  1. Help with API nitrate test results fishless cycling

    Hi everyone, I'm fishless cycling with Dr Tim's ammonia and Tetra Safe Start+. I refuse to use fish. Don't want to risk any lives. Tank has no decor except for a sand substrate. Anyway, I've been at this for over a month. The filter is now processing 2.8 ml of ammonia in 48 hours. I would like...
  2. Hob Filter For Cory Tank

    Will be setting up a 20 gallon long tank to house 6 to 8 cories. The tank is only about 12 inches tall, so I'm a little confused about the 160 to 200 gph suggestion for HOBs, and the length of the intake tubes on these larger filters. Right now I'm looking at the Fluval C3, rated at 153 gallons...

    I have 60 gallon established tank that houses 2 angelfish and a bristle nose pleco. I've had the angels for 3 years. They had hexamita when I first got them, and it has showed up a 3 or 4 times over 3 years. Each time they were treated with metro and then symptoms were gone. I'm assuming...

  6. Angelfish Fin Rot Fungal Or Bacterial?

    Hello, I would be grateful for any advice you could give. For some reason, I can't update my tank profile.

  9. Hurricane Florence Canister Filter

    Hello everyone. My tank is established. It is predicted that we will lose power for up to a week or more. I have a small generator and enough gas to run everything but the heater (can do without) for about 15 hours. There's supposed to be flooding, so I may not be able to get more gas. The...

    Five days ago switched from plastic to lightly planted anubias, java fern, crypt spiralis, java moss and water wisteria. These were quarantined for a month first and treated with flubendazole and potassium permanganate. Added a new piece of spiderwood which I boiled first. Also added an aqua...
  11. Potassium Permanganate Question

    I've read that using Jungle Clearwater mixed with water as a dip for plants can help with killing bacteria and fungi on just purchased plants. After treatment, it says to rinse well and neutralize the Clearwater with Prime. My tap water contains chlorine. Should I be using unneutralized tap to...
  12. Spiderwood

    Just purchased a piece from a local fish store. Have read that most spiderwood starts to grow a white fungus, bacteria, whatever it is, a few days after being placed in the tank. Should boil it for a couple of hours and air dry it first? I'm planning on tying a java fern and some java moss to...

  15. Heater Stray Voltage

    I have two 150 watt Aqueon Pro heaters in my freshwater tank. They are about a year old and I've determined they are the source of the stray voltage, not the filter, pump, etc.. There is a grounding probe in the tank. I want to replace the heaters. Anyone out there know of a reliable brand that...
  16. Hith? In Bristlenose Pleco

    Another member was kind enough to help me diagnose HITH in my Angelfish whom I have unsuccessfully been treating for about a month with Kanaplex, Sulfaplex, and lastly Oxytetracycline flakes for what I thought was columnaris. I have a 60 gallon tank with a 55 gallon footprint. Water parameters...
  17. Angelfish Please Help Diagnose

    Not sure this is columnaris. Angels have had white on their mouths about 3 weeks. Treated with Kanaplex in the water for 4 doses. Seachem advised to stop treatment. The fish improved after the first dose then no additional improvement. Changed to 18 days of Sulfaplex. No change. White lesions...
