I love you all!!!
im going to give it a try and report later. I believe it wont be an issue. Especially is people are practicing this method. I bought the snake because i was sick of buckets....
quick question i would like some feedback on. When i do my water changes i pre mix my stress coat with water in buckets then add them to the thank. I was wondering if i could/would cause stress or...
I just lost two tb's :( weird. They've been in the SA tank for over a year. Also, my Notatus just laid eggs. I'm not going to try n raise them but how exciting. So, as far as stock!? If I don't add...
I'm currently having this issue with two H. Notatus Severums. When the tank light is off there's no issue. even during the day (living room well lit) I see the sevs and geo swimming together and...
Ive tried keeping angels with some different SA CA cichlids and it didnt go so well.. Ive seen it done with the more peaceful SA/CA cichlids like sevs and rainbow cichlids, however, it didnt work for...
Hey there. Its been a while since ive posted and wanted to update everyone on my 125...
As of now I have two H. Notatus Severums, one Brasiliensis GEO and a rainbow cichlid. 6 TB's and 3 c....
RAMS are a delicate species.. along with specific water parameters i would suggest a stable environment. Meaning, a tank thats been established for a year PLUS.. this is simply a suggestion, however,...
In my experience it all trial and error in the cichlid world as far as compatibily is concerned. I keep south and central American cichlids too! SA/CA cichlids can get large, even convicts. (unless...
Agreed with odd mix... However, up until this point I haven't had any aggression issues with either the convicts or the savlins towards any of the others. I do understand that the angels, rainbows...

I just took all the old carbon out of my filters. Both the canisters and the HOB's. I order another container of BIOMAX. I love the ceramic rings. A filter stuffed with those guys and filter sponges...

Hey folks, it's been a few months since I've posted. So feels good to be writing. Anyway, I'm here to ask about carbon (if used) and ceramic rings. When should these items be replaced in filters?...

lady hobbs, that wasn't a practice i was accustomed to. If it was electrical its possible the seals could have been fried out by a heater plugged in running out of water??
Yikes... Thanks for...

Thx CountryLovin4evr. I appreciate the idea, i'm always looking for ideas and alternitives to keep the brain wheel going. I really want to be sure i KNOW what happened. Obviously because we've got a...

Thank you lady hobbs i will reasearch that. This is very strange the whole way around. Wouldn't i have to be grounded in order to actually feel the shock? When i was pulling my casualties out of the...

I did thank you and it doesn't.
In fact the water conditioner that i use normally does. i don't really attribute this is the conditioner, although you can never be too sure.
This is just...

Thank you. This as is another probable source. The bacteria infection. I also misspoke. I didn't assume it was faulty. However, after a good look at the heater I cannot see broken glass.
09-15-2011, 03:58 PM
You've never heard of a broken heater? So, are you saying that its not possible? I appreciate the input..
No, the fish weren't acting fine up until their death. They were clearly stressing out. I...

Ladys and gentle man i woke a day ago to tank full of dead fish who were COVERED in mucous and convulsing! OMG what a terrible day..
After trouble shooting and double checking h20 parameters with...
No one is trying to criticise you. sorry you felt that way. The problem is that they're "not all happy" like you say. The issue is that south american and african cichlids have WAYYY different water...

You know what I should do also. I should test using another/different kit ... I suppose its possible the kit is bunk or giving wacked results...
suppose its an option. Still, even if the results...

I couldn't agree more. That's what i don't understand. I believe this gunky looking stuff has something to do with the ammonia spike. something caused it. This is so strang i just don't understand....

Of course the tank is cycled. I don't have the ut-most experience, however, i'm not an amateur Its been established for a year and a half.
I did a water change of 50% and checked it again in four...
