    44g South East Asian Build

    1 Month Update: my tank so far is doing well, I never had an diatom or green algae outbreak (knock on wood) and my plants are steadily growing. My Nymphaea Stella took off and already has three lily pads! I'll have to look into propagating her. So far I have 14 Harlequin Rasboras and 2 Siamese...

    44g South East Asian Build

    Ohh interesting! I thought Danios were found in South East Asian fish, at least that is what I've come across in my research. Though I agree that they have the lowest water temp of my fish, particularly compared to the Pearls, so it's valid to assume I wouldn't see a Danio and a Pearl too often...

    44g South East Asian Build

    Hello! I’m building a low tech South East Asia ecosystem in my new UNS 90p 44g tank. I’ve chosen all native plants, driftwood, fish, and substrate to replicate a slow moving stream. Currently my tank is going through a fish-less plant-less water cycle with Brightwell Aquatics bacteria additives...

From what I've read, ich has multiple stages and it's not until the final stage that the fish start showing signs. The white spots are the fish's own immune system trying to fight off the ich...

One black neon survived the mass die-off (3 weeks ago now) and he’s been doing great, along with all my...

    Water Levels Good But Fish Still Dying? Swim Bladder Or Parasite?

    Hm yeah I've been doing more research into RO and I think I will start adding 50% RO 50% tap water (with conditioning) during the water changes. Hopefully this brings down the nitrates, ph, and water hardness at a fairly stable rate. Thanks for your input!

    Water Levels Good But Fish Still Dying? Swim Bladder Or Parasite?

    Thank you for replying so quickly! They won't eat the day they show signs of sickness, but eat up till then just fine. The red spot was not there before the fish died. I'm not sure about petsmart, but the aquarium store I now go to used RO for their tanks. Ive considered RO but I'm not sure...

    Which Finnex ??

    Hi, I just purchased a finnex planted 24/7 (love it) and read on my instructions that you can manually set certain hours during the cycle to be full 'lights off'
