    Changing Ph Levels

    adding salt is not always a good idea... to some species it can be deadly...freshwater fish do not need salt although some, black mollies for instance, do benefit from a very small addition of salt. Salt will also play with your Ph levels(Kh and Gh too).... What else do you have in the filter...

    How Many Bubbles P/s On This Setup

    as many as it takes to get to as near 30ppm as you can without causing stress to the inhabitants. Every tank is different so there is no set bubble rate per second.

    Cat Litter

    after a few years of testing various 'specialist' substrates I now only use the cat litter, it's cheap and is as good if not better than some 'specialist' substrates, the only fault with it imo is the colour but then once the plants have grown you don't see much of it anyway :)

    How Many/what Size Goldfish?

    I can't guarantee the authenticity of any image or any advice just trying to prove my point that what one person would say is ok is not necessarily the best for the fish.

    How Many/what Size Goldfish?

    just because it could be done does not mean it should be done, an adult oranda could end up struggling to turn around in that tank, no matter the amount of filtration it will not remove the hormones released by these fish and therefor could stunt their already line bred induced body shape...

    Algae Outbreak Question

    you don't need co2 with that ammount of light but you will need some ferts, maybe only trace and not macro. Liquid carbon will also help as it is an algaecide.

    A UV clarifier will kill or severely damage (so that they die) single celled algae that passes through them. The passes through is important as thats all it will kill if the algae is attached in your tank then the UV does nothing to it. If your tank is reasonably planted then the cause of the...

    Did My Pump Kill My Tetra

    A healthy fish will not be sucked into a normal aquarium pump. Snails will crawl into them on their own even to the point of stalling the pump usually without damage to the snail.

    Other Ways To Lower Nitrates?

    removal of all nitrate will be nigh on impossible but a very low level can be detrimental to plants which is why a complete fert that has micro and macro nutrients is used (micro nutrients are your trace elements(most general ferts are these))(macro nutrients are nitrogen(nitrate)phosphates and...

    Other Ways To Lower Nitrates?

    water change up to 90% with dechlorinated and temperature matched water will make the difference, by only doing 25% water changes you only remove slightly less than 25% of the remaining nitrate each time, 40ppm,30ppm,23ppm,19ppm roughly ignoring the fact your putting 5ppm of 25% back in each...
