    Nitrates Are Too High

    Invest in a python water change system for such a large tank you will not regret it. Shake your test solution bottles thoroughly. Test your water that you are replacing it with before the change. Add plants. Dont overfeed . Relax.

    Question 56 Column Community

    But if they will live longer I will change it if possible. I thought both the angel and bn pleco enjoy 79 to 80 degrees. If so they should work with all the others except the pandas. So I could trade in the pandas and the single harlequin. Then stock the tank so..... 2 platinum Angel's 1...

    If I wanted to add a CPO Dwarf Orange Crayfish it would not overload the bio load would it? I realize you feel they are overly aggressive for this tank.

    Ok, so I will get rid of the panda's and stock my tank this way..... 2 platinum Angel's 1 Dwarf flame Gourami 2 blue eyed lemon bristlenose plecos 2 german Blue Rams. They should all get along and enjoy the same tank parameters without stretching the bio load. Right?!?

    Question 56 Column Community

    I may be wrong but apistogramma may be to fierce for a community tank. I know Kribs and Angel's are cichlids but they are easier on community tanks. I have had kribs in a previous time in a community tank. They were fine but need lots if cover and hidey holes to break up their territory...

    Question 56 Column Community

    Ok. So if I get rid of the Panda's and turn up the temp to say running between 77 and 78, do not get the crayfish or the rams but instead get the Kribensis, this should not biologically overload the tank and the fish should be fine?

    Some Things We May Not Know As Beginners.

    Love the Python warning!!! I would add to that warning while doing the water change with a python, try to not get distracted (cleaning the plants, moving things etc.)while in fill mode. I did that and before I realized it I was overtopping!!! YIKES!!! Good thing I have tile floors.
