    20 Gallon Stocking/Failed Betta Sorority

    Hey! So I currently have a 20 gallon that I've had for about 8-9 months and it's been a huge learning experience for me, way more than my smaller tanks. I've truthfully lost a lot of fish in it but it's now been just over a year since I started fishkeeping and it is indeed quite a hard thing to...

    Female apple snail mounting a male?

    Good point! Im not sure exactly, but I know the smaller female previously ate plants but that was when I'd just got her and was getting a handle on how much food she needed so i wasnt giving quite enough but now that ive worked it out she's stopped. My bigger one doesnt seem to eat plants as far...

    Bristlenose hanging at top of tank

    I broke down my 20 gallon to move it and then put it back up, the only thing i changed was the substrate but I used the same underlayer of lava rocks, all the same driftwood, same plants, same canister filter. I caught all my fish including my BN who i very slowly coaxed into a large tupperware...

    Moving huge plants? HELP

    So ive made plans recently to move my fish as the room they're in currently is just too far from my water source and it makes me dread water changes when generally I love to do maintenance but the hauling water around etc takes the motivation from me.
