  1. As you can see the swords are kind eaten/transparent and I have no idea what is causing this. Any thoughts?
  2. Hi. So I have led lights on my aquarium and it can do a 24h cycle of light, where during the day applies several intensity levels of white light, then dawn and dusk uses an orange light and during the night period put's a blue one. Now, I'm only running the white light 10h a day, but I have no idea if the other two colors are useful or even if I should be running the 24h cycle. My tank have guppies, cat fish, snails, shrimps, plecos and will have plants (only one at the moment). Can someone fill me in on this light stuff? Thanks in adavance
  3. Hi all My water is on GH 18. I have a Fluval 207 canister and besides the initial media I added Fluval polishing pads. I come across this product but have ready a few coments of people that this did marvelous things and some other that not only didn't changed the hardness of the water but left the tank cloudy. I have Guppies and Cori, but I would like to add some less tolerent fish as well. Should I use this product, is there other solutions for it, or am I just dommed? Thank you in advance. This is my second post and your guys are great.
  4. Thank you all for your input. It really helped me to understand mistakes and make a plan for the future. Stay safe people.
  5. Hi. I have a 36gal aquarium for about two months. I have 2 guppies, 1 male 1 female, 1 coridora emerald and around 8 guppies fries. I feed them once a day a few flocks for guppies and a couple of pellets for the cori. The water has been cloudy, but it cleared by itself now. I have a Fluval canister 207 with the media that comes with plus polish pads that I add. I've done a couple of 50% water changes and washed the media with tank water. Ammonia levels are slowly rising while Nitrites and Nitrates are 0. Here are my last two readings with the API test kit: April 9 April 17 Temp - 78.0 77.9 ph - 7.4 7.8 Ammonia - 0.5 2.0 Nitrite - 0 0 Nitrate - 0 0 GH - 18 19 KH - 6 7 What am I doing wrong and how can I solve this? Thank you for your time and help. P.S. - In case you haven't noticed...I'm a very big amateur/newbie/rookie. 🙂
