Huge Update on Fresh and Saltwater!

So it has been a while since I have taken some time out to really brag about my progress. Not that there is much since I barely have time to feed the fish lately.

10 gallon planted tank is overrun by pond snails and looks like complete shit! I only see 2 white clouds left and 4 zebra danios. The good news, the shrimp are spawning like crazy! That is something I can sell back for some profit once the get to a decent size. I have been dying to tear this tank down and get a 30 gallon…

Its That Time Of The Month Again...;)

Sitting in front of my fish tanks after a hectic week of work and activities...can't get any more relaxing than this. However, the feeling of relaxation only lasts a while before being overtaken by a burning passion and desire to revamp my fish tanks. Let me explain, for a few weeks now I have wanted to aquascape my 50 gallon tank but I have had to wait for the plants to grow a bit taller and bigger. Well, now everythings rollin and growing like crazy and I just have to go down to the lfs to…

Larger bubbles coming from substrate

I have noticed some big bubbles coming from my substrate recently it isn't that often but when they do come up it is in a group of like 4-7. I have had the tank up and running now for 2 months and it is a heavily planted tank. My plants are growing like crazy so I don't think the gas is bad but I even took plants that I couldn't get growing in my other tank into this one with crazy good results. Just give me some input thanks

otocinclus eggs

I have five otocinclus catfish in a ten gallon heavily planted tank. Two are females and three are males. Both females are about to lay eggs (i can see them in they're "bellies") and was wondering if any of you guys have ever had this happen before. I know it's very rare. I noticed the eggs in they're "bellies" while I was treating ich and my temp has been at 86 the past week and a half and I'm about to stop treating. When treating is over I'll move all the other fish to a twenty gallon and… Continue

While in the Caribbean I picked up a couple pieces of coral and was thinking what do I have to do to them before I put them in my tank.  Anyone know if I can do this?  Thanks.

Update on the 40 planted

2 weeks in and cycled, water is super clear and plants are showing lots of growth. All parameters are normal. Fish seem really happy. I don't like how I set up the plants at this point but I think its a little late to change anything. I will just have to live with it until I move. I planed the planting before I did it but didn't know a lot about the plants that I got because it was a package so... next time. I should have more  plants by the time I replant, I guess I will just have to do the…
