You're heading in the right direction mate :)
At least now you know what you should be doing!
Keep doing water changes, and like the other suggested see if you can get some filter material from...

It looks good to me!
I've been toying with the idea to set up something over my tanks too, biggest thing for me would be changing my lighting as they'd be inside, I thought of a PVC pipe with the...
Did you do a filter clean after you had tested the water?
How did you clean the filter? What sort of filter have you got too by the way?
Just wondering if it's going through a mini cycle if...
Rue...No I don't :) I should have I know. I was also thinking about doing becoming a masseuse, so might give that a shot (I know hubby will appreciate me doing that one, lol) There's courses coming...
If it's turning red, I'd say the start of an infection of some sort.
Just a question, you do know how big these fish get don't you?
I was going to ask what size tank you've got, but in reality...
Your wife might appreciate the big muscles BeachBum ;)
I'm with Cliff, if it's stays at that, I wouldn't mess with it. Too hard to adjust and keep pH stable. I'd stick with what you've got. Fish will do better in a stable environment than one that is...
If you could post a photo of what it is would help. Also like Azure said, tank size, water parameters and what is your usual water change schedule?
If the water coming in is cold, I wouldn't bother :) It needs to be the same temp as the tank water before going into the tank.
I have 2 55G tanks and I have to bucket water for water changes too....
The bacteria you are adding in the starter stuff need bacteria to eat to survive :) So you either need to use fish, or forget the starter stuff and just buy some ammonia and use that and cycle it...
Have actually applied to go back to Uni. Going to try my hand at Paramedicine. Had alway wanted to do it, then got married had kids, got sitdetracked and never got around to it.
I'm not sure what's going on as a water change should not affect your cycle at all, unless you have high chlorine in it, but you said you used Prime, so that counters that. All the "good" stuff in...
Got two sparkling clean tanks now (well except for having just fed the oscar, lol)
Now to plan what to restock with!
Well I'm slowly getting there, trying to "find a new normal" Which sucks.
My 3yo son, on 3 Oct last year, climbed the gate to wave to the train, he was clipped, I revived him, called emergancy...
Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads that have it today! (we have Fathers day in September)
Dad's are very important and kids love them. So enjoy your day with you kids:1luvu:
They sure will Mith, they love them!
My sister in law has a pond which get the tadpoes in it, and you should see the goldies hanging around the froth waiting for them to hatch, it's feeding...
Do you know that sad thing Hobbs? That shop is where she did get her fish tank and first Oscar from!!! So now she has a 4ft tank with 2 oscars 5 silver dollars, a pearl gourami one black skirt tetra...

It does look amazing! But yup the price is a bit hard to get around, lol.
I switched from The Aqua+ to Prime with no problem, I even used the little that was left of the Aqua+ in one bucket and then used Prime for the rest of the tank, had no side effects. It is sooooo...

I don't know what I've done to the filters now, there is a slow leak, just a drip from around the seal on the canister. I've pulled it apart a couple of times to see if I can figure it out, but it...

Well another water change last night (well actually 1am this morning to be precise!) and another one this morning and the nitrates are back down to 10. Cleaned the filters out, yuck!!! The crap that...

Hmm, pH is actually something that I didn't check! Our water is pretty good, usually around 6.5. I very rarely even check pH in the normal course of things. I did't even check it yesterday I just...

I'll do the filters tomorrow, I'm dreading opening them I tell you! Apparently she only actually "removed" about 5 fish the rest just "disappeared" (so my guess is they just rotted away :scry: )...

We had to relocate for hubby's work for 6 months. Just got back. I didn't know what to do with the tanks while we were away, didn't want to give them to the petshop or anything like that as I knew...
