  • Li0nFish Replied to the thread what-are-some-cleaning-tips-for-your-tank?.

    The one tip I always give people is the smaller the tank, the more often in needs to be cleaned. I would say that in most cases, a 5 gal tank should be cleaned every other week unless you have just shrimp or snails, then once a month is fine.

    In some…

  • Li0nFish Posted the thread USB air pump?.

    I saw someone talking about these on their video recently. I can't remember who it was or I would link it. She was using a USB-powered air pump for her 20 gallon tank since she didn't want a filter going. She was keeping newts in it. Has anyone ever used…

  • Li0nFish Replied to the thread Can you mention any best aquarium air pump?.

    I have not used a stand-alone air pump in a long time. I have one I never used. I bought it for making a micro tank for my beta when the main filter broke but just ended up getting a new tank that came with a new filter.

  • I don't think you need an air pump if you have a filter but I guess this really depends on the fish. Some fish do better when there is air flowing within the water while others prefer not to have this.

  • Li0nFish Replied to the thread How a battery operated aquarium air pump work?.

    I would imagine these don't last very long. Anything that I have had run on batteries that has to go 24/7, usually dies within a few days. It seems silly to use something like this IMO.

  • A friend of mine was telling me that his boss has a 20 gal tank in hit office with 3 goldfish in it. He doesn't have anything on the bottom of the tank, it is just glass and there is a bubbler in it as well. I asked if he had any decorations or anything…

  • Li0nFish Replied to the thread Water temperature and PH is too high.

    Well, I know for most fish 96.6 is WAY too high of a temp for them. Most will top out at 88. Maybe your heater is broken? I would unplug that for a while or switch that off for starts. You can add ice cubes to the tank to cool the temp down faster as…

  • Li0nFish Replied to the thread A random question you always wanted to ask?.

    Some fish do act silly. I think certain ones actually end up having their own personalities which have always fascinated me. I don't have a question right now but I will come back to this thread if I think of something!

  • Li0nFish Posted the thread Any ideas on ways to dim a light?.

    I have a built-in LED light on the hood of my small tank and it is pretty bright. I think it can be bothersome for the shrimp as they hardly come out until it is off.

    Is there some way I can safely dim it a bit? I thought of using some sort of water-proof…

  • Li0nFish Replied to the thread Rainwater for aquarium water?.

    Where I live, we have very soft rainwater. So soft that if you collect it and run it into your hands, it feels as if you put lotion on. One of the perks of living far enough from a city an in an area surrounded by parks.

    Not all fish do well in soft water…
