  1. I'm now leaning to an Apistogramma triple red, although the Blue Acara looks really nice
  2. heater is set at 72 but weather here as not given it any reason to turn on, right now it's 78, our A/C is on the fritz. Plants I have a Java Fern, Red Tiger Lotus, Mermaid Weed, Money Wart, Baby Tears and Christmas Moss. Water flow I have a Aquaclear 30 with corse medium and fine sponges and Biohome Biogravel, water flow seems pretty good. Ph was 7.3 but closer to 7.0 now I started to used Co2
  3. I think I have enough bio load room in my 20g tall for a nice flashy "hey see how pretty cool I am" fish. current tank occupants: 6x Green Fire Tetra, 3x Amano shrimp, 2x Julii Corydoras, 1x Neon Blur Goby, 1x large Nerite Snail, 2x small Nerite Snails, 1x bossy Reticulated Hillstream Loach. I feel a lot of options are taken away due to the shrimp possibly becoming a meal and now I have to be concerned with my loach picking a fight with other options. so I am opening up to the room looking for suggestions
  4. I think I read somewhere (please correct me if I'm wrong) if you have chloramines in your water then an ammonia test will indicate it or at least clue you in on the possibility you might have chloramines in your water. not 100% sure on that and would love someone to confirm or squash that.
  5. I have a 20g tall, and my LFS had one reticulated hill stream loach left and I wanted to get some workers to deal with algae that was starting to show up so I got the loach and 3 Amano shrimp, 3 Nerite snails and 2 Julii corys to help cleaning up the bottom. so the Hillstream Loach has been chasing the other creatures he sees feeding on the bottom, such as the corys or shrimp or a neon blue goby, I even seen it chase a tetra, is this normal behavior or is he acting this way because he's the only Loach or is he starving or is he a jerk or am I the jerk for putting him in a 20g tank?
  6. Thank you everyone, such awesome responses, all very appreciated.
  7. oh wow i didn't think of just pouring boiling water in to the bucket, would the water stay hot long enough to work?
  8. I wish I knew someone local that had a driftwood stew pot, they are expensive sheesh. maybe I'll hit up my LFS and see if I could rent one LMAO yeah not likely I know
  9. maybe search for a large enough pot at harbor freight or some place else and trick my wife into thinking I'm making stew or something lol
  10. Some years back I purchased a piece of Driftwood from my LFS and I had put it in a bucket with a lid with tap water to soak and after some life events it became forgotten. I'm wondering if using that driftwood in an aquarium is safe or should I add bleach or something else so it can be used? btw the water is very tea like in color lol go figure.
  11. I went to a Shop in Modesto Ca. and they had one left of these long fin neon tetras and said they came from Czechoslovakia, the pics I took were not very good so I downloaded the pic in this post
  12. I'm in the middle of assembling my stand so not in a hurry to setup a QT atm, I appreciate all the information as it helps me plan out what my goals are. I was planning on using a 20g as the QT and putting it under the main tank along with the rest of the tank equipment, that is not my only spot for it but thought it was space I could use for it. has anyone had issues having a QT located under the main tank?
  13. so it occurred to me I haven't thought about what I need to do to setup for a 20g quarantine tank, heater? filter? sponge or Hob? etc. and what meds I should have on hand? if there's something I haven't asked please advise
  14. can you share what this sump will be used for? size of tank and fish load etc.
