    So because of my silicone breach, I went out and bought a new tank and I decided to upgrade to a 29 gallon tank. To get my 24 inch light to fit on the 30 inch long new tank I took 1 inch by 1 inch by 19 feet wooden blocks and cut them to fit the rim of the tank and set the light on those. I...

    Here are the photos I just took of the tank inhabitants. Don't think im going to add anymore other than refresh my cleaner crew. All water has been stable with no fluctuations. The biological filter is unreal at how well it works. I stopped using my protein skimmer back in the fall as it...

    So we have two tetras swimming around in there, seemingly pretty happy. I tested the water yesterday and it still appears that there are Nitrites (.5ish) and my Nitrates are right around 20. This tank has been set up since Christmas day, is it time for a water change? If so how much? If it is...

    Ok, well its only major because I took out rock! :eek: I know its surprising, but I just noticed that my tank wasn't as healthy as it was... so I know it couldn't be not enough rock, because i had 85 pounds in a 55... so I decided that there was too much and i took some out (guessing around...
