    What Kind Of Light Bulb Would Be Good For Plants In A Jar

    Not sure if this is the right section to post in, but it's about growing plants soooo long story short, my next little project is going to be a 2gal planted walstad cookie jar to be later populated with some shrimp. I'm looking into all the supplies I will need and I have most of them already...

I know that outdoor extensions can get wet, but I was worried about.. where the pump would plug in.. i'm not sure what it's called, the plug connection. Anyway, I didn't know this...

Another giant poem incoming, brace yourselves lol This morning I found 2 more dead guppies, one of them was the big guy that came back to life yesterday, I didn't expect him to survive the night.

    Guppy Death After Water Change

    I know this sounds bad, but this would be a great relief for me if guppies are just not that hardy anymore. I really thought I did everything right, and you hear about kids neglecting their fish and the fish still live somehow, but I worry and stress over these fish and take so much care of them...

    Is This Velvet On My Betta?

    Thank you for the replies! Thank you, that's good to hear, the main reason I thought this was velvet was the golden shine, it looked kinda like someone sprinkled her with tiny golden glitter, but only where her blue scales are and some on her head. But she's exhibiting no other symptoms, I...

    Is This Velvet On My Betta?

    Hello, I'm new to the forums. I have looked at many many velvet pictures and in some you can clearly see the small dots of the parasite, but others the fish just shines gold and it's hard for me to tell because this is also my first betta, and while I'm trying my hardest, I'm not very...
