    Is this Possible? (Please help!)

    If your ever woried about using something for saltwater for the first time... You can always clean it out with Vinegar & Water. Make sure you rinse well. Only effect vinegar has in the aquariumis lowering the pH.

    For those with super old tanks....

    Hard to believe that is true with the rocks, but with the sand, yes. Some of the best aquariums I have seen do not use sand at all.

    hey fellaz!!! hav a few questions about cycling. thx

    +1 Erin And yes, the reason your cycle is longer/larger is because of the internet rock. Most likely everything was dead on arrival (this is why if you internet order rock your better off with Dry rocks) but all that dead matter has to decay hence the large cycle. Bacteria in a bottle could...

    Water treatment instead of water changes

    I believe this product could work as it says it does. However that is not to say there is not more to pay attn to. Like Northstar mentioned. Imo i think these products need to give specifics on what they include, not just tell u what they do. You STILL need to test your water. It sounds like...
