    Is This Stock Ok For 13 Gallon Tank?

    What filtration setup are you going to have? We are in the process of cycling a 15 gallon(fishless cycle), looking at endlers with shrimp. Look at ember tetras too. Making a single species tank may be the way to go. Take a look at the bio load of the fish you are considering, that can help...

    Dealing With A Dead Or Dying Fish.

    There is a sense of responsibility, especially if you've taken them out of a thriving tank/pond. So we do our best to provide a safe clean home and feed them good quality food.

    Ordering fish online

    We just ordered from Imperial out of Florida. I did a lot of research and thought they looked pretty good( care wise). Large fishery, family owned. I especially liked that they were in Florida , thinking that shipping would be faster and cheaper if they were near me. I cannot recommend them or...
