    Heater for Outside Tank

    Ok so my 80 gallon tank is going to be outside in the yard under a patio. Normally I know you don't need heaters for goldfish tanks but since this tank is outside and temperatures can drop down to as much as 45 degrees in the winter time, I think I need a heater. All my other tanks run Aqueon...

    Need some info about goldfish..

    So as some of you know, I recently setup a 80 gallon tank that started cycling with Stability this morning. The wife won't allow anymore tanks inside the house so this one will be outside in the yard under a patio. Anyway, let's get down to the stocking. First off, I'm running a FX6, and for...

    Amano shrimps or Nerites

    I know both shrimp and snails have a very low bioload but... How many of each could I safely stock in a 29 gallon without going over the bioload? Just inverts, no fish.

    TSS and Stability together?

    Is it my understanding that these two products contain different strains of beneficial bacteria that effectively do the same thing (metabolize ammonia and nitrite)? So has anyone tried using these two products together and seen the results? Or would it just be wasteful and redundant?

    Used Tank for Sale

    So this guy is selling a "Brand new 60 gallon tank"... but if you look at the photo in the ad, the picture was from 2010... so does he think people are dumb or can't read? The kind of scams people will pull to sell stuff... simply amazing..

    New Life Spectrum Cichlasoma

    Would prefer not to feed HikarI Massivore Delite to my flowerhorn as they usually contain a lot of fillers in their foods.So I happened upon this formula while looking up what other foods are out there for monster cichlids. Tried to look around for a guaranteed analysis and ingredient listing...

    Is it cruel? Feeder Fish

    Just wondering if using feeder guppies and feeder goldfish and "excess" livebearers to feed your bigger fish as live food, is considered a cruel practice? You're basically killing lives. (Hope I didn't open up a can of worms lol)

    29 Gallon Predator tank possible?

    Ok so over the weekend, I sold off six of the Pelvicachromis Taeniatus that I had been keeping. Let's just say I didn't get as much as I wanted but I did make some money. Anyway, I wanted some out-of-the box ideas since it's empty right now. Pending on whether I get some good ideas, I may or...

    New pleco

    Ok so I got an albino BN from my friend who was quitting the hobby a few days ago. They do a good job sucking algae off the walls! The SAEs do also but they don't really have sucker mouths. So now I'm finally joining the pleco bandwagon... So much that I got a very tiny BN pleco from PetSmart...

    Finnex Ray 2 vs AquaRay GroBeam 600

    It's my understanding that both of these light fixtures are in the medium to high light range. Just curious if anybody has the Ray 2 and how is working for them? I know Dadio has the GroBeam and he swears by it. Just wanted more opinions. The Ray 2 just seems a lot more accessible as I can just...
