  1. What kind of plants do you plan on keeping? Many won’t need co2, but it helps them grow faster. There are many designs for soda bottle yeast co2 generators, just search around. the king of diy has a few videos on this subject, and they are all pretty cheap.
  2. Have you ever heard of micheals fish room? He currently has the mutt guppy project 2.0 going on where you send in 5 guppies and get a $20 gift card to his store. He has a separate video on shipping fish, and he breeds quality guppies. Just an idea, and good luck.
  3. So I noticed this weird white stuff on almost all the silicone part in my tank(suction cups, elbows, and fluval 307 pipe connectors), and it has been since about a month after the filter was installed, which was about 10 months ago. It isn’t calcium or mold, as it is always completely submerged. It isn’t affecting water quality, as nothing changed even when I was 2 months behind on maintenance 😰. It just looks ugly. Thanks, and all help or opinions are appreciated. The picture is after I scraped some of it off. Maybe it will help.
  4. Just thought of another neat project. A device that you hang on the side of the aquarium with a sensor to measure the water level. When the level gets close to the top, it starts beeping to let you know it is full, and maybe even shuts off the filling pump via relay or Wi-Fi smart plug.
  5. So pretty much a modular filter. Neat. Have you seen the king of diys above tank sump? it seemed pretty modular.
  6. That doesn't look like ich to me, I think it is either mucus or fungus. I’m not familiar with those things, but I would still add a little aquarium salt as it will insure that if it is ich, it won’t be a problem in the future. For that, maybe @Streetwise or @Patrick_G will know. Next time you start a tank, I have to recommend Dr.Tims one and only. It is live bacteria in a bottle, but it gets even better. Unlike other brands, it cycles the aquarium within 48 hours, and you can’t overdose it. You pretty much dump in the whole bottle, and your done. ( @Cory, you should really carry this for the coop) Nevertheless, good luck, and if I can help with anything else, let me know.
  7. Ok Thanks anyway. I’ll have to make my own in Inkscape then.
  8. I live in SC as well, but where I am, the only tap water issues are a slightly high PH(8.2 ish). But that’s no issue for me, because once it mixes with aquarium water of 6.8, it balances itself out.
  9. Can I get the template for that? I think that with goldfish(some people train them) would be pretty funny!
  10. I don’t even use activated carbon. I just use a biological media in that spot on all my filters. No problems for the 3+ years I’ve been doing that.
  11. I personally don’t know a lot about Columnaris, but this video by micheals fish room may help.
  12. I’m going to be an oddball here, but I think he might be doing the damage to himself. Do you exercise Curly with a mirror for about 15 minutes a day? With bettas, they can get bored in their tanks so they start nipping they’re own fins. When they see themselves in the mirror, they think its another betta and start showing off their fins. When they do this, it exercises their fins, and keeps them on the lookout for other betas in the tank. Once you start doing this, you will notice that he is more active as well. I still recommend using the Kanaplex, as it will insure that there is no fungal issues as the fins grow back. Good luck!
  13. Which fish are flashing? What are they flashing on? How long has the tank been set up? Where did you get your fish from? Did you quarantine them when they were new? What temperature is the tank? What kind of filter does it use? Nice tank by the way. Hopefully we can help you fix the issue.
  14. Wow! That’s some neat stuff you’ve made. Thanks again! I’m working on a bubbling fish decoration, so when I finish that, I’ll be sure to edit in the link.
