    Loach Identfication

    I was at one of my nicer fish stores the other day, and was looking to pick up a couple new loaches. They had several they were selling as "Burmese Border Loaches", and I ended up buying three of them. What I find confusing is that they don't look like the Botia kubotai that I normally see...

    Ph Level Advice

    A friend of mine is setting up a new tank, and is just starting to cycle. When she tested the water in the tank, it was showing her PH levels to be around 7.6. So I had her test her tap to see what it was, and not surprisingly it also was 7.6. I've never really had to deal with water with a...

    Cloudy Water

    A gentleman that's been coming into the store has had his 10 gallon tank set up for around 3 weeks. I can't remember what kind of fish he has in there, but it's around 5. He's been complaining that his water has been cloudy for probably the last two weeks. I thought it might be associated...

    Test Kit Accuracy

    Just a quick question, and perhaps an explanation. I've always thought the liquid test kits were the more accurate tests. How accurate are the API liquid test kits? How accurate are the Quick Dip test strips? I had water that was tested with both, and the ph from the API liquid test was...

    Do These Cycle Boosters Actually Work?

    Saved a pleco

    I'm to soft hearted I guess, but I couldn't help myself. I went to this place called "Pet Time" a few days ago and on the main desk there was a 5 gallon tank with nothing in it except some black sand and a pleco that was 8 inches long. I went to the store manager to ask him if I could take the...
