Emergent, fast growing plants are good for dealing with nitrates in the water. I'm using lucky bamboo successfully. Has anyone found any other effective emergent plants?
So I am wanting ONE parrot cichlid and I have a 16 gallon aqueon bowfront tank with everything in it and it has been up and running now for over a week. I was thinking about getting a juvenile which the ones I'm looking at ranges between 2-4 inches. I know they can get big AND that is why I have a 55 GALLON acrylic aquarium too...so I hope someone can give me some advice and if they can't get in the 16, can someone give me some other EXOTIC fish recommendations???
Hello All, I prepared a home made filter and it's running fine now.. I guess, someone might have tried here. I used a air pump, water bottle, a sponge! Anyone has any other idea what to use (karbonn filter or something) inside the bottle too? Thanks in advance.
For my fish I like to keep a tank with some live plants,driftwood and natrual looking hides such as rocks and caves. But I also house them with fish of their community but also ones who come from South and Central America. Such as convicts,angelfish,and also midas and blue front cichlids who make the beautiful hybrid parrot cichlid. Also I think a 30-40 gal tank should be to just hold one parrot cichlid or with other fish a 50-240 gal aquarium. I have sand as my substrate woth pebbles in it. It is ok to have sand but add a some pebbles for them to pick on.

my blood parrot is about 3 inches long and in a 5 gallon tank. he (or she) is one year old and seems happy, eats well. (pellets and bloodworms for occasional treat) the tank tests high for alkeline....what does that mean? when i vacuum and change out the 20%, it's always pretty clean. also, she just developed black patches which the pet store said could be scratches from digging. she is the only fish in the tank. thanks, input is appreciated.
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.
