    Question About Carbon & Where To Place It

    Thank you all for the help. I bought a large amount, as it was rather cheap, so I can experiment with it and see if it's worth using. Sounds like a month is the best I can hope for, so I'll continue with the monthly filter cleaning. This brings up another question I had: How long should I...

    Question About Carbon & Where To Place It

    I built a canister filter using 4" PVC and I'd like to add some activated carbon. I was wondering how best to place this in the filter. I currently have a coarse sponge, polyfill, and bioballs. I was thinking that adding the carbon between two layers of polyfill might be best. I'm not sure...

    Treating Parasites In White Cloud Minnows

    I was sitting here thinking about this problem some more, and I'd forgotten about feeding the Ottos a slice of zucchini once a week. I've only been thinking about the food I've been giving the minnows. I haven't seen them take any interest in the zucchini, but it is the only white food that's...

    Treating Parasites In White Cloud Minnows

    The poop I saw was bright white. The other fish have brown poop, same color as what I'm feeding them. I'm feeding them Easy Fry Food from Aquarium Co-op (claims it's not just for fry, but for small mouthed fish, as well), along with some crushed, freeze dried bloodworms once a week. I bought...

    Treating Parasites In White Cloud Minnows

    The poop I saw wasn't long or stringy, but looked perfectly normal except for the bright white color. Here's a few photos. Sorry for the horrible quality. I wasn't having luck with pics, so took a video and grabbed a couple screenshots. All of the other fish look the same as the first pic...

    Treating Parasites In White Cloud Minnows

    I have a pair of White Cloud Mountain Minnows that are showing signs of parasites. Their bellies are swollen and I've seen one of them with white poop. They show no signs of being sick, as they're active and they eat well. I noticed this about two weeks ago, thought they were constipated and...

    Moving Biomedia Into A Temporary Filter

    I set up my 20 gallon aquarium in March, and I built a canister filter out of 4" PVC pipe. It's developed a small air leak, and I need to take it apart to reseal it. It'll take a day or two for the silicone to cure, so I ordered a Marineland Penguin HOB to use in the meantime. I plan to take the...

    Dark Theme For Forum?

    I've looked at the settings and have only found Fishlore & Original themes. If there is already a dark theme and I've missed it, I'd appreciate it if someone can point me to it. If not, I'd love to see a dark theme added. I do use a browser extension that changes sites to a dark mode, but it...
