    How Would You Stock A 60 Gallon?

    I am stuck between the green terror and JD which would you recommend for a cichlid beginner? That would be stunning! But to me personally that seems like a tank that would look best heavily planted Firemouths interest me but I am unfamiliar with them, thanks for the suggestion I'll look into...

    How Would You Stock A 60 Gallon?

    From the research I have done I've seen anything from 60 gallonto 125g, I would rather be safe than sorry.

    How Would You Stock A 60 Gallon?

    Sorry I got my dimensions backwards! I was trying to copy and paste from the phone and it wasn't working with me lol I am really open to suggestions but I've been looking at maybe getting a single green terror? I kind of like the idea of having one big center piece fish. Or possibly a jack dempsey?

    How Would You Stock A 60 Gallon?

    I have a 60 gallon12.75 in L x 48.5 in W x 25 in H with an emperor 400 HOB filter and a marineland 360 canister.

    Goldfish In A 36

    I have a 36 gallon bow front tank and a Marineland Emperor 400 HOB filter plus I plan on building a 10 gallon wet-dry sump this summer. What is everyone's opinions on having two 6 inch Ryukins in that set up? Any rough idea on what kind of weekly water changes I would need?

    Adding salt for stress?

    No nothing new besides doing a larger water change than usual. I expected him to go through his usual tail ripping behavior but he has never had this extreme attitude change before.

    Adding salt for stress?

    Thank you! I never thought of that, I will be making changes to my routines. Should I try the salt or no? This is the 2nd day he has been acting poorly.

    Adding salt for stress?

    Because water changes stress him out so bad I try to wait as long as possible before doing them. I have been doing a 50% every 2 weeks, (the tank is cycled by the way). I had a massive outbreak of algae that was so bad it almost completely covered the front glass, I think I made the wrong...

    Adding salt for stress?

    I have an extremely stressed out male Betta, after every single water change (big or small) he always ends up stressing out and chewing his fins off. This time was worse then usual and now he won't eat or swim. He either sits at the bottom back corner or wrapped around the top of the heater...

    Total planted tank noob

    Thank for everything, sorry its took so long to reply I've been busy with holidays. You tank is awesome! Do you know of any good taller plants that are beginner friendly? Maybe something that would grow between 15 and 20 inches?

    If I bought larger "full grown" plants would I need root tabs?
