I've got the same thing. A couple of shrimp and a basketball size globe of moss. They just like the moss. It seems like when I feed them it just encourages the snails to be fruitful and multiply.

It might start looking better when it gets closer to the light. I've had things that didn't establish for months with CO2.

How big of a tank is that filter really good for? Intake one end, outflow the other is really nice. It pushes the junk to one end really well.

I think adding a bunch of fish all at once is too much. It's a "bunch" for your tank size. Adding a few at a time is safer in this regard.

It may be honest but it's really lame. Fish and wildlife regulates hobbyists?

The electric and gas companies often have rebates for insulating. It can be suprising. Lots of houses have little plugs in the siding every 2' from having the walls blown.

WE have pinpointed the problem. A 6 gallon tank is about big enough for 4 neons and a snail. Feed no more than they can clean up in a couple of minutes. It is a very small amount.

I pine away for a 65 gal rimless square tank. It's something like 26x26x21 tall. Skinny tanks stink.

Turning the heater down a couple of degrees might help.

Nitrite poisoning causes redness. Fish gasp and breathe faster. It messes with their ability to exchange CO2 for O2.

J, I just read your thread. Is that pump the one 200-700gph? That's a ridiculous range! The "max" rating would be with no hoses attached, there's more to max flow than the dial on the pump. If...

I run mine in the evening. Any ambient light I get is indirect and through curtains but still, I've got green water in the summer a few times. If I where you, I'd buy some extra nice moonlights.

Lower ph doesn't leave as many deposits in pipes. They inject it at treatment plants for this purpose.

OP, get rid of the carbon and the flocculent and quit changing the water. I'd run one bulb or two way above the tank like a foot? I've never experimented with light height but that's what you need.

I'd deep vac the gravel. 4 years worth of gunk can mess things up imo.

I quit dosing that much in my 75. The dose is for a "heavily planted" tank.
