    Melafix and Pimafix are best used at the earliest signs of infection. They should not be used as a replacement for more acute therapy when symptoms have deteriorated or progressed to a severe state. Some in the hobby argue that both of these products are not strong enough to do what they say...

    So, title says it all. I know some people sell kits but the ones I've seen are pricey approx 50$+. I have a 30 Gallon tank. Did anyone here make one? Where can I buy them? I know home hardware sells some stuff, they have cheap frames + connectors, but I can't find the netting ANYWHERE. Any...

    Thinking of working on making one, where did you buy the materials? My tank will be a standard rectangular rimless design. I know BRS sells them but any distributes in Canada? or any local stores I can pick it up?

    Hi all, admittedly this is not the main forum that I utilize but a build thread is never a bad thing on any site so here we go. This will be the express version. In the summer of 2012 I bought a Marineland 300G starfire deep dimension tank. Decided that I would build a four side viewable...

    I was wondering if anyone has tried implementing an Under Gravel Jet? It's like an Undergravel Filter but in reverse so it keeps waste in the water column so a filter can filter it out. My aim is to have less waste on the bottom of the tank and out of sight. I have a 100 Gallon Tank (60" L x...

    Hey guys, I did some digging on DIY brine shrimp hatcheries, and went with the inverted pop bottle technique. After 24-36 hours, I've got a bunch of hatched [baby] brine shrimp. Now what do I do with them, to make sure they don't all just die off?? I've moved a portion solution + brine...

    Got a Marina Slim S10 HOB filter as a part of a package deal, and have been using it at the office. I'm worried the filtering isn't great, because of the design [I suspect the third compartment doesn't have the same amount of flow as the rest of the filter]. Has anyone used one of these, and...

    I was running an EHEIM Professional 3 - 1200XL - 2080 canister filter prior to this post, however because it was sitting flush (levelled) with my poly stock tank (on the ground level), I was constantly running into problems with the water flow. That's when I learned it's intended use was to be...
