    Cloudy Water But Safe Main Water Parameters

    If your gonna change all the water, make sure you keep all the filter media. So you can use it again. Meaning don't touch your filter. Keep it wet and restart it asap. Good luck.

    How can I properly feed my fish

    I do not stop the filters at feeding. I have two filters and adjust the smallest as far down as it will go. I put food in that front corner. I only feed once per day in the morning. I give brine shrimp occasionally. TetraMin makes a food called Tropical Crisps. They float until the fish...

    Cloudy Water But Safe Main Water Parameters

    I always lean on a little to big as far as filters go. I run a AC 50 and 70 in my 40 gallon. I do 50% water changes weekly. My water is always crystal clear. If I were you, and your tank is clean like you said, I would remove and replace as much water as possible. I would remove from the tank...

    Which Aquarium Stand for 29 Gallon

    Buy the stand that fits your tank. When I got my 40 breeder I bought the stand for that tank. Perfect fit. They make stands for all tank sizes. Mine is real nice with leveling feet. Leveling feet are my first requirement on future tank stands. Makes set up easy. Also when using the correct...

    Which Aquarium Stand for 29 Gallon

    At minimum using the HD stand, I would secure it to the wall. I would not trust it personally. I have a rack like the HD one and would never consider using it. Its a commercial rack/stand used in restaurant kitchen and storage. They are designed to hold gallon cans and things like that. They...

    Which Aquarium Stand for 29 Gallon

    I saw that and I saw the stand. This rack type shelving is not designed for the use you intend. Tank stands expensive? This is one purchase you better get right the first time. Look at "Imagitarium" tank stands and get one for your tank. A stand designed for your tank. There lots of expenses...

    How easy is it to keep live foods for fish?

    I don't thaw the brine shrimp cubes. I drop a frozen cube in there and its gone in less than a minute.

    How easy is it to keep live foods for fish?

    In the old days you could go into any pet store and get live brine shrimp. I do not see that any longer. People have moved to frozen foods. I use frozen blood worms and brine shrimp. I drop the whole cube into the water and its gone in less than one minute. However. You can easily have your...

    Can I add fish as soon as I start using Seachem Stability?

    Seachem's instructions say to add 2 cap fulls of Stability on the first day. Then 1 cap full for 6-7 days thereafter. The instructions also say that fish can be introduced immediately after starting the addition of Stability. So, do you trust Seachem? Thats the question you must ask yourself.

    Any factors causing heat to rise in aquarium?

    I don't really need a heater in the summer. Also my tap water is perfect as far as temperature. I would unplug the heater and use it when it gets cold outside. For me to have my heater on this time of year does not make much sense. I pull it out, clean it and store for cooler weather.

    How do we prevent Hard water stain?

    Agree. I clean my glass hood every time I do a water change. I just wipe it off on both sides. Then when the area near the bubbler stone gets real hard to remove I also use a razor blade. Wiping it down regularly is the key. I always keep my tank topped off. So bubbles do hit the glass.

    Clearly its not enough to give a answer. At least I will not give an answer with such little information.

    Will this fish tank stand hold

    Then why pictures of the filter. I looked at every picture and not one is a picture of the stand. Only the inside where the filter is.

    Need ideas!

    Thanks. I am very critical, especially on myself. I would imagine I move some stuff around. Take some out. Maybe get them off center? I don't know. I spent about an hour setting this up.
