  1. jeez I go out of town for one weekend and this post grows 80 replies. 😮 I meant to update though: Since I added a bit of equilibrium and a pump of easygreen (into 5g) its started to green up more. When I said light lime green I mean still green, like not a yellowed dieing leaf, but really getting closer and closer to white. I'm dumb and should have just taken a photo, if for no other reason to have a before and after. In any case all the leaves are now getting into what I feel is a healthy green for a bright indirect light room. The mother plant was on a table that got 30m-1hr of direct light/day and it's interesting to see the difference. I turned the plant occasionally, but you can def see the side that got the sunlight. and the side that got the shade. it's pretty cool actually 🙂
  2. Once a day when I or my 2 year old remembers. It comes out to about 6 days a week. 😉
  3. I wait until my family is asleep and then write posts on the internet 😛
  4. I think some importer must have made them available. My LFS got those in stock and I picked up 2F 2M. I collected eggs for two days and now I have 50-60 fry : D. They're going to look great in next years pond.
  5. I think it chelates heavy metals which would make them theoretically non-toxic, but they'd still be there either in solution or precipitated out. WRT the nitrate and ammonia claims, I've searched for a long time and found nothing. lots of people make adhoc arguments one way or another but I've yet to find any actual explanation. Both fritz and seachem formulations are proprietary so only they can tell us if they're really the same, though I think from a practical standpoint they probably are.
  6. probably Cory can clarify how these nets are assembled, but it looks like the net, shaft, and handle are separate parts, and the net attaches by tightening a ferrule onto the shaft. You might be able to customize your shaft length by replacing it with carbon "kite tube" that you cut to size yourself. It comes in all sizes, but would be expensive for a net (but not really that expensive). eg https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08FJFYQYZ/
  7. food grade has to be in or around water a lot. I bet its a stainless steel alloy and fine to submerge indefinitely in fresh water. I'm less afraid of stainless than others here are though.
  8. interesting. i also didn't add that the leaves are much closer together than the one in the pot or the other pothos i've seen in photos.
  9. You can take the pump off, cram some sponge media behind the "skimmer" vents, and put the pump back in. That takes care of the skimmer vents. you can also get creative with a sheet of co-op filter sponge to protect the side vents and bottom of the tidal 35, which doesn't have the tube part to draw in water.
  10. Have two of those three already. maybe I should just dose and see what happens.
  11. I'm having trouble with the pothos in my HOB. Each new leaf on my emersed pothos is getting lighter and lighter green, its almost a faded lime green at this point. Any idea what the issue might be? The tank is getting lots of food with nitrates in the 20-40 range, but i don't use ferts in this tank. No direct sun but there's two large windows and a sky light, so its a bright room most of the day. The leaf i started the vine from is still a nice dark green
  12. Do you pot your lilies or just set them on the bottom of the minipond? if you pot them what kind of soil do you use? I'm afraid of ammonia bombing my half barrel with fertile soil.
  13. I wonder if you can mix and match handles or use two handles together.
  14. Ugh! That's awful! Water damage is so insidious too. Please stay safe!
