Powerhead in a pressurized CO2 setup

I'm having some flow issues in my 55 with only one canister. The obvious solution is to add a powerhead. I'm planning to go pressurized CO2 in the next several months, but don't want to wait until...

I did some checking this morning. I was wrong about the light. It's a 20 W "Life Glo" T8 bulb. It's in the plastic hood, no reflector.

Do any of these plant suggestions still hold?

I have a 26 gallon flat-back hex. It's got about 3 inches of tahitian moon sand as the substrate. Light is a 32W T8. My java fern and anubias are growing slowly with Seachem ferts and Excel. ...

My fish don't like zucchini

Of all my tanks, I would think that the one of 8 Ottos and 12 BN fry would be the tank where zucchini would disappear super fast. The little buggers don't touch it :icon_roll

Oh well, my African...

Just squish a couple of your smaller ones against the side of the tank. The loaches will catch on quickly. I have swordtails that attack as soon as the snail body falls these days. The loaches...

I'm having the same problem in my 5 gallon hex. I don't dose Excel. Not sure what's causing it. Keeping up on dosing regular flourish seems to be slowing it down.

I'd let it sit for a day or two to let all your fog settle out. You can move the canister and the fish over after that. The established filter will keep you from having much of a cycle. Get some...

I added 2 Yoyo Loaches to a 20L that was infested with MTS. Now I have trouble finding a live snail larger than 1/4 inch. If you want snail genocide, Yoyos have worked wonders for me.
