  1. How to create gentle circulation with power heads?

    I have a internal filter/powerhead that does 45 gallons per hour. The flow, however is rather harsh on the plants.
    Have you guys found any power heads rated less than 45 gpm? Or any power heads with...

    I was mistaken. I know in the wild it takes decades for damaged areas of coral to recover. But I did not know different coral grows at different rates, or that they breed in different ways. I can see...

    Seen any long term reef aquaria?

    Do you guys know of any reef aquariums that have been maintained long enough to allow coral to 'grow' a natural reef? That would be very cool, but I would think extremely difficult, considering the...
  4. Are there different subspecies of harlequin rasboras?

    6 months ago I bought 5 harlequin rasboras. I've had a hard time adding more because the ones in the fish stores look significantly different.
    Mine are a golden orange. The ones in the stores have...

    Slow release foods not working?

    We plan to take a week's vacation, and we tested out one of those slow release food blocks. We did not feed the fish and left two blocks in the tank for two days. Except for the corys, none of the...

    I do believe the piggies are females (no offense meant, I think females eat aggressively to build eggs) and they are plumper than the others, but they are still graceful when they haven't eaten....
  7. A few fish overeat, the rest don't eat enough!

    I have a small school of harlequin rasboros and neons. A few of these fish really pig out during feedings, they wind up looking like good year blimps, like their stomachs are going to explode. Most...

    why only occasionally? Do mysis shrimp make fish fat? I heard that since they had shells, the shells would act like fiber for human, help their digestion.

    Mysis shrimp or krill for tetra food?

    I'm looking for a substitute for frozen daphnia. They are too small, and some of my tetras simply don't like them. The blood worms are a little too big. Would Mysis shrimp or krill be the right size...

    Pad is not working. Guess have to try to get a micron pad off the internet.
    Nitrates are low. Reducing light to 10 hours a day. Don't know about phosphates, have been putting in root tabs regularly,...

    Been a couple of days, hasn't worked yet. How long should it take? I'm thinking of ordering 100 micron cloth off the internet.

    I got this stuff called 'polishing cloth' from fluval. It doesn't have a micron rating but I assume it it must be similar, anyways the only thing the fish shop had. Will run it over night see how it...
  13. How to get these fine particles out of my tank water?

    My tank water looks clear, but under close examination under bright light there are still lots of tiny particle floating around. I've been cleaning the glass regularly to get rid of young hair algae,...

    T5 Colormax bulb not good?

    I have a T4 Colormax bulb, it gives off a pinkish glow. I've read that it has a K down around 4000. Since this is in the red spectrum, does it promote the same algae as incandescent lights do? Also...

    Are they better than incandescent as far as heat? My incandescent bulbs are like little ovens. These twin T5s SEEM to be a little better, but the difference is not as obvious as I hoped.

    T5 bulbs a bit hot?

    I am switching over to fluorescent bulbs because incandescent bulbs are too hot. I bought a coralife T5 dual lamp, and found it was hotter than I hoped. What gives? Also should I leave on the acrylic...

    I've read somewhere that 10000k bulbs encourage the growth of blue green algae. I thought the lower spectrum 4000- encouraged algae because those are red wavelengths

    I do only a 10% water change at a time, and I don't bother with warming the new water to the same temperature as the tank water because I figure that small amount won't bother the fish. I've read...

    Fish like filter cleaning?

    My fish tend to get more active during water change, but I noticed that they get even more active and cheerful after I wash my filter media (in tank water of course). Have any of you noticed the same...

    Are 10000 k lights okay for plants?

    I've read that the best lights for plants are 5500 to 7500 k. But I am thinking of getting a fixture that sells with a combo of 1 plant bulb and 1 10000k bulb.
    I heard the 10000 k bulb is great for...

    I do remember I used to put a big corner filter filled with fresh activated carbon in a five gallon bucket of tap water, and after twenty four hours the chloramine did go down significantly.

    I've taken my carbon out of the system for awhile. My plants are growing slowly, and I think I'd better do whatever I can to safely boost their growth so I can minimize filtration (eventually). I...

    Thank you. Yes I remember now, chloramine is made by combining chlorine with ammonia, which makes it nastier and longer lasting than chlorine.
    It is odd, now that my tank is balanced, when I test...
  25. After treated chloramine breaks down into what?

    We have chloramines in our area (orange county, ca) so we have a tough time of it. When treated I heard choramines break down into some form of ammonia. It's probably not a lot of it, but it seems...
