    Hello, I recently bought an Insitu Amazonia (with the gracious discount code dendrobuddy) directly from the Insitu website. I spent $400 on it. I have not yet started working on the tank, and I do not think that I will be continuing with this project. I bought the tank to house a colony of 6...

    Hello, I have recently acquired an Insitu Amazonia. I like the tank a lot so far, but the dimmer switch for the light seems not to be working. I have plugged it into every part of the wire chain I can see for the light, but it does not turn the light on at all. It’s like it breaks the...

    Hello, has anyone ever used the NICREW SkyLED Plus light? If so, how was it? I'm looking for a decent light to color up neos, that isn't too expensive. Any responses would be appreciated, thanks!

    I have been getting a lot of mixed info on all of the lighting stuff, but the main goal is to get some nice color on some small neorgelia species. The color doesn’t have to be a ton, only enought to get some basic reds and purples. Here is a light that I was looking at, it would be in a fixture...

    Making my second viv and need to figure out the lighting. For my first viv (exo terra 12x12x18) I just went with compact top and a jungle dawn led - pretty straightforward. With a 20 gallon tall there's more to look into. Anyone have any budget LED options? Everything I see posted here is $100+...

    I'm looking for an LED light to put on a 24" cubed tank. I've boiled it down to a spectral design LED system and the Fluval Plant 3.0 system. Both have a mix of R/B and white LEDs. I like the control feature of the Fluval as it allows you to customize the blend of light spectrum to the viewers...

    Hello again Dendroboard! So, I've been trying to make a rather large uninhabited terrarium that is quite on the tall side. The distance between the ceiling and the substrate is around 5 ft, for instance. As such, I purchased some exceptionally bright lights, which to me may be too bright, if...

    I used this Crane Ultrasonic I had at the house. Looks like they're 40 bucks new. Tubing and corrugated plastic came from home depot (cheap). Plastic makes a great top over the screen, keeps humidity in. Easy to cut with a utility knife, hole for light and one for tubing. I guess its all pretty...

    I have discussed this before with Dendro Dave in messages. He has recommended Ecoxotic E series. I am looking for LED light for my Exoterra setup that can penetrate over 24inches into my tank for plants. I am wanting a light that has adjustable spectrum and can "ramp up" making the lighting...

    Hello everybody, There are multiple types of LED's out there (5050, 3258, etc.) and I am under the impression that not all of these are equal in terms of lm/W output. Can anyone give me an answer on that and a source for more information? If this is the case then I would assume that it makes...

I have had a viv set up and running for quite some time but can not decide which frogs to get so I just keep upgrading plants and such for the tank. I got carried away and decided to try out a...

    Hi all, I have an old T5HO 54W ballast (Arcadia ACE154), but 54W T5 tubes are too long for the viv. However, there are 55W CFL tubes (4pin long types: Narva KLD-L 55W/958 Narva Bio Vital) which seem to have a decent spectrum, a bit of UV, and about approx. 3600 lm which would fit in the viv. I...
