Thread: Diatoms again?

  1. #1

    Default Diatoms again?

    Good heavens. Tank was set up for years and I went through all that nonsense once. After tearing down my tank and two weeks later setting it back up, I have the diatom mess again. I had forgotten how ugly diatoms were.

    I feel for you! If you can get some ottos to live, they will take care of much of it.

    So ... what did you put in the tank? So glad to hear you have another one up and running!

    Just that one dumb angelfish. No plants so I don't want otto's. I actually drove 2 hours to get some fish tuesday and the store didn't have anything I wanted.

    I'm sure it's a beautiful angel fish :o) You're going to have to try aqua bid or the wetspot to get your fish. It's a shame there aren't any stores closer.

    Is it that pasty pale angel you have had for years? Diatoms suck, but I know you already know this.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything Happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Rules: If you bend them long enough they turn into loopholes and you can walk right through them.

    Woohoo! I knew you'd get back into the fish tanks!

    Sure is Tracy. Nothing gorgeous about him. I only have him because everyone that wanted him didn't have the right conditions for him. Either another male angel in their tank or their tank was too small. He's the only reason I set this 55 back up again and now he has it to himself. I plan to do as little as possible with this tank. No plants, no thing..............just water changes every week. I got tired of plants, actually, and still have my 29 planted.
