Stocking for a 60 L Tropical Freshwater
Brett_CR posted a topic in FreshwaterHello all! I have a 69 L (60 L actual) that I'm about to start stocking. Traditionally for my tanks, I've gone for one or two 'centrepiece' fish, and then a whole lot of schoolers. What I wanted to try with this one was a small group of individual fish - i.e., one per species, but on the larger side for this tank (say, up to 6 cm-ish). I've been reading up quite widely, and watching a (vast) number of YouTube videos for ideas but the problem I'm running into is that most of the suggestions have one of two issues: The fish has very different water chemistry requirements to virtually all of the other suggestions (e.g., bumblebee gobies) and/or needs to be kept in a species-only environment. It's debateable as to whether or not the fish will reliably get along with any of the other suggestions (e.g., GBRs/Dwarf Apistos/Gouramis etc) I'm not wedded to the idea, so I could definitely get one centrepiece + some schooling fish if I had to, but I wanted to try something a bit different this time. Any thoughts / experiences would be very much appreciated Tank is ~ 70% of the way through its cycle (ammonia 0.25 ppm, nitrites 2 ppm, nitrates 2 ppm), so it'll probably be another week to ten days before I buy the first inhabitant, and I'm in no particular rush. I currently have the water (non-phosphate) buffered to pH 6.8 / 4 dKH, and the plan is that it will be moderately well planted.

Is Black Muriwai Beach Sand OK
Sharnae Taylor-Smith posted a topic in FreshwaterHi everyone! I am wanting black sand. I have read conflicting opinions on here about collecting black sand from Muriwai, some using it with no issue others saying it's risky. can it be used? And if so how to I clean it. Will perimeters be changed? Does it leach anything? Again, reading conflicting answers on leeching. I currently stick community fish inc rams, tetras, kuhlis, corys, pleco & spiny eel in a 75L. If it's unsafe, where can I buy the blackest soft sand possible? Thanks!
Algae & Cleanliness Problems
RunningWithScissors posted a topic in FreshwaterHey guys! Before I get started, thank you for any advice or help in advance! Ok, so I have a single 70l tropical aquarium, which contains a single molly (who is going back to the store), six zebra danios and three albino cory catfish (which I have been lead to believe is relatively understocked). I have fine black sand as substrate, a couple of rocks, a sword plant of unknown type and some hygrophila as decorations. I change the water and clean the tank once a week, but it is still constantly dirty! The outlet and intake of the filter quickly become blocked with a strange dark brown alage to the point where the water stops flowing within a few days, that refuses to come off unless taken off and scrubbed vigorously. The plants quickly become coated and tangled in messes of a fine green hair algae, that once again is hard to remove. As well as all of this, the sand quickly becomes coated in strange white and brown dirt and various debri which I can only assume are feces and plant matter. No matter how hard I try, the tank always smells foul, and my test kits have run out, and my new ones will not be here till the 14th, but last time I tested the water, they where fine, with no ammonia or nitrites in sight. Still, surely there must be a reason for my tank running amok like this and some way I can fix these problems! If you have any advice for me that would be amazing!
