I’m late to the party, but if you didn’t get rid of your tank gravel vac about a quarter to third of the tank and do a 25-30 percent water change, then do it again in a couple days moving on to the...

I’m wondering if the Melafix is slowing down the growth of your bacterial colony. It’s supposedly a mild antibiotic. I’d keep up with the water changes, cut back on the feedings or feeding amount by...

Acrylic would probably be a poor choice if you want the option of draining one side. Silicone caulk doesn't do well with plastics, having pressure on one side and not on the other is an invitation...

I'm still wondering, is there a reason you don't have your return line output at or very near the surface of your main tank? If the return is at or near the surface, or even if you put a small...

I'm trying to visualize your setup. I assume you must be planning to have your return line output well below the surface of your tank. I'd think any time you add a mechanical or electrical element...

I like leaving air on all the time. They create circulation so the co2 can get to the surface and blow off, which is every bit as important as adding o2, and help circulate the water to the filter as...

I've never had a problem with fish in. I can't understand how anyone loses fish unless they start with touchy fish, put too many in, or feed them like they're taking a food challenge. Size of...

That's the "why" I am wondering about? Where I lived, if it hit 89-92 in the afternoon, you'd have nearly 89-92 degree rain hitting the ground shortly thereafter. Maybe it's different where corys...

I think Kenny's up in the Bay Area. He's in Daly City, wherever that is. I'm in Oregon and am hot to trot to set up a discus tank and pick up fish from him.
