    Help Two hiding danios

    Everything is 0 or real close to it on A/N/N levels. One of them seems to be coming out a little bit more, the other one has...... vanished. No clue what happened to that dude, haven't seen him in quite some time.

    Help Two hiding danios

    I have a ten gallon tank with six danios. Four of them do just fine, two of them do nothing but hide, each in their own cave. No sign of fin nipping, bullying, or anything like that among them. Had them for around two weeks. Not too sure what's up with those two, they don't even come out to...

    10 Gallon Tank Trying to decide what to get, plus overstocking question

    Thanks for the reply....according to agabr, I should just stick with the 3 guppies or the school of tetras. However, you (and a few others) seem to think 6 tetras + 3 guppies would be fine with frequent changes. I just don't want to over do anything and keep all the little guys alive, happy...

    10 Gallon Tank Trying to decide what to get, plus overstocking question

    I'm having a tough time deciding what to get for a 10 gallon tank. I was planning on 6 cardinal tetras, then 3 male guppies. Some have suggested get both, but there seems to be a bit of a question on if that would be overstocking the tank. I have never owned either types of these fish, but...

    Yep. Would definitely go with males so I wouldn't have to worry about bringing home a pregenant one as wellO0

    How Do I Adding fish to a 10 gallon tank?

    I wouldn't want to get a guppy if it wouldn't be all that happy without other guppies, so I guess the tetras for now would be the best thing (unless I change my mind and go for a few guppies)

    How Do I Adding fish to a 10 gallon tank?

    I'm going to be adding 6 cardinal tetras to a fully cycled tank. Do I add them all at once, or just get a couple more every few days? Also, considering a guppy as well....if I got a guppy, would it be safter to add the guppy first or the tetras first (or does it not matter)?

    Going to get some cardinal tetras for a 10 gallon...some questions

    Thanks a lot for the great link! Been using the API liquid tests. I have no clue what kind of plants I've bought. Some have come from local places, some from large chains, but the result is usually the same! I've even had quite a few java ferns not last on me.

    Thanks for the answers....got a bit of follow up info for you: 2) A cave and a couple of bridges at the bottom, java ferns floating around one side on the top, a chunk of that dense wood that's at the bottom that was there for the plec (can't think of what it is called). 4) Did a test...

    Going to get some cardinal tetras for a 10 gallon...some questions

    I've decided to get some cardinal tetras for a 10 gallon tank. Right now, there are no fish currently in the tank, but it is cycled and I am feeding it each day to keep everything fine in there. So now I present you with a laundry list of questions: 1) What is a good number for a 10 gallon...

    10 Gallon Tank What's a good community/school set up for a 10 gallon tank?

    Thanks for the advice and kind words....I had read that BN plecos usually live 7-10 years....losing him before two made him the first fish I've ever had that passed young. All other fish I've had, though, are bettas that have lived a pretty long life. I really appreciate the kind words...

    Very sick pleco I'm afraid, any advice?

    Nitrate 5-10, the rest 0s....this was after a 50% change though. Not sure what to think
