  1. Aw, poor Fifi....I hope she gets better soon!
  2. Lol, yes Aubrey...the requisite pics as soon as I am done fiddling with the tank.
  3. Ok placed sand in the tank after rinsing a lot and everything looks good. Took forever to clean the tank, the water changer did not fit on my kitchen sink, but since I started I wanted to finish. I'll look for an adapter another day. Does anyone know how long to boil the rocks for? Just til boiling...5 mins...10 mins...? I also had a silk plant that I didn't like before with Comet since he was so big, but I think I am going to cut it in half, and place half on one side and half on the other.
  4. I am so very sorry for your loss Dave. She was beautiful.
  5. Well, duh, I skimmed over that and didn't realize that's what it meant. Stupid ADD and the distraction of all the pretty fish! lol
  6. This is what my rocks look like: Ok, I wasn't sure about the TMS becuase it appears finer than what some people describe. So what is the difference between the Instant Aquarium and the Super Naturals that I have?
  7. Oh, never thought to do that! Looks fabulous!
  8. Hi! I'm in the process of changing my tank completely over. I have gravel that I am getting rid of thankfully, I dislike it immensely. I have read about river rocks and have some from Michaels Craft store that I used as a base for my Tillandsia and I have extra. I was wondering if I can use the bigger ones as accent rocks? Also I was looking into getting the CaribSea Tahitian Moon Sand and actually picked up a bag, but now I am not sure if it's the right one. I picked up The CarbSea Super Naturals where Tahitian Moon is checked off on the back (I am assuming now it is referring to color?). But there was also CaribSea Instant Aquarium in a black color, I did not pick up that bag to look at it as I thought I had the correct one.
  9. I bought an Aqueon Water Changer today because lugging buckets was not safe for me. Can I use that to empty the water with bleach rather than bring the tank to the tub? And just keep filling and emptying to rinse, rinse, rinse?
  10. Ok, so I can clean the tank with a bleach solution (did I read somewhere it's a 19:1 ratio? 19 parts water, 1 part bleach?). I plan on throwing out the gravel and fake plant. Do I just clean the bubbler (airstone) in a vinegar solution? Filter media goes in a bucket of tank water, what about the HOB filter housing? Bleach, no bleach...just give it a good scrubbing? After bleaching the tank, let some Prime sit in it a bit, put everything back together with fresh Primed water and test? Thanks for your patience and help.
  11. I don't have ammonia, is it just regular plain ammonia you can get in the supermarket? Of course not the sudsy kind. The tank has had no fish in it since Thursday and since we are going away the week after next, I hadn't planned on getting any fish until after we returned after the 11th.
