    That’s very interesting as everything I’ve read says you should. Who knows what to believe anymore.

    Hard Water Mystery

    Sure about the gravel but there are a number of fake shells and snails that I’m not sure about. I’ll remove them and see what happens. Thanks

    Hard Water Mystery

    PH is relatively the same at around 7.1 using either test. When you say out gas would that refer to letting the water sit for a while before testing? I should have mentioned that both nitrates and nitrites are in good shape. It’s the alkalinity and overall hardness that are out of whack.

    Hard Water Mystery

    Thanks Kribensis, I have both test kits and although results vary slightly between the two, the differing results remain the same. I rinse and wash the decorations regularly but have yet to do so with the gravel. That will be my next step. What’s truly baffling with my Angels is that some will...

    Hard Water Mystery

    So the test strip on the left is water from my tap. The one on the right is from my aquarium. What’s strange to me is that although I do all of my water changes from the tap, which tests out being very soft, the tests on my aquarium water consistently come out very hard. I don’t understand how...

    Good Morning Fish Heads, I have a water quality question for all of you. I have been working on keeping all of my water parameters in check but have an interesting problem that I’m hoping you can help me with. When I check my water hardness in the tank it comes up as a whopping 280 PPM. If I...

    Question About My New Fluval Aquarium Lights

    A bit more info on the whole strange Fluval purchase from yesterday. When I told my guy at PETCO that I was looking for a better light setup than the cheapo Marineland that came with a package I bought about 5 months ago, he walked me over to what should have been the Fluval Plant 3.0. The...

    Question About My New Fluval Aquarium Lights

    Nope, not scammed…Mystery solved. Bought this off the shelf at Petco. Undamaged box, with all protective materials untouched. So I just got back from talking to my guy at Petco. Upon looking at the unit he said that someone at the factory had to have screwed up. He wasn’t sure what Fluval model...

    Question About My New Fluval Aquarium Lights

    Hi Gache7 Thanks for your input. Here are some pictures of my light and a snapshot of the owners manual referencing the power switch. Can’t for the life of me figure out why there is no switch. I can’t imagine a manufacturer making a light that has no on/off switch. I just bought this yesterday...

    Hi all you fish heads! I just purchased a Fluval Plant Bluetooth light setup. The model number is 14523. I’ve got everything set up and the Fluval app downloaded that lets you use it’s various features, including an on/off function. My question is this, in the owner’s manual there is a section...

    Yellow Mollie turned almost white

    Thanks sgooosh. She’s been like this for a few weeks and like I said, no other issues other than the loss of coloring.

    Yellow Mollie turned almost white

    This Mollie was a bright yellow and black but has now faded to a very pale color. It seems to be healthy in all other respects.
