Re: My DIY 125g Clown Loach Aquarium Stand

Looks great! I like the barn doors! Do they slide?

Re: WOOOOHOOOOO Seachem Matrix

I did do the second dose yesterday. And yes, the last two days, the skinny guys have become much more active.

Re: WOOOOHOOOOO Seachem Matrix

It’s 2 sids that are skinny.
And thanks. I should have dosed the quarantine with Prazipro today for a second round of treatment but didn’t get to it.
So maybe I’ll just order the Kusuri and do that instead.
My Tiger barbs are little piggies lol!

Re: WOOOOHOOOOO Seachem Matrix

Ughh. Do you have nitrates in your tap water? My well water was so variable which is why we purchased the under the sink nitrate filter. It was a losing battle to try to keep nitrates low when I was putting water with 10, 20 or even 30 ppm back into the tank. I think we are going to install a small ...

Re: Talk to me of sidthimunki

And here’s my remaining Dario with a photo bomb by one of the sids. Excuse the pea gravel. I had originally planned this tank as a quarantine for more barbs.

Re: Talk to me of sidthimunki

Let me know if the photo appears sideways again lol! I’ll try to figure out why. I took this about 2 weeks ago. Except for the smallest 2, they are noticeably larger and fatter. I discovered they love the shrimp pellets!

Re: Talk to me of sidthimunki

I’ve had the little guys in quarantine for 3 weeks now. I absolutely love them! I also did purchase the Darios. But I only have 1 left. 🙁🙁 I had a water disaster that I described in Fran’s matrix thread. Let’s just say, I need to re evaluate my water source and as of right now, I am not using my wel...

Re: WOOOOHOOOOO Seachem Matrix

But I still didn’t yet link to the water and thought there was something wrong in the 29 g tank. I had recently moved my rescue Tiger barbs (I got back into fish keeping over a year ago when a friend’s father passed leaving a whole condo full of fish tanks) out of that tank. The last couple of month...

Re: WOOOOHOOOOO Seachem Matrix

Well. I warned it is a long story lol! But I’m procrastinating going out in the pouring rain to feed my horses! First, my understanding of the bottled purified water is that it is RO water with some minerals added back in. I have been testing everything lately with my API kits and it tests as acidic...

Re: DISSOLVED OXYGEN TEST KITS

Or maybe we could discuss what we should be doing to ensure our tanks are adequately oxygenated?

Re: WOOOOHOOOOO Seachem Matrix

I love your videos! What size is your tank again? I have a 75 that is currently stocked with 3 Tiger barbs and 5 golden diamond barbs. I need to add to both those schools and was thinking about cherry barbs also. I was originally looking for Histrionicas for the 75 but my LFS had the Darios and they...

Re: WOOOOHOOOOO Seachem Matrix

It is a pain to open those canisters! Mine has only been running since July and I added the pads in September maybe? I need to check my notes. So I don’t know if I need to replace them. I should inquire the next time I’m at my LFS. I’m having major source water issues right now. I’m thinking my well...

Re: WOOOOHOOOOO Seachem Matrix

Thanks for the review!
I have Professional Blue nitrate reducer pads in my Fluval 406. The same as your experience, it took several weeks to see a decrease.
So I’m about to add them to the HOB on my 40g also.
