My clown loaches are over 10 years old. I think closer to 15. I have to go back on some forums to get an exact date. One of my angels are also about the same age.

Here in the Chicago area, I can find them for about $2 - $3 from discus breeders, who get them from the wild. I think they just buy them in bulk from lotsofish.com (about $1 each). I actually...

I also recommend keeping about 50% or more of the water. This makes the acclimation of fish easier. Basically, the more water you save, the better. So all you would need to do is just setup the...

This is what I would suggest as well. Keep the old water from your old place. After you move, perform smaller WC weekly with your new tap water, which would help acclimate the fish to your new...

I haven't seen it yet, but so far, the 2nd one looks better. The first hulk did look too animated. And Edward Norton does play a better character.

Not really a new topic. There's a few people here that have low tech tanks with ZERO WC and just do water top-offs. There's even a topic or 2 on it.

You could do it, but as stated earlier, why would you? Doing so would just get your filter dirty faster, requiring more cleaning. Filter floss can become expensive to keep replacing.

As far as I know, cardinals are usually wild caught. They come from more acidic, softer waters. So once your LPS/LPS receive them, they are very stressed from the shipment. Then of course, they...
