    So I am running a 55 gallon planted aquaruim with a sump and internal overflow box. I just added CO2 to my system, but am finding the design of my system with the overflow box in the center created split water circulation patterns (see pictures). So the CO2 from the diffuser only circulates on...

    So around July 22nd, I was having issues with one of my frogs, and long story short, someone at my LFS told me it was because my water was too soft (yes he was wrong, but I was desperate to help the little guy). I had been using RO water from a different LFS, without remineralizing, as I had no...

    I was wondering if anyone has had experience with Tropica's CO2 system for smaller tanks? I have a 15gal and was wondering if it would be a viable option. I have a few concerns though. 1) I would have to manually turn it on/off, which I might forget to do and mess it up, anything I could "add"...

    Hello, I just got 3 otos for my 15g, as well as 3 amanos. It currently has 3 ADFs (African Dwarf Frogs). I drip acclimated the amanos and put them in, which I read was fine, but nobody has given me a clear answer on whether these otos need to be in QT tank. Currently they are in a small temp...
  10. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hello, So my tank has been set up for about 5-6 weeks and based on the advice of my LFS, I am using RO water. I just wanted to add that my LFS guy is very knowledgeable and has some amazing tanks, so I trust him, I would say. However, he failed to mention anything about remineralizing RO water...

    So I just got 4 baby ADFs (African Dwarf Frogs, NOT CLAWED) in my planted 15g, and I can already tell that feeding them is going to cause some mess -- I'm using frozen blood worm cubes, and those get everywhere. I don't want to have to pick individual worms out of the substrate/gravel vacuum...
