It will get here someday. I just found out my order from fosters and smith was sent from WI to MS and I live in TN lol. They sent it by FedEx to Mississippi and then is is getting sent by postal service from there back up to me. Seems like a waste to me

So I'm noticing live aquaria is saying some of the fish I want will jump out of my tank. So I really wanted to leave my tank open any suggestions?

Ok so I checked and my ammonia looks like 0 nitrite 0 and nitrate 20

I just don't get I done a 4 gallon change then next day a 4 gallon change and my nitrates haven't changed

Ok from what I have read the API kit reads 4.4 higher than other test kits so do I divide it? So instead of 20 its like 4.5

I've got a oily skim on top of my water. Should I aim the power head up to agitate the surface a little. As of now the film is spiraling a little with current

Agitate the surface more.

I would aim it down at the area below your heater. That's where your diatomes are forming. Low flow area.
