Any time my tank gets overrun with pond snails, I just drop an algae wafer in at night. The next morning a lot of them will be swarming all over it. Then I just suck them up with the siphon. But...

I like to have some floating plants in my tank. I have a piece of driftwood that almost reaches the surface so it tends to get algae up there, where the light is intense. Floaters help shield spots...

I have a 29 gallon low tech, no co2 and I wanted to go about as cheap as I could. I went with 2 Bayco clamp lights with 13w 6500k cfls. The bottom of the domes are 27" above the substrate which is...

I've never used it on an aquarium, but you could try plasti-dip. It works just like spray paint but you can peel it off in one big sheet whenever you want. No mess. Just make sure you do 3-4 coats...

Here's mine. I've been messing around with planted tanks for the past two years. I tried high light, co2, and EI dosing on another tank and just got overwhelmed. This is the first time in those two...

I don't think they have a break in period. I have three aquaclears and they've all been pretty silent once all the air passes through. The covers rattle here and there, but you said it's not that....

I have a bristlenose too and it hardly eats any algae. I think the big thing is me spoiling it with algae wafers on a regular basis. I think they just get lazy. Why do any work on the algae when it...

I used their smallest one in my 10 gallon. It worked really well. You certainly won't have trouble with the bubbles reaching the surface, especially in a 29. Stick it under your powerhead and you'll...

Thanks for the replies. I did some searching and actually landed on either the camallanus worms or a prolasped anus (from constipation I guess). The thing about the camallanus worms is that I don't...

Ok, this is really freaky. I threw a little food in so I could get a better look at it. Once the fish started to move around and feed, it receded inside the fish's body. What the hell is this thing?

Parasite/worm on black skirt tetra?

Hello,

Today I was checking out my fish and it looks like something is attached to one of my black skirt's pelvic fins or right behind them. I can't tell if it's moving or what. It doesn't look...

My vals are currently in my 29 gallon under 2 13watt 6500k cfls. The lights are hanging a good foot above the tank too. I'm definitely low light and I have no trouble growing them. Most of them are...

I had corkscrew vals, Vallisneria asiatica I think, in my 10 gallon. It's supposedly one of the smaller vals. If you don't want them laying over on top of the water I would find something else. I...

Thanks for the reply. Well, she hasn't done much to it today, so maybe she'll leave it alone now. The wood the plant is on has a hollowed out section at the top where she likes to hide. You may be...

Bristlenose attacking anubias. Why?

So she's done this before. I just recently planted my 29 and before the tank just had a few plants in it. Like one anubias plant, java fern, some java moss. Well she didn't like the anubias I...

Well, there I go worrying for nothing lol. She's all set up and running smooth. Gauge reads 875 on the high and the tank's been sitting for about 7 hours, so it should be around room temp. Crap, I...

Yeah it will hold 5lbs of liquid but I don't think you're supposed to fill it all the way because you're supposed to leave room for the gas to expand as it warms. I think so anyway. I was looking at...

Pretty sure it's staghorn. Looks like the same stuff I'm dealing with. From what I've read on here, it's caused by low CO2 levels. I have DIY co2 with relatively high lighting so it makes sense for...
