  1. Bow front not braced

    I always like to replace what was there originally especially when we're talking about dozens of gallons of water flowing amongst our furniture and carpet. If that was me, i would source a replacement or at very least do something myself to brace it once again.
  2. Aquarium frame

    Was going to say look here: http://www.conceptaquariums.ca/ but their website appears to be changing around.

  4. Hello

    If you want a fun interactive fish take a look at pea puffers...almost like little cats watching you. They 'swim' like little helicopters in the water.
  5. Hello

    Hello and welcome to AA. That 10g will sprout baby tanks soon!
  6. Hello

    Take a look at http://www.canreef.com as that is more geared towards the Canadian saltwater scene. Much more info there on that side of aquariums than here. Put down your questions there and you'll get some good advice.
  7. Thanks for the add. D you have a sku / model for that product or able to get it?
  8. Updated: Started list of 'Death Tank' products. Know of anymore? Drop me a line so I can add it. I've started this topic in hopes that a neat and organized list be compiled of aquarium safe silicone. Such info is spread all over AA in many posts. When adding your own listing, please include the following: 1. The product name in text form 2, A picture of the tube that shows the name of the product 3. A picture of the product's use area which states 'safe for aquarium use' 4. A picture of the product's upc I've mainly asked for pictures as it is more quickly referenced than a text list of names and numbers. However I also asked the products name in text form so that specific brand can still be found with a search. I've never needed (yet) to use silicone in an aquarium environment so I cannot add any data. I'll leave it up for the members @ AA to populate this topic. If you have this information and don't want to post yourself, pm me with pictures and I'll add everything in this one post with credit shown as to who added what products. Order in times of posted or pm'd with info. ( special note: please take under consideration using a product as a sealant / product as an adhesive and choose the best for your purpose, a tank repair or a full new tank build...a kind reminder by jcdg) ( special note: please avoid anything that says mold resistant or similar) -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- Products suitable for aquarium use 1.

  9. Hello From Edmonton

  11. Hello

    Hello and welcome to AA. A 100g planted community tank. (that'd be my suggestion!)
  12. Possible Tank Seal Issue

    Have an old tank that if I fill too much as jvision states it wicks UP, between the glass top and plastic trim. If you think it's this...tape a little strip of tissue along the glass just below the trim above the area you have concern. You don't have to see it happen but once the tissue gets wet it will change the way it looks and that can easily be seen. Fill the tank to the top as well to at least rule this out.

  17. Molded stone siding

    I'd be very cautious. From last I read there are flame retardant chemicals in some.
  18. Hello from St.Albert

    Hello and welcome to AA.
  19. Hi there, new from Edmonton

    Hello and welcome to AA. Any sort of fast growing plant can provide a food source. Duckweed type plants, many hygrophila, many bacopa can all grow with great speed.
  20. Logging In

    Double check the issue exists for you with a different internet browser as well. With as many browsers out there, each has their own abnormalities that unfortunately appear over night.
