Are you looking to just get rid of it quick or actually make some money on the deal?

The $400 range you mentioned seems pretty high for a used setup. If you're looking for that kind of money I...

Looks great! Did you purchase the stand and canopy or was that a build as well? Are the cabinet handles on the stand purposefully on an angle or is that an optical illusion?

Planted tanks do no necessarily stunt young discus. Young discus raised in a planted tank may be stunted; but the plants are not the cause. The problem is that in most planted tanks, you're not...

Seems pricey to me; but I can only compare to the prices of a glass tank. Not sure if acrylic really increases the value all that much. If this was a glass tank I would probably offer around $150...

I tried the plastidip on the back of a 55 gallon. Came out great; but required many more coats than I ever expected to get full coverage. I went through at least 3 cans to cover that one tank well.

Even if you dont plan on breeding, I would get a male/female combo. That will likely result in the best coloration of both fish.

Also, do yourself a favor and find a reputable breeder. I see...

While I dont have a complete failure to report, my tetra tank that leaked from the get go is certainly not very reassuring. I dont think many of us buy a brand new tank and expect to have to reseal...

The last tetra tank I got isn't the greatest. But I dont know if I would say it isn't "good". Seems the quality just isnt the same as some of the other brands. Looks like they use the least amount...

Wow. maybe I'm getting a bit jaded; but that sounds pretty expensive for a used setup. I would pay no more than $1/gallon for a used tank (considering you can get a new tank for that price when the...

Salt is a mineral so what you're really seeing is "mineral creep". I too get that salt creep look and never add salt to my tanks. I think its a sign of hard water if I'm not mistaken.

What caused the mate to die and how old was that mate? Supposedly the lifespan of most GBRs is rather short. With that in mind, this 2 year old fish could be an old timer and may be nearing the end.

I'll also chime in and say 12 hours is too much with the light. Keep it down at 8 hours or so a day; and maybe even split that up into two 4 hour periods.

You should expect to see all of your...

I see a male and a female. What I've come to find is that looking at the anal fin is the best way to sex them as the other traits tend to be muddled and/or difficult to discern.
