Watch at: 00:00 / 00:00:20Ohhey everybody how's it going got the newbackdrop going 800-gallon back in thehot seat where I used to live streamfrom all the time I want to do a specialshout out to Alice KH that was our goalto get a shout out it's there so todayWatch at: 00:20 / 00:40we're gonna talk about cloudy water i'macheck in just make sure everything'sworking because we did move a bunch ofequipment and by we I mean me we would abunch of equipment did a bunch of thingsand I want to make sure this is workingbefore I get into the technical talk ofNevada so no one no one's a ragequittingWatch at: 00:40 / 01:00yet so I'm gonna guess that's goingalright so it comes to cloudy water likethis so I got a couple things going onone there's always gonna be a little bitof glare and I will work on thatcontinually for the live stream but youcan see things like whatever that isthat's a glare from this wall on theother side of the room so thatWatch at: 01:00 / 01:20inherently makes this look a little bitcloudy but we took out all the fish sowe had Archer fish in there we had thegold nugget pleco the Pinstripe Pinnockwe had data noise we had the ghost knifewe had ladybird all that stuff had tocome out right and then I put theseWatch at: 01:20 / 01:40Hungry Hippos in there the goldfish andthey've been munching away at thesubstrate you can still see back herethey haven't gone deep yet they're stillon that top layer and so what they'vebeen doing is they've been just churningup everything and putting into the watercolumn now I guess this is let me showyou my my poop bucketWatch at: 01:40 / 02:00that's a nice soundhashtag stole this bucket from fritz ata show but this is what I call kind ofthe bucket you can see here I've beenWatch at: 02:00 / 02:20using fine filter floss to capture thefine particles you can see down downthere it gets way worse that is brownwater I was poured onto myself but thisgets dumped outside we wring it out weyou know throw them away and that's howWatch at: 02:20 / 02:40we have our sump set up here so thistanks problem currently is particles inthe water bits of food bits of poop bitsof plant matter because we used to havea big bulb itis in there and let's takeus far from finished by the way but weWatch at: 02:40 / 03:00need to get mechanical debris out ofthereand what we do what I guess how we'regonna do that is in here find filterpads and other aquariums we could usesponge filters we could usehang on backs we can use almost anythingthat's gonna have something to catchWatch at: 03:00 / 03:20stuff and so like this fine pad its goalso let me make sure people know whatfine is the fine or something is theharder it is for stuff to pass throughit something really coarse the easier itis to pass through it and so this ismeant to catch the finest particles andyou can see here like there's somebigger particles because I had just fedWatch at: 03:20 / 03:40that's actually a goldfish poop you canthat goldfish just pooped right there soyou can see real time that's what'sgoing on in thereand then you have all these tinyparticles the tiny particles are stuffthat's been broken down over time andthat's what goldfish do people ask a lotWatch at: 03:40 / 04:00of times like what kind of cleaner fishcan I get sometimes they even say whatkind of cleaner fish can I get for mygoldfish and the reality is goldfish area cleaner fish they will continuallybreak down their own waste I'll poop itout they'll eat it again each time I dothat they digest a little moreand the particles get smaller which foran aquarium is usually a good thing nowWatch at: 04:00 / 04:20I debated on whether I was gonna go liveor not today at all because I knew thistank was not ready I was like ah I dideverything like yesterday pretty muchand I serviced the filters again todaywhen I touched the filter it wafted moreback into the tank I was like geez I didWatch at: 04:20 / 04:40a bunch of water changes and I've beenkind of battling it to get that stuffout of the water but I said you knowwhat let's go it's been a few weeks I'vebeen super busy if I don't do it nowthen it's gonna be another week and thenwe're not gonna do anything so I saidtoday's a day and so mechanicalfiltration this is gonna clear itself upWatch at: 04:40 / 05:00in a few days mechanical would be theways we've listed also mechanically itwould be water changing because we'reyou know physically taking the breedingdebris out of the water that's the goalcan we remove this from the water andthe reality is yes but some of thethings you got to think about is wemight be putting it into the water justas fast for taking it out if we'reWatch at: 05:00 / 05:20feeding a bunch of messy fish food if wedo that every day and we've only got asystems pulling out three-quarters ofwhat that is we have a system that'salways building up and that's kind ofwhat happened in here in my 800 gallonaquarium is that the mix of fish I hadwhile they didn't fight there was noproblems there feeding them was actuallyWatch at: 05:20 / 05:40quite difficult and the archers onlywant to eat from the very top ladybirdthe maboob puffer only want to eat clamsthe surfetta Cara's and the data nodesand the plecos wanted to eat from thebottom and eat sinking pellets and sobecause I had to put all these differentfood types in it led to extra debris inthe water where if I could have just fedWatch at: 05:40 / 06:00just one what I made a little easier ifI could have had only frozen foods thatmake it easier as well the archers theyjust never did well on the frozen foodbecause they only want to eat from thetop say either a grab a whole cube orbead nothing and so some were too smallI grabbed the whole cube and it was aWatch at: 06:00 / 06:20problem so the food that goes in can bevery important cleaner foods mean lessmaintenance typically frozen foods livefoods those do wellyeah I would say that that's themechanical portion of it now if youdidn't see some of these bigger likefloating pieces in this tank you mightWatch at: 06:20 / 06:40think from the video that this is abacterial bloom and that usuallypresents itself with kind of cloudywhite water and if you have a whitebucket or something you can look down inand you can see you'll see what colorthe water is and that typically happenswhen we've disrupted bacteria so andWatch at: 06:40 / 07:00this would have been a perfect example Ihad a dream the water level down to hereto catch the fish out so all thebacteria that lived on these big panelsof acrylic did die so there might stillbe some bacterial bloom going in hereI'm just assuming 99% of it ismechanical or the the particles right soWatch at: 07:00 / 07:20we may have disrupted the bacteria quitea bit we might we might put a big fishload and here like my fish load is lowcompared to what was in there but if Ihad gone from this and put all the fishI took out and put those in the bacteriamight bloom to try and catch up and soWatch at: 07:20 / 07:40that presents itself in the white waterthe remedy for that is kind of to donothing basically we killed a bunch ofbacteria or we need bacteria that's thegoals we need bacteria and the onlything we can really do is let it settleon two surfaces and establish itself andthat will clear that water up if we usesomething like a UV sterilizer or do aWatch at: 07:40 / 08:00ton of water changes that's going to getrid of that bacteria but then thebacteria itself goes hate still don'thave enough bloom again right and sogetting a cycle it's very common if Itry and if this was cloudy water frombacterial bloom if I try to change waterand get my way through it that way allI'm doing is resetting every day and youWatch at: 08:00 / 08:20know it's kind of a double whammy likehere I can just flow water in it'll flowout but you at home might have to likedrain the water halfway meanwhile allthe bacteria up above died then you fillit back up again so you took out whatback tree out of the water column youtook it off the glass and you get intoWatch at: 08:20 / 08:40this situation where it might just be anever-ending process so a lot of timesitjust got to sit there and let it be theway it is and it will clear up so that'syou know not a great answer because youmight have a party this weekend it'sgonna look greatblah blah like well then do your waterchange and know that you're justdelaying everything it's gonna go onthere but that's my advice my advice isWatch at: 08:40 / 09:00wait that one outnow let's say you've got the finestfilters in the world and that doesn'tseem to be picking much up by the waylike in this tank one of these that onefrom that was on the top lasted twohours so I'm definitely changing theseout you know I'm changing out I changedWatch at: 09:00 / 09:20I went out more frequently trying toreally polish water for the live streamnormally I'd let that go overnight andreally let it get clogged up but solet's say you've got all the finefiltration in the world and you took thewater sample and you kind of put it in awhite bucket and it looks green notwhite right like oh man my water iscloudy but it's green which in anWatch at: 09:20 / 09:40aquarium with good lighting green waterat the very low end of concentration orthe beginning will look like cloudywhite water so that's why you got to getinto like a white buck and you see thegreen tint and when you see that greentint we know it's a green water algaebloom now again this can kind of get outWatch at: 09:40 / 10:00of control if we do nothing typically itjust gets worse and worse and worseuntil we get like pea soup green type ofalgae going on in there and that's notgood to look at very healthy for thefish typically because it's gonna suemning waste but we can't filter it outwith a pad and we've got a couple waysWatch at: 10:00 / 10:20we could try giant water changes I ammyself find that I'm usually neversuccessful with thatI've tried it several times and itdoesn't work for me doesn't mean thatthere are other people get it to work Imyself find that I can't water changemyself or my way through itso I end up relying on one of a coupleWatch at: 10:20 / 10:40methods - the second one is you couldcompletely black out the tank so whatthat means is no light gets in there atall even when you're feeding all thatkind of stuff like no light becausegreen water can survive off very lowlevels of light all right so you couldcover this tank with a blankturn off all the lights you let that gofor seven to ten days and most likelyWatch at: 10:40 / 11:00you would kill off a bunch of that greenwater now the steps I do when I try thatmethod would be do a large water changeso we're moving a lot of the green waterand then fill it back up cover it nolight and then what's left let's say wehad fifty percent of that green waterleft it's gonna die and actually createWatch at: 11:00 / 11:20ammonia so when we get a week ten daystake us back off we do another waterchange so that we get rid of any of thatexcess ammonia plus we're gonna turnlights back on if we have ammonia in thewater and we have light and any of thosegreen water spores left it's gonna bloomreally hard again so that's one way toWatch at: 11:20 / 11:40go about getting rid of the green waterI myself this DNA it just goes straightto a UV sterilizer it changes the cellstructure of the the spore or the greenwater and makes it so it doesn'treproduce that allows you to start waterchanging it out that's the way I go andit doesn't take a very big UV sterilizerWatch at: 11:40 / 12:00could be a pretty small one for a largeaquarium or a large pond because greenwater is fairly easy to kill unlike ikor some like that where it takes quite abit of UV sterilization actually pullthat off so yeah that's UV sterilizedit's not a bad thing to have aroundanyway you know pair it with salt likeWatch at: 12:00 / 12:20UV sterilizer and salt to treat it veryvery good so there are definitely usesoutside of disagreeing water and thenthere's you know there's weird thingsthat could just be in your water likecoming from your source water and thatkind of stuff and that's a little hardto diagnose and you kind of go down arabbit hole of who knows what's in thewater but those are the main things thatWatch at: 12:20 / 12:40people run into you could get cloudywater from let's say tannins so if yourwater's really brown and because he'sgot a bunch of wood in there that wasone of the things I took all the woodout that was definitely I'm not a hugefan of wood so I kind of like the tanninWatch at: 12:40 / 13:00look I don't like all the wood pulp fromwood eating plecos I typically like tokeep and no matter how much water Ichange in there there would always be atinta Brown and for what I want to doand that is put it on video takepictures short our livestream thatlittle bit of brown wasn't good itWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20wasn't what I wanted to see but if I'mif just I am enjoying it I don't mindbrown water at all it looks really goodit's you know it I'm not trying to getgood lighting to film it you know to geta good clear picture of a fish you gottahave good lighting and not have thebrown and all that so you know I'm Itend to lean towards rocks or fake wooddecor in things that I need to work withWatch at: 13:20 / 13:40but if personal enjoyment like I loveoutside my ponds very tannin I love itsuper good for the fish and overall doesgreat but if you needed to get rid oftannins things you could do would beused some chemical absorbers things likecarbon you know a carbon pad oractivated carbon in a little sock so I'mWatch at: 13:40 / 14:00like that you could use peerage in puregeneral trap that up for you and it'srechargeable which is nice kind of apain but is rechargeable and those twoare the main ways to get rid of besideschanging water you can change a bunch ofwater but I tell you what I had a lot ofwood in there and a change of ton ofwater I could never really get ahead ofWatch at: 14:00 / 14:20that so you know if it's a small tankmaybe makes sense for youall right well if you've made it thisfar in the video maybe your slightlyinteresting what we do hit that likebutton subscribe if you haven't alreadythat's that's kind of the the salespitch there everything here is freeWatch at: 14:20 / 14:40mm-hmm so you know you can do your partand give it a like if you liked it andif you want more of this kind of contentshowing up in your feed hit thatsubscribe button I'm gonna takequestions from the audience now and tryto address some specific cloudinessthings I don't go to general Q&A andjust talk about whatever all right soWatch at: 14:40 / 15:00we've got some super chats I'll justgrab that real quick I've the dumbestquestion ever that's always a good wayto start dumbest question ever I'm goingto a cycle do the meds okay obviouslythere's fish in there I have all thingspresent my tank meaning ammonia nitrateWatch at: 15:00 / 15:20nitrate am I am I getting close tocomplete so I personally how do I putthisI don't cycle aquariums that way I meaneven though chemically my aquariums dothatI I I basically have an order ofWatch at: 15:20 / 15:40operations that I follow when I'm takingcare of aquarium water and that is keepammonia to 0.5 or less keep nitrite to0.5 or less and keep nitrates to 40parts per million or less okay so in aWatch at: 15:40 / 16:00case where we have all three of thosepresent it does show signs of youraquarium is not adequately processingstuff from ammonia all the way intonitrates at least in at a rate that'sgonna keep up with what your aquariumwants to do right so I would help it outwith doing water changes so a lot ofWatch at: 16:00 / 16:19people what they think is if I changewater and all those numbers drop myaquarium is not going to cycle what weneed to remember is we're buildingbacteria so if you have five units ofbacteria in your filter and you changewater and you remove the ammonia and youremove the nitrite you remove theI treat it doesn't remove the bacteriaWatch at: 16:19 / 16:40it just removed those those are theparts that get hurting the fish right sothen you feed again a couple days laterthose parts go back up you still havethe five bacteria the whole goal wascycling an aquarium is to find out howmany of those bacteria do you need tosupport you feeding if you needed eightso now we have eight but you only hadWatch at: 16:40 / 17:00five you're always gonna be left withthree parts of you know ammonia nitritenitrate somewhere in there you're gonnabe left with those right so all we'retrying to do is buy time betweengenerating more bacteria to handle thatload and keeping the fish healthy whileWatch at: 17:00 / 17:20that process happens so in a you knowyour question is are you come are youclose to completing the cycle we can'tknow because we don't know how fastyou're building the ammonia so you arein the process right so it kind of belike if I my business if what we need toWatch at: 17:20 / 17:40hire people right mm-hmm and we'rehiring a person a week okay let's saywe're doing that are we close to beingdone hiring the answer we can only knowthat well how many people do we need tohire Oh 500 oh we've hired four we'renot anywhere closeso until we know really what the levelsare it's hard to know how close we areWatch at: 17:40 / 18:00to being complete but we can do thosewater changes we can alleviate that andbuy us some time the good news is if youjust stop feeding your fish that willlighten the load need less bacteria soif you needed eight bacteria becausethey're feeding eight pellets a daylet's say and you're continually doing aWatch at: 18:00 / 18:20water change and you're having thatthree parts of waste left one of theways you can address that if you retireto doing water changes is only feed fivepellets a day so you change water waterlevels are good now instead of feedingeight we only feed five and let theaquarium kind of okay digest that reallywell for like a week then step it up goWatch at: 18:20 / 18:40okay we're going to feed six pellets aday right and you might go test thewater oh I don't see any any variancethere and if you step up slowly that isaa great way to do it and you shouldn'treally be detecting a lot of that soit's one of the reasons why when I doWatch at: 18:40 / 19:00use medswe recommend not feeding and that kindof stuff because we don't want to buildup ammonia if we compromised any of thebacterial colony that we have going andin general with meds like when I feelsick I don't eat nearly as much and justthat's how animals work in general youknow not that fish or animals but youknow things when sickWatch at: 19:00 / 19:20don't act normal so yeah that's how Iwould handle that and just slow andsteady a lot of these things it's easyto feel overwhelmed or scared we'regonna kill fish the reality is though ifwe know the process to get throughsomething it's usually just mathproblems of like oh I have three partsWatch at: 19:20 / 19:40per million ammonia and I have a 50gallon tank if I change 25 gallons ofwater and we left with 1.5 ppm ofammonia is still too much right so thenyou might change half wait an hour to gochange half again you'll be at 0.75 waitan hour to go change half again nowyou're down low enough to be in a safeWatch at: 19:40 / 20:00level and you can kind of let that ridefor a while so hopefully that'll helpyou get through that I know you had saidearlier in the chat which if you guysaren't showing up early to chat youmight consider it because we talked andwe talked about all kinds of stuff butnewer to the hobby and I get it that youcan read 10 different articles they'reall telling you 10 different things andWatch at: 20:00 / 20:20sometimes when I was new I would takethe best from each article I'll do allthese things yes put in ammonia lockuplet's do an extra water change let's putit a little bit extra Prime in there andit'll cut food back I'll do all thesethings and you end up doing so much yourextra causing more harm than good andyou could be wasting a lot of money soyeah I'm gonna kind of do a little bitof researchWatch at: 20:20 / 20:40what causes pink-tinted water that Idon't know if I've seen I've seen pinkallergies I've seen you know it can turnpink with potassium permanganate if youuse it's in my cabinet here but if youWatch at: 20:40 / 21:00use a Prosecco antinol which is adewormer that can give it a little bitof yellow sometimes a little bit of pinklook to the water yeah I don't know ifI've ever just like walked in one of myaquariums like wow it's got a pink hueto it sometimes lighting can do that butI yeah I might is because I haven't runWatch at: 21:00 / 21:20into it I don't know the answer and youknow it must be fairly rare at least inour part of the country becausetypically any you know for the pastbasically ten years of my life I'vealways managed at least a hundredaquariums at any one point and for me tohave never run into it just is bizarrewhen I run in something I've never seenbefore like wow that's that's crazyWatch at: 21:20 / 21:40because you end up seeing so much afterthat amount of time so yeah I don't knowunfortunately if you take video andpictures we can look at it through emailand maybe we know something but it stillmight just be out yep I have no ideasorry so alright what else we got hereWatch at: 21:40 / 22:00mmm-hmm a super chat from Duke cityaquariums I picked up some java fern onwood and a few weeks later the fern iscompletely covered in hair algae anytips for that without knowing what otherplants are going on way light is ingeneral allergies are from an imbalanceof light nutrients all right if you guysWatch at: 22:00 / 22:20have been around for a long time for mesay that a million times one of theeasiest things to control is our lightOuiser can use an app or we can use alight timer get that as a constant thingmaybe eight to ten hours but the goal isthe same every every day that one timeyou forgot to turn it off that causes alot of havoc in the algae world then itWatch at: 22:20 / 22:40comes down to monitoring waterparameters and really we want about 20parts per million of nitrogen ideallythat'd be with some other fertilizer inthere so that it's a complete offeringfor that plantand a goldfish to make a noise that youWatch at: 22:40 / 23:00know suffusing easy green 20 parts permillion from easy green and moderatelight would create an environment whereplants want to grow and not necessarilya place where algae would get out ofcontrol but once you have algae then itbecomes a two part punch of make sureyou've got those constants set but thenalso something to kind of eat on it orWatch at: 23:00 / 23:20manual removal with your hand with ageology like that you could usesomething like Siamese algae ters a monoshrimp Florida flag fish I'm surethere's a few other mollies that kind ofstuff they'll start picking at it alittle bit a lot of libraries will pickat it and you just need something tostart helping you turn the tide youWatch at: 23:20 / 23:40maybe you fix a lighting issue orsomething you had going on and thesetime will also help soall right well that seems timely I willaddress other stuff but this one hashappened to be right up on the screenchance Baker says a brief pitch on whywe should be members well first I wantWatch at: 23:40 / 24:00to address something that people may notknow a super chats it's under 499 won'tshow up on like the top of the screen soit's harder for us people on this sideof the screen to see that so that's whyI'm getting it real quick because itshows up on a list you know I've got aWatch at: 24:00 / 24:20whole new Creed set up going here butjust know that at $5 it pops up thereand it's a little easier to see for usbut the big sales pitch and I don'tnormally call it a sales pitchwhy would you become a member somembership is a program that YouTubeWatch at: 24:20 / 24:40rolled out that basically was a way forcreators to make more money okay so Imyself am not using it for the purposeof making money I use it for the purposeof sorting okay so what does that meanthat means you guys support me by buyingWatch at: 24:40 / 25:00it for my website that's super cool lovethat I would much rather have you guysspend five bucks and get this and nowyou can use this then all this might beless than five bucks but you know buy aproduct and use it that's greatyou know if that's the way you want tosupport me great but the sorting featureis what i-i've kind of figured out isreally nice so what it allows me to doWatch at: 25:00 / 25:20is get ready to sneeze on cameras what'sallow me to do but what it allows me todo is it allows me to separate theviewers from the fans now that mightseem weird because probably a ton of youthere in the in the chat right now we'reall fans right but the analytics theWatch at: 25:20 / 25:40back end of YouTube what it shows isthat 65 percent of people that everwatch the channel never subscribe theynever leave a comment they never reallyinteracted is consume and go away rightand well not necessarily some commentsbut when all this stuff is flooding inWatch at: 25:40 / 26:00you know we get tons and tons ofcomments I need a good way to sortthrough them and if someone becomes amember it you get a little icon withthat icon does is that allows me to gohey that's someone that's kind of asuperfan they're willing to invest youknow at least 5 bucks and they getWatch at: 26:00 / 26:20little icon I hey I'll make sure I tryto give a little more attention or atleast make sure I read that comment Iread I read every comment but try extrahard on that if you're you know buyingstuff off the website unfortunatelythose two don't link together likeYouTube and my website aren'tbuddy-buddy so it can't like hey thisperson's you know extra supporting youand all that and so it's kind of just aWatch at: 26:20 / 26:40filter is what it does and so it allowsme to seepeople that are superfans is what Icalled them personally and then itallows me to actually deliver a contentthat would normally be terrible forYouTube so as an example last week I wasWatch at: 26:40 / 27:00waiting we had to move Lady Bird rightso Lady Bird came out of here she wentinto my living room tank which was 230gallonsI had to drain a ton of water because Ihad to catch about a hundred Silvertiptetras out of there and so while wedrain the water took like 40 minutes Idid a live stream for my couch you sawlike a white wall and it was just meWatch at: 27:00 / 27:20talking to my phone and alower-resolutionnot the greatest audio but there wasonly like 30 people in the chat so rightnow we have over a thousand people inthe chat but there was only 30 so if youreally wanted to be like oh I want Coryto answer my questions that was aperfect little moment yeah the livestream is only like 38 minutes orWatch at: 27:20 / 27:40whatever and it was rough and raw butthat allowed that setting so you know uhme and thirty people versus me and athousand people also we do have someother low behind-the-scenes stuff andthat would be like a I film some mysecret projects and people have seen orheard about like the big change wasWatch at: 27:40 / 28:00coming here and really if you neverbecome a member that's fine too you'regonna see all the stuff you just mightnot see it as soon basically I don'tknow it's it's something I'm having funwith and I guess that's why I'm doingthe membership is keeping me activethere because I'm enjoying it giving alittle sneak peekyou know also playing around stories asWatch at: 28:00 / 28:20well that's other free thing you guyscan play with you're not looking at theYouTube story that I do that's anotherthing that that's absolutely free butgoing full circle here memberships dosend a signal to YouTube the morememberships we get the better YouTubewill help me and so at this pointWatch at: 28:20 / 28:40YouTube has identified that we areabnormal in that you guys seem to lovewhat I'm doing and you will becomemembers and that typically only happenson like gaming channels and that kind ofstuff so being that we're outside ofgamersand that we have loyal fans and peopleWatch at: 28:40 / 29:00are enjoying it they're studying us andso the more thing the more members thatwe get the more they want to help us getbetter so like we have one of the thebeta we're a beta tester for this rightwe got in like a year ago which was areally long time ago right and some ofthe first members will get their tacoWatch at: 29:00 / 29:20badge because they'll come up on oneyear and you know so I by the way Ithink that's a little bit of a tip ofthe hat and people are coming up on ayear being a member they've seen somevalue over the course of a year you knowto stay in five bucks every month rightbut the more members we get the more Ican ask YouTube things like hey what'sWatch at: 29:20 / 29:40going on here or hey can I get thisfeature so one of the features that wehave that we get to test that noteveryone gets a test is that on youriPhone which is what I have if you're inAmerica you should have a join buttonnow if you're not in America or youdon't have an iPhone you don't careWatch at: 29:40 / 30:00about that that's a feature that's verynarrow right but we get to help testthat and give feedback and go hey isthis working that kind of stuff foreveryone on YouTube and then thatbecomes a thing right so that's kind ofcool that we get to help but then we'realso on the insider we know what's goingon and you know what's the other thing Iknow it is there something else thatWatch at: 30:00 / 30:20they've told me so I've had the optionto do the tiered system or at least I'veknown about it for quite a long timewhat that means is I could do a tear attwo dollars I could do it tear at $5 $20$100 $500 whatever I want right I coulddo different like at the $50 level youget a newest super exclusive livestreamWatch at: 30:20 / 30:40at the hundred dollar level you get myemail you know and I don't want to turnit into a revenue source like that's notmy goal my goal is just to sort peopleand I feel like we can sort people justfine at five dollars like five dollarsyou're in you know and it usually someother things would get you sometimes toWatch at: 30:40 / 31:00get to you a special code to our websitesometimes it'll I'll let you guys knowhey this sales gonna start in a coupleof days you guys can buy your stufffirst if you'd like you know just theselittle subtle perks I also use athere's a lot for testing I figure if Italk to people that I consider mysuperfans first and they receive it wellit's probably a good idea to do a wholeWatch at: 31:00 / 31:20video on it but if they go no it'sterrible why would you talk about thatthen I know hey I don't need to be doingthis you know I don't need to waste awhole bunch of time on this stuff so iuse it as a feedback loop and it's justkind of a closer knit group and you knowwithout you guys experiencing it'sreally hard to convey that but theWatch at: 31:20 / 31:40people that are members when i do like amembers-only post on the community tabwhich maybe I could take you guys intothat let me see if I could take you guysinto that give you a little sneak peekhere of what we're actually talkingabout cuz I've never done that beforeand so maybe you could actually see whatit is Corey's talking about let's see ifif this thing doesn't blow up whileWatch at: 31:40 / 32:00trying to do that and if you'relistening to the podcast or you're superbored right now I apologize this issomething I've wanted to talk about fora little bit and we'll definitely getback to fish it's just an importantthing that this helps spreads fishinformation long-term all right let'ssee if this blows up in my face allright so you can see that we are liveWatch at: 32:00 / 32:20right now and so this is the normalcommunity tab that we are playing withand we're live yepbut down here if we scroll down a littlebit more so like you see I just saidanother thing we'll talk about laterthat a new app is out for or update isWatch at: 32:20 / 32:39out for the flu haul app it the flulights now do more features which isnice it's not out for the iPhone yet butit will be coming so that's cool butlike people and the members only got tosee that I would had a meeting withfooball we talked about tariffs theprices are going up all that you can seesome things you know like I mean I guessWatch at: 32:39 / 33:00the cats out of the bag at this pointbut we've been building a warehouse tomove ecommerce to and so people havebeen watching the build-out for that goon andwhat else from members do we have hereyeah there was that members onlylivestream kind of five days ago is 40minutes long you know wasn't wasn't aWatch at: 33:00 / 33:20huge attendance rate like that but snotabout that you can see some what's newcoming up in the fish room you know youused to might be the first time you everseen like what is going on here wholenew fish room there's gonna be fivevideos I think four videos we've alreadyfilmed about it and yeah and there's awhole twenty four minute video I shotwith my iPhone about the new warehouseWatch at: 33:20 / 33:39and you know just just that kind ofstuff really yeah and I think I askedyou know members what they wanted me todo more of and yeah here's some morewarehouse stuff but it's mostly justwhat's going on in my life that maybeWatch at: 33:39 / 34:00not the entire internet needs to knowlike maybe you don't even need to knowI've been working out every day to go toPeru and that kind of stuff like ifyou're just there to see like what thetop ten fish are for a ten gallonaquarium you don't care if you only eversee me once you don't care what I'mdoing in my life but if you've beenfollowing a channel for a while maybeyou do care about this or that or aheads up on this or that so that wouldWatch at: 34:00 / 34:20be not the elevator pitch because thatwas like a what something is really longlike an airplane ride pitch that was myairplane ride pitch there so yeahalright so I'm gonna get back to mygoldfish you're acting weirdWatch at: 34:20 / 34:40yes my goldfish forever troll metwo years ago three years ago whateverit was goldfish in the background wouldalways do derpy things and people wouldswear they would be dead and then Iwould go look at them and then theywould be like what are you doing you'relooking at me so yesWatch at: 34:40 / 35:00alright well enough about membershiptalk I see now that a bunch of peoplebecame members that is super cool youknow obviously you're gonna get accessto all those benefits there's otherbenefits like you get the custom emojisyou don't have to wait what is it 60seconds the type of message in chat youknow there's there's lots of perks thatcome with it and I'm trying to keep itWatch at: 35:00 / 35:20so that it is you know relativelyaffordable for everyone but not justlike it's also not a place for you knowbecause you spend $5.00 doesn't mean I'mgonna spend hours and hours every dayanswering every question you can come upwith like it's still you know I onlyhave so much time but it helps me dosome sorting and I just I checked thereWatch at: 35:20 / 35:40first and then I hop on in normalcomments and all that yeah that's just Iguess that's the pitch so alrighttalking about levantus all in thereyes love live chats well thank youWatch at: 35:40 / 36:00Alice and Dean yeah whoo that is that issomething that I do new bring up is ifyou're if you're watching this at thispoint hit the thumbs up button if youhaven't already if you're enjoying itand then become a subscriber like thatis you know the stats that we went overand YouTube like everything else is uplike 85 plus percent like my growthWatch at: 36:00 / 36:20they're like wow it's ridiculous but younever asked anyone to subscribe you'renegative 25% so even though the channelslike twice as big as it ever waswe get subscribers 25% slower than weever did because I don't ask for them soI'm supposed to ask for them pleasesubscribe to get more of this so allWatch at: 36:20 / 36:40right let me grind through some of thesesuper chance I appreciate a bunch by theway if you become a Premium Member youget I saw this article somewhere you getlike two dollars every month to giveaway the super chance like a promo thingI don't exactly know how to do it butWatch at: 36:40 / 37:00sometimes that's really as one dollarsuper chance come from so thank you willbug bites work in an auto feeder I wouldsay yes they're basically anythingthat's a uniform pellet works out prettydarn good in a auto feeder so I'm gonnarun a test I've got an air conditionWatch at: 37:00 / 37:20right there that I turned off and we arewhat 40 minutes into this thing and nowI'm starting to get warm I'm gonna turnthat on but if it is really annoying letme know and I will turn it back offbecause I don't want to ruin the theaudio quality so give me one secondWatch at: 37:20 / 37:40all righty let's see Jacob white saidbought your filter pad with activatedcarbon is it intended to be kept in yourfilter for a long time or removed as acarbon as depleted kind of a two-foldWatch at: 37:40 / 38:00there if you leave it in a long timeit's gonna grow back tree like a normalpad would but if you're using it for thechemical filtration yes when it'sexhausted you would replace that so yeahit's one of that weird like after it'sexhausting it does become a normal padbut if you need the chemical filtrationWatch at: 38:00 / 38:20you need to be replacing itso yeah it's considered a consumableproduct like this is consumable whereasa coarse sponge pad not consumable likeit's a reusable product so all rightwe did the sales pitch got a $10 superWatch at: 38:20 / 38:40chat from Jody so this is also my my myplea if you will if your country allowsit like Jody donated $10 which I'm superthankful for if you subscribe to becomea member for two months you get a littlebit more of a bonus and it's all thesame in terms of money but YouTube willWatch at: 38:40 / 39:00be like wow this guy's got anothermember watch out for this guy you knowso if you were gonna super chat moneyand you're not a member yet try that Imean if you have a suit like this onedidn't you have a question but if youhave super important question youprobably are super chatted cuz I mightmiss it in the queue but you know we'llWatch at: 39:00 / 39:20see what I can do here is water out of awater software using potassium insteadof salt safe wonder shells to put incalcium anything elseco2 planting let me let me digest thatsee okaypotassium instead of salt is that safeWatch at: 39:20 / 39:40it's more safe for sure but you canoverdose on potassium you get a lot ofallergy issues going but yes not as badas normal salt wonder shells for addingcalcium back into the water yes thatwould work just fine and it's a co2 tankyeah I mean you might consider running alittle bit of crushed coral in there tooWatch at: 39:40 / 40:00like that adds a little bit of themineral content in there especially withthe co2 but it sounds like you kind ofyou're asking the right questions therewhich leads me to believe you'reprobably got it figured out in your mindlike oh is this gonna be a problem andyou'll you'll sail right through you'regoing oh yeah I got this I think you'reon to where you need to be so oh look atWatch at: 40:00 / 40:20that the next the next thing down theway was Jody becoming a member wellthank you I see being on this side ofthe screen it literally is like line byline and it's really easy to insert footand mouth like it's so hard I kind ofWatch at: 40:20 / 40:40wish I could show okay show you okay canwe do camera camera and camera andcamera action let's see if we can dothat like this is we do a photo hereyouall right let me see you ready maybethat'll work this is what my skullWatch at: 40:40 / 41:00that's terriblelet's see focus better that's what myscreen looks like so I've got ascrolling chat up above then I put superchest down below and that's scrolling soI've got like two things scrolling andthen on this side I have my own videoand then in front of me I have stuffthat I might want to show you guys andso it's really easy to skip a line orWatch at: 41:00 / 41:20something and forget someone and someonefeels neglected so not my intention byany means Johan or Johan I stopped usingco2 for my planets 60 gallon tank andplants are dying well all plantscompletely disappear the tank is one anda half years old and you have good LEDWatch at: 41:20 / 41:40light so there's usually a transitionphase so they're used to getting a lotof light a lot of co2 a lot of nutrientsyou take that away they're gonnastruggle a bit now if you have thingsthat are really depend on co2 like blickso japonica maybe dwarf baby tearWatch at: 41:40 / 42:00aerial columns transiting some otherthings if they're if you have thoseplants they're gonna die back prettyhard but if you have kind of medium tohigh light stem plants and that kind ofstuff most of them will adapt there'sgonna look real raggedy for a while andthen they'll go okay this is the newWatch at: 42:00 / 42:20normal here I will adjust to this so I Iwould tell you stay the course withoutknowing the plants if you have all thoseplants I just listed that are supersensitive don't stay the course but ifyou have a lot of other type of plantsand just stay the course and make surethey're gonna have nutrients be itoutside of the co2 so alright can I useWatch at: 42:20 / 42:40the med trio with guppy fry that I justboughtI heard mixed answers I'm very confusedso Laura this is one of those hardthings for you to recommend and thereason why is so of fish like let's sayjust normal Guppies adult Guppies theyWatch at: 42:40 / 43:00come into my store I've probably used amed trio on them a thousand times ormore right but when it comes to fry ofGuppies maybe I've onlydone it ten times and I've neverwitnessed like oh man that went horriblebut with me only having ten tests undermy belt I'm a little bit uneasy to sayWatch at: 43:00 / 43:20don't even worry about it it'll be finemeanwhile you dose and it's a bloodbathand then you hate Cory forever I don'twant that so what I usually wouldrecommend is if you feel like if thesewere to die it wouldn't be the end ofthe world then go ahead and hand withWatch at: 43:20 / 43:40the trio if it would be the end of yourworld don't do thatI've never had a problem with guppy fryor almost any fry that I can think of Idon't know that I've ever had a problembut I haven't tested it on hundreds andhundreds and hundreds of thousands offish that are fry sighs I'm sure there'sgonna be an outlier there that I haveWatch at: 43:40 / 44:00not witnessed yet and I don't want anyof you to have to be that I always Ialways wish the the badness on me firstright so yeah I I feel pretty safe aboutthat though all rightWho am I my chat jumped RINO cut forthWatch at: 44:00 / 44:20says I love your vids just can't affordthe membership I hear you buddyI definitely like you know I should tella story at some point about working at afish store and not making very muchmoney and like for longest time in myWatch at: 44:20 / 44:40life I think from the age of 20 to aboutthe age of 28 I would basically limitmyself like I've got about ten dollars aday to spend on food and when you'relimiting yourself that much on foodthere's not really a lot of moneyoutside of that and that's just becauseI I was working jobs I was passionateWatch at: 44:40 / 45:00about like I had a failed startupcompany where I was fixing computers andit wasn't failed and that I couldn't doit it was that I was horribly lazy andpreferred gaming more than working sothat was a time where I wasn't makingmuch money when I was going throughCommunity College and working for theCommunity College making seven dollarsWatch at: 45:00 / 45:20thirty five cents an hourwasn't a lot of money laying aroundafter paying for books and tuition toeat and then you know owning the storefor a few years money was very tightalso you know a lot of lot of days inthe store of eating top ramen so Itotally feel yeah and you know I dothink about that that is whyWatch at: 45:20 / 45:40specifically I'm not trying to do a lotof content creators and even can bepitched by you know YouTube neckin stuffis content gating and that would be likeone of the best ways to get people tosign it become a member is go shoot somecrazy great video and then only letmembers watch it so then everyone wouldsign up that's not my goal my goal is toWatch at: 45:40 / 46:00bring the absolute best stuff for freeand then if you want this other stuffthat's in it's extra and not vital tothis the Hobby like I like to think somy content would be then you get thatlittle extra but I appreciate thatkicking in the two bucks there meansmeans a lot to me I sincerely have beenWatch at: 46:00 / 46:20there and I know exactly what it's likeso yeah thank you very much let's seeOh check my goldfish is vertical yeahhe's there all weirded out they wentfrom some of them came like that big oneWatch at: 46:20 / 46:40came from the 230 gallon that one camefrom the 125 gallon and they wentthrough a round of like chasing eachother and wanting to breed this morningand so yeah but in general more goldfishwe're going in definitely I am keepingan eye exes a new setup and yeah that'syou know as I as I kind of tell peopleWatch at: 46:40 / 47:00sweet my job to watch these things Iwill do everything in my power to makesure they thrive because there's nothingworse than killing fish in front ofhundreds of thousands of people yeahlike it's bad enough when you kill itand you feel horrible but then whenpeople say hey you killed that thathundreds of thousands of times evenworse so trust me if there was oneWatch at: 47:00 / 47:20person looking out for these goldfishthat'd be this guy so I will do what Ican and you know they just ate a littlebit earlier so that was always a goodsign when I watch them eat like you knowoh you're all derpy oh noOh food and then all of a sudden they'retotally alert yeah I love how my dog islike too lazy to go outside and go pottyWatch at: 47:20 / 47:40but if you were to rattle that treat bagall of a sudden it's you know ready torun a race so alrighty120 gallon tank good size for toocynical biters I would say yes shouldwork out just finewouldn't even worry about that like theydon't even get that big so sounds goodWatch at: 47:40 / 48:00to meJonathan says didn't know I could donateonce a month yeah it's just a

50:40 / 51:00that do well beginner low light move thelow light is putting the kink in therefor a floating like matte carpet thing Iwould say rikiya you know even low lightwhen it's close to the top it gets a lotof light so try rikiya you can use thatattached to a rock and sink it butWatch at: 51:00 / 51:20eventually if you don't trim it a lotit'll rot out on you but it is afloating cart kind of carpet plant for alow bottom carpeting plant Marcie liamminuta hard to find but is a low lightplant and then mid ground plants by allthe cryptic horns you can get ahold ofcrypts are amazing yesWatch at: 51:20 / 51:40all rightum someone yeah Alice same I promise youcan see wedding pictures I'm sure atsome point you could I don't remember Iremember promising that every werepromising like like me having likepiercings and stuff but I don't rememberthat which I'm not opposed to that likeWatch at: 51:40 / 52:00there's wedding pictures but they'reprobably on our Facebook and stuffall right Rocklin thank you for thesuggestion of Rio on Tommy's channel yesRio is a great fish youtuber I reallyWatch at: 52:00 / 52:20enjoy him because he spends his timegoing between Singapore and Japan andthere's so much cool stuff to see inboth those countries that I mean Iwatched the fish but I'm really watchingfor the crazy stuff outside the fishtanks just the way he lived his life iskind of cool he was a tennis instructorfor a while he looks like he's 12 andhe's like I think he's like 21 now orWatch at: 52:20 / 52:40something but their crazy is when you golook at his videos if he puts like a haton backwards he'll look like his 12 andthen if he doesn't wear a hat he lookslike he's 20 like he's got those crazyjeans it like I swear morph when he putsa hat on the fish life I haven't seenthis kid and I say kid because I thinkWatch at: 52:40 / 53:00he was like 12 last time I saw him in along time he says great great livestream just really recently became amember hoping you and Jimmy are doingwell I got to go shoot a video yes he'sgot his own channel he does some verycool and this is actually cool stufflike not like it's a kid go support himtype cool like wow you're actually doingWatch at: 53:00 / 53:20cool stuff and he knows a bunch ofdifferent languages like this kidactually does these experiments that I'mgenuinely interested in not just gosupport this person because they're akid type recommendation but you'reactually doing cool stuff that I amengaged with so you know don't let thefact that he is younger dissuade youWatch at: 53:20 / 53:40from checking out the content thecontent is actually very good i watch itout of genuine interest and I'm a guythat doesn't watch a lot of YouTube sothat says quite a bit but he's willingto not let the internet tell himsomething he goes and experiments andbuilds stuff and does stuff and I findthat fascinating in the aquarium hobbysoall right I'm sure I have missed a bunchWatch at: 53:40 / 54:00of new members I apologizenot meaning to do that and I may havemissed some super chats I'm going backthrough if I miss it I apologize nottrying to that is not my intentionso Oh Rachel Rachel's adding in theframers low light and for hard waterWatch at: 54:00 / 54:20what's next and your aquarium is on fireand has taste like candy in general ifthe water is crazy crazy crazy crazyhard there's nothing I can do about thatbut if it's not absolutely captainInsano then all those plants I listedwill still do well the reality is a lotWatch at: 54:20 / 54:40of the plants are grown in pretty hardwater out of Florida so they adaptpretty good you know without reallyknowing your specs it's hard to give abetter recommendation but when you startlimiting too many variables you end upwith this pile like yeah you can evengrow these you know that is nothingthat's zero right so yeah but I thinkWatch at: 54:40 / 55:00you still have option I think those willstill work unless you're just so far onthe spectrum there so all right yeahthis crib someone's saying can't wait tosee it get bigger this crime took abeating and the beating is from thetemperature I had it up at 85 so part ofthe thing I was running into is when Iwas traveling a bunch runners an IsraelWatch at: 55:00 / 55:20Lady Bird got it we turn up thetemperature we were using meds we weredoing things and and like this planttook a beating as well as the mobis andso now we're gonna run a much coolerwaterit's goldfish and in general plantsappreciate cooler water so even thoughit's got some algae on it like thatWatch at: 55:20 / 55:40leaves a little bit yellow the rootswhich this came out of Murphy's tank bythe way the root system should begetting starting to get established nowand it should start really just becomingthis monster of a plan so I love crinumbecause they don't grow too crazy fastwhich means I don't have to do a crazyamount of work I like thatWatch at: 55:40 / 56:00max colony size and a new Cardini a 10gallon people push it towards 300 Ithink a healthy number is more like ahundred at a hundred that's a lotI guess you're still doing plenty so doI think a finnex stingray is strongenough light for a hundred fifty gallontank 20 inches deep for plants likeWatch at: 56:00 / 56:20anubias java fern and jungle val 20inches deep that's very similar to a 20gallon high I think you could do quite abit the only one I'm a little like maybethe jungle val might be a slow growerbut otherwise yeah I think you doalright alright I'm gonna hop into a lotWatch at: 56:20 / 56:40of these these questions here thataren't super chats because I always Ialways internally struggle I feel superguilty when I'm only answering superchats and that kind of stuff like mygoal my honest goal is to sit down andhelp as many people as I can in twohours that's my goal every time so youknow however I get there you knowWatch at: 56:40 / 57:00changes from time to time I would say Imiss Jimmy for sure yes it was very sadto you know kind of hug Jimmy and sayhave a good time in Ohio we'll see youagain we'll see you talk Michelle allthat like you know he lived with me foryears two years and you know quite aWatch at: 57:00 / 57:20good bond going there so but you know itI will say it's great to have our houseback we can you know I can be out here Ihave to worry about someone walking backand forth like there's perks and there'sminuses definitely has changed the waywe work on videos like maybe for thebetter just because I'd be more directWatch at: 57:20 / 57:40like hey I'm thinking at this part Iwant to do this thing instead of like heyou know could call me over and look atsomething but you know so far I thinkwe're both really just enjoying it andwe'll see how it goesso but yes definitely you know the dogsmiss miss Jimmy and that kind of stuffso yeah putting on a dry start methodWatch at: 57:40 / 58:00for Montecarlo so that's a carpetingplant I myself am NOT a fan of dry startmethod only because you get most peopleget a lot of melting back when theyflooded right so the ways to transitionfrom you carpet it out right with dryWatch at: 58:00 / 58:20start so let me let me qualify what drystart is people don't knowyou'd have your substrate in you planall the plants you put some mist inthere and you put like saran wrap overthe top and you let the plants grow kindof as seedlings or you know they'rebasically incubating and they're gonnaspread a lot faster right theneventually you want to put water in soWatch at: 58:20 / 58:40you want fish in there well when youflood itthey went from getting unlimited co2 outof the air to now they gotta get co2 outof the water water has a lot less co2 soto make that transition really we needto inject a lot of co2 to really do wellwell if we're already going to injectthat co2 to get to the transition I findit easier to just plant them in waterwith co2 and just let them do theirWatch at: 58:40 / 59:00thing so here's what I know I know ifyou know what you're doing it can saveyou some timeright so instead of carpeting out takingsix weeks you dry start method you cando it in three or four but if you don'tknow what you're doing you can just killa bunch of stuff in three or four weeksand then replant it and delay yourselfby three or four weeks so you know IWatch at: 59:00 / 59:20personally just go straight for I justplant it the way it is I got time timeson my side I you know and six weeks I'llstill be alive and I'll enjoy thatcarpetall right I missed this one hey CoryI've got I just got a two inch albinoOscar with a 75 gallon tank am i allWatch at: 59:20 / 59:40right with two large sponge filters ordo I need a flu ball cancer filter allright well I personally believe you canget away with the two sponge filters forquite a whilesometimes Oscars will start chewing onthough that can become a problem75-gallon is the size in which I startWatch at: 59:40 / 01:00:00thinking about cancer filters if youthink you will enjoy servicing acanister filter yes get one if you weregonna get one I personally love the fx4flu ball fx4 that's the one I use on my230 gallon tank I like it cuz not aspowerful overflow which means that I canWatch at: 01:00:00 / 01:00:20keep it you know low flow if I havegoldfish or something like that and Ican use other things and not have toomuch flow goingso I'm an fx4 guy it's a little bitcheaper than fx6 as well and I like itbut truth be told I use a lot of spongefilters because I like to clean them IWatch at: 01:00:20 / 01:00:40enjoy cleaning them some about gettingthe gunk out of that sponge and havingthe oxygen there and just being insidemy tank I enjoy that aspect we'regetting down understand and pulling thatthing out and hulking it to the sinkI don't enjoy that part so you know ittends to be that I will neglect a cancerWatch at: 01:00:40 / 01:01:00filter and I won't neglect spongefilters so I lean towards the thing Idon't neglect new members all day longthank you very much all right let's getback into the chatroulette ooh this onesays please help can I have a tank withWatch at: 01:01:00 / 01:01:20a pee puffer cockatoo and tetras in a 25gallon cube the peep up okay so anythinghas a chance to work now we're goingtowards

gonnaworkgreat that peepers that you know thatmonkey wrench they're like well so youcould you could try it right knowingthat like this isn't working P poppersgoing back to the store or you couldjust go hey I'm gonna make this peanutWatch at: 01:01:40 / 01:02:00Inc leave the P power out and have aneasier time that's the way I go withpersonallyalright what's a good low light startingplant that I can put in the substrateask Evan I would my favorite like if youWatch at: 01:02:00 / 01:02:20ask me tomorrow you can have any plantyou want all over the bottom of thispoint thing I would choose a crypt itwould either be crypt lutea cryptloosens or crypt wind and I read one ofthose three I use them all the time theyalways look super good they're lowmaintenance and they're robust so that'swhat I would do like they're and theyWatch at: 01:02:20 / 01:02:40happen to be low light like you even inhigh light doesn't matter what scenarioI still want those plans if I'minjecting co2 and I got all the light inthe world I'm still incorporatingcryptic horns into my tanks becausethey're awesome like low lighterhighlight doesn't matter and they justhappen to you really really really wellin low light also which is an addedbonusso yeahWatch at: 01:02:40 / 01:03:00August says I have my first sickness inmy tank looks like dropsy but they havestringy white poop I've used generalcure but it's not working any of youhave any ideas on what I can do so ifGerald cure is not getting it let'sassume that you've done like a course orWatch at: 01:03:00 / 01:03:20two of general cure and it hasn't helpedyouyou might try moving till something likelo vemos all a different type ofdewormer or fin been dazzling anothertype of dewormer if it is dropsy itcould be organ failure so the white poopor the clear stringy poop could be thatit has diarrhea because kidneys areWatch at: 01:03:20 / 01:03:40failing and that kind of stuff so it'swithout pictures a little bit hard todiagnose you know where are we goingwrong here in general good clean healthywater stress-free environment healthyfood and deworming that's cover like allthose basics if all of thatWatch at: 01:03:40 / 01:04:00doing it it could be dropsy or liverkidney failure or something like thatthat there's gonna be no cure forunfortunately there's this like that'swe're at odds that's gonna happen andthat's something we tend to forget aboutas hobbies' i think is that you know outof a hundred fish one's gonna get cancerone's gonna have two MERS ones got aWatch at: 01:04:00 / 01:04:19liver failure one's gonna get eaten byanother fish no one's gonna stab it toan eye out with the stick I didn't knowwhat it's doing like there's all thesethings that are just gonna happen it'snot always something we've done we justassume it has because that is whathappens most times like oh I was beingdumb bla bla I got my fish sick now Ihave to fix it but there is like that 10Watch at: 01:04:19 / 01:04:40or 15% of like no matter what you didthat fish was gonna come down with thatillness or that disease and sometimesian's don't have any curious so it sucksbut you know you also don't want to getso complete like yeah you know I've hada hundred sick fish in my life every oneof them was cancer I'm sure of it likewe don't want to dismiss the fact thatWatch at: 01:04:40 / 01:05:00we could be doing wrong things but alsorealize that if it's limited and isolateit could be that so lots of new membersthank you guys so muchall rightthank you what can you put with TigerWatch at: 01:05:00 / 01:05:19Barb's banana guys been asking me thisin the comment section for a while todayand I hadn't had time to answer and thentime to think about it so I'm gonna doit I like to do things live because thenI know you guys know it's true knowledgecoming from my Brian and not just megoogling it so if I was doing a tigerWatch at: 01:05:19 / 01:05:40barb tank and he had said besides like aclown lift tank like we used to do backhere so the things I know about TigerBarb's I'm gonna want fast moving fishI'm gonna want things that aren't tinythat fit in their mouth I'm not gonnawant super long fin stuff so innately Ithink Daniels are a good choice I thinkrainbow fish were good choice I thinkWatch at: 01:05:40 / 01:06:00other types of Barb's like Odessa Barb'swe had great pairing I think you coulddo corydoras across the bottom I thinkyou could do probably like pet Ricolacatfish across the bottomwhat else do I think you could get awaywith I wouldn't do like neon tetras andstuff I think they're a little too slowbut you could do things like CongoWatch at: 01:06:00 / 01:06:19tetris Colombian blue Tetris any ofthose bigger body Tetris maybe not askirt tetra they're a little bit slowwhat else would I be playing with Icould see platies knots or tails butplaties I could see working out prettygood Florida flag fish things like jurorWatch at: 01:06:19 / 01:06:40Perry's or other big Earth eatingcichlids or stuff that won't beaggressive towards them but also won'tbe bullied by them as much either thereshould be quite a few options TigerBarb's get a really bad rap mostlybecause we put too few of them into asmaller aquarium instead of a largegroup of them into a larger aquariumit's part of a bigger overall design soWatch at: 01:06:40 / 01:07:00do I have any videos on vertical tanks Itried searching but I didn't see anyoneoutright so Pam I'm wondering if you'retalking about like more of a columnstyled tank or are you talking aboutlike when you take a pond and then youput a tank in it so the water can comeup out of the like the top of the pond IWatch at: 01:07:00 / 01:07:19really don't have a good video on eitherof them other than I'm intrigued bycolumn tanks I always think they're kindof a cool thing normally I build aCentertype of column out of rock or a bigplant and make the fish go around it Iwould say that looks cool but I haven'tdone that a long time because mostly IWatch at: 01:07:19 / 01:07:40want easy to maintain setups and callhim takes him to be very deep and that'snot easy to maintain especially we'redoing a lot of Tanks soall right if you made it this far in thevideo and you haven't liked it yet hitthat like button now you're you're overan hour buddy over an hour hit that likeWatch at: 01:07:40 / 01:08:00button please it so I got confirmationfrom google it legit makes a differencethey're like yeah someone hitting likebutton actually matters and I was likealright say no more I will encouragepeople to like my stuff if they like mystuff so makes sense right you like itWatch at: 01:08:00 / 01:08:20you like it does epson salt help withdropsy it can so when a fish has a lotof fluid in it and we're trying to letthat flu it outyes epson salt can relax some of themuscles and make that come out but I outWatch at: 01:08:20 / 01:08:40of all the things I do to cure fish thatis like very low like maybe once everycouple years actually is epson salt so Iwould say I usually cure things withcleaner water meds that kind of stuffbut and it's not to say that doesn'tWatch at: 01:08:40 / 01:09:00work I also when you don't utilizesomething all the time you're not asconfident with it right so could we bethat I need to do a lot more learningwith epson salt to really understandmore of the benefits from it so yeahthanks for the super chat Russell $1 9and 9 I appreciate itWatch at: 01:09:00 / 01:09:20Oh Pam followed up with like a hex or acolumn the lighting and the swimmingspace is just so different yes it isit's a fun challenge I actually have a20 gallon hex in the garage I boughtbrand new off of Amazon and it's in theit's still the tank I want to do a sweetpotato growing out of and that kind ofstuff like I still have an earmark forWatch at: 01:09:20 / 01:09:40that project I just haven't had timebuilding the warehouse and all that buttypically what you end up doing forlighting is you stack a bunch of lightsso like on that I plan to do 2 or 3stingray like 12-inch lights to getenough light to go down to do what Iwanted to do it is a challenge but whenyou have a bunch of aquariums you'vebeen doing it for a long time theWatch at: 01:09:40 / 01:10:00challenge is almost the fun part likethat will be that'll be fun I'll do alot of brain thinking on that one Ienjoy the thinking about how I'm gonnado something almost more than actuallydoing it when it comes to an aquarium soyeah stocking ideas for a 55 galloncommunity tank preferably somethingWatch at: 01:10:00 / 01:10:20interesting to look at asks Robert eachso interesting to look at is alwayssubjective to person looking at it'slike art right a lot of people get a lotof mileage out of lots of community fishlike tetras smaller rainbow fish platiesWatch at: 01:10:20 / 01:10:40danios razz borås you can kind of mixthat kaleidoscope of color together ifto me like something is kind ofinteresting is when I start mixing likelinked and unique and species to acommunity fish so maybe you've got ashell dweller or lelou pied down low butthen you have neon praecox rainbows toWatch at: 01:10:40 / 01:11:00the center right and they've got somedaniels up top like that kind of stuffadds another layer of like mmm whenthese fish get along I think they wouldwould their diets be right like okaythey could all eat the same blood wormsthat kind of stuff okaywhat about water parameters okay hardwater fish hard water fish toleratesWatch at: 01:11:00 / 01:11:20hard water okay what about you know andso like I work those angles ago thatwould be cool I haven't seen them beforeI'll be the guinea pig I'll try that sothat's what I find interesting andthere's there's so many that's why Ihaven't done the 55 gallon tank ideavideo yet is there's almost so manythings that I haven't started writingthem down yet I need it that's what I doWatch at: 01:11:20 / 01:11:40too because I write down a bunch ofideas like for a 55 gallon tank or 29 orwhatever I'm doing I start sorting I'mlike what's the best few for this videoand then I keep working on it because Idon't just want to take like you know areal easy way to turn out content wouldbe like list all the top dwellers I canthink of list all the mid dwellers listall the bottom dwellers and then just beWatch at: 01:11:40 / 01:12:00like take one from Group A one fromGroup B one from Group C talk about thatand then take two different plants boomthere you go that's a set up and I canjust like rinse and repeat that all daylongI want to be things that I wouldactuallyor that I've actually done before thatlooked really cool like one of the 55 Ireally loved way back in the day beforeWatch at: 01:12:00 / 01:12:20I owned a store eNOS worked at a storewas I had clown killifish I had Normanlamb Pike gillies and I had albinobristle nose and a 55 gallon tank andthey were all breeding and all makingbabies and I really enjoyed that tanknot a common set up but because it wasall the Keeley's they'd only get aboutWatch at: 01:12:20 / 01:12:40that big and they look super cool now onthe bright blue eye that looks at youfrom across the room and I didn't haveto do any work to raise the Briscoesbabies raised himself and seeing withthose guys it was kind of just feed willmake more super enjoyable type tank Ienjoyed itso all right Jonathan says hey he spokebefore about my vodka puffer inWatch at: 01:12:40 / 01:13:00Australia so I think if you haven't I'mprivy to this he's like one of the fewpeople that got a found comfort inAustralia and I think he was having someproblems at that point or was wonderingabout tink sighs but I'm going to delveinto this here it's doing great and onpellets with prawns fish and snails goodbuffers forever doing uni post-gradWatch at: 01:13:00 / 01:13:20study on hornwort ecology and nutrientuptake yeah that's a crazy thing whenyou look at some of the studies there'ssome studies out there that shownutrient uptake and it's been a fewyears since I've read it but like andthis is like of all plans it was likeWatch at: 01:13:20 / 01:13:40number one was like the Douglas fir treeand then it was like the corn plant thenit was like water hyacinth and then itwas like hornwortit was crazy high up there for actuallycleaning water and that's why sewagewaste plants here in America will usehornwort and water hyacinth to helpremove toxins from the water they'reWatch at: 01:13:40 / 01:14:00very very efficient at it and so yeahwe're lucky that we like you can't put aDouglas fir and your Trier in youraquarium and that kind of stuff so we'relucky that like two plants like that arehighly usable by usall right Russell's got a question aboutWatch at: 01:14:00 / 01:14:20he's about to upgrade to a 48 inch longtank 20 inches front to back 20 incheshigh from water box planet aquarium whata flue ball 3.0 light be fine let me letme think here 20 inches so as long asyou're doing medium to medium-high lightWatch at: 01:14:20 / 01:14:40plants yes one flew while 48 inch lightwould be appropriate if you're gonnareally do highlight and put co2 in thereI would go with 2 like a flue whilelight lights up about 18 inches reallywell you've got about 20 a little bit soyou might see a little bit of darknessin the corners but it's really easy toWatch at: 01:14:40 / 01:15:00put like bigger taller plants or thingsthat don't need as much light in thosecorners which brings up a good point soflue ball we had a I had a meeting withthem they flew in to talk with usyesterday went out to lunch andbasically they came to tell me that thetariffs have affected the pricing andWatch at: 01:15:00 / 01:15:20they wanted to tell me in person thatlike look the price has got to go up wetried to weather the storm and see ifthe tariffs would go away so that wedidn't have to increase price becausecustomers aren't gonna like it or likewe're not gonna like it no one likes tosee the price go up right so basicallywhat happened is the tariffs 25% and theWatch at: 01:15:20 / 01:15:40flu ball 4.0 or the flu all three pointof light goes from we were able to sellit 180 for $99.99 that was the lowestprice we were allowed to sell it I thinknext week we have to bump it to 200 999so like right now is the time to buy oneif you're looking to get one buy it nowprices are going up and until they didWatch at: 01:15:40 / 01:16:00say so they did say that they were goingto if the tariff went away they wouldlower the prices again on LEDs likethey're not looking to gouge anyone oranything like that they're just like wecan't absorb the like there's not enoughprofit margin in the item to offer athree year warranty and have the dealerWatch at: 01:16:00 / 01:16:20make money on it and do all these thingsand make 25% less money on their end sowhat I do love is that they are veryeasy to deal withfrom her service at least for us like ifyou buy it from us we'll take care ofyou they take care of us right and Ireally laid into him hard yesterday likeI feel kind of bad because I wentWatch at: 01:16:20 / 01:16:40captain Insano on them about the siestaon the flu ball app and the peoplewanting it to go completely dark atnight and the whole time the people thatwere at the table they clearly must havehad no idea that app was releasing todayeither that or they are very good atfaking itWatch at: 01:16:40 / 01:17:00because they were like oh we'll try andget you in front of the developers likeat some point you can plead your casebla bla bla you know they were reallylike we'll see what we can do and hadyou know when that was gonna launch thenext day you would just say like don'tworry about a guy it's already in motionright because I've been complainingabout so the app I've been complainingWatch at: 01:17:00 / 01:17:20to flooville people since inner zoo lastyear when they when we won thatcompetition we flew up to inner zoo andI was like look let's make this appbetter it can't cost that much more yourflu ball your flu all your huge just paysomeone and get this done well nowthey've got it done which is super goodyou know cuz my thing was raising theWatch at: 01:17:20 / 01:17:40price for you guys and what you guyshave to bring more value like the endcustomer no one wants to hear this lightjust got twenty five dollars moreexpensive but it'll soften the blow alittle bit if it's like by the way italso does what it did now it does iteven better like I do I do realizeWatch at: 01:17:40 / 01:18:00there's some value there and hopefullyif the tariff goes away like we get allthe new features and you know the pricegoes back down but you know at themoment the price is going up and it'sgonna suck because I feel like the4-foot light going from one eighty fiveto two tens like ooh alright yeah thatWatch at: 01:18:00 / 01:18:20is what that is you know but thethree-foot light feels brutal to mebecause it goes from like what was itwas like 150 to now it's 170 you're likewait a second six-foot tank for two ofthose like we're looking at threehundred forty bucks dangEddie that ain't messing around but likeWatch at: 01:18:20 / 01:18:40150 was like 300 somehowthe three hundreds like it's doable Ican see that you know so it definitelyit's right on that edge and luckily theyhave an amazing line it's waterproof andtheir warranty is amazing like that Icontinually work with flu wall eventhough they're tripping and they theymake us pull our hair out because theyWatch at: 01:18:40 / 01:19:00do stand behind the product and we standbehind our products so there's not a lotof companies that stand behind theirproduct like someone's asked me the chatearlier am I going to test the newPhoenix Lite Phoenix very much wants usto promo their lights and do a bunch ofstuff with it they offered us lots ofthings right but they refused to changeWatch at: 01:19:00 / 01:19:20their six month warranty and in myexperience that is not long enough forsuch an expensive product you know toonly warranty it for six months is notokay and I can't even really considerrecommending those lights until they dolonger now the only reason I'm able torecommend the finnex stingray light isWatch at: 01:19:20 / 01:19:40because they essentially never go badever right whereas a track record withall the other high-end lights they didnot have a good track record and so I'mnot I'm not gonna endorse anything basedI haven't I told I've been tellingpeople after those lights been out forsix eight months if no one's having anyWatch at: 01:19:40 / 01:20:00problems I will test it I'll give myrecommendations but I don't want peopleto go buy a bunch of those lights savetwenty or thirty bucks on a flu wallcompared to a flu ball light and thenseven months in it burns up on them andthen hey you know like I realized a bigpurchase for most people you know wewere talking earlier about five dollarmembership being a struggle for peopleWatch at: 01:20:00 / 01:20:20obviously a $200 light is gonna be astruggle as well and it's a big it's abig investment when it comes to theHobby so I really want to see thelongevity on something like that beforeI can make a good recommendation becauseI feel like you guys trust my opinionbecause I'm more reserved you know likeI know there's a lot of youtubers thatWatch at: 01:20:20 / 01:20:40you know are all about a Waze a brandyou guys have watched me roast them onthe live stream and I've hadconversations with their internal teamabout what I think they need to fixabout their stuff and they fixed acouple of things but there's more stuffthey need to fix before I couldconsider endorsing them one would be thepricing two would be a few of the flawsWatch at: 01:20:40 / 01:21:00they have that kind of stuff but I youknow I maintain I'm here for you guyslike if you guys are ever gonna purchasefrom meI gotta be genuine in that and if I youknow like oh well is it you'll give methree grand like hey there castorfilters are amazing right like that'sthat's not worth it to me so that's andWatch at: 01:21:00 / 01:21:20now that what I have no idea if otheryoutubers are even getting anything I'mjust saying that they're handing filtersout and that kind of stuff and Ipersonally won't promote it because Idon't believe it is ready to be promotedthat's my thing get pricing better fix acouple of flaws you will have a bettercancer filter than most people for sureWatch at: 01:21:20 / 01:21:40all rightall right hi Cory longtime viewer just arandom question about yourself but whatis the most difficult fish you raisedand the most rewarding fish I've raisedthe most rewarding thing I ever did IWatch at: 01:21:40 / 01:22:00think was raised rainbow fish eggs fromGary laying up and gave them away sowhat it was is we're at an auction andsomeone a friend of mine said I'll buyhim if you can raise them because it'sWatch at: 01:22:00 / 01:22:20it they're very very small fry you haveto feed ohm APR which is artificialprotein rotifers I had a green watertank at the time I was hatching livebaby Brian every day at the time andthey weren't and so I was willing toraise him up and then I could keep halfthe rainbow fish and then give them backto her when they were big enough to belike oh they can even normal food rightWatch at: 01:22:20 / 01:22:40and I learned a lot in that situationbecause it was a real try of my patiencecuz I was doing a ton of work for a fishthat I didn't really care about and soit's a real struggle to be like oh Idon't want these to die they wereexpensive but at the same time I reallycare about them cuz I they're not myfavorite rainbow fish right so I learnedWatch at: 01:22:40 / 01:23:00a lot about what it actually takes toraise some of these fish when you're notactually invest it's really easy toraise a fish I'm excited about like Iforget it like time and money and allthese resources go into it but whenyou're doing it for someone else youlike oh geez that's just it's too muchwork haven't even a while and Ibasically am I going I'll never do thatWatch at: 01:23:00 / 01:23:20againthat was way not good but the otherquestion was most difficult fish sothose were relatively difficult but whatdo I really have difficulty with for meit's like albino blue topaz Guppies Iswear there's like not a healthy one ofthose in this world like everyone's wantWatch at: 01:23:20 / 01:23:40to see a couple but I talked to a lot ofreaders like yeah they're pretty weakand you know I keep the adults goinglong enough to get some babies come onyou raise those babies up and yours theyalways have this calling it's like onthe verge of like you know people likeyou've had those a long time like whyaren't you making babies like well I ambut they're just not super sturdy andWatch at: 01:23:40 / 01:24:00that kind stuff I went throughtwo or three different breeders of thosethey were always coming in geneticallyweak and then the more I kind oftraveled and met other people everyonewas kind of having experience so thatwas probably the most difficult becauseI'm stubborn I really like the way thatfish looked I thought I would sell wellbut I could never get it to consistentlydo well for me which meant I reallyWatch at: 01:24:00 / 01:24:20never got to sell them for anyone elseso yeah my study is one on the use oh soJonathan I think he's we're time backinto the horn work my studies on the usefor drinking water utility to combatcyanobacteria blooms my question is anyadvice or knowledge on planet tanks forWatch at: 01:24:20 / 01:24:40a Fokker puffers yeah I mean in generalthey tend to do fine with plants likeI've always planted them up my employeeshave always planted about things likevallisneria are super easy lilies aresuper easy crypts plant like the backhalf of a tank side you like to brew alittle bit and when they're eating clamsup at the front they can chop up plantsWatch at: 01:24:40 / 01:25:00but plant the back you know maybe you'rekind of like how do I explain this tankso like the back one-third and maybelike you come out a little bit on thecorners I would say like on the cornerpart of it you want it so they don'tfeel as exposed they kind of want to bein this giant cave so you can make theWatch at: 01:25:00 / 01:25:20kit that aquarium into a cave likestructure so that's that's my advicehow many emerald emerald eyes and JulieCory cats could I put into in a tankokay I got started over I am butcheringthis onehow many emerald eyes and Julie CoryWatch at: 01:25:20 / 01:25:40cats can I put in a tankokay in all-in-one tank that's anall-in-one aquarium okay I got that nowwith a five inch by six feet filtrationarea sponge filters DIY flowerbed filtera lot so if you have a six foot by fiveWatch at: 01:25:40 / 01:26:00inch you know like filter running downthat thing whisp unch filters and stuffI don't know I feel like 300 emeraldeyes and 200 Juli corydoras like a lotprobably the pocketbook goes ah you'llyou'll hit diminishing returns a lot ofWatch at: 01:26:00 / 01:26:20times like if that 70 to 80 mark onthose blue eyed or emerald eye razzborås you'll be like I added 30 more itdoesn't look any different and the samething with the corydoras you'll probablyhit that you know what seventy and ahundred looked the same so 120 isprobably gonna look the same I'm goodWatch at: 01:26:20 / 01:26:40you'll probably hit that motion I thinkI've definitely run into that a lot rando but this aquarium render with lots ofAquarians like more is better more isbetterOh more is the same alright I guess I'mdone yeah do I ever sell floating plantsHeather I used to so the problem withfloating plants is the top of theWatch at: 01:26:40 / 01:27:00floating plants typically don't want toget wet and when we ship we've tried amillion different ways by the way whenwe ship if they flop to another sidethey get wet right so there's a littlebit of water in the bag always nothingwe can do about that but then they getwet and they end up showing up with likelittle burns or yellowing on them and weget complaints that we're selling notWatch at: 01:27:00 / 01:27:20healthy plants or they do get way toowet and they are mushy and so whatbasically I track analytics oneverything we do and something like onthat might have been a 10% chance thatthey don't look great when they arriveyour house that is way too much for uswe cut products like we stopped shippingWatch at: 01:27:20 / 01:27:40snails at 5% you know a five out of ahundred shipments weren't doing wellthat's too high oven of a margin forerror you know and I think when we werelooking at overall packages we had toreship couple months ago it wassomething like fifty six out of eightlike that's the levels we strive forobviously being perfect it's veryWatch at: 01:27:40 / 01:28:00difficult to be perfect because once weput into you USPS's hands if they make amistake we have to cover that like soalthough 56 maybe only like eight wereour mistake we put in the wrong item orsomething like that we try to reallylimit we really want to streamline so weall have to do work once and you getwhat you wanted the first time becauseWatch at: 01:28:00 / 01:28:20we realize you might have to take theday off work to receive these plants orthese snails or something like that ormake accommodations it's not good enoughto just go hey here's your money back orwe'll reship it- take another day off ormake other arrangements we try to we dohonestly they're just trying how do weget it done right the first time for youand if we can do that if we focus onWatch at: 01:28:20 / 01:28:40that everything else starts falling intoplace and we do a lot of you've got alot of new packaging coming out some youguys will start getting we had a longtime ago let me see if I could bringthat up let me do a little quick littlelet's go on an adventure shall we welllook in the the Wayback Machine it's notWatch at: 01:28:40 / 01:29:00that there we go yes we'll go back hereso we asked what was this you know onthe community tab what is this it turnsout that it was packaging so some peoplewere right and not wrapping paper it wasbasically the plastic bags to shipWatch at: 01:29:00 / 01:29:20t-shirts and things like thislightweight stuff so now we were buyinga lot of these I don't have these bags Idon't in here we were buying a lot ofthese bags to put stuff into right putit in seal it up put the label on itship it and we found out we can savemoney and get printed aquarium co-op ifWatch at: 01:29:20 / 01:29:40we buy like 14 billion at a time so webought 14 billion of them and now you'llget a cool to congr in pack that saysaquarium co-op on it and it looks extraspiffed and i'm i don't know i guess i'mproud proud dad mode likewe've got our own packaging how cool isWatch at: 01:29:40 / 01:30:00that is basically what it boils down toit makes us feel good makes theemployees feel good and easy to spot tolike oh there's my package I can see iton the back of the truck type of deal sowe you know half that stuff is for us wejust like it we think it looks cool andand I thought we could go one one littlestep above so yeahWatch at: 01:30:00 / 01:30:20Zane says I have a question can I putelectric blue a car with discus I thinkyou're gonna run into food issues what Ithink yes the answer is can you yes in alarge aquarium or probably work probablybut you might get that guy dominatingWatch at: 01:30:20 / 01:30:40most of food not necessarily they willbut you know discus typically arereclusive feeders and so they might noteat as well as they would so can I haveNeil cárdenas shrimp with my killifishask Mikey Stone definitely I how does acombo I have bread way to many of youWatch at: 01:30:40 / 01:31:00won't make many kilise you will make alot of shrimp though still36 gallon stocking number honey gouramisluster pearl danios panda quarries andautos I personally would do 3 autos Iwould do like I would probably just ifWatch at: 01:31:00 / 01:31:20it was me personally I would do 3 autos12 panda corydoras like 30 celestialpearl danios and one honey gouramithat's what I personally would do soAlyssa Bentley new member today thankyouhow planted is too heavily planted forWatch at: 01:31:20 / 01:31:40egg bodied goldfish I'm a little new tothis mine team to leave the plants lowand I suppose if they can still movearound I'm finethat would be a true statement theegg-shaped goldfish you know they kindof do this whole like oh geez I'm movingthrough stuff like they're not they'renot you know they're not running amarathon they're not sprinters I'm notgood at their job I'm moving swimming soWatch at: 01:31:40 / 01:32:00really what you want is so that you wantto pick plants that will kind of move alittle bit I'm trying to think of plantsthat don't move very well because I knowlike some really thick willow high growsthe stems are really thick like theymight struggle to get through themreally dense wisteria could do the samething you want to make sure there's notWatch at: 01:32:00 / 01:32:20way too many plants at the top so you'retrying to put food in it's getting stuckand they're kind of getting tangled init yeah that's you know kind of think ofit like it's a toddler going around andyou're like oh they're gonna trip onthat thing like that's gonna be aproblem but as long as you kind of setit up where there's nice lines to goWatch at: 01:32:20 / 01:32:40through there they typically staytowards that so yeahwhat's the play in the background asksfish for thought that is crinum CallumEstrada wish we could get more of themwe bring them in anytime we can it's avery slow growing plant and it makes itsown little like runners off of the theWatch at: 01:32:40 / 01:33:00bulb itself in a video coming up you'llsee that the one we took out of the 230gallon had like four or five babies onit which was kind of cool took a whileto grow those but all that'll be comingout and yeah it's it more expensiveplant like 15 bucks but nice nice slowgrower so yeah best way to get rid ofbrown glass algae something likeWatch at: 01:33:00 / 01:33:20auto-sync liz bristlenose plecos magfloats I'm a big fan of mag flip to thescraper I definitely recommend thosewith the scraper without the scraper Icould take it'll even make it look likeno that's not true without the scraperI don't like mag floats with the scraperWatch at: 01:33:20 / 01:33:40I love them so if you only have theoption to get a mag float like a magnetto clean your tank and it doesn't havethat scraping blade don't get it's notworth itbut if you have the blade on it alrightit's really good so yeah alright there'san in-depth according simulator on Steamfor PC called biotope I've never heardWatch at: 01:33:40 / 01:34:00of itmy gorlag on - yeah possibly I I reallydon't have time I wish I did I mightlook into I messed thing I won't but Ialso wanted to be like I'll give you afull report next week you know I'mreally strapped for time at the momentso it'll be one of those like I'm reallybored like wait a second yeah likeWatch at: 01:34:00 / 01:34:20you're over there where Jimmy was stilla steam in salt so I can look at ittechnicallyyouall right can you explain Catherine'sasking can you please explain all thedifferent pieces you need to buy to getan airstone up and running I need a pumpWatch at: 01:34:20 / 01:34:40an airstone and tubing a suction holderyeah so you've got most of those piecesthere so one you have an air pump thatphysically is gonna make pressured airmove then you have airline tubing thetubing is what contains it to get it towhere you want to go at the end youprobably have an airstone I use theWatch at: 01:34:40 / 01:35:00never clogged air stones they've gotsome weight to it you could also use asponge filter that would work also nowif you put your pump up above theaquarium right then water would neversiphon out if the power goes out and youhave a hose that basically goes on yourground you could drain your aquariumright now we have air pushing its way upWatch at: 01:35:00 / 01:35:20so it keeps the water from ever goingbut when power goes out the water mightbackflow so that's where you might wantto use a check valve so either a yourcheck valve so it only lets air go oneway and not water come back another wayor be you need to put the air pump ontop of the aquarium cuz water won't goway up high it will typically just stayWatch at: 01:35:20 / 01:35:40where it is so do you need the suctioncups to hold the tubing most peopledon't if you like if you're the type ofperson that zip ties and manages all thecords in your computer room yes you needthat suction cup if you just let it be atangled mess of cords you definitelyWatch at: 01:35:40 / 01:36:00don't need those little suction cupsthat's that's the best way I can explainthat part all right can I squeeze autoswith a peaceful betta and some Neogardenia in a five gallon you couldevery but I would probably instead ofgetting like because I would only wantWatch at: 01:36:00 / 01:36:20like one auto sync list I'd probably doone Borneo sucker loach so it's like ahill stream looks a little bit smallerand could be just one and I think you'llget I think you'll get to what you'relooking for there and it'll work outwell for youhow many people is at a 10 gallon tank IWatch at: 01:36:20 / 01:36:40the rule I like to use one per threegallons so maybe I can do three or fourof them in there you know getting theratio riot your skill level what you'refeeding all those come into play but agood rule of thumb to start with isbasically like 1 / 3 gallons roughly youknow and then add to taste what's yourWatch at: 01:36:40 / 01:37:00skill all those things so Jordans got anew tankI've got he's looking to grow mediumlight plants the dimensions are 31 tallpretty tall tank 18 inches front to backwhat lighting setup what I recommendi personaly some medium light I wouldWatch at: 01:37:00 / 01:37:20just go with one flue wall 3.0 so thisis a 40 inch tall tank and I've got twoflue ball three-point O'sright so you can see here like it'sreally bright and so I can I can kind ofplay with that with the app I could showyou like you know at so this is 40Watch at: 01:37:20 / 01:37:40inches at a hundred percent power let melet me do some real time you can see Irun a lot of flu while lights in my fishroom and you know I like them but thefront right which would be this lightright here if I go to like half powerlet's do that real quick roughly halfWatch at: 01:37:40 / 01:38:00I mean it save so you see it got alittle dimmer there right you see moreshadows and that's why I'm running upfull power but like it still maintainsreally high par at forty inches so at 31Watch at: 01:38:00 / 01:38:20inches you're gonna be almost threetimes as high as par so and medium lightplants a lot of our stem plants so aplant that's this tall needs a lot oflight but a plant like so there's a goodpoint let's say you buy a crinum from meand it's this tall right so it's it'sWatch at: 01:38:20 / 01:38:40this tall in this aquarium it needs alot of light at that point but if youhave this crinum and it reaches to thetop of the aquarium those top leaves aregetting lots and lots and lots and lotsof light so as your plants grow theymight be like oh they're barely growingbarely doing Oh grow a little fastergrowing a little faster get towards thetop wow they're just growing so fast orWatch at: 01:38:40 / 01:39:00laying over on the surface but if it wasme and I had that 31 inch tall tank Iwould start with one flue ball 3.0 andgo from there and I'm gonna set thisback to normal before I forgetso that way come on boom there we goWatch at: 01:39:00 / 01:39:20alrightthanks for hanging out Jody yes Katietropicals will be going live next hegoes live at six o'clock he's normally aThursday guy I plan to guide all of youright over to there when I'm done butfor now we're still going let's see isWatch at: 01:39:20 / 01:39:40there any way to trim Water Sprite tomake it grow taller the flue wall 3.0 itis a foot tall now and I want anothersix inches but it's really bushy reallytrimming it is gonna make it more bushyso just let it grow yeah I'm gonna beplaying a lot with a water sprite in theWatch at: 01:39:40 / 01:40:00new I call it a new fish room but likethe stuff I'm doing in the fisherman Iwanna do a lot of floating water sprayso that's right we do have a sale goingon see I'm I don't care about the moneyenough and I say enough because likethat should have been the first thing Italked about probably is like by the waywe have a sale going on you guys shouldbuy all the stuff cuz that's what keepsWatch at: 01:40:00 / 01:40:20the lights on but we do have anoverstock sale let me see if I can letme see if I can if angle my way throughthis one let's see here the website boomlook at that we're gonna overstock saleif we click up here on the top where itsays click here it'll open it up all ofthese things are on sale when use thecode overstock 15 till the end of SundayWatch at: 01:40:20 / 01:40:40night you save 15% and we're overstockedon these because our forecastingsoftware says you have too much of thisand the only reason is telling us adsbecause we're in the middle of summer ifwe were in the middle of winter it wouldbe like hey order way more so this isyour chance to load up on some of thisstuff that normally wouldn't be on saleyou know we've got shirts we got likeWatch at: 01:40:40 / 01:41:00hoodies that makes sense we'reoverstocked in the middle of summerbecause it's the middle of summer rightyeahand because this is a new item theseshrimpking is telling us that it's youknow it's saying basically like heyyou've got too many of these like wellonce the data catches up with like waityou actually need more of these but yeahyou could save 15% on all these itemsWatch at: 01:41:00 / 01:41:20you know a lot of rock a lot of woodintake sponges only two out of the threewe're not overstocked on the other oneapparently the Nano diff you're not theNano diffusor but the aquario diffusorthat kind of stuffyeah so go shop over there grab yourselfa light before the price goes up andWatch at: 01:41:20 / 01:41:40we'll funnel all that money back intobuying rad goldfish or something I don'tknow though or something sounds good tooyes I totally forgotten to mention thatat all so but don't forget to like andsubscribe and join you know likingactually does make a difference andWatch at: 01:41:40 / 01:42:00being a subscriber believe it or not isactually an important part of thesuccess so you guys are gonna you knowthe people that are around for very longtime you're like dang it he's sayingbecome a subscriber but if that's thecost of doing business for me I willcontinue to do that because I reallyWatch at: 01:42:00 / 01:42:20enjoy what we've got going on here so ifI need to keep playing that game I willplay that gamewhat white stringy fish poo after threerounds of the Med trio the next stepstickSam steel Sam if you have like went okaylet me back up here when we use generalWatch at: 01:42:20 / 01:42:40cure it basically cleans out a fish ofparasites that comes I've been givendiarrhea it can take two or three weeksfor that diarrhea to go away so we wantto make sure that we're at least twoweeks out from meds to judge are westill having white stringy feces if weare still having that then we might wantWatch at: 01:42:40 / 01:43:00to try a different dewormer we mightwant to try switching up food tryswitching foods that could help as wellbut levantus all fan benders all andtrying a different food those are thingsI would try if I really went through allthat I was like dang I'm not seeing theresults I wanted here that's where Iwould go so alrightWatch at: 01:43:00 / 01:43:20I've got a 30-gallon black water tankthat is planted with stellatus octopusand dwarf aquarium lilies would bepuffers white clouds and Coolidge's worktogether the peepers can be a littlenippy so the other fish cohabitate justfine I would I would pick one of the twoeither a that community or B P buffersWatch at: 01:43:20 / 01:43:40I would pick between the two when corycatfish rubbed themselves on sand isthat normalwhat that means is they have somethingthat's bothering them on their body itcould be something just itchy could meanthey rubbed up against something earlierand there's on a slime coat there couldmean your pH is too low and it'sbringing them a little bit it could beWatch at: 01:43:40 / 01:44:00there's ammonia in the water it's bringthem a little bit could be an externalparasite could be they got attacked byanother fish it could be any of those alot of the internet will tell you likeOh a fish rubbed itself you have it dosomething about itall it means is that you know so imagineif every time room reticulated HillstromWatch at: 01:44:00 / 01:44:20loach in my hair imagine every time youhad an itch that you as a sighted wethought it was a mosquito and we had totreat from malaria right like that'skind of what's going on here with ickit's like we know there's an itchthey're like oh it's because I had athing in my shirt that was making meitch or it's because I scraped it on aWatch at: 01:44:20 / 01:44:40tree earlier or because like we need tofigure out what do we thinks going onand then most of the time it's like ohit's itself once a day it's nothing ohit's itching itself 20 times an hourclearly something's pretty botheringthis thing a lot so we need to focus onthat but so the original question was isWatch at: 01:44:40 / 01:45:00that normal it could be it could betotally normalit could also not be normal so you gotto kind of watch and diagnose addictedto fish says and one of your videos yousaid fish foods lasts about a month arethere any fish words that last longeryes frozen foods and freeze-dried foodsthey typically last much longerWatch at: 01:45:00 / 01:45:20same with like we're past you powderedfoods you have to make that one but ingeneral most foods if you're exposingthem to oxygen every day they're justgoing to degrade so packing themstarting on a freezer doing things likethat canlife however gone to the OCAextravaganza or any plans on attendingI've never been no current plans onWatch at: 01:45:20 / 01:45:40attending yet doesn't mean I won't nowthat Jimmy's got a home base in Ohiomeans more likely but I just haven'tbeen to one yet so yeah all rightJohn's asking time outs for AfricanWatch at: 01:45:40 / 01:46:00cichlids really worked for overly willthey work for overly aggressive fish ifso how long in a timeout so we used touse kind of the timeout or putting themin jail at the African cichlids so Imanaged and what you're actually tryingto do it's not you're not okay let melet me explain this when you confine theWatch at: 01:46:00 / 01:46:20aggressor the aggressor isn't gonna likewake up one name you like oh I'm in jailI shouldn't be aggressive anymore itdoesn't change what that fish does whatit does do though if you confine thisfish it allows a different fish in thetank to become the dominant fish it'sWatch at: 01:46:20 / 01:46:40gonna get a lot more food it's gonna getto breed with females it's gonna get thelay of the land right so maybe you dothat after week and this fish that ismuch less aggressive but could still bethe dominant fish in the tank is now thetank boss when you release theaggressive fish there's likely to be aWatch at: 01:46:40 / 01:47:00confrontation but if the one that wasgetting all the extra food and had noCelaya land wins that then thisaggressive fish becomes a sub dominantfish and that sub dominant fish usuallythen will tone it down because if hegets out of line the top dog will putthem back in the line so that's whatwe're trying to accomplish when wetimeout or jail a fish you know it's theWatch at: 01:47:00 / 01:47:20other fish that will keep it in checknot so much that this one goes I shouldstop doing that it's just another fishis able to kind of level up and getstrong enough and get enough a nutrientsince body to hold that other one downin a place that's not nearly as violentin there for youWatch at: 01:47:20 / 01:47:40let's see do I plan on expanding thesize of my store no no no planscurrentlythisI like the small store setting yeah it'sjust I know that profitability wise itdoesn't go up a whole lot more thebigger we make the store and yeah IWatch at: 01:47:40 / 01:48:00guess I guess that's the logic really isa bigger local store conserve locals butcan't serve the entire country like andwe're like we were trying to expand toship to more countries as opposed tobigger store locally so tank is twoWatch at: 01:48:00 / 01:48:20degrees higher than room temp heater isset three degrees below room temp to thesafeguard that seems logical to me yep Iknow you already answered the questionon this but I watched your video andbought the Med tree I was wondering afew things can you clarify how do IWatch at: 01:48:20 / 01:48:40personally dos is it safe for a scale isfish yes Kate I use it on every fish Icome into contact with including scaleis fish including puffers clown loachesyou name it it gets it right Ipersonally put all three meds in at onceso let's pretend I was gonna quarantinethese guys I would put all three meds inWatch at: 01:48:40 / 01:49:00one dose worth so what that means is 800gallons of let's say marason be eightypackets eighty packets of marason andenough fake acts and enough general cureand i would turn the auto water chainsystem off and i would let that sit forone whole week after one week i wouldthen do a water change and evaluate butWatch at: 01:49:00 / 01:49:20let's say two days in this goldfish iscovered a nick I would then do a partialwater changeI would dose only ich X and then I wouldkeep dosing and changing water every dayuntil I cured the outbreak of ich then Iwould let everyone recuperate for aboutWatch at: 01:49:20 / 01:49:40a week after that week I would thendeworm them with general cure and thatwould get out all the internal parasitesif I didn't see any bacterial infectionsat that point I would not use aantibiotic the antibiotic is what we usewhen we bring fish in because nets canWatch at: 01:49:40 / 01:50:00hurt them maybe they're coming in withsores from shipor something like that are gettingattacked by other fish at the fish storebut if they're already a few weeks inyour system and there's no bacterialinfections it's less likely we need touse the antibiotic at that point sothat's how I would personally use thetrio in a situation like thatWatch at: 01:50:00 / 01:50:20well my med trio work on Inc worms knowthe best med that I've found for that issomething called dimma Lin and you canbuy it on eBay and it's like two dropstreats four hundred billion gallons ofwater it is so concentrated it's stupidso it's like it literally is like onemilliliter treats 500 gallons or half aWatch at: 01:50:20 / 01:50:40milliliter something like that somethingcrazy so it's really hard to work withespecially in a smaller tank but itreally is effective against anchor wormsso there you go as I say yes to beinglive streams on Thursdays now no it isnot I still intend to do it onWednesdays if I make a change I'll letWatch at: 01:50:40 / 01:51:00you guys know it was I had to meet withflu ball basically people were flying inand their schedule meant that I had tomeet with them and we would so the lunchwas at 3:00 but it was you know 30minutes away from the studio so if wetalked for an hour or an hour and a halfWatch at: 01:51:00 / 01:51:20it was gonna make me late for the livestream so I didn't do a live stream atall yesterday and I said I'll try andfit one in today so that's what I'mdoing it today it is my intention tocontinually do them on Wednesdays unlesssomething else changes in my schedulewhere it's like oh it's every Sundayagain or whatever like I try to do it soI can make the most amount of them thatWatch at: 01:51:20 / 01:51:40is my goal is to not miss them whichI've been missing lately I've been verybusy with the warehouse so yeah welcomeAmanda I'm doing well how are youfinally got connected all right so we'vegot about eight minutes left do I haveanything else that I need to talk aboutWatch at: 01:51:40 / 01:52:00other than the fan fans have beensending us cool stuff lately someonesent a bunch of gluten-free stuff forRobert that was super cool we've gotwhat else we got we got oh i in theother studio I'm gonna go get I'm gonnaget that because I feel bad now I movethe studioyou'll never see the light of day unlessI show it off so one secWatch at: 01:52:00 / 01:52:20yeah I put this in the other studiothinking like oh I like this and peopleget to see it but a gentleman wrote me aWatch at: 01:52:20 / 01:52:40wall his names on it so scooter wrote mea very nice letter and his wholefamily's into aquariums now anyhandcrafted this sign for me which ithink is super cool and it's meant to behum and so I put it in the livestreambackdrop you know just kind of like oh Ithink that's cool and I think he'll likethat I actually use it so now I'm goingWatch at: 01:52:40 / 01:53:00to put it up here on my desk because Idon't want to fall by the wayside butyou guys haven't said a lot of coolstuff which we appreciate I am addictedto salmon jerky which is not the exactsalmon jerky that the customer sent inbut it sent me down a spiral pathreading salmon jerky if you know what Imean so we always appreciate it and it'sWatch at: 01:53:00 / 01:53:20just I think it's fun for the employeesand myself like oh cool we got a thingall right and we enjoy the personalletters as well so you know good timesdo I need to quarantine shrimp so theanswer that quarantine is yes the answeris always yes quarantine theWatch at: 01:53:20 / 01:53:40practicality does Corey quarantineshrimp no Corey doesn't quarantineshrimpwell look at that Jimmy himself hasbecome a member I only he only had tomove halfway across the country tofinally become a member I see out asJimmy I see mm-hmm welcome aboard Jimmyhopefully it's doing well too laterWatch at: 01:53:40 / 01:54:00there for you yeah so let's see here myguppy recently gave birth how long untilthe babies can go with the adultsuh usually about 3 or 4 weeks I find Ionly raise them in a colony but ifyou're gonna add them back in three orfour weeks so uh let's see Cory I wantedWatch at: 01:54:00 / 01:54:20to shout you out for your plants man thejob fern is growing plants and leaveslike crazy and the dwarf aquarium lilybulb is hitting the surface every daywith a new leaf it's nuts all we can dois try that's you know we we try and seteveryone up for asmuch success as possible and to theWatch at: 01:54:20 / 01:54:40detriment of overtime like every let'ssay every six months ago on we make lessand less money off of plants and it'sbecause I find better ways to do it butI don't charge you guys more like ohyeah if we get this then they'll shipeven better but we don't charge you guysWatch at: 01:54:40 / 01:55:00for that cuz I I feel like it's our jobyou know maybe someday if I actuallyperfect it then I'm like alright guysyou got a kick in fifty cents but I justkind of feel like heat packs and andinsulation and that kind of stuff it'sour duty to get them to you alive that'sour duty and if we find that we can't doWatch at: 01:55:00 / 01:55:20it because the supplies get tooexpensive then we'll have to change theprice but as long as there's some wiggleroom there we will do our are dangestto do it so well API algae fix here myplanet tank of brown string algaeprobably not Patrick the problem is thattreats the result and not the problem soWatch at: 01:55:20 / 01:55:40like how do I say that it's kind of likedieting if I die if I stop eating and Ilose a bunch of weight all at once butthen I go back to the original way I ateI'm just gonna put the weight back onright same thing if you get somethingWatch at: 01:55:40 / 01:56:00nukes you're algaeif you don't fix the problem which mightbe nutrients or light it's just gonnacome back which is what API want becausethen you'll buy more of it right likethey're not interested in you solvingthe problem their engine you fixing ittemporarily and then using more in theirproduct so yeah I'm not a big fan ofthat product soWatch at: 01:56:00 / 01:56:20ooh just want to thank you for adviceand raising my daughter's Guppies thethree fry are big and strong with theparents good job anytime we're gettingkids into it like you know I I talked topeople that aren't into aquariums andI'm always like for a family like if IWatch at: 01:56:20 / 01:56:40had kids aquariums would be a big partof our lives not just because it's ourbusiness but because there's so manyteaching elements and it requiressomeone to get off their phone or theirlaptop and actually spend time togetherand going to the pet store as a thinggoing out to lunch or dinner beforeafter the thing like it puts a familyWatch at: 01:56:40 / 01:57:00together to do that a lot of time so I'malways a big proponent of that I like tosee it so we're beating down the midquestions a little bit more I buy - okayI buy two dozen general Cory's from awholesaler I'd dosa trio on a twentylong day one day three half are dead andWatch at: 01:57:00 / 01:57:20the a.m. next steps so in that case Iwould suddenly think dose a trio in itso I would analyze bodies like do theyhave any red patches like does it looklike anything's wrong where they gaspinglike what am I seeing here and then IWatch at: 01:57:20 / 01:57:40might back off the Med so what I woulddo is I would sew with corridorsspecifically and a guy that isquarantine a billion corydoras I wouldonly if that was happened to me I wouldback off I would do water change andonly dodo see erythromycin and stave offWatch at: 01:57:40 / 01:58:00any bacterial infections after a fewdays of that I would then deworm themkeeping a very very close eye for anysigns of fungal infections which can beprevalent in them or it like corydorasin general aren't super susceptible toitch they are susceptible to fungusthough which it KX helps with fungus butWatch at: 01:58:00 / 01:58:20a very close eye you can slow down themeds a little bit a lot of times a lotof corridors are crazy weak fromwholesalers are not being fed you knowwhen I say not being fed it's like if Idrop four pellets into a tank with 700corethat's not feeding them like that yesyou check the box food entered that tankbut it's like setting down one pizza forWatch at: 01:58:20 / 01:58:40a stadium full of pizza like that didn'tfeed the people right so they can comein very low in kind of vitamins thatkind of stuff and we can overwhelm theirsystem it's pretty easy to do thatsometimes so F straight from awholesaler is a little bit moreWatch at: 01:58:40 / 01:59:00difficult than when you're buying from astore they should have been feeding themwell they should have been less stocknumbers they should be more ready totake that the other thing you can runinto if your transshipping fish in allthe meds they're using during shippingplus plus sedatives can really become aproblem as wellWatch at: 01:59:00 / 01:59:20so Amanda Phillips you may be late butyou became a member thank you

  1. For mechanical cloudy (my 20 gallon tank) I put a coffee filter on my hob. I put it on the tank side. It MUST be change every day or it will turn to slimy mush. It doesn't need to be used often though.

  2. Your goldfish on the bottom looks depressed sitting on the bottom. Mine did that and l discovered he was not well and he developed ICH. BTW he’s better now and as big as the big gold one you have there. I also noticed once when he survived velvet disease his black markings went, after surviving ICH he is gradually getting his black markings back on the tips of his tail and fins. They’re beautiful.

    Just out of interest what do you think of the stuff you add to the water called Crystal Clear? I have used it and found it initially goes white when added to the water then clears the clouding.

  3. I just started a 55 gallon with dirt substrate. I'm having very cloudy water, it's gotten a little better over the past two days. But it is still very much present. I have one of the large foam filters and a Fluval 70 filter. How can i clear this water up, and is it going to happen every time i touch the dirt?

  4. I like you and I like your videos. My only critique is that I see a video like this one that says, "how to fix cloudy fish tank water" or something else interesting like it and then realize it was a stream that is hours long and I don't feel like wading through it to find the info.

  5. You don't need to convince us that you're working hard to answer every question. The hobby needs more individuals like Aquarium Co-Op. Respect and keep on keeping on.

  6. The information on your web site helped me find out how to treat my betta; I had to work like hell to find out what it was and I needed some final information before I used salt treatment and other meds and I wasn't in the mood to be patient. Your information was clear and it worked most importantly. He had Saprolegnia and had a very bad spot of it. There was never such a great feeling than watching that spot gradually decrease and eventually fall off. He was my first betta and I just love him so thanks for the help.
