I just broke down my whole tank for the first time in 5 years, and I'm very glad I didn't put anything permanent in. I am thinking about putting some nylon needlepoint mesh in and trying to find a...

As much as I love great stuff expanding foam, that sounds like a super permanent solution - right? It's stuck on there for live isn't it?

Also, if I put the filter intake back there, I want to...

Yea I get different reports on whether a bristle nose will munch on plants.. As long as it's not too bad, I think I will be ok.

That's ok with me - everyone in the tank munches on baby neocardinas and it seems to be making them all happier (except the neo's)

sounds good to me. My tank is low tech, lots of bubbles so no o2 issue. I also put ken's veg/algae sticks in a lot to help the shrimp out, so probably the plec could eat that if he cleaned up...

considering bristlenose

hi all -

I love the bristlenose plecos - they are so cool to look at and it would be great to have another algae eater in the tank. But I wonder:

- are there any that will stay small? What is...

This is great news for me. I think I'm going to pull my huge piece of driftwood right out of the tank, take the anubias off completely, trim this really nicely, then tie them back on. There are so...

After 4 summers with the neo's I've noticed that they just don't fare well during the summer. Many survive, but a lot don't and the population isn't stable. The shrimp aren't able to grow their...

Actually I wouldn't :) I fought against this heat for a long time and fans/lights only did so much to help. I can bring it from like 84 to 80 if I leave the lights off completely (for weeks) and run...

Ahh interesting. If they only grow from the 'tip' I guess I can just cut it down and let it start it's journey again.

I like the roots, they look really cool and some of them are reaching like 8...

Hi al -

My tank stays at around 75 during the winter, but it gets so hot here in Denver that sometimes in the winter it's over 80 for days or even a couple of weeks. I really don't want to have a...

I do have a bunch of MTS and ramshorns in the tank, and sometimes I see them cruising the brown stuff, but not that much interest. There is just one thing I REALLY don't like about...

I really think it's not dust from the safe-t-sorb. It was really well rinsed, has been in the tank for a very long time, and nothing has unsettled it recently. Also, it's very soft - not sandy or...

I can very easily brush it off, even just by waving my hand around and pushing water. The brown stuff is very soft, I can barely feel it. It feels like I would expect mulm to feel! The thing is, it's...
