    Bolivian Ram Behavior

    Okay so now I have 3. 2 of them are acting completely normal and 1 of them is swimming against the glass back and forth acting sort of weird. Is this normal this early?

    Bolivian Ram Behavior

    Thank you so much. I’ve been looking forward to this day, I did a large water change and checked the parameters right before I got them. They are babies and I can’t wait to see them grow.

    Fishless Cycle Questions!!!

    I dosed the ammonia back up to to 1.0 ppm and it’s back to 0! I think I’m cycled!! I just did a 15% water change to get my nitrates down a bit, added 40 more drops of ammonia which= 1ppm ammonia. I waited an hour and tested the ammonia again and it was at 0.5 ppm ammonia, so I redosed 8 more...

    Cycling My First Tank

    4 ppm is an optimal amount of ammonia for the beneficial bacteria to consume. If you go over that, say 5 ppm or more, the nitrite reading will skyrocket, altering your pH potentially and stalling your cycle. I used Dr. Tim's pure ammonia and got an extremely fast cycle. Dosing your tank in a...

    Driftwood Question

    I’ve been soaking my driftwood in regular tap water (with no dechlorinator) to get most of the tannins out and I was wondering if I should let it air dry so chlorine doesn’t soak into my tank? Thanks!
