    75 Gallon Tank Is Blue Green Algae Always Cyano?

    I couldn't pin point it, but my tap water already has a lot of nutrients, and I need to find balance with my fertilizer. Also, there isn't much current in the tank. But, more bubblers did help.

    75 Gallon Tank Is Blue Green Algae Always Cyano?

    I don't know if peroxide harms BB, so maybe that's something to try? H2O2 worked really well, but my underlying issue was still there so that's why it's been reoccurring.

    Help Possible Parasite In My Tank, Need Help Iding.

    That medication doesn't kill worms. It targets ectoparasites, malachite green isn't effective against planaria as far as I'm aware. It also has the potential to harm inverts. Planaria and other worms make themselves apparent through overfeeding and poor upkeep. They do eat dead plants and other...

    I've seen people use the dewormer with fish in, but I'm not sure about inverts

    75 Gallon Tank Is Blue Green Algae Always Cyano?

    Cyano has proven to be pretty stubborn for me. Hydrogen peroxide will kill it, but it may come back. I find it only comes back a lot when I skip water changes. Sometimes with something like cyano solving the underlying issue is the best way to go. With weekly manual removal I've been doing alright

    Help Possible Parasite In My Tank, Need Help Iding.

    Remove that one manually and see if more show up. To kill of planaria you're going to have to use some kind of dewormer. A lot of people use dog dewormers. I have never personally had to get rid of planaria, but there are tutorials on using dog dewormer to get rid of them. Fenbendazole is the...

    Probably planaria. Planaria are generally non harmful to fish but can harm invertebrates like shrimp.

    75 Gallon Tank Is Blue Green Algae Always Cyano?

    Look like cyano to me. If it looks like it's kind of in a sheet as opposed to fibers, then it's most likely cyano

    No I don't think you'll have any ill effects with one more dose. I'm only saying maybe hold bad on meds just because the redness could go away on its own and we don't want to stress the fish. Just keep a very close eye on it and see what changes happen. Could you get any pictures?

    If the fish had a whitish film on them, that could denote a protozoan skin infection and those are often responsible for red fins. If the fish are showing no symptoms anymore I wouldn't keep medicating. Are there only red fins left? Any film at all left on the fish? I don't often see prazi for...

    Can you give us the tanks parameters? How often do you do water changes? Is the tank cycled? Red fins could be hemorrhaging and that can result from poor water quality. With 2 fair fish in a 20 gallon you're going to have to do a lot of water changes. Can we see images? It's really best not to...

    Help Have No Luck With Planted Tank

    I do have the hood but it barely lights the tank and looks pretty bad lol. I was going for a pretty ambitious planted tank, but in all honesty I did get pretty lazy. Now that I have more of a schedule I want to give this tank a second chance. The cyano always goes away when i keep the lights...

    Help Have No Luck With Planted Tank

    I changed things because they weren't working before. I changed the 8 hours of light and flourish because the entire tank became overran with algae and I couldn't even see through it, and my plants melted and were covered in algae. When things really went down hill was when the cyano showed up...

    Help Have No Luck With Planted Tank

    I haven't been able to get liquid CO2 yet because of frequent trips and such, but the tank is overrun with cyano again and the crypt wendtii is no longer. Thinking of just restarting with the plants. Any suggestions? The cyano is making me tear my hair out.

    It's the celestron VX 8" EdgeHD. I used a blue lens filter and it was perfect for bringing out those lunar features and not blinding me We have a lens case that comes with all the colored lenses. I've used the orange one before, and it did bring out features, but I didn't like how the was moon...

    I took this picture of the moon a few days ago, and I just wanted to share it. Tried to get saturn but with an un-computerized telescope it's quite difficult
