Do you put 2 drops of solution and nothing more?
I don't knbow the kit you're using, but, I think, for most of the kits you have to put 2 drops of sol. in some water; this mix goes in your small...

You need just a little more patience...
The bacteria that forms nitrites are developing in the first stage of cycling. The other type of bacteria that eats nitrites and forms nitrates develops in a...
[QUOTE=gcnadam29] If my floor isnt level can i just put slivers of wood to level out my tank? [QUOTE]
Or you can use adjustable legs to level your cabinet. The most important is that your floor...
That's the way to go. Building your own equippment gives the best satisfaction. I've built miself the stand for my 110 gal.
1. Make it solid enough to support ten times the weight of your tank.

Right. Canisters are the best.
But you are talking about green water, and for this I would recommend:
1. Turn off the lights, for few days. If the tank is in a lighted place, then use something to...
These are Ceratopteris, or Watersprite; They grow very fast, I mean VERY fast, in any light, no special conditions needed. You could also use Water Lettuce, and there are some other plants that can...
In your case, the best way would be to use some floating plants like I have - see attached pic. I even have angels in the tank, and some fry are escaping from being eaten, just hiding in the plants.
Let's see if I can give you some answers...
2 ft. means 24 in. or about 61 cm.; 50 l. means 13.2 gal.
Ohh... wasn't that the question... lol!
You cleaned thoroughly the tank... I hope you...
I don't think it will harm your fish. But you will have to anchor it down, somehow, I believe you will never make it sink, though, this is a very light type of wood.
[QUOTE=hobbs]It's annoying really. You could put a switch right on the cord but finding the cord would be interesting when it looks behind your aquariums like it does behind your computer. :)
I'm using that kind of polyester wool that comes in sheets; I am a tailor, and we are using this as interlining for the overcoats. The filter wool costs too much over here, and the poly wool I'm...
holbritter, you're half way through! You will see the light on the end of the tunnel when both ammonia and nitrites drop to 0.
About water changes, I wouldn't do over 40-50% at a time. Better to...
Sorry. My post was also ment for greyb. My fault, didn't mention whom I'm talking to... Seems HE wants to lower the Gh ("I would like to bring down the hardness", he said), and I do not understand...
But, why do you think you need to lower the Gh? How many deg. shows your test, as innacurate as it is? Maybe you don't even need to.
For what I know, from the fish you have, the discus and the...
Not that I am a very experienced aquarist, but I had learned a few things (mainly from mistakes), and I want to share these things.
What kind of sand? Could be the sand that's containing some carbonates - this raises the ph.
And you need a bit more pacience; the flakes need time to decay, that's why you don't get so soon the...
Hmm... I think it's the other way. I mean viceversa.
The UGF only does biological. The canister can do all.
Sure, one could use them like that, but the canisters have enough space for media, they...
Is the heater in the correct position? I mean, the water level is over the mark? Is the heater in the full current of water?
I noticed a thing: I have 2 different heaters, a cheap one, from China,...
Here is my aquarium:
About 3 month ago, I went hiking on the mountains, because I needed a piece of wood for my new tank, and found this big root, in a mountain stream: gee, why did I made the tank...
I'm sorry for your loss!
For many of us, our fishes are almost like a family member.
Bicarbonate of sodium is, indeed, baking soda. Carefull, though, some manufacturers are adding some starch - this is ok for making bread, but this will make the mixture too foamy, and the foam will...
Beware of UGF's!!!
Indeed, most of the UGF's have no means for mechanical or chemical filtration; some have small cartridges with carbon.
But they are EXCELLENT in biological filtration.
I've had same problem: I mean not the mouse drinking from the tank, but, I also fought with some strange illness I couldn't identify. Tried different meds without success.
Problem is, that you...
Do not change the water completely! Only, let's say, half of it maximum, once a week. I hope you're not washing the bowl, gravel and decorations (I've heared so many new aquarists doing that when...
If I may drop in, donb,
Instead of Pleco why don't you consider the Ancitrus sp.?
The Plecostomus sp. (there are 400+ species), cold grow very large, well over 15 in, and, many of them, are not...
