Re: PAR Meter???

Kris can you bring to the meeting. I would like to see what range I am getting in the 90 gallon. Or if you want, I am near Columbia every Thursday I could pick it up one week and bring it back the next

Test kits and ferts

Hi all, Just curious as to what parameters do most people test for. How often do people test? Any good inclusive test kits out there on the market. I have some kits from years ago but have no idea if they are accurate still or not. Guess it would all depend on how shelf stable the reagents are. Also...

Re: New 90 gallon setup

Purigen seems like something I need to look into. I hope to be at the meeting in Feb so hopefully I will get some ideas. Don't think I will plumb the tank although I was thinking of plumbing a hose bib under the bathroom sink to run a hose from. That said, plumbing the tank would make a sump more us...

Still thinking if I want to do a canopy for the top. Basically the thing is overbuilt. You could probably park a truck on it. It ...

Re: No tank yet but a stand!

Re: New 90 gallon setup

So many options now... I looked at the different substrates and they look nice but I'm not sure I should change my mind. The ADA Aquasoil would be my first choice for performance, price and Amazon availability but I read a lot about it breaking down after a while. My plan for this tank is mostly sho...
