    Water Parameters For Multi's

    I added the live sand because the package says that it helps to increase the PH of my water. It says to use 1 lb. for every 10 gallons which is what I did. It's argonite live sand. It says on the package that it buffers ph? Is this not the right stuff? I do have the master test kit. Have...

    Water Parameters For Multi's

    What hardness and ph is your water? I have to do my first water change with the multi's. I did put Carib Sea live sand in with the pool sand when I set up their tank. They are in my water which is softened but I use both hard and soft water (soft water is on the hot tap) to do my water changes...

    Large Electric Yellows....can I add a small Clown Loach?

    Yes I'm also aware of that. I have been in the hobby for 9 years now. I was saying that he will be put into the 65 gallon shortly and once he gets too large for that tank he will be taken back to my LFS. But my concern right now is whether or not he will b safe if I put him in with 2 1/2 - 3...

    Yes I'm aware that the 40 isn't big enough long term. He will eventually be going into my 65 gallon when I get it up and running. Working on that right now.

I have some fairly large Electric Yellows in my tank, some are between 2 and 3 inches minus the tail fin. I would like to put a small clown loach in with them. They do have a small busynose pleco in...

    Nitrates?

    No worries! Percy, my turte has been living with his fish friends for 9 years. He would never think of eating them.

    Nitrates?

    Thanks for the reply and advice. I'm using a Nutrafin Nitrate Test kit. I don't have kits for ammonia or nitrite so I don't know the levels. In my 40 gallon breeder I have a 9 year old Mississippi Map turtle with his cichlid friends and a baby bristlenose pleco. My 29 gallon is a community tank...

    Nitrates?

    I have been in the hobby of keeping fish/turtles for about 9 years. The tanks I have now have been up and running with no problems for about 5 years. I must admit I haven't tested my tanks for years as far as water quality goes and have not really lost any fish. I have double the filtration...
