Hey, that sounds just like my water! I hate it, I'm always dumping vinegar on everything to keep the limescale at bay. Our landlord won't let us put in a water softener, for whatever convoluted...

Pseudomugils are my favorites! They are wonderful fish, feisty and personable. My gertrudaes bred easily, but I didn't have a set up to keep the babies in. The adults would find and eat them within a...

Your light is too intense, but the duration isn't long enough. Remove a bulb, or if you can, lift them up so it isn't so intense. Increase the photoperiod to around 8 hours.

When I was in 4H, I had Figuritas and American Fantails. They were tons of fun, until a family of coons ripped up the fencing and killed most of them. We "coon proofed" the fence, but the survivors...

I'm an idiot.

I just noticed the spoon I use to measure my ferts is 1/8 tsp. I thought it was 1/4. So while I've been dosing my tank, I've been dosing half of what I should have been. Granted,...

Two water changes later and the hardness is starting to drop down, although I did add a small amount of epsom salt. I also sucked it up and got an algae scraper for the tank. Didn't realize how much...

It's been a week. The plants are not growing well- twisted leaves and tips. I asked the question on the plant specifics, and basically the response was not enough co2.

Turned up the co2, and I'll soften the water with a water change today. The snails were all riding around at the top of the water last night, so I'm pretty sure there is more co2 being injected. I ...

I'll bump up my co2 some more. I'm also going to set it on a timer to go on an hour before my lights. Right now they are turning on at the same time.

Is it possible that my water is too hard for these rotalas? I don't think that's the deal, but I'm no expert.

Bumped the photoperiod up to seven hours today. I'll slowly bump it up to eight hours,...

I'd guess there's about half a teaspoon of crushed coral total, so it's not a ton. I'm hoping it'll burn out before too long. Shouldn't crushed coral be adding calcium? It's calcium carbonate...

Plant deficiencies, not sure what's up.
