    Getting 44 gallon brutes, and mix boiling water not an option? I've found that 1 gallon of boiling water will raise the temp of 55F of 4 gallons of water to close to 65f. Or putting heaters into the...

    Try completely close the valve at the airline tubing, and then open it once the water is out. It reminds me of the maxijet powerheads that I have.

    Using driftwood and peat to drop the ph is a bit more complicated, simply because KH (carbonate hardness) or buffering capacity can stop the PH from dropping at all. We'll get to that after the fish...

    Let your tap water sit out for 24 hours (preferably with a bubbler) and then test the PH. This will be the true PH of your tap.

    You can do a larger change than 30% with that difference in PH. The swing of that much won't hurt fish when dealing with PH levels above 6 and below 9 (there's a study on it). Also, the changes in...

    Lugubris pikes can be extremely aggressive, particularly with fish that look similar. They will kill fish, and literally grab their fins when showing aggression.
