Absolutely agreed. Best dechlorinator on the planet, and one of the only tools a hobbyist should have under the tank in the cabinet. I also like their Purigen and Stability...
Have heard good...

Understood, Funk; thanks...

I have a 60 gallon (U.S.); not exactly small, but not massive either...I'm kinda happy with my HOBs, though...

Thank you; so, in the context of the topic of my thread, I CAN re-use these cartridges by rinsing them in removed tank water during basic maintenance (until they show signs of physically falling...

Hmmmmmm.....okay....so are you basically saying I would have to get a pH reading of my water in order to determine if the carbon is going to affect any kind of "leeching" process back into the...

Thank you for the prompt reply, funk...
So are you suggesting I can continue to rinse and dunk old cartridges over and over again to reuse them instead of constantly changing them out per the...

Sorry for the delay in getting back to everyone in this thread; I never received any notice (via email) that there were any...
I tried moving the bubble bars from against the back glass up some to...

Seasoned hobbyists will, of course, know the stringent rule when using one of Hagen's coveted "AquaClear" HOBs with regard to its media...that is, never throw away your sponge save if it's on its...

When viewing the tank head-on, I do not get ANY blockage of view; the film buildup is only when you look at the front pane from certain side angles in which you could see it on the inside of that...

Thank you, both, for the prompt reply!
So, could this be an indication of my tank becoming "mature" and somewhat healthy? Should I just leave the film alone? I don't want to put any cats or...

You can't see it when looking head-on at the front aquarium pane, but when I, say, go down the stairs that are adjacent to the area the tank is in and look through the side pane to view the front, I...

I posted the results from yesterday; what do you make of them? I'd like your input...

In my situation, though, with a fish-in cycle and boosting the tank with Stability, does it make sense that I didn't experience a bloom?
03-28-2013, 09:21 PM
Thank you, Hobbs...
Isn't a bloom or cloudy water -- in the very beginning of a setup at least -- indicative of the bio filter/cycle getting up and running, though?
03-28-2013, 07:15 PM
Thank You, Everyone!
So, is it advised at this point to continue running the API test for, say, another week just to pick up on a pattern?
My original intent with this thread was to figure out...

Indeed, Carap; test results posted...thanks.

I just don't want to lose any fish, as it was daunting and heartbreaking in the past -- regardless, here is what the battery of API tests I just ran came back as:
Ammonia: Perhaps 0.25? It's a bit...
03-28-2013, 03:45 AM
I'll try to get some test results up as soon as I can...
03-28-2013, 02:13 AM
I haven't done a recent test because the water looks so clean...
03-28-2013, 01:40 AM
Indeed, the fish are doing, believe it or not, just fine; fluorishing and growing and not showing signs of any stress...and I do indeed have the API Master Freshwater Kit for...
03-28-2013, 12:31 AM
And thank you, as always!
Indeed, I'm keeping an even stricter water change schedule over the past couple of days due to the fact my Black (now Gold) Moor seemed to have developed a...

My new Marineland 60 gallon goldfish setup has been running for well over a month now, dosed with Seachem Stability to kick-start the cycle, treated with Prime and then introduced with the four...

I had read that perhaps removing the bubble bar and adding some kind of tape to the area that sits beneath the filter intake to "block" the bubbles coming from that area could work...
Take it from someone who has taken the winding walk down this VERY long road with these bubble devices...
Look NO further than these:
