African Butterfly Fish questions

I have decided I want to change my 55 Gallon to a riparium. If you havent heard of them check them out here(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lV8TnMj_E5A&feature=plcp). I think they are awesome and will add something new to a planted tank. I wanted to add a African Butterfly fish but its something Ive never keep before. Ive done a little reasearch and know they will jump and have the potential to glide across the…

Under ground filter distress!

Whats up fishtank peeps!

I've got a dilemma about my ugf's! I have a 125&55 that is 3+ years old and am trying to go planted!

I know DIRT is best but am trying to work around it till next year? Time and money +fish issues keep me restrained at this time! I've heard many opinions about ugf's and plants! Since i heard reverse flow powerheads work better,i switched to them along with 2 36" t-5 ho duals,magnum 350 canister,350 bio-wheel hob filters.I'm thinking of going with a…

building up again

so came back from a trip to see that my tank was nearly destroyed. after a whole day of fixing cleaning dosing and changing i think my tank is going to survive im buying some duckweed and java moss to eat up more nutrients so no algae can grow and i got some black sand to help keep the plant roots down cuz the fluval stratum is too light. fish are healthy got new clowns and new pleco who are still shy any  advice on getting the pleco to come out more?

Moving tips

I am getting married in January, and will be moving out of my parents home. I am terrified about moving my tanks. I have about 5 set up. Ranging from 120 to 10 gallons. I plan on reducing to the 120 and a 55. I really do not want any loss. Some of my rainbowfish are relatively rare, or i have raised from eggs. The 120 (my main display tank) is what i am most worried about. The fish are rather large and it is heavily planted.

So far my plan is to leave the tank set up here, while i set up… Continue

Going Fluval !

Well I've calmed down from my recent upset with CF500 Aquatop filter disaster .  I've ordered me a Fluval 405 canister that should be here in a few days or so .  I'm going to miss the UV sterilizer feature that came with Aquatop's filter ,  but I will at the time I can afford a good sterilizer get one .  I think they are a very good item to use in aquariums .  I have a Fluval 305 already on my 55 gal.…
