    Amazon Sword Runners

    My amazon sword is growing new leaves after it molted when I got it. I just have a question about runners. I have two possibly three runners. I heard that the plant does this when it’s stressed. So even though my plant is growing and producing new leaves it’s sending runners. I was wondering if...

    Aquarium Smelling

    It doesn’t smell like sulphuric more of like stagnant pond almost sour smelling could that be algae? I don’t have an algae problem inside the tank but to be honest I don’t know if I’ve ever cleaned under the lid. Also there is over 30 various fish including bristlenose, mollies, gourami...

    Goldfish Stocking

    I have a newly cycled 75 gallon Aquarium. I was wondering what everyone has done with fancies. I plan on having two fantail and 3 telescope. Would that be pushing it? I have an aqua clear 110 on it and I’m considering getting a xl sponge filter

    Goldfish Cycle

    Update. Patience has finally paid off. Ammonia down to zero nitrites at 2 and 5 nitrates. Working faster not the temperature is at 78. I’ll lower it back down before adding goldfish. I might be ready by next week!!

    Goldfish Cycle

    I was at my lfs and they had some it was only 5 dollars. I’ve had success in the past with it. I went back to trying to seed. I’m am just surprised the ammonia quit dropping. I thought with seeding it I would see a drop in a few days in at least the ammonia

    Goldfish Cycle

    I wasn’t expecting an instant cycle. The bottle bacteria im sure ate up the ammonia before dying off. I’m hoping seeding it will get me ready in two weeks. Also should I ramp up the heat and the let it go back down after it cycles? Would that be safe? I know bacteria grow faster when it’s warmer

    Goldfish Cycle

    I’ve been doing a fishless cycle on my new 75 gallon goldfish tank. When I first set it up the temperature was 67 and the ph was 7.4 and I used prime to treat the water. I waited a day then I added fritz turbo to help cycle the tank. I cycled 2 other tanks with it successfully. Now I’m at a bit...

    Am I Overstocked?

    I had an extra 10 gallon but it turned into my pea puffer tank lol. If I get another fish I’ll go buy a 10 gallon from Walmart for 30 bucks to quarantine. I was trying to prove to her that neons should wait lol. Do you think they would go good in a ten with two guppy’s?

    Nitrates Never Above 10

    I do a pwc every 7-10 days to keep the minerals up really. I was just making sure I wasn’t having a false sense of security. With a planted tank is it ok to overstock a little bit?

    Sponge Filters

    I’m thinking of going for sponge filters in my next tank that’s 125 gallons. Would you use two filters rated for 75 gallons three filters rated for fifty or one rated for 150?

    Buying A 125 Tank

    Thanks good to know! I love sponges because of the mechanical and biological filtration. Plus the pump and two filters will be a quarter of the cost of a good canister filter.

    Buying A 125 Tank

    Also with power outages if it’s too long wouldn’t a sponge filter be more likely to keep the BB alive than a HOB or canister?

    Buying A 125 Tank

    I’ve been reading about canisters and power outages. We deal with them a lot at my house because we are on the main line of out energy company. I’m worried about flooding would it be safer to use a HOB or sponge filter?

    Buying A 125 Tank

    was looking at canister filters mostly. What model would you recommend that is quiet and reliable? Not 100% against HOB because that’s what I use in my other tanks but I would need at least two and for that price I could get one canister for less.
