    Thanks for the reply

    When changing the water today I noticed that I haven't been going deep enough into the substrate with the vac. Pulled plenty of waste out. Hopefully my levels will go back...

    Fin Rot (?) Troubles

    Hi,

    I seem to have reoccurring trouble with fin rot (or something) in the fancier guppies. Here's the best pic I could get:

    Oh yeah... API Master Test Kit only does Ph (high and low range), Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate levels. What do you all use for testing water hardness if not the strips?

    Right now I use both test strips (Jungle 5 in 1) and the API Master Test Kit. They are usually very close to each other. Water chemistry is an interesting thing. Some people seem to have a very easy...

    Ok... I'm going to take a stab at it.

    Gh (general hardness), Dh (German Degrees of hardness) and (dGh) degrees of general hardness are all the same thing = the mineral hardness (dissolved...

    Hi, I'm a newbie so I checked AqAdvisor. It says you will need higher filtration capacity and that the range of Ph requirements between the different species is too wide. Well, here:

    Great, thanks!
  9. Apple Snail Feeding... what NOT to feed?

    Short question:

    What veggies should I NOT put in the tank. I tried celery and cabbage and, man, it REALLY stank the tank! Seems to me that if it did that than maybe it would affect the chemistry...
  10. Ph and changes and well water, oh my!

    Good morning (here) all!

    As I've been testing water coming from the tap, I'm fairly sure that the Ph of our well water changes depending on local precipitation. This could just be my imagination,...

    Oh and fair warning.... in a few weeks/months you're probably going to turn that 13 gallon tank into a quarantine tank and get a 30+ gallon ;)

    Mu-ha-ha! Start saving up.

    Yeah, I was surprised to find out that water "softeners" don't really make the water soft as far as fish are concerned, they just, like you said, reduce the likelihood of scale deposits. I read an...
