    Question My Betta died

    Sorry for your loss:( Wait, 6-7 Cory’s in a 10 gallon? What kind are they? Corydoras catfish need at least 20 gallons, especially that many.

    Guppy and Oxygenation

    Most of the api test kits read almost .25 even when it’s zero, mine is the same way, a lot of members here have the same thing. I’ll bet you it’s zero.

    I was wondering if there would be substances on the beach that would do the same thing? Since I would be collecting rocks and sand and algae from the sea that would most likely have crushed and dead barnacles, corals and shells and such in it so it could sustain its natural kh and ph for a...

    Will their be natural kh/ph raisers in the sand, live rock, etc...? I’ve read a little on this but am still trying to grasp it. Wouldn’t certain substances increase the KH and keep it stable for longer periods of time (like crushed corals, certain substrates, etc), thus, wouldn’t those...

    Guppy and Oxygenation

    If you have 2 filters (even small ones) and an air bubbler (even with low output), they shouldn’t be gasping. I would recommend doing daily-every other day water changes until your sure the cause of this, just to be safe. Better safe then sorry. Have you used any glues or soaps on anything on...

    Is Your Dream Tank Freshwater or Saltwater?

    I forgot to mention a couple hundred gallons with discus, neons, black neons, red skirts, black skirts, Julie and panda Cory’s, honey gouramis, a highfin common pleco (i don’t know if those exist but I sure hope they do), Val’s (background), baby tears (carpet) and elodea, chain swords, crypts...

    Water Change Frequency

    Weekly, I have a lightly stocked and heavily planted tank so I probably only need to do it every 2 weeks, but every week is more fun. Who else here thinks cleaning the tank day is the best day of the week? My family thinks I’m crazy for thinking this.

    Guppy and Oxygenation

    20 gallon, correct? It could be low oxygen, an air stone would help with that. how many gallons are the HOBs rated for? What kinds are they? When was the last time the impellers where cleaned? Do they run smooth?

    Guppy and Oxygenation

    Gasping can be caused by many things. What water volume is the tank? What are you water perimeters? Do you have a filter already?

    Thanks, I’d love to see that if you come by it. (And I’ll definitely be posting photos if I start one).

    Saltwater ecosphere help

    The salinity would not fluctuate at all because the goal is to have it sealed (air tight) in a jar so there is no evaporation. I do not see how the salinity would change. The goal is to add seawater and live rock and stuff and also enough algae and plant life so there will be adequate oxygen...

    Saltwater ecosphere help

    We usually go to brookings to go to the beach and the water is very clean where we go, I hardly every see any trash at all and the beach’s have a lot of life and I think they are really careful about pollutants (I think most everybody there are environmentalists). It seems a lot more interesting...

    Hi, lately I have been seeing a lot about sealed saltwater ecospheres in small jars and bottles and such. I was very interested in one. I was planning on asking to go to the beach my next birthday so I though it would be a great time to try. Has anyone done one of these before? I would really...

    Will Aquarium Salt Hurt My Inca Snail And Nerites

    If stability is not working then I wouldn’t keep using it, personally I would recommend tetra safe start or microbactor7 over stability only because I have more experience with them, and I think they have higher reviews. If the stability is not fresh then the good bacteria could be dead to...

    Will Aquarium Salt Hurt My Inca Snail And Nerites

    As for how often I think after doing a couple I would wait a while and let him try to reheal, if he doesn’t begin to heal in the next couple weeks the you could dip him a couple more times. Saltwater dipping is good, but to much saltwater dipping can do more harm then good (in my opinion). Like...
