    Normally the solution to the sort of aggression you're seeing in schooling fish is to increase the size of the school. 3 is too small. 6 is the minimum number that people typically mention,...

    It's a good compromise temperature for the current and future stock. It's on the high end for the pleco but acceptable, on the middle/low end for the loaches, etc.

    One thing I noticed in all of the photos you linked is that there is a single piece of wood that dominates the hardscape of the tank. I agree that it's a good look but the issue for me is that I am...

    I moved the pleco first. I have never dealt with a more laid back fish. It didn't even try to get away when I slid the net underneath it. It thrashed a little bit when I lifted it out of the...

    The tank seems to be holding steady right around 80 degrees, so maybe the calibration on the heaters is off a tad. I'd like to see both heaters cycling on and off, indicating that they're holding a...

    pH came back 7.8, just like all my other water. I'm doing a large water change now anyhow, just to hopefully get rid of any crud leftover from the construction process. I'm not using the venturi on...

    unfortunately it's fairly cold in my basement, so I have that working against me. On the plus side acrylic is supposed to be better at retaining heat than glass, so I've got that working for me.

    I don't expect the flow will be CONTROLLED by the media, just reduced somewhat by it. I've got 1.5" diameter pipes dumping into 12"x12" trays. There should be no difficulty in getting the flow...
