    Starting over with Drain-O

    So, I recently moved to a new state and I have moved in with family until I get a job. I had to rehome and sell all of my aquarium stuff except my 10gal and my ACF, Drain-O. So, I moved and had Drain-O in a 10gal for less than 2 weeks. Last week I bought a 30gal and today I finally set it up...

    OK, I have never fed BBS, live or frozen. I went to the store to get more worms the other day and picked up some frozen BBS. Now, I feed frozen bloodworms and have no problems with them, just thaw and squirt them into the food dishes. SO...Today I thawed two blocks of BBS and they STUNK...

    Bioload estimation

    We all talk a lot about bio-load, the ammount of fish waste and such. When you talk about bioload, do you give exact numbers? Do you give the exact ammount of ammonia a fish would produce in a given ammount of time, and the ammount of ammonia fish poop would produce if given a chance to...

And that gives Drain-O and his new room mate (not here yet) about 15gal, which is fine since they are the smallest species of ACF and don't...
