    My 75 Gallon Tank

    Just wanted to share a picture of how my 75 is looking, figured this would be the place to do it! It’s been up and running since July of last year. Started out with live plants, they ended up either being devoured by my snails or died out. Added the plastic plants in January or February...

    Is It Normal For 3 Angelfish To Get Along?

    Hi all, I’m wondering...I’ve had my angelfish for a couple of months now. Started out with 4, everything was fine, then my husband and I went out of town for two days, came back and the smallest angel was MIA. I’m assuming it died somehow and my MTS and other snails ate it. BUT, that’s not...

    Can You Help Me Sex My New Gbr?

    Hello, I’ve been a little inactive on the forums since getting my 75 gallon up and running. I just bought a new German Blue Ram and was wondering if someone may be able to help sex him/her? I’m leaning more towards “her” because it looks rounder and I think it has shiny scales on its black spot...

    Mystery Snail — Male Or Female?

    Hi everyone! I've posted a few pictures of Lester on the photo page, but now I'm trying to figure out if Lester is male or female. Honestly, I think I'm able to answer this one on my own, but I'd love feedback on what you think s/he is. I'm pretty sure Lester is a she, but I'm no pro at...

    Nitrogen Cycle And Plants

    I have plants in my tank right now while it's cycling. My question is: will decaying plants help feed the B.B.? It looks like one of my crypt plants and some of the wisteria, both bought last week, are experiencing some melt right now.

    Having A Hard Time Reading The Tests...

    To preface this--my eyesight is really bad. I'd love for another set of eyes. I know it's hard to distinguish pictures because of the distortion of light/pixels/etc., but if anyone has insight I welcome it! Attempting a silent cycle (cycling w/o fish or "starter", plants only). Using API liquid...

    Water Looks Weird.

    I feel like I've been asking a lot of questions lately, but here's another: My tank water doesn't look right to me. Does this look like tannins, bacterial bloom, or just straight-up dirty water? The water is from a well. It has been treated with Prime. I have done nothing to start a cycle as of...

    Ph And Hardness Inconsistencies?

    Hi everyone! Still working on getting my 75 put together. Today, I tested the water that is in the tank, and noticed some inconsistencies. Our water (well water) comes out of the faucet at a ph of about 6.6, and 6 degrees of both KH and GH hardness. The water in the tank is testing the same for...

    Stocking Suggestions For 75 gallon

    So, I'm not actually buying any fish for a while as my 75 is still in the process of being set up and then needs to cycle, but I'm trying to find out if my idea for the stock sounds reasonable. I've looked at AqAdvisor, but I know that it isn't always reliable. The filter I'm buying is the...

    Starting Water Parameters?

    Hi everyone! I'm not really new to the hobby, but I haven't had a tank in a couple of years. I just bought a 75 gallon and am ready to jump in feet first! My question is about the water parameters of our water here at home. We're on a well system, and I just tested the water straight from the faucet...

    Need some help asap!

    I didn't know where to post this, hopefully it'll get moved to the appropriate spot. Anyway, I need help! My honey gourami got his ventral area (like the entire thing) sucked into the filter intake. I managed to get him released, but it looks like his whole belly is injured and his analfin...

    20 Gallon Tank Room for more.

    I have a 20 high, cycled, live plants, heating, air stone, etc. Current stock is 1 honey gourami, 5 neon tetras, 5 endler's livebearers. I'm pretty sure I've got room for more. What do you suggest I add? I'm stumped. I was thinking of tiger barbs, but I'm not sure if I've got enough room...

    I want to change my stock.

    I'm thinking about giving my clown pleco to my LFS. As cute as it is and as much as I love it, it doesn't really do anything besides hide, and I wanted something that I'd actually see from time to time. I know I've asked this before, but I'm wondering if I could possibly make it work. I'd...

    Something wrong with my honey gourami.

    Hi there, I have 2 honey gouramis, both male, who have had no issues with each other whatsoever. They're practically best buds. The past couple days, the 2nd one (Squeak), has been sitting at the bottom of the tank. Sometimes I can't even see his gills moving. He is still capable of...

    What the heck is this thing?!

    I just walked by my tank and saw this in there. I don't know what the heck it is. I have 1 snail, a zebra nerite snail, those can't reproduce in freshwater (as far as I remember from research). What kind of snail is this, is it harmful, does it reproduce asexually? I need to know everything...

    Can anyone sex these honeys?

    The first one, I think is male. The second one, I *think* might be female, but I can't tell. If you look closely at the first, the end of its dorsal by the tail is more pointed. If you look REALLY closely at the second, the dorsal seems a little more blunt towards the tail fin. It's hard to...

    Disappearing?

    So, a couple of my fish seem to have disappeared...like, if they were sick and died there would probably be a body, right? I've looked high and low in the tank and have found nothing. Endlers won't eat dead fish, will they? Even then, I feel like if it died overnight they wouldn't have enough...

    20 Gallon Tank New stocking ideas. Need input!

    I have a 20 gallon high, it's not highly planted but there are a lot of plants in there. It's definitely not lightly planted. I have an Aquaclear 50 filter, which is made to filter up to 50 gallons. Current stock I have in right now is 8 endlers and 1 clown pleco. I want to add 6 neons...

    Can someone ID these plants?

    I know the two in the front corners are anubias of some sort, but other than that I have no clue what all these plants are. They were labeled at the store, but I forgot what they are.
