    What is the average people spend on a tank?

    This is such a variable. I just recommend buying what you want off the bat. I learned of usually go with something budget friendly. Not even bad quality but it wasn't what I really wanted, and I'd end up buying the original item I really wanted. So when I setup a tank now I just purchase the...

    My builds

    They're prefilters on aquaclear 110s but i changed the sponge that came with it to a coarser sponge so it never clogs and also has beneficial bacteria. I think i last gave it a squeeze 3 months ago. Before that weekly maintenance was necessary.

    Should I switch to the Aquaclear30 hob

    I'm running 2 aquaclears on my discus tank. A fluval 207 canister on my bow front. And 2 oase internal filters on a 20 long and 10g. Aquaclear might not be the fanciest but it's my favorite. The oase internal filters coming in 2nd. The simplicity of the aquaclear line is what always keeps me...

    Discus In My 125.

    Beautiful tanks and fish room! I got one in my tank that's the same brown it's never colored up since after the first days i brought it home just accepted it as the ugly duckling. It eats and behaves fine it just doesn't get color. I thought because it was the weakest one in the pecking order.

    20 gallon shrimp build

    Added some lamb chop rasbora to my shrimp tank. Really wanted chili rasbora but they seem to be extremely hard to get locally. Aquaflora decorations started to sprout.

    Powerheads vs air stones

    Depends on how much water movement you want to have some fish need very slow flow, i would use an air stone for that because you can regulate the ammount of air with a valve.

    Thanks Mac, I've had it a month, i wasn't looking to buy a fish but I've always wanted one of these so kind of threw it into an aquarium I use to keep my cycled stuff in. I'll be trying to make a better Aquarium for it. As i move some stuff around.
