    110 Gallon stocking suggestions

    Thank you so much for the feedback. Think one Geophagus, One solo Salvini and 2 more female Firemouths and one male. I'm interested in why you suggest swordtails more than rainbows? I like either but I'd interested in why you thought they would be better.

    110 Gallon stocking suggestions

    Hello all, I currently have a 30 gallon set up and am switching it out for a 110 gallon. The 110 gallon will house (what I already have): 1 female firemouth cichlid 2 kuli loaches 1 convict cichlid (unless I trade him in) I am wondering if my thoughts are ok on a few additions when the 110...

    Couple questions - Aquarium size and filters

    I ended up getting 2 female Angels so I think I have 3 females and 2 males in the 75 gallon. I will leave the filter where it is for now - thank you - wasn't sure I could change over to a hospital tank that quickly but 1/2 water and the filter makes sense.

    Couple questions - Aquarium size and filters

    Hello all, Still new to the more advanced parts of aquarium hobby. Couple questions: I was given a convict cichlid who is in my 30 gallon breeder, can I put a firemouth with him as well or too small. Should I stick to just corys and tiger barbs as friends? I have an additional filter on this...

    Stocking 40 gallon with Angelfish

    Tclare: thank you for the comments. Couple questions as I am still learning. I am not sure if I have 2 males and a female or 2 females and a male as I am having a hard time sexing the wild caught. How many angelfish could I have in a 75 gallon without issue? I am prepared to move one or a pair...

    Using root tabs in sand to help plant growth?

    Does anyone have a table of which plants need root tabs and which don't. Any suggestions?

    Stocking 40 gallon with Angelfish

    So my plan for 65 gallon got expanded to 75 gallon. It has been cycling for the last 2 weeks. I just bought 100 lbs of sand for substrate. I ordered an additional filter so it will have 3 filters running on the tank (2 over tank and one sponge) and 2 heaters. My 3 angelfish juveniles will move...

    Stocking 40 gallon with Angelfish

    Why do you mention to skip the RO. I have very high PH based on my standard water out of the tap and wondering if the only way to fix it is to RO and add mineral.

    30 Gallon Build

    I picked up root tabs just incase. I have several plants on order coming this weekend. I am planting into my 30 gallon, into sand, and it should all but cover the bottom. I am hoping from what I read that it is enough plants to work off waste and clean the water.

    30 Gallon Build

    Do you use Root tabs with these and what type of lighting is required for them to prosper?

    30 Gallon Build

    Thank you, wasn't sure how attached plantings actually worked, so that is great news. How many do I have to put in attached to items to compare to surface substrate area to make the tank work less. From what I understand heavily planted helps break down fish waste, minimizes algea and plant...

    Double Red Apistogramma Agassizii alone

    Thank you so you think the apisto would have enough interaction without getting like fish? Right now he's in a 30 gallon breeder with 3 sephae tetras and 4 guppies.

    Double Red Apistogramma Agassizii alone

    Hi all, Still new here but question. I took in a lone double red apistogramma agassizii that was stressing in the tank it was in at the fish store. Now I'm trying to find friends for it and it's the hardest to do. My question is, can I go with a different apistogramma knowing they won't breed...

    Stocking 40 gallon with Angelfish

    I have not heard of the Laetacara araguaiae so that is an option and I am not set on the temp it can be changed depending on what I house. I may plant it depending on what is housed so if it is something that is going to tear up the plants than I will not plant but if it needs plants than I...
