  1. Good luck! I think its something that may be able to be achieved. I somewhat achieved it, but i took lots of time and work. You need a big tank, lots of aquatic plants and lots of terrestrial tanks and very few fish. And by few i mean like two...maybe three....depending on the species you are wanting to go with.
  2. Established tank, time to give back!

    That carpet is amazing!!
  3. Large air pumps for 100+g tanks

    Id probably get a commercial one. Then you could use one pump for all your tanks in that general area. You would just need a lot of airline tubing =]
  4. Veiltail Shubunkin?

    I love love bristols! When i get my 100g tank someday that is one i am considering getting. They looks so graceful!
  5. AquaAurora's Goldfish MTS Chronicles

    Just read thru! Your tank is looking great!! You make me want to get rid of all my plants and just do the water sprite!! It looks so clean! But i do love my crypts!

  7. I think the denser planted tank you have the higher survival rate. In the current tank i have going now i might actually have a higher survival rate on their own. My tank is pretty dense and the crypts seem to be slowly dominating the tank. In your tank right now id say it would be slim but strange things happen. Pics of my tank...its always dirty looking and the glass is terrible =/ LOL. Ill tank a few pics soon just for you!!
  8. Most of the time if goldfish breed in tank they end up eating most of the eggs....then if some hatch then they have to compete with filters, parents and water conditions. Im my experience unless you save the eggs nothing really comes about. Mine spawned multiple times and i only dealt with fry once....when i pulled the eggs out and attempted to have fry.
  9. HOB Algae Scrubber idea

    Im very interested!!! I have wanted one for a long while but dont have a good place for one.
  10. Freaking out canister leak!

    I use food safe lubricant on my seals. I once had the same problem but my seal ring was just fine. I havent had the problem since.
  11. Some of My DIYs

    Is that a koi betta in that tank??
  12. Plant for goldfish

    My fish ate a little bit of everything, even anubias. I feel that in addition to planting heavy what you feed is also important. Try to feed them small meals often. Feed them a balanced diet too. Offering them a couple kinds of food/ types of food is good. I feed repashy, hikari, kens pellets and fresh kale. Having fresh veggies in the tank, they are more likely to want to eat those than bitter plants.
  13. What Aquasoil Should I Get?

    Thats a reasonable answer. However the kind of snail that im guessing you have probably don't eat plants. The chances of you getting away without having snails in a planted aquarium are rare. You will need to disinfect all of your plants. Uprooting and messing with them will probably hurt them even more, but you wont get the eggsacks without removing and disinfecting. Anytime you get new plants you will need to disinfect and probably QT them to make sure you got all the creatures. If you think the snails are eating your plants maybe your plants are not doing well to begin with...they eat decaying plants. I have ramshorn, pond snails and MTS in my tank and my live, doing well plants dont get eaten. You might be able to ROAK them to other people who do want them. For some reason i have a hard time keeping a decent population of ramshorn and pond snails. I think my MTS out compete them. Good luck!
  14. I second finnex stingrays. I bought my first finnex fixture for my 40B, a planted + 24/7 and i love it. The stingrays get great reviews on TPT and i would choose that for my next tank.
  15. What Aquasoil Should I Get?

    Whats wrong with snails? Snails are a vital part of an ecosystem, which is essentially what you are trying to create. They do more good than harm. Keep them in mind, they eat dead/ decaying plant matter for you and left over food.
