2 should be applied inside the tank.

I've been looking all across the state of Wisconsin for a pair of apistogramma cacatuoides, but with no luck. Does anyone know any local breeders, local stores that carry them, or a good online dealer to get them from.
