    New sterbai corydoras

    Looking good. The Candy Cane Tetra's are so relaxing to watch, I'm getting dizzy from watching a school of Danio's dart about. Something slower would be nice.

    Ph wild on cycling tank

    Again I'm going to re test for accuracy, perhaps I've been sweating over nothing. Regardless I will watch the KH and get it into range. Thank you CarpCharacin.

    Ph wild on cycling tank

    I also asked about the 2 different ph's might they be low range/high range and received this excellent response! "2 readings are taken and the average used to minimize instrument limitations regarding accuracy and precision." So that would make my tap ph in the 7.5 range. Good to know.

    I was just thinking this morning the same thing about API master kit, the ammonia test always seems to read 0.25 regardless of what tank and I've seen this brought up on other forums.

    New sterbai corydoras

    Nice tank. I think the sterbai I bought were too young, they were half the size of yours. I would buy bigger next time. What kind of tetra in the tank with them, they are frisky!

    Betta died

    I have found a new LFS than has healthier better quality fish compared to some, and tanks that are well maintained. Daughter was telling me where she lives the store just lost a whole tank of rainbows to something. A sad loss, as well as cost at $15 per fish.
