It may seem like overkill to some, but if you do a couple of small water changes that are really just part of a maintenance routine, and a 30% once a week, you'll probably see fewer problems than...

Not uncommon at all.

The hard thing to understand about angelfish behavior is that it only fits into general categories. They tend to provide exceptions to every "rule".

So as lksdrinker clued...

My 180G planted Angels/Discus tank is a peninsula, and I run Purigen in one of the two canisters. Being able to see very clearly through 6 feet of water makes for quite a site to an old fish geek...

I remember ordering T5's from them a bunch of years ago, and I think they put mints in the top of the tube they were packed in. Obviously, somebody there has a sense of humor!

If you've ever seen the price of bio-balls, the alternatives are all about saving money.

It's all about surface area, and plastic pot scrubbers from the dollar store fit the bill very well.

It's been several years for me as well, but even if you didn't buy that Carib-Sea product as a "live snad", it was when you shut the tank down. There's a tremendous amount of bacteria in the mix that...

I would also suggest steering clear of Otos despite their popularity in community and nano settings. They really do develop an affinity for the slime coat of flat-bodied fish. They enjoy rasping at...
