    Where In Toledo Oh Can You Get Live Plants?

    I get all mine from www.aquairumplants.com. The shipping kinda makes it a bit pricey so I recommend getting all the plants you need in one order. All my plants from them have arrived in excellent condition and in generous quantities. Beyond that, you can always try out craigslist to see if any...

    Deteriorating Hi-Fin Molly!

    Thanks for your help guys! She's actually doing much better this morning! Her fins are no longer clamped and she's back to being active again!  She also accepted food again this morning! To answer Fishaholic's question she's not skinny. I tried getting a picture of her anyway but she won't sit...

    Deteriorating Hi-Fin Molly!

    No recent additions and no bloating. The url didn't work but I'll look in Sterazin. Is it ok for invertebrates? I have multiple snail species that I don't want to lose either.

    Deteriorating Hi-Fin Molly!

    I have a 5 month old female hi-fin molly that has been deteriorating over the past couple weeks. She's gone from being active, always swimming with my tiger platy and female guppies, to staying by herself with her fins clamped at the top of the water. Her swimming is becoming more shaky with...

    Cardinal Plant And Banana Plant Not Doing Well?

    I've got plenty of nutrients. I'm starting to think there might be some allelopathy going on between my plants as only these two species are affected. The banana plant has been clinging to life since I put in in the tank(surprisingly it's still going a year later) and the cardinal plant nearly...

    Cardinal Plant And Banana Plant Not Doing Well?

    I have been doing weekly 35% water changes. I'm going to try cutting back and keep an eye on my water chemistry.

    Cardinal Plant And Banana Plant Not Doing Well?

    I have t   I have the lights on 12 hours a day normally. I'll try dosing some CO2 and see if that helps. It is weird. I don't think it's nutrients as I have plants that are far more nutrient dependent and they're doing just fine. How do I go about increasing NO3?

    Cardinal Plant And Banana Plant Not Doing Well?

    I don't add fertilizer no. I use a substrate specifically for planted aquariums so I don't have to add it. It's eco-complete plant substrate.

    Cardinal Plant And Banana Plant Not Doing Well?

    I have a 20gal planted community tank. I use two 18watt flouri-glo lightbulbs and eco-complete substrate. All plants are doing fine except my cardinal and banana plant. The cardinal plant has spots of discoloration, like the leaves have been damaged. The banana plant's leaves constantly wilt and...

    Guppy Tails Being Torn Up Again!

        Which then makes it too cold for the Corys, Sand Loach, Molly and Guppies? They are already at their minimum temperature now, ideally you want 25/26 not 22/23. The platy I guess can deal with temperate conditions but I am assuming there isn't a really high turnover rate in the tank adequate...

    Guppy Tails Being Torn Up Again!

    Filter is a HOB Aqueon that came with the tank for initial setup. Yes this is final stocking. I had more julii's but a number of them have passed and none of my LFS are carrying them at the time. My temp is actually a little to high concerning the hillstream loach, I need to drop it another 2...

Fish include-   3 female guppies 1 male guppy 1 hifin molly 1 red-tiger platy 1 red-tail sand loach 3 julii cory cats 1 hillstream loach   I've had issues with fin tearing before that was attributed to an overstocked tank. The tank is fine now but my...

    And that'll be ok for regular plants?

    Resources For Setting Up A Paludarium?

    I love the look of paludariums and have always wanted to create one but I can't find any good sources that explain the process. Some of the ones I've seen have potting soil in the above ground part but I'd be worried about anything leeching from that potting soil into the water and possibly...

    Not Sure Where To Go From Here

    Thanks! Yeah, I agree it's a little cluttered. I might rearrange them closer to the other rocks in a sort of "pile" next water change and move the plants over to the left.

    Not Sure Where To Go From Here

    Ok, sorry for the bad quality, all I have is the camera in my phone. I did away with the moss walls, they weren't growing very well and my fish kept finding ways behind or inside them and dying. I moved my water sprite, water wysteria, to the back and moved the larger rock up. I think it looks...

    Raising Mosquito Larvae

    The containers I've collected from where deep, still tons of gunk.  I "filtered" out some of the water through my net so it's still the color of green pea soup but "clean" and collected some egg rafts and put it all in a bottle. I'll try it this way for now. =)

    Raising Mosquito Larvae

    Summer is nearly here and with it  are the mosquito's. Thought I'd start a culture for my tropical tank as some nice live food. There are plenty outside now in standing water but the water is absolutely filthy and any attempt to net them out results in a net full of gunk that I really don't want...
