    Had A Really Bad Day

    Two of my Neon Tetras died a few weeks ago without me realizing and decomposed, which made the ammonia levels in my tank skyrocket and kill my pleco. Without the pleco keeping algae in check, it only took about a week for my tank get really disgusting. I came home from work today to find one of...

    My Pleco Died...

    A couple months ago, I posted about an 8-gallon hex aquarium that my neighbor gave me last October when his daughter lost interest (they were also moving). This morning, I went to feed the fish and I found my common pleco on its side at the bottom of the tank, and completely motionless. My pleco...

    It Begins (charlie's 30-gallon Aquarium)!

    I drove out to Natural Pet (Formerly Captain Nemo's) in Norristown after work, and they actually had a hood in stock that fit my secondhand 30-gallon tank perfectly! I probably will not be getting this set up for a couple more months, but it's definitely a start!

    Might Have To Rehome My Common Pleco...

    So, as I said in my other thread, I got a fully-stocked 8-gallon hex tank from a neighbor who moved. One of the fish is a Common Pleco. I just found out through some online research that my Pleco will easily grow to 20 inches. I want to get a larger tank, but I've been told that my Pleco will...

    Back In The Hobby After Over A Decade...

    The last time I had a fish tank was 2007. In early fall 2018, I decided I wanted to get back into fishkeeping. I started shopping around, and then in October, my neighbor (who knew I was shopping around) asked if I wanted his fish tank. He bought an 8-gallon hex for his daughter about a year and...
