What can be added to raise KH without raising pH?

This is in a tank where I'm already adding a small bit of MgSO4 to raise the GH (San Francisco water is incredibly soft... go Hetch Hetchy!!!)

When it comes back, take a small brush, like a pastry brush, and brush on some hydrogen peroxide directly to the fungus and all around the area. Fungus dies almost instantly with that stuff. You...

Wow, I didn't know the algae wafers had protein in them.

I guess the solution is just overall less tank food and cut back on the wafers (of which I would feed about twice a week).

Thanks!

24-36 hours. I've checked at all hours of the day and night and I just never see them on the treats, nor do I see much evidence of eating.

My inverts don't eat any goodies

So I see people feeding their inverts (and ottos/SAE's) blanched zucchini, cucumber, peas, spinach, and so I've been trying for months to do the same. The thing is that when I do so, nobody eats...

Yup, that's the direct replacement for the tubing on the outflow. Remember that the 2211 has a smaller outflow than on the intake, which is the 12/16 tubing. Also, 10ft is *way* too much tubing for...

Holy crap! I'll have to try that when I get my order of fiss and mini pelia.

Did you use the gel or just straight up super glue, and did you drain the tank first or just put it right under water?...

Wait, so what kind of "glue" did you use to attach the Stauro to the driftwood in the first setup? I can't think of any adhesive that would cure in wet/damp conditions.

I could not think of a worse filter to use on a long tank. The 501 has the flow output of a drinking fountain. In the desert. Of a poor 3rd world country.

That's a seriously beautiful tank you made there!
