    Aquarium Frame

    I was told that seeing that there was no cross piece(s) that the frame was only decorative. If I tried to do it your way with the 1x2 construction how would I have my glass top? Plus, wouldn't the wood need to be treated so it doesn't warp?Could you post some pics of what you did to yours?

    Moonlight Led's, Ebay Style

    Lemme get in on this conversation. First of all, many of the strip lights sold on ebay were actually meant as motorcycle under carriage lights used to pimp out your motorcycle (thus the odd wiring) and not meant as aquarium lights. Plus most of the lights sold on ebay are not true moonlights...

    Aquarium Frame

    I was going to do that...with 1/4" plexi top and then a custom canopy. But the plexi needs to rest on the inner lip of the aquarium trim. That's why I need to replace it OR find an alternative.

    Plans For A New Mbuna Tank

    GREAT SITE THAT!! Anyway...My main objective is lotsa color... that being said I like the Pseudotropheus and the Metriaclima zebra as an example. Breeding or not doesn't matter to me because if there are fry at some point I have other tanks for raising them in etc.

    The Maracyn and Maracyn Two came in 8 dose packets. I intend on using up all the meds and then giving Cabot another 5 - 7 days in quarantine before placing him back in the large tank. It also says on the Maracyn instructions that no water change is required providing the water levels (ammonia...

    Just an update. "Cabot" has been on the Maracyn for 5 days and the Maracyn Two for 3 days. I still find him sleeping on the bottom in the morning but during the day he has a ton of energy and he never sits on the bottom during he day at all now. Is it possible that he simply likes the rest on...

    Anyone Have Any Ideas Whats Going On With This Cichlid

    I'm definitely not a pro but it looks to me like he got into a fight or got scraped up on a rock or sharp ornament. The only reason I say that is that if they weren't there yesterday then that seems logical. His pectoral fin looks a bit damaged also.

    I only got the maracyn (I did not see this post until agter I got back). I wil also get the Maracyn Two in a day or so. Should Cabot be fasting? I have not fed him in 24 hours now and I was planning on feeding him again tomorrow again (one pea).

    Hi all; So I got my hospital tank set up and I used some gravel and a few rocks from another tank to help with cycling (I know the meds will likely wipe out the good bacteria anyway). I also put an artificial plat from his ("Cabot's") old tank into the new (something familiar). I was unable to...

    As promised; here are three videos. The first is the fish darting to the top and then releasing the bubbles from his mouth. Number two is about the same except you will see him rest on the bottom for a second or two. The third is what has been more typical in the past day or so. It is weird...

    Just turned on the lights in the tank and he seems to be somewhat better today....more energy. Maybe the peas last night were helpful. He still sits on the bottom of the tank but so far this morning he is only down there about 10% of the time so far; whereas, yesterday he was down there 80% or...
