    Fluval Flex 15 Gallon

    Hello, I have a 15 gallon Fluval flex that I want to stock. I plan to have shrimp in the tank either Amano or Red Cherry (Leaning more towards Cherry's for breeding). I need some recommendations on a fish that won't mind a smaller tall tank and won't bother the shrimp. I think Galaxy Rasboras...

    Additional Stocking For 15 Gallon Fluval Flex With Betta

    I'm looking for possible small fish I could pair with my Betta. I've kept cherry shrimp and harlequin rasboras with him before. The other fish never bothered him and he never bothered them, with the shrimp he chased a few here and there but eventually gave up. I have a large rock sculpture I...

    Will This Keep My Bb Alive?

    I don't need it too fast and it may not be possible for direct contact but I can try

    Will This Keep My Bb Alive?

    That's what I thought but it's always better to be safe than sorry. I'm hoping it being closer to the newer media will help it seed better.

    Will This Keep My Bb Alive?

    I just got a fluval flex 15 gallon to upgrade from my 10 gallon. I don't have enough outlets right now to run my sponge filters so I placed them in the back with the back filter. I put the sponge filters against the intake so water will pass through them. Is this enough flow to keep my...

    Can You Clean Old Tank Sand?

    I'm switching my 10 gallon for a fluval flex 15 gallon. I was wondering if it would work to clean the old sand in my current 10 gallon to re-use? The sand has gotten alittle nasty from stuff getting under the first layer. Or am I better off buying new sand and cleaning that? I have shrimp so it...

    Switching Cories

    Thanks, I've had some luck with them and if all else fails I know they would take them off my hands. Might as well see if I could get a deal out of it though

    Switching Cories

    I have a lfs I'm going to see if I can give them to and maybe get a discount. I want emeralds but I don't think 5 would be a great number as they love their schools. Pepper seem like a nice option.

    Switching Cories

    I am wondering what Corydoras would be suitable to switch with my Albino Corydoras that are in my 29 gallon. I have 1 dwarf gourami, 11 x-ray tetra, and 9 Albino Corydoras. I know I could do bronze as Albino are I think a different variation of bronze. Thanks for any help

    Snail Or No Snail

    Thanks I don't plan to add more than probably one snail and the one pleco so I don't see them causing a food shortage but I will still advise occasionally supplementing their diets with something besides just algea.

    Snail Or No Snail

    We have a large piece of driftwood he can rasp on and algae wafers and zucchinI are no problem to add. I was wondering as I'm not sure when the pleco will be added and the algae doesn't seem to want to wait for it either. Another problem is the tighter areas where a snail could get to easy and a...

    Snail Or No Snail

    I've been helping a friend set up a 55 gallon and so far all is going good but he is having an issue with green algea. The lights are on a timer set for about 8 hours a day. The main question is what snail would be best for a tank this size? The another question is should I worry about the angel...

    Corydoras Problems

    Well it's been awhile and Ive done my water changes and even cleaned my canister filter but I don't see improvement or further damage. The tails of the two still appear damaged and the missing parts fins are still missing. They all still move and shift through the sand but will also lay still...

    Cleaning Dragon Stone

    Lava stone is also really porous so it'll hold some BB to help your cycle. Make sure you still wash it really well as some things might be in the holes.
