Installing backgrounds by D&M
I'm just curious to hear ideas on installing the "wallpaper" backgrounds, to make them look good. I started out myself, just taping on the background, but doesn't give the full effect. I then started putting water between the glass and plastic, smoothing out with a credit card. Works good for a...

Itsy Bitsy Goldfish. by Mellie101
Hello. As most of you know I have had numerous teething problems with my 4 fancy goldfish. A few weeks ago I set up a hospital tank as my Ryukin appeared to have a swim bladder problem. Well she is doing fine now. Thank you to everybody. So today I went to half empty the tank and move it down...

Black Angels Epidemic by MEAlston
I heard not long ago that the black angels were dying off in the petshops due to some disease. Not sure if they were imported or what. Is this true and if so, is the issue still current?

Power filter for 20 gallon tank? by [email protected]
After being out of the hobby for 20 years I plan to set up a 20 gallon freshwater tropical aquarium soon. I am an experienced aquarist, having been in the hobby for 20 years. For ten years I worked at Ed's Tropical Aquarium, a pet store in Lynbrook, New York. I want to keep it simple, and easy...

Damn, I'm ****ed by Rick
Just got home from work and of course checked out my tanks. I took a double take when looking at my 29g, it looked a tad cloudy, not the norm. So I did some looking around the rocks and found my Bristle Nose Pleco dead. Not just dead, but his guts apparently eaten out. He's lived in this tank for...

Mirror in the fishtank by Big Dummy
I have been having problems with a hyper-territorial green terror in my 75 gal tank, he killed a gymnogeophageous meridonalis, a jaguar guapote, two plecostomus and a synuspillum, chewed up two severums and a red devil so badly they had to be removed, beaten up with no tails. Thing is, I like this...

Releasing Native Fish? by wormsburp
I have been considering keeping some native fish, but I was wondering about releasing them once they get large. Usually I would say don't put anything into the local water, but if it came from there, can it go back there? If you would discourage this, is it because it can't be done or because it is...

Anybody made their own glass top? by Angrie.Woman
Still on my quest to provide more light to my tank. I bought a glass top that fits *all* 29 gallon aquariums. Sadly, it won't fit mine. Has anybody made their own? What did you use for the middle "hinge" part, and for the plastic along the back? A ( If I hadn't managed to step on it while I was...

Three signs of addiction by NetMax
The first sign was re-building a tank (polished 10 sq.ft of glass and built a jig to hold a gap for the silicone to cure in). IMHO, anyone who polishes aquarium glass is seriously masochistic, cheap and very addicted to this hobby (me). The second sign came after moving a stand (which hadn't...

Matt's tank - a sad day again :-( by Gill Passman
The female Cherry barb died today....the symptoms were different from before (my news server has deleted the post so I couldn't follow up on that one). For new readers we have now lost 8 out of the 9 fish in the 15gall tank for no determinable reason. I thought that it was a stuck heater and very...

Styrofoam structure #2 by NetMax
Far from finished, but I put some pictures on an unlinked page of my site. http://www.2cah.com/netmax/diy_projects/sculpture2/sculpture2.shtml I never really know what it'll look like until it's finished, and it'll be months before I'm done, but it's coming along nicely. All that's left is...

How to get the "vacuum" started by Suzie-Q
How do you folks get the vacuum tube started when you vacuum your tanks? I've tried the up and down motion suggested on the box, and I've tried putting my finger over the small hole (where the crud comes out) until the pump tube is on the bottom of the tank. Neither has worked for me. So far the...
