    0.75 ppm Ammonia in tap water?

    Yea the information on Prime is all over the place. As a beginner, I believed it detoxified ammonia. Then I learned that there is little to no public evidence that Prime detoxifies ammonia, so I changed my mind. Now I've ran my own tests and its clearly doing SOMETHING to the ammonia...

    The Fluval FX4 flow pattern?

    I was doing the same thing. I finally removed some media and realized it actually fits together when you don't stuff it full. What issues were you having by not having the trays stacked properly? Thanks. I didn't even realize there was an outer chamber, its so small.

    Does the water flow up or down through the chambers? Thanks!

    0.75 ppm Ammonia in tap water?

    Oh it definitely does. It’s an easy 2 minute test for me. Fill up 2 cups with tap, dechlorinate one. The dechlorinated will read at about .15 - .2 while the pure tap will hold right at .5 - 75 and won’t budge. Thanks for all that detail, very much appreciated. You seem spot on with your...

    0.75 ppm Ammonia in tap water?

    My tap water contains 3.3ppm Chloramine, but it’s also testing at 0.75ppm ammonia. I tested the ammonia after noticing my fish not doing great after water changes. I use Seachem prime and never had any issue with the 3.3ppm Chloramine but something seems to have changed in my tap water and I’m...

    How to prevent debris dump after restarting canister?

    Restarting my FX4 shoots a ton of crud back into the tank, I assume because its built up inside the return tube. I have a hairgrass carpet and it shoots waste all over the hairgrass carpet, which captures everything. Is there any way to prevent this aside from cleaning out the return tube...

    Alternate Foods for Betta?

    My Betta only takes to the bug bites pellets and frozen bloodworms. He won’t touch any flakes, any frozen brine/mysis shrimp, frozen daphnia, or live baby brine shrimp. That’s all I’ve got in my fish food arsenal. What else do you guys feed your Bettas? I’d like to give him more variety than...

    Ammonia in live BBS hatch?

    I could give it a try and see how time consuming it is. Thanks for the tips, what kind of reusable paper towel would you recommend? I've never even heard of such a thing :D

    Ammonia in live BBS hatch?

    Dang that won't work. I cant go around cross contaminating all the tanks and ponds each morning. I'm not concerned about ammonia, more about fermenting bacteria in the 82 degree hatchery and then putting it in the tanks each morning. I am curious and concerned why the BBS hatches are testing...

    Ammonia in live BBS hatch?

    Can you feed multiple tanks after straining them? I feed out live BBS to 3 tanks and 3 ponds.
