    Help Oil On Water Surface?

    Its most likely either soap from your hands or oil from fish food. Protein would look like foam on top.

    Male Or Female?

    I saw this at the store and I thought, wow this is a super confusing looking fish. I know the answer, but I want to see if it trips people up. So male or female?

    Help Gbr Artificial Hatching!

    10 gallons are cheaper than 5 gallons, and the dollar per gallon sale is happening at Petco. You can keep your fry in a 10 gallon for 3 months easy. Plenty of water changes. My guide has the steps and picture of what it should look like hatching them. In my opinion, there’s no good use for...

    If the proof existed, who wouldn’t want to show it? That’s what I feel like.

    I’ve Been Bad

    So, let me preface this with saying I’m a moderator in a large Facebook group, which I will not name on this forum. Lately I’ve been “arguing”, but it’s more of me calling people out for spreading misinformation. I don’t know anywhere close to everything, and no matter how modest I try to be, I...

    Question Can You Cycle Tank Without Substrate/decor?

    Make sure when you clean the sponge filter in the new aquarium that it has conditioner, is relatively close in temperature, and that you put fish or a source of ammonia in right after. If you don’t add fish or ammonia, you wasted it. I’ve instantly cycled a 10 gallon by this method, granted it...

    More Nitrogen Cycle Tips

    When the pH is low enough to make nitrification stop completely, you have all ammonium, which is not toxic. Since nitrification stops, there will be no toxic nitrites or nitrates being produced either. I often think about this, it’s actually kind of weird.

    More Nitrogen Cycle Tips

    One thing I see is that you said ammonia becomes less toxic as the pH gets higher, it’s actually the opposite. As it goes above 7 and beyond, it becomes more and more toxic. Also, a simple water change should keep your pH from getting too low.

    Peat Moss To Lower Ph

    Look at what my Wisteria looked like at my old place in a different city, didn’t use any fertilizer or root tabs, and I had a fluorescent light. The pH was 7.5 ish( the one with a robust plant) . Now look at it WITH ferts, better light, and root tabs, but at 8.2 pH

    Nicely said. It’s true. That’s why my planted tanks look like that of a childs.

    Peat Moss To Lower Ph

    I’ve been struggling with Wisteria and other stem plants. I tested it by using RO/tap to get my pH lower and they did way way way better. But I just don’t have time for that. But yeah, most of the plants mentioned do fine, specifically val because they like harder water.

    Peat Moss To Lower Ph

    Yes exactly my point, they do fine, especially vals. Oh and my java ferns

    Peat Moss To Lower Ph

    My water is 8.2 pH and I struggle keeping plants other than Val, Hornwort, and swords. Your best bet would be using RO/tap to keep it consistent.
