Re: Planted Aquarium kaki

Initially, you should wash away the dirt. But when the filter gets slimy, you should preserve some of that slime when you do the cleaning, as that is the good bacteria that purifies the water and keep fish healthy. I cleaned the filter furiosly. :cry: Yes, people tend to get "Shipfitter's Disease" ...

An example was the mis-use a an organic carbon additive called Seachem Excel. A fellow aquarist was addin...

Re: Boating

I've been using Portabote 12ft since early 90s. It takes big waves well as it flexes to absorb the force. Have used it in stormy seas where only 45ft and bigger boats hang around. Very wet, but not yet alarmed enough to want to turn back. The flipside is that it is soft, and needs getting used to un...
