Thanks for the posts - hopefully somebody else chimes in just to get another opinion and all!
I just worry about the dead spots - but I think those filters might be okay - and as you said - I...
Truth - would there being any advantages to a powerhead other than eliminating deadspots?
--Such as keeping some of the bioload off the floor?
--Would either of my fish like it more?
I posted a few days ago about my eventual plans to upgrade to a 75 gallon tank - with a HOB AquaClear 110 and a Canister Fluval 406.
Would anybody know if I would have deadspots with this setup? ...
Fair enough - as was said a few posts ago my filter is underpowered for this size most likely - but I understand that this is not a filtering problem. By 'cloud' the water I just meant they wil...
Nobody has commented on my question regarding my current filter.
Regardless of water changes and such - is my Fluval 205 appropriate for this tank size and load?
Alright alright - you guys convinced me :-p - should I increase the frequency of changes - 2x a week or just increase the amount 1x a week? Probably 2x just to keep a handle on the waste.
This is a beautiful tank Dutchie!
Can I ask what you did to the background of your tank? I'm a huge fan of that it really adds a lot of character.
Water clarity isn't an issue - that's why I haven't really increased my changes at all. It's mostly just the waste hanging around the bottom that can be kicked up and cause cloudy water (for a few...
...totally just replied a nice long post and it didn't post...lol.
Instead of a sponge could I perhaps fashion a sleeve out of maybe a filter media bag? Would this cause my tank to become even...
I may be moving in the coming months - depending on whether I get a job I've interviewed for - so I'll finally have the room for the larger tank I want. I'm looking at a 75 or 55 gallon tank for my ...

I'm looking into the larger tank for for sure.
I'll up the water change and see how it seems - as you said - It can't hurt anything!
Thanks again :)

Thanks for the responses everyone!
I have never seen a recomendation of 50% a week or twice a week - I'll up mine a few more gallons for now. But I've never had any problems either so I'm...

They are a decent size - maybe 4-5 inches long from nose to tail. I've also read they can reach 12 inches - they don't tell you that at the pet store when you're 18 and buying a fish...haha

Thanks for the response!
There are plenty of hiding places for the Betta and they've never even demonstrated the slightest interest in him! I can't even find him half of the time! But I suppose it...

Just stumbled across this forum today as I've been having some trouble with my tank mates.
I've had an established tank for a while now - it has one Betta, Common Pleco and TWO Pink Kissing...
