    Help!

    Oh thank you! Is it unusual to have very hard water but low kh and ph? I mean I guess my fish are used to it! But I just want the ph stabilized a little more. I ordered an alkaline buffer... just trying to learn as I go.

When I clean the objects inside The...

    Help!

    Yes, it was fully cycled, and when I would test the water, the hardness of the water was always high, but the ph was at 7 and there were no nitrites and barely any nitrates, I must’ve done something wrong along the way, should I do a 50% water change? I’ve done several smaller water changes but...

    Moving

    Hello! What are some tips on moving fish, and causing them the least stress? I am relocating a short distance away, have 10 fish total to transport! (Fairly small, they are serpae and black skirt tetras and two corys) They have been doing well so I’m stressed to have to move them! Thanks in advance!

    Serpae tetra and black skirt
