    hmm i’ll have to think about it. they’re probably the only tetra i like but idk if i’d want them to not have optimal conditions. my tank is just about 1 meter so it is the minimum he finds acceptable

I was thinking an electric/german blue ram, some rummy nose tetras, false juli corys, and maybe a starlight bristle nose pleco. i know the corys and tetras need to be in groups but are...

    Nitrates with no nitrites?

    good point. let me test the tap again right now for nitrates to see the color comparison the color looks preeeetty close so either my tap does have a bit of nitrates or the color for 0 nitrates is a bit orange

    Nitrates with no nitrites?

    hello, I’m doing a fishless cycle for a 10 gallon that will hopefully have caridina shrimp in it soon. It's been running for a little over a week with a seeded sponge filter, wood, plants, and 1.5 indian almond leaves from my other two 10 gallons. I've been adding fish food for an ammonia source...

    How to dose Alkaline Buffer to gradually raise ph

    After reading up on caridinas, I’m super interested in them. I wish I had known about this stuff before getting neos but I still love them too lol As of now, I’m planning on getting the parameters a bit higher for my neo/betta tank. I’m going to go super slow since none of the inhabitants seem...

    How to dose Alkaline Buffer to gradually raise ph

    I'll definitely look into blackwater. It'd have to be a new tank set up though obviously since I already have this one running.

    How to dose Alkaline Buffer to gradually raise ph

    out of the tap the GH is about 25 ppm, KH is about 20 ppm, and pH is 6.4 I bought my tank used so i’m not sure of the substrate. it’s black sand I appreciate all your help so far. I thought I had a good grasp on what I needed to know but there's so much I didn't know that I didn't know

    How to dose Alkaline Buffer to gradually raise ph

    richiep do you have any tips for this? The shrimp were in 8.2 pH water before I got them and went to 6.4 pH. I found 3 new sheds in the tank yesterday and 2 more this morning. I've had them for one week. They seem to be doing fine so far. I'm I better off leaving the pH alone?

    How to dose Alkaline Buffer to gradually raise ph

    My tap water is pretty acidic and comes out of my tap at about 6.5. I bought Seachem alkaline buffer in hopes to raise it to a more suitable level for neocaridina shrimp and a betta fish. Everything I've seen says to raise the pH slowly but the only instructions on the bottle say to add 1 tsp...
