    55 Gallon Tank Not all air stones are the same

    Yeah, I do have a dual adapter gang valve, however, I could not balance the air for the life of me, I played with it for several days and had no luck. I even tried to clean them out with some fresh water and blow air through them thinking maybe the line was jacked up, nope. I pull them apart and...

    55 Gallon Tank Not all air stones are the same

    So recently I starting putting my tank together I want the lit bubbles they look really great when the lights go out! I got a kit well actually 2 of them, to put into my tank a splitter valve to adjust the different flows to the air stones. Well over the course of about 2 months I could not...

    Need proven algae eater.

    I used to keep some cories and a BN pleco in a 10-gallon years ago. I rarely had any algae to worry about. The BN would clean house CONSTANTLY The only algae I ever found was in places he couldn't reach easily. You may consider an oto as well, they are tiny but they are hungry little buggers...

    55 Gallon Tank Stocking Question

    Very scientific, do you have a reference for this, I'd like to see if they have such detailed drawings on other fish as well.

    Looking for a good RO/DI system

    So I guess here is my ultimate question: I don't have an easy place to set up an RO system and I would likely have to run it for several hours to ensure I had enough water for a water change (And to have some on hand in case of an emergency change) I would like Angels, Boseman, Cories, and BN...

    55 Gallon Tank Stocking Question

    There are some absolutely stunning guppy colors no doubt there, but I always have a hard time telling male from female and I don't want to wake up one morning to a billion fry that will get sucked into my filter -_-. I am stilling kicking around the African Cichlids, but I'm still a bit unsure...

    55 Gallon Tank Stocking Question

    Do most Cichlids have a male/female ratio to minimize aggression?

    55 Gallon Tank Stocking Question

    55 Gallon Tank Stocking Question

    Hey guys, I have stupid hard water so hard that either I need to consider an RO/DI system or get cichlids. I am exploring the latter. My question is that I always see cichlid tanks that are stuffed to the gills (no pun intended) with fish. They seem to have little room to move about which...

    Looking for a good RO/DI system

    Yes but when I think of Cichlids I think of African Cichlids.

    Looking for a good RO/DI system

    I have considered Cichlids, and they are beautiful, but I don't think they are the best options for me. Especially since they can be very territorial as well. I have always wanted to have a community tank with angles...otherwise, I would probably do a tank of Cichlids.

    Looking for a good RO/DI system

    So these are some great-looking units over all guys gives me a lot to think about. My biggest concern is my GH/KH is around 20 for both that's a lot of minerals in the water. I was wondering as well how long these units would last before I would have to consider media and filter changes. I...

    Looking for a good RO/DI system

    Hey Zach, How big is your tank? I am running a 55 gallon, Would this system work well for that? I don't have much experience with RO systems. I may look into that system as well just see cost and reviews. (I appreciate you looking at my location ;))

    Looking for a good RO/DI system

    Looking for a good RO/DI system

    Hey guys, I'm new to this whole needing/using an RO/DI system. My GH/KH is around 20 with a pH of about 8.2+ most days. (it does fluctuate +/- about .2). I would like to drop my GH/KH down to about 10 or so, I'm OK with filling my tank with RO/DI I can add some minerals as well I'm not...
