PerceptivePesce Posted August 1, 2022 Share Posted August 1, 2022 Hello, All! I've been gathering information on the aquarium hobby and I'm at the stage where I understand the basics, but have some difficult questions. The aquarium co-op blogs and vlogs have been very helpful on my journey, and I wanted to say Thank You! (I liked and subscribed, and I'll be buying stuff when I get to that point.) I'm interested in fancy goldfish, and live plants. My plan so far: a 75g tank, 0.5" sand, columnar plants tucked in a pile of 3"-5" river rocks, 3 fancy goldfish. Water change and filter clean no more than once a week. I'm debating foam filter vs optimized canister. The only reason I like the foam filter over the canister, it's a big one, is the practicality of cleaning a simple foam filter. Oh, and the back-up battery air-pumps during a power outage are nice too. But, how many foam filters would I need for My plan?* If more than 2, then the minimal-in-the-tank canister starts to become more appealing. How many do y'all think I'd need?* My other questions are about pH, PPM/TDS, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, but I assume this is something I'm going to have to learn as I go since local water parameters are all different. I wish I knew how all this chemistry stuff correlates with each other. Is there a discord channel? *I take responsibility for whatever decision I end up making. 8 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
