    Reason why I'm asking, is that I'm seeing a reddish tint to the water, and for this weekend's water change, I want to do a change, refill the tank, and then do a second change right afterwards. I...

    New snail won't move much in aquarium

    I just got a snail (don't recall the exact type) from Petsmart. It was about as large as any of the others in the tank, perhaps the diameter of a quarter. I put it into a 55 ga aquarium a week or so...

    Almost always, I can see no meat inside, and I soak them in some water for several days, which I would think, would disintegrate dead meat, so I would think (now that does get me into trouble...

    OK to keep shells of dead snails in aquarium?

    Is it bad for the aquarium, to keep the shells of dead snails in the aquarium water? After I see a dead one, I let it sit in a small cup of water for a while, then I throw out the water. But would...

  8. Problems with water level lower than heater minimum line?

    What problem would result if the water level drops below the minimum level indicated on my heaters?

    And just as important, is this a rule of "Don't ever let it get below this line, ever"? or is it...

    I now do it every 2 weeks. Usually it is 9 ga with 28 ga tank, and 15 with the 55 ga. The nearest sink is the kitchen sink.

    Two vacuum tube questions

    The vacuum tube that I've been using with water changes finally bit the dust. Tried to glue it back together with superglue, but that didn't work, so I need to buy a new one.

    I see the same model...

    Superglue/crazyglue for aquarium vaccum?

    I have a suction/vacuum that I use for my water changes. Using it yesterday, a plastic piece broke off from the long tube. I am wondering if there would be any harm in using crazy glue or something...

    That description certainly matches what we have here. We have a few ghost shrimp and some neon tetras. I suppose one of them died over the weekend.

    Thanks to you both. I'll clean it out today.

    OK, then I'll take it out then. I just didn't want to ruin the first time we've had babies in the tank, that's all. Thanks.
  16. Help me identify this mass in my aquarium: dessicated fish or eggs?

    Can you help me ID this mass in my aquarium? If it is a dead fish, it is too far gone for me to identify it as a dead fish; I'd rather not scoop it out if it is shrimp or fish eggs. I tried cropping,...

    I was more concerned about the fish (and the health of the water, because of the fish) than the curing process. This is a leak at the top of the aquarium (the black plastic trim around the upper...

    Hmmm well perhaps its not an algae issue for me, either. I was putting 2 and 2 together, assuming that whatever gunk that gathers in teh filter, was in fact algae.

    OK perhaps it is fish waste.
