    Angelfish pro needed

    Have kept angels for a few years. IME, veiltail angels are not that aggressive, as compared to the regular ones.

    Can dwarf gourami coexist with angelfish?

    in a 45g there shouldnt be any problem. i've done it and currently have pearl gouramis and angels together for almost a year.

    Rainbow fish advice

    yes they are community fish, quite peaceful and my personal favs. they like to be in groups. you may see the occassional slight aggression b/w males of the same type but that can be controlled by at least 1M:1F ratio. More Fs than Ms is fine but not the other way round. i've seen 8-9 praecox...

    Gravel okay for planted tank?

    I take that back about eco complete. I had never looked at product info from their website until now. I just read so many tank journals and postings from people who have used eco which had clearly lead me to think eco doesnt contain nutrients but is high CEC and therefore capable of absorbing...

    Gravel okay for planted tank?

    I remember at least 2 journals where those people got great results, from what I read in the journals. Flourite has nutrients as against something such as Eco Complete, which doesnt have too many nutrients/none but is high CEC isnt it? Here is one of the journals, hope its ok to put a URL here...

    Added live plants but how do I syphon the tank?

    If you got rooting plants but not the substrate for them for your test drive....well... we dont want you to be disappointed. Before doing an experiment its necessary to make sure you got all the material required to conduct the experiment right? Else the results are not trustworthy Can you...

    Gravel okay for planted tank?

    I havent used Flourite but read some tank journals with a dirt layer topped with flourite and I think that is one of the best combinations for a low maintenance setup especially for root feeding plants.

    Rainbows in a 20 high?

    You dont need a centerpiece if you dont want one. Get a school of corys + school of praecox rainbow.

    20 Gallon Tank Gourami attacking my Angelfish?! HELP?

    I dont think you have mentioned your tank size. Assuming its 20g from your profile, its too small for pearl gouramis 'coz they get quite big - I've seen 6 inchers. Get a DG or a GBR. I love gouramis but because of recent experiences and reading on the net, I've seen so many people talk about...

    40 Gallon Tank Mysterious death in tank !! (Gourami)?

    Welcome to FL. Oscars and gouramis... what size are they? At an LFS I've seen them together but the gouramis are giant gouramis, like 15 inches or more long and the oscars are big but smaller than the gouramis. I can imagine though that your fish arent that big since you have a 45g... I just...

    Are Cichlid's really more difficult to maintain than more common community fish

    My experience has been with angels and rams only. Once set in your tank they are rock solid tough guys. They are full of personality. I love rams! Usually their aggression is intra species (angel-angel). Some flip sides according to me: -they need a lot of personal space to be happy - so...

    Rainbows in a 20 high?

    For a centerpiece you could have a GBR. Praecox rainbows are peaceful and good for community tanks, 4 would be ok in your tank I think. The other bows I am familiar with need a bigger tank (boesemani for e.g.). I wonder if there are any other bows that are dwarf & a 20 would be ok for them...
