Tonight while feeding some baby angelfish my wife noticed something in their tank. There was a very hard to see "thing" in with the fish. The thing was much smaller than a human hair and was .25" in length. It had a bump at one end that I would presume is its head. It was white all over. After...

Odd Filter Question! by Ben
Hi All, I was wondering if anyone had ever hooked up an overhanging powerfilter to an undergravel filter? I notice that after I have my tank set up for a while, lots of mulm accumulates under the UGF's bed. (Again, this is expected and wanted). So every other water change I do, I pull out...

New tank. What is a cycle? by Telemundo
I've gotten back into the aquarium thing and to tell you the truth I've never thought nothing of the cycle. I'm not sure that it is as big a deal as the LFS said it was. As a matter of fact another store told me not to make a big deal about it. Anyhoo....... I have been putting my cichlids...
