    How do you feed your RCS?

    Mine eat whatever NLS pellets the fish miss, and I throw the shrimp pellets and algae wafers in while. I use the wardley pellets they break up very quickly.

    Important Another quick question..

    Hello! Changing the water before the safe start has come out of its dormant state and established in your filter, will cause it to fail. You should not start testing during the 2 weeks so you don't panic. I would wait out the whole 2 weeks before deciding whether or not to add another bottle...

    Anyone have one of the Tetra Whisper ex series of filters?

    Technically if the filter has bio media and carbon, changeing the carbon out should be ok. If you want to use carbon, you will nerd to change it out about once a month. However you can choose to not use it, I personally only use it to remove meds, so I do not have it all the time, actually only...

    Are we talking the packs with dwarf lillies, aponogeton and onion plants in them? Lol, ok nevermind, you answered before I got finished. No, you don't need to do anything specail to wake them up. If they don't sprout, mail them back to the company and they will send replacements.

    How to get rid of Columnaris?

    It is my understanding the biggest threat to it spreading is the fish nibbling on a infected fish. I don't know of fish building a immunity to it, so I am not sure about that. New fish would be more likely to catch it if they where stressed or otherwise unhealthy , because their immune system...

    power outage filter won't work

    I sat down by the canister with it all set up and the canister with water in it except the end of the tube that hooks to the canister unhooked. I blew into the tube and the water from the tank came rushing out at me. I had to hookit up fast, and got a tankwater shower, but it worked.

    Hi! New tank and questions.. picture included.

    Hello! Welcome to Fishlore! Sounds like you are off to a good start this time! I would up the schools to at least 6. The danios will occupy the top of the tank. I personally would trade them out for a tetra, the danios would do better in a 20 long. Platies willll do fine with those fish, gut...

    Question catch fry and shrimp easy??

    I have been netting RCA out of my tank for a month. Each time I think I got them all, a shrimplet I could not see grows enough to be seen. For netting them I find if I corner the shrimp with the net, they tend to just jump in it, then I pull pull up on the net holding it vertically, creating a...

    The cheapest option would probibly be a regular hood that takes incandescent lights, replacing the bulbs with aquarium CFLs.

    How many fish can be added at once?

    Theoretically, yes. But since you cannot measure the bioload of what a full tank will produce, it is safer to introduce your stock a little at a time.

    re stock

    That seems a bit crowded to me. Maybe not bioload wise, but having that many fish occupying the same areas . Also ottos need a school, and can starve easily, so I wouldn't keep them with any other algae eaters. Honestly I would do 8 guppies 15 neons 10 harleqiun rasboras 6 ottos or the bn 8...
