    Blue acara with cloudy eyes

    So tank has been up for a year and a half. Was housing an Angel and Two Bolivian Rams originally. I do a 50% water change once a week Ammonia comes up zero on the Strips and between 0-0.25 on the API test. Nitrite is 0 on both and my Nitrates are around 10-20ppm. My ph is around 6.6

    Blue acara with cloudy eyes

    So I’m doing a water change on my 29 gallon grow out tank and just noticed my EBC has cloudiness on his eyes. Tested the water yesterday both with the API kit and the Aquarium CO OP test strips. All levels game out perfectly within safe range. I did notice on the API test the Ammonia was...

    Dempsey for Community Tank ?

    Very true completely forgot about that thank you. I’m sure the firemouth will eventually be an issue too.

    Dempsey for Community Tank ?

    So my Wife’s friend gave her a ten gallon because she knew i was into fish and her son wasn’t taking care of it. With the tank i inherited a 1”- 2” Jack Dempsey. Not really wanting to put together another tank but also feel bad cause he’s had it so bad already. I have a 75 gallon grow out tank...

    Too many fish for 29 gallon?

    I have a 29 Gallon with an Angel as well had other fish but just like some said the water parameters started to become effected. Currently i have an Aquaclear 50 and a sponge filter on the tank. Tank mates are a Bristle nose pleco and a Bolivian ram. The Ram is probably a little much but with...

    Best Canister Filter?

    Looks great. Think i may go the same route. HOB’s drive me crazy with the sound and look.

    Best Canister Filter?

    I am literally in the process of setting up a 75 gallon and looking at filters as well not sure if it helps but from what i found for $50 extra you can get the FX6 over the FX4. I have had Sun Suns in the past and after a short time ran into problems left and right from leaking to one with the...

    Hob VS Canister New 75

    Lol. That sounds like something i will def try much appreciated. I definitely will keep that in mind with placement. So important j always forget that. Absolutely. Ive run Canisters before and figuered since a HOB doesn't have as much distance to cover I’d get more pressure from the filter...

    Hob VS Canister New 75

    Ah ok appreciate it. Was thinking originally of going with an FX4 because of the gph percentage being at 700GPH but we all that’s never the true amount. Figured with a HOB and less room to have to travel would be closer to it’s advertised rate. That combo u have is actually a really good idea too

    Hob VS Canister New 75

    So after years of keeping small planted tanks finally decided i missed American Cichlids too much and bought a 75. As far as filtration i know the GPH gets reduced by a percentage once you factor in Media. I’ve heard on a canister you also lose pressure from water traveling up and down the...

    Ammonia Help

    My apologies my explanation was off. I added the ammonia the day after the tank was set up along with the Seachem. The Ammonia added three weeks later was actually the second dose. Ive been out if the hobby for 10 years but have never had this issue in the past. Not sure what im missing. I think...

    Ammonia Help

    Yup Thats exactly what i did. On the second day the tank was set up i used Seachem and noticed nitries by the third day. Didnt add any ammonia until almost Three weeks later when the PPM’s actually dropped. Which at that time i did still have my nitrites at about 3.0 PPM. The very next day after...
