Description: I use 4x 65 watt Power Compact fixture by Aqualight with moonlights. I use aquaclear 70 for filtration and I do a 50% water change every two weeks. I don't use any fertilizer for my plants since I have plenty of fish to help fertilize them.
Advice: Be patient. Never ever buy sick fish, quarantine new fish always. Always rinse new pants. Keep your lights on for at least 10 hours a day, Co2 helps. Take a chance what doesn't work for other might work for you. Enjoy your tank!!!

Quote: There is nothing to fear, but fear itself.
About Yourself: I started keeping fish at age 6. It all started with 2 orandas that my cousin won at a fair and was too lazy to take care of. From there I switched to tropical fish with fake plants, then back to goldfish, then I did tropical again, but kept the goldfish. Then I made my own pond and added koi. Then I got into cichlids, but I couldn't stand watching them fight and kill each other, so I started a reef tank. My first reef tank attempt was a total disaster. I ended losing more than $3000 worth of livestock. So I instead switched to a planted tank with discus and angels, and I still have them. So I still have a pond with koi & goldfish, a planted discus & angels tank and I started a reef tank again.
