ive only read, unfortunately ive only just begun sw. hahaha and fw only since june, well i think i had a 10gallon when i was a kid. its more fun now that im making the money to buy the stuff. think i could have ever talked mom into spending 150$ for a canister filter? nooooo wayyyy in he[moderator edit]

man i knew nothing back then. had an under gravel filter. i dont think i ever got my tank to cycle. for some reason i thought i had to remove the fish and wash the tank out in the bathtub to clean the tank... im not proud of it. but hey i was like 8-9. all i know is an aquarium with 10 gallons of water plus gravel was a lot for me as a kid to carry from my room to the tub. and yeah we had indoor plumbing back then.

They can't be fully in the water. At least the top inch of two has to be out. What I did was take a little hang on breeder box and drill holes on the front and sides for water movement, added a dsb, hung it in my refugium. I have lights on them for about 12-16 hours a day. I went out and just picked some up at the island floating around so I had to wait about a month for roots to sprout. But now I have nice roots and am about to get some leaves! Just make sure when your mangroves get leaves to not let them drop leaves in your tank water- this is where's all the bad nutrients are exported to and it will all just go back into your tank
