Re: Cyanoacrolate Glues

The Cyanoacrylate gel glues are safe. I use Loctite super glue gel.

Re: New to planted tanks

Just a couple of corrections to Gizmo's post. The products mentioned should say Seachem Flourish (not Flourite) Excel, or Flourish Comprehensive. Also, Seachem Prime is not a fertilizer - it is a...

Re: LED lighting

Do you have the tall 15g or the shorter one? And what plants are you trying to grow? Would need a little stronger light for a taller tank and your plant choices will also dictate how much light you...

Re: Ideal fish for a first-time breeder

Stay away from guppies, platies and mollies - you'll be over run in no time. Maybe try apistogramma of which there are many species. I've had the apisto cacatuoides, but there were issues with...

Re: Tips for cleaning algae off the inside tank glass, decor

For the glass, you can try the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser - the original version. This has nothing harmful in it. Could also try it on the decor, but that depends on the surface of the decor. It could...

Re: New and maybe this will work.

30 fish, particularly of the size of rainbows, is certainly too many for the 10g. The stress from that crowding will further weaken the fish and reduce their chance of fighting off the disease. I...

Re: looking for ideas...

Cories are popular and may be a little easier to breed than some other species. Try for some of the ones harder to find at good prices like adolfoi, duplicareus, or caudimaculatus. And there are...

Re: Restarted 37g Community Tank

You can certainly have a planted tank without CO2. Just choose the right plants that use low-med light. Anubias and java fern are two options, but these should be glued or tied to driftwood or...

Re: Aging water vs python changing?

I generally add Prime just before I start the refill, but I have also added it many times just after refill and sometimes during refill. Any of these ways will not harm your fish. There must have...

Re: 30 gallon tank -not as peaceful as I hoped

You should definitely increase the numbers of each type of fish, but if you do that for all that you have, I fear you could be too overstocked. (A little overstocked is not all bad as long as you...

Re: New 47 gallon column planted build

I think pandas are one of the cutest cories. And they stay a little smaller than some of the others. Good luck with these. Make sure you feed them on purpose and not just expect them to clean up...

Re: Aging water vs python changing?

I find the python one of the most valuable tools for fishkeeping, especially if you have multiple and/or larger tanks. I add Prime to the tank just before I start the refill. I have 8 tanks,...

Re: New Tank!

For a nano tank, the Spec V is a nice tank. I have 2 of them, one on a kitchen counter. Mine is black but they are available in white.

The Fluval Edge looks nice and sleek, but from a lot of...

Re: question about young bristle nose plecos

Rather than cucumber try zucchini or broccoli. Just put it in raw, no need to blanch at all. They will also eat many bottom feeder pellet foods and frozen bloodworms, and should have driftwood...

Re: New 47 gallon column planted build

Just a suggestion. I'm not familiar with the filter you have but you might consider a prefilter sponge on the intake, especially for a stronger filter. Shrimp could get sucked into the intake and...

Re: Fish dying! Cloudy water and overfeeding?

Since your tank was only set up a few days ago and is only a 5g tank, I think starting it over was a good thing to remove all of that extra food. That is a very small tank which makes it more...

Re: 47g column tank stocking?

I would stick with one angel only, if you have to have it. Because of the footprint of the tank, I think you should limit the other choices to the cories, and one school of either of the tetras. ...

Re: New 47 gallon column planted build

The footprint of the column tanks make them look really sleek, but present issues for stocking. Most fish use and need the length of a tank rather than the height. For sure, the congo tetras would...

Re: 20 Gal Hex I want a new setup

You want to think about the cories for that tank. You do not have much length with most of the volume being in the height. If you are going to consider them, consider the smaller ones, like panda...

Re: Trouble Decreasing Nitrites

When you do water changes as you see spikes in ammonia or nitrites, use fresh, dechlorinated water. Water from your other tank won't help the cycle.
