Do you have the pipe sticking way up from the hole in the bottom of the tank to about an inch below where the water comes into the overflow box? It sounds like you don't, from your description. I'm...

Here's what I do and it works well for me, in case you want to give it a try:

I have a nice, fairly flat rock (about 3" x 5") that is covered with a thick layer of moss. I put this into...

It depends on a couple of factors: type of plants and how long you have to keep the salt in there. For a shorter term, your plants will probably be fine. As I mentioned earlier, I personally use...

I've never had ich on established fish ... that is a little odd.

When I have had ich on new fish, heat did the trick for me. Heat isn't a problem with the type of fish that I keep. Once you get...

I really wish there were some good T8 DIY kits available, with good reflectors, etc. I think T8s are a perfect fit for a non-CO2 environment. For non-CO2s, the T5HO kits are a little too powerful for...

Rich:



The nitrifying bacterias turn ammonia into nitrites and then the nitrites into nitrates. Even nitrates can be toxic, but it takes a much higher ppm than ammonia or nitrites (either of...

Phish:

I have heard that ghost shrimp will eat the babies of RCS and other shrimp -- never experienced this first hand (since I've never owned a ghost shrimp), so take it FWIW. Perhaps if you...

Well, I only know that the eggs are fertilized when they get to the tail. Many times, males are tough to find in stores, so you could easily have only females. I finally had to find a local guy to...

My amanos were unhappy when they acted like yours. A water change would get them eating again immediately.
