  1. Thank you both for the feedback. I think I may start in garage as suggested since temps stay relatively mild and see how they do there first
  2. Has anyone tried raising colonies of cherry shrimp or blue shrimp outside in large tubs? I live in SanDiego so it never gets too cold but winter time definitely will get into 30’s at times. I know people have them in aquariums without heaters just not sure if outdoors full time is potential option.
  3. Appreciate the inputs. I’ll look into those lights and as far as filters go that’s tricky since wife wants marine tank and I want to keep simple like cory and tetras
  4. I recently purchased a 15 gallon rimless Aqua Japan tank and looking for a solid light and recommended filter. Appreciate any recommendations you can provide.
  5. Thanks everyone for all the replys. Looking forward to getting this tank going soon.
  6. I have a 48” wide acrylic 100 gallon tank that I’m looking to get a light for. Thinking of going with finnex and was wondering if anyone had recommendations for specific brands that they like. It will be planted and acrylic is slightly under 3/8” thick.
  7. I have been doing a bit of google searching and agree with most items found on Amazon are smaller than what Cory has and also looks far less quality, I will keep searching and let anyone know if I find it
  8. Does anybody know where you can buy those large fake log decor from? Like the decor Cory has in lady birds tank and the new turtle tank. Appreciate the help,
  9. Hey Cory, Thanks for the reply. The bulkhead fittings are as follows. 3/4”drain to sump 1” drain to sump - think this is my emergency drain since it extends couple inches higher in my overflow box compared to than the smaller drain? 3/4” return to tank. Branches off to two adjustable flow nozzles in tank. This will be for freshwater only.
  10. Hey all, I recently purchased a 90 gal acrylic with a 30 gal sump. I’m going to use the tank for freshwater planted aquarium and was curious on recommendations for return pump size. I’m estimating approx 4ft head pressure. Tank was used and came with a QUIET1 9000 return pump which seems way more than is necessary and it draws 3.1 amps. Anyone have recommendations for a substitute that will be suitable for the tank? Ideally looking for one that draws less power and is quiet. Thanks for the help
  11. Appreciate all the inputs,this has been very helpful
  12. What brand would that one be? I want to get as big as I can but most I’m seeing under 65” limits me to around 75 gals
  13. Hey everyone. I’m looking at getting a new tank around 75-125 gallon. Need it to be no longer than 65”. Looking for recommendations on favorite brands. Looking at Marineland, aqueon and Topfin but nervous of the comments stating them leaking at the seams.
  14. Hey everyone, I was thinking of adding either german blue rams or possibly apistogramma agassizii to my 40 gal breeder community tank and was wondering through your fish keeping observations which ones did better in community tanks? I read multiple articles that said both breeds individually should do fine in a community tank given they have big enough space. Currently my tank has rummynose tetras, black neon tetras, serbai tetras, cory cats, and otto cats. Its is also heavily planted tank. Any information you have would be greatly appreciated.
  15. The last breeding pair would lock lips like these ones do and spin in circles for a while. Both these and the last pair I had are cleaning the same area which I thought was going to turn into breeding. I do agree it seems like it may be 2 males though because no eggs have been laid.
