    Skin Peel on Corydoras Advice

    Wondering what you guys think could be the reason for 1 Corydoras out of 14 to be looking like this? Can't say how long it's been like this, just noticed it. Could it be from digging up next to the dragon stone or would it be bacterial? If it's bacterial, looking through my storage, I have API...

    11 Gallon Stocking + Lighting

    Sold the 225 Gallon Tank and decided to keep an 11.5 Gallon Shrimp tank lol Wondering if it's large enough to keep a school of Celestial Pearl Danio, I know online it says 10 Gallons is the minimum but is that a fair enough size? Not a big fan of small tanks for this exact reason. For lighting...

    How to tell if it's safe?

    Yeah absolutely brutal, just money down the drain as well. Tank is so empty now. Had a separate tank that had a Discus pair which I sold a few days ago, so I threw them in there for now. I'll have to double check the parameters again but when I first noticed the ick I checked and everything...

    Fish Ick Inquiry

    Thanks everyone for the responses, very helpful. Ended up speaking with the Supplier, he admitted that he wasn't too fond of the shape of the RummyNose he sold me and that they were wild caught so they may have been carrying something else? From what I am seeing, the Cardinals and Rummy...

    Fish Ick Inquiry

    I am now dealing with Fish Ick again after everything was going good for so long, didn't quarantine fish from a seller who I've never had issues with in the past. Now in the past I've always done the heating method, 2 Weeks at 88F, vacuuming substrate every 2-3 days, and water changes. Have...

    225 Gallon Stocking Suggestions

    I'm going to go see if I can find them in person, I feel like they're the type of fish that can only be appreciated in person, cause I could imagine they'd look awesome in a large group. Yeah it was tough to let them go, but I think it was what was best. Because the size of the tank I kept...

    225 Gallon Stocking Suggestions

    taylormarie213 Thanks for the reply, I actually have 50 Cardinals in there at the moment, probably just missed that. I didn't know how much I liked Cardinals until I seen 50 of them together. I'd put another 50 in there any day. In regards to the Betta, yeah I made sure for 2 weeks straight...

    225 Gallon Planted Tank Build

    The Gyres are on a strict timer, only come on 3 times a day for 3 mins. Just use them to throw up any extra debris. I found them, even at low power they were a bit too much for the fish and the Discus weren't fans either. The one on the right is now turned off as well, the female Loves to lay...

    225 Gallon Planted Tank Build

    Tanks is up and running now, need to invest in an actual camera, the pictures are coming out horrible. Big issue right now are the plants, with the initial build, the plants were in colder waters a few months before the Discus arrived so they established strong roots and were doing just fine...

    How Long Does Left Over Food Take To Produce Ammonia?

    Had a question regarding left over food. How long does left over food take to produce ammonia? With the introduction of Discus in the community tank I've been feeding twice a day and the issue is a lot of floating food ends up in the overflow box caught in the strainer or in the sump sitting on...

    225 Gallon Planted Tank Build

    Decided I just wasn't happy with the tank, not enough going on for my liking. So I did the crazy and took it all down. Was a complete disaster initially, lot of yelling involved haha. But I think it was all worth it in the end. Not the cleanest pictures, still have some tidying up to do...

    225 Gallon Planted Tank Build

    Actually came from Vietnam, sorry thought I responded when I initially saw your comment. Was a bit worried at first but very happy with them, they looked real strong and healthy so I took the chance and have no regrets.

    Temporary Tank and lots of water changes

    Stupid me decided I wasn't happy with the look of my 225, just not enough going. So I decided to take down 1 of the mountains down and replace it with a large piece of driftwood. Of course it floated. Long story short, tried a bunch of methods and completely destroyed all the plants and the...
