    Very different results from gravel cleanings

    Greetings! Without any major changes over the last couple of months, all of a sudden I'm not finding near as much dark detritus when we vacuum. What I see mostly now are tiny bits of white material and thin clouds of detritus. This is a good thing, I think! We vacuum a third of the tank (72in...

    Spray bar setup

    I've never seen any indication of the precise way a spray bar SHOULD be setup. That being true, whenever I've configured with surface agitation in mind (O2 injection). This, for me, meant mounting at the water line pointed slightly downward. Since I have configurable kit that allows for tons...

    Current USA Serene SUN LE Pro. Now what?

    The family CFO told me that it was fine to go ahead and buy the fixture I thought was best, because I hadn't whined about before. She was nicer than this, but I'm sure you get the point. So I popped for what I thought looked good, in terms of features and such. The problem is that after a month...

    I'm interested in what you guys think of this type of bio filtration.

    Why are all the treads closed?

    I recently rescued a female black pacu from a terribly maintained tank where I work. During the nearly 6-months I watched her suffer I learned a great deal about the breed. I'd very much like to share my adventure, and learn about the experiences of others with this magnificent animal. My...
