I'll have a pile of NOID green crypts in a few weeks. Y'all are welcome to them.

They'll probably melt, but they're a few years old and should come back.

You won't be able to buy anything, but I would highly recommend scheduling a tour of Segrest Farms. It's a wholesale distribution operation. It's bigger than you could ever imagine. It looks like...

My random guess is it has something to do with unbuffered water. Is there any reason that you're not adding any kind of buffer?

You will probably wake up to some Oscar housekeeping and the plecos will be the least of your worries as it relates to the Amazon swords. Oscars are diggers, and they're really good at it.

Yeah, don't do that. The shutoff at the vac isn't really meant to turn the water off completely. The entire unit isn't designed to handle that kind of pressure. Rather, it's there to slow the flow...

My Aqueon vac has been great. I had to replace the faucet attachment after a year or two, but it wasn't that big of a deal.

I hover or place the vac on the top of the substrate enough to pull up the surface detritus. You can also swish your gravel vac to stir a little more up. Just don't go crazy. If you're using a...
