    Question Plant Suggestions

    To be completely honest, I have no experience with keeping corydas and hornwort, although none of my oto catfish or plecos ate them (and they eat all plants). You do not have to wait weeks to get clear water if you wash out the sand very well. I just used a hose and a bucket, and went from...

    Question Plant Suggestions

    Choose hornwort if you want something big. This is one of the easiest plants to grow for me, and aquarium stores usually have it in stock. Although it may not look good there, I’ve gotten it to grow huge in my tanks, and it grows very high. One flaw is that it does shed some of its “needles” but...

    Thanks, I’ve actually never heard of feeding fry lobster eggs. I’ll have to check that out! I’m not very scared of the pair turning on each other, as the female has never turned on him, and allows him to be near her 24/7. I do have to do a water change in the next couple of days, however, which...

    2 Gallon Tank 2.5 Gallon Ideas

    Cherry shrimp are a great idea for a tank that small, and there are really good ideas for planted tanks out there, with no fish. Cherry shrimp and fish don’t match . In my experience, you can do a lot with a small tank with just plants. Look up nano tanks, they have a lot of great ideas, and...

    20 Gallon Tank Cichlid Fry Help

    Hello! I’m super happy today, as I came back from vacation and my kribensis pair have had their first spawn! There’s are seven fry in all, and I can say for sure that the mom needs to work on her parenting skills. While the dad stays near them all the time, the female will wander around, I guess...

    Question Male Krib Cichlid Pale In Color?

    Will my male color up a bit more? It doesn’t really matter to me but I want to make sure I’m not doing anything wrong to make his colors not show up.

    Question How Soon Is She Due?

    Okay, that’s a good idea. My male was very calm and stayed away from the girls for the most part.
