    I've got a newly setup cichlid tank. Saw this brown thing yesterday. So I did a water change, trimmed dead leaves and wiped it off from the glass? Is it still present in the water column? Is it bad for my fish and plants?

  12. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hi all, A while back I made a post about algae issues in my 10g planted tank (Help with Algae Bloom). One of the issues discovered was that my tank had high levels of phosphate (5-10ppm). That was 5 months ago. Since then Ive done a revamp of the tank because most plants were just covered in...

    Hi guys! First post here so im gonna apologize for the long post. Just recently we upgraded our 55 gallon to a 150 gallon. We kept the cycle by moving gravel and didn’t add any new fish for a couple weeks. Water parameters have been consistently great since an initial ammonia spike. Wasn't...

    I have just experienced sudden, rapid plant growth these last few days. These plants are growing like weeds and managed to grow almost a quarter to a half of my 75 gallon tank in just four days. However, I also noticed that green dust algae and thread/string algae started popping up. Could this...

    I set up a new 30 gallon about 2 months ago and it's been going pretty well, most plants are doing really well and have grown incredibly fast in the last few weeks.
