I'm not really after precision exactly-right spectrum lighting, but I do need to do better than "lowish light". Is that all LEDs are good for?

I keep jungle vals in my sand-bottomed goldfish tank. They're the best goldfish plant I've found because they grow in a mat the fish can't uproot. Apparently they don't taste good, either. It's not...

I understand. :)

Luckily these fish are pretty tolerant and if they're unhappy they don't sneak off and die. They let you know.

Anyway, guess the following few weekends will be spent upgrading...

Hehe. Thanks. I have had the pH difference pretty much since shortly after I set up this tank so I think my old test is reading close enough. And I have subjected my goldfish to sort of large water...

Dusted off the test kit. Now I remember the pH thing that always struck me as weird and made me nervous about large water changes. Tank pH 6.0 (or less), tap water 7.8. Nitrite 0, nitrate 5-10, KH 1...

I think I have green spot algae on the sides of my tank (but not the plants). Is this that?

I'd chill them if they were that sneaky. Make a nice block of dechlorinated ice and slow them down.

After that, witchcraft.

Thanks. These guys are ramshorns and like to drop when they sense a disturbance so I'll probably need to put it in a container but it does seem like a good use for zucchini. :)

I've never noticed a lack of clear water due to slime coats. My goldfish tank is always as clear as my tropical tank.

Goldfish do perfectly fine in heated tanks--some even do better.

But why...

Siting a tank under glass. Bad or really bad?

Howdy!

I'm moving and have no place to put my aquarium in the new house. I should have measured.
