    36-gallon Re-build

    Cool. Did you have to rinse the sand and how much does it move during water changes?

    Hard to say without pictures, but not generally an issue.

    Nice tank! Do you lose much sand to the vacuuming?

    Ich Outbreak

    I wish I could turn up the health! LOL Yes, it recommends a higher temperature to speed the life cycle.

    From my experience Danios like warmer water but I could be wrong.

    Ich Outbreak

    Took your previous advice and turned up the heat, did a water change, and dosed with Ich-X. Will repeat Wednesday.

    Random Fish Deaths

    Your pH is high and your temperature is low. The temp may be the bigger issue. Try going up to 78 and see if that helps. They could be bad stock as well.

    Should I Be Concerned?

    Many aquatic plants will do this. It might be because the roots got damaged when planting or it just really wants to grow. Mine did the same thing and they grow just fine. I’m not a plant expert, but sounds normal to me.

    Welcome! I’d say get 5-6 cory catfish. Depending on the substrate you can get a color that will pop. I have albinos with black substrate in my larger tank. After that, you’re likely at capacity.

    Post Disease Plants

    I recently had a mass outbreak of ich and possible other disease in one of my tanks. The tank was treated with General and Maracyn as well as Ich-X. I have some beautiful Val and Bacopa I would like to save if possible. Would those be safe to transplant to one of my other tanks? What are...

    36-gallon Re-build

    I plan on rebuilding my 36-gallon tank from the bottom up. I’ve got a good heater, plenty of light, and a Seachem 75 that will get brand new media. I’ve heard sand hold on to much less bacteria and is an amazing substrate but I have no experience with it myself. What are the pros/cons?

    Ich Outbreak

    Thanks but I’m likely past that point. I can home from a work trip and had two fish with blusging eyes, 4 with bloated bellies, and a massive ich outbreak. I’ll keep your advise in mind for the future.

    Ich Outbreak

    Ich-X, General cure, Maracyn, aquarium salt...water changes...ugh! The water quality is good and I think there are multiple issues going on. All of them are stressed from the treatment and such. I think it’s just a waiting game to see who is left when it is all said and done.

    Ich Outbreak

    After an outbreak, do I need to replace my filter media and plants or should they be ok? I’ve lost 6 so far. :(

    Ich Outbreak

    Anyone know how long this takes? I’m on day 3 of testing and they seem to be getting worse not better!

    Question Random Discussion...

    First, good luck at your meet! Second, I think that many of the fish deaths we see are just bad stock. I told my daughter to expect to lose half her fish in the first 6-months. I thought it would be under 3 honestly but not so much. The 10 her blue paradise fish killed don’t really count. LOL
