  1. How To Treat Fish Scrape

    One of my bigger fish tried to swim through a hole in my bark and got stuck! We had to push him through. He has a scrape.

  2. Too Much Algae & Plant Stems Rotting

    I have switched to a new substrate and planted new plants - it has been about 4 months since. At first I almost lost some of them. I was able to save some and they are starting to come back. But, my current issues are: 1 - too much algae on plants, rocks, glass 2 - difficult time with plants...
  3. Get Rid Of Roots High On Plant?

    So, I bought quite a few stem plants and am trying to get them rooted. I am noticing that there are quite a few that grow all up the stem. I have read that the plant will tend to rot just below a root. Should I be cutting off all the roots that are not at the bottom of the plant to avoid the...

  7. Led Lights For Plants

    Ever since I got my led lights I have struggled with algae. As soon as I try to use them full power, I start to get algae. I have begun using them quite dimmed and now I don't have an algae problem. But - i have to look at a dim aquarium all the time and I am pretty sure the plants need more...
  8. Reduce Gh In Aquarium

    I have an awful time getting my plants to grow/thrive/not die. All my water conditions and lights are perfect except the Carbonate Hardness and General Hardness. Carbonate Hardness is 71.6 but General Hardness is more than 400 - off the charts! I was surprised when I had my well water tested...
