  1. What kind of places rent out par meters so I can see how much light my aquarium plants are getting under water? I dont live near big cIties, pretty rural. Idk where to start. These are my plants, would I even need to rent since they’re pretty low light? I was thinking about getting 2 18w 24-36” fluval aquasky 2.0 for an aquarium 72.5” in length. 1 comet goldfish (hybrid i think with common) 16 years old. 10.5” in length.Thank you guys Amazon sword- Elodia- Java Fern- Anacharis- Java moss- Anubias frazeri- Duckweed- Amazon frog bits- Water spangles-
  2. For app features, I would like Bluetooth iPhone on/off and programmable time via app. Most importantly. To be able to change the brightness of each color spectrum would be nice also. And to be able to set schedules on the app. I have been considering the Aquarium co-op light. I’m very grateful for the help and recommendation. I seen the video about how strong it was and waterproof. Very impressive.
  3. What kind of light would be best to buy for an aquarium 72.5” in length. 1 comet goldfish (hybrid i think with common) 16 years old. 10.5” in length. With these listed plants. Was hoping for bluetooth and phone app features. Or remote. Thank you guys Amazon sword- Elodia- Java Fern- Anacharis- Java moss- Anubias frazeri- Duckweed- Amazon frog bits- Water spangles-
  4. Can anyone please help I’m very confused on how to ghost feed cycle and when it’s done?, cuz this video- - says @ 2:27 it’s done when the nitrates are even zero.. But liquid ammonia or any other method says it’s done when the ammonia is zero nitrite is zero and you start to have nitrates in any amount. When is it safe? I have two Eco bio stones in a 125 gallon tank. My canister filter is a sunsun HW-3000. It has SEACHEM MATRIX in it, which does eliminate nitrates a little bit, correct? But i also have 2 eco-block bio stones. Which eliminate ammonia and create beneficial bacteria but would it ruin the cycle? 125 gallon (tests below cycle description below in bold) -Week 1: I first started the cycle on 3/31/2024 by adding 125mL of API Quick Start and 1/2 cup+1 tsp as first of 3 double dose of API Stress zyme+ “sludge eating bacteria. - Week 2: 4/9/2024 65mL of Seachem Stability to start 8 day stability cycle. Added pellets and flakes fish food. 33ml stability from 4/10/24 until 4/17/24 -Week 3-4 : 4/18/2024 added flakes and pellets. 4/27 more flakes and pellets TESTS - Week 1 - 3/31/2024 Ammonia- 0 Nitrite- 0 Nitrate- 0 - Week 1 - 4/9//2024 Ammonia- 0.25 Nitrite- 0 Nitrate- 0 and every week after ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates are 0 and never showed up. Has my cycle not started? The eco bio stones from onedersave.co do remove ammonia PLEASE NOTE: I have been scooping out solid waste from my 75 gallon tank and putting them in the 125 gallon tank to help cycle it faster every day since week one literally. It even has bacterial bloom a lil bit of cloudy clear water now. (1x) 1’ piece of malaysian driftwood is in tank also. I’m moving one comic goldfish from a 75 gallon to the 125 gallon. I’m really worried about it.
  5. Where do you buy your sandpaper does it matter? I wanna make sure it’s completely clean and safe but idk about regular hardware stores. As there are a lot of ppl who have mechanic oil smudged fingers that may pick it up and look at sheets would that be risk for traces of toxic substances on them? Does it matter what kind of sandpaper? Any toxic?
  6. Do any of you use malaysian driftwood for goldfish?
  7. I googled dangers and risks of sponge filters but im still confused by this i read on the aquarium coop site. For the circled in red in photo attached, what does it mean fine sponge filters if floating cause lack of oxygen and loss of life? Like the bubbles will stop? I got 2 5 inch width sponge filters for a 75 gal aquarium with one full grown comet goldfish but they sink fine after soaking in a 5 gal bucket. Its been only 8 hours of soaking but is there a risk they might float still?
  8. Tank size: 75 gallon freshwater Fish: (1x) 10.5” long comet goldfish Parameters: Ammonia- 0.25 but has been spiking to 0.5 and then lowers to a lil lower than 0.25 Nitrite-0 Nitrate- 2ppm -4ppm was 20-30ppm before 50% water change on 3/26/2024 pH- 8.2 Fish condition currently: no lethargy, eating well once to twice per day but not begging for food., slight red streaks on tail after feeding and hardly any red streaks. Still moving around fine acting happy w slight stress here and there. date of cycle start: 3/14/2024 used api quick start and double dose of stress zyme on 3/22/2024 used 8mL seachem prime on 3/28/2024 at 1:42 pm after test readings. Last test prior was on 3/26/2024 @ 12:40pm setup questions 1. Im using aquarium coop filter sponges on a topfin pf75 hang on back filter. But the brand new floss keeps becoming flimsy and tearing. Affecting the waterfall. I also have 2 mesh bags of bioballs on the left side behind em. Should i remove them from the bags and dump them in the bottom of the filter instead to free up space? 2. the pre filter intake sponges are for safety. Would you recommend cleaning once per week or once every 2 weeks? In a bucket of aquarium or filtered tap water or chlorinated tap water like primetime aquatics on youtube recommended?
  9. Oh thank you very much. I actually have a list of questions I wrote. Can you please help with them? The O-ring around the lid and The 2 seal O-rings around the number 1 on directions inlet & outlet discreteness. How do I know when it’s time to replace it? How will I know when its going bad before its too late and starts leaking? One YouTube video (link below) said when it starts to get hard but how long should I wait? I can’t find the information. I’m really confused. Where can I find this information ? What would prevent a large water leak like one amazon 1 star review said 50% of gallon tank was on floor. Keeping the inlet high to the top of tank or smthng? What kind of grease do I use for the gasket? Pics attached. One youtube video said to use silicone and grease around the gasket where do I apply it at how often do I apply it? and where can I buy the silicone grease? Is petroleum jelly safe to use on gaskets and it safe for fish such as comet Goldfish? Where can i get Gasket replacement parts and 4 seal rings for inlet&outlet discreteness piece cuz im still waiting to hear back from the company. Super grateful for the help I love my goldfish so much. I am so grateful for the help.

  11. Thank you very much for your kindness and help. Both members actually replied, and we’re very helpful. I am very grateful.
  12. Anyone got the sunsun hw-3000 canister filter that could help me with the instructions? What pieces go together and how to stack the floss? I know how to stack the biomedia but do you keep them in the zip bag? If somebody could draw arrows with markup on these pics would really help out. For the number 2 mark up'd pic my question is would i stack 2 of these floss pads on the blue pad? What should i do with the other 2 of the 4 floss pads? For 1 10.5" long comet goldfish in 125 gallon tank
