Diana - so are you saying that a glass tank (with the plastic on the bottom) is OK on a flat top surface as long as all parts of the rim are sitting flush on the surface? Am I reading that right? ...

Questions about tanks and stands

First question is fish specific - I have an adult male angel along with about 5 bronze cories (there'll be more - they breed like rabbits) in a 20 tall. I've been told he's fine in that size tank,...

So you are actually talking about a canister filter and not an internal filter? An internal filter is just that - the entire thing sits inside the tank. There are really no good internal filters...

Ordered an XP1 from Foster & Smith and set it up Friday. It's leaking at the power cord. The tension on the tubes seems fine, the O rings look good but I just smeared a bit of vaseline on them to...

Adding that I've run a 2nd set of tests with the same results and also did a reference test which seems to be accurate.

As I said, I'm not really concerned about the BB dying off thing - was just kind of (over) thinking out loud.

So I was wondering, since Prime neutralizes the chlorine/ammonia and keeps the ammonia available for the biofilter, will the lack of this source of ammonia perhaps make some of the BB die off? And...

My oto will sit on the vege clip one or twice a week and to me this is a sign that he wants some fresh veges, just like when my dog sits at his bowl I know he's wanting to be fed.
