    Caco3 Substrate In An Aquarium

    Hello everyone! I used to be a regular user of this forum, but I've spent the past few years dealing with...well...life!   Anyway, cutting straight to the point, I bought the only true BLACK sand I could find on the internet (my area is terrible for aquatic item purchases you see), but it turns...

    Caco3 In A Fresh Water Aquarium

    Cutting straight to the point, I bought the only true BLACK sand I could find on the internet (my area is terrible for aquatic item purchases you see), but it turns out that it is a substrate used for reptiles etc, and is made up of CaCO3. Ive spent a few years away from fish keeping, so a few...

    Would My Coconut Cave Be A Proper Breeding Place For My Angels?

    I find that angelfish prefer to spawn on broad leaves...amazon swords in particular. Just buy one for about £1.50 or something, stick it in the middle of the tank and viola! you have an ideal place for the fish to lay eggs. Vertical surfaces are more ideal than horizontal surfaces, however...

    Soing I'm Going To College...

    im at university at the moment (i'm in the UK so i guess we're talkin about the same thing) and i would suggest NOT getting a fish, especially if youre living on campus. this is obviously depending on your circumstances. not only does a fish take money away from the "have a good time" pile, but...

    Sore Barbels And Question About Sand Over Gravel

    as long as the temperature change isn't extreme and you dechloirate the water used then it won't bother the tank at all. just keep doing that until you've had enough of it and you wanna go to bed lol Pink.

    Sore Barbels And Question About Sand Over Gravel

    you've probably done something by now, but what i would have done is either placed the filter in the bucket/bin with the fish or wrapped the filter media in cling film and frozen it. following that, i would have done water changes over and over again until the water cleared. i personally wouldnt...

    Sore Barbels And Question About Sand Over Gravel

    it is your decision obviously, but if you're trying to keep stress levels of your fish to minimum, disturbance over a long period of time is going to stress them out more than one disturbance. placing fish in a bucket isn't going to stress them out at all as long as they are together. think of...

    Sore Barbels And Question About Sand Over Gravel

    I think what that quotation is refering to is when you uproot a plant, its almost impossible to re-root it in a sand substrate. I had amazon swords in my previous tank with sand and they were fine...heavily weighed down by the sand so if that quote is refering to general rooting of plants, its...

    Urgent Help Please . - Bristlenose Eggs .

    I'm not sure. I guess it could depend on species. I've never been too fond of BNs so I've never had major interest in them. They're not the prettiest of fish and they're no challenge to breed. My eggs were yellow, so I just went from that. Pink.
