    Industrial Shelving For Multiple Tanks

    Lov him too. I watch too many YouTube's, but it so awesome learning from other hobbyist that way. I think those lights are purrfect, especially the price! I like the duckweed, only for my goldfish though. But there are plenty of floaters, if you feel lites are too brite.

    Yea, I agree. My tds is about 38 out of tap, and my total hardness is about 150. So believe me, I get so confused with the numbers...? From what I understand and have read, it's all a guessing game. Because all the numbers don't matter if I don't get specific reading on my iron, potassium...

    Well, this is odd, to say the least! I did the phosphate test kit from API, and it says barely detectable phosphates...? Now I'm confused. Going to redo and do the kh/gh test next. I'll keep you updated. I'll tell which I'm sure you know, test kits (not cheap) so I'm befuddled at this time...hmm.

    Feng Shui ??

    I'd say, as long as you have a good cover on the aquarium it's fine. And as long as you have enough room to clean and access it, go for it.

    Having .25 ammonia. You shouldn't being adding fish at all. And especially at the rate you currently are. I understand it's hard to not want to disappoint a child on his bday. I think it would be more beneficial if you started the project slowly together and learning is the greatest gift and...

    Update On Rhabdocoela.

    I went with the panacur based on what was said about rhabdocoela being not effected by planaria ZERO. There so much conflicting info on the internet, it's hard to know what is and what isn't. I've used pan c before and had some luck. We'll see tomorrow. Fingers crossed. Do you think my clown...

    Update On Rhabdocoela.

    Ty for responding. Yea I thought of a few different things, but I actually saw them go right under her shell. There are a lot of tiny ones. Being that they aren't planaria per say (the bad ones) it's not as bad as it could be. It's just the numbers have increased. And all the gravel vac and...
