    Biomedia Prep

    Good afternoon / evening / morning I've currently put a couple extra bags of bio media into my filter system with the impression that when I get round to upgrading to a bigger tank in a couple months I will be able to speed up my cycle. By the time they'll be in there, the media will have...

    Rescaped my fluval, thoughts on before and after?

    This is where it was from when I first got it, I tried planting carpet plants but they didnt take very well probably from my lack of co2!

    Bully Fish

    Hello all, I've had my tank running for awhile now, and started with a small school of Harlequin Rasboras. After I acclimated them to the new tank and released, I noticed one had no eyes from the store but thought I would see how he/she goes. They've been in there for about 3 weeks now, and I...
