They're so pretty. I love New England! I couldn't ever leave my beloved Texas, but if I did I would go to new England. if you ever catch one, send it to Texas!

I set-up a 90 Gal planted tank after being away from the hobby for a while. I have 80 little guys. Neons, cardinals, rasboras, paradise fish. The constant motion is wonderful and the plants are doing great. I lost two gouramis and a beta in the beginning. It may have been something to do with the CO2 system. This is the first tank in which Ive used substrate. I highly recommend it.

Awesome! What's the footprint on your 90 gallon? I love planted tanks. I don't use a co2 system though. I just supplement with excel or co2 booster.

These are the lights. The fixture is Marineland and the hood itself is Eclipse, so I'm hoping they're useful, work, and bulbs are still available. Anyone know anything about them?



This is the link to the hood

Go with the planted! I mean, you already have two saltwater tanks...

My wheels have been turning on a 55 gallon planted tank. I'm upgrading my reef to 100 gallons, probably in December or January, and I'm considering keeping my 55 and doing plants. I currently have a 10 gallon planted. I would really like something bigger and I already have the tank. Lol. Based on those two things, ill probably just have some crawfish or a terrarium with tree frogs and anoles. Maybe some fire belly toads. But I can almost guarantee it will be either planted or a crawfish tank.


Or I'll have to get rid of all my tanks to afford a 100 gallon reef. Lol.
