    Starting A New Saltwater Tank. Documenting The Process

    I would kinda like to try again, considering I still have tons of salt, but Rocket Pop seems happy in the 20 long

    Koi Clay?

    My decent little LFS has never heard of koi clay. I decided to just order it off the website. Hopefully it'll do my tank some good. I'm ever going to share it with my other friends. They have a 90 and a 120 goldfish tank!

    Koi Clay?

    Well, I'm now excited to give this a try! There is a pond store not far from me, so I'll check there first before I try online. ^.^ Thanks for so many thoughts

    Where can you find that? I checked amazon.... about to try PetSmart (I have a second job there so it'd be 15% off)

    Koi Clay?

    Beat me to my question. So, in general it would be something good for them? I want to try and see what happens when I use it. I like the idea of the aerators distributing the clay. I have spray bars and 2 aerators so I think it'll get distributed pretty well... I really appreciate the input on this. I'm always looking for new things to add that'll help the goldfish

    Does it clear your water? I read it makes your goldfish colors pop as well,.,, Kinda be nice to see my calico's colors more vibrant

    Koi Clay?

    It's added directly to the water or through the filter? Have you tried it? I'm curious and now a couple of my friends who I converted to Goldfish are as well.. ^.^
  8. I've been browsing around the forums and web and have come across something I've never seen or even heard of! Can anybody help me understand what Koi Clay is used for in the aquarium? I've found some on amazon but nobody has put it in an aquarium... I appreciate any input on this item.

    This is what it looks like converted. I plan on adding more plants. Note the driftwood in back. It extends to the top of the tank with the filter behind it to keep flow low.

    Starting A New Saltwater Tank. Documenting The Process

    So, our heater broke in our saltwater tank and the temp dropped to 60ish. We slowly tried to warm the water up, but the Firefish, Fred, died. We have decided to take a break from this Saltwater endeavor. Nano tanks are much harder to maintain then larger ones. I turned this tank into a freshwater tank for the Betta fish we have named Rocket Pop. He has the 20 long to himself with an assassin snail, John Wilkes Booth. You can. contrary to popular belief, reuse the substrate. In our case it's sand. You need to drain the tank, then refill it while stirring the sand around. Repeat this process until you salinity reading is 0. I even used test strips that test both salt and freshwater. I used this because if there was any salt in the water, one of the readings wouldn't have shown. This process took a long time and several fillings and emptyings. The water becomes VERY cloudy but will dissipate in a day or so. I used a cycled sponge filter for his tank, warmed the water, tossed in pest snails to ensure water was good, then added him. He is a VERY happy Betta. Being from Walmart he has his problems but he's an awesome little guy. I'll post a pic when I can.
