    Help New Betta Refuses To Eat & Just Floats Around Top Of His Tank :(

    Cycle Complete?

    If your pothos’ roots have access to the water I’d say that’s the cause. I put a pothos in every tank I build and the nitrates are close to 1 every time, even if it’s the only plant in the tank.

    Where To Find Slate/rocks

    Yes! I have used sea shells in my freshwater tanks after boiling for a good bit. No problems in my tank even after a few years!

    Show off your fish tank!

    Just set up my 20gal about 2 weeks ago! Everything is going pretty well so far.. no territorial fish and not too much fun nipping going on with my 5 Rosy Barbs. Also in the tank is one Powder Blue Gourami, 3 Corys, 3 little plecos I forget the name of, and two mystery fish I need help...

    Help Me Id These New Guys!

    I can't remember the names of the two grey guys with the black spot on their side.. american something? I'm thinking they look like a livebearer but I'm not sure! The orange boy in the last picture is a young Rosy Barb for size reference! Thanks in advance
