  • Avery Replied to the thread Rock Color.

    It’s very similar to live plants in freshwater that have an adjustment period, where they may look duller than normal for a few days to week and then they should brighten up. I would only be concerned if they start to loose all coloration (ex; turn…

    100% recommend this, since you want to drip acclimate them. DO NOT put the old fish bag's water into your water, use a bucket to drip acclimate and then a net to put them into your tank when they are acclimated.

  • Avery Marked Avery’s post in the thread Fish Doctor? as the best answer.

    This is actually a good question, since many doctors exist for reptiles for example and other semi-aquatic animals (or even fully aquatic animals), but there aren’t vets that just specialize in fish for example. In many cases, some vets will take fish…

  • Avery Reacted with Like to Lammchen’s post in the thread Fish Doctor?.

    There are veterinarians for other types of pets, but has anyone heard of a fish doctor? I'm curious who you go to besides the pet store for help when your pet is not looking so great or has a disease?

  • Avery Replied to the thread UV Sterilizer with Refugium?.

    I’d say that it really depends on what part of the tank you’d want to place it in. I don’t think that it’s honestly common, but I’m sure you could add this to the output of the refugium where the water would cycle back into the tank to make…

  • Avery Marked Avery’s post in the thread what is a refugium? as the best answer.

    We actually cover this under the filtration section of the getting into saltwater article (https://aquariu.ms/article/6-s…uide/#22bb0657-filtration)

    But in short, they are just another filtration method that can be also used to source in live food. “A…

  • Avery Replied to the thread Algae Eater Recommendation.

    Do you know specifically what type of algae you want them to consume? Shrimp, snails, and even some other common fish (ex; mollies) could be great for your tank and would get along with them all. Otherwise you may be looking at smaller algae eating fish…

  • Avery Replied to the thread How many....?.

    I think the most that I have ever added to a new tank, was about 30 neon tetras in a 48 gallon Bowfront tank that I had purchased used at the time. They were the first set of fish that I had added once it was done cycling, and the way they were playing…

  • Avery Replied to the thread Brown hair and green hair and slime algae.

    Do you know if the tank is near a window, or possibly, if you are possibly ovefeeding or someone else is? I’ve found for those three algae types, you must have somewhere that extra nutrients are coming into it your tank (that lets the algae grow),…

    I keep seeing posts about them, but am not really clear what they are at all.

  • sattehazoipe Posted the thread Lucky Bamboo as nitrate filter.

    I've been reading about using 'Lucky Bamboo' (Dracaena sanderiana) for a nitrate filter. The only problem is that it is widely held that Dracaena sanderiana is highly toxic to cats. Do you know of another less/non-toxic but equally usable plant?

    are there just aquatic plants that only need florescent light non of the special lighting ?

    As far as making sure they can get along compatibility wise, I would lean on good research. Otherwise you can always look for the first hour and…

  • If it's a simple disease, just run the heater with water on high. If it's something serious, bleach and a giant bottle of white vinegar before using soap and then hot water until I can't smell any of it.
