Congrats on your deal, but this is ridiculous. I can buy a 10 gallon tank for $75 around here if I find a good deal...

Ugh, I'm over filtering the crap out of my tank, but I have a tall piece of driftwood that comes up from the middle bottom of the tank to the top right which really inhibits flow.

Are you also running pressurized CO2? I have a planted+ over the same tank and am facing some minimal algae issues. Without pressurized CO2 I would be afraid to add more lighting.

You are so right. I did this not too long ago on a much smaller tank I owned. Crusty hard water stains and gunk everywhere.

As the title says, really. After I discovered what was basically a trickle of water coming out of my 2215 output I cleaned the filter last night. Put everything back together and discovered I now had...

I've had issues with tap before and probably still do. I don't know what's wrong so I run the air stone for 24 hours after a WC which seems to work. Even when I had deaths as a result of WC's they...

Identifying cause for mass fish deaths (part 2)

As some of you may remember I posted here and in another sub forum about deaths I experienced after every water change. Theories regarding gas in the water, toxins, altered chemistry, were had. Well,...

I've seen my two rasping on swords I think. I added more vegetable matter like sweet potato and zucchini which seems to have slowed it down.

I mostly only noticed them rasping when there was no...

I haven't seen these mentioned - Black Phantom Tetra - not to be confused with Black Skirt Tetra which appear to be different. I also really enjoy Black Neon's though my wife does not.

I've had experience with those vacation feeders and, personally, I wouldn't bother. All they've done is foul up my tank. I'm not really sure they've even provided the fish with any nutrition. Every...

I'll take a stab at this briefly. Tiger barbs, danio's, cory's, tetra's, and (I think) mollie's, all prefer to be in schools/shoals. They'll all exhibit more natural behaviors, feel more secure, and...

I think most estimates are about 2 - 3 inches worth. That's what I ended up doing in my 40 gallon and it looks like a bit much in some places. In a smaller tank I only have one inch or so since I...
