OFL, I need some wisdom based on experience. My Kessler has some ragged fins. He does not have any black or brown on the edges. actually they are white. I have never seen him bite them, but it seems he is as the ragged edges happened over night. I have quar. him in a small tank with salt. He looks good, is blowing bubbles.and eats well. Do you have any idea why or how to correct this?
There is a sticky on NPT on the sister site...TFK......or google NPT-Diana Walstad has a lot of information on them and Betty Harris has some step by step guides on her forum...I can't give links against the rules...but it all pretty easy to find....my NPT are a lot like those with a twist of my own......you truely have to find what works for you by trial and error...but a lot is standard info too....good luck...when you get ready to set one up...I can help you out too....
Is there a thread on how to start, what parameters and do's and don'ts for a naturally planeted tank? I was just curious I'm not interested in doing one but more just to have the knowledge handy. Like the cycling guide or the acclimation guide we have for the bettas and their tanks.
For fin rot-I would start with 1tsp/gal for minor...if pretty severe I would start with 2tsp/gal....also tannins are good to add along with 100% daily water changes for 10 days while in a small QT container....
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!
Hey Ofl, I need to bother you with a question! Sorry lol!
Would my betta fry/ eggs (if and when they arrive) be adversely affected by mosquito repellent? The kind you plug in and it dissapates into the air like a room freshner? I've had my bettas with no problems with it on but fry maybe more delicate and I was wondering whether it would be a problem for them? 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!
