Oops, thought I put that up there.

It's 6.6.

The TDS reader is at my house, I'll bring it into work tomorrow and check it.

I do a 30% water change once a week.

Oy! I went to the hardware store with the light and asked them what I should do and they sold me a straight blade plug to hook it up to. Once I got it wired correctly, super-double-checking the right...

I have the same tank and my moonlights stopped working. My local fish store swapped out a new light for me. Maybe ask where you purchased it at or contact fluval directly? If I recall the warranty...

Do you think that would be okay? All of the outlets upstairs are on the same fuse, does it make a difference if the power being used is coming from different outlets?

Also, how stupid would it be...

Overall electrical impact of a 29g?

I've been humming and hawing about setting up my 29g long tank and have been afraid to commit to anything, so it is empty on its future home: a dresser in my computer room.

Just the other day I...

Mmm, good question, forgot to mention! I usually change 1.5 to 2 bucketfuls. Which, visually, looks to be 30% of the water? 20 gallon tank.

However, I just googled to see how much water an average...

It may have been longer than what I normally do, but I've been slack about water changes in the past with the same tank. Usually I do every week, sometimes I'll miss a week, and it'll be a two week...

Unhappy Afraid to change my water!

Hello everyone,

About a month ago I did a water change. Before the water change, the ammonia and nitrites were 0ppm, and the nitrates were, if I recall, a bit high, 5 ppm maybe? The pH was 6.8....

Yeah I read that the rule of thumb about an inch per fish is pretty misleading, so I figured I'd ask just how many fish the 5 gallon could handle. How do shrimp factor into the equation? What would...
