Upgrading to a new tank and need advice. Wet/dry sump with bio balls down below in 29 gallon and overflow sponge filter.
Love my fish and I am upgrading to a 90 gallon with wet/dry sump eith bio balls and sponge filter ( lower tank for sum is 30 gallon) and beautiful set up.
I currently have two large blood red parrots 6 years old in 46 gallon tank with bio wheel and rock substrate. I keep an extra clean tank and change water frequently. I just want it to be a good adjustment.
I would like a little help deciding if my purchase of 2 sweet black baby blood parrots was a mistake , I really would like to keep them.
I was told that my 36x15x20 tank which is 47 gallon acrylic would be large enough for them as adults,
but after going online and reading posts on different web sites it seems that a 55 gallon is the smallest size you should have to house them. I would really like your help on this.
hi im hoping to find out whether or not my tank is suitable for my parrot fish? i have 3 parrot fish in a 4 feet tank, alonf with 2 oscars and 3 malawis. im from south africa and i might want to add more parrots to bring in more colour in the tank? also, how can I enhance their colours? and will there be a possibility that I can breed with them? i am new to all of this.
I am writing in today because I do not know if I should put in a light in the tank. It is attached to the top of the tank already and is it bad if I do not have the light on for a couple ôf days! Well let's hope so because it has not been on for a few days because of the outlet shortage which has been resolved.
Thanks for all your help
No fish yet, want a BP, cycling tank for 10 days now and PH is stuck at 8.4, hasnt changed since day 1.
I have used the stress zyme and water conditioner, then 2 days ago went with ph down due to a suggestion by the aquagirl at the store. (dumb me) had i known it was only battery acid, i would have came here first.
Isn't 8.4 too high for any fish, and, how can I naturally get it down?
I read doing a water change with distilled water will help as well as getting some driftwood.
I have a question about a Fluval 305 filter. I recently upgraded to a 55 gallon tank for my parrot cichlid. I have had him for about 4-5 years now and he grew from being a little puny 2 inch fish getting chased by a gourami to a 6 inch gorilla that rearranges the tank on me.
I posted a topic 2 weeks ago, titled "Heartbroken". I had an unexplained Nitrite spike in my established tank (running for 4-5 years) and lost my biggest BP Cichlid. I thought my filter had died.... I found out a week later that it probably was not the filter after all..........
