  1. 75 Gallon Aquarium Setup

    I usually try not to buy fish further out than an hour drive, but that's just me.
  2. The marble gold angels have had their second spawn.

    Cichlids in general are amazing to watch with their fry. Congrats on the spawn, I look forward to seeing the development of this thread
  3. Angels or Discus

    Angels 'can' be easier to keep, but I've killed quite a few in my experience. You might get a few that are just 'angels', or you could get one like mine that just kills any other angel you put near it, bigger or smaller Discus, however, are very unforgiving from my research and can be quite...
  4. Throwback To Your First Tank(share your stories)

    My first tank was god awful, and it wasn't that long ago (little over a year now). I started with a 10 gallon tank, with 5 mollies, a betta, 2 flame dwarf gourami's, a paradise fish, a bala shark, common pleco and an angelfish. That's right...all a 10 gallon. Everything but the betta died, so I...
  5. Common pleco floating

    It looks like a common to me.
  6. adding a school all at once?

    To answer your original question without going into Stability VS TSS, go for it. 10 juvenile khuli's shouldn't cause a spike in a 56g at all, and you will want them to all be introduced together so that they can define a pecking order and you don't have any issues down the road. If you did half...
  7. my house is killing me! Reinforce floors?

    From experience, if you dedicate enough time and money to build 3 gaming computers, you're going to spend a great deal of time with them
  8. my house is killing me! Reinforce floors?

    Basically, if you're worried about a full 60 gallon fish tank, I'd be more worried about having a full couch.
  9. Jack Dempsey tankmates

    In a 55 gallon I wouldn't put any fish with it at all or you greatly risk the life of the other fish. The jack is going to claim pretty much the whole tank as his and will perceive others as a threat. Treyce107, I would rehome your jack dempsey and possibly your parrot. Jack's need at least 55 gallon to...
  10. my house is killing me! Reinforce floors?

    If my computers were in the basement, so would my fish tanks But you really shouldn't have to worry about your floors with tanks that small. I have a 55 and a 75 set up with no structural worries in a trailer. Even once you are looking at larger tanks over 100+g, you generally want to just...
  11. Tank size

    Definitely. Got a 40b and a friend to help install once I'm ready
  12. Tank size

    One of the fish shops nearby is offering a 220g tank, stand, hoods, lights for $1200, I just have to get some filters and heaters etc for it. Sounds like pretty much the same deal as you, sub lights for corner kits.
  13. GBR tank region

    Mine don't leave the mid-bottom even when it's food time. They'll just wait for the flakes to drop to their region.
  14. Tank size

    You'd be surprised what you can do with a huge tank <3
  15. stocking/compatability questions

    I've got a GBR, a bolivian ram, and a 5" powder blue gourami all in the same tank, happy as could be. The only concern I would have is with a 20, but with a 20L, I'd say you could probably go with a dwarf gourami (there are several different types), a GBR or 2, and a small school of corydoras...
