  1. Byron replied to the thread Is my tank nearly fully stocked?.

  2. Byron rated Colin_T's post Agree in the thread Is my tank nearly fully stocked?.

    For the OP. What are the tank dimensions (length x width x height)? How long has the tank been set up for? What sort of filter do you...

  3. Byron rated eaglesaquarium's post Agree in the thread Is my tank nearly fully stocked?.

    Welcome to the forum Darran. Unfortunately, your response indicates a misunderstanding in the beneficial bacteria of the aquarium......

  4. Byron replied to the thread How much to Feed?.

    I didn't mention water parameters previously as I thought there was sufficient to digest with other issues, but I agree with eagles....

  5. Byron replied to the thread How much to Feed?.

    Welcome to TFF, and to the hobby. :hi: It is certainly a good idea to feed a variety of foods, provided the basic nutritional needs of...

  6. Byron replied to the thread Cichlid question.

    Species from different genera will not breed naturally, so far as I know. Aside from that, the hobby is totally against cross breeding...

  7. Byron replied to the thread Crushed Coral.

    Presumably those numbers are in ppm (or mg/l which is the same), so GH at 85 ppm equates to 4.7 dGH (call it 5 dGH). And KH of 40 ppm...

  8. Byron replied to the thread Tetra foods.

    Just one point to add to what has been suggested in this thread, on the bloodworms. This is not a particularly healthy or nutritious...

  9. Byron liked Joshua1990's post in the thread Water Changes.

    Good to know. Thanks for taking the time to help keep my fish heathly.

  10. Byron replied to the thread Rainbow Fish Stocking Options.

    No on the Tiger Barbs (the "green" I assume refers to the green variety of Tiger Barb, so same species). This was covered by essjay in...

  11. Byron replied to the thread Crushed Coral.

    I have done this but it is not effective, for two reasons. The pH will rise, and significantly, but the GH is not affected. You need...

  12. Byron replied to the thread 40g long.

    First we/you need to know your water parameters for the source water, tap water presumably. GH (general or total hardness) and pH are...

  13. Byron replied to the thread Water Changes.

    Not changing water, or not changing enough water regularly, will stress out fish much more than doing a large water change. This is...

  14. Byron replied to the thread Water Changes.

    I change 60-65% of my tanks every week (at one time) and have done for well over a decade. You really cannot change too much water as...

  15. Byron replied to the thread 1 of my fish is only swimming at surface of the water.

    Colin has also responded to this issue, and I agree. A dark background to an aquarium will always result in less stress to the fish....
