The two synos I have get along great, but...

    how many Bnoses? Or otos?

    Hi all, I have a algae problem in my planted 55, and I'm in the process of getting co2 up and running, but in the meantime, I was thinking I could get a 'cleanup crew' for the tank. I have brown algae, green spot algae, and hair algae in the tank, Do you think I could put a couple otos in there...

    how long does it take?

    I just set up my DIY co2, and I have no froth in my canisters and no bubbles. It's only been set up for about 45 minutes, but I'm just asking. -_- :S

    Amano shrimp?

    Well, I was thinking I could add some Amano Shrimp to my 5 gallon. The only inhabitants are Annastasia's CT betta Bob, one very small female guppy and an ADF. I have lots and lots of live plants in there, lots of hiding places. It gets plenty of water changes and I only feed the betta with...

    comparing 2 co2 recipes

    20H for neolamps?

    Hi all, I posted this in african cichlids, but it's sorta dead there. So I'm posting here. :) I was thinking I wanted another african tank, and I have an empty 20High that I don't know what to do with. Is it possible to keep just Neolamprologus brichardi in it, or should I make it a...

    20H for neolamps?

    Hi all! I was thinking I wanted another african tank, and I have an empty 20High that I don't know what to do with. Is it possible to keep just Neolamprologus brichardi in it, or should I make it a shell-dweller tank? I would keep up with water changes. :nod: Thanks! Robin :)

    co2, phosphate. KH??

    Hi all, I have a couple questions. I want to add diy co2 to my 55 gallon, but I'm not sure it would be safe. My ph is about 7.0, but my KH is only at 2 dKH. My tap water ph, however, is 6.1. :/ I'm afraid if I add co2, I would have big pH swings. I definitely don't want my fish to die, but my...

    What deficiency is this?

    Hi everybody, My 5 gallon tank has been doing awesome these days, with regular pearling and a bloom and new leaf ( :hyper: ) on my anubias, but my hygro and limnophila are really being nutrient suckers these days! I almost have to add Flourish daily to keep up with them. The hygro's new leaves...

    Plant nutrient deficiencies...

    Hi all, No offence to any blondes, I'm just joking. Where is that link to all the aquatic plant nutrient deficiencies and what they look like? I think it was on The Krib, but I can't remember. Can somebody direct me to that link or give it to me? Thanks, Robin :) :thumbs:

    plant identification...

    Ok, so I've been trying to identify this lily... It has a big bulb, but I don't think it's a rhizome. It is red, but it does have a slight green tinge sometimes. Here's a pic. Thanks! Robin
