I wish I would have kept my old nano 240 for a test now. I wonder if coring thru the blades or reshaping the blade could serve a purpose.

Sounds like a build up in pressure some where to me as well. Can you post a pic of your setup. Once the solenoid is off, all the gas after that should be released. Somewhere in your setup it's not...

One week is not enough time for settle in. Not many plants will kick in after only a week of setup. For a new setup, stop rescaping it. Let the tank settle. The worse thing you can do is keep...

They should appear fairly round. Note that the females are always bigger than the males. The males are slender but should show a decent belly. Another way is to look for the stand of poo. A healthy...
