    What Water Condition Do You Use?

    Really interested to see what most people use here. I use Prime but I would really like to see if there’s any cheaper alternatives that do the same thing.

    Java Moss or Guppy Grass?

    That’s cool I didn’t know shrimp would go up to the floating plants because I’ve only seen them crawl around on my pothos roots and wisteria bunches. I was actually thinking of picking up some salvinia minima and making a section of the container have some floaters. I will definitely try to get...

    Algae Identification

    Yeah all I use is mechanical/bio filtration. I wanted to add carbon, but I don’t have room. I hate having to buy up all of seachem’s bottles so, Im thinking of switching flourish out cuz like you said there’s no phosphates in it and it doesn’t have any macros. Does thrive do good for you? for...

    Algae Identification

    Yeah, I don’t mind the GSA on the sides, but I will scrub it if I have to. Might have to order some algae pads too. It’s just annoying on the plants and I feel like the GSA on the swords is slowly killing them because I’ve been getting dead leaves lately. Plus, I just got a new Anubias and I...

    Algae Identification

    Thanks! Looked it up, that seems a lot like it. It’s always on the side that gets the most and intense light from the sun, but it’s only for like 2-3 hours. I’ll definitely try to do something. Also, I have cherry shrimp and a Nerite, who is always buried in the gravel, in the tank. Do you think...

    Algae Identification

    So I’ve been noticing these green spots on my swords lately. They’re like dots and I can scrape them off. They’re not soft, but they’re also not rock hard. Also, I have some sort of green algae that is basically similar to what’s on the sword, but it blankets the sides of the tank. What could...

    Unknown Guppy disease

    Were the white spots just dots or where they fuzzy in any way? The only other disease I can think of that might be similar to your condition is columnaris, however it seems as though the guppy that passed might have had ich and it spread already to the other guppy.

    Please help my betta, fin rot

    Have you tried aquarium salt? That’s usually my go to when it comes to treating fin rot. It works pretty well for me, although if anyone could check me, that would be great. As for the betta’s condition, has it been eating well and is it always laying at the bottom of the tank like that?

    60 Gallon Tank stocking Ideas

    I like the idea of gouramis more. I mean, angels are pretty and majestic, but if they end up spawning, they can get pretty cranky.

    60 Gallon Tank stocking Ideas

    I like the idea of rasboras, especially Harlequin Rasboras. They look great to me in a planted tank. But the again, there’s so many options for a schooling fish that would go great with your set up.

    Java Moss or Guppy Grass?

    Ahh okay that sounds good. I guess guppy grass is the way to go. I already have a bit of algae, which I do welcome, but I don’t want to have a huge mess. Also, when getting guppy grass delivered, do you think most sellers would have pest snails in them? I’ve been really careful lately with not...

    Java Moss or Guppy Grass?

    How well do you think Java moss would grow in an outdoor, pond setup? I’m thinking of leaning towards the plant that doesn’t require as much direct sunlight as the other. Any cool experiences with guppy grass? Also, do you does ferts with yours or do you just let it loose? If I let the Java...

    Java Moss or Guppy Grass?

    I need help choosing. I’ve never had both, but really want to see which one you guys prefer. I intend on using either with shrimp breeding.

    5 Gallon Tank Fish and shrimp? Or one or the other?

    Ive heard about shrimp escaping, although I haven’t had one escape on my end. As a precaution, I probably would put the mesh, but don’t worry too much, especially if you have plants.

    Hurt guppy

    It seems like Mem might just be aggressive. Some fish are just like that and need to be separated out. However, I don’t know what would cause him to lash out like that so suddenly. Is Mem bigger than the other two guppies? I have two male fancies and the bigger one chases the smaller one from...
