Plenty of answers already for buddha so I won't chime in more till more questions are asked.
@ Jim, maybe it'll be good for you to start your own thread but I'll just answer a few.
If the type...
I'd use Safe or Prime to keep the parameters in check. Do an 80% or more W/C. Keep a close eye on the parameters daily and if possible, do daily large W/C. But that might be hard considering it's a...
Keep a stable pH for your own tank and aim for fishes that do well in high pH. This way it'll be a win for you and your fishes. You won't have to worry about messing up the pH and the fishes will be...

Quikrete Quickwall should be a good cement for you if you wish to build on a wall in the back of the tank along with foam/liverock.
Exactly what kind of SW tank are you doing, reef, FOWLR, or...

Which kind of Quikrete did you use?

What is the Root made of? Can you easily cut through it? If you try for a bit and feel that the bond can't be broken, try to cut through the root instead.
If you're really intent on using the 140,...
Planted discus tank with community dither fishes and some inverts, :hmm3grin2orange: .
It's an oxymoron. :hmm3grin2orange:
If you feel like reading a bunch of calculations I did a long time ago, here you go:
1) Comparison of Cloram X vs Safe (post #18 onward):...
If there is enough space, you can run the old and new filter together.
If not, just move all media over to the new filter. Just keep an eye on the water parameters. But I don't think it'll be a...
No one will yell at you because obviously; you've done the right thing to keep them happy and healthy.
So long as the tank is setup correctly and everything is in balance, you can lengthen the...
Ditto on the Seachem Matrix. I use that or Biohome Media.
Ich doesn't exist all the time but fishes at a LFS usually harbor unseen pathogens (ich being one of them) and if conditions are right; they will take control.
Overstocking and compatibility...

As the great Jack Wattley once said or something along the line, "There's no place for salt in a discus tank!"
There's simply no need for continuous salt bath because you should really only use...
Although it's possible for discus to spawn in a tank with other fishes; the chances of any fry surviving is none.
Your best bet would be to find a best pair and set up a breeding tank for them....
Day 1 - Full dose
Day 3 - 50% water change (replace back same percentage of Prazi)
Day 10 - 70% water change (full dose) vacuum the substrate thoroughly during water change
Day 17 - 70%...

Some of us daily, :hmm3grin2orange: .
Right, and the problem is; sometimes the medication can't go through all that layers of substrate. Even if it did, the concentration won't be strong enough to kill it or kill all of them. That's one...
Now, as you many know, most of the fish parasites that we encounter regularly are protozoans and generally speaking; they don't require an intermediate host to reproduce.
This would mean that...

What's your tank stocking and are you overfeeding? How big is the water change percentage wise? 3 weeks is kind of a long stretch if the tank isn't under stocked and no overfeeding.
You read my mind, Jenn. I was thinking the same but not sure if he wanted to go through all of that after setting it up all this time. I tried recommending that before but not many would follow...

Suction is fine for me because I do own that combo. The question is how often do you change the water and clean the filter itself. What's your filtration media? Do you clean the area inside the Rena...
It's metronidazole. You can get it stand alone or in combo with other medication.
I have it by itself and with General Cure (Metro and Prazi combined).
Yes, only dose again if you are changing water with the same percentage as the amount of water taken out. Prazi doesn't degrade in water like other medication so once a week would be fine.
This is for your case only.
General preventive can be done with 1 week if nothing seems unusual. 5-7 days is not enough for certain type of parasites. Let's say flukes for example.
