are my tanks level enough?

I've got 5 tanks and only one of them is what I would consider "perfectly level". The others seem to be off a tiny bit and the bubble on the level is always between the black bars in the middle, but...

I'm trying to figure out where people get these big aquariums that are larger than the 210 (72X24X29). Do All Glass, Perfecto, or Oceanic make tanks bigger than the 210? I keep seeing these 7-ft...

I have found a 60" light fixture for my 60", 100 gallon aquarium. It is made by Perfecto. Am I gonna have a hard time finding the T-10 lights for that fixture?

My angelicus loaches "dance-fight" a lot. It is really a fun thing to watch. I have 3 of them and they change "dancing" partners. I've seen similar "dance-fighting" with Yo Yos, zebras and clown...

Good suggestions all. I'm gonna go with baking soda until I get a dehumidifier. I may get a small fan. I changed the water and it helped some, but I change the water a good bit. I know I overfeed...

I do 40% water changes every 3-4 days on 2 tanks and every 7-10 days on 2 tanks. I don't run carbon though, which I know could be an issue with odor. The room isn't well ventilated either, nor can...

I've never known clown loaches to hurt each other. Mostly playful nipping. The folks at loachesonline might have a better answer. They have helped me with loach-specific questions in the past.

I use pool filter sand and the intake is about 3" from the substrate. I like having intakes at different levels. Plus, cichlids spit sand all over the place.
