    I’m going to start breeding fish, but I’d like to get used to knowing how to maintain the tank and care for the fry before I put out good money to buy the best. I’ve got a 40 gallon and two 20 gallon long tanks. I’m interested in anything I could breed there; especially shrimp. I’ve also started breeding brine shrimp. Here in a few months I intend to start selling “high quality” feeders. Basically regularly-priced feeders but with a...

    Did you mix with something else, or just blend and freeze?

    It has been a long process. Once I have the Frontosa's in the tank, it will be about 6 months with no fish, other than the Petricola Catfish. I have the other reactors in the filter, but I have them running with no media. Unfortunately due to the size of the filter and my backup water source, I really don't have the room to store them. I have a 27 gallon tote under my tank I have filled with water with an air pump attached to it, so I...

    It is nice to see someone take the long and slow approach. Do you have the media reactors in and sitting dormant or are they running just no media?

    This is what I consider to be one of the "good ones". So far, I pulled out 5 that look more like culls. That's $20 worth. There may be a couple more to come out.

    I have a 75 that is severely over planted, with probably more fish than I should have. I have never had a problem, but then I have an aquatop pH 35 power head on the tank and it blows pretty hard.

    Just got back from the auction...got up a 4 am to start bagging fish to leave by 6:30...so tired. Not a very large auction compared to some others and the turn out was pretty low but Houston had some serious rain and storms in the morning so that may have done some to keep people away.

    Received my Media Reactors this past Friday and with these items, the components are complete. Took me a little bit of time, but was able to install all three of them. Currently, only running one of the reactors with carbon, but the other two I have is for backup. Running these units off my main pump and it has plenty of power to not slow down the flow to the main tank. Shooting for November 10th to purchase some Frontosas with the tank...

    It would definitely help the fish. And you could set the timer to turn the air off a couple of hours before the lights come on. That way you would still get some build up of natural CO2, but not a whole night's worth. I considered doing this in my tank with the problem, but opted to use a little skimmer instead. It is an open top tank, and the skimmer keeps the water surface clean while giving some more flow.

    what you have pictured is definitely a cull. it seems to look more like a tiger shrimp vs. a blue diamond. What do the rest of the group look like that you bought.

    I don't want to blow out so much CO2 that the plants fail to thrive, but do you think an air pump on a timer would help?

    I’ve got an assassin snail. If I find him, he’s all yours. I can’t keep him. He’s too powerful.

    I've had a similar problem of fish (including Boeseman's rainbowfish) developing respiratory distress overnight in a heavily planted tank. I don't know if the pH was a factor, but when I increased water flow and aeration at night the problem was solved. The tank has a large fish population.
