    Crusty, Rusty Buildup?

    If it were me...I'd toss it and buy a new one...seems like it had some water seepage and corroded something. Better safe than sorry.

    Good Fish For A Beginner?

    Most of your starter tanks come with a filter and light, I'm sure a small heater would be ok. However, I'd consider maybe a school of smaller fish. They are just as interesting and are fun to watch interact with each other. There are a few species out there that don't necessarily require a...

    Wobbly Guppy...happened Overnight

    Thank you for your insight. I had never thought about it until you mentioned the Ph and, yes I do have very soft city water out of the tap. My Ph reads about 7 out of the tap, but my TDS reads around 25, so that may be an issue. I also had 2 other female guppies expire after giving birth (I...

    Feeding Cories - How Do You Assure They Get Their Share?

    I feed both flake and pellet at the same time, but I also have a bigger tank with more fish. Algae wafers seem harder and the other fish don't bother them that much...I drop in one or two of those (I have 7 cories), that way the cories still have something to munch on after the feeding frenzy...

    Injured Fish

    I have a well established community tank, all parameters are good, fish are healthy and everything is fine. I fed my fish earlier tonight and my neon tetras like to go after the sinking fish pellets. Well, it appears that one went after a pellet that was between a piece of drift wood at the...

    Need Tds, Gh And Kh Advise For Neo Shrimp

    Sorry for the confusion everyone. I am waiting on my API kit for Gh and Kh, so I used the test strips for a quick comparison. And, yes, I think it is ppm according to the bottle. Also as far as the original post, I should have clarified...the first two pics is of T1, the second two is of T2...

    Need Tds, Gh And Kh Advise For Neo Shrimp

    I have no idea...I do have some shells in there and some dead coral that I got from overseas that has been sitting in a jar for ages, but I don't know how my parameters differ so much. I mean, I'm glad I have great tap water, but it does nothing to help my shrimp...lol

    Need Tds, Gh And Kh Advise For Neo Shrimp

    I've had them about 3 weeks now.. I've seen no molts and I thought I would during transition and water changes, but nothing yet. They all seem to be doing well, except for one I found today laying at the bottom of the tank.

    Need Tds, Gh And Kh Advise For Neo Shrimp

    I have 2 tanks set up for shrimp, all water parameters are good. T1 is a small 2.5 gal " mildly planted" that has some small mystery snails and about 6-8 basic neos in it. It is cycled and I am not heating it, but average tank temp is around 70. I have one berried female in it. T2 is a 10...

    Question Increasing Bio-load

    there is no magic way of producing "more bacteria" unless you add it or go through the process slowly. Or if you have another established sponge from another tank or established filter media, then maybe it would help.

    How Does My Tank Look?

    i have 2 tanks with corys in them, one has the 3 albinos, and the other has 3 albinos and 3 bronze (I think), and in all honesty, I never see them "hanging out" together. They are crazy and very cute. I also got mine from petsmart...lol haven't had any issues what so ever with them and I put...

    How Does My Tank Look?

    I love your endlers and your rasboras, I want to get some one day. I have a 10 gal "nano" set up with 12 rummy nose rasboras, 9 golden dwarf barbs, 3 albino cory's and about 20 red cherry shrimp. I think you would be ok adding a couple more cory's. And, yes, sometimes they "freeze...
