    Setting Up New 125 Gallon Planted Tank

    Yes, those are the measurements... It's not ideal, I know, but we have such a perfect spot for the tank, and it'll free up so much space from the other tanks, and let us expand just a little bit all at the same time. The glass is around half an inch thick, and I already found and patched the...

    Setting Up New 125 Gallon Planted Tank

    I just got a 125 gallon tank for super cheap (it just had a small leak I neeed to seal). The largest tank I have right now is only 20 gallons, so this is sure to be a completely different beast. I have a few general ideas on what I want to do with this tank, and was hoping for a few suggestions...

    Angelfish Dying Overnight! Please help

    I'm beginning to think this is definitely a parasite. I just noticed my two baloon mollies laying on the ground. At first I thought one of them was dead, he was completely motionless. I grabbed the net and waved it in front of him a bit and he got up and swam away just fine. Do you guys think...

    PH = 7.0 Ammonia = 1ppm Nitrate = 0ppm Nitrite = 1ppm Also some other parameters on my test strips: Carbonate = 80ppm Total Alkalinity = 80ppm General Hardness (CACO3, ppm) = 0 Free Chlorine = 0ppm So it does appear there was a nitrite and ammonia spike. Most likely from the angelfish death I...

    Angelfish Dying Overnight! Please help

    I will definitely not be adding more angelfish to this tank. I have one remaining angelfish. But she has been in a separate tank this whole time. She's a little bigger than the others I had (about half the size of my palm), and she's in a 30 gallon column tank. There's a couple tetras and a...

    Angelfish Dying Overnight! Please help

    I have had three different angelfish die in the past week or so. There are no physical signs of injury, disease, etc. in the first two. The third, which we found dead this morning, had a very slight bulge on his side. I'm assuming right around where the swim bladder is? We have another...
