    They have them in a bucket in case they leak, which is only helpful for a short period. I’d always advise watching the canister filter for a few minutes after you put it together (the first time, or when you clean it). Always use grease or something to…

    Replied to the thread Lighting question.
    Post
    I would say it depends on if you have a hood, open top, or have an actual wooden top that hides your lighting equipment.

    If you don’t mind the look of more lights, I would go with multiple lighting fixtures to make sure you cover all of the spectrums…

    Thread
    Do you guys have any videos or tutorials on this? I know it uses sand and a pump of some type to make this affect, but worried if I make the intake too big it might suck in snails or shrimp who might walk over it

    Could you add the sources for some of the statements made within the disease-related pages (and maybe others)? Specifically looking for any scientific documentation or studies were done that would approve such aspects discussed.

    Posted the thread Making live food at home.
    Thread
    Where are some good places where you have purchased equipment or the necessary aspects for making your own actual alive food at home?

    Any secret aspects you add to make it more beneficial to those fish or inverts that eat it? I personally will make sure…
  • Pros: cheaper overall, thinner fixture, no heat, wide light spectrum produced, cool visual effects like storms, clouds, etc.

    Cons: if they break or don’t work normally means you have to replace the whole unit, heat can be a con if you want warmth at the…

    Replied to the thread beach rocks to be tank safe.
    Post
    I’d wash them in white vinegar and soap, and let it sit in there for a few days completely submerged. Do not boil them since that can cause them to explode or crack.

    I personally wouldn’t use beach rocks since you have no idea of the stuff they have…

    Marked Gilbert’s post in the thread How to make the bubbles smaller? as the best answer.

    Check a valve that you can manually adjust to lower the airflow into the tubing. Otherwise, try to find an adjustable air pump (although in all reality, the valve should be easy to get on Amazon in a slightly bulk setting).

    Thank you both for the replies, I’ll check out the adjustable flow valve and see if the other product options work as well if that doesn’t work nicely.

    Looks like the guide on Ich goes over that on here already, at the very bottom assuming this also applies to saltwater as well.
