That was the only thing I could come up with as well. I don't know why the increased pressure on the outflow from additional equipment makes it stop though. But I haven't noticed it at all with the...

I've had problems with the same thing from my XP3. Seems to only happen to me when the plants are pearling, and the lights are on. Funny thing is, only one of them ever did it. The one running the...

I'm having a similar problem. I've had a tank up and running for 3+ years and no issues with film. But a couple of months ago, I re-homed my two pearl gouramis and developed film issues almost...

Need to change micros.

I'm not going to pay $109 (+shipping) for 5 liters of Tropica plant nutrition.

So I need to figure out what to use instead. I know quite a few use either Flourish or CSM+B, but I have no...

I was more interested in the benefits of snails for substrate aeration than for algae cleaning. I think I have that covered.

Just curious, are there other differences besides the color variations? Behavior etc.

Are snails necessary?

Somehow, through dumb luck or some other twist of fate, I managed to set up and maintain a planted tank without snails. Actually, that is not entirely true. I did get some pond snails with my very...

I think what most everybody is talking about is adding something like Seachem's equilibrium or RO right to add some electrolytes, kH, and GH to the RO water.

I'd probably be more likely to own more guns if I lived in CA.

But I agree with you that we are worlds apart. But if you think about it, our guns/capita ratio is probably a lot higher here. Why...

Well, I too, often had at least one rifle or shotgun in my pickup at school. I guess I'm in that generation. I was raised with guns and ammo in an unlocked closet. And I knew for sure when I was...

I might be off base here, but aren't you dosing nitrates, and using denitrate at the same time? Plants need some nitrate to thrive and to outcompete the algae. Is yours really at 0?

Oh, one other thing. I've been O.K. with the Renas so far. They are easy to setup and maintain. The one thing that really bugged me was the misleading advertising. For example, the XP3's are...

I think this is digressing into a semantic discussion of what a filter's role actually is. I know what purpose it serves.

I guess the reason I started this thread is two-fold.

1) I'm concerned...

Are two XP3's enough????

On a fully planted 75g tank? I wonder about this. I have two XP3's running on my 75 right now. One is powering my CO2 reactor, and the other my UV sterilizer. I know that the advertised flow rate on...

I think it has to be the CO2. I just tried moving 5 rummys out of the qt and into the main tank and ended up fishing all of them back out. They looked like they essentially "passed out" floating...

angel fish issue

Alright, this is kinda weird. I bought 5 koi angels from a reputable breeder on Aquabid. They made the trip well and were placed in my 10g quarantine tank for two weeks. They all did well and were...

My wife noticed that one of my new koi angels has what appears to be a profile of someone (as she says) eating a banana.

I instantly named it "Linda"

Not that it matters a lot, but I think 48x18x24 would be closer to a 90 gal. My 75 is 48x18x20.
