I once saw a demo tank at my LFS. There was a fish bowl in the tank, with a plastic duck and some other stuff I don't remember, and a single goldfish, that made a nice funny scene!

This is what I am going to do. When the QT is not in use it will be stored away and the filter will run on my 95g so it is always ready when I need it.

I don't expect I will need to sterelize the...

Seeding a new filter

I just bought a cheap 10g with a tetra whisper filter to use as a quarantine tank. Instead of the media that it came with, I put some sponge-floss material, very similar to the white pads in the...

My corydoras are an old couple, I have had them for 12 years and they seem very happy by themselves. And you know how the youngs are these days, no respect for their elders!

Funny that green neon tetras are actually more blue than green. But I thought neon tetras were very active swimmers? 20g seems quite small for a school, it's the kind of fish I would keep in a larger...

Thanks, I will look for info about red jewels. On most pictures the red jewels are much more red and less blue so I was not sure it was the same species.

I went to my LFS last week and they had 2 couples of "Jevels" (one of the tank was full of fry!). This is the first time I ever really noticed these fish.

Comparing LEDs 3W vs 30W

I would like to know how the output of 3W LEDs at 700mA compare to 30W at 1000mA.

Am I right if I say the relative power of a LED it WxA?
30Wx1000A = 30,000
3Wx700A = 2,100
So one 30W LED would...

I used styrofoam to fill space and make a hill. And there are enough rocks in the slope, the sand should hold well and not slide down too much.
