    It pays to be prepared!

    I returned home from an extended shopping/errand trip to find the filter on my 20 barely flowing and the waterfall heavy and glopping. I had recently cleaned that filter and had replaced the sponge,...

    An algae pellet eventually softens and disintegrates, and tiny flecks of it float freely in the current, and gradually sink to the substrate. I wouldn't worry about your shrimp not getting any. The...

    With a vinyl strip along the back of most lids, modification to accommodate the mouth of the filter box and intake tube of an Aquaclear is fairly easy. Just measure the length and width of the...

    I curl up with my favorite reading material, an intriguing, fast-clipped whodunit, and have fun trying to correctly guess the culprit.
