Fish survey post

Hello fish people, I'd like to more objectively answer some common questions in the hobby such as,

- What's causing algae growth?
- Why are my nitrates so high?
- Is my lighting enough?

So, I started a form to collect data that we can all share and learn from. If you'd like to participate, please fill out the survey for each of your tanks (i.e. one survey per tank, you don't have to do all of them but more certainly helps) and you can include tanks you've owned in the past. I think this could help all of us and if you have other things you think would be good to add on the survey, please do not hesitate to suggest it. Thanks!

MODERATOR EDIT: Unless you can show (prove) to me what you're collecting and how you plan to use the data, you can't share your own links like this on the forum. Feel free to PM me to resolve. Otherwise, it's a no-go. We abide by EU data protection laws and also want to protect users in other countries.

This thread is locked until resolved.

Welcome to the forum! Sad to say that I am unable to get anywhere with this questionnaire. I keep anywhere between 7 and 12 aquariums at any given time. And most aquariums I own run a combination of lighting and you have to choose one type in each question or cannot continue. Add to that most of mine are both highly planted and low tech, which is not an option. I could not get off the first page.

Thanks Blue ridge! This is my first time posting but have referenced the site for other info. Sorry if it was not clear but each survey should be for one tank hence the part about including as many tanks as you'd like. I set it up this way so we can learn about individual setups and thought aggregating might muddle results.

I did your survey but did not answer how planted my tank is because the choices did not support my tank. Anyway I am curious about the results.

Yep I couldn’t answer correctly because there is no option for heavily planted low tech.

Unfortunately I cant properly answer as I have 7 tanks- then half a dozen 1 gallons for fry or live food (also planted, etc)..... so the questions are not relevant enough. So I picked ONE of my tanks to answer... but data will be skewed.

Giving back creates a virtuous cycle that makes everyone more successful (as long as they cycle!)
7 Tanks and counting..... plus all these critters to feed critters
