    1 or 2 Jaebo SOW-4

    Question on wavemaker with pump

    I've always used Hydor Koralia and tired of replacing impellar so I'm looking for a wavemaker with pumps. Is there a wavemaker with pumps that ramp up and down without stopping the impeller?

    Cycling- Water changes

    That exactly what I was thinking, not so much as for ammonia and nitrite as that will cycle out and balance but more so for keeping nitrate down to acceptable level so it doesn't build up by the time cycle end.

    Cycling- Water changes

    Just curious if you are suppose to change water during the cycling period, when all you are doing is using dried fish food flakes? I have always never change water during this time of cycling, but thinking I might this time. I'm using very little foods to kick start this.

    Icecap K1-130 or Bubble Magus Curve 5

    For all who have looked at this post and no response, I decided to go with the Bubble Magus. The pump that comes with it is a Rock SP-1000. What made me decide on this is that they say the pump can be easily replace if anything should go wrong. I don't know about the Icecap pump. One of the...

    Opinions On Copper Treatment?

    I have a fire fish dart fish and a lamarck angel in a 20 gal QT tank for the last 5 weeks. These two fish has lived with 8 balloon mollies that lives in the QT all the time.

    Will Popeye Go Away?

    I have had a Lemark Angel in my QT tank for 4 weeks now with popeye and has not shown any improvement. The popeye showed up after having the angel for 1 week.

    Popeyes and Epsom Salt?

    I will be using Furnan-2 because of the vendor I ordered from had it in the small pack as the Maracyn and Maracyn 2 was only available in a large pack which I didn't need. I will give my angel another week to see how she does, by then the furnan willbe here.

    Aust. Harlequin Tuskfish and Lemarck Angel

    I have a 75 gal fowlr tank that house a 6" Magnificent Foxface and a 5 1/2" Aust. Harlequin Tuskfish. I bought a 3 1/2 - 4" Lemarck Angel that will be going in this fowlr tank after the QT period. My question is do you think on the overall average that the Aust. HT will bother the Lemarck angel?
