  1. I don't think my crypts would like it too much with nothing in there. My tank is over run with them right now :O. I think my sand is honestly just a giant bundle of roots. I am terrified to transfer it all over once I finally set up the new tank.
  2. I think so from what I was able to find on it
  3. 🤣🤣🤣 school ends next month (1 more Semester in the fall and I’m DONE) and I should hopefully have more time
  4. I miss being on here. I need to make it more of a priority to stay active!
  5. A lower pH in the tank I am wondering could be from a lower level of kH not being able to keep it stable. That can be corrected using baking soda thankfully. If I remember correctly, a lower pH in the water when ammonia is present is better than when it is higher because the ammonia is less toxic in a lower pH. As long as that pH of 6.5 is stable, I would say probably best to leave it be while the fish are ill so as to not stress them out more with trying to adjust it to the proper level. What sort of media is in your filter? Anything for the good bacteria to grow on such as ceramic media? Are you able tp post the pictures of the fish here so we can see them as well please?
  6. Hmmm. I might do this idk. I really love the look of sand though, and it's one less surface o scrub algae on HAHAHA.
  7. That's all they gave you for it :O that's crazy! I'm dealing with a lemon Acura. I am about ready to get lawyered up. It's been four months of torture and back and forth to the dealer that is an hour away. They already had it for 16 days but "couldn't verify" the issues even though I have documented many videos and pictures. I am waiting to hear when the district parts and service manager will be back again to see it. I have missed at least 3 college lectures now because of this not to mention I am racking up miles driving there.

  9. Oh I'm sure!! I can't even imagine. I have a few friends that are nurses and their schedules are crazy with long hours. I've also been dealing with the car from hell for the idk 4th year in a row now. No matter what car I get they all have issues and I'm literally going insane. It is only month 4 with this car and it's been broken since I pulled into my driveway with it.
  10. I would also maybe suggest removing the gravel, or at least make a much thinner layer of it. Doing that will make cleaning 10x easier for you
  11. Of course you are welcome!! Welcome back here, I am trying to be more active on here again myself .
  12. I have been so bad with my maintenance on my tank it's tough finding motivation to clean it when I am bogged down with assignments and working 6 days a week. Not to mention one of those days is 6 hours of fish tank cleaning at my local pet store LOL.
  13. yeah, I am not sure where they all went either, just sort of stopped posting :(. I feel that with my aquaclear haha! That impeller/motor are def on their last legs. The sand keeps killing the impellers and they never want to start back up again when it turns off. Granted, that motor is 11 year old haha. I have replaced the impeller twice before as well. I am hoping with the wider tank once I set up my 75, that will help it a bit and I will replace the impeller again.
  14. same here. With school and work, it's killer right now.
