    This is an unusual size and shape: 10x20x20 tall. The foot print is the same as a standard 10, but it is twice as tall. It has slow leak in one of the corner seams about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom. It would make a good terrarium for tall plants or climbing animals. Send me a PM if interested and I will send you my address for pick up. It goes in the trash if no one wants it.

    The water temperature does not change quickly like air temperature, so what you get is something in the middle between day and night time air temperature. But as the summer progresses, the water temperature slowly goes up until it can reach levels that stress the fish.

    Michael replied to a thread Summer Tubs in Breeding
    The biggest problem I've had with summer tubs is temperature. In full sun they really get too hot. Morning sun and afternoon shade is much better, or dappled shade under trees. This applies to tubs with aquarium species of fish and plants. If you want to grow water lilies, then full sun is best.

    Michael replied to a thread Anubias in Aquarium Plants
    Try this page on Flow Grow: https://www.flowgrow.de/db/aquaticplants?filter%5Bgenus%5D=18 Flow Grow is really good, and also helps to sort out all the obsolete and erroneous names. Classification of anubias is a mess! But you sound like you have a good collection already. Have you tried any bucephalandra? They like conditions similar to anubias, but have very different color range. DFW-APC almost always has some a door prizes at...

    Michael replied to a thread Fish in a Fountain? in Tank Setups
    This can work, assuming water chemistry and temperature are appropriate. Being in the shade really helps in the summer. How large is the fountain basin? The greater the volume of water, the more stable it will be.

    This is actually quite common in cold weather. Cold water can dissolve more gas than warm water--this is why dissolved oxygen decreases as the temperature goes up. When the cold water warms and is released from the pressure in the pipes. the gases come out of solution and form tiny bubbles. "Tiny bubbles, tiny bubbles, in the wine, make me feel happy, make me feel fine." Assuming this is what is happening, a small water change should not...

    will a lily do well with duckweed? Yes does it need still water or water movement to do best? Still water or very gentle movement is best. will mosquito fish or another fish do well in a still water environment for keeping bugs & mosquitos down? Mosquito fish tolerate the widest range of conditions, but guppies, Endler's, and even bettas will work.
