    Is it normal that the babies are all over the leaves?

    Buying Fish Online

    Aquatic Arts has quality fish. I was very happy with them. The Wet Spot also sells healthy fish but I've won bids they put on Aquabid, sent numerous emails inquiring about prices, etc. and no one responded. That turned me off to them.

    Tank Over Run With Malaysian Trumpet Snails

    Aww man! I only got them a while back bc I read so much that claims they don't eat plants. I would get an assassin snail, but I have a few nerites that I don't want eaten. There are also shrimp in my tank...not sure if the assassin snails would pose a danger to them. Would anyone agree that they...

    Tank Over Run With Malaysian Trumpet Snails

    As much as I don't want to admit it, my tank in over run with Malaysian Trumpet Snails. I know they're not supposed to eat live plants but my plants are covered in babies and are constantly floating at the top because they are getting pulled/knocked out. I think the snails are to blame. Is this...

    White Cloudy Clusters?

    I have a small 10 gallon tank which was set up for the sole purpose of raising fry. I wasn't having much luck with it and I honestly all but abandoned the thing after my last batch of eggs went bad ...or so I thought. I went downstairs yesterday to start draining and lo-and-behold there like 4...

    Mystery Disease

    I have pic to try and show the symptoms of what will be Praecox Rainbow number four that has succumbed to this really slow disease/ parasite that I can't seem to figure out so I can get rid of it. The main symptoms are swollen gill, usually just on one side. The swelling is progressive to point...

    Swollen Gill On One Side Only...

    This is the third fish over a span of five months or so that developed a swollen gill on one side only. The fish seems a little slowed down and if she's doomed to suffer the same fate as the others, she'll be dead in 3-5 days. These fish have all been Praecox Rainbows. I haven't really seen any...

    Kh And Gh Imbalance?

    Thanks. This is all the more reason I want a whole house water filtration and softening system.

    What Is Going On With My Plants?

    GH is between 120-180, so I'd say 150-ish.

    What Is Going On With My Plants?

    Is it possible to increase KH without raising the pH?

    What Is Going On With My Plants?

    So I'm worried about raising the GH. Can I just add potassium on it's own without using Equilibrium? Also what's the consensus on using baking soda for raising KH?

    Kh And Gh Imbalance?

    That's along the lines of what I am thinking. I'm researching the baking soda thing because it's readily available in my kitchen. I'm wondering if I should add some potassium to aquarium. The leaves are discolored, have holes and are disintegrating. I'm unsure of what I should supplement. I...

    Kh And Gh Imbalance?

    Okay so I've been having a hard time as of late keeping my plants healthy and black brush algae at bay. Someone in a previous thread suggested Equilibrium. I've got my hands on some now and I did a quick test on the water first. Granted, these are the strips I'm using so I know they aren't...

    What Is Going On With My Plants?

    Excellent advice. Thank you! Also, do you think running a UV sterilizer might help? I have one, I have yet to actually use it because I was on the fence.

    What Is Going On With My Plants?

    I am admittedly a novice when it comes to planted aquariums. My tank has been running since June and I have learned the hard way which plants are compatible with me. Now, even my hardest plants...anubias, java fern are looking kind of pitiful. I'm not super consistent with adding Excel and...
