    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...

    I just got 6 flag fish for my 29 gallon, 2 males and 4 females, to take care of my hair algae problem and each day there is less and less algae. Unfortunately one of the males found a "cave" in the aquascape and now chases all the others away to the left side of the tank. Usually would...

    So. My journey into aquariums started with a vase. 2 years ago I set up a plant with it's roots in a vase of water, and I added scuds and daphnia to clean the greenwater and the root decay. Worked fairly well. Kept a terrestrial plant (a rose!) happy in water for > 6 months. Via a predictible...
