    Planted Tank Stays Murky

    I will certainly go get a back for it tomorrow and hope that improves it! I appreciate the advice @GamerFish I'm also gonna start trying to get it moved away from the window entirely. This water problem is killin me! Ha

    Still In Research Phase

    Ahhhh now THAT makes sense. Okay SO if I got the 100 gal tank. Basically as of now I'd have nemo and marlin.. and the brittle starfish -- and I could probably get away with the damsel-Dory. Then as I got my saltwater life stable and flourishing.. which will probably take me a WHILE, I could...

    Is It Just Me?

    I felt the same way when I was new to fishlore. For sure. Now I just go ahead and lay out all the criticism myself in the post before other can comment the negativity. Given my posts now get a lot fewer replies, but at least my questions get answered when/if I do get a reply. But don't get...

    That is extremely helpful. I'm so glad I finally posted my question. I spent hours trying to just find a plain textbook answer. I'm not eyeballing any one certain fish right now. However, I do have 3 little girls (ages 6, 4, and 1) which means I'll probably wind up with the cast of Finding...

    Planted Tank Stays Murky

    I've posted about this before but I wanted to see if I could get any new advice as it's been probably 6ish months since the last time I asked about this. I have a 50 gallon tank that is planted. It seems as tho no matter what I do the water has a green tint and is murky/cloudy looking. I...

    Still In Research Phase

    I'm officially determined to start my SW tank. However, I am making sure I have a complete understanding of what I'm doing before I start. I have searched everywhere I know to search on FishLore and have not found an exact answer for my question. Google gave me some answers, but we all know...

    Sump For Dummies (aka Me)

    Does anyone have a link or anything that could post here for me to get to for explaining sump set up.. simply. I'm not the best at navigating FishLore Forums and I am trying to do as much research as I can. I trust FishLore more than I do google at this point

    50 Gallon

    @BottomDweller They're only aggressive when they've laid eggs, but with my off the wall parameters every batch of eggs has gone white with fungus. May be a different story if they ever successfully have babies. Do PetSmart employees really know anything? Honestly. I watched them sale a man...

    Showing Odd Stress After Water Change

    Lucky for me I am pretty sure I have Prime in my stock of stuff... pretty sure thats what it is bc it spilled in the drawer and you can smell it 10 feet away Prime is the one that helps with chlorine and such right? @IceFyre1414 Sometimes I feel like I know nothing at all about keeping fish...

    50 Gallon

    I know about the common pleco but I have like zero rehoming options Ive been trying. I am apparently the only one who keeps fish in central mississippi @alliet7151 He's pretty big right now, but seems to do well.. I know he needs like 1000 gallons to be sufficient, I'm actively trying to rehome...

    Showing Odd Stress After Water Change

    @BottomDweller I actually JUST posted in stocking questions about my stocks hahaha I'm always down for opinions tho, but everyone seems to get along fine (personality wise I mean) in all my tanks. Except for one of my dwarf gourami who hasnt had his top fin (idk the proper name) since a few...
