    Help beginner with co2 advice

    Wow thank you so much for a response I finally understand! I was planning on using the smallest tank possible (but not paintball) so probably a 5lb one. I’m in Chicago so I should be able to find reasonable prices somewhere. Also right now I’m using the api master test kit to check ph, and it...

    Help beginner with co2 advice

    Hi everyone, I’m seriously considering adding co2 to my 10 gallon tank but it’s really confusing so I’m looking for some answers here. 1) would this kit (Here) be good for me if I run a HOB filter, I heard HOBs tend to make you lose co2 or something like that because of the surface agitation? (Also...

    Help Advice for 10 gallon betta tank

    Thank you both for the advice, I’ll look into it all! I think I may be able to just get the smaller version of the hob I have now assuming the plants will help filter and its not fully stocked.

    Help Advice for 10 gallon betta tank

    Hey everyone, so it’s been a while since I’ve been active on here— long story short, my beloved betta Floyd died getting stuck between a decoration and the glass in his tank. I was so upset about it I really couldn’t imagine getting another fish. It took all I had just to keep the tank going for...

    Help Pest Infested Hornwort

    That’s a great point, my boyfriend is an environmental scientist, so that’s been drilled into me and is now my first concern. I definitely won’t flush it or put it down the drain. I make sure all of my clippings are disposed of responsibly since I’m in Cali and they may survive year round! In...

    Help Pest Infested Hornwort

    I’m a bit of a baby, and I would have a hard time killing them. Although, I do think bleach dip would be the easiest for me. That said the last thing I want to do is flush them or release them because I don’t want to mess with the local ecology. Anyone want free hornwort and pest snails...

    Help Pest Infested Hornwort

    Okay so I ordered hornwort from aquatic arts about a month ago, but when it got here I noticed it looked strange. There were random globs of unidentified randomness on it so I decided to take a .5 gal mason jar I had around and stick it in there for awhile to “quarantine” it but I really know...

    1 Gallon Tank Jarrariums As Gifts?

    Thanks that’s good to know! I just did some googling and they actually look a bit more like bladder snails to me, so I don’t know if that makes a difference or not! I may just not get the ghost shrimp in that case, I’ll have to sit on it for a bit. I don’t think they would overpopulate too...

    1 Gallon Tank Jarrariums As Gifts?

    Thank you guys! I think all of us need one for our desks A great use of trimmings if you ask me! Also, I bought some hornwort from aquatic arts awhile back but it didn’t look right to me so I set it in a .5 gallon mason jar with some untreated tap water. Just looked today and noticed 4...

    1 Gallon Tank Jarrariums As Gifts?

    Here’s some pictures of how they turned out! The big one for my mom still needs to clear up, and I’ll probably fiddle with them a little more, but I like them so far!

    1 Gallon Tank Jarrariums As Gifts?

    Yeah honestly I didn’t think of that and that is really scary. It would be horribly ironic if I contributed to betta abuse with how much it p***es me off. I’ll probably write in the card that they can add some life if they want, but that only shrimp or small snails would be suitable! Now off I...
