    Well, talldutchie, I really did glance at shellies when you posted this and they just did not impress me. So I moved on.

    Not sure what has changed now... but I now find multies and brevis...
  2. I verified my pH results on water that had been...

    I verified my pH results on water that had been sitting 24 hours. Still 7.8 or higher.

    So, I'm thinking that this, combined with not wanting a planted or tinted tank, are really steered towards...

    Okay, here are my results at the new house.

    Kh 16
    Gh 19
    Ph after water sitting one week is 8.2+
    Comes out of the tap at 7.2

    Thanks, GronLaura. (You sent me an email earlier with pics of your canopy.)

    I'd just feel a lot better having it over concrete. We are having to rip up so much of the floor right now that I...
  5. I've had a very slow day at work today, so I've...

    I've had a very slow day at work today, so I've used it to go go through a lot of the older threads, mainly in fish diseases. I sorted them by posts as I have figured out very quickly that one with...
  6. Test arrived today so I'll get to test this...

    Test arrived today so I'll get to test this weekend. Did a practice run on my water here. KH was 16 and GH was 20, so, yes, certainly high water here.
  7. Still waiting on that test kit to come in. I had...

    Still waiting on that test kit to come in. I had a pH kit with all my pool testing supplies.

    Oh, I'd love to go salt water. Just don't think I could afford it.
  9. Well, pH may not be as high as I thought it was. ...

    Well, pH may not be as high as I thought it was. Straight out of the tap was reading 7.1 - 7.2. I filled up a container and will repeat the rest tomorrow after it has sat overnight to see if there...
  10. Correction.

    Correction.
  11. If your tap water is 0 (or under 10) and is...

    If your tap water is 0 (or under 10) and is testing that way, have you tried mixing the tap water 50/50 with your tap water to see if you can get a different result than the 160+? You could even mix...

    Thanks longshot. The house is actually an original mobile home that has two slab additions attached. Thankfully, only the original section of house has required much repair. The slab section is...

    I have ordered a hardness test kit. I'll try to remember to bring my pool test kit out to the other house to test the pH. No sense in doing a lot of planning based on what I *think* my water will...

    Just wanted to say that I really like your tank. Rocks and fake plants are what I would like to go with and you have a great showpiece using them. (Having 6 kitties in my house, I think I also need...

    I don't know, I'm kind of fond of clown puke gravel!

    Actually, I have a feeling that will be one of the hardest things for me - to choose how to decorate the tank. Although I appreciate the work...
  16. Yes, my tank size seems to be growing the more I...

    Yes, my tank size seems to be growing the more I read. We only have 5g and 10g available here. I knew that I didn't want smaller than a 29g, but still thought that was a decent sized tank. But now...

    And abbreviations! Really allows me to identify with those that were new to the pool forums who had trouble understanding what we were saying or asking. I always kept a link to the abbreviations...
  18. I've been reading more and it really strikes me...

    I've been reading more and it really strikes me as funny as to how much some of this parallels my pool forum. We always stressed not to necessarily trust the pool store as they were often just in it...
  19. Certainly. I plan on testing the water soon to...

    Certainly. I plan on testing the water soon to get an idea of exactly where it stands.

    I found out my grandfather bred the neon tetras. He did that got a few years but got out of when the water...

    I wouldn't have any interest in breeding them. I guess maybe that speaks to his skill level? Sure wish I would have known this while he was alive. I never ever saw a photo of a fish tank at their...

    Just found out something very cool. I told my father about my plans and found out that a long time ago my grandfather (deceased) was well known in his area as a tropical fish breeder. He...

    We are doing the reno ourselves, so I have lots of time. A lot of the house is down to studs and rafters! Only getting to work on it on the weekends really stretches things out. In fact, I should...

    I have to test the water at the new location, but I am sure it will be similar to what I have here, with the wells being just a few miles apart. It will be hard water for certain.

    With our...

    Thanks everyone. I am the type who downloads product manuals before buying them and just generally does tons of research beforehand. Kind of similar to measure twice, cut once.
  25. Thanks. Yes, I have read on cycling and know I...

    Thanks. Yes, I have read on cycling and know I would want to do it fishless. I'll need to refer back to links when I actually start the process, but I feel like I have a pretty good feel for it.
