  1. Thanks for the response! Well I already have a couple groupings of Java Ferns and will be plucking the off-shoots of reproducing Java Ferns to re-plant at some point. That's all I plan on having in this tank I think for now at least. I asked this question 1 because I've had to trim around 5 or 6 leaves that had melted away and was just wondering if CO2 would help the plants live and grow healthier. Also, I saw a Fluval CO2 kit on Petco's website for $35 and was thinking, hey if it's that affordable why not look into the benefits and risks of it lol πŸ™‚ If only the Co-Op would come out with a CO2 kit and refill cartridges for a good price I would of course buy it right away from them instead of the big box store. πŸ™‚
  2. That's awesome! How hot does it get?
  3. Welcome to the forum πŸ™‚ That's really cool that you used to collect wild fish!
  4. Hi everyone, I'm trying to find some advice on the benefits of a CO2 system in my 10 gallon planted aquarium. I know that CO2 can have great benefits for the plants, but is it 100% safe for the fish? I only have three Dwarf Endlers in the aquarium. I know that the CO2 should only be running when the lights are on, correct me if I'm wrong. So would that mean that if my lights are on from 1pm to 11pm that the CO2 should be running all or most of that time? Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance πŸ™‚
  5. @Atitagain Thanks for the advice πŸ™‚ Well the decor I want to add is new but is in a plastic bag along with old decor from a tank that had an ICH outbreak. I did however thouroughly rinse with hot water then clean with a white vinegar solution all of the pieces of decor from the problem tank that are in the plastic bag with the new piece of decor. Actually, my large artificial rock cave came from two separate tanks that had ICH outbreaks. I cleaned it each time with a white vinegar solution and am using it in my current aquarium. The ICH in the first two tanks, one tank is the current one I am using, came from other fish and from a new plant. At least I think that's where it came from. I actually had to try three times before having a successful first aquarium, my current one. The first two attempts I had Neon Tetras that I added additional fish to the tanks after one got stuck in the filter intake and died, the new fish brought ICH, then when I started over I brought a new plant into the tank that I'm pretty sure brought ICH as well. These fish and plants were from a big box store by the way. I am using everything including the substrate from my ICH outbreak tanks actually because I read online from another couple of forums that as long as there are no hosts for the ICH to attach to it will die off within two weeks for sure and I should just thoroughly clean all of my tank accessories etc. and can then re-use them. I cleaned everything other than the gravel substrate (which I rinsed repeatedly with hot water) including my thermometer, water heater and decor, with a white vinegar solution, and am using it all in the current aquarium.
  6. Hi, so I've gotten some advice from a couple of forum members on adding hardscape and plants to my aquarium. First, I have a 10 gallon planted (only Java Ferns) aquarium with three Dwarf Endlers, been running and established for about 6 months. I currently only have the Java Ferns, an Aquarium Co-Op sponge filter and a sizeable artificial rock cave in the tank along with the fish of course. (and the gravel substrate, tank heater and thermometer) My concern is that if I add say another bit of decor or two will they bring disease or in any way contaminate the aquarium? If I add any decor I will clean it thoroughly with a white vinegar solution and let it completely dry before I add it to the tank. Any advice or guidance is very much appreciated, thanks in advance! πŸ™‚
  7. @Patrick_G cool, I'll look at getting some more hardscape, maybe plants too. Thanks for the advice! πŸ™‚
  8. Awesome! I've watched Pokemon's animated series some, and Full Metal Alchemist when I was younger. However, for Manga, I just bought Vol. 1 and 2 of Demon Slayer in paperback. They were both backordered so I've gotten Vol. 1 in the mail already, haven't gotten 2 yet. I'm planning on reading it soon. I have to read Full Metal Alchemist 1,2,3 first πŸ™‚
  9. @Zenzo thanks very much for the help and advice! Next order from Aquarium Co-Op I'll buy some of the gel super glue πŸ™‚
  10. Thank you!! πŸ™‚ I actually have heard that, from the Aquarium Co-Op's YouTube videos, I just didn't have any rocks or wood and I was also worried about not giving the fish enough room to swim if I attached my Java Ferns to rocks or wood, there's already an artificial rock cave in the middle of the aquarium. Do you think two or three palm-sized or in general small sized rocks would be too much to put into my tank along with the existing rock cave? Or even could I attach the Java Ferns to the rock cave possibly?
