    Tap water for salt water aquarium?

    I guess that's true... I drink my water straight from the tap all the time, and it seems to be fine, except for the new comers who don't build up immunity to the water here

    Tap water for salt water aquarium?

    My tap water is fine, and I use it for my freshwater tanks too. That or river water... I always end up dealing with algae, but my freshwater tanks have plecos and otocinclus cats too so algae isn't too much of a big deal

    Tap water for salt water aquarium?

    Okay, so I am going to get a big at least 55 gallon tank, and I want to have a saltwater aquarium... can I use tap water and use chlorine killer and then put in the sea salt, and mix it up and then pour it into the aquarium that way? because I know that people get RO water, and that's just a...

    Help Planning on setting up a Saltwater tank!

    I don't know if this is the right place, but I've been keeping freshwater tanks (all planted) for MANY MANY years now! And, I want to switch to Saltwater. Is there anything I should be aware of? Is it a lot more harder taking care of saltwater fishes than it is to take care of freshwater...

    Festivum cichlid and bolivian ram?

    I think the angels will be really aggressive to the Festivums... I have 4 festivums in with 1 angel and that is probably good enough because it's only one angel... gold gouramis are considered semi-aggressive and you never know... if the gouramis are in a bad mood they will chase the festivum...

    29 Gallon Tank Discus with Angels?

    Alright. I have at the moment one betta, 1 hatchet fish, 3 ruby neons, 3 green neons (really really really small both ruby and green) lots of live plants and about 4 oto cats. I'm guessing my tank is already full along with having live plants too.

    29 Gallon Tank Discus with Angels?

    I see. So then I can keep a discus in with angels? I hear angels are voracious eaters, but I've found a way to counter act that so that's not really much of a problem for me I'll probably go and get a discus today they are medium sized.

    Question Can these fish stay in freshwater while they are still young and small?

    Lol thanks for telling me that but I like my freshwater fish too. I do you think I can buy a 10 gallon tank and set it up as brackish? Or even a 5 gallon tank and put one or 2 Scats in?

    29 Gallon Tank Discus with Angels?

    Hello, I was wondering... since both discus and angelfish are from the Amazon and live together (somewhat) will the be fine in my tank? I have a good amount of live plants for them to hide in and I also have Festivum cichlids that won't do much damage to the discus at all either. Or will the...

    Blood red parrot stocking

    Hello, as many people said that tetras aren't good with Angels or BRP's is true Although Angels and BRP's are okay with each other because I have raised those two together before, and they aren't tempermental with each other either. You can add in gouramis along with Danios if you have a tank...

    Question sexing gouramis, and care questions

    That's good It's good to know that your dried bulbs are growing! I guess you'll have to give it another month or so for it to grow leaves. Oh I see. Well if your fish are still alive and swimming well, that is something good If they are sick, then you should probably buy a test kit. I...

    Question Can these fish stay in freshwater while they are still young and small?

    I see, I see. Do you think I can convert my tank into a brackish tank and take out my freshwater fish then? I don't know about my plants... if I take them out now, I might start a bacterial bloom and I hate that stuff

    Important My cousin put one green scat in with his fully grown angels!

    I know. That's why he is wanting to move the scat into a brackish tank later on when it gets larger. For now he wanted to keep on while it is still young.

    Important My cousin put one green scat in with his fully grown angels!

    Thanks I just told him to move the angel into the 10 gallon for a while. Although I think the 10 gallon might be a bit crowded since it's full of live plants but hopefully the angel will regrow some loss scales in no time I helped him do a big water change today. The scat seems to go crazy...

    Question sexing gouramis, and care questions

    I think you're right. Females have shorter dorsal fins while males have longer fins. Gouramis are usually from India, and South east Asia so that means they need a heater and lots of good strong light. You can get some live plants I think you do already. Anyways, gouramis are also labyrinth...
