    Lethargic Betta And Heavy Breathing

    This morning he was back to his active self! Not sure if it was constipation or swimmers bladder or if it was ammonia poisoning and the water change and prime double dose helped. I retested the ammonia and it's reading .5 now which makes sense since it was 1 before the 50% change. I'll probably...

    Lethargic Betta And Heavy Breathing

    Thank you. I haven't fed him since Saturday so hopefully if that is the issue he will start feeling better tomorrow. I'll be sure to soak the pellets first once I start feeding him again. I just did a 50% water change with vacuum and used RO water so hopefully that will help the levels of...

    Fluval Fx6 And Medications For Ich

    Thanks everyone. I ended up using the meds and it seems like it has treated it. I did put carbon back in just to get rid of any traces of the meds but will get some lava rock. I really do love the fx6 and all the media it can hold.

    Fluval Fx6 And Medications For Ich

    Perfect thank you. Sounds like a good idea to get rid of it. Should I put something in its place such as a polishing pad?

    Fluval Fx6 And Medications For Ich

    I have a fluval fx6 (with all the stock media that came with it). I need to treat the tank for ich and it says to remove carbon from the filter. Does the fx6 come with carbon or anything I need to remove? All I remember was the foam pads and bio media. Just wasn't sure if there is something...

    High Nitrates? Should I Remove Seed Material?

    Thanks everyone. I'll cut back on the feeding and do a larger 50% water change and see how it goes from there. The tap water isn't showing any nitrates so the tank is probably producing them at the same rate as my water changes because the levels seem to go no where. Hopefully I can get it down...

    High Nitrates? Should I Remove Seed Material?

    I have a 40 gallon breeder. Started the tank early-mid Feb (fishless cycle). It was taking a long time to cycle (was adding pure ammonia) but then I added some seed material from someone's filter and that really jump started the cycle. By early April the tank was cycled. I did a big water change...

    Question 2 Ac 110 Or 1 Canister And 2 Heaters For 75 Gallon Tank?

    Thanks everyone! I think i'm sold on getting a canister. Seems like it will be worth the investment in the long run and much more efficient for a 75g. If i can't find an older Aqueon Pro the Finnex looks like a good choice as well for a heater.

    Question 2 Ac 110 Or 1 Canister And 2 Heaters For 75 Gallon Tank?

    Thanks! I'll see if I can hunt down an older model Aqueon Pro heater. I happened to be browsing Facebook Marketplace for an FX4 and found an FX6 (< 6 months old) for $150. Seems like way overkill for a 75 gallon though and I worry the flow would be too much?

    Question 2 Ac 110 Or 1 Canister And 2 Heaters For 75 Gallon Tank?

    That looks great islandvic. I do like the idea of having a canister + a HOB as a backup so eventually I'll go that route unless I can find a deal on a canister. One of the reasons I wanted 2 heaters in case one failed. Biggest fear is overheating though so I might get a temperature controller...

    Question 2 Ac 110 Or 1 Canister And 2 Heaters For 75 Gallon Tank?

    It will be a basic community tank most likely. I don't plan on overstocking it or having a ton in there (though who knows what happens in the future). I'll also have some live plants. Room temperature is around 68-72 in the winter though in the summer it gets warmer. Target temp will probably...

    Question 2 Ac 110 Or 1 Canister And 2 Heaters For 75 Gallon Tank?

    I just got a 75 gallon tank and will begin getting supplies soon. I wasn't sure which would be better 2 Aqua Clear 110 HOBs (have a AC 70 on my 40 gallon) or 1 canister. It seems like the 2 HOBs would be around the same price as a Fluval 406 canister but the total flow rate on AC would probably...
