    I have had a QT up for about 2 weeks now which I have 2 fish in while I am redoing my main tank. My main went through a mini cycle so waiting for that to finish. I used the water from my main tank in the QT originally. As far as filtration I am only using a powerhead. How often do you do water...

The lighting which is pretty old is a 12" fixture which uses a T5 12" 8watt bulb. I was wondering if i could change to another fixture or fixtures...

    thermometer position

    This may seem like a silly question but i am asking anyways. Does it matter whether a thermometer is positioned horozontally or vertically? Because I have had mine mounted veritcally but want to move it towards the bottom of the tank and mount it horozontally. Would that affect the reading? My...
