    Skirt Tetra Stress Management. Help!

    Hey, appreciate you taking the time. I think my issues may be caused by unsuitable tank mates, but let me know what you think. I have a 55 gallon tank w/ 5 skirt tetras, 11 tiger barbs, 3 danios, and 1 swordtail. Two of the tetras are starting to look malnourished. Most fish will come to...

    Finish Stocking 55

    Well I’ll skip the crayfish, and any catfish that get too large. Those are very cool, I’ll probably go for that. It sounds like I’m not overstocked?

    Finish Stocking 55

    Hey all, my 55 gallon has 11 glo tiger barbs, 5 glo skirt tetras and 2 zebra danios. Everything’s running smoothly. I’m thinking of adding a red lobster, a couple (2-3) more danios, an albino catfish, or a red tail shark. What, if any of these, should I get? Appreciate your input.

    Question Serape Tetras And Tiger Barb Compatibility

    I think you're right, more plants/cover seem to improve fish mood. Whatever you do, if you want active, happy barbs they say 6 is the minimum. I'm inclined to think 7-8 is the sweet spot. Do you notice 'anti-social' behavior from the barbs? Anecdotal barely relevant story: At one point I had 2...

    55 Gallon Tank My 'community' Tank

    I've read about frozen peas, the TB's are omnivores. I feed them some kind of seaweed/veggie flake. Either I should feed them more frequently, or they just prefer the real thing. Plants are cheap enough. I'd get them more when they're done, or try to grow some at the rate the fish are eating...

    Forgot to get that pic, I picked up two more glo tetras, everything's kosher even the danios seem content. TB's are eating my plants bare!

    I love those little 250 rice-poppers lol. I had an 08 cbr250, I still can't lean my 600 over as far as I could on that thing. Looks cool without fairings. It's the leftmost bike, Ill find a better picture.

    Thanks! I'll upload one when I'm home. Unfortunately don't have the decor picked out, just threw in what was in my 10 :emoji_cold_sweat: It's tough to pick a theme but I like that Brooklyn bridge by penn plax.

    Wow, I'm jealous. That's awesome! R6 is gorgeous. I've got a link for you, the Honda hurricane commercial from waaay back PS. For the uninitiated "The Ninja" is the premier bike sold by Kawasaki. I think it's hilarious for some reason.

    55 Gallon Tank My 'community' Tank

    Morning fish affecionados, I just added 14 tiger barbs to my 55 gallon tank. 8 glo-barbs from petsmart, and 6 green TB's from my LFS. Before this the only occupants were 3 glo tetras, and 3 glo danios. The 6 of them are a little uneasy about this transition. The tetras are much bigger...

    55 Gallon Tank Tiger Barbs Tiger Barbs, Danios And Tetras.

    Moved all 6 of my fish from a 10 to my 55 gallon yesterday. 3 glo (skirt) tetras and 3 glo danios, they seem happier for it. I will be getting a school of tiger barbs, I'm thinking anywhere from 7 to 15. If they can't play nicely I'll re-home the danios, and the tetras if need be. Question...

    Tank Backgrounds... What Shall I Have?

    I've been toying with the idea of siliconing a tile backsplash to the tank, or to a plate and put it inside or behind the tank. The backsplashes are very reasonable and look phenomenal.

    Aquarium Safe?

    Under hot water the residue does seem to be coming off, but as a few pointed out it's a pain. I'm gonna give them another wash for good measure, but I think they should be OK by the time I'm done. P.S short of ordering rocks selection is limited by me, Home Depot has nothing. A landscaper may...

    Will do, hopefully that gets the slick off.

    Aquarium Safe?

    Hey guys, I picked up these rocks from a craft store. They're matte with a slight shine, and they feel slightly oily even after a rinse. No doubt I'll have to clean them, but let me know what ya think. Thanks! -Bill

    You can get yourself a quality 250cc or 600 sport bike for under or around 3k. I always buy used, it pays to go with somebody who knows what to look for. As long as there's less than 25k miles on the tach, and it wasn't wheelied by some 20 year old up and down the streets chances are it's in...
