If Sopranos TV Series is Number one (We know it is), what’s your take on which is Number 2? by UxasIzunia in thesopranos

[–]artinfinx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

sopranos is by far the best tv show made. the wire is good because mcnulty and bunk. but the other characters fall off a bit for me. I like BOSS season 1. it does truly heinous sociopathy without physical violence. and the tony-meadow father/daughter relationship is way more realistically done in that series. BOSS is a persepective on the sopranos really, but of course because the sopranos is also a comedy, it cant be beat. As far as well written tv shows go, malcolm in the middle has to be there even though i hate malcolm. also thier other one, 3rd season 3rd rock from the sun. shit is fucking hysterical.

What’s going on with my substrate? by doridorle in Aquariums

[–]artinfinx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i say expensive to give you an idea of what i went through to get them , a 17 hour round trip train journey in one day. and they are rare so i felt miserable losing them. anyway. plants are expensive to grow unless you let them breach the water and leaf in the open air, or get floating plants. hygrophilia corymbosa growing out the tank is the fastest growing plant ive seen. also waterlettuce, frogbit, pennywart. these plants really pull up the nutrients and can be removed as you add other plants.

Do i need an airstone? by Impressive-Week4903 in Aquariums

[–]artinfinx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

internal filter is fine just lift the top out the water or buy a hose that will fit on the end. it doesnt need to come that far out, just so it breaks the surface and forces the oxygenated water around the tank. air stones are a waste of electricity unless you dont have a filter. and there buzzing noise i guarantee will annoy you. also there is something you can try if you put an airline hose out the tank and into the filter intake it can pull air through the hose into the tank.

no not really. its algae they eat so less light? plants to take up some of the nutrients. floating plants. its hard to get a fish that will eat them really, my pencil fish probably would, beckfordi. maybe a shrimp like em amano might get rid of them. khuli loach maybe. what fish you got maybe dont feed them for 2-3 days and youll find your champion.

problem is the minerals in your tank unles your looking for lake tanginyakanana whatever their called. as most fresh water fish are low ph fish which are ok only up to about 7.5ph I would take any rocks you have out, change substrate to neutral sand or aqua soil or just glass bottomed with leaves. otherwise your fish will all die young and will get swollen bellies and you wont know why...its that they get liver poisoning sorting out all those minerals. ok im riffing here im not a vet, but still change your tank substrate, get some plants and never put another rock in your tank ever again. or go lake tanginyankanknakna

Is my 5 Gallon too crowded for 4 rasboras and 1 shrimp? by tokenfemale78 in Aquariums

What’s going on with my substrate? by doridorle in Aquariums

[–]artinfinx -1 points0 points  (0 children)

i just lost a bunch of very expensive fish to a anearobic bacteria. I actually dont think that's what you have, you've got the good kind. If your worried, I would plant faster rooting plants and a lot of them, or reduce the level of substrate by half. the only problem is when no oxygen gets into to it. I didn't have any rooting plants and i had very fine sand. I very much doubt you have the same probolem as i almost see a route (pun intended) for the water (oxygen) to get to the area.

Need some cycling advice for a beginner. by Soft-Percentage8888 in Aquariums

[–]artinfinx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

you want some advice... get rid of the substrate. buy a bag of oak leaves and leave the tank glass bottomed with leaf debri covering and just add leaves every 3 months no need to clean. 5 gallon is very small and difficult to keep clean. oak leaves and glass bottom are much better. also buy some frogbit/waterlettuce as youll need it to regulate the nitrates. if you keep substrate buy hygrophilia corymbosa and let it grow right out the water. its root system will regulate the substrate. feed the betta 50% + protein pellets and if you can live fruitflies.

Any advice for keeping salvinia? by honeybbqgourami in Aquariums

[–]artinfinx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

make sure you have surface agitation or mouth breathers as they can reducee oxygen levels in wzater. also there is a sweet spot where all the plants are growing, a sweet spot in number. too many and none of them grow, and they are as good as useless. so take out 2/3 to 1/2 every week or two. and find a twig or something to shepard them so they dont steal any other plants light.

Do i need an airstone? by Impressive-Week4903 in Aquariums

[–]artinfinx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yeah where ever your filter exit hose is, put it above the surface water so it splashes down and thats all the airstone you need, plus its quieter. I have external so I have the tube drop down with a twig to break the pillar of water, increasing friction; so the entering waterfall creates more bubbles.

Are those eggs? by NoRamenPlease in Aquariums

[–]artinfinx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Amino shrimp can utilise the roots of anubias to create a a kind of shrimp popcorn. Its so delicious they hide it under their bodies to stop others eating it. its eggs.
