Re: Shop Lights

Some think that blue lighting will encourage algae growth, but in my experience, it is debatable. The blue lighting sure adds a very pleasant effect to the tank, but it doesn't do much with respect...

Re: Shop Lights

A tank with just fish and some low light plants doesn't require as much lighting and will do fine with one or two Aqua Glo, Color Max or other similar lights.. One thing to keep in mind is that even...

Re: Alge eater

True Siamese Algae Eaters are excellent algae consumers and are far less sensitive to water conditions than the Otos.

Re: HELP i cant take the lid off my external filter

Is there any way you can re-attach the hoses to the filter, that way you can open the flow valve(s), lift the hoses straight up to let air in, therefore equalizing the vacuum you seem to be...

Re: South American Cichlids

It looks like your 20 Gallon is pretty much filled up already.... if that's where you're currently keeping your Ram. I would agree with Sharon, if it's a male, a few females will likely liven him up.

Thanks Dano. That tank is 60 gallons.

Yeah, i'm aware of the venomous nature of the foxface, but I also know that in most cases they get a very undeserving bad rep. My foxface is as mellow as they...

Re: New Wrasse

Dano,

There's no question that he is an angular flasher wrasse.... as far as lyretail and royal, those are some of the names i've seen for the angular, so I threw them out there for reference.

New Wrasse

So I picked up this guy at my local LFS the other day... well that isn't my picture, but mine is a near carbon copy of the one in the picture. It is an angular wrasse (aka, lyretail or Royal wrasse)....

Re: New tank

Even though your wet/dry will help process nitrates and decomposing fish waste, a Protein Skimmer is HIGHLY recommended as it will remove a great deal of the waste before it has a chance to break...

Re: Big tank, big problem!

There are 2 things algae need to survive: food and light. Cut out either one and you'll have an easier time getting rid of the algae.

Since you don't have a protein skimmer to remove excess...

Re: Is the beneficial bacteria dead by now?

It's only 10 gallons... there isn't much that I would recommend in such a small tank other than 1 fish... 2 tops. A neon dwarf gourami would do well in that set up.

Re: How Many Fish in 15 gallon/ 50lt

I've seen some setups that compensate for the lack of swimming space by putting a small pump to create some water flow, which will keep the fish moving as they hang in the current. Of course this...

Re: Is the beneficial bacteria dead by now?

Remember that goldfish in general prefer colder water, so you may not even need to run a heater.

Re: eggbound female??this sounds stupid

Just be careful that it isn't something like dropsy, which can make the fish look very bloated and pregnant-like. The tell-tale sign would be the scales sticking out. Hopefully this is not the case.

Fish are always hungry. It is a natural instinct to eat as much as possible whenever food is available. This works out in the wild, but in the controlled environment of a fish tank, over-feeding...

Re: Canopy for my 20gal tank

A solution could also be air circulation... if you can manage to get some airflow between the water and the canopy, it could prevent it from collecting moisture. I know some companies sell clip-on...
