I get back home and started on my tank since today is the only day I get to clean my tank and do a water change. I figured how about a 50% change trim the plant all will be good.

How do I find Inert Rocks!

Hey, the last 2 rocks I tried in my tank, raised the PH even though they weren't supposed to, supposedly!!  I like to keep my tanks at 6.8 or so… 

I'm in Northern California near San Francisco, live in Marin County. Anyone know of any rocks that won't raise the PH in my tank that I can buy locally at a rock place or even find? There's an ADA Store in San Francisco but those rocks are freaking Expensive Big time.,.. I'd love to be able to go to the local rock place that sells…

Dirt tank update.

5 weeks into the new dirt tank and I couldn't be happier. I Have a 30g with only substrate and now a 30 tall with dirt. The dirt is allowing faster growth and bright colors. I like a low tech low maintenance tank, so with the dirt giving of the proper nutrients for a few months, it helps.

Best algae eater?

We all buy algae eater? But we all fail to see the best in most fishes. I spend so much money trying to fine the best algae eater and today I would like to tell you all about it. I got two white mollies in a 55 gal with brown algae, green algae, and black beard algae. Two weeks after I got the mollies all the algae on one half of the tank is all gone. From the plants and from the ground. I have to give it to the mollies for algae eating hands down.

20 high build

Alright the next project that I'm in progress with now is a 20 high. So far I'm planing on a pool filter sand substrate with driftwood and schooling fish just because I like the schools better than single fish.

The questions I have for everyone is what type of plants?? And fish would look good in this tank??

Also what type of ferts, food, fish, plants, etc. would you recommend for any of my tanks?? (13 high, 20 high)

Why do saltwater tanks need RO water, and why freshwtaer tanks don't

Why is it that freshwater aquariums are perfectly fine without using RO water, and by using tap water, but saltwater aquarists say you MUST use RO water for marine tanks? (assuming there are no corals). Pls reply, i have never been able to get a straight answer....
