    Faucet Adapter For Water Changer Doesn't Fit.

    Ah, thanks. I think I figured out my problem. I was using the brass adapters that don't come apart. (or, the small faucet brass adapter from python that was too small, but only one piece and a female). Then, I found a two piece plastic adapter and took it apart. I realized I only needed the...

    Faucet Adapter For Water Changer Doesn't Fit.

    Thanks for the replies. I have NO idea how to replace a faucet (and I have this issue with all the faucets in my house, they must all be the same brand even though they are different styles), so that is out. But, if I find a manufacturers name, I'll definitely check out the website and see if...

    Faucet Adapter For Water Changer Doesn't Fit.

    So, I just bought a house, YAY!! But, my aqueon water changer, which worked great at the apartment doesn't fit at my house. I unscrew the aerator on my faucet, and it is TOO small for the water changer adapter to fit. I found a small faucet adapter made by python (I'm not opposed to switching...

    New setup, just checking if this combination of fish will work.

    The cories and the betta should do fine together. The rasboras will probably also work, but make sure to keep an eye on things when you first add them--you want to make sure they are not nipping at the betta (more likely) or the betta isn't being aggressive with them (less likely). Since it's...

    Buying Gently Used Products--Should I?

    Thanks for all the advice. I think I will pass on this offer for sure. I may very well do a finnex fixture--but I can get one brand new shipped for almost the same as this guy wants. I was just thinking I could get everything I need in one go, but it sounds like I'd be better off passing on this.

    Buying Gently Used Products--Should I?

    He says everything has only been used around five months and all the light fixtures have the original boxes and paperwork. Is the finnex a good fixture by itself? (I.e. if I decide to skip on this offer, and buy my own light fixture, would that be a good choice?) The seller told me I could get...

    Older Model Fluval New in Box--is iit any Good?

    I havea 125 gallon tank in my parents' basement that I plan to set up soon. I plan to use two canister filters on it (freshwater tanK). I hadn't decided on exactly which model(s) to use, but when I was taking inventory of my stuff. I noticed that there was a Fluval 404 canister filter new in...

    Filtration and Heater advice for a 125 gallon tank

    Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to use the inline heaters so that I could eliminate the look and hassle of having the heater in the tank. I know there is an E-Hiem (I think) filter that has a built in heater, but it is SUPER expensive. However, if others seem to think inline heaters aren't...

    New 55 gallon tank...am I stuck with buckets?

    The Python comes with extenders and can be made pretty long. I know we had a VERY long python when I worked at the pet store. Also, I use seachem Prime and the directions say if you are using buckets to treat the bucket and add it to the tank, but if you are using a water changer directly from...

    Filtration and Heater advice for a 125 gallon tank

    I am moving soon-- I am buying a house!! Finally, I will be able to set up my large fish tank. YAY! So, I am trying to figure out the best type of filtration/heater to use for this tank. I plan to run two canister filters, and two in line heaters (one on each filter). What are the best...

    Some Beginner Questions

    HI and welcome. There are lots of easy low light plants out there. You can add the plants right away, you don't need to wait for the cycle to finish. What kind of substrate do you have in your tank? If you have gravel, then regular plants might not work so well. But, Java fern and anubias...

    Getting plecos that nobody wants... advise is well needed!

    You will really want that DIY for emptying the tanks when you get the larger one set up and running. But, I don't think it will fill the tanks for you. For that you will need an Aqueon or a Python. (The link didn't connect to a thread, just the DIY section). I do recommend getting one of...

    New Goldfish!

    Sounds like you are on the right track if you are doing water changes twice a week, and planning on upgrading. Just make sure you do upgrade. And, I would recommend a 40 gallon for the two goldfish. The bigger the better, IMO. But, usually, it is recommended to have 20gallons for each...
