    Guppy Breeder tank

    So just an update: I have a 10 gallon set up with nothing in it except a little java moss. The temp is at 80 and I put 2 tbsp of aquarium salt in. There are 5 fry in there and they are doing well. I am feeling them powdered flakes and I did a half water change yesterday. They seem to be doing...

    What is the best set up?

    Thanks I put in the CO2 and the sensor is happy. As for the filter are you talking about putting the white floss bag without the carbon or are you talking about extra sponges for the good bacteria and are these white bags for filtration okay to use for extra build up of good bacteria if I just...

    Guppy Breeder tank

    I'm trying to set up a guppy breeder tank. I bought guppies and found out the hard way they are bullied by zebra danio (one male died). I still have 2 males and 1 female. The guppy is a Goleta guppy or Goleta dart. Anyway I quickly bought a medium breeder tank and put them all in there for the...

    RO Water Addatives

    The thing is I wasn't expecting to have to separate the guppies so I searched craigslist for affordable ones and can get a complete 5 gallon set up and there is also an incomplete 10 gallon set up that I am going to start getting the stuff for. At the moment the guppies are in a medium breeding...

    RO Water Addatives

    So I had to separate out a few guppies from my 55 gallon tank that were being bullied. Anyway I want to start up a new 5 gallon aquarium for them. I am also setting up a 10 gallon aquarium for plants mainly. I will probably stick with eco complete for the substrate and throw in driftwood and a...

    Help! pH too high.

    I forgot I have a bn pleco and I intend to add a rainbow shark. both of these say pH range is up to 7.5. Do you guys think that these guys would be okay in a pH of 8.0 as well? And I will not use salt of any kind. Thanks guys

    Help! pH too high.

    So I started my 55 gallon tank about 3 weeks ago. I put 3 bags of eco-complete in and put about 7 plants in the tank. I filled with de-chlorinated tap water using an API product. I used a quickstart bacteria (the local store said there was no advantage to not using it) and put in 10 zebra danio...

    Stocking Check and Advise!

    Hey everyone thanks again! Especially alink. I bought a powerhead/wavemaker that is good up to 75 gallons to get more circulation. So I bought a few of the fish and here is what is in the tank so far. 10 zebra danio (still might return about 4. They bullied the guppies at first) 6 Goleta guppies...

    Stocking Check and Advise!

    Thank you everyone for your help. I understand the shark might be aggressive especially with not enough space/ hiding places (I will add more) so a big question is still can 2 bn pleco and 1 rainbow shark be okay in the tank together. Tell me if this is okay if I up the filtration. 2 bushy nose...

    Stocking Check and Advise!
