I've had numerous tanks and otos were a staple for every tank. I've never fed my otos once, ever. Never even thought about it. If you're making a planted tank (which is why you're on this forum), you...

For 8, bearded black algae, try getting the low percent hydrogen peroxide sold at grocery or convenient sfores, get a syringe and place some on the troubled spots. It will turn to oxygen and kill the...

I don't have experience with your brand of hang on back filter but I have had noisy ones in the past. One trick that I did was take it apart so you can get the propeller out. Mine had a...

I have ember tetras (though my PH is quite low around 6.2) but I'm sure they can do well in your PH. The more concerning thing is getting too many as soon as your tank is cycled. The hardest part is...

Lol I commend you on doing something different but it's pretty strange to use cat litter. Even if you're saving money you aren't using 50 pounds of it. The best sand at hardware stores wouldn't be...

Looks great, I think we have the same tank and light setup. Just curious, did you mean 60cm or 90cm (I'm pretty sure it's 60 which is 2 feet long).

You did it right, I did it wrong! I went with...

I recently got a small 8 gallon tank and wanted a canister filter to go with it so I could have an inline co2 diffuser. The canister can hang off the side or if you have space below the tank, I would...

Yea I'd say either root tabs or the ottos. I've introduced new fish that killed the whole population. I try not to make that mistake again but it's not always easy to quarantine them if you're low on...

I have that outflow pipe, I think the stream is going to be too strong with it. Especially since it's facing forwards and not left to right. I don't think ada offers too many other metal pipes so...

I use a Fluval G3 for my 25g cube. The G3 doesn't have the strongest flow so it fits the 25g perfectly (I think people use it for tanks up to 50 gallon but then I think the flow would insufficient)....
