Planted 55gal First week since recent dirt convertion:
48" aquaticlife t5 H/O lighting 2 /54w bulbs , one 6,500k and the other one Roseate.
I finally lost my mind and did it. I jumped right in and did a dirted 75g tank.
It was a lot of work getting it set up but it's so worth it. I am currently on Day seven of the new tank.
After set up I filled the tank it looked great water clear. The second day water was real cloudy and dark. I let that go until day 3. On day three my plant order arrived and I drained the tank and planted it and refilled.
Yesterday on day 6 and water had a haze but not as bad as the first…Continue

I have one pair of Bolivian rams in my 36 gallon planted amazon tank along with some Corey cats and some cherry barbs and I was wondering if I would be able to add a pair of Cacatuoides in the tank. I plan on turning the tank into a high tech heavily planted tank so there will be plenty of cover I also have some small flower pots set up as caves. So, will this work? any advice and feedback is very appreciated.

Well the fish and the shrimp are doing great. The plants also, need trimming regularly. The chia Pet not so great I wasn't able to get anything to take root on it so gave up and put in a piece of driftwood instead.
so im going to convert to dirt and i was wondering because some people complain that u cant use sand but im going to do that anyway cuz i have sand and fluval stratum mixed (should be fine) any way what should i look for when doing it and how should i go about getting all the stuff out of my tank to redo it thx.
It doesn't get any better than this.
so i have 2 giant clumps of flame moss healthy and idk what to do with it, anyone have any experience growing it?
