    Help Buffers Make No Sense... Please Help!!

    After finding Seachem’s acid and alkaline buffers, I thought that it would be a perfect solution to my pH problem. So I started using it on my water changes. I remove 10 gallons of water from my tank. I fill up a plastic box with 10 gallons of water and add Prime, as well as the buffers. So I...

    Help My Cycle Isn’t Continuing. Please Help!!!

    You were right! The cycle quickly reduced the ammonia after a water change. But since my nitrates were so high, I think I have to do two to three more water changes just to get nitrates down below 10ppm...

    Calcium Carbonate And How Exactly Does It Work?

And what do you mean when you said “KH tends to buffer to a pH of 7.4- 7.5.”? Do you mean that with any kH (except 0)...

    20 Gallon Tank How Many Phoenix Rasboras/chili Rasboras?

    Thanks! I’ll get about 25 with some amanos once my tank can process 3 ppm ammonia in 24 hours. Could these guys eat 1mm sized pellet food? I do have flake food and baby brine shrimp.

    Question Detritus Worms In Cycling Tank

    Oh my gosh! Glad u r ok. And no, it isn’t copper based. If I was it would kill shrimp. Pretty sure it’s safe for scaleless fish, but you should look into that. Also when I was in 8th grade, I didn’t know anything about ammonia. It was a experiment for class and my friends told me to smell and I...
