vals do love to spread. I think the runners will go up and over your barrier, but they'll be a lot easier to control that way. I keep a clump of contortion vals in one corner of my 75 g tank. ...

I'm gonna elbow in here as well. Tom did recommend the Via Aqua 750 a few months ago. Probably on the APD or Wet Thumb Forum. I purchased one from Big Al's and like it real well. I just got a...

I'd second the recommendation on a small group of barbs. If you don't like tiger barbs, there are several other species that are commonly available. They're hardy, active fish, look good, and they...

I'd also recommend a canister filter, but if you don't want to spend the money for an eheim, go with a Via Aqua 750. Big Al's has them at a reasonable price and they are a good filter. Dan

I like loaches and have kept them for several years. I have Yo Yo's in a 75 with angels, neons, Rams, cories, and marble hatchets. They keep the MTS under control there. I have skunk loaches in my...

Rosy barbs and mollies are pretty good about eating hair algae. In fact, most of the barbs are. Bottom line tho, when you find that balance between light, nutrients, and CO2, the algae fades away.

I'd also recommend the Ember Tetras. They're tiny, they color up pretty well, and they're neat to watch. Dan

I like fluorite and Onyx better, but for low budget operations sand works very well. My big tank contains sand blasting grit, just fine sand. Many of my students have also started tanks with it. ...

We have a glass supply place that fixes large tanks. They put a new bottom in my 75 g for a little over a hundred bucks. You might check out that kind of a business. Dan

Crypt willisii or crypt parva will both stay small. Parva takes a little longer to spread and appreciates higher light levels, but both can handle lower light than the small swords. Dan

I've kept skunk loaches in two fairly large tanks, 70 and 150 gallons. They are kind of an aggressive fish, but they didn't do any damage to the other inhabitants. I think you should have a roomy...
