    In a 55 with mbuna, 2 groups of 6-7 each will work well. If it were my tank, with yellow labs I would go either Pseudotropheus Acei(yellow tail types) or Pseudotropheus Cyaneorhabdos(aka Maingano)....

    In a tank of that size, I would do 2 species of 1m/4f. There just isn't enough room long term to house larger groups and larger species. The rock work alone will take up a lot of the space. Yellow...

    There are some dimorphic(different colored gender) species. I will follow that by saying that a 50 gallon bowfront is too small for some, if it is a 36" tank, and realistically you should make it...

    Just my 2 cents here.

    Although I understand your scientific curiosity, I really don't think you stand to gain anything from this. Especially in the hobbiest part of aquariology. If you continue on...

    I would just remove the cartridge now and use the extra space for more bio media. If the cycling hasn't completed yet, it shouldn't hinder it too much, if at all. I don't think too much of the...

    Are you sure it's not a loose scale or scales? I've seen this on occasion on some of mine, and most times I've never seen any adverse affects. As far as being able to see the slime coat coming off, I...

    Here's the deal. Do a water change. Take a third of the bio media from your bigger tanks filter and put it in the small one. Replace the media in the larger with new. It will re-colonize pretty...

    I'm not familiar with the U3, but if you can, pull the media from that and stuff it into the AC with the media that came with it. Or maybe even add half to the Penguin and half to the AC. Then you...

    Plenty of good advice here. The first and foremost is PATIENCE! If I were you, I would drain completely, refill, and dose ammonia to 1 ppm. Wait for it to drop to 0(patience), and dose again. Keep...

    If you are close to a LFS, why not just pick up an HOB filter and put the media in there? Extra filtration can never really hurt. If you do, it's cycled instantly, and your fish will thank you for...
