    New project for this year

    Might make a stand for my son’s new 13.5g Fluval. It has a unique bottom that may look pretty cool with some extra details rather than just sitting on a dresser.

    Did you ever get this beast setup?!

    Getting back in the game!

    Well the newbie keeps swimming into the overflow and getting stuck in the first baffle area. He is so small it doesn’t seem to bother him much but it’s an absolute pleasure trying to get him back out. I think I’ll try running the adjustable overflow gate higher to limit the slot size. And since...

    Happy new year! Any over/ under bets on weekly WCs as a resolution?

    Getting back in the game!

    It’s cleared up pretty quick, sorry for the clouds. Didn’t realize how quick it would dissipate. The whole family is currently consumed determining the first fish name. I’m working my fatherly mind touch to avoid Nemo as the number one.🤨

    Thanks for the feedback bud, I actually already purchased the Fluval. :oops: The constraints you mentioned were a concern for me but I have to keep remembering this is going to sit on my son’s dresser for now. If he keeps on top of it and gets bit by the bug I have no problem building out a...

    I’m neck deep in research mode and I agree with both points. It helps being in the middle of a career and not a broke college kid this go around. ;)

    What have you been up to lately?

    Minimal maintenance is key for 99% of us. I have to imagine there are a few that enjoy daily tasks and doing everything manually but I’m sure they are few and far between.

    Noob going Salt

    Never had one in the past. This go around I guess I’ll look into it but they scare the bejesus out of me. I work in manufacturing, where I observe things go wrong all the time that are expensive, well maintained, designed, and controlled to never go wrong, yet I still have a job. </bait rant>

    Getting back in the game!

    Ok, so found a pretty sweet LFS last night and pulled the trigger on a Fluval 13.5g AIO. Seemed like a pretty solid option without any expensive required add-ons. Comes with all the basics except a heater, this should give me time to research what I want to run in the back for media, skimmer...

    Getting back in the game!

    Ok looking more into it, an AIO may be the way to go. Any learning, preferences, or cautions on; Fiji cube, JBJ, Fluval evo, Landen?

    Lighting Library

    Krish, any way to get this link stood back up? Considering it’s from 2010, it might not be valid since I don’t think LED was mainstream, but it might be a good starting point for a refresh, or maybe it’s still being maintained?

    Getting back in the game!

    Hey all. I was a pretty active member about 15 years ago, and I’ve been out of the hobby for long enough to forget more than I still remember. The reason for the post is that I’ve got the go ahead from the boss to fulfill my son’s top Christmas list wish for a tank. I can dig through the...
