    Converting a 20 Gallon Freshwater Tank to Saltwater

    I think I am going to start with a Fish only with some live rocks and perhaps later on upgrade to corals. Thanks for the info! Does anyone have any stocking recommendations? Also Mudminnow, you are saying I can just use water conditioner?

    Converting a 20 Gallon Freshwater Tank to Saltwater

    And I can just use the HOB that came with my set or do I need a more powerful one? It's the Aqueon Quietflow 10. Also do I need a protein Skimmer?

    Converting a 20 Gallon Freshwater Tank to Saltwater

    I have a 20 Gallon High Aqueon Freshwater Kit, and I'm just curious what it takes or even if it is a good idea to convert it to a saltwater tank. This is my first saltwater tank and I have 0 experience with SW, though a year and half of experience with FW. I am also wondering if it can be a reef...

    Getting Rid of Pest Snails

I was looking around online and people were saying copper sulfate, but couldn't I just dump some hot water into the...

    What to do with healed fish?

    Thanks for all of your help! Last question, my LFS has a sale on M/F pairs of Gerdneri Killifish, do you think those could work in the tank?

    What to do with healed fish?

    I have a flame tetra who was badly injured by some tankmates, and lost a pectoral fin. He can still swim, but not great. I have had him and the other flame tetra that was in the tank, and I am planning on relocating him in the coming weeks. The only tank suitable for them is a 10 gallon I have...

    Fish healing from disease, what to do now?

    I had 3 flame tetras in a 20 gallon with some bloodfin tetras, but one day I noticed that the bloodfins were nipping the flame tetras and attacking them. I took all of them out and put them into quarantine, dosing with melafix, aquarium salt and some stress-coat. One of them was fine, one of...
