If those were my only 2 options, I would go with the work table. That card table is not strong enough.
The 1 caveat, is that I am only seeing nails in the work table. I would reinforce with some screws, or maybe even some lag bolts.
It sounds like the diaphragm has worn out. Have you opened it up to look at it/them?
If that's the case, I would contact the company about a replacement. If they can't replace them, a little silicone to cover the tear might get the job done.
I have a 10 gallon tank I want to overfilter and be able to grow some Pothos in. I have a list that I'm hoping can be fulfilled.
1. Over sized for tank
2. Adjustable flow so I don't freak out the inhabitants
3. Good sized tank for filtration media and room for Pothos roots
4. Good quality...
I had placed 2 male Pseudomogil furcatus and 4 females in my newer tank. Before I knew they were jumpers, 3 of the females became carpet biscuits. I went back to the store to replace them and they had just gotten some new stock. After a couple of weeks, it became painfully obvious that...
The 1st plant is java fern. The next one appears to be a sword, but I'm not 100% on the species. I'm struggling with the 3rd, but a closer picture would help. The last one is an Anubias of some kind - likeli barteri.
Those are Beamswork lights, which I was going to recommend.
This one from the same seller, will give you better PAR ratings, however. At 25" above substrated, it will probably have you in the low, possibly mid range.
Yes, surprisingly so. I bought a tiny pea puffer and put it in a 65 gallon, well-established, planted tank with a bunch of fish much bigger than it was before I knew their reputation. It was the size of a pea and within 2 days had every other fish on the run and numerous fins paid the price.
You may want to keep an eye on CO2art.co.uk. They sent one of the very experienced regulator guys on the Planted Tank forums 1 of their new dual stage units that is set to come out this week or next. He had very good things to say about it and the prices are likely to be very reasonable.
Flourish is primarily made of the macronutrients for plants, like potassium nitrate & potassium sulfate. It has some others, including some of the trace elements that plants need, but it is my understanding that Flourish by itself doesn't meet all the trace needs of plants. Adding Flourish Trace...
The info above on the Rotala is dead on.
The small shoot coming off the Moneywort can be removed at their base, just near the main stem, and replanted to grow a new stem. Or you can leave it as-is to make the plant bushier.
Guppies - positive
Other baby fish - positive
Sometimes, it's unavoidable. Some people take apart a shower scrunchie and cut off a piece to rubber band over the end of the siphon tube. This will prevent all but the smallest critters being sucked up.
I just bought some plant anchors. They are plastic discs with cuts in the middle. You slide in the plant and then put the anchor in the substrate.
I haven't had a chance to use mine yet, but they would probably work very well for you.
That python is gorgeous.
Your new reptile is much like a human baby - head so much bigger than body. So, were you setting up the enclosure for another lizard, or were you preparing it for when you bought another?
You have gotten quite a bit of good advice above, but a coup;le things should be mentioned.
First, once the water has fresh dechlorinator added, you need to wait 24 hours to add the TSS.
Second, although danios have a good chance of seeing your tank through the cycling process, a fishless...
There certainly are no guarantees, but you can find many discussions on these forums where people have had zero problems with the dwarf crayfish.
Mine were kept with guppies, Peacock gudgeons, Bolivian rams, serpae tetras and angelfish.
As a general rule, they are peaceful and usually leave other fish alone. At one point, I had 8 dwarf crays in my 65 gallon tank and they never bothered any other fish or plants. You can also find them on Aquabid and Elite inverts. Ms. Jinkzd may have them also.
One of my favorite professors in college was a microbiologist. Fast-paced, energetic, and fun were common adjectives used for her.
She had a Master's degree, which was very rare for teaching at that level. The usual Doctor that taught the class was away on sick leave.
If all Master's...
With your chlorine binder, you want to add enough to treat th whole tank, directly to the tank just before you start adding back the fresh water.
The water flow through the Python creates the suction to pull water from the tank.
My year old angelfish paired off this past week and I had the pleasant surprise of finding eggs this afternoon! The problem is, they are toward the top of the aquarium on the glass. Normally, I do water changes on Sundays, but this will leave the eggs uncovered.
So, how do I get fresh...
Some nice driftwood pieces with with anubias or mosses attached always look good.
You could also add some nice swords or Aponogetons. Those fill out quite a bit of width and height, if you pick the right ones.
You don't need to do anything with biomedia. The exception is if there is a lot of gunk attached to it. Then just a quick rinse in aquarium water to knock off the excess. The biomedia is where the beneficial bacteria live, so it is important to leave them intact.
When you rinse out the pads...
