Hi, I did think of that, but the first thing that came to my mind is that I'm kinda fat and getting unwieldy in my middle age, so I'm not hot on the idea. But the big problem I see with that is what...

Question Yarg, what is suddenly up with this Anubias?

This Anubias var. nana is several years old and now lives in a 10 gal with a UGF. It was just an "extra" that I threw in for lack of space, and then suddenly the tank looked beautiful, so I nurtured...

I don't have P and K tests, but I have a nitrate test, and it reads zero. I've had plants including the mother to this sword grow fine with a zero nitrate reading, but that tank was never vacuumed,...

Question Does Fuorite and similar ever get "used up?"

I have Profile in my tanks. It's mostly getting onto 10 years old now. Does it ever need to be replaced?

[edit] Ugh, "Fluorite." Lesson: proofread your titles.
