    Snail ID

    Lol! Dang it. So neither one is an assassin. I didn’t think they were “pointy” enough. Guess my head may be. Thanks for the ID. Back to the store they go! Edit: on second thought, they can go in the big tank. They’re kinda cute anyway.

    Snail ID

    Hello! I went to the store today to get an assassin snail. The worker thought that one of them was stuck to a rock and I went to go pick up some dog food. I have two snails and a rock. I’m pretty sure the smaller one on the left in the picture is an assassin, and the larger, darker one might be...

    Slowly adding sand / removing gravel

    Hi all, Posting this here because you likely know better! I have a fairly heavily planted 20 G Long about ~4 months since adding fish after fishless cycle. I have about 6 species of rooted plants all doing well (except some are getting fairly heavy with what I believe is BBA, lately)...

    Red Flame vs Honey

    Hello, I am looking for a pair of Honey Gourami, and stopped by Petco today and they had a few in a tank labeled "male red flame gourami." A bit of research and now I'm wondering, are these the same as Honey Gourami, but not necessarily the bright Golden color often shown when Honey Gourami is...

    Almost there... Ideas?

    The Tidal filter has great flow control. I don’t like keep too much current. You think a female betta rather than a male? Thanks for your input. The more I think about it, the Honeys with their usual yellow golden color and relaxed swimming style might just be pretty awesome. But so would a...

    Almost there... Ideas?

    Hey there! TLDR: What pretty and chill swimmer should I put up top with the cherry, neon, panda friends? 20 G Long, Tidal 35 & Sponge. I’ve been slowly stocking and planting this tank for a few months now, and I’m pretty happy with the plant situation and the fish are happy and healthy, ol’...

    Cryptocoryne?

    Cool! So, new aqua plant keeper question #2: would I cut the stalk just on both sides of the little bud looking thing and bury all of it and it should grow roots and sprout that way? Thanks, I appreciate it. Are they fast growers or am I better off just buying another for the aquarium if I would...

    Guppy Symptoms

    Hello, I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with the four guppies in my tank, but something ain't right--maybe you can help. These four have been in the tank for about 2 weeks (they didn't all come from the same physical tank at the same time, but the same shop which I've never had a problem with...

    Looking for a different answer... betta mate

    Hi all, just like the title says. I’ve been eyeballing a beautiful white betta that is living in a tank at the LFS with some other fish (some sort of tetra, I think). shes gorgeous and I’d love her swimming around my tank. It’s a 20g long with 8 neon tetras, 4 male guppies— and likely some panda...

    Anyone help ID this new resident?

    Huh. Where would it have come from and how long has it been in there, I wonder...? The 3 fish and mystery snail are literally the only living things in there, and they’ve been there for months. I did put a small piece of lava rock in there about a week ago, but it sat out of water for a couple days.

    Anyone help ID this new resident?

    Hello, I just noticed this thing, and it's definitely a thing, living in my 5.5 gallon tank. The tank has been established and home to 3 guppies and one mystery snail for 4-5 months. Those are the only things that have been in this tank since it came home from the store. It looks like a snail...

    20G Long New Here

    Hi all, Here's a picture of my new tank! It's been slow putting together because I wanted to cycle it without fish, and build it up in a minimal style for a nice little community tank. I started a few days ago with 3 guppies, 5 neon tetras, and one mystery snail. One guppy didn't make it...
