    Same thing as seeding new filter media with gravel from an established tank. I use pure nylon for that. I just don't like that fine a mesh for my ceramic beads. They initially come in a wider...

    Great idea, if I knew the dyes they use to color those bags wouldn't leach out into the water. Also, I would want to thoroughly wash and sterilize fruit bags, in case there is pesticide or other...

    Is any of your media in the filter box blocking the water flow? I try to lay my bead bags in so that they completely clear the sides of the box, so as not to hinder the flow of water that comes into...

    Thanks, Mommy1.

    I'll be getting some new bags ASAP. I notice the ones my LFSs (both of them) sell are a much finer mesh -- more like screen instead of netting.

    I may look into what Foster &...

    When I cleaned my filters the other day, one of the mesh bags containing ceramic beads broke in the bucket of tank water, and I don't have an extra mesh bag to put them into. I think it would be okay...

    You can try rosy barbs and / or rosy (fathead) minnows. Both are schooling fish, and you probably shouldn't have more than four or five of the barbs in a 40-gal. I have seven in my 65.

    If you want substrate plants that goldies won't eat, try Anubias. Just be sure you don't bury the rhizome in the substrate. You can attach Anubias to rocks or decor using invisible fishing line, or...

    Just to be safe, it pays to have a second filter as a backup, on standby, in case your main filter stops one day and you can't get it going again.

    What do those special prefilters look like? What...

    Here in the north Idaho panhandle, one would think folks would learn how to drive safely on icy and snowy roads in winter. Still, they just don't seem to slow down. I see these little rabbit-hutch...

    Lovely flowers! Do deer normally eat them? What USDA zone do they grow in? Where I live, it's considered Zone 5, but we have micro-climates that can bring it down to as cold as Zone 4 and sometimes...

    I assume your next stand will be solid wood and not particle board?

    I'm guessing the OP is wondering why the pH declined so drastically from 7.0 down to 6.4 in such a short time. A neutral tank has suddenly become more acidic, and I think this is what's troubling the...

    Even with stores that quarantine new stock before putting it up for sale, something sometimes slips through that wasn't showing symptoms during quarantine.
