Potassium Test Kit by Nikki Casali
Can anyone recommend an online website where I can obtain LaMotte's Potassium Test Kit #3138? Forget the UK. I'm interested in outlets in the US so that my brother in SF can possibly obtain it. Nikki

FloraPride softening water? by dfreas
I was adding FloraPride to my tank today via my usual method of pulling half a gallon out of the tank, mixing in 10mL of FloraPride and then dripping the water back into the tank again. Half way through I decided to see if the FloraPride was raising my GH any out of curiosity. To my suprise I found...

Fluorite woes by Elaine T
I'm awfully glad I tried Fluorite in my 2 gallon tank before setting up the 15 gal. I like to plant my stem plants Amano style, in single stems with tweezers. This works fine in the 2-3 mm gravel that I've always used. In Fluorite, the medium is so light that it doesn't hold the stems down. The...

driftwood question by DNT
I have a piece of Malaysian driftwood that I want to put in my aquarium. The sender suggests soaking it for 2 weeks. A book I have suggests boiling it. My question is this: I've boiled the wood for 20 minutes and am prepared to let it sit for 2 weeks, but do I change the water or just let it sit in...

Nitrate supplementation - right solution for my tank? by Elaine T
I mentioned in an earlier thread that I redid my 2gal betta hex as a "real" planted tank. Before I had Mayaca and Rotala indica growing on ambient sunlight and UGF. Shoulda left well enough alone, but I wanted to grow something in the foreground. Not enough light was making it past the tall stem...

Help Identifying Insect by Aaron M
While cleaning my tank today I came across what I would assume to be some sort of insect larvae which must have came in when I got some new plants a few weeks ago. It was about 3/4 of an inch long and looked kind of like a centipede. It's body was translucent. It had "glued" together a few leaves...

Red Cherry Shrimp - Cheap? by Shagster
Anyone know where I can get some Red Cherry Shrimp.... Cheap? AZ Gardens has them for $4.95 each, and I've heard about some issues with them shipping carelessly, and charging a small FORTUNE.... Anywhere else? Troy

Toronto/lights/cheap by Richard Sexton
NOTE: I'm not selling lights. Please read this carefully. Somebody in the "tor.forsale" newsgroup (articles for sale in Toronto Canada) is trying to dispose of some HID lamps very cheaply. This is probably of interest to aquarists in the Toronto area. Posting to rec.aquaria.marketplace may not be...

Fluourite - Boy is my tank cloudy by Elaine T
I saw this fab 2 gal planted tank at LFS and it inspired me to yank the UGF from Squishy's 2 gallon hex and put on a Red Sea nanofilter and Fluorite substrate. Lighting is a 14 watt 5500K spiral compact flourescent that seems plenty bright over a tank this tiny. But OMG - I rinsed and rinsed my...

Two Tanks by Charles
I have two ten gallon tanks. One is generally choked with Vallesneria, in the other one I can not get Vals to grow at all, the roots die off. Same lights, same water (Hard tap water) same substrate (pottery clay beneath commercial aquarium gravel). The only difference that I can identify is that...

Sold as Aponogeton crispus, definately isn't by Cichlidiot
I recently purchased what had been sold as young Aponogeton crispus at a local, well-known store. At the store, these bulbs had very short leaves on them that I assumed at the time were due to the fact that almost all the substrate of the 10g tank they were kept in was covered in bulbs so I thought...

phosphate by spiral_72
I'm trying to rid my aquarium of excess phosphate. I have tested everything I put into my aquarium, peat, carbon, tap water, food, ect. The phosphates must be from the gravel/substrate. I'd always thought I had excellent cleaning practices. However, in an attempt to rid my tank of everything...

A veritable Tarzanian jungle if I don't say so myself. This is so much fun! http://aquaria.info/members/ervis/Feb27.html I still measure nitrates and phosphate so I can tailor my fert dosing to achieve the proper NPK ratio. I seem to get enough phosphate from fish food so I don't dose that. I...
