    aquarium smell

    I think it may be different for larger volumes of water. My 20g smells (when you stick your nose up to it) but my 210g doesn't. Thank goodness too because you'd be able to smell that much water at the neighbors [emoji24] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey all!

    Hi everybody! I know it's been a really long time since I've posted! My life has been crazy with remodels of the house and I've been focusing on my YouTube channel (Mile Hi Freshwater). I figured I should get back to socializing with you guys! Here is a current pic of my 210 gallon frontosa...

    Padding Rocks On The Aquarium Floor

    I would just be afraid of it holding all kinds of crap. I wouldn't trust it because it could cause a huge ammonia issue.

    New 20 Gallon 5Th Tank!

    I was AMAZED at the plants I received! I got so many, I had NO idea where to put them! I also picked up a pair of GBR's and 6 Neon tetras. Not sure what my full list will be.

    New 20 Gallon 5Th Tank!

    Okay well here is a pic of the final hardscape I came up with. I have a pressurized CO2 setup ready to go. Not sure if I'm happy with the diffuser but I can change that later. I ended up with the Aquatek mini as the regulator. I have a new Finnex Planted+ 24/7 coming tomorrow as well as these...

    Sorry about the cloudiness but I just flooded the tank. This is what I came up with for a hard scape. Plants are coming on saturday!

    New 20 Gallon 5Th Tank!

    So this is going to be my 5th tank, but my first planted tank! All my other tanks have different kinds of cichlids, so I am not sure what I am going to stock this one with. I am still in a rough stage right now with no plants. My plants are supposed to arrive this weekend so I can really get...

    We Have A Spawn! Kinda Weird Though...

    I know,I had no intentions on selling them as I said already. I fed them to one of my other tanks anyhow.

    We Have A Spawn! Kinda Weird Though...

    Sooooo two of my cichlids Have decided to spawn. I have been moving around fish from tank to tank making room for a different pair to spawn and something odd happened. I put two convicts in with a salvini, Jack dempsey, and an albino oscar. Almost immediately my salvini paired up with one of the...

    Cheap Fake Plants? Advice?

    I've seen others do it before. I don't think it's an issue unless it has some weird paint on it or something.

    Had A Small Family Emergency This Morning...

    Like I said I'm going to be installing a diVider. I am good with cichlids as I have 5 tanks full this is just the first problem I've encountered

    Had A Small Family Emergency This Morning...

    Well I had that post about my pearl cichlids trying to breed...well their efforts failed and the male started beating up on the female. I noticed this morning she was torn up and kinda floating near the top. As I was trying to get ready to leave for work I threw one of my empty 20 gallon tanks...

    Long Time No See! Fish May Be Getting Ready To Breed!

    Looking At Swapping To Cichlids

    If it were me, I would use 100% ammonia. Just a little bit every other day or so will keep your bacteria happy!

    125 Gallon Re-Scape!

    I would have to say, the pots weren't so much decor as they were nice caves for the fish. I have a lot of cichlids in the house that love to hide! I really do like it without the pots, though.

    125 Gallon Re-Scape!

    Sorry for the potato quality of the new picture, not sure what my phone is up to! So this is my 125 gallon that I decided I didn't like the flower pots in anymore. I don't like the fake plants either, but those are going to have to wait. I picked up a nice piece of wood to go in place of the...
