    Question About Carbon & Where To Place It

    I built a canister filter using 4" PVC and I'd like to add some activated carbon. I was wondering how best to place this in the filter. I currently have a coarse sponge, polyfill, and bioballs. I was thinking that adding the carbon between two layers of polyfill might be best. I'm not sure...

    Treating Parasites In White Cloud Minnows

    I have a pair of White Cloud Mountain Minnows that are showing signs of parasites. Their bellies are swollen and I've seen one of them with white poop. They show no signs of being sick, as they're active and they eat well. I noticed this about two weeks ago, thought they were constipated and...

    Moving Biomedia Into A Temporary Filter

    I set up my 20 gallon aquarium in March, and I built a canister filter out of 4" PVC pipe. It's developed a small air leak, and I need to take it apart to reseal it. It'll take a day or two for the silicone to cure, so I ordered a Marineland Penguin HOB to use in the meantime. I plan to take the...

    Dark Theme For Forum?

    I've looked at the settings and have only found Fishlore & Original themes. If there is already a dark theme and I've missed it, I'd appreciate it if someone can point me to it. If not, I'd love to see a dark theme added. I do use a browser extension that changes sites to a dark mode, but it...

I've been feeding them Easy Fry Food from Aquarium Co-op, along with an occasional bit of freeze dried blood worms (I smash them & soak them a bit before feeding these). I've read that they may be constipated and feeding...

    Help Needed For A Chain Sword

    I planted my tank (20 gallon tall) a bit over two months ago, and this Chain Sword has turned a pale yellow-green. It started out dark green, but after a few weeks, it had turned this color. It didn't melt nearly as much as my other plants (Valisnaria and Bacopa Caroliniana), but some leaves...

    How Tall Will A Marble Queen Sword Grow?

    I have a 20 gallon tall tank and I'd like to add a Marble Queen sword in the back. The site I'm looking at claims they have slow to moderate growth and height is listed at 6-12". I've read that Amazon Sword will grow very large, and assumed the Marble Queen would be similar, but if they only...

    What To Feed Juvinile Wcmm?

    I just bought my first fish: a dozen juvenile WCMM. They're all about 1/2 in long, and it was suggested that they're about two months old. I do have a few that seem to be a bit smaller/younger, though. I bought a small container of flake food (Omega One brand) and crushed it as fine as I could...
