    Help Overstocking 37-gallon?

    I really wish I had another tank but you know guppies are already established in the tank and I don't have enough time to get a new tank (I also don't want to waste money). It is what it is... I know that the angels are aggressive when they start to bread and get territorial but I just wanted to...

    Help Overstocking 37-gallon?

    True but I am ordering from the WetSpot and they have a minimum quantity of 6 endlers (consists of 3 males and 3 females). So I can't really change the quantity of the number of endlers I get. I wish I could...

    My Final Cycle Test

    I don't have prime, I have the rival, api stress coat. I did do my water change and I accidentally left the syphon in the tank so I did a 95% water change.

    My Final Cycle Test

    Just about 24 hours ago I added 4 ppm just to see if it would cycle that much and here were my results... About 30 mins ago I tested the ammonia, Nitrite and nitrate. My results were this... Ammonia: 0.25 (as the usual) Nitrite: 0.375 Nitrate: 120 I was astonished at the 0.375 of nitrite. For...

    My Final Cycle Test

    Just a quick question... when you do bump into those times where nitrate levels have been high what percentage water change do you take out when doing a water change?

    My Final Cycle Test

    Completely forgot to reply this post yesterday. So sorry The nitrite seems to do its thing and doesn’t seem to say anywhere >0 ppm of nitrite so I don’t pay too much attention on the nitrate but I appreciate the concern because I almost forgot about nitrites! I am happy so far with my cycling...

    Recommended Beginner Plants

    Definitely recommend Anubias nana because it is a tiny low-level plant which is what most people recommend! You could look into the low-level beginner plants list such as Swords and Vallisneria. Here is a good article you could look at: Top 5 Easy Aquarium Plants

    Nitrates And Getting Them Lowered

    Sorry if I am off topic but is anyone having 0.25 in their ammonia tests? Just wondering because I seem to hit 0.25 and never 0.

    Is This 14 Gallon Tank Overstocked?

    Totally forgot to look at the filtration thanks for reminding me! I agree I wouldn't say it is too bad but not to the point where you can forget about it!

    Help Swim Bladder Maybe?

    I think it is swim bladder by the description, you can medicate the fish but I can't think of anything else. Sorry, maybe someone else in the forum can help.

    Hob Or Canister

    Why pay some money for another filter even though you have a spare filter?

    Nitrates And Getting Them Lowered

    I disagree with the 40, it isn't completely safe. I suggest 5-20.

    Is This 14 Gallon Tank Overstocked?

    Yes very; it depends on how well you do your water changes for it to be successful. If you are that passionate about your tank then yes you have a slight chance of making it a successful tank. Although it will be hard to maintain the bioload because the tank is overstocked.

    Nitrates And Getting Them Lowered

    You could get Seachem Prime as it will detoxify ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate in 24 hrs. Use Seachem Prime after water change since nitrate levels will go up because of the tap water.

    Fishless Cycle Question

    If you pass 5 ppm with either ammonia or nitrite you will have bad results and damaging the nitrogen cycle. You did not screw up with the water change I suggest you wait until BOTH ammonia and nitrite are 1 ppm (highly suggested.) DO NOT keep the ammonia and nitrite levels high. After you hit...

    My Final Cycle Test

    You know how if you pass 5 ppm with either ammonia or nitrite is it possible with nitrate that if you meet a measurement it will have the same results when you pass 5 ppm with ammonia or nitrite.
