    Assassin Snails killed by Pond Snails

    Wow this is interesting I use to have a snail problem but have since gotten 4 assassin snails and they have since disappeared.... Also the whole copper penny thing I would be careful with some fish that lack scales (corys, loaches, ect) can't handle copper

    10 & 15 Gallon Stocking

    Yeah I'm with Mike on no loches..... The 10 kuhlies I have in my 55 gallon often swim the whole tank 48 inches in seconds and will sometimes do it for hours on end but mostly only for 20minutes or so.... They seem to be chasing each other in a playful manner and no one has ever been hurt yet...

    What is this in my tank?

    One of two things..... Snail poop or diatoms growing..... I would think more looks like customs but I could be wrong

    Info on Tiger Oscar, Arowana, Bichir, Pleco and Shovelnose

    In my honest opinion if you don't have any plans for the fish leave the tank be. Yes its not practical for any of the fish inside but if you buy the tank you have to move the tank adding much more stress on the fish. Either pass up because you don't know what to do with the fish or get another...

    Plant only tank

    IMO I would still do the water changes. Remember water changes are just to get rid of nutrients its also to add some trace nutrients back into the tank.

    Help fill in my tank

    Chunky101 I had moss on my wood before but it just got out of hand. Maybe I'll try it again. Lobster cooker I actually had more green crypts but the other var. Took over and kicked the green ones out (weird). And I'll look into a carpet that can grow without CO2. Thanks for all the help guys!

    Help fill in my tank

    50 gallon is slightly tipped, testing to see if it holds water. Is this okay?

    I believe it all depends on certain things. My 55 gallon is slightly raised on the right side to where I notice it when my water level drops below the trim there first. Tanks been like that for 16 months or so now with no leaks

    Just don't understand it

    Been quite awhile since I've been on the forums here but if I'm not mistaken nitrates will rarely ever kill a fish that is healthy unless the reach unthinkable numbers (around 150). I know my 55 gallon tank stays at around 60ppm nitrates and all my fish are doing quite well for the past 16...

    Diatoms coming back?

    Well how old is the tank? Most new tanks get them. Also decreasing the light actually won't help diatoms like most algea diatoms thrive in lower light. But 12hrs is long in most tank though. Diatoms were in my tank for 1-2 months and haven't seen then since.

    What did I do right?

    Well I've had my kuhli's for about 6 weeks now and I've only seen them "glass surf" once after the first water change I did with them in the tank. The week before that water change they hid a lot and never came out besides at night. After the water change they come out all the time and are not...
