    Is this Black Beard? Or something else?

    Looks like normal hair algae to me.

    What are you doing today?

    If I was gonna keep a large tank I think, rather than keep huge fish, I’d rather be able to have a huge environment for normal sized fish. Get to see real schooling behavior, or have dwarf cichlids where their “territory” is actually a small territory rather than taking up the whole tank.

    Was eying the different tank sizes while I was at the stores the other day. I’d love to have a larger tank one day. 33 long was cool because it just looked my two 20s connected into one tank. 40 breeder is also nice. Then I see a tank that’s the length of the 33 but height of the 40 and I think...

    Thanks, it looks great from a full tank shot but up close I can still see all the little bubbles underneath and it’s driving me crazy. Been over it with a credit card but those things are tough. Thanks, much appreciated! Dad said if I get a nice store discount, he might start up a saltwater...

    Just went on a fish store trip + progress on my South American tank! First fish store was a local one I hadn’t been to before, but heard good things about. They had a really cool variety of less common freshwater fish, incl. golden wonder killies,knight gobies (which I’ve never heard of before...

    JackGulley’s South American Tank! (Under Construction)

    Not much new. Added some oak leaves from my backyard to see if they would add tannins. I avoided bird poop and rinsed them off in hot water before adding. I don’t see any tannins or industrial yet but they did go from floating to sinking so I guess they’re doing something. @GaryE —...

    Plants aren’t growing in fishless tank?

    I transferred the remaining plants back to my other tank and they promptly died anyway :flushem: I was planning to get different species of floaters for this tank anyway, it just would’ve been a plus if I could get those to grow

    Temporary tanks???

    I don’t think you could keep a horse, farm, or work animal in one of those.

    JackGulley’s South American Tank! (Under Construction)

    Still having second thoughts abt pair vs single- would it be that bad if I just had the pair but let them eat their babies?

    unusual plants you have or are growing in your aquarium...

    Are those dragon tongue beans? I don’t know anything about growing them in a fish tank but they sure are tasty 👅

    Plants aren’t growing in fishless tank?

    Yeah, I was always intending to get a real light. I was just hoping I get get a head start with plants since the tank was gonna be sitting for two weeks.

    Plants aren’t growing in fishless tank?

    Outside the scope of the issue right now lol. My plants do fine in my established tank, just trying to get them to grow in this brand-new tank with no fish, no heater, and no light yet. My water is also very soft already so I don’t know that will ever need R/O.

    Plants aren’t growing in fishless tank?

    It’s a 20 long. I don’t know the specs of the light because it’s just a desk lamp I’ve had forever. It’s an LED light. I try to keep it on about 8 hours a day. My room light is also on all day so the plants are rarely actually in the dark. The lamp and the sad remnants of my floating plants

    I should’ve clarified that I also left a piece of sponge from the old filter in the tank.
