Although hydrogen peroxide has not proved as beneficial against bga as it is with bba. BGA can be dealt with by increasing flow to that area, manual removal, and increasing nitrates.

I've seen someone use UGFs with ADA, but they cordoned off an area for the UGF and filled it with filtration media. Then they put ADA on top of all of that.

You need to read up on the nitrogen cycle. Without anything in your tank, you are going to get any readings for ammonia and nitrite. The fact that you have nitrate readings means that your water is...

Cory cats are sensitive to medications. Why did you medicate, anyway? I would guess its the back to back moves coupled with medications (which are always harsh on fish).

There really isn't a need to adjust timing. Just set it to turn on 60 minutes before your lights come on and turn off around 30-60 minutes before lights go out. These are just ball park figures but...

While difficult, this is certainly possible. You have to just make sure they don't get lost or else they'll dry out. They got a good 60 feet of travel in them before they are toast. Excessive...

You definitely have a leak. I don't even know what size tank you have, but that co2 will certainly last more than three days. Should last over a month from the looks of your tank size. You need to...

I also agree with others, SAE. However, I wouldn't rely on them to clear those rocks which appear to be covered. I would just take the rocks out and treat them. Either pour some boiling water over...

Some good info, but be careful with the inch per gallon rule. It doesn't really hold much value when considering territorial issues, waste production, filtration, and what not.

I don't recall ever having moist ADA so I would be worried about that rather than the dry. ADA has a weird texture so I think it may get mistaken for wet. I don't know how "moist" your bags were,...

True. I was emphasizing the word "slightly" in the comment. That is, one needs to use more than a "slight" overdose.

Overdosing slightly is not going to help. You need to use spot treatment. I use 1 ml to 1 gallon of water, but that's not set in stone. Just depends on how much bba there is. Truthfully this is only...

I don't know what you mean by sprinkling ferts on the bottom. Do you mean you are using root tabs? Bury them deep and don't gravel vac that deep. I've disturbed tabs before with no ill effect.

There is an "adequate" level of co2 in wild water because it is constantly being cycled through and agitated. Plants that don't need much co2 can survive in slow moving, boggy areas. Additionally, a...
