    What Do I Put In My Mini Pond?

    Hi everyone, I have owned a 35 gallon mini pond since March and have planted it with water lettuce, water hyacinths, red root floaters, duckweed, and hornwort. It has two airstones and a fountain pump and filter box on the bottom. The question is what fish should I add here? I live in...

    Glofish Fin Damage

    Hi everyone, So yesterday I decided to do around a 20% water change for my family's 16 gallon tank. In here we have 5 Glofish and a pictus catfish. I know some may say that's too much fish for a 16 gallon but I'm working with what my family got... After I did the water change, I turned on the...

    Betta Dropsy Death

    Thank you, I figured this was possible and I won't completely give up. I have ideas for shrimp or snails in this tank now, and I've been cycling a small outdoor pond which is going to be exciting this summer. I'll definitely try to look for clove oil just in case.

    Betta Dropsy Death

    I'll definitely try a bigger tank with shrimp or something, but that'll be when I move out or something lol.

    Betta Dropsy Death

    I fed him bloodworms only. I had bought pellets when I first got him and he refused to eat it. What varieties of food should I try next time? I meant to say small tank lol but thank you. I only had very limited desk space

    Betta Dropsy Death

    Hi everyone, Today my betta fish died after 5 months due to dropsy. It was in a 3 gallon tank. The reasons I think he died was due to being overcrowded by the sword plant that grew like crazy as well as the big tank, and maybe overfeeding and/or parasites. I never saw the pinecone scales until...

    Pond Ideas

    I have a small pond half a mile down the street with what's rumored to have tiny sea bass but that's about it. Never been fishing there, only have seen people fish there once in a while but don't normally catch anything. Often we see some geese flying towards there, and when it starts to get...

    Pond Ideas

    Hi everyone, I'm Kevin and I was just introduced to this site today, I have been keeping fish on my own since the start of the year and since then have become way more interested in this hobby. My parents have kept fish since I was very young and I didn't realize how much work and how much fun...
