    Name that corydoras!

    Even though he's so much darker than the other two? Do you think they are false julii as well? They both look just like the lighter one in the pics.

    Name that corydoras!

    I bought 3 corys from my LFS about 2 months ago. They were housed in a tank with a bunch of peppered, albino and this type of corydoras. I thought they were all false julii corys until over the last few weeks I've noticed one is significantly darker than the other two. His face also seems...

    Help Apisto Hongsloi in trouble

    Well unfortunately he died in the night I'm very disappointed but the seller is being very nice and has offered to replace him for me. Definitely going to wait til after the 20 is resealed before I do that though. Unfortunately I have very hard water and high pH but I'm counteracting it by...

    Help Apisto Hongsloi in trouble

    You ninja'd me as I was editing my post lol. So far there are no visual symptoms. I will definitely try a pea tomorrow as I'm currently out of them.

    Help Apisto Hongsloi in trouble

    I just received two juvenile apistogramma hongsloi form II yesterday and one appears to be doing very poorly. They are currently too young to sex but I will refer to the struggling one as "he" and the healthy one as "she" to make it easier to differentiate between them. He seemed kind of...

    Should This Worry Me? silicone is looking pretty worn

    I was afraid of that. Can I get away with just redoing the side seams and leaving the bottom ones alone? They seem to be in much better shape than the side seams. Or should I just do it all at once and be done with it?

    Removing hard water stains

    The lemon juice worked...until it dried And I wiped the outside with Windex'd paper towels. The funk is definitely on the inside

    Removing hard water stains

    I think 5'2" qualifies as really short So now that it's all rinsed and dried, I can see the whole tank has a light film to it with a strip of crustier film along the water line of both the longer sides.i found a thread earlier by someone named Gunner who used Turtle Wax Heavy Duty Rubbing...

    Should This Worry Me? silicone is looking pretty worn

    I recently had to tear down my 20 gallon standard and have been deep cleaning it to remove all the hard water stains. In the process I noticed that the silicone is looking pretty worn and some of the edges lift up pretty easily but not all the way to the seam. I bought the tank used so I have no...

    Removing hard water stains

    And this is why I'm kinda glad I don't have a bigger tank. Lifting that thing out of the tub was rough! And I still have a film on the tank. Ugh -_-

    Removing hard water stains

    Lol I'm plenty old enough (creeping up on 30) but I still wouldn't trust myself with sharp objects I've tried using a razor before but could never get the last of the film off. But good news! The paper towel trick worked wonders and I barely had to scrub the other two sides. Now I just have to...

    Removing hard water stains

    Oops, guess I forgot to mention that part lol. It's a 20 gallon standard. I could probably get it into my tub but it's pretty narrow (the tub) so I'm worried about it rocking and stressing the glass of the tank.

    Removing hard water stains

    Literally and figuratively, it stinks! My arms ache from scrubbing and I haven't even finished one side yet. Not to mention I absolutely despise the smell of vinegar. I have paper towels soaked with vinegar stuck to the long sides but I'm just spraying and scrubbing the short sides (I ran out of...

    5.5 gallon stocking question!

    I almost feel guilty making another reply recommending endler's but... I absolutely love them! You can definitely have some in a 5 gallon as long as you get ONLY males so you don't have crazy amounts of fry in no time. They're tiny, but very colorful, active and full of personality. Plus...

    Replacement for my AquaClear 50?

    When I set up my 20 gallon standard, I was recommended the AquaClear 50 for filtration. Bought it, loved it, figured it would last a long time. I was wrong. Our power blinked off for 2 seconds last week during an ice storm. All my filters restarted without issue, or so I thought. By the...

    Very Low-Tech Planted Shrimp Tank

    If you go with a sand substrate, definitely get Malaysian Trumpet Snails (MTS). They burrow in the sand and stir it for you. They do have the potential to reproduce like crazy if you overfeed a lot, but if you feed in moderation you shouldn't have a population explosion. Or if you do you can...

    help on stocking my 20 gallon

    A school of Endler's Livebearers would also look quite nice! They're very colorful, extremely active and have great personalities. Plus they come in a variety of colors. However, it is VERY important that you only get males if you do not have the ability to deal with the MASSIVE amount of fry...
