  1. Is this fluval CO2 Kit Good Enough for A 20 gallon tank? Also what substrate is generally best for plants?

    It worked great for me but was tedious to get the right BBPS every morning, it was usually around 4 so it took me a while of playing with the valve to get it proper. Unfortunately one night my room got really cold and I think my canister must have expanded/shrank and I lost all 1400psi that was...
  2. Does my betta have fin rot or is he nipping himself

    The hammock or some floating plants would make a nice resting spot. He will probably be ok in the home tank, bettas are pretty hardy as long as you keep the tank and water clean. However a hospital tank is never a bad idea to have on hand. Flaring in excess can be bad and cause fin damage but...
  3. Dreaded BBA! Need a beginner C02 setup

    Proper co2 setup is certainly easier to work with but like stated above can cost a pretty penny.. If budget is an issue you could try starting with a DIY setup at a portion of the cost and get an idea of how it works and how it'll affect your tank. In the meantime save for the paintball tank...
  4. Does my betta have fin rot or is he nipping himself

    Fin nipping can be a sign of stress or aggression. This does look like it could be a combination of both nipping and mild fin rot but likely began with the nipping by the looks of the tail. Having torn and damaged fins opens the possibility for further infection. Pinholes in the fins are easily...
  5. Sick goldfish laying on tank bottom

    Interesting, I did not know that. I was never fast enough to catch it and act upon it. I had 4 guppies in a 10 gallon that all died within a month or so resembling symptoms of nitrate poisoning but the green neon tetras were perfectly fine and still are to this day. That kind of threw me for a loop...
  6. Sick goldfish laying on tank bottom

    Sounds like it might possibly be nitrate poisoning, lying on the bottom of the tank, loss of energy and appetite, labored breathing etc. IME the fish has never pulled through but they also usually pass within 1 to 2 days. If this fish has been affected since Saturday then perhaps they are better...
  7. First vacation - what do I do to prep?

    I honestly can't believe I didn't think of this till now which solves my biggest issue. Good thing you asked because my vacation is in 2 or 3 weeks!
  8. Question Wireless planted tank light?

    I'd go out on a limb and say probably not specifically for a planted aquarium. But I did recently get some really nice battery powered lights that are remote controlled to light up my bedroom steps at night and the backs have velcro pads to hang on the wall/ceiling and such.. I kind of thought...
  9. First vacation - what do I do to prep?

    Feeding for me was the hardest part because no one I live with knows proper portioning haha. I would definitely recommend a cheap timer for the lights that way the plants still get some but maybe set it shorter so it won't encourage algae. Other then that a nice water change before you leave...

    What does the warning say? Usually you have to save the set up then export it to the light itself. Would you be able to post a screenshot of the settings you're trying to make work or perhaps the warning as well?

    I got the planted freshwater light but I assume they all use the same app. Been playing with it myself but it's so you can split up your light period.
  12. Big storm coming

    Heating would depend on your temp in the house and usually takes a few hours to change drastically, perhaps overnight. For example my room being in the attic might change 20 degrees or so overnight so I probably would not be as safe. Filterwise would depend on what you have in the tank and size...
  13. What to do with amano larvae?

    Not a thing! I have 6 in a 10 gallon with 2 males and 4 females the berry every week or so. With black sand as a substrate I've never found any eggs around the tank having been dropped and never any issues with bloated or overfed fish. I assume they just get filtered out or would deteriorate...
  14. How Do I Give Garlic To Goldfish?

    Ah I see. Yeah I imagine as long as you avoid dropping the actual bits of garlic in you should be good. It should still do what it needs to do.
  15. How Do I Give Garlic To Goldfish?

    Just add some to some water and let it soak. Garlic guard or plain juice would probably be easier then using cloves or minced simply because the water wont have to dilute it before the food is able to absorb it. You're after the juices to begin with because it's the smell of it in the water the...
