My Dirty Little Adventure :D A Journey to a Dirt Tank from start to finish

What's up to everyone out on Fishtank TV!

So it's been about at least 8 years since I've been in the hobby, and back then I was just keeping goldies with fake plants.  Well since the invention of youtube and viewing everyone else beautiful tanks on the net it's stirred up my interest again.  So what happen in the first place you may ask.  Well, I was in my mid 20 and it seemed like I was moving into new apartments almost every year and moving a 30 gallon tank was becoming a…

Bad news

Well my eggs for my discus pair were actually unfertilized and they were eaten. But no worries I know these two will breed again soon. Hopefully next time the male will fertilize them this time.

Brand New Rasbora's Mating?

Last night was a great night, I went to my local Fish supplier with the idea of purchasing some Rasbora's for my 46 gallon planted tank. I had a 8 dollar credit with the store and they gave me 7 Harlaquines for that credit. I was really please. I acclimated them very slowly over the course of a few hours and then added them to the tank. This morning I was sitting watching them for about 35 minutes or so and I noticed some funny behaviour I have never seen before from any of the previous fish…

I'm hoping that I can get…

Well water and copper pipe questions!!!

Hey guys I am getting ready to move and the place I am moving to has well water and copper pipes within the house. I am currently using tap water coming from plastic pipes in my tank with the addition of tetra aquasafe for the chloromines. My concern is that the well water and the copper pipes could have something in it that is not good for my fish. Does anyone know anything about this? I have actually heard people say that well water is actually better for fish but I am worried becuase it…
