Added the sand and filters to the 75g! X2 aqueon 75 are beast! They are truly monster filters. For sand I went with tahitian white moon sand. I love it
Still pretty cloudy but thank god for precycled media

Oh ok, i thought you had a 125 for some reason lol. Why not go SA cichlids? A giant JD, 2-3 green severums, a pictus catfish or syndontis petricola, and a convict pair or maybe a school of 15-20 T-barbs. Thats what im gonna do when i upgrade from this 20g planted to a 75 for christmas

I like that idea too but im aiming for a very sightly tank. I wanna see colors pop and fly basically

Ayi 10-30-2013 08:45 PM

During a WC I noticed a fin floating around. I saw that my betta had cuts and scrapes and later found out that it was his fin :( I don't think he'll make it because my mom doesn't want to spend any money on medicine and the cuts are pretty bad.
But I did water changes on all tanks. And fertilized the planted one.

Fishlover3578 10-30-2013 09:10 PM

I would put him byhimself and do daily WC on him like if your room temp is warm enough in a 1-2 gal bowl or larger if you can

I would put him in my QT but I have a bunch of yellow lab fry in there. I'll just keep my DT as my main focus.

cmwalters 10-30-2013 09:36 PM

Food, lights, flourish, and lots and lots of staring today. Also discovered my moms 10 gallon has planaria. I know they are harmless, but is there any way to get rid of them that doesn't involve lots of water changes because this tank is still cycling and i don't want to slow the cycle down.

Did WC 2 days ago and this morning I found dead ale and fry that were healthy other than slowed down a lil yesterday ... Only unhealthy fish in tank is my gourami. It he is improving and water tested good before I did water change other than ammonia at .25 ... I'm confused

Fishlover, i saw you in another thread about wanting GBRs, you have .25 ammonia right? That would kill them in a couple hours unless they were tank bred. Wait about 4 months and then you would be ready

Fishlover3578 10-31-2013 06:11 PM

What kind of fish is that

Fishlover3578 10-31-2013 06:15 PM

I decided against getting them... Just going to get a few more guppies and seperate male and female and give fry to my dad

Fishlover3578 10-31-2013 08:16 PM

Checked my dads tank his nitrate is down to 40 but he did lose another fish .... He doesn't seem to care much I keep telling him he needs to do more water changes ... Sigh he has two glo fish tetra 3 black neon 1 guppy and 2 zebra danio left... What is chance any will live... Originally his tanks nitrate was at 180 1st time I tested it a few days ago after he said his fish were dying off ...

cmwalters 10-31-2013 09:03 PM

40% water change in the 20 gallon. Much need maintenance on the aquaclear also. I removed the carbon as well as rinsed off the sponge and the detritus and algae off of the bioballs. Cleaned the glass and everything too. The tank had been put on the back burner the past week and a half due to a test and a presentation in my history of math class. It was looking rough!

The zebra danios and the glo lights should be fine. If the nitrates stay down the black neons should be okay too. Once the tank stabilizes I'd add 2 more black neons so they are happier. (Also- neons will school with neons. You could even add regular neon tetras and gold neon tetras and have a "mixed" school of neon tetras!) They like to be in groups. What size tank is your dads? Since you feel like he doesn't care much for his tank- a good idea may be to slowly begin doing the maintenance for it and caring for it. It could end up that he just lets you take over the tank completely!

I suggest doing a 50% pwc to get the nitrates closer to 20. Less nitrates is better for the fish and will also help keep algae from growing. :)

Bearchumjs 11-01-2013 12:05 PM

I fed the fish and turned on the lights. I am going to plan on doing a pwc and some maintenance on my 55 gal tank. I may rescape it. Not sure yet.

Fishlover3578 11-01-2013 04:13 PM

I would rather he be more responsible I have a 20gal 29gal and now 9 Betta at house I rent with friends to take care of

Fishlover3578 11-01-2013 04:15 PM

I finally figured out which Betta keeps being weird . A few times a day I will be in my room and hear him swim so fast maybe jump that I hear him ... So weird bot he is healthy and WC are good

Krissycakes 11-01-2013 05:22 PM

Turned on the lights and fed all my fish. Going to ship out some plants on Monday=)

Judt set it in so its closed up. From what i can see, i have 2 hitch hikers. A snail, and a small starfish. When i was letting them drip i found a nutibranch, intook him out. and the goby is swimming in the LR so its hard to get a pic

Delapool 11-01-2013 08:40 PM

Installed a new canister filter. It was the first time I had ever ordered anything so big through the post so I went for a cheaper version. Kind of regretted that a bit when I started filling the filter from the tank and couldn't get the hose valves to shut. The position of the hoses didn't help I guess. Anyways it's all set up and running fine.

Cleaned the fish tank and one of the rosy barbs got sucked into the gravel vac. Sigh. Got fish out and seems ok. I think it is a female and I don't have many so fingers crossed but swimming around well this morning.

Alan79 11-02-2013 04:08 AM

I'm really excited today.

My sister informed me yesterday that a 20G tank had come into the salvation army shop where she volunteers. I was going to be happy to get that for under $40. It was in good condition but dirty so i decided it was mine now if they would do that kind of deal. They were still opening up the shop so i kept hunting as i had previously noticed a 5G tank that i thought she hadn't mentioned.

By the time i had scoured the shop I had found.
- 2x20G tanks @ $5 each (1 ugly home made tank which i will maybe put inside a cabinet to hide the ugly corners)
- $20 flourescent light which fits directly over either 20G tank. I could have gotten the light for $10 with my sisters store discount but it's for charity and i thought it was already cheap so i paid happily.
- 2x matching 5G tanks. both dirty but with no chips.
- A bag containing 5kg of small river stone (costs about $16 at my LFS for 10kg) some activated carbon and filter fittings (which i have to learn how to use) plus $15-$30 worth of pre-made aquarium caves and tunnels.

I'll have to build stands to house my new collection. Not a bad days worth of shopping though. I have plans to set up a mini aquaponics system to grow strawberries and maybe something else sweet with one tank. I may convert my spare room into a fish room/greenhouse. It's good that i picked up the tanks cheaply because by the time i get my tanks planted, filtered, heated and supplied with fish it will get expensive. But it's nice to have extra options now. I will create a thread when i have a plan for my new equipment.

Bearchumjs 11-02-2013 02:51 PM

I cleaned up the 55 finally. I've been meaning to do it the last few days. I flipped over some of the rocks that had some algae, thinned the hornwort and removed a piece if driftwood. Cleaned the glass and all that too. The tank looks very pretty again and big meanie is happy to have more swimming room. :)

kjacks 11-02-2013 05:58 PM

Im running behind on all my maintence but i have topped off evaporation in my tanks and cleared out some dying plant pieces waiting for the new growth to come in .. i have several with new lil shoots sprouting :)

My moms tank is coming along well for the most part .. got her salt water test kit in and all levels are perfect so thats good.. ordering shipping bags to rehome the niger trigger and her chocolate chip starfish should be in this week..

Found out our local salt water store is under new management and is setting up shop again (didnt know it was even closed) and petco is also building a store so thatll give me 3 places to get supplies from without having to order online or drive 2+hrs ;)

Drip acclimated a school of 5 beckford's pencilfish and added them to the 20. They might put me a little overstocked, but I have a good water change regimen and have a back up plan i.e. mom's 10 gallon if things don't work out. They seem to be enjoying there new home. They love to play in the Christmas moss and lacy Java fern that are on one of my pieces of driftwood.

Well. First of all, my family got some live clams for dinner. So I thought I'd see if one would live in an aquarium environment. Haha. They're called cherry stones, or something like that. In aquaria, we call them cleaner clams. So it's acclimating nicely. I burped it, and it's now beginning to open.

Also, my land/water tank is coming along great. The whole land part is carpeted with different mosses. The water hasn't cleared up yet. I tested it though, and there's 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, and 25 nitrates. I did a water change and got that down to 5. Them I added two white clouds and the frog. The white clouds are happy and so is the frog. I'll get more white clouds later. At least a school of five. So here it is. The water is cloudy from the sand. I'll have to revamp filtration. water changes only cloud it more!

Saltwater. It's a cherry stone clam from the supermarket haha. It was almost dinner! :D It's around 20c for one. In aquariums it's called a cleaner clam, sold for $15! Apparently they reduce nitrates.

Nope they don't need specific lighting since they dig anyways. They just need a somewhat established tank that they can feed off of. I have sponges anyways so that won't be a problem. I'm not sure if they'll be fine without supplemental feeding. Id think they'd be okay.

My tank is 3 years old, is that mature enough? Looked online and said they polish water so yay!

I added 3 long finned leopard danios to my 35 gal hex tank. They were immediately friends with my other 3 leopard danios. :)

Again!! just sitting here enjoying my tank and I realized my newest addition which is a royal gramma that I got a few weeks ago,must have finally put a licking back on the 6 line because the tank now seems peaceful. The wrasse seems almost scared of the gramma now.

Did 50%ish WC on 20,and 29g tanks and got 3 killi fish males for trade in . I traded my biowheel 200 tht does 20-50g and my other liter that does 10-20g for them also switched zebra danio from 20g to 29 g and put all guppy fry I could into 20g

Brilliant_Barbs_21 11-04-2013 07:31 PM

Boring old, normal day. Topped off and did a 30% water change on all of my tanks.

Turned on lights, fed my fish. & Shipped out a plant package today.

Thinking of taking a loan out so I can make a pond on my grandparents farm. This should be interesting.

I almost got a pair of those Killies but ended up never pulling the trigger. Did a big change on the 125 and fed everyone. Picked up a lot of new fish yesterday and out them in there tanks

mickeymouse 11-04-2013 08:59 PM

Added a baby guppy with my 8 baby dalmation mollies :)

Fishlover3578 11-04-2013 09:00 PM

I think I got a good deal I got 3 males for my filter systems that are used and prob worth 25$ more or less . Starting to wonder if I should have got two female and one male... Will they be ok in20gal with 3 males ?

Was looking up info and saw something that says they are nearly threatened species ... Not sure what that means exactly
Looking online it says to keep 2 female per male but I also saw someone that keeps males only I a tank until breeding

Don't know much about them. But Killies can be a little aggressive with each other. They were $8 a piece at my lfs. The threatened status would be there population in the wild, which to my understanding most are captive bred in the trade. Start a new thread for better information
