    20 Gallon Tank Water test results for fishless cycle, what should i

    Does topping off the tank with water count? I’m not sure what’s been causing it but my water level tends to drop a lot (no visible leaks anywhere) and I just add more to the tank (treated as well with dechlorinator of course) each time

    I’ve just dosed my tank with dr Tim’s ammonia and now I’ve got to dose with turbo next but I’m a little confused! I’ve got a 1 oz bottle and read the entire thing will help cycle a 40 gallon so should I dose half the bottle I have since I have a 20 gallon? Here’s my ammonia level

    20 Gallon Tank Is my tank salvageable?

    Ok! I’m gonna add my prefilter and a piece of the sponge I got but for the inside of the filter itself I have a hob type right… but I’m currently using the filter my aqueon came with and it has growth on it already. Should I just had a sponge behind it or the bio max I purchased?

    20 Gallon Tank Is my tank salvageable?

    That makes sense… would I be okay to go ahead and set up my tank with the supplies I’ve ordered? Such as upgrading my filter.

    My turbo start just came in the mail but bad news it may have been in there for about 3 days :[ I’ve been too busy to check the mail and it was pretty hot in there when I opened the package and I read somewhere you’re supposed to keep this bottled bacteria refrigerated.

    20 Gallon Tank Starting my tank all over again, need some advice!

    Yes I do have a lid on the tank and no it’s not a humid room. I will say however, this tank is set up in my siblings room since it’s her tank and she likes to have her room cold with the ceiling fan on. She rarely turns it off. I’m not sure if that affects anything though. Also no! No leaking...

    Oooooooo would putting only 2 of those black sponges and some filter media in the middle like the one I listed above (or lava rocks I’m considering also) be a good option as well?

    20 Gallon Tank Dirty filter!

    Still going thru my fishless cycle and my filter has already clogged up with brown looking muck on the cartridge and sponge it came with. I was wondering if I could just rinse those two in some water (in a separate bowl of course)) from my aquarium and put it back in place? Would that take away...

    20 Gallon Tank Need advice for sponge filter replacement

    Hello! I currently have a quietflo 20 gall filter and am considering switching to making my own sponge filter instead of having to change out these flimsy cartridges every month. Thinking of purchasing these 3 items for the new perma filter. What do you think? Good set up or should I go for...
