My tank is still cycling after more than 3 weeks. I am trying to be patient, but i want to have a clear tank. I have added beneficial bacteria, done 15% water changes every other day, and still cloudy. What elase can i do to clear things up, or am i in too much of a hurry?
My 4 month tank i got on the17 Th of December 2011 and there is really bad brown algae...on the plants especially...on the back inst so bad .My tank gets enough light so i don't know what the problem is...
I've never been fond of Pink Kissing Gouramis. I owned a pair that fought endlessly and never ate in my presence. I studied up on them and concluded that they were exceptionally poor choices for fish-keeping because their natural diet is almost exclusively algae, something I don't have in abundance. They were quite large at 6 years of age and not much to look at. I donated them to my doctor's office aquarium, a huge tank where algae runs rampant.
I am trying to set up my new bigger tank for my parrots and other fish. We washed the new stones thoroughly and filled up, put the new filter in, added the filter aid and it was nice and clear for about a day. However, just before we were about to add the fish, it went really cloudy. We have done some water changes, but it is still cloudy. We are desperate to add our parrots to their new home but obviously it needs to be clear first. Any ideas ?
I was looking atmy tank recently and i noticed that there was tan/brown algae growing on my plants and caves and i was just wondering if this was good or harmful and what i should do
Let me start this off by saying I am not a novice when it comes to aquariums but I am stumped!! I have a 46 gal aquarium with 3 small BPs in it. Previously this was my fancy goldfish tank but I got tired of cleaning all the time. I sold the goldfish, let the tank cycle for 2 weeks before I put the new fish in. I did not remove all the water and start over with the tank, just removed 23% when I vacuamed the gravel. The tank was clear for the first two weeks of having the BPs but now it is cloudy and I cannot get it clear. I have done another partial water
Yeah! I chose to 'not freeze' but try Ick treatment, Quick Cure, as I had nothing to lose. Didn't think Leo would make it very much longer. Within 3 hours he was swimming as usual, think he even started eating blood worms.
Fish store insists to not go over 82 degrees in the tank and to be honest am leery of going higher.'
Thanks to all who responded. Leo is alive and kicking at 10 years..................it wasn't old age, just ick.
Okay so ive been reading up on algae control..but i have a quaestion of my own
Those "Algae Buddies" tablets are they worth it in a parrot tank? Ive used them before in my goldfish tank and it worked wonders but im a little afraid to drop them in with Sid and Nancy. Please let me know what you think, Thank you tremendously!!
