  3. WTB/RAOK
    As some of you may know, I hate throwing things away; I'd much rather give the item to someone that could use it. So with that in mind, I'd like to give away a bag of Eheim Substrat Pro. When I set up my Eheim canister filter, I decided to use Seachem Matrix instead of the Substrat Pro that is...

    I'm looking for K1 Micro, not K1 standard size, but no LFS carries it near me. Does anyone know of an online retailer that ships in the U.S.? I know that I can buy it straight from Evolution Aqua but then I have to pay international shipping.

    Hey guys, I've decided to jump into the salt section of the hobby and go brackish. I have tons of media that I've used to help jump start other freshwater cycles before, but not sure if it would work for brackish. The fish I want requires a low gravity (1.005-1.008), so the salinity isn't...

I have several in foam in an HOB, 5 planters using hydroton expanded clay media, and 2 trellis rafts (no media needed).

    Hi guys, I've been looking for solution on how to remove silicates from water, as my tap water is very high on silicates causing big trouble with diatoms permanently. In my search I've found that the anion resin (DI resin) is very good to do the job. I only have found that this resin is used...

    I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience replacing (or partially replacing) internal filter media (which is usually sponge) with any loose ceramic media or similar? I know that there are some internal filters out there which have specialised media made specifically for those filters...

    I'm thinking of getting a fluval 55g *(or a corner bow front) in the near future. I am a fan of heavily planted tanks (like my nanos' 5.5/12g) So far i have been using rock substrate. I was thinking of using blasting media for the 55g tank. For doing a low tech setup should i be using dirt...

    I started a new tank just over a month ago. It's a 46 gallon tank that I added treated water and water from my 65 gallon tank to. My 65 gallon tank is heavily planted and has been great for years with no problems. My new tank is also heavily planted and I have gradually been adding fish. I just...

    I have two 2215 filter and I remember reading somewhere that it's recommended that you replace 50% or so of the bio media (ehfisubstrat/pro) every year or every so often. I was wondering what's the reason behind this. Is it only because the pores of the media get clogged up or is there another...
