A new food

Along with their usual pellets or flakes or Repashy soilent green and also grub pie, l have started giving my Weather loaches and also my pictus catfish some strips of raw minced beef, they absolutely love it, the gourami eats it from my fingers.
Anyone else feed raw..

Re: Black Algae

Oh thanks for that suggestion, I didn't really want to increase the bio load but some good cleaners would certainly be useful. The tank is unheated so tends to be whatever the ambient temperature is which at the moment is 79F. How many would I need for 4ft tank, would 3 be enough? would they be OK w...

Black Algae

Re: How to clean sand substrate ?

If you don't move the sand around won't you get anaerobic bacteria in it? I also have a large Fluval interior filter and sand gets sucked into the bottom of that, I hate sand but it bugs me that the loaches would probably prefer it.

Re: River Flow - 5ft Bookshelf Aquarium

Here are another couple of ways to use the Repashy Soilent green food, I like the one where you make it in a tub and then cut it up into pieces, you can then freeze these.
