    Hi OFL.. I have a quick(ish?) question about lights or live plants...

    I've ordered some 6500k daylight bulbs for my tank, but I was wondering what the affect on the plants would be if it was more or less than 6500k? Also, for plants that require more light, do they require a higher kelvin temp or do they require more watts per gallon? Will low light plants melt in a higher k rating or in higher watt per gallon ratio?

    Thank you for the advice on my ten gallon! It's all set up and I'm going to add my guys after spring break. :] And I just posted a log in the journal section to keep track of the levels and stuff.

    Hey OFL! I was wondering how long on average it would take to cycle a 10 gallon with a filter and live plants? It's heavily landscaped, as it will be a sorority tank. I have a test kit on hand already.

    I just wanted to say thank you again for all of your help! I went back to lurking and picked up a new betta today. :) I'm hoping to be more active here this time.

    Hi OFL! I read many of your posts. If you have a minute would you please weigh in on a thread I just posted in the habitat area regarding moderating current on a sponge filter? What I did is explained there with pics in my new album new tank. I value your opinion and want to make sure what I'm doing on this new sponge filter works without defeating the filtration somehow. Thanks if you have time to weigh in.

    OFL, I had a very strange case of fin nipping. My fish eventually ended up dying--even though he was fine this morning. His tank mate (divided 10 gallon) is not exhibiting any signs of strange behavior. I have only seen this particular fish nip himself today. He wouldn't even come up for air and just continue to turn in circles, so I imagine that he suffocated. It is so upsetting. Is this common? Should I worry about the other fish in the tank?

    I saw the post you had on the forum, npt challenge, and I think that in the tank that will only hold 4 inches of water, you should add some newts of something that live in the water and on land. You would just have to add some rocks for them to climb up on. Just an idea, but let me know if you try it out!
