    Got bad MTS. Is there a cure?

    It is a townhouse so luckily it has a small basement where I house my tanks. I didn't have anything going on in the basement before besides using it for storage so I guess now it has something to it :p

    20 Gallon Tank Alternate Stands

    I bought this Amazon shelf for about $55 and split it into two. Mine holds a 20 gallon on the bottom of one and a 29 gallon on the bottom of the other with two 10 gallons on top. You could reinforce it with plywood if you were worried. I put my heaviest tanks on the bottom so that if something...

    Got bad MTS. Is there a cure?

    I've gone from a small betta tank and a small guppy tank to a total of eight tanks in the span of about 2 or 3 months :oops: Whoops. The Petco dollar per gallon sale certainly did not help. I tend to become obsessed with hobbies once I find that I like them though, so I've definitely gone all...

    New Pearl Gourami! Sexing help?

    I saw this stunning Pearl Gourami at my LFS about a week ago but wasn’t planning on getting any new fish quite yet at the time. I stopped back in yesterday for some supplies and he was still there. I just had to get him! He is huge - at least four inches long - and has extremely long “feelers”...

    Can I keep all males?

    Ok, I've never had rainbowfish before so I wasn't sure.

    Can I keep all males?

    I am interested in the Neon Dwarf Rainbowfish and I'm planning what I'd like to purchase. I'm looking at getting a school of 6 to 8. Would it be okay to have only males? Would there be aggression issues?

    Weird Water parameters

    Do you have a pic of the ammonia test? The nitrites and nitrates are definitely zero, but if you have fish in the tank there should either be ammonia (if the tank isn't cycled) or nitrates if it is cycled. How long has the tank been up and running?

    Weird Water parameters

    It's very weird that they're all zero. Do you have a photo of the test tube results you could post?

    20 Gallon Tank First Fish-less Cycle, need advice

    Use pure ammonia instead of fish food. You can get this at a variety of stores, just make sure it's pure and doesn't make bubbles when you shake it. Only add a little every one to two days. You can use your test kit to dose the ammonia to 4ppm. I use flourish while my tanks cycle and I've never...

    Pregnant Molly...

    You can move her to the five gallon and let her give birth there. As soon as she’s done, take her out and put her back into the original tank so she doesn’t eat the fry. Keep the fry in the 5 gallon and feed them often if you want them to grow quickly. I feed my fry four to five times a day...

    Help Fin nipping v Fin rot?

    0.25 ammonia isn’t so harmful that it would kill a fish or impair them this much. It isn’t good, but it also isn’t terrible in the long run. Some API test kits also appear to read about 0.25 ammonia when it is actually zero. Sometimes shaking the ammonia bottles before testing can help with...
