    I understand that serious hobbyist would want stock that is unaltered, and that wasn't my intention. Again, I was just looking for someone that may have had experience in this because I need...

    So I'm taking it that nobody has looked into this. I studied biology as well, so I'm more interested in results from experiments that speculation. The journals that I've researched had impressive...

    I agree, but I believe fisheries dose them fairly high due to less than aquarium water quality, plus they're more focused on muscle growth (there is a specific hormone for this in fish). I was...

    Growth hormones and cichlids?

    I've been researching this, and I haven't really been able to find anything other that articles in scientific journals. Has anyone ever experimented with this? I know fisheries use this technique,...

    Another idea I had was growing some type of carpet algae and placing it in the tank. It might be more work, but could it achieve the same effect in reducing nitrate levels? Plus it would give them...

    Any suggestions on where I can get a good deal on the cermet or hornwart?

    Thanks! I'm going to continue mechanical filtration (since it's taking care of the ammonia and nitrite), so essentially this sump would deal strictly with reducing nitrate levels, although it...
  10. What is the best plant to use in a refugium to reduce nitrates in 55 gallon tank?

    I'm looking to find a more self-sustainable method to reduce nitrates in my 55 gallon tank. The tank is heavily stocked with cichlids, and I want to find a plant to help reduce the nitrate levels so...

    The clown loaches do get big (up to ~10 in. give or take), but it takes them a while to grow. I ended up selling most of my stuff because I moved, but I had one in my 55 gal. for about 2 years, and...

    I have kept tiger barbs before, and it seems that 7 is a good minimum number. They seem to just pick on each other more so than the other fish that I kept with them (betas, plecos, tetras, etc.). ...

    I didn't realize how aquarium salt is such a debatable topic! Just like anything else, cichlids can adapt, so I agree that it is possible to raise and breed in...

    I agree that adding salt to a freshwater aquarium is not entirely necessary, but I have to say that I noticed a difference with my African Cichlids. When I first started breeding them I had trouble...
