    My test kit always says 0 on nitrates, nitrites and ammonia...I think it lies...Im going to take some to the LFS tomorrow. I have a 29 biocube with a korrila 1 for added flow. Tha area probably has the slowest flow of the tank. Ill try to move the korilla and see if it helps.

    I have noticed what started looking like red dust in one corner of the tank. It was there in the evening and gone in the morning. It didnt go away last night, infact it got worse...alot worse.It appears to have some bublles in it. Could somebody tell me what this is and what I possibly have done...

    WOW feather duster question

    I just noticed some of these in my tank. Are they a good thing? My tank has been setup for 6 or 7 weeks now and I just added livestock about 6 days ago.

    ? Wii on Sony big screen

    Do you have any hidef cable/satellite...if so how is the picture? Also you cant do 480p with composite and yellow....maybe they have an uprade with a component cable? The component cable will only output 480I but the colorstream connection will give you a much better picture!!
