A bandsaw cut won't cut it. Buy or find a 40 tooth or better tablesaw blade.

Having three adult kids, I always get a kick out of threads like this. They just crack me up!

That's the way I position it in the three canisters I run as well. Works perfectly. I buy Purigen in the big tub and just use the cheapest mesh bags I can find. A few small grains make it through the...

I decided to try one of the metal shelving units also. The Lowe's version.

I know people say that a 36" tank should fit inside of the 36" units, but my tape measure kept telling me otherwise; so I...

Agreed. In a nutshell, if you can see it floating around, it's not something Purigen can work with. I think you're on the right track thinking the flow rate is the culprit. I think you'll see a...

Nope, just wait for roots to form and not just one tiny thread. A little patience and once you have a decent root mass you can cut them off and plant them. You can trim the really long ones too to...

Don't feel guilty. If you had the guppies for breeding purposes, you'd be in the same boat with runts and culls. It's not fun....at all.

Without a picture, this is where I was headed. Pods are opportunistic omnivores. Which only means they go for the easy meal. I also would suggest moving the snail. If you don't have a spare tank, the...

I'll throw a twist at this:
LFS are a dying commodity. I've ranted about this several times and this isn't likely the last. If there's nothing wrong with the Fluval and it's now used, how does the...
