Re: Auto Water Change System (Chemillizer HN 55)

What type of controller/solenoid valve are you using? They're the only pieces not labeled in the diagram. Thanks.

Re: Auto Water Change System (Chemillizer HN 55)

Very nice setup. Thanks for sharing. I've been thinking about this for some time now. The bigger the fishroom gets, the less manageable it becomes.

Dovii RED EYE

I noticed this yesterday. My large male dovii's right eye is completely red . He appears to still see just fine with it (still attacking me through the glass when I'm on that side) but it's really freaky. Has anyone ever seen this before? Any clue what the problem is? I'm guessing it's a burst 'bloo...

Amphilophus citrinellus complex questions

I'm trying to make sense of A. sagittae, A. amarillo, and A. xiloaensis. From what I can tell, they pretty much resemble A. citrinellus or labiatus. What are the differences? What makes a sagittae a sagittae, etc? Is it simply collection point? Do they all grow to about the same size as citrinellus,...

Re: Nandopsis tetracanthus question

It's been about 10 days now. He seems hungry, but he seems to spit everything out. Perhaps I'll try relocating him to a different tank.

Nandopsis tetracanthus question

I have a 4" cuban who doesn't want to eat. I've tried everything: flake, pellet, bloodworm, brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, silversides. I can't swear that he's not eating, but if he is he's not doing it in front of me. I've seen him spit out the pellets. I thought for sure he'd go for the mysis but he ...
