  3. So as the title says, I think something is wrong with Stinky. For a little while he has been sitting in the corner of the driftwood. And I just noticed that he now has a couple of bumps on his face one on his upper lip and on on his, I guess it would be his nostril. He gets excited when it is time to eat and does swim around at times, although he is not the most graceful because he has a Nemo fin. But he just sits like this most of the day "/
  4. When I set up a betta tank (a 10 gallon) I am planning on using a AquaClear 20. I also want some cherry shrimp in the tank so I want a sponge on the intake. I have searched various online stores but have not seen a sponge for a AC filter. Are there a any specifically made for them? Or is a diy thing the best option? Also, do I need a mechanical media in the actual filter if I have the sponge on the intake? Thanks
  5. So I just got a old 10 gallon tank from a friend and wanted to try my hand at a planted betta tank. What do I need to make a happy environment for a betta? Would a AquaClear 20 dialed all the way down be too strongish of a current? What tank mates would be ok? Thanks in advance.
  6. I recently got a nerite and wanted to get cuttlefish bone for it but I don't know the most beneficial way to use it. Does it actually help a snails shell? I have read that some people crush it and dissolve it just to have it in the water. Most things I has read is just to weigh down a square and put it in the tank. Here are a few pics of Sully Sorry fore the huge pics.
  7. Can I put filter floss in the intake tube of my AC 70? Or will that burn out the motor quicker?
  8. I'm looking for a good fish store in the Houston area, does anyone know of one? I have been to a couple decent ones and one really bad one. Thanks
  9. Can koi live peacefully with fancy goldfish, or will the fancies get picked on? Or does it really depend on the temperament of the fish?
  10. Even though it is a canister? I have been told that it doesn't need to be 10gph per gallon since it has so much more filtration.
  11. I want to get a 55 gallon soon and want to figure out the setup before I actually purchase them. I was thinking about getting this canister filter http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=3578%203579%203580%2019310&pcatid=19310 the EFU-45 model. Would 55 gallons be big enough for 3 fish? We are thinking a ranchu, a oranda, and a telescope. Thanks.
