    Tetras huh? I'll look into that. Pretty much ruled out the Discus. Too expensive, and just require al bit more attention than I have to give right now.

    So, I was hoping for some suggestions for the next tank. I don't really want to go into salt water. I was thinking Discus. I have heard they are very sensitive, then I have heard that has largely been bred out of them and that they aren't nearly as bad as they once were. Any Discus owners...

    Actually we just changed the fish around a little today. Mostly guppies, 4 neons, a couple baby bristlenose Plecos, 2 albino Cory Cats and a couple bay common Plecos. All the Plecos will out grow this tank of course, but they have homes waiting in my other tanks.

    I plan on re-homing one of the Oscars. I just feel a pair is better, plus the tank also has a 12 inch Pleco, so it will be too crowded if I keep all three.

    I agree about the live plants, but the Oscars are a bit to destructive. I might switch the cichlid tank over to live plants, waiting to see how much they dig as they mature.

    Share my tanks

    Well, finally getting around to sharing my tanks. Always open to other ideas and suggestions. Up first, my 1st tank that started it all. My 125 gallon Oscar tank, (quickly becoming overstocked by at least 1 Oscar). My other plastic plant tank. My 40 gallon African Cichlid tank. I...

    Biomedia

    I wondered that as well, but then thought of Bio Balls. They are also non porous.

    Seems to be some type of plastic, but they don't float.

    Is there a down side to this? Is there anything I am overlooking?

    Biomedia

    I recently came across 2 cu/ft of Wlim 4904 sinking bio media, (pond filter biomedia). I am soaking what I need in a diluted bleach mixture for a couple hours, then uber rinsing it and drying it in the sun. Anyone see any reason this won't be a good biomedia for aquarium canister filters?

    How do I get food to my Pleco

    I have recently acquired a 12 Pleco to go with my 4-1/2 to 5 Oscars. The Pleco has done an amazing job at cleaning the algae in the last couple of days. My question is does anyone have any tricks to getting food past the Oscars to the Pleco? I tried distracting them one side of the tank, and...

    RV Filter

    I do use the liquid, but it would seem that an inline filter would just be an added benefit.

    RV Filter

    Does anyone , or has anyone used an RV water filter to help remove any chlorine at water changes? If not, seems like a good idea? If so, is there any particular one you've found more effective?

    Going to steal bacteria

    Yes, the other tank will keep running. Just trying to get a feel for how much bacteria I can steal from it without crashing it.
