    Don't Want to Lose All My Good Bacteria!

    Cleaning the filter every week is not just fine.... Not cleaning the tank does not inhibit the good bacteria, practically speaking.

    You won't lose any of your bacteria (or fish for that...

    Don't Want to Lose All My Good Bacteria!

    Yeah, I think the biggest mistake people make is that they get too involved and try too hard. It can be quite counterproductive...especially over cleaning. Let nature do what she does - in a new...

    It is good but the law of diminishing returns applies - there's a point at which the extra media space doesn't do more than stretch the time between filter cleanings.

    Honestly, you're making this...

    Don't Want to Lose All My Good Bacteria!

    Agreed on all counts.

    An ac110 could work on a 29, stuffed full of media and set on the lowest flow setting.... but like was said it's way overkill. Shame on whoever stocks a 29 and needs the...

    Not to rain on your parade, but I think it's much more interesting in theory than practice.

    Unfortunately that's something that you'll most likely have to deal with when keeping fish. Someone else can do everything wrong and the fish stay alive, and you can do everything right and have...

    Yes that's a superficial way to look at it - more food means more bacteria. I think it's highly unlikely that the system is as linear as you are assuming, though.

    It's really no different than...

    I think adding another filter can increase the size of the bacteria colony, thereby making it "stronger". Think of it this way - if your family eats more than they need, then they can accommodate...

    Tank temperature has nothing to do with weather in a temperature controlled living space :-)

    Agreed 100%. Thought I had posted that very message yesterday but obviously never hit send...

    My tanks are unheated - they get into the low 80s in the summer and low to mid 70s in the winter. If you are still looking at discus, then it would probably be a good idea to stick to fish that do...

    Yeah that is just for the mid and top swimming fish. For the bottom you can get Corys and loaches. I wouldn't get less than 10 of either. Botia loaches are highly social fish that develop complex...

    You'll know soon after you put 20 in whether or not you'll want more. I think a school of 30 plus a couple of schools of 15 would look nice.

    I was thinking more like 50 - a 125 is a big tank and they are small fish. The nice thing is that you can always get more, so 25-30 is a great place to start.

    Regarding adjusting the flow rate - a more drastic and permanent measure is to break off one or two of the impeller fins. That will lower the full flow rate.

    Maybe everything really does happen for a reason

    The biomaxs are both the same - te smaller is what comes with the smaller aquaclear filters.



    That's all I use as well.

    I also use fluvals ceramic prefilters as the first stage of filtration...

    If you want to be assured that you won't have breeding fish then you either have to be diligent about removing eggs and fry (you'll know when they lay eggs) or keep only one. 3 is not a good number...

    I've done that very thing - I now have fewer tanks, but they are larger tanks. I got rid of a 55 and a 75 to make room for one of my 125s. I'm sure that you will be much happier that way, because a...

    Angels in a 46g bowfront community?

    That tank should be plenty big for a breeding pair of angels to coexist with other fish, if that is in fact what you want. Not everyone wants their fish breeding. If you want a pair, best thing to...

    Scared cherry barb?

    Barbs are not like guppies - they don't need 1m:2f. What they need is an actual school, like slaphappy mentioned. Sex ratios are only "important" in groups that are too small. In a school of 10+...
