    Undergravel Filtration??

    Read up on the nitrogen cycle if you haven't already started doing that. The info here is pretty simple to understand. Are there any fish in the tank? You might be doing a fish in cycle if this is a new setup and you have fish. The air stone in the tube helps pull water up the tube and the...

    Undergravel Filtration??

    Can you take a picture? Usually the gravel acts as the filter media so you can't use sand very well. but there are different set ups.

    A bachelor school might be a bit nippy towards the rasboras. I would say 1 male with 5 females or perhaps 2 males with 5 females if you could.

    Question "mineralizing" Potting Soil

    Indeed you can. Organic cat litter(clay) and most other clays are just a bit more diverse. Most people use diatomaceous earth in diatom filters to polish the water. I used pulverized lava rocks in my soil.

    Need Diy Advice On Caves/tunnels For Larger Fish....

    Acrylic spray paint can change the color and is safe after it dries. A hole saw can cut the side hole cleanly if you have one. Silicon can add decor to it or you can roll it in gravel and silicon or sand etc.

    Question Bog Terrarium?

    Feeding them can be a pain but they are cool pets. Maybe some gravel on the very bottom to help with drainage and/or use the airline to ensure the substrate stays fairly aerobic.

    99.9% chance they are elsewhere in the tank as well. What kind of snails do you have? I know badder snails and many others will eat hydra.

    How Close To Cycled Am I?

    I would guess about 30-45 days out. .25 is pretty low to start a cycle so it will take a long time still. And theres a good chance the .25 is a false positive and your tank hasn't started to cycle at all due to there being no ammonia source to start the cycle in the first place.

    Make your own solution. Use potassium nitrate and distilled water. Figure what xx amount of the KNO3 equals xx ppm in a gallon of water and test against that. Aside from that the equipment you would need is very expensive. Like $150 for a simple food grade nitrate detector amd up to several...

    Question Question About Feeding My Community Tank

    You should blanch it and remove any uneaten portions after a while. Feeding their normal food won't hurt anything but make sure you aren't overfeeding. It shouldn't hurt anything else in the tank.
