    Best filtration for stocked 100g

    Hey yall!! I've got a fully stocked 100gal SA cichlid tank -- running 2 months.. ive got a eheim 2217 and whale 500 on it but I want more filtration since these fish dirty up the tank so quickly. I already do twice a week 30-40% wc and it just doesn't seem to be enough. Thoughts on FX4 or FX6 in...

    Is this HITH?

    Is this HITH?

    Sounds good, do I need to add cichlid salt? I've got soft water in their tank so I was going to add anyways.. also do I need to keep the lights dime or dark for a few days to reduce stress?

    Is this HITH?

    Hey yall, got my green terror about a week ago and just noticed last night an abrasion on his head. I've got lots of driftwood and rocks in his tank alongside some tinfoil barbs and convict cichlid as tank mates. Im still new to the cichlids and just want to make sure all is OK. Water parameters...

    100 gal

    Oh lawd, gallon by gallon huh . Im certain its a 100 gal but I just wanted some input to make sure.. especially since I want african cichlids in there. Now my next question is what kind of African cichlids would go best together in the 100 gal? I really like green terrors....

    100 gal

    Okay, so I just purchased a 100 gal tank. Dimensions 60 inch long, 18 inch depth, and 19.25 height.. all the calculations come out to 88 gal? Is this right? Also, if it is a true 100 gal.. I want to do african cichlids.. I need some ideas for fish.. I love green terrors but I also love convicts...

    Converting 55gal to a 100-120gal tank

    Hey yall, I'm looking into getting a bigger tank, probably 100-120 gal. What are the steps into transitioning my 55gal stock and plants to a new tank? My 55gal is fully stocked community tank thats heavily planted. It has an eheim 2215 canister and a top filter(I don't remember the name). Ill...

    Fish are dying

    I just did a 50% w/c and cleaned out 3 more dead fish.. so maybe cleaned out all that and doing the dramatic w/c will stop whatever is going on.

    Fish are dying

    Not at all, the only abnormality is the blue cloudy eyes I saw and the cory most recently dead was swimming upside down on the surface.

    Fish are dying

    Lost 5 corydora in 1 week, only addition was 4 julli last week... thats when it all went downhill.. heavily planted 54gal community tank. Twice a week 25-30% water changes. Low stocked.. did ammonia and was 0.25ppm but I've got alot of dying stock.. whats going on? I'm doing a 50% w/c right now.

    Ammonia levels high

    Setup about a year ago and its been stable up until lately which is surprising because the only additional fish I've added was some rummynose tetras.. but the overall stocking of the tank is maybe 75%.. heavily planted too. Lots of mystery and netrites too.

    Ammonia levels high

    I had this issue last week so I did a 50% wc once a week(first time) .. i usually do 25% wc twice a week to help level things back out but I just tested the water and the ammonia is back up to 0.5ppm.. all other parameters are normal. I feed once a day but haven't in a day since they were...
