    Bolivian Ram Sexing

    Just wanted to give an update. I’ve been medicating their food with Metroplex for the last 6 days. They eat a good amount every feeding but I’m not seeing any changes to their weight. Any ideas?

    White Particles in water - 75 gallon tank with a Fluval FX4

    I added the filter floss to get rid of the particles so I don’t think that’s what’s causing it.

    White Particles in water - 75 gallon tank with a Fluval FX4

    Alright, I appreciate the help. I think a spray bar will be what I try next.

    White Particles in water - 75 gallon tank with a Fluval FX4

    15-20% every 3 days. It’s a 75 gallon if that makes a difference. I’ve tried my best to aim the output away from the sand. Do you think a spray bar might fix it?

    White Particles in water - 75 gallon tank with a Fluval FX4

    They just go with the current, I’m like 99% sure they aren’t alive. I’ve had pods before in saltwater tanks and these look different.

    White Particles in water - 75 gallon tank with a Fluval FX4

    I turned both filters off just to make sure they weren’t bubbles and they still float around in there water. It’s just odd because my water is otherwise very clean

    White Particles in water - 75 gallon tank with a Fluval FX4

    Hey all, I know there are plenty of posts on here about white particles in the water, but I’m really not sure what else I can do. I have a 75 gallon tank with a Fluval FX4 and a Marineland 350 Biowheel, so I doubt filtration is an issue. I also have filter floss (polyfil) in both which I know...

    Do you think API General Cure would work just as well? The only meds I have on-hand are General Cure and Metroplex.

    Bolivian Ram Sexing

    So just an update, they both eat at feeding but I’ve noticed they’re definitely more passive feeders. Neither one has gotten any fatter as far as I can tell. They seem to be the same as they were when I got them. Is that a good indication to start medicating?

    Bolivian Ram Sexing

    When I feed I tend to lure the Severum and angels to one area as they are absolute pigs, then feed in another area for the Acaras and the Rams. I have seen them eat pretty much every feeding except the first couple after I took them home, though.

    Bolivian Ram Sexing

    They’re in a 75 gallon with an Acara, Severum, a few angels, some cories, and some tetras. All pretty young. Got them on Saturday, Would you recommend I treat the food with meds? They’re currently eating so now is probably a good time to do it.

    Bolivian Ram Sexing

    Hey all, just wanted to see if anyone could sex these Rams. Based on the vents I think I have a male and a female but I’m starting to think I may have both males. Was hoping someone better at this than me could chime in.

    Running a HOB rated for a smaller tank

    Thanks for the idea, I just ordered Aquaclear 110 Foam Inserts that I'll hopefully be able to cut to slide over the filter intake. I think if the prefilter sponge doesn't work out I'm gonna make a DIY spray bar. It seems any direction I adjust the outflow still finds a way to kick up the poop...

    Running a HOB rated for a smaller tank

    Well I originally got the setup for a Fahaka puffer so I knew I’d need to overkill filtration but decided against it because I didn’t want to stunt it’s growth. would you suggest trying to direct the return flow away from the substrate? It’s definitely kicking some up but I’d expect the...

    Running a HOB rated for a smaller tank

    I have a pretty heavily stocked 75 gallon (about half of which will be moving once I get another 75) and the water quality has taken a hit despite the tank being decently overfiltered using a Fluval FX4. I do 10-15% water changes twice a week but still notice particles floating around in the...

    Stocking Fluval Flex 15G

    Any ideas of what I could put in with the puffers then? I'd be happy with just them in the tank but I'm just wondering if there's some sort of bottom-dweller or detritus eater that could work.

    Stocking Fluval Flex 15G

    I was thinking about that and was going to supplement with cucumber but I didn't think of the fact they may not even eat the cucumber. Would maybe 8-10 dwarf corys be better?
