Help me Design My Mayan Temple Loach Tank Concept

My mom makes these really cool pottery tank ornaments and they look really good in her tank. I use autocad in my profession so I actually designed a whole tank setup looking like Ancient Mayan ruins about 6 months ago. Now I believe I am going to change the design a little for more space and center ...

Re: Stray Voltage: Grounding Rod or GFCI Experience?

Well I removed the electrical equipment about a day and a half ago. But i still feel a sting in the water on my finger. The sting is only when i have a hang nail. It is a mild sting that goes away after about a second. This is not the case if there is no hang nail, I feel no sting. I am trying to ob...

Re: Stray Voltage: Grounding Rod or GFCI Experience?

Ok I will test everything. It is either the two jetheads or the heater element built into the canister intake. These are aquaclear jet heads 70's and the heater attachment attaches directly to the intake on the rena fillstar. Im going to clean the tank and unplug the jetheads for now and see if this...

Tiger Loaches

They never have these near me. I found them for 5 bux each about a half mile from my house. There were about 8 of them. I just can't setup another tank I have too many going. I wish I could buy all 8 of them. Each one was about 4" long as well. Wow! SaD. If you live in florida and are interested pri...

Stray Voltage: Grounding Rod or GFCI Experience?

So for the last 6 months or so I have had this striata that has been clamping its fins. No other fish in this tank have had symptoms. I thought it was a parasitic infection on the skin. I treated several treatments over the course of 6 months that did not help the fish. However, when placed in a qt ...

Re: loach pyramid

its still a hit. the bottom middle hole actually has a few clowns piled on top of some striatas but they are burried. http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g154/dantecornish/IMG_9836.jpg if you look closely, the very small middle hole where the 3" pvc pipes meet, there is a striata sleeping in there. i ...

Re: EMERGENCY HELP!

the striata is still clamping his fins. its been day 7 of tmp sulfa treatment. im going to filter out this treatment after 10 days. i don't see any signs of improvement. wondering if this might be some kind of external parasite. i witnessed the striata scraping on the sides a little today.

Re: Death of Two Loaches

i thought maracyn 2 did effect the filter bacteria? i had a 10 gallon full of glass fish and rasboras die when i treated with maracyn 2. im scared to use it on my loach tank.

Re: EMERGENCY HELP!

I wonder if the lowered feeding days while i was out of town had anything to do with it. i have been...
