    3yr old 20 gallon long.. what to do?

    Would anyone have any ideas on a single/pair of fish (nothing that will breed like crazy, I live in the middle of nowhere so won't find homes for fish) or something other than fish I could house in my 20 long? It's been setup for 3 yrs and since then i've done a 40 breeder south american...

    Meal worm living in my snail

    If you're talking about this, then Michael is correct that it's his breathing tube.

    Fluval 110 HOB is louder than expected

    My Aquaclear 50 was noisy when I first got it too. I think it took a month to stop making weird grinding noises, that's when I noticed the impeller had gotten gunk built up on it.

    Slowly Upgrading 55 To 75 Gallon

    I got a VicTsing pump from Amazon but you can use pond pumps from hardware stores too. Just have to make sure the lift height is the proper height for your tank/stand. Banana looks much bigger than 2" when he's on the glass! Love the blue eyes.

    Slowly Upgrading 55 To 75 Gallon

    I do the same thing. Got a cheap pump from Amazon that pumps to the height of my tank and everything is so much faster. I also picked up one of these plug switches just to plug the pump into so other things don't have to be turned off/I don't have to yank out the pump plug when I need it to...

    Question Angel with clear poop

    For the amount of info I tried to include, I feel silly for not mentioning his diet. He was getting a different diet in quarantine and has been eating only Northfin and frozen foods in the main tank.... so I guess transitioning to a new diet could be the culprit. I'm always on high alert for...

    Question Angel with clear poop

    I have some concern for my new Angel. I got him over 5 weeks ago and did proper quarantine procedure. As a preventative measure, I treated with PraziPro once and Levamisole twice. Since being moved to the bigger tank i've been able to notice more that a few times throughout the day he will...

    I just did it as instructions state, boiled some water and mixed it with the powder and put it in the fridge to set.

    Help Tank Sprang A Leak Overnight

    I'd be looking at the stand too, especially before you fill your new tank up. If it was uneven/sagging and not supporting that corner, the seal could of let go due to the pressure.

    Quarantine Tanks- How many in the hobby actually use them?

    I quarantine for 4 weeks. The main thing I look for is parasites, especially ich in the first week. I don't have anywhere reliable to buy fish from, so I have to be careful. I dose all new fish in quarantine with PraziPro and Levamisole because you just never know. I never treat for bacterial or...

    Help Making repashy properly

    The past 2 times i've made repashy community plus it didn't set and was still wet when I tried to cut it. I usually like it to be a firm gel to cut and put in the freezer. Is it possible mine has gone bad (even though it's in a sealed bag) or am I doing something wrong? How do you guys make...

    Help Bottom feeders for 45 gallon

    I feel like kuhlis won't be comfortable enough to come out with that many bottom dwelling cichlids. That's when keeping kuhlis can turn into, "when was the last time I saw them?". I find keeping tons of kuhlis more entertaining and peaceful than lots of cichlids.

    White spot disease on fish ?- not itch?

    I just want to add that I can definitely see a lot of tiny ich spores on the Angel in the first post.. on the rays and body. I wonder if the ich caused a bacterial infection from the inflammation/open wounds?
