    Awful algae growth

    Other than Flourish, that's it. I was planning on starting a CO2 system but wanted to deal with this issue first.

    Awful algae growth

    So it's been about a year since I've had my 29 gallon aquarium and I couldn't be happier. Except, there has been a glaring issue I've been having recently. I have unfortunately became victim to black beard algae and have used Excel Flourish to help get rid of it, and it works but only...

    29 Gallon Tank Any ideas on what plants I should add?

    Had this 29 gal tank for about a year now and have rescaped it before but I still feel it's empty. I added some Seachem Black Sand over some old gravel I had before and planted 3 Amazon Swords and several Anubis Dwarfs. Any ideas of plants I should add to the background, mid-ground, and forground?

    29 Gallon Tank New to lighting

    I'm planning on gradually adding some more plants to my planted aquarium. I wish to add some Dwarf Hairgrass, Rotala Rotundifolia, Hygrophilia Polysperm, and Rotala Indica. I'm aware that these plants require moderate to high light and CO2, however I don't quite understand how the lighting...

    Cycling is apparently stuck - Update

    Now that you mention it, the Ammonia does look a bit dark. I'm going to change that it's probably at 4.0ppm. I'm about 3 weeks into the process now to this upcoming Friday. Not that I think it should be done but I just wonder if something is supposed to be happening? It's kinda just been stuck...

    Cycling is apparently stuck - Update

    This is an update from a previous thread I started with this same tank. This time I've finally gotten somewhere with my aquarium tank. After restarting doing a 100% water change and adding pure amonnnia instead of flakes, I've finally gotten more nitrites. The cycle started @ 2.0ppm and then...

    Weird algae growth

    My 29 gal aquarium has been doing great for the few months I have had it. However I seem to noticing a weird growth of algae on my decor. The algae gives a weird stringy appearance and is dark grey in color. Any idea what this may be and how could I control it?

    Cycling is apparently stuck - Update

    Well I'll be. The nitrates from the tap water is also 5.0ppm. This is so weird because I did a 100% water change a while back and a 50% before and there was no nitrates present. This is actually the first time I found any since this a whole month since I've been cycling it. Is it probably the...

    Cycling is apparently stuck - Update

    Okay so apparently the PH of the water is already at 7.6 on a normal scale and 7.4 at a high range scale. Now there's 2ppm of Ammonia, 0ppm of nitrite, and 0ppm of nitrate. Clueless why it's stuck Yikes. The water is over 100F

    Cycling is apparently stuck - Update

    Unfortunately I haven't tested the pH in a while (I just ordered another kit that's gonna arrive tomorrow) but the last time I checked the pH was between 6.0 - 6.5. I haven’t done anything to change the pH however

    Cycling is apparently stuck - Update

    My 10 gal aquarium seems to be stalling at the cycling process. I started the process about a month ago (not exactly sure what date) doing a fish-less cycle. I added fish food and let it decompose into Ammonia and got a decent start of about 1ppm. I kept adding the fish food until the kit read...

    10 Gallon Tank Transfering Bacteria from Established to New?

    Alright. I'm planning on doing a water change for my established aquarium later so I'll transfer over some of the old water into the new tank and I'll try to add the new media into the established tank for at least a day.

    10 Gallon Tank Transfering Bacteria from Established to New?

    Hello again everyone! I am glad to say after a hard start with my aquarium I now have a properly established tank. Recently, I have acquired a new tank and was about to begin a fishless cycling. However, as time went on I began to wonder, would it be possible to somehow transfer some of the...

    Confused new Aquarium Hobbyist

    Okay! Thanks for all the replies in this thread. I feel a little more prepared for doing this now. I'll just have to wait until the cycling is finish (luckily I didn't touch the filter for this exact reason). One final question would be how often should i change the water now so I don't disturb...
