The No Spill Python, in my opinion, is totally worth it for large tanks! Oh, and the Flourishe is actually Seachem Flourish. Might help you when looking for it.I’m prepared because half beats the full price. They are crazy expensive But so worth it to do a larger tank.
Oo those sound fun - I’ll look into aquascaping holders!
Ah right on, I’m glad I checked! Thanks so much on the warning. I’ll get a bigger filter for the bubbler (Nemo: the bubbles, the bubbles, the bubbles!) not doing many but I wanted one corner bubbler to jazz up this underwater spectacular I have outlined in my mind.
Oh the 45-5. The 10 will be strictly a grow/quarantine tank with no long term fish. Every plant or fish will go through there before entering the large tank. Then the 10g can sit ready for emergencies.
I’ll look into flourishe! I’ll research carpeting plants. I was aiming for gravel and sand in different areas of the tank. I think the one I briefly forgot was the amazon sword.
My kitties are all under 15 lbs but inquisitive enough for me to know to take precautions. They are well trained and would be trained with the tank but it’s better to be prepared for everything in my book.
The kitties will not have access to the 10g as it’s in a cut off part of the house thankfully! So any emergency fish or new fish won’t have prying eyes either.
Is a python no spill maintenance device really worth the $? It is a larger tank that means hauling loads of water so I am considering buying one to run into the tank for removing water during water changes, and into a pair of buckets beside the tank to fill so I don’t have to haul buckets but just treat the water & then siphon it in. Good plan or is there a better option?
Oh and I was suggesting a 300 watt because winters here can get pretty chilly and the temperature dips at night. Should I swap to the 200 or is my plan of the 300 model appropriate?
These products are bacterial supplements, intended to promote the establishment of nitrifying bacteria especially in new tanks. It should not be necessary to use any of them once the tank is cycled. And once opened, their shelf life is very limited.Small question! I wondered about Microbe-lift - I already have it from setting up my niece’s tank. Now my question is, should I still buy MarineLand BIO-Spira Freshwater Bacteria? Is it basically going to do the same thing as microbe-lift or is it a different kettle of fish? Can they work in tandem or will they affect each other?
