Has anyone else had their amanos completely ignore the ground cover? It's as if they are afraid of the grass.

Getting slime out of my dwarf hair grass????

I searched a bit, but didn't find anything that directly addressed this issue, so here goes.

How does one get green, stringy, slimy algae out of a dwarf hair grass bed? My tank has been doing...

How cool are these guys!!!

Since I've last checked in, I've done a bit of work.

I decided to spread out my DHG to better encourage a lawn. (since I can't seem to grow one in my yard!) It was rooting before, so hopefully...

When this sort of cycle is complete you have grown only a small colony of bacteria, enough to handle the waste from the fish you used to supply the ammonia. To add more fish you will have to go...

Yes, I put them in, feed them and let it go.

To be completely honest, you are getting far too caught up in the details. Keep your hands out of your tank, enjoy your fish, and let it happen. ...

When I cycle a tank, I conceded that the fish cycling the tank is going to have a rough time. It just is. If the well being of you fish is of paramount importance, which is a good thing, wait it...

I commend your attention to doing things right, but don't let it keep you up at night. Test daily, and you'll learn a lot about the process.

You will see your ammonia spike, then drop inversely...

How you cycle (on a long enough timeline) doesn't matter. The result is the same. Wendyjo's method will give you a passable bio-filter right way, but it will still have to mature over time. My...

Given my return to the hobby I've noticed two things.

1: Having done reefs for so long, my species knowledge of fresh has severely atrophied.
2: I need a bigger tank!!!! It's like smoking. ...

I see your point Wendyjo, but I would consider that transplanting a partial bio filter which may be sufficient for a limited bio-load. "Cycling a tank" is to have all surfaces become colonized to...

How exactly are you using this tank to cycle another? You can seed the other tank with "dirty" media, but in the end, the surfaces of the new tank will have to get colonized on their own time. ...

You definitely run the risk of harming your cycle fish; it's unavoidable. That's why super hardy species that can hack this sort of thing are best. It's kind of hard to get around that unless you...

No harm in that. I just don't agree with the advice you were given. I wouldn't change any more until your nitrites are at zero. Then change almost all of it. You wouldn't starve a fish if you wanted...

It's good to hear that GBRs can be successful alone. I have no interest in breeding and I'd rather not load up my tank pointlessly.

Something from underwater

Love the black and white. I've started to dabble with it for marine photography but you've really exemplified it with the hands and baby foot. Texture is perfect!

How does one trim an amazon sword? Cut leaves partially or just remove the longest leaves leaving the shorter/younger ones? Seems like the latter would be more attractive.
