    Does anyone mind if I'm a bit lost, not that I've lost a bit of my mind, not that anyone would mind if I lost my mind, but I'm trying to mind my own, do you mind?

    Shouldn't be a problem

    I would think that as long as the hum was consistent, it shouldn't really be a problem. I mean, people adjust to living next to the railroad tracks and major highways! If anything, the slight hum...

    Sounds like

    The "dill" sounds like cabomba, which should thrive as a floater or planted. But I understand the frustrations, as I share them.

    Cover up

    To cover the gaps in the seams of your plywood skin, use corner molding. You can also use similar trim around the top to give it a fancier, more finished look.

    I agree about not staining. You...

    Use an ice chest

    When I moved once 8 years ago, I put all the fish from a 29 and two 10s into a large ice chest. I just rinsed it well, wiped it out with a towel, and siphon water out of the tank into it. The move...

    Whew!!

    Thanks guys. I really needed to hear that. Maybe I'll go get an oto tomorrow and let him be the first occupant in the tank. I like those little guys anyway.

    Alien growth in new tank

    I'm setting up a 29g in my bedroom. I bought a used tank, cleaned it thoroughly and set it up. I had a piece of driftwood that I used years ago in a previous tank but has been in dry storage for at...

    Fishless Cycle with Plants

    I've been reading and reading, but still haven't found the answer, so I'm just gonna ask.

    I have a 29g that I set up a few days ago. It has a Penguin 280 HOB filter with wheel running. I'm in no...

    A sticky idea

    I have a question, and I grew tired of looking for the answer in past forum posts. So, I thought maybe I'd get one (or more) of the experts on here to respond and the moderator would consider making...

    traveling fish

    I would think it would be cheaper to buy a tank than to ship it from Hawaii. I got a 29-gallon with the stand, gravel, filter (Penquin 280), hood and light, submersible heater and more for $50. I...

    I'm old school

    Personally, I like UGFs and have had great success with them. As pointed out they make for a great biofilter and are low maintenance. I would even take exception to the advice to run a vacuum down...

    Update to intro

    Well, it's official. I'm hooked. I picked up a 2nd 29-gallon tank today and I don't even have fish in the first one yet and all the accessories to the 10-gallon are in a crate on the front porch...
