    Hi OFL :)
    I have my male veil tail, Mr. Bubbles in a 2 1/2 gal tank, heated and with lots of anubias. I feed him Hikari Bio-Gold pellets, 2pellets twice a day. I want to give him some variety in his diet. I used to give him a freeze-dried bloodworm once in a while, but everytime he got very bloated, so I stopped giving them to him. Kytkattin told me that you have a recipe for pellets, and I wondered if you'd be willing to share it with me? :) (you don't have to if you don't wanna...just wondered)
    Thank you soooo very much, I really appreciate it. :)

    Oh have 14 fish in a 5gal tank....both the ammonia and nitrite are too high...make water changes until you get them 0.25ppm or less...Ideally 0ppm is what you want......what specie of fish do you have in this tank......what kind of test product are you using...
    Edit..I think I read that wrong it is 20 long not 20L or stocking is fine....but the levels are not....what kind and how many plants and how are the fish acting...

    I must give you my thanks!! I still have some questions in regards to the acceptable levels of chemistry. Right now my readings are:
    Ammonia .5
    PH 7.0
    Nitrite 2.0
    Nitrate 2.0

    Is this the good, the bad, or the ugly?

    bunches of plants, 14 fish, several MTS, 20L tank
    Lighting is twin tube

    The root tabs should be enough...adding kitty litter may make a really big mess to an established tank....If you have native clay in your area-you can make clay balls, dry in the sun and then cram them around the base of the plants....but the root tabs every month to 3 month should be enough...and I would only use 1 at a time.....too much can cause algae issues.....

    Hey, OFL. Just a quick Q...

    I have a planted 10 gallon tank that is my "baby". I just added a Melon Sword that is just gorgeous and fully grown. It needs some extra iron and such (obviously). I put in 2 root tabs around it. Would it be possible to use some of that clay kitty litter under it as an extra "iron boost"? Or what else would you suggest?
