    How Do I Actually -- How I Do - -My water changes

    Thanks Sorg67. I've been at it for over a year and still learning. As was said -- and as the car commercials say -- your actual mileage may vary. Tony

    How Often Do You Feed Your Fish?

    I feed twice a day .. a pinch of flakes for the top/ middle feeders and a pinch of bug bites for the bottom feeders. I try to be cautious not to over feed on this schedule. That's the biggest danger I see. Every week or so I like to put some veggies (cucumber/ zucchini/ spinach) in for them to...

    Cory's and mollies

    First, I do a pinch of flakes for the mollies and guppies. While they're distracted (ooo-FOOD!) doing a feeding frenzy on the floating flakes, I do bug bites for the cories. The bug bites sink and then the cories get their meal. Tony

    How Do I Actually -- How I Do - -My water changes

    This is great .. I was hoping for opinions on what I do and I appreciate all of them. Just looking for a better way. I dunno -- I thought you were supposed to. Admittedly I was never sure about this, so I see this as one change to make -- although I do like to let the water warm up a bit. Tony

    How Do I Actually -- How I Do - -My water changes

    I thought I might post a thingie on how I do my water changes. I have two 25 gallon tanks and do a 30% water change every week, one tank on Saturday and one on Sunday. First off, I have two 5 gallon plastic buckets. I got these at Walmart. They are food grade and non-BPA. I fill both and add...

    Green Peppers?

    Based on the posts I gave it a try in both my tanks. I put a quarter of a green pepper in a cup of water and then in the microwave for 60 seconds. In one tank I put it on a skewer that I have for the tank only so that it was in the upper one third of the tank. In the other I anchored it in the...

    A Day At The (snail) Races....

    And they're off, and if snails had necks it would be a neck and neck race as they blindingly speed toward the finish line and no doubt will result in a photo finish as snail number 1 pulls ahead as they round the corner of the tank in this exciting and slow-paced world of a snail. We'll pause...

    What Type Of Fish Is This Little One?

    When I brought up my 2nd tank -- and stocked it with plants and fish, my wife and I discovered a little stowaway in the plants. The little one has grown -- but we don't know what type of fish it is. We thought it was a guppy, but we aren't sure. Any one have any ideas? Stowaway by Tony_P posted...
