I wish i thought that!
I have dirt particles that sit on top of the sand....

|stonevs||You're sand is really clean looking! Nice job.|

|xjasminex||I know, that would be great! Mine only eat plants when I don't feed them regularly, that's why I have the automatic feeder, it seems to work pretty good too!|

Ha ha...a jungle. Too funny.
I just moved my crew into a 120g and I have no regrets even thought the tank is HUGE.
I've been very lucky my guys don't eat plants, except for crypts. I wish I knew why they leave plants alone. I could bottle it and sell it to goldfish keepers.

Doing well, they seem to be getting bigger day by day...and not a day goes by that I don't want to get them a bigger tank!
When and if I ever move out of my parents house I plan to get a bigger tank and plant it full of plants and let it turn into a jungle before I put them in!
I'm also looking into a plastic mesh I can use to separate the dirt layer from the sand layer...I always seem to have an issue with fine dirt particles sifting up and hanging out on top of the sand... I wonder if a dirt then small gravel then sand layer would help too...

|Sajacobs||It's a big difference in nitrates. How are your Goldies?|

|xjasminex||Yea, it's not as easy as I was hoping, but I think it's a bit better.|

|Sajacobs||Pics would be great. It sort of sounds like its still hard to tell the difference between the levels of nitrates.|

Finally used the new sera nitate test kit.
I do believe that it is a little easier to read.
I compared it to my API...before the water change the sera kit said my nitrates were about 30-35...My API kit said it was in the 40-80 range...so big jump....
Sam, if you want i can take pics and post them too!

|Sajacobs||Ha Ha....me too. It goes like this...."hum, looks like 10, no it's 20. Ok let me go outside....ok it's 20 but no maybe 10. But under my kitchen light it's 10. ok it's 10. But if I'm wrong my fish will get sick. Ok, ok...I'm doing a water change." The dialog is frustrating.|

I'm totally with you on that...I go room to room looking for the best lighting...
|07-17-2013 01:12 PM|
|Sajacobs||Keep me posted on the testing kit. I'm frustrated with API since I can't figure out the difference between 10 and 20 and 40 and 80.|
|07-17-2013 07:25 AM|
They usually make it up to 40 before I do a water change. Sometimes it's hard to tell if my bamboo is working....but it has to be doing something!
I also just bought a sera nitrate test kit and it's making its way to me!

|Sajacobs||Your fish are getting big. The tank looks amazing. How's the nitrates?|
