GH and TDS too low. In my experience, GH lower than 5 and you will start seeing molting issues. TDS could go up another 50-100 and be safe for both the CRS and RCS. Neos tend to like much harder...

You keep any natural antibacterials in the tank? Alder cones, IAL, dried green walnut leaf, guava leaves, etc are natural ways to help without doing dosing to a tank with chemicals. I also keep...

I totally feel ya, but when it comes down to running 4-7 pumps or 1 pump to run all of them you're going to get more bang for your buck not to mention probably using less electricity. Check Ebay for...

Oh and the tannins from the IAL leaf is probably what caused the smell. If it's an earthy sort of dirt smell that can happen. Not bad but I don't like smelly water either:)

Your pH is great for CRS...not so much for RCS. GH/KH is more key in my opinion as well as TDS. Your water changes are way too large and way too often, causes stress and parameter shifts and is the...

I keep most of my tanks between 0-5. If you have tons of plants and don't fertilize, it's pretty easy to have a nitrate of 0 in my experience.

If it happens when you change your water you are altering parameters too quickly or temp is dropping too rapidly. Use an airline to drip your water in to avoid shifts. A bacterial infection won't...

When they are babies they can have red eyes, they eventually turn black. They are goldens or snow whites more than likely.

The pH will not stabilize until the cycle is over. What you are going through is very common. Plus RO water has no KH which keeps pH stable, that's why you use buffering substrate, helps with no KH...

Rhabdaceola absolutely can appear in those numbers. They do not usually hide in substrate either. They travel any surface in the tank, cluster on walls when lights first come on.

Filter media from an established tank kickstarts a cycle, it does not instantly cycle a tank. If it did we'd all be doing it. Fish aren't shrimp and can survive more ammonia and nitrates than a...
