Hi everyone, been a while since I have been on but I'm here now. Anyway I want to know if anyone has a Aqua One Horizon 130 Styleline? I'm also interested in possible having a planted aquarium for my Axie. What Substrate would be best for this and what plants are suitable for Axies. Many Thanks :happy:

Any floating plants work. I use hornwort and duckweed. Plants that can be mounted onto wood or large rocks like Java Fern and all Anubis are very attractive There are many choices out there. Just find plants that like cool hard water.

I myself prefer bare bottom tanks. There is much discussion about substrate. You want to avoid things that can be swallowed and cause digestive blockage. Gravel is a possible problem though many people have not had problems. Smaller axies are more likely to hurt themselves on gravel.

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?

    Thank you! My tap water is naturally low in GH and KH, and I need to raise it... but I don't want to raise the pH, which is perfect, with coral.

    Hey guys, I suppose this is a foolish question, but will my long-toed salamanders over-eat resulting in obesity?

    what are thoughts on using crushed coral or tufa rocks for resining the ph level in my tank? I have the seachem ph alert and it’s reading 5.4

    Hi, I really need some advice about cloudy water in my axlotl tank!

    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.

    Hey guys... Hope you all keeping well... I have 4 fire belly newts and one looks very bloated... I have seperate him and moved him to his own enclosure so he can get better hopefully but I don't have a filter in this specific enclosure. Please can you guys advise if I need to get him one or whether I can leave it? I have read a lot of articles that say they prefer still water and I can change his water frequently keeping it clean. Please advise 😊
