  1. Spring Auction

  2. Spring Auction

    Sunday Apr 15th is what I just heard
  3. Spring Auction

    I'll try and find out on Saturday for you.
  4. Calgary Aquaticon Feb 3rd 2018

    Its a sale and expo not an auction. Vendors rented tables and set up their wares fish, equipments, plants, corals, live cultures etc and set their own prices and are available to learn from. There are no speakers this year. There are raffles and giveaways it should be a great day. Auction will still be in the spring.

  6. Lighting suggestion for 10g

    Thanks Keith I'll call them as I'm rabbing some plants on that side of the city this weekend.
  7. Hi! But also Help!!!!

    Hi Kate Welcome to AA! Lots of questions to help us help you How often are fish being fed? Gravel being vacuumed and or water changed? What type of plants? How often have you added salt? We all understand the frustrations. Your tests are good but wondering if there is something else going on. Jordanne
  8. Lighting suggestion for 10g

    I'm having trouble finding sunblaster fixtures. Quick grow only carries the bulbs now. Going to check the garden centers and a few other hydroponic places.
  9. Okay so I'm looking for affordable lights for my 10g planted tanks. I am thinking either single 18" T5ho sunblaster or the Fluval PCL13 or ??? $40 is my price point, no high light plants in them. Suggestions??? I use dual sunblaster bulbs on my other tanks

  12. Anythimg other than fenbendazole work to treat it? I can get a massive thing from the feed store likely but would rather not try and get the dose out of large animal dewormer. Jordanne
  13. This tank has been completely qt since the first sign of ich. There are mts, 4 adult swords, 7 bn plecos, regular sailfin, giant sailfin, and a handful of sword fry. Feeding has been drastically reduced since first signs.
  14. Ok so this tank is the bain of my existence. I have a giant green sailfin Molly that is like typhoid mary. First she had ich, treated tank with high heat and salt and it resolved quickly. A week later I notice a wound on her side looks either parasitic or fungal. Same night I notice free swimming threadworms, some other thing stuck to the glass. Started treating daily with paraguard and a serious w/c and gravel vac and soaked several of the plants on h2o2 and removed to a qt. Now these f***ing polyp things within a week and the wound still isnt better. I need this tanks under control. What do I do? Add another treatment? Daily w/c gravel vac? I need to remove 1 ofnthe filters there are 2 on this tank it was supposed to be for a new tank to seed the filter. Should I ditch everything in the filter or dip media in paraguard and scrub the inside of thebfilter with h2o2?
  15. I'm so excited!!!
