I raised it to 40. Today, there's no output at all, and I can't get the working pressure to go down at all either. It's at about 46 and staying there, no matter how tight I turned the working...

Interesting, Marine Depot has a 11.4g for just $47. That's better than the $80 I was getting for a rimless 10g. Thanks for the suggestion.

Thinking about building my own 10g tank, anyone with experience/advice?

I really want a 10g rimless tank, but they're all extremely expensive in my area. I'm thinking a 10g isn't that big, so I'd be able to purchase the glass and make it myself for a lot cheaper. Also,...

General/carbon hardness (gH/kH) in water and how it affects cycling: some help?

For those that aren't aware or haven't used a kH/gH testing kit, the results are determined by the number of drops it takes to change the color of the water you're testing. kH goes from blue to...

My 40g hasn't cycled in 10 weeks, and now I'm pretty sure it's not going to .. ever

Background: I set up my tank in June of this year. It has not cycled at all; I've tested the water every day, so I know it hasn't. After a month of frustration, I was told that the low pH of my...

Would those not be aggressive toward my tiny tetras and guppies? Possibly my MTS? I thought cichlids + non-cichlid spieces was a no no.
