    What's the deal fellas??

    Fishlore mods- I am just learning that apparently I can't provide a link to a site with simple information/commentary regarding this hobby of ours. I won't mention the site as it is immaterial to my point. This makes me think that if you felt so inclined,you could literally block the access to...

    Super chlorination events

    This is quite puzzling. There was a link in the original post that lead to a page regarding the subject title. There was also two replies by me that also not only linked the site but even just mentioned it. For some reason fishlore keeps taking down the link. I don't appreciate that at all. I...

    How could anyone not appreciate the irony?

    Can't determine if my Betta's fins are rotting or growing back

    The blue stuff in the betta cup is actually methylene blue and it's a very good thing to put in their cup. It helps them breathe, amongst other things. So it's actually something you want to see. As far as fin rot goes I'm not sure if salt alone will kill that bacteria. I've always used...

    Cycling with tss plus?

    Im pretty sure the ammonia/nitrite readings will be directly proportional so a change in one means a change in the other by definition so a reading of .25 ammonia and 0 nitrite after adding 1 ppm ammonia is a little wierd or am I reading this wrong

    What to do with a stagnant filter?

    Does it smell bad? Usually when it becomes anaerobic that particular bacteria creates hydrogen sulfide which smells pretty bad. If it doesn't have a bad smell to it I'd say it's probably ok to use but I would get that opinion seconded before if act on it. If you have another tank or access to...
