  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I am setting up a (loose) wild betta biotope and would like an invert to help clean up waste. (Currently bladder snail waste, but soon it will be betta waste.) I know that CRS can take the lower PH, but maybe not the higher temperature. Any experience keeping inverts in these conditions?
  2. Tank Journals
    Warning: long post ahead but i would really appreciate the help! I store a couple of bottled water in our freezer, wash it once it’s frozen, and hang it inside my aquarium to keep the tank cool. Since I live in a tropical country, and we have no centralized AC in the area of my aquarium, tank...
  3. Fish
    I am thinking about starting a patio pond (20+ gallons) with plants and a small school of WCMM (though I'm open to suggestions). In the summer, my area has lows/highs of about 68F/88F. I want to know whether 88F during the day will be too hot for the minnows. I would bring the pond indoors...
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    What's everyone's preferred temperature for keeping and breeding Caridina (mixed bees?) What about Neocaridina (Bloody Mary?) In the late summer my temperatures were going to high for them, so I removed the heaters, however now that winter is here the temps are dropping pretty low. It's an old...

    I'm wondering if SAEs could tolerate living in a discus tank; mainly because the tank is kept around 82 or 83 degrees (F). The tank is a moderately planted 125g and contains 8 discus. I love SAEs and keep several in my 30g and 75g, but both of those tanks are kept around 78 to 79 degrees for...
  6. Low Tech Forum
    Hi All, This is my 1st post here. I am new to planted tanks, I have set up a tank in previous month. This was a 3 gallon dirted tank with sand in top layer. Plants are monte carlo, camomba sp, Rotala roundofolia and dwarf Sag. Lights: LED bulb 5 watts. I was using sugar-yeast CO2 at 1-1.5...
  7. Planted Nano Tanks
    I love Red Root Floaters, but have read that they can be sensitive to temperature changes. My low tech 5 gallon nano tank does fluctuate in temperature from 68 to 80 degrees (but it usually stays between 74 to 78), and so far all my other plants and creatures have been fine with it. I'm looking...
  8. Low Tech Forum
    Hey guys, My boyfriend and I just started a 65 gallon tank, we filled it with water and dechlorinated it. day 2 we added colony, and day 3 we added rinsed fluorite and plants. We went to get some CO2 injection for our plants and we added it the same day we added the plants. day 5 now and...
  9. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I've yet to actually put shrimp in my tank yet, its still cycling. I haven't decided whether I want to use a heater or not. From what I've read, both of the species I want to get (RCS and Celestial Pearl Danio) can pretty well tolerate temperatures between 65-70. I have a heater that came with...

    I am looking to get a new 50 watt heater. I noticed Elive has come out with a line of heaters, they seemed pretty nice. Anyone have any experience with the?
  11. Lighting
    Hello All, I am wondering what color temperatures are used to mimic sunrise and sunset. All I have been able to find is that sunrise tends to be a little lower, maybe 5500K? While full sunlight is around 6700K. Anyone have any experience manually inputting color varying color temps...
  12. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    It's summer, and it's getting hotter. This is the first year I've had a shrimp tank, so I'm not sure how my shrimp will fare in this heat. The tank goes upwards of 86 degrees F during the hottest part of the day. I've taken to putting a fan beside it (I used a footstool to position the fan so...
  13. Algae
    hey there!! I want to ask if you would be able to help me out with some results I got from my experiment? It is studying the effect of temperature on the rate of photosynthesis of algae. I only need to know if they make sense :) I am calculating the rate of photosynthesis by measuring the...

    What do PFTers do to keep cool on hot days like today and yesterday, when the temp is 85+ outside? I saw my tanks jump to 84 that's cuz it's in my attic an I had the window closed, but my 20gal on the second floor was at 82 my ceiling fan was on so I think that helped a little. Question is how...
  17. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have a good amount of Ramshorn/MTS snails in a 10G heavily planted tank. Recently, last day or so, most seem to just be laying on their side not moving, moving a very little, or just sitting still. Current inhabitants are RCS (adults, Juvs, Babies), Assassin Snails (Adults, Juvies, Eggs), MTS...
  18. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hello, Could you please offer some advice? I’ve just finished setting up my first planted tank. The tank is 100g (450 litres) and the only way to fill it was slowly using a hose pipe. The trouble is the water was coming out at 38.5 °C. It’s middle of summer here in Dubai and even our cold...
  19. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I have been working, reading and learning about planted tanks for some time now and one of the things that I really have not seen as much information about is water temperature. I, for a while, had my old planted tanks at 80 degrees, because I thought that it made for a more natural environment...

    Can Anubias do well in a unheated room temperature tank? My fear is it might not like the cold, @ home the room temp will drop to 12c (53f) for most of the time during winter. plan setup for 100G 6ft barebottom show fancy goldfish.
