The tank is in a dining room. It's not on the dining room floor, or under any furniture.

I was planning on breeding guppy. But yeah this behaviour is indeed an issue. Then I remembered some time...

The tank is only 20G.

There is quite a bit of plants and wood, but there are not many spots that you can't see either from the front, side, or top. The only spot that is not visible is where the...

I don't know I would want to dry my wood in an oven. I would try putting it in a pail and submerge it with boiling water, and then let it sit for a while.

Paraguard is a mix of aldehyde and malachite green. I don't think the former will last many days in water. The later will probably persist longer, for how long I can't tell you. If you want peace of...

I don't know why folks resort to personal attack in forum like this, because she did something you couldn't? Ignorance and arrogance is a potent mix.

Yeah even when tied on wood, they will eventually reach into the substrate. And about a third of them aren't tied on anything but simply planted into the substrate.

Thank you for those info, it will take me some time to digest.

I use tap water, I can see scales forming on the water line, so I suppose I should be fine in the GH department. Although the water...
