So I checked my water parameters today, and my tank specs were perfect. did a WC and I now have 3 figure 8 puffers swimming happily around.

Yea, I'm just a little disappointed. When i saw nitrites and nitrates by day 2, I thought I was on easy street, but I guess not.

The nitrites are reading 5ppm. Ammonia is hitting 0 by each morning and i redose to between 1-2 ppm

I set up an 80g and planted some blue filter material from an established filter on a running 40g into my 2 canister filters I have running. I had nitrites and nitrates by the second day.

So I started cycling my new new (used) 80g this previous Tuesday and i placed in a good chunk of media from one of my established tanks into one of my two canister filters i have running.

I had actually tried getting something similar in the past, I think an Aqueon 50 footer, but the connection would not hook up to any of my faucets, it was quite disappointing.
I just got a new...

Just bought an 80g from a guy on Craigslist that will be the future home of at least 2 green spotted puffers.
He told me that he previously had the tank set up as a saltwater system, now here is...
So I've been eying getting a new tank for a while to house a fahaka puffer, and I came across a tank on craigslist that's 72x22x18. The guy says it comes with a stand, sand, rocks, and a filter,...

So I'm thinking about getting a 125 gallon or bigger soon and getting a Fahaka Puffer. But knowing that these guys require 50% changes each week this seems like an incredibly time consuming task...
The LFS near me has one that's the store pet, and another lady at Petco told me about owning hers. I love how bizarre it looks and it's really aggressive nature. I've watched videos of hairy...
I currently live in Houston and am about to get a 2nd tank and then also get a Hairy Puffer (tetradon baileyi). But....the biggest issue I'm having is just finding one of these guys. Anyone know of...
The title pretty much sums it up. Do I need to add/replace any materials to this filter to keep it running my tank healthily? I've noticed on the inside of my intake tube there is a brownish...

So after the past couple months and some unexpected trials along the way, my 40g long community tank is stocked as follows:
5 Sunset Platys
5 Black Kuhli Loaches
5 X-ray tetras
2 Blue Platys
My water is stabilized now. Had another guppy randomly die, looked like he got nipped to death by my other fish, my one lone guppy is still going strong now though. :/
I'll def hold off on...
I rinsed out the filter media on my small Aqueon 200 filter for the first time in a bucket of tank water as I was changing the water. I also have an aqueon 70 that's been running on my tank for a...
Additionally, I tested my waters again and suddenly ammonia is at like .5?!? What the heck is going on? My tank is cycled, why can't it process this ammonia. This was after a 30% water change as...
My little guppy died, the white patch on his body had spread rather quickly, and it looked like he had a small red mark on his belly in the midst of the white patch.
He went from fine last night...
I don't have a QT tank, I have a Blue Gourami that is interested in new fish after they are added, but he usually calms down after a day or two. I haven't actually seen the gourami bite anyone yet,...
Okay, after holding vial to white background, its def 0 ammonia, sorry for the mis communication. Also upon further examination of the guppy, it almost looks like he might have gotten bit or picked...
I just did about a 30% water change, I'll do another test in a while and hold up the vial to a white background and then go from there. The lighting in my apt. isn't the best so I'll go to a better...
I tested the water again for ammonia and i'm pretty sure it's 0, i'm just having a really hard time distinguishing between the slightest bits of green/yellow
Notice this little guy was being quite lethargic this morning after I fed, he seemed to have his left fin a bit frayed and had this white patch on him as well. I think I was able to attach the...

I've checked the water parameters about every other day and i had 0 ammonia/0 nitrite. I'm doing my first water change with fish today as well. I've tried to not go overboard with stocking but my g/f...

I would still be interested in getting a ram or possibly a pair. Anyone think that would work too?
08-11-2012, 02:25 PM
I have a 40 g light-moderately planted tank with an aqueon 200 and aquaclear 70 filters on it. My tank just still seems really emPty with the following fish
1 blue gourami
5 sunset platys
