    What type of algae is this?

    Thanks! That's what it looks like. Sounds like I fertilized too much and need to dose more excel.

    What type of algae is this?

    My tank was doing great, but now has algae in it. What's odd is it's only in my foreground plants and hairgrass. Everything else looks fine. I had cut back on Excel. Wondering if that did it. It is a dark green, kind of like hair, and easy to remove. Any ideas on how to control it aside from...

    This fish seem to have stabilized. No more flashing. Will still keep an eye on everything. I did find something that is plant safe so I might try it out if I notice anything else. Been doing small water changes every other day. I think that's helping.

    Fish Flashing After Ich Outbreak

    Alright, as of this morning one of the fish is now breathing heavily and kind of swimming with it's head down. Potentially flukes maybe? Is the best bet to set up a hospital tank with general cure? Do a big water change?

    36 Gallon Aquarium Build

    Update! With my move, I changed the tank to a 32 gallon AIO. Will start a new thread. So far so good! The fish seem to like the new view.

    Fish Flashing After Ich Outbreak

    Details are below. I had an ich outbreak from new fish about 2 weeks ago. I raised the temp of the water to 86 degrees for two weeks. Now I am noticing my fish are flashing- quickly hitting against plants, the glass, etc. Do they have flukes? How can I treat without dyeing my water or impacting...

    I may have had an inch outbreak last week, and my ram might be the only ram in the tank, but she decided to lay eggs today

    At least in the forum sticky here, it's recommended to set the temp to 86 for two weeks and do water changes throughout, without using medication. Open to other thoughts though!

    Tuggerlake's Planted Tanks Journal

    Update. After years of avoiding it, I had an ich outbreak. I first noticed one my endlers with white spots all over her. She quickly died. I immediately increased my temperature to 86 degrees and added an air stone. Within a day, I lost five neons and two of the rams. A few days later and...

    So I may have gone a bit overboard. Got golden rams, neons, and some endler's. Water parameters look good and we fully cycled last week with old filter media. I forgot how much I LOVE neons. So pretty in a planted tank. Photos don't do them justice.

    Tank update! What should I fill it with? I'm thinking something orange/gold could look really nice.

    Tuggerlake's Planted Tanks Journal

    I think I'm going to try selling the tank, but will keep the lights. Those were expensive and I'm sure I'll use them again. Plus easier to store. UPDATE Moved yesterday, and of course before opening any boxes I set the tank up. Lol. Finally got the plants in this morning. I'm waiting to fill...

    It was definitely a big deciding factor! Once I finally buy a home somebody my dream is to make an entire fish room. Until then!

    Move update! I am moving on Sunday. Sadly both tanks are coming down and I'm downsizing to a 20 gallon. I purchased a Seaclear 20 gallon high. Will be setting that up Sunday. I'm taking my angels and discus into the LFS tomorrow. I am really sad about that. I loved my pair angels and they've...

    Best place for apistos?

    I will be setting up a new tank and am looking for apistogrammas. However, I seem to be striking out at most online shops. Does anyone have recommendations for where you've purchased in the past?

    Leveling mat under rimmed aquarium

    If I have a rimmed glass aquarium, should I be using a foam leveling mat? Styrofoam? Or should it be placed directly on the stand?

    Changing Out Padding/Mat Under Tank

    I have a SeaClear acrylic aquarium that I'll be moving soon. I want to get a new stand that fits it better. That means I'll need to replace the current padding that is between the tank and the stand. I'm currently using Styrofoam. I've heard that actually you shouldn't use that, but my dad...
