  1. Hi! Resealing my 90 gallon metal frame aquarium. I want a super safe grade of industrial super strong sealant. Question is: - aquarium sealant OR - industrial strength food grade (FDA approved) sealant? (100% silicone!) Thanks soo much!! <3 ~Elaine Selene
  2. I'll have to get back to you, they arn't picking up. Maybe its too late today. I'll try tomorrow!
  3. I can help, but first we will need to know your tap parameters: pH, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, chlorine, and chloramine. Thanks Ok, I'll check it and get back to you in a few minutes... Thanks! Ok. I only have the general freshwater test kit... BUT I looked up the water report for my town... I hope that can help... What I found: Ammonia: 0 PH: 7.6 High range PH: 7.4 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 0 What the water report for the town says: Chlorine: 0.7 - 1.1984 ppm Nitrate: 0 - 0.232 ppm I don't have any idea for chloramine sadly. Thanks in advance!

  5. Hi there! Anyone out there use Seachem "Safe"? I bought it because I use soo much prime this is cheaper... I don't understand the instructions however... how much do I add to my tank??? This is what the instructions ONLINE say: (they updated them) Chlorine: use 1 measure to each 130 L (35 gallons*) of tap water (removes 1 ppm).. Chloramine: use 1 measure to each 100 L (25 gallons*) of tap water (removes 1 ppm). Ammonia: use 1 measure to each 32 L (8 gallons*) of tap water (removes 1 ppm). Do not overdose! 1 measure = 100 mg. I don't get it... I want to use it when I do water changes... I have a 55 gallon, 35 gallon, 29 gallon, and 20 gallon I'll be using it in... but it gives instructions for three different purposes? What should I use? Can someone tell me what to use for 50 gallons of tap water? Thank you very much!
  6. I must apologize for dropping off the face of the web. I started school again and got very sick. If I can I will come back to this. Again. Sorry.
  7. Note to everyone waiting for art. I just re-started photo school. I am now super busy and can't be as fast doing your art. I will get these all done eventually!!!
  8. I didn't know if this was 3 fish or more than that so I did three pictures, you tell me if there were more. Here they are...
  9. Thanks everyone. Will do as told... *feeling very defeated*
  10. OK so now my readings are PH: 7.5 Ammonia: 0.25 (ish) Nitrite: 0.25 ppm Nitrate: 2 ppm I have a question... my boyfriend says that what killed my tropical fish is that I did too much too frequent water changes (like 25% once a week?) so why are goldfish soo different? does anyone know?
  11. Seriously? 50 - 80% a week? DANG. Well according to my boyfriend (and his turtles) I am only supposed to do 20% every maybe 2 weeks... and never change all the water... and ummm... only clean the tank once ever 3 - 6 months? Not for goldfish. I do 80-100% WCs, and the frequence is every 5 days, although the 100% WCs are every 4 weeks. Drat. Maybe that's why my levels got soo high? This is not cool. I'll work on doing this. *sigh* I can start by doing 80% once a week. Then move up... I have to get into a habit. Oh well. Thanks for the info. Well, like I said. He was talking about what he heard about for his TURTLES. Maybe it is different? I'll look more into goldfish care from now on.

  13. Oh. Ok. Thank you. I'll post my new readings in a moment. I know 3 is usually the limit. But I have such high filtration on it I thought it would be O.K. I did a 20% or a little less last time. There is NOTHING else in the tank. You are actually perfectly filtered for that tank, not overfiltered. 10x the tank volume in gph is generally what we aim for with goldfish so with 550gph your filtration is spot on. Oh. I thought the 75 was good by itself. Hmm. Ok. Ok... so my BF told me wrong but I guess he was thinking about turtles...
