Fed and watched everything. Now that I'm down to just my male bolivian ram,and they're so hard to find in my area, I'm thinking of a rescape. Removing a large fake log, had it for the female to stake out a territory, moving 'his' root decor in the center and getting more dw. Also want to up my school of sterbial cories from 3 to 6.

Came home from vacation and my fish were all alive!!! But my African tank was mistaken with my small "planted tank" and was on for .. Lets just say a lot because the person watching out for them worked a lot of hours. They were both on for a lot of hours per day but anyway, my African tank was brown, brown Algea everywhere.

My other tank is fine and my water wisteria Is taking off!!!!!! And I mean taking off, spreading roots everywhere. But my green terror is starting to get a little more territorial I see with tailless...getting worried.

Yeah water wisteria is great for replanting trimmings. One of my stalks is at the top of the tank and working it's way back down to the bottom. Gotta trim and replant.

Checked my water again this morning there are still traces of ammonia did another 30% water change. Now I really hope things are better, I don't understand why I got the spike since nothing had changed and all the fish seem perfect

OMG Where did you get the metaframes? They must be very old as I thought they quit making them years ago. I would love to have my old ones back from the 60's as they would make great nostalgia tanks. Anybody have a good old metaframe 10 or 15g they would like to sell?? Great looking tanks! OS.

Thank you. Yes, they are from the 50's-60's. I got them from ebay. The five gallon leaked and I was so upset. There are three options that I found to fix them. The simplest was to fill them with hot water, and sometimes they reseal. I tried it and it worked!

Well I WILL be scoping E bay. What would REALLY be awesome is to find one with the old stainless steel metal light hood. Thanks. OS.

There have been three. One sold , a ten gal with full hood for $100.00. The five gallons seem to be what everyone wants for some reason. I got in a bidding war with someone on this one, and the other five gallon went just as high. It is important that the seller at least leak tests it, to me anyway. There is one seller with several and he plainly states not leak tested. No one even bids on them. This 5 gal one was also 'leak tested' though,. and it leaked when it arrived. The 2.5 gal has not leaked.
