    Hi OFL. I have yet another question :P I want a BN pleco for my 29 gallon, and I know they need driftwood fiber to help with digestion. I bought something similar, Mopani Wood I believe it's called. It's real wood, it leaches tannins and all. Apparently it's some sort of African HardWood. My question is, will a BN pleco be able to get the fibers from this? Thanks!

    I was going to get Green Cabomba, which I think is good because it sucks up a ton of ammonia and propogates easily :) this is in like 1.5-2 months, I was going to wait until it cycles( to make sure it is, I'm waiting until about halfway thru October), get the tetras, QTing them, waiting, yadayadayada.....thanks for your help!

    Hi OFL, I know you breed BN plecos and was interested I getting one. I heard they need like 20 gallons of space, but bioload-wise will be good with 10 gallons per fish. I wanted it for my 29 gallon, which has 6 Zebra Danios in it right now. I was going to get 6 Neon Tetras in the future, after it cycles. The filter is a Top Fin 30, which does 150 GPH. My question is, would this be overstocking, and, if not, will it work? Thanks!

    Lol, I heard they were very messy eaters. If this tank doesn't already come with all of these utilities, we will get them from the store, thanks for the help OFL!

    Thanks OFL, I heard varying opinions that Oscars need a 55 or a 75, I was just wondering your opinion :). If this does happen, I was going to use whatever filter it comes with, or buy a new, more powerful, filter, along with a heater( the tank has, or had, goldfish) and I was going to do weekly 50%. Thanks!

    Hi OFL, I know you use to keep a pair of Oscars, and I may be inheriting a 55 gallon soon, so I was wondering, is this tank big enough for 1 Adult Oscar?
