  1. You don't need a ph stabilizer, a Ph of 7 to 7.8 is normal and in the safe range. You would be better to get a basic master test kit that tests for ammonia, nitrites and nitrates, it should also contain ph drops. Basic water changes, salt for fin rot ( be aware it will affect your plants ) and a stable temperature. Always treat your replacement water with Prime and Stability will help with the cycle. Your betta has a lovely home.
  2. You mentioned Ph up and down powders. What is the actual Ph? It is always better for fish to adapt to your actual ph instead of trying to stabilize it with chemicals.
  3. Sounds good, I have a custom 50 gal covered with a piece of plate glass that doesn't reach the back. I'll keep it to sit the Fluval on, and do a cutout section from the polycarbonate for the filters etc. to fit inside the rim. Thanks for posting pics of your tanks, those tops look nice and tidy.
  4. Plants don't do so well with salt, you might want to salt in Quarantine as well. Is your tank normally at 85 degrees. Pepper Cory's are one of the lower temp Corydoras, 76-79 degrees. Hope you can bring your Otos around.
  5. Thank you for the link.. Fluval currently on glass and I forget it's extendable. C.A.R.E. great community for helping each other.
  6. @Ken Is the polycarbonate twin wall strong enough to support a Fluval 3.0? Your LED looks like it might be lighter? Are there 3 panels sitting inside the tank rim on the top photo? The bottom photo looks hinged, are hinges hard to obtain? Wondering if it could be cut ok with a coping saw? Thanks, Trish
  7. That's nice to see, we need more frogs.
  8. @Jungle Fan Is the 9th photo down a Salvia variety? The leaves have me confused..
  9. Welcome to the forum Alann. I'm sure someone will come along with good advice.
