    Dealing with Detritus

    You can also put a clamp on the siphon hose to slow it. Small c-clamp works good.

    Kole tang ich

    Thanks to those that helped,but the tang has died. I think it was ammonia poisoning. I didn't test because I don't have the test kit. I was thinking my qt would be fine because it was running for more than 2 months. The fish was fine until I started prazi pro. I think removing the filter...

    Kole tang ich

    See a lot of looks but no replies. Tang is doing worse this morning, he's got a ripped tail to go with his ich. He's nodding side to side. Should I start cupramine with prazi running? Finish prazi's five days? Do water change run carbon to remove prazi? Is starting copper now going to kill him...

    90 gallon build with basement fish room.

    Got everything hooked up and passed the leak test! Took about an hour to dial in the bean going up and down the stairs. Is pretty much silent for the most part upstairs. Very excited to finally get some livestock. Here's a pic of the finished plumbing, I opted for flex pvc it made it so much easier.

    What to use on concrete floor in fish room

    I used a high solids epoxy, it goes on way thicker than the big box stuff. I used sherwin Williams hs 1000. I am very pleased with the result but, it was a lot of prep work and the fumes were lethal.

    90 gallon returns

    Hey everyone. Planning my return plumbing for my 90 build. I'll be coming up from the basement with 1" pvc controlled by a gate valve. I'll be shooting for about 10x turnover. So the question is do I use two returns, one in each corner? Also should I just leave pvc as is or use loc line? Is a 1"...

    Walling in the Fish Room

    I just completed a project close to this. I used regular drywall primed twice and two coats of bathroom paint. In areas where I thought splashing would occur I used the sheet goods you refered to. Fiberglass reinforced panels (FRP) bout $35 for a 4x8 sheet. Check out my build thread, I decided...
