Not sure about your supplier, but I know that many cardinals are wild caught, and therefore require parameters that more closely reflect their natural habitat. While most fish are very adaptable to...
Okay, thanks for confirming.
I will look into PraziPro - there is no rush on the QT time.
I have had some fish in a QT tank for about 2 weeks now, and I feel they are ready to be introduced into the main community tank.
I use the same tap water and dechlorinator to fill and perform...
Thanks - my cat likes watching the tank more than I do!
That's kind of what I figured with the Neons, so thanks for confirming.
I know the tank is stocked lightly (there's actually a 20 gallon...
I have a 65 gallon with 25 Neon Tetras, 4 Otos, and a Betta.
I was hoping the Betta would provide the semi-aggressive, but non life threatening, presence necessary to make the Neons nervous enough...
Yeah, I know. I will probably just keep them on for now, until I may need a quarantine tank or something. We'll se how much my electric bill changes next month and they may be out sooner. Just...
Okay, so I removed the filter floss in the far right baffle and that seems to have fixed the problem.
Now all compartments are completely level when everything is up and running - even better than...
Okay, so I have my first issue with the new sump.
When I first set it up, I marked the levels that each compartment should be at when things are running right and won't overflow if the pump should...
Yeah - I had them from when I used to just own the 20 Long.
Filled them up with Bio Max for some extra biological filtration. Other than that, the only filtration is Pond Filter Sponge and Filter...
I wanted to thank everyone that helped me along the way with this sump.thumbs2:
I just finished adding water and everything checks out! :19: No leaking anywhere and everything is working as it...
How would you connect these parts?
I have a Marineland Corner-Flo aquarium with an internal pre-drilled gravity overflow.
See attached image. Do I put PVC "glue" cement on the bulkheads? I...
This rapid feedback is awesome!
Okay next question:
In the hypothetical situation that the overflow becomes clogged or somehow stops overflowing and the pump is still running, how can I protect...
Got it. Thanks for the tips on valves, guys.
Attached is a picture of what the tubing I got looks like.
Thanks for the tips, Cliff. I actually stumbled across your plumbing write-up while doing some googling and found it very informative. I will have to spend some time with the other article you...
I have started to build my first sump. See attached image of the plans.
Main tank is 65 gallons with a drilled overflow and return. Sump is a 20 gallon long.
So far, I have only siliconed the...

I have a 65 gallon aquarium with dimensions 36"x18"x24" (LxWxH).
Since the aquarium is so tall, I am having trouble deciding what type of lighting to choose.
I want the tank to be low-tech...

See attached picture. I need to get silicone on the part of the picture in red, but the gun won't fit between the baffles.
I am making a refugium where the baffles are about an inch apart from...
Okay, so did a little research and kind of answered my own question.
The two 15W lamps on either side of the AC20 on the back wouldn't work. They are about a 1/4" too big.
So, going with the...
Do you think the two 15 watt JBJ lamps would fit on the back along with the AC20 filter?
Same question for the dual 6 watt T5 fixture. Would it still fit centered over the tank with the AC20?
Which should I choose? Please follow the links to see details.
Dual 6 Watt T5 11-inch Fixture
Do you think the 11" size will be a problem on a 12" cube? Will there be enough wattage?
Out of curiosity, what makes cube tanks difficult to light? What are some pitfalls that I should avoid?
Thanks for the quick reply!
I suppose I am not against other "less sleek" lighting options that would improve the overall health of the system and plants.
Any other options?
Can you suggest specific "clip-on" or "open-top" lighting options (fixture and bulb) that would be ideal for this setup?
12" cube nano freshwater aquarium. (~7.5 gallons)
"Festivum for the rest of 'em"
Can you do that while the filters are running?
