Ich. *Sigh* The "donated" fish... two came in with ich. So I go and remove the carbon filter from the cascade filter to start treating for ich and...
Sooo.... Anybody have any idea what...

Why is there such a varied discrepancy between schooling size recommendations? One LFS says at least three. One says at least five. I've heard six here just above, and seven and ten...

Apparently a five-attachment limit. That's sensible.
Four of these, about 1.5-2", schooling when threatened, but lately just spread across the tank
And this one (again, not the best...

Right then. I need to get a scraper. The glass is getting... not algae... but reddish/brown stuff. After substantial research (I spent all morning with a microscope and a few other things), it's all...

Nobody bothered to tell me that my associate had installed one of his old filters as the second filter in my pump and this is what resulted in the sudden drop of everything ammonia and...

In the morning, perhaps, if I can find the battery charger for my camera or get the cell phone a stable image. I should really stop toying with experimental ROMs. :\
Right now I am way overdue for...

Good info on the lily. Is the green plant likely the same?
Also, while I have strips, I also have a master kit. I've been comparing the test kit results to the strip results each time. I've even...

I guess the question is "How much nitrate?". The test kit's lowest color compare is 20 PPM. Upon reading nitrates on tap water, there's not a lick of color. On tank water, it shows a very, very pale...

Nitrates are not high enough to register on any of the tests I've done yet. :\ So technically "Less than a hint of color" or "Less than 20PPM"

The good news: I know how to do DIY stuff, woodworking, metalworking, etc.
The bad news: I live in an apartment and have no tools T^T
The other good news: The cats now have a "Fish TV" cat tree...

This is almost as much stress as when I first took over the tank at work. -.-;
72% water change.
Ammonia down to ~0.25 PPM (Testing drops color chart doesn't show below 0.5, but was...

Mystery of the four-hour death solved. Fatal birth complications. O.o
One fry did make it though.

Some folks got a little overzealous. While I was away for a while, they invaded my house and set up an aquarium for me. @.@
I spent yesterday and this morning trying to figure out what...
The end of the story...
Admin pulled the plug on the Aquarium due to tampering and distraction. Distraction because there are classes in the library the aquarium is in and students prefer to...
125 Gallon with a Magnum 350 canister filter. I've been told in the prior thread that the 350 gph is Not Enough for this size tank.
And suddenly, after so much luck, chaos has struck. O.o In the...
Good day, all!
One month after the http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aquariumforum/showthread.php?t=114552 post, and here is the status and some further requests for learned advice...
I guess the main concerns about floating plants are twofold:
1: How much above-water is there with floating plants? If I need to reduce the water level to accommodate them, I need to know. There is...
Unfortunately we are PTAless. Currently every fundraising activity we have goes toward the $500,000 medical bill that a student's baby sibling will face soon as an example. "Oh, and...
Did not change filter media, it's still happy-looking. All of the cleaning has just involved scraping algae off the tank, and that was all eaten by the fish for the most part. Would the green haze...
Our worst offenders either can't read that (K-2) or don't care (Grumpy 7-8th graders).

As a school, we have 500' rolls of 50" wide colored paper, so getting 6' of it and trimming it to size was no problem. Then... Scotch tape. :D
Then... The algae. ... I scraped the front and...
Okay, peeking back.
Just take the tank home.
Apartment living does not allow for fish tanks over 5g due to the catastrophic badness of 1000 lbs of water in an apartment.

Thank you very much to everybody who has replied so far. ^.^
Heater turned to 78, it will take at least all of today and possibly tomorrow to drop to that.
Clarification on "work": The tank is...
Not easy to get vinegar here. I may need to try water alone first, and see if I can find something very clean to use with it. I specced out Plexiglas and found that thick enough of it for the top of...
I guess the first question would be a safe way to clean the front outside of the aquarium. I understand Windex and other cleaners are likely to be unsafe if even just a tiny bit gets up and into it,...
