Blue Rams!

So I added some koi angels last month to my 120g. I'm not sure what went wrong but they all died. My tank is pretty well established and grossly under stocked at the moment. All I can think of is...

I have to say that black skirts that are healthy are just vibrant fish. They definitely have a brilliant pearlescence. They school really well too. When I got them to cycle the tank they were...

I think it also depends on how threatened they feel. My tetras often are dispersed throughout my 120 but then they'll suddenly all group themselves together. I assume that its often a result of...

120g Stocking Advice

Hey everyone! Been a while. I've been traveling almost every week for work this year which has made my 120g project very slow. Which, actually is probably for the best. I started off early this...

Thanks. I'm pretty worried about the tank while I'm gone. I started the tank on Monday and got a call Wednesday that I'd be gone. I'm actually hoping it gets delayed a week. We'll see.

I tried One & Only this week when I started up my tank and it worked as advertised. I tried one of the others once before and it didn't do anything that I could tell.

yeah that's no good. But I also don't want to just throw fish in the tank because that's even more disastrous .

I'll figure something out I guess.

Dr. Tim's is the same as Bio-Spira. That stuff has had too much success to be called "snake oil". There's no such thing as an instant cycle but if you have a tank full of fish already then it...
