I am not doing CO2, only Excel and some fertilizer. I'm hesitant to use an LED light because you can't replace the bulbs (right?) and that makes it seem like it has a very limited lifetime. My...

Dead light strip...can I fix it?

I've had a Coralife 96W Aqualight Strip for five years. A few days ago I came home and the light was out. I changed the bulb but it still didn't come on. It seems to be dead. There were no "symptoms"...

I was keeping them at 75-77 until the ich started. Then I gradually raised the temperature to 85. Now I'm gradually lowering it beck to 75-77.

He's acting normal. He just looks strange.

I don't think I could have put 8 hatchet fish in a 5 gallon tank and had very good results, but I will look into a QT tank.

Any idea how long it will take to get them to a decent size? Decent size = won't fit in the mouth of a Bolivian Ram. I was planning to do a pretty big rescape of this tank soon but I've...

That's a pretty fish, too!
