    I posted in the general forum a day ago but didn't really get any help unfortunately. I figured maybe someone here would know more. I've had this 55g moderately planted tank with 2WPG and DIY co2 for over a year now. Recently I started seeing these little white balls floating on the surface of...

    I've had this 55g moderately planted tank with 2WPG and DIY co2 for over a year now. Recently I started seeing this little white balls floating on the surface of the tank. :confused1: They seem to clump together, all on the surface with nothing below it that I can see. Anyone have any idea what...

    I was thinking about setting up the Dwarf Lily in a small dirt tank and trimming any leaves that start growing towards the surface. Would this plant do fine if I just grew it on gravel though, or does it require a rich substrate? I've read that Banana plants grow into a much larger lily if...

    Just curious if there are any underwater "flowers" I think it would be interesting. I know some floating lilly pad types have flowers. Would like to those species as well!

    Hi All- I have an issue feeding floating freeze dried foods like daphnia, tubiflex, and bloodworms or even brine shrimp. The food floats on the top where my bettas eat it all and the other fish like tetras or badis that like to roam on the middle and bottom don't see it or get to it. Any...

    I have had 2 angelfish for about 3 months now, in with my CO2. They are the Hagen ones, with the ladder (two of them) about a week ago I got a glass diffuser in the mail and hooked them both up to that-it works great. But now my angelfish seem to like to hang out in the bubbles and get high...

    So I've got three black kuhli loaches, and one of them is ill. He is "stuck" to the surface of the water, just kind of dangling there until another fish bumps him, and then he'll try really hard to swim down, but just floats back up. I know these fish can swallow air and absorb oxygen through...

    I have a 10g tank planted with Salvinia minima and Duckweed (which grows slower than the Salvinia, suprisingly) and there is white mold growing around the leaf edges and on the hairs of the Salvinia. Is there any way to get rid of this stuff and keep it from coming back? So far, all I've been...
