    Re-Thinking Plant Heavy Tank

    Even if it does become overgrown... In my opinion it's beautiful. Plus those plants suck harmful nutrients that could hurt your fish out of the water... Win/win if you ask me. This is my 40 gallon heavily planted

    All but a disaster

    I wouldn't worry about that. You may reduce your water volume (minimally) in the process, but if you're heavily planted like a walstad tank usually is... should be fine. In addition, you're also adding a ton of surface area for beneficial bacteria to colonize and mulm and fish food to replenish...

    All but a disaster

    I second the gravel cap idea. That soil is soooooo beneficial for your plants. Just need to figure out how to keep it on the bottom.

    Ph Too High Help

    Hi and Welcome to Fishlore. As others have said, if your tap water is 7.4 ph, then daily water changes should bring it down to 7.4. I imagine they recommended small water changes so that the shift from 8.8ph to 7.4ph is a gradual one. Less stress on the fish that way.

    Question My Harlequin Rasbora Keep Dying One By One, What Could Be The Cause?

    I'm still in the camp that it has something to do with the behavior/aggression (Pecking order) or the fish themselves (source). If the rest of your fish are still fine and only one or two Harlies are getting picked off a day.... Then I doubt it's bacterial infection. Something like columnaris...

    Question My Harlequin Rasbora Keep Dying One By One, What Could Be The Cause?

    The ottos, corys, and shrimp all have normal behavior and no symptoms? Where did you get the raspboras?

    Working On Planted Build

    There are other low tech plants that may not take quite as long (dwarf sag, crypts, jungle val, hornwort, water sprite, wisteria... just ideas... your tank) Also I agree that aquasoil is uncecessary at this point if you have dirt blow your lava rocks. My planted tank is just dirt with a gravel...

    Question My Harlequin Rasbora Keep Dying One By One, What Could Be The Cause?

    Did you have a source of ammonia in the tank when you were adding beneficial bacteria (ie fish, rotting fish food, dosing ammonia yourself)? When you say you tested your water yesterday, what did you test it with? (be specific. i.e. tetra 5 in 1 test strips or "API Master freshwater test kit"...

    Question My Harlequin Rasbora Keep Dying One By One, What Could Be The Cause?

    Fish Pop-Eye Disease I would read that over. We must be missing some info here though. Can we go over how you cycled your tank and what test kit you used to establish the parameters you quoted above? Have you been testing PH as well? Is it possible you're overfeeding? How often and how much...

    What Could Be Wrong With My Guppy And How To Treat

    Hi and welcome to fishlore! I have never kept guppies, but I have heard plenty of stories of people buying pregnant guppies without realizing it. So, your son may be right. Does the fish have any other symptoms? How long have you had him? I'm sure more experienced members will know exactly...

    Question My Harlequin Rasbora Keep Dying One By One, What Could Be The Cause?

    Just my opinion, but if you aren't seeing any other symptoms and the other fish seem fine..... Probably due to stress of some sort (Whether it be water paramaters, aggression, the don't like the way one of the leaves sway haha seriously anything). Could add more cover with another (larger)...

    Question My Harlequin Rasbora Keep Dying One By One, What Could Be The Cause?

    What I'm wondering, since its only the raspboras... is if there is some aggression/hunting at night rather than disease.

    Choosing New Aquarium

    Unfortunately I don't know much about the kits with buillt in filters. I always start with a bare tank and build from there. I would imagine it would depend on what type of equipment or media you put back there.. You're welcome!

    Choosing New Aquarium

    Well if you already have knowledge of the nitrogen cycle and have taken care of fish in the past my advice is relatively useless. Get whatever you like better :) If you hadn't cared for fish before, I would have advised the bigger the better!

    29 Gallon Tank So Much Conflicting Information (angelfish/gourami & Tiger Barbs)

    The Gourami would be fine (probably). Personally I would try a moonlight or pearl gourami. I would NOT do a pair. There are also other options. You could do a small school of something else. For example... harlequin raspboras. Also, I'd stop asking for advice at the pet stores :-P

    29 Gallon Tank So Much Conflicting Information (angelfish/gourami & Tiger Barbs)

    Haha. Agreed there is a ton of conflicting information on tiger barbs. I think this is mostly due to the fact that they are sick twisted evil little fish. I keep a school of 5 in a heavily planted tank with 7 harlequin raspboras, an albino BN pleco, and a male apisto. In this setup, I've been...

    Peat Moss To Lower Ph

    If I'm not mistaken the number of drops is the "degrees of" kh/gh. So if the kh test changes color after 4 drops... you have 4 degrees of kh (which is good). Have to agree with the others that stated most tap water has minerals (particularly calcium, magnesium, and CaCO3) which can be really...

    Danio In Trouble

    Is it possible you were also experiencing ammonia spikes that led to the fishy deaths? Did you test the water after adding the pleco or before/after each fish died?

    Peat Moss To Lower Ph

    Complete and total hogwash if you ask me or Diana Walstad. My Ph is above 8. Always has been. Picture of my tank so you can see my growth. Like salt said, unless you have some rare fish or need certain breeding conditions I'd ditch the peat moss and use the tap as is.

    From Walstad To High Tech

    Oh no no! The gargantuan plant on the left is definitely an amazon sword. There are just argentine swords in there as well. Agreed though, the sag and vals just look like the tall and short version of the same plant haha
  41. SeanyBaggs123

    From Walstad To High Tech

    Next to the apisto, I think they're my favorite. They're pretty dumb though. I catch them trapped on top of the water lettuce looking for food and have to assist them back to the water from time to time. I'm also pretty sure they think they're tiger barbs Haha.

    75 Gallon...all This Room!

    My first question would be the source of the rainbows. If they're wild caught they probably all have pretty specific needs since they all come from different man made lakes and rivers, some of which are brackish, some of which have huge temperature swings etc... Maybe they're cross breeding...

    Hello and Welcome to fishlore! I agree with @e_watson09 that a picture would be helpful.

Good on you for upping it to a 10 gallon...
