Oh wow....didn't even notice (I'm on tapatalk). However, I'm pretty sure both Petco and Craigslist are operating there. Idk about dollar per gallon though ;) Maybe liter per rand?

I can totally understand what you're saying, but in all honesty, CO2 is dirt cheap. I spend maybe twenty bucks every 4 months on my 75 (20lb container) and I blast the gas. I also run my CO2 tanks...

What kind of 55 do you have? Unless it's custom, I'd just buy one at PetCo during their dollar/gallon sale. 55 bucks verse 15 bucks in supplies and a whole lot of work. If the sale isn't going on...

Milwaukee controllers are pretty much a base model. You could certainly do better, but I think I would just recommend passing on it. I remember when I first started using CO2 I went and bought myself...

Do yourself a favor and start a tank with ADA substrate. Not what the Neos need, but that will be your best bet for housing CRS. Plus it will provide a good foundation for your pants. This is my 20L...

Although hydrogen peroxide has not proved as beneficial against bga as it is with bba. BGA can be dealt with by increasing flow to that area, manual removal, and increasing nitrates.

I've seen someone use UGFs with ADA, but they cordoned off an area for the UGF and filled it with filtration media. Then they put ADA on top of all of that.

Cory cats are sensitive to medications. Why did you medicate, anyway? I would guess its the back to back moves coupled with medications (which are always harsh on fish).

There really isn't a need to adjust timing. Just set it to turn on 60 minutes before your lights come on and turn off around 30-60 minutes before lights go out. These are just ball park figures but...

You definitely have a leak. I don't even know what size tank you have, but that co2 will certainly last more than three days. Should last over a month from the looks of your tank size. You need to...

Some good info, but be careful with the inch per gallon rule. It doesn't really hold much value when considering territorial issues, waste production, filtration, and what not.

I don't recall ever having moist ADA so I would be worried about that rather than the dry. ADA has a weird texture so I think it may get mistaken for wet. I don't know how "moist" your bags were,...

Overdosing slightly is not going to help. You need to use spot treatment. I use 1 ml to 1 gallon of water, but that's not set in stone. Just depends on how much bba there is. Truthfully this is only...
