    Suspected Columnaris, Guppies Cannot Close Mouths

    The first step is making sure ammonia and nitrite are 0, some people say " they are fine" but numbers are >0 which means not fine. Other than this and other possible disease I had issues with guppies that were either due to weak genes or my soft water was dropping in PH because of low KH so I...

    [planted Tank] Help With My Algae Boom

    Water changes, pull out by hand / siphon / long tweezers. Snails would help a lot, I like ramshorn snails.

    20 Gallon Long Overstocked?

    Sounds about 50% of what I have in mine, but I have more plants and weekly wc keeps nitrates around 20ppm. I would add 3 more cory and more plants is always good

    Custom Vinyl Backgrounds?

    Should work fine, ideally the proportions and resolution should match the dimensions of your tank or it will get stretched/ distorted during printing but its going behind water anyway.

    Funny What Part Of Fish Keeping Do You Hate Most?

    Once I got past the 3 tank mark I bought test strips, so much quicker. I have soft water so I can keep an eye on things a lot easier. If something looks a little off I'll use the API kit to double check.

    Water Changes With Sand Substrate

    The coarse grain sand is easier to deal with but the really fine stuff is a pain. I just hover slightly above and move the tube around to get the stuff on the top.

    Some Questions On Multies

    Maybe they are all male/female? I have 1 female 3 males in a 10G. The female can freely move around the tank, only the males chase each other a bit. One male and female paired up and have their own group of shells at the front of the tank. I got 1 baby after the first 2 months and now about 2...

    1 gallon milk containers, when cut as pictured its very sturdy when using the handle. Top use: Cleaning sponges!

    Aqua Clear 50 Media

    It came with 2 tubes, I found 1 to be long enough for 13" tank depth on my 20L's. I use the same aquaclear foam to cut intake sponges, cut the size you want and cut a "X" in the top for the tube. I have these on 6 different intakes, never fall off, easy to take off and put back on

    Accidentally Been Dosing Tank With Ammonia With Surfactants

    Contrary to the other responses, 'surfactant' doesn't necessarily mean 'soap' There's many people using similar ammonia and cycle their tank without issue. I even watched a local hobby breeder dump it in one of his tanks as he told me he'd been using it for years without issue. I would...

    Plant Help, Seachem Flourish

    Another +1 for mixing dry. CSM+B in 1 bottle has all the micros and potassium nitrate etc goes in the other bottle

    Plant Help, Seachem Flourish

    They also have the dry ferts which you can mix your self into 2 separate bottles. I think the cost of buying 1 bottle is equal to buying the dry that will make 20+ bottles I have a bunch of tanks so this made more cents.
