    Suggestions On Sterilizer Install

    Thanks Islandvic the interest. I installed it inline on the 2075 output, I also have a 2078 and a Tidal 110 on the 125g. I leave the UV on 24/7 but probably don't need to. The water is clear and don't find the need to clean even the front glass. I did buy a new bulb. I did need to use some...

    It's Not Mts Yet, Right?

    I didn't realize that there was a member of the 4' club until I bought the 125g and someone welcomed me to the 6' club...to which I answered that I've been 6' 3" since high school.

    Mts Is No Joke!!

    I have had MTS for years. It went into submission when life's circumstances demanded more of my time. But I am now retired and my MTS has returned. My case is fairly mild when compared with others. Currently I have 2x 5g, a10g, a 46g, a 75g, and my newest a 125g. All are FW, I stick with what I...

    If You Need A Laugh...

    After forgetting to plug heaters in, just like the rest of us, I plug everything into a power strip. Now all I have to remember is to remember to turn it back on. Oh ya here's a tip...tape a ridged cover over the switch so the cat doesn't step on in and turn it off. I have a cat who did this on...

    If You Need A Laugh...

    A couple months back when setting up the 125g Tanganyikan I was worried about the large stones contacting the bottom glass. So watching YouTubes and weighing the + & - of egg crate, I took notes. I put the crate in and added enough sand to fill in the squares and then started to add water. This...

    Dang Aquarium Braces

    I really like your tank. Nice retro stand. Usually the wrought iron is so plain.[/GALLERY] I would not remove the supports unless you are willing to risk the possible consequences. Over the years most of my tanks have had some kind of cross support, some glass some plastic. The only one that I...

    High Nitrates

    I have noticed that the bag that contains the Nitrazorb deteriates after time, maybe I am too rough when I rinse it. I put their bag inside of a Seachem zipper bag and it seems to do well.

    Lps Changes How They Keep Betta Fish - Yay!!

    Here in KC, Mo. I don't see live fish for sale in my Walmart either. It has become company policy that the stores no longer are required carry them if they don't wish to. It is up to the individual store managers. At least that is what I read. :;bananawater

    Cycle Complete

    I believe what Carmen79 was getting at was that you don't need to (and shouldn't) toss everything out when cleaning your filter...be it a canister, HOB or what ever else. Rinse your Biomedia and sponges in tank water until the water is fairly clear. Keep using sponges until they are clogged or...

    Cycle Complete

    Welcome to water world. I really like your scape. Try putting some kind of background on the back glass. You will love the effect of even simply black. Concerning your filter, which by now holds the majority of your bio, I have never been fond of the "replacement cartridges" in HOB's. Except...

    Nitrates Are Too High

    I have been spending a lot of time researching and watching YouTube. One in particular closed the valve for me. . The old processor that I have as a brain needs an upgrade. My wonderment turned to excitement...which turned to doubt...then to fear...and finally to realization. This is best left...

    Nitrates Are Too High

    I have a bunch of Purigen but I don't use it any more. I have planted tanks and I also thought that it might be starving my Biohome. Also once I regenerated it and forgot to condition it with my African buffer and it caused my PH to drop dramatically. It was lucky that I caught it quick. After...

    Nitrates Are Too High

    20ppm NO3 is usually a good number for most freshwater, including shrimp. My tap is about 5-7ppm NO3. I have a holding water tank where I aerate and age my water. I also use a power head with a bag of Nitra-zorb in a filter basket. I had to fill the bottom of the basket with foam so that the bag...

    Nikm128 Interview

    Yes, I would grow them out in separate tanks &eventually sell them to the LFS. I still have the 40g breeder in storage with the Oceanics. This was long before digital. I might have something on a VCR tape somewhere. I have so much media from over the years. I am the family archivist. Everything...

    I did not know that. You have a beautiful Country. I visited and camped in several provinces when I was a kid with my parents. Expo '67 was one of the trips.
