    Finally, A Razorback Musk Turtle!

    I've got Midland painted turtles, but thanks for the mention! And yes, federal law is that the sale of hatchlings with a shell length under 4 inches is illegal unless they are being sold for legitimate educational purposes. It has to do with the spread of salmonella, and baby turtles being more...

    11 Years And 2 Clown Plecos

    Finally found a replacement! I bought three just in case I have trouble finding it again. Thought the comparison was awesome. The other original piece that was in there fell apart last year!

    Differences Between Sunsun 602-b And 603-b?

    With media in it, the water got two feet off the ground and completely stopped. I thought it would have been able to do more as well.

    At What Nitrate Ppm Do You Do Water Changes At?

    My nitrates stay between 0 and 5, so I just do it weekly to refresh the tanks.

    Reptile Aquarium

    What is your budget like? Chameleons are not cheap, you're talking automatic misting systems, live plants, expensive feeders because they need a large variety, specialty lighting that must be replaced every 6 months, specialty vets that cost extra and may require travel to get to. It's not a...

    Driftwood Plants And Yellowing Water

    Same as carbon, it goes into the filter as a cartridge. It keeps working until it turns dark brown (anywhere from weeks to months depending on how much it is absorbing) and then it can be bleached and then soaked in Prime to recharge it, so it can be reused.

    What Should I Do With This Leaky Tank?

    All the tanks I've seen are kept really wet.

    Differences Between Sunsun 602-b And 603-b?

    I really like the idea of having it a little smaller. The two 603s I have are great, but it's a pain to get them clean and running again since they are sitting behind a 7 gallon and a 5.5 gallon. Tight fit, and they come a little above the water line so they fuss a lot when starting up. I don't...

    Reptile Aquarium

    There's nothing wrong with already having a cage and supplies and wanting to use them for something. OP has asked before buying an animal, which is awesome and the way to do it right! The way a person gets into trouble, and an animal ends up in a bad situation, is when someone buys their dream...

    What Should I Do With This Leaky Tank?

    If you water heavily and it has a good leak in it, you'll run into the same problem of a silicon patch not sticking to the old silicon tightly enough. I had a pretty decent flood once from exactly that!

    How To Get Rid Of Salinity?

    Yeah, just keep doing water changes to flush the tank until it comes down. I would also recommend testing your source water. Depending on where you are or if you have a water softener, it may actually have a higher SG than 1.000 naturally.

    Driftwood Plants And Yellowing Water

    If you want it gone immediately, Purigen is your friend. It absorbs all tanins, and with the small amount you're probably looking at it won't need recharged often.

    Differences Between Sunsun 602-b And 603-b?

    Thank you!! The 602 will end up being a much better fit behind the tanks. Wish I had those on the other tanks instead!

    Reptile Aquarium

    What kind of conditions does your house have - the humidity level and average temperature? Screen cages like this are extremely hard to regulate so knowing what you're working with will help to narrow down what may survive and thrive in there. It's not going to be a lot. Both of my reptile...

    Differences Between Sunsun 602-b And 603-b?

    I have the 603 and it had everything with it. The 602 is slightly cheaper and I need a few of these so it would save some cash overall. I'm also waiting for either one to come back in stock with Chewy so if they really are the same I'd be happy grabbing whichever is available first.

    Question What Filter Should I Add, And Upgrade Troubles

    I had a tank cycle from scratch in 5 days, but I have no idea how it happened. The one right next to it that was started at the same time took three weeks. I think it really comes down to luck, sadly. Anything you can use that has bacteria on it to seed the tank will help speed things along...

    Differences Between Sunsun 602-b And 603-b?

    Wondering if anyone knows what the differences between these two filters are? All I could find is one is a tiny bit smaller physically, but not enough to affect the amount of media and it has the same GPH. Seems odd to have two models that are nearly identical!

    New Clown Pleco Question

    Meaty pellets make my two clowns go crazy. They'll dive right in to a mass of other fish in order to get it for themselves! If you can, they'll like a selection of woods and unfortunately like soft woods the best. They don't need much, just little scraps to chow down on.

    Reptile Aquarium

    It's way too small for a full grown chameleon, they get a lot larger than people think and need a very tall vertical tank for climbing with lots of real or fake plants for hiding. They also have very specific humidity and water requirements, along with diet. Super sensitive species to keep, and...

    Turtles For 20 Long?

    Just wanted to support what BReefer97 has said! I've always heard exactly the same. Musks are pretty easy to find as captively bred specimens as well. The problem is often running afoul of the federal law in the UD stating that all hatchling turtles sold must have shell length of 4 inches...
