Well I guess I didn't discover the problem. My angelfish died this morning and I have absolutely no clue as to why, other than my theory about the Hydor FLO. :(

BTW, Hydor is shipping me new gears.

Angel fish gasping for air?

For some reason my angel fish, which has been in the tank for at least two months, appears to be gasping for air. I've also noticed it twitching from time to time. All my other fish are fine.

Nerite snails?

This winter I tried adding about a dozen nerite snails to my tank, but none of them survived. I'm not sure whether it was the stress from shipping them in cold weather or a problem with my tank. I'm...

I just changed the fluid in my drop checker and it was way faded. How long should it take the newly recharged drop checker to register the CO2 in the tank?

pH Probe?

I may need a new pH probe for my Aquatic Life pH controller. Where is the cheapest place to get a good one?

I think my issue was circulation. After I reinstalled the Hydor Flo the drop checker readings are more consistent than what I was getting.

Agreed. My goal here is to rid my tank of BBA and I think low CO2 is the culprit. Thanks for your help.

First off, the fish are fine, but I'm having issues with BBA, which I suspect is due to too little CO2. A few weeks ago I was changing the aquarium water and I accidentally let the pH probe dry out....

So, I'm way overdue. I have one of these drop checkers: http://www.greenleafaquariums.com/co2-drop-checkers/cal-double-check.html

Does that mean I need to change the reference solution too?

Okay, I'll give it a shot. So, if I started my CO2 at noon today the drop checker should clearly be lime green by now, correct?

So, should I put the Hydor Flo back or reposition the pump diverter to change the flow in the tank?

In the past I was able to achieve that at 6.25 pH. Now, I am 5.8 pH and the drop checker is still not lime green. Last night, I calibrated my pH controller and it seems to be working fine. The only...

Laura, I take it you're suggesting spot treating with Excel instead of H2O2, which is fine with me. Is that correct? Is the Excel spot treating maximum dosage 1ml?

Thanks,
Kelly

Actually, this sounds good too. And yes, I've been neglecting my EI ferts. Plus, I accidentally let my pH controller probe dry out with the last water change, so I probably need to recalibrate it.

So spot treat full strength with H2O2, but use no more than 1.5 ml total treatment, which for me would be 43.5 ml for a 29-gallon tank, correct?

Spot treating BBA with H2O2?

How does one do this, or is better to simply does H2O2. BTW, I have about 12 Amano shrimp in this tank.

Thanks,
