lizam posted a topic in Tanks and EquipmentHi! I am just wondering if anyone has this light and if they like it? I have read some reviews on amazon. I am setting up another goldfish tank and I am going bare bottom for now. This tank will be in my bedroom so I thought having a remote would be handy Eventually I might want to add some live plants in containers and I am wondering if this works? What I don't want is a lot of algae
larryngu posted a topic in Tanks and EquipmentShare any knowledge you know on the subject of buying used tanks and equipment. 1) Where to look ? 2) What questions to ask? 3) What to look out for? 4) What you shouldn't buy used? 5) How not to get scammed. I know nothing on the subject.
Morgan'sMiracles posted a topic in Tanks and EquipmentWhat equipment is mandatory for a healthy goldfish? I'm making a list so I can progressively purchase the items as I get paid. So far what I've got is; -30+ gallon aquarium -Bubbler (wand or ornament) -air pump -Filter (10x GPH, 2x the size) -heater (to keep temperature stable during winter and wc) -frozen bloodworms -veggies -1/2 good quality pellet foods Am I missing anything? I want my list to be completely complete and thoroughly thorough. As always, thanks for all the help!
The stand was not in very good shape and needed some cleaning. I also put a shelf in it to keep things a bit more organized. I also used my DIY method of attaching the stand to the wall in case of earthquake. http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/88234-diy-earthquake-brace-for-tank-stand/page__fromsearch__1 I ordered a fluval 405 filter, but decided to return it and make do with the Power Filter 3 and the fluval 204. This will provide 465 gph, which should be enough given that one of the filters is a canister. I've never set up a canister before. Luckily the guy I bought it from showed me how to do it. I set it up about a week ago and ran it on the old tank with some old media mixed in with the new. I hope this will jumpstart the cycle a bit. Then I placed the tank on the stand and got ready to fill it. The HOB filter didn't work at first, so I had to take it all apart and start it up again. Luckily it started on the third try. It's pretty noisy right now. I hope it gunks up quickly and gets quieter soon. The fluval is quiet and seems to work like dream. The brown saucers are the planters where I'll put the plants. I added Nutrifin Cycle and some ammonia to feed the cycle. I hope to get good test results in a few days and move Fluffy over to the new tank on Monday. New fish on Tuesday!!!! (if all goes well) Full tank shot: Thanks for watching!
