  1. Aquarium tweezers and a Lees specimen container are both tools I think anyone would be glad to have whichever way they decide to setup their tank. And I would include a usb nano air pump too with tubing and air stone, aeration is king.
  2. Come on Dean give us a hint, is it a granulated product... is it the sieve we've all been looking for?
  3. The Co-op has a pretty nice light guide that may help. https://www.aquariumcoop.com/pages/led-aquarium-lighting And in their plants section you can sort by light requirement.
  4. I assume there won't be live bacteria on dry wood but possibly spores or cysts, Would be hard to nail down what temp and for how long to destroy them, but steaming instead of boiling may help you keep in the tannins, better yet use a instapot or pressure cooker and don't submerge the wood. Not things I have tried just my thoughts/ideas on it. GL
  5. I'm no pro on this topic but in my experience if paint fumes harmed fish then mine would all be dead.
  6. How Cory does it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3osdgb7BGw The sieve you need is a 0.1mm mesh, but in a pinch you can use a paper towel to drain the salt water away while keeping the BBS behind.
  7. A lot of us still see beauty even in a "dirty" algae filled tank, No shame here in showing an algae spot. 🙂
  8. Yes, in my experience with other ferts too much can bring on algae problems. I image way way too much could hurt fish. To much of good thing can be a negative.
  9. Right off the Co-op store product description... Recommended Dosing Instructions: If your tank has low to medium lighting: Dose 1 pump per 10 gallons once a week. If your tank has medium to high lighting: Dose 1 pump per 10 gallons twice a week.
  10. @KoolFish97 What are your thoughts on testing brine shrimp? Fast hatching, growth, and easy to hatch out a large population. Plus a good excuse to get the ziss hatchery :)
  11. IMO an experiment with a snail colony would be a good for a month or two experiment. Isolate a variable like food, substrate, or water additives ect. Then you can measure their shells before and after for growth rates and number of snails and eggs for reproduction rates. If you have or can get a bunch of "pest" snails you'll have plenty of data points to worth with for charts ect and snails grow and breed fast enough for it to be measurable in one or two months. I wouldn't do plants IMO, run into any issues and you might not have much to work with at the end in such a short time frame.
