    Oily Sheen on Water Surface

    I would blame the food first really, I have a 40gal that does this all the time and its just some proteins coming out of the foods. I dont have an airstone in the tank and it is one of the only tanks in my house that doesnt have some strong surface movement.

    water from cycled tank into uncycled tank= cycled tank?

    The bacteria are in the filter and gravel for the most part and will be on decor to a point. To say he is 100% wrong isnt totally accurate, there will be some BB floating around in the water but not enough to make a difference in a new tank, matter of factly it will most likely die in the cycle...

    Nls pellets

    I usually watch when I feed, I have plastic teaspoons that I leave in my jars (I have bought enough of the tall ones to do that now) and watch the fish eat, if they eat what I put in quickly then I add some more and watch again.

    The Morning Coffee

    See you just need to move the coffee pot to your desk. I moved one in one of my offices and it actually really helped me with the staff as I got to talk to them more as the manager, it also cut back on their 20min coffee breaks lol. I also agree that starsux stuff is just blech, Im more of a...

    Will these so-called ecological tank work?

    I think its a cool idea, and if your looking for a tank at your desk I think you could do some nice shrimp in it. Any shrimp (most likely only one type) would work other than say amano and bamboo off the top of my head. I have seen Bettas successfully housed in small containers, and its...

    Am I Insane?

    I like the barrel jar as well, my only question on them is what do you do with the cord? It kinda looks like the one at target has the cord in the lower portion, sealing that would be a pain, if im right. If you do the other one does the cord go into the jar at all or how is that handled?

    Lost my job, but all is well.

    Sorry to hear about the loss, but sometimes a door has to close on us to show us a better one. Good luck!

    A Great Schooling Fish with Angels?

    Lemon tetras would be good in that category. Could also do Gold Barbs.

    All new fish are dying in the QT within 24 hours

    Crazy thought, and I might have missed it, but what about using tank water in a diff setup? BTW is there any filtration at your house at all? water softeners or anything like that? Your tap pH seems a bit low to me is all.

    All new fish are dying in the QT within 24 hours

    the other way to do it is to remove the heater and leave the rest in the tank. If it was the heater youll know, if not you should get the same results. Thou I have seen failed heaters in tanks that were electrically charging the water and the fish were still ok. I would be leaning towards the...

    Automatic feeders

    I tend to leave mine for about a week at a time due to work travels, and they do just fine. they dont treat the food any different when its after a vacatoin of just the normal daily feeding. The longest was 9 days so far and I didnt lose a single fish. I have played with a few feeders over the...

    Nutrient Obsorbing Aquarium Plants

    I have my wisteria planted in some tanks, but it does seem to grow a bit faster floating. You can control it by just plain culling of the plants. I know quite a few on there that do that with duckweed on a REGULAR basis lol. I know others that grind it up into home made fish food, or others...

    Nutrient Obsorbing Aquarium Plants

    most of your surface floating plants do a great job at taking up nutrients, duckweed, salvinia, frog bit. I personally like my wisteria and frog bit, but my blue eyed rainbows love the tank covered in salvinia.

    unknown pleco

    I agree, looks like a common to me, he could be older and very stunted too.

    Addicted to CO2?

    Corries are just crazy to begin with so you have to look at your base line for that line of thought.

    Cruelty to fish... call the ASPCA, seriously.

    oh wow....people will sell anything! I wouldnt let that near my tank, matter of fact one of my fish was swiming by in the tank behind me and just freaked out lol.

    Live plants

    I agree, most of your ferns and anubias are low light plants that do great. I have seen swords do ok in low light thou they do prefer med light usually. Also consider if your tank is near a window you can use the sun as additional light. You can also always add desk lamps or the like for added...
