Q&A Letter Spotlight

Stanley Tan (Singapore) writes to Bob about:
Siphoning Sand

Dear Mr. Goemans, It's been a long time since I have written to you and hope everything is fine with you. Anyway, I have just setup a 48" x 18" x 18" plenum system just two months ago and everything seems to be fine, except for a recent algae problem on the sand surface. I siphoned out the top layer of sand particles last week and things now seem much better. But there are a few questions that I would like to ask and hope you can find time to reply. 1. You mentioned in a previous mail that I should siphon out the top layer of algae covered sand particles as often as possible. That more.

Product Review of Mesoscope

Manufactured by Ogles

Ogles Mesoscope (Written in 2005) Have you ever looked through a telescope to see very far away places? How about viewing creatures so small that a microscope was required. No doubt you've done both. As an aquarist, have you ever wanted to see the animals or portions of these creatures in your aquarium very close up without removing or stressing them in the slightest fashion? Probably so, and no doubt have viewed some of these things in your aquarium using a hand held magnifying glass. Something I have probably done a thousand times! But I've always wanted something much better and with more.
