    Malayasian trumpet snails are hands-down the greatest scavenger ever. They keep my tanks sparkly-clean by eating every single cell of algae that attempts to grow. Downside, as mentioned, you will not...

    In my opinion, if you want a slice of the super-saturated guppy market, you need to invest eighteen months to two years developing a strain that there aren't already a hundred people selling. And...

    Angel fish. Just to spite you, Klaus!

    I spend more on discus, but angels have ten times more personality. And rams. I like rams.

    These are the reasons I stopped selling online ten years ago. Now I just give stuff away - it saves the whole messy step of actually talking to people.

    Put the fish in the tank. You'll need to change the water a little more often for the first month or two. It's not easy to kill a goldfish.

    I'm not so sure. I always imagine he thinks of us in the same way we think about the fish in our tanks. I know that sometimes I get startled and swim into the heater when he gets too close to the...

    It will make a difference if you place it in the water flow - simply because it will dissolve more quickly. But, you're right, probably not anywhere near enough.

    Algae can be pretty.

    Assuming you're using calcium carbonate to raise KH, in principle, it should be nothing but good for them. I'd just do it really, really gradually. An old nylon filled with crushed coral somewhere...

    I don't know much about Africans but aren't they supposed to like hard water? You don't have to just lower pH, you can also increase dissolved CO2 by increasing the KH. KH at about 16 ddh would...

    Wait, I think I screwed up the formula - should be dh KH, not GH... implied CO2 concentration about 7 ppm. Way low.
