Hi everyone,

For those who are new here, those of us behind tankspiration.com are all active posters here on BC Aquaria. We LOVE this site. We thought it would be great to have a resource where we could track the progress of a few particular tanks and learn in the process. We also wanted to have a fixed place for articles in blog form.

Lisa (ibenu), Frank (jiang604), and I plan to each setup and scape a tank or two and blog about it. The difference with this blog is that we're going to update DAILY!

Once our tanks look the way we want them to, we're going to tear them down and start again. Of course, if we blogged about our plants growth on a daily basis, you'd all get bored to tears, so instead, we're going to have articles some days, feature some really cool tanks that we find on the web (that we're calling tankspiration), and talk through some DIY projects that we find interesting.

If you want to suggest an article for one of us to research to talk about, let us know! Similarly, if you want to suggest a tank to be featured as tankspiration, send it my way

Anyway, the url is www.tankspiration.com. We're still pretty new and are growing so please be patient with us. Any feedback will be taken to heart and we hope to be a lasting resource for planted tank enthusiasts on the web. Hopefully this will encourage others to get into this awesome hobby.

Have an awesome day!

Your site is a great idea, and it's a really good read- really helpful. Question though, maybe I'm just a little slow, but are there tank specs anywhere on that site for your 46?

I hadn't posted specs yet, but will do so in my next post on the site. I linked to an AWESOME article today about pressurized CO2. I didn't have permission to repost some of it, but at least I can link to it!

Wow, that is one detailed article. Definitely will be helpful when I decide to take the plunge into CO2.

Great article from Lapointe on methods and equipment for C02 delivery. :D

Can I suggest an article as one of your avid readers? A follow up on that article giving a basic outline on how to calculate C02 umm.. dosing... err diffusing **edit (injection)** maybe I guess is the term..? For example: amounts of yeast, sugar, soda mixture for a 10 gallon and over what period of time etc..? Likewise for bubble rates with pressurized users. And to tie it all in or even to start it all off, the math behind Watts Per Gallon and the algae danger zones!

Oh and hows about a ferts topic after that?

Hehe :), sorry for the Xmas wish list there...

I guess the only thing I didn't ask for was a shout out to your biggest fan- martialid10t! :D

Great article from Frank on methods and equipment for C02 delivery. Maybe I shouldn't give him all the credit but it sounded like him through the better part of that article. :D
