I was afraid that my bacteria in the filter may have died, so yesterday I added more tetra safestart to the filter. I have a nitrite test kit, but not ammonia. The ammonia ones give me false positives, because I have to treat my water for chloramines and they show react to the ammonium that is...
I had people stay in my house for 3 weeks and they were supposed to look after my betta fish. Things did not go as planned. Despite instructions, no water change was done and on top of that they even shut down the HOB filter. When I came home the tank smelled pretty bad and my betta seems to...
I recently got my daughter a male Betta in a well planted, cycled 10 gallon tank. I have seen conflicting information on how often to feed him. I have the little Betta pellets.
My endlers and guppies in my 20 gallon tank get fed once a day. On this site I found the Betta Care sheet which...
I don't think they are going to grow anymore. I have had the endlers for a year already and the guppies came from a friend and they too are a year old. I will let the 20 gallon tank settle in for a while and then I might add a couple of Lyre Tail guppies. I love the way they look.
The orchid endlers are tiny. Maybe 3/4 of an inch. The blue star endlers are maybe an inch, the cobra endlers are about an inch. The biggest ones are the 2 orange guppies, maybe 1.5 inches each.
I may just keep it this way, since they all seem to get along. Maybe just add a nerite snail at some...
In my planted 20 gallon long tank I currently have the following fish:
2 Male Orange Sunshine Fancy Guppies.
3 Male Cobra Endler Guppies
4 Male Orchid Endlers
2 Male Blue Star Endlers.
20-ish Red Cherry Shrimp.
I am planning to keep it like this for a while, but I was wondering if adding 2 more...
I recently got plants in my 20 gallon tank and apparently they came with little snails. I have seen people suggest assassin snails on the web. Would these attack my red cherry shrimp?
Is there some other method that will completely get rid of these pest snails? (Short of breaking down the...
My daughter has wanted a Betta fish for a while now and it is finally happening this weekend. She currently has a my old, fully cycled, planted 10 gallon in her room with 8 endlers and a nerite snail. My plan is to go buy the Betta, bring it home, move the endlers over to my 20 gallon tank...
I have the underwater Aqueon AT 30 (). I have only had it up and running for about 2 weeks, but so far so good. The flow is adjustable, both in direction and amount. I have replaced all the media that came with it, with my own media and that seems to be working well.
I just wanted to say thank you to all the people that have helped me over the last few weeks with all the questions I had about filters, gravel, fish, plants etc. After all the feedback I now have my 20 gallon long tank up and running. I have attached a picture.
I just put two 15 lb bags of Flourite in my 20 gallon long aquarium. I really like the look of it, but the amount of washing it took prior to putting it in..... The stuff is really dirty. Each bag took about an hour of continuous rinsing with a hose. Next time I will use something else I think.
