    Hey all

    Yeah the one guy that I try to stick to asking for advice and info at my LFS is not into treating tanks chemically....hes more of a holistic attitude about things. I'm cool with that.

    Hey all

    I will definitly say the fish have grown and its becoming an issue. The tank was not started with all those fish by the way. I don't think any of them were too big when they were introduced to the tank...but they have been healthy and growing and I think its time to give some up. I have a friend...

    Hey all

    I test my tank weekly....and I do not think the kit is faulty or the tube was contaminated. It was redone twice and well rinsed. But who knows. I am very careful about testing and making sure bottles are put away once used. Its become a nice routine. I also have a log book I record everything...
