Maybe you know a tip somebody else does not know this is a general post so for example if you put vinegar on a rock you have found you will know whether it fizzs or not that It is aquarium safe if it does not fizz and unsafe if it does fix this can save a fortune instead of buying store purchased rocks
Post your tips and tricks guys

Don't buy fish if you don't know what they are

Do plenty of research before you bring that cool fish or pretty plant/coral home.

If you have extra money, purchase a battery powered air pump

Post your Tips and Tricks

Taking a spare power head attach an unused sock with a rubberband to the outlet and and piping about 5" to the inlet. You have your own small portable water vac, do it once a week in my dead spots.

Note: must submerse power head and tubing. Adjust pipe to depth of tank.

I would say the heater would use too much power to be able to run for long at all and the potential hazard of leaking but you never know hopefully somebody knows
