  1. DIY
    Hi everyone! I am using a Red Sea Reefer 350 as my Planted Tank, with pressurized CO2. I had an inline atomizer connected to my return line from my sump. However, I ran into the typical issue with a ton of bubbles in my DT. I thought I would solve this problem by building a Cerges reactor and...

    Can the white dots be CO2 bubbles instead of Ich? I apologize in advance for the lack of pictures. I have a 90gal, CO2 injected, planted community tank. I bought 3 Irian Red Rainbows 3 weeks ago. (no quarantine at the time) I noticed they had lip rot and treated with MelaFix. That took care...
  3. Low Tech Forum
    Hey everyone, I've been seeing this bubbly foam surrounding the rim of the tank for a couple of weeks now. It goes away after doing a water change but reappears after a couple of days or so. I've attached a picture of what it looks like! Just wondering if it's harmful or a common appearance...
  4. Algae
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/sravr0q2yzgi1uz/DSC_0059.JPG?dl=0 It looks like normal brown algae, but it's not, I'm certain of that. The image doesn't really capture it, in reality it's darker brown and more like a mat. Almost like cyano, but the color is way off. It's brownish, but is more...

    Hey folks! I've been creeping on the forums for a while, but this is my inaugural post. Apologies in advance for failing at search (I did try!), but there's a ton of conflicting information or, at the least, different-enough answers for the same question that it was hard for me to conclude a...
  6. Substrate

    General Planted Tank Discussion
    I've been noticing these bubbles forming all along the waters edge of my tank a few hours after dosing one pump of Pfertz Micros. Has anyone else experienced this? Here is a picture:
  8. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    I'm having trouble growing a carpet foreground (even hairgrass wont grow) and think co2 is the issue. Here's some info on my set up: 180G I have a 500gph Eheim (pump only) running into a Cerges reactor and then splitting into two spray bar returns centered on the back middle of the tank...
  9. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Did a water change (5 gallons) about 4-5 days ago from my 20 gallon main tank, and topped off my 2.5 gallon mini with water left over from the change. Yesterday I started noticing bubbles developing on the waters surface which is normal, but these were big bubbles and they weren't going away...
