    Waterloo’s First (future) Saltwater Tank

    ....*Sigh*...so. Just when I think I am set on a game plan I get a curve ball lol Yesterday, my boyfriend found a free bowfront tank on the curb and picked it up for me. (#RelationshipGoals...) anyway. Had a clear cut path for my freshwater water builds and now I’m thinking it’s about time I...

    Question Blasting Sand Substrate...myth Or Legend?

    So late last night was rummaging around Fish Lore and stumbled upon a topic I have never heard of. Using black diamond blasting sand as substrate. It’s cheap for starters. Most say it was clean and didn’t need rinsing prior to putting it in and saw it has been used successfully with already...

    Question Overwhelmed By Lights

    As my time in the fish hobby gets longer I keep getting more drawn into planted tanks. I love the look, feel and even the maintaining process of planted tanks. I want to get more involved and make my current 20 gallon tank a bit heavier planted. It currently has some amazon swords, java moss...

    Waterloo’s (future) Dawrf Puffer Tank - 10 Gallon

    Welcome! I found two 10 gallon tanks for free on Craig’s list a few months ago and have been sitting in my closet while I was cycling and starting my 20 gal. The 20 has been going for about 6 months now so figured it’s time to start working on tank number 2. I’m not 100% sure what I want to...

    Sudden Drop In Ph?!

    A Bittersweet Goodbye To My Pleco

    So some of you may have been following along but to catch up I had what I thought was a clown Pleco. However after joining this forum early in the week I quickly found out I have a common sailfin pleco. Not a good match for my 20 gallon. I felt awful for not doing the proper research and...

    5 Things I Learned

    I have grown up with tanks. We always had freshwater tanks in the house for as long as I can remember. Then when I hit early teens my step dad took a huge leap from freshwater to a 150 gallon salt water reef and fish tank. I helped out with mixing salt, set up water softener systems to sump...

    Pleco Vs Plants

    Good morning! So I love live plants in my tank and the benefits they bring and I am also in love with my common pleco. (Slurpy :happy For the most part I have Amazon Sword and a few moss balls. Plecos, like some may know, have no regard for plants and really don't care about ripping them up...
