  1. I have a 30g biocube with Valentini puffer. I really want to add a Halloween hermit because I’m just fascinated by them, but I’m afraid the puffer will bother it. I have about 5 other smaller hermit crabs in there and he doesn’t touch them. He even leaves most of the snails alone. What do you guys think?
  2. Is this Ich?

    Got my first fish today in my Biocube 29. It's a very small Valentini puffer. He's been doing great all day and ate very easily. I guess I'm just VERY paranoid and I see this one white dot and my mind goes instantly to ich. I don't know I could just be totally crazy but what do you guys think.
  3. Should I change out my filter floss now?

    So if I change it will anything happen to my bacteria
  4. Newly Cycled Biocube29 (took a month) no fish yet (but looking too add fish very soon). I have an intank media basket with only filter floss on the top shelf right now, haven't added media yet but will soon and my filter floss is pretty used up by now. The water is all the way up to the bottom of the floss. Should I change this out now? I'm not exactly sure what will happen with my bacteria. Will this disturb the beneficial bacteria? Should I wait to add fish first?
  5. Cycling problems

    I think there is a bacerteria bloom in my tank. It is very cloudy and white...is this a problem? By the way I haven't added any fish, changed any filter floss, haven't added any media, I haven't touched the tank for a a couple of days. Do i need to do a big water change or something or change the filter floss? Not exactly sure how this happened
  6. Cloudy aquarium water

    Do I have to do anything about it?
  7. Cloudy aquarium water

    White. So it's bacterial, but what exactly is going on? Should I be concerned or is this normal?
  8. Cloudy aquarium water

    Finished fishless cycling my Biocube 29 a couple of days ago (took about a month) and letting the tank stabilize. Just tested my water and Amonia- 0, Nitrite- 0 and Nitrate- 10. Yesterday I noticed the water was a bit cloudy but nothing to worry about. Today the water is very cloudy (and I know for sure it isn't kicked up sand). Is this some kind of bacteria bloom? Should i be worried or do anything about it?

  10. Cycling problems

    Sounds good!
  11. Cycling problems

    During this week do I have to do anything with the tank besides test it to see if everything is doing fine? Will Nitrates drop? How big of a water change?
  12. Cycling problems

    Just did a 90% water change about 2 hours ago. Nitrite is at 0, Ammonia is at 0 and Nitrate is at 10...but pH is way too low at around 7.8 (maybe even a bit lower). What do I do to get this higher? Is it safe to add fish with pH at this level? Also am I done with my cycle and ready to add fish? Everything looks great except for my pH which is pretty low. Also when do I add my media (Chemipure and Purigen) Now?
  13. Tank Cycled? Low pH

    Alright sounds good to me! I just want to make sure that my fish won't be harmed by low pH. Am I all good to go to add my fish?
  14. New setup - Is this algea ?

    Are ou cycling right now? Fish or fishless cycle, you shouldn't have your tank lights on during the cycling process; this is most likely why you are seeing algae. If it keeps growing without your lights on...then you might be dealing with something different but it looks like algae to me in the first pic. If you are cycling, scrubbing it off can disturb the cycle, but since you're not too far into it, I don't see why not. But try not to have your lights on for too long. GOOD LUCK!!!
  15. Tank Cycled? Low pH

    Just did a 90% water change about 2 hours ago. Nitrite is at 0, Ammonia is at 0 and Nitrate is at 10...but pH is way too low at around 7.8 (maybe even a bit lower). I've been using the API buffer max for the past several days but it hasn't done anything. What do I do to get this higher? Also am I done with my cycle and ready to add fish? Everything looks great except for my pH which is pretty low. Also when do I add my media (Chemipure and Purigen) Now?
