    What Type Of Thermometer Is Better? Poll

    Use whatever works for you. The floaters use alcohol with red dye. The companies that sell the digital type use a disclaimer that says it's within N degrees + or -, so you know they're not accurate. Get a good digital thermometer for people or an expensive meat thermometer and compare that...

    Poll , How Do You Do Refill Tank After A Water Change

    I'm sure we all have our own methods and preferences. I change 25% of water in my tanks every week. I use the syphoned out water to water my indoor and outdoor plants - great plant nutrients. I use a digital meat thermometer to measure the tank water so that I know the tank temp and added water...

    What Type/species Of Angelfish Do You Have?

    Hey Biz - I do care! I love to learn, it's one of life's greatest pleasures. Can you recommend a good detailed book on Angelfish or, like me, do you follow link after link after link until you wind up down some rabbit hole that has no more rabbits? Popeye

    What Type/species Of Angelfish Do You Have?

    Gorgeous. Well, that supplier's mis-identification was certainly to your advantage. Maybe I should start haunting my LFSs more. I broke my habit of doing the rounds weekly and now i'm going back to that if there's vars like this to be found!. Thanks for sharing.

    Hey Biz- Got any pics of the Phil. Blue Leopards. I'd love to see them. Where'd you get them from? I'm looking for trustworthy sources for some unique vars. Popeye (I yam what I yam and that's all what I yam!)

    Question Tank Brand Preference?

    I agree with the advice from Fashooga. If you're buying a smaller tank, say 20G and under, Fashooga's right on. If going bigger or ordering over the web it may not be so easy. I have purchased a few tanks from a reputable online supplier and I just flat out asked them what do they recommend that...

    20 Gallon Tank What Are Good Fish Options To Add?

    I don't know how long you've had the rams, but I'd watch out some (not all) can be territorial. For safety sake when you add any fish to your 20G move some of the deco around so the rams don't get protective and aggressive with the newbies. You could also try a half dozen rummy-nose tets -...

    Question What Type Of Different Species Tetras Will School Together?

    You might take a look at the Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish (melanotaenia praecox) and some other smaller rainbowfish like Gertrude's or Blue-eye forktail. The latter are smaller and both will school/shoal. Try to keep them in groups and have females out-number males. Really gorgeous color, great...

    I bought 9 Rummy Nose for my 50G and 9 long fin Candy Cane Tets about a year ago. The tank they are in is at 80F. They don't school together but never had any fights, fin nips, etc. Very peaceful and they are great fun to watch. Last week I caught them sitting around the campfire singing **** Ba...

    How Do I Improve The Efficiency Of The Marineland Emperor 400 Hob

    I use the Marineland Emperor 400 on my 46G bowfront display tank and two more on my 60G. There are two pre-loaded (carbon) filter pads and two plastic "fill with whatever" trays in each filter. I alternate (right side/left side) changing the pads and trays every month. I always cut open the very...

    Thanks, Sabrina. Right now, since I am in the process of starting a 90G Angelfish species tank, I have pared down to only a couple of active tanks. I am down to multiple species of Pleco, Rainbow, Goby, Rummynose, Angels, Corys, Loaches, Rams. I'm heavily loaded with clean-up crew members while...
