    55 Gallon Ich issue help! No idea what to do

    I was just curious as to what could be the cause, I’ve never had this bad of an outbreak before, I’ve Barely have had any. The only time I’ll ever really have a fish with it is if I buy one with it to help heal. Maybe I can try taking a few out and separating a few. Usually salt and high temp...

    55 Gallon Ich issue help! No idea what to do

    Hey guys, so I’ve had my 55 gallon back up and running for a few months now. I needed to set it back up to house my more peaceful cichlids and a few babies I have. But everything has always been great, it’s been cycled from the start, and never had any issues. I’m pretty experienced with fish...

    How much filtration you could have in a 75

    Hey guys, So I was curious as to how much filtration you could have in a 75. Right now I have a crappy top fin canister filter, my marineland penguin 350, and a dual HOW sponge filter. my media is good in both canister & HOB. But I was curious as to if it’d be too much for them or what. My...

    Baby oscar hiding a lot

    Hey guys! so yesterday I just got my first Oscar. I’ve been meaning to get one for a long time & finally felt comfortable enough to get one after getting my 75.

    New tank! 75 Gallon

    Okay, so I finally upgraded yesterday & set it up today. I ended up with a brand new 75 I got off some guy for $80. I feel like I couldn’t pass that up. I still have the 55, 36, 20 & 10. (See the progression there ). But so far so good. My guys love it. I haven’t introduced my severums yet...

    Cichlid care - Update!

    Cichlid care - Update!

    I’m currently in the process of a getting a 110 that I found on marketplace. I’m praying that’ll be enough for them long term. I have multiple tanks. So if I need to I can split them up and have them comfortable for the time being. Once the 110 is set up, it’ll be a lot easier to manage them &...

    Okay awesome, we’ve been at it a while doing it. We don’t usually like doing that method, but we didn’t really have a choice. Unless we wanted to move all the guys to a smaller tank with others. It just didn’t seem like an option. But enough prime & stability, they seemed to make it through...

    We had it cycled but ended up putting sponges in instead of carbon filters. It messed a bit up, but I’ve done everything for the fish in cycle & just am curious as to what it should read. I always read that the ammonia is never really yellow. It always has a slight green tint most of the time...
