    Questions on replacing biomedia for AquaClear filters

    So the benefits of Matrix is that it offers aerobi and anerobi Yeah, not sure what happened, It removed the quotes on me. Was supposed to say: Matrix provided aerobic and anaerobic bacteria to cycle the tank. I have used it for over 17 years with sponge filtration without any issues.

    Chubby plec

    That is a rare find at a LFS. Never seen one by me. Heck if it was on the next state I would drive to get a couple to grow up and pair off. Can't row over, lol. Too bed they are had to find online and quite pricey here.

    Questions on replacing biomedia for AquaClear filters

    em Matrix is a scam. They advertise massive surface area but don't tell you that almost all of it is useless. Water follows the path of least resistance. Do you really think water is going to flow through the pores in Seachem media? It will simply flow around the media. Even gravel provides more...

    Oh dear God Tap water issue.... help

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00204CQF6/?tag=ff0d01-20 This one is what I have. I'm not sure how many tanks you have and how much water you're going through a week, but this would be a pretty good option if you have a small tank or two. You would just need to remineralize your water or you could...

    Water treatment essentials

    The only chemical I consistently use in my tanks is when I do water changes and that is Seachem Safe. It is a powdered version of their liquid water conditioner, Prime. It goes a long way in my fish room and is quite cost effective. I purchased 3 bottles over 3 years ago and have 1 and a...

    White fuzzy but not slimy thing on DW

    So I have a couple questions for you. First is this a recently cycle tank? Second is this piece of wood a new addition to an established tank? If the answer is yes to either one of the above it may just be the beginnings of a biofilm on a new to your tank or uncycled tank piece of driftwood...

    Heating up New Water

    Lol, I have a few tanks; the larger being two 75, three 120, and one 125. We use gravity to empty the tanks and the python to fill. When I empty I will go 75 to 80% with gravel cleaning. Now we don't usually do all the big tanks at once, but alternate every other weekend. It's still a...

    Heating up New Water

    RODI systems are inexpensive and easy to set up vs buying bottled water in that quantity. Not sure how many/big your tanks are but you can set up a Brute with a pump and heater and have water sitting ready when you need it.

    Heating up New Water

    Where are you getting your water from when you do water changes? I just adjust the tap water accordingly so that the water is as close to the tank temperature as possible. I always add Safe to my tanks as I refill them.

    Questions on replacing biomedia for AquaClear filters

    I agree with everyone. You should never replace your filter media unless it is at the end of its life. At that point you can replace in small increments. Always remember that your tank has a maximum amount of beneficial bacteria that it can grow based on nutrients available to feed said...

    Does changing the arrangement of plants/rocks/etc. in a tank cause stress on your fish?

    When my sister upgraded her Peruvian wolf fish in from a 75 gallon to a 120 gallon, he pouted for almost a month. He also pulled out all the swords she planted on one side so that he could watch the fish in my 125 gallon. He still sometimes pouts and refuses to eat so he is getting better. Some...

    Share Anything Christmas

    Lol, getting back to work after being off since the 16th, I am happy that every 3rd/4th song is Xmas oriented at the moment. If I remember correctly they did ramp it up last year, but I will be happy right now. Also happy that they turned the speaker off in the pharmacy. However they seem to...
