    Fish Fungus

    I am pretty sure I just lost my whole tank. about a week ago my Dwarf Frog shriveled up over night and died. Then about 3 days later one of my mollies died. Shortly after it was a dominoe affect and I am down to 2 tiger barbs that look extremely bad. I wish I could just end their lifes, I know...

    DIY Moon Lights

    I am awaiting my parts I have ordered to build myself a little moonlight. I am going to try and document it so that others can also build one if they wish. Any ideas on what to do for documentation? Video, Photos, Parts List? I am thinking all of the above, but curious since I have never done...

    Question for the electrician types

    I would cap it off with a twist cap and use electrical tape on it. Sounds to me from my experience with ballasts, that is a hot neutral that will leave the second set on for say moon lights. I would not attach it to other wires, just cap and tape.

    Breeder Box

    I am by no means an expert, probably not even a novice. However, from what I have read and experienced... Not very long. I put mine in for about 4 hours, she was so stressed and started to not move. I immediately pulled her out. When I woke up the next morning, she only had 3 fry I found. 1...

    Selling fry?

    How would I go about selling or giving away fry? The first set was 3 fry, but a week later another 20+ were swimming around. I have moved them to a breeder net, but they will overwhelm my tank. I am going to need to get rid of some and probably move my male away from the females. I want to leave...

    Sick or Injured?

    Well, she passed. I am thinking they were chasing each other and being new to the tank she hit something or like you said she may have got caught by the filter intake. It doesn't feel like it sucks too hard, but who knows.

    Sick or Injured?

    Anybody seen this? I seperated her, but I don't think she will make it. She is not eating. I don't know what happened. I just got her from the LFS 2 days ago. Any ideas? Best I could do was move her to my temporary 2 gal tank. Forgot to mention, it is her lip, mainly the upper lip.

    Help Heater Recommendations

    I know there is all kinds of controversy on UGF, but mine came with one and a HOB Filter. It was an established tank. I was just given another tank, 75 gal, and I am looking at having to buy everything for it. I am kind of steering away from what I have and going for a canister filter. Any...

    Help Heater Recommendations

    Ken, are they fully submersible? I want it fully submersed for when the water evaporates she doesn't have to worry about it not working. I am trying to make it idiot proof for my wife. Sorry, she likes the fish but not comfortable with the maintenance.

    Help Heater Recommendations

    I have 2 tanks, fixing to have a 3rd. I am trying to decide many things, one of which is a heater. Currently my thermostat is broke, so I am using a timer and watching it closely. So far I am good, but I don't want to take a chance. What are the good and bad everybody has experienced with...

    White Sediment in tank after cycle

    I bought a powerhead and installed it. It is helping slowly, but a few hours after I installed it I went to feed my fish and 1 Molly was dead. Everybody else is running ragged and eats well. I always try to find them all and she was at the bottom mouth wide open. I am pretty sure she was...

    White Sediment in tank after cycle

    I am using 100% RO Water from a local DIY. They are called The Windmill? I filled my entire system that way, and I did use water conditioner.

    White Sediment in tank after cycle

    I am wondering if my underground is not being used properly. I dont have a Powerhead installed. I am going to get 1 today. I think I need 2 since I have a 100 gallon tank and it has 4 towers from the UG.

    White Sediment in tank after cycle

    My tank looked as if it was not cleaning thoroughly, so I checked them and they were pretty bad. I am now realizing it might have been a bad idea. I knew now to change the Biowheel, but I thought the filters needed to be changed periodically. Oh, and to be clear I changed the filter/charcoal...

    White Sediment in tank after cycle

    OK, I will let it sit. I did the change yesterday. It is not really cloudy, just little white things floating in the tank. Only visible when within a foot or so of the tank. I did just do a quick test, and the Nitrate was about 20ppm according to the test strip. I will be doing a full test on...

    White Sediment in tank after cycle

    There is a white sediment floating around in my tank. I am lost as to what it is, and my fish are acting fine. Looks like salt floating around, but I have no salt in it. 100+ gallon tank, did a 25% cycle and cleaned half the gravel. There is an underground filter installed with activated...

    Skin Irritation While Cleaning Tank

    It has been 2 days, and it has cleared up about 50%. I am pretty sure it was an overload of stuff on the top of the tank. It is kind of white and dry like salt? I figured condensation. Anyways, it was a mild irritation and has began to dissappear.

    Haven't decided. Thinking of either some ghost shrimp or algea eaters. Any recommendations?

    Just Starting Out (105 Gallon)

    I had heard to not follow the rule, but it was a decent reference. That is why I was stopping with 16 mollies and 3 silver dollars.
