I’m seriously considering adding co2 to my 10 gallon tank but it’s really confusing so I’m looking for some answers here.
1) would this kit (Here) be good for me if I run a HOB filter, I heard HOBs tend to make you lose co2 or something like that because of the surface agitation? (Also...
Hey everyone, so it’s been a while since I’ve been active on here— long story short, my beloved betta Floyd died getting stuck between a decoration and the glass in his tank. I was so upset about it I really couldn’t imagine getting another fish. It took all I had just to keep the tank going for...
Okay so I ordered hornwort from aquatic arts about a month ago, but when it got here I noticed it looked strange. There were random globs of unidentified randomness on it so I decided to take a .5 gal mason jar I had around and stick it in there for awhile to “quarantine” it but I really know...
I was bored last night and decided to start a jarrarium with some extra rock and plants I had.
Anyone else have one of these? I’d love to see some pics!
Also, I’m thinking of giving a couple of them as gifts. I’m graduating in a couple weeks and I was thinking my thesis advisor would...
I’m planning my second tank and I’ve decided on a rimless UNS 9 gallon. Since I’m going all out I want to make it look as sleek as possible and I really like the look of a glass/clear stand but worry about it supporting the weight.
Do you think an acrylic table like this (pic...
I’ve been consistently getting this reading with my api test kit for ph. When I do the regular ph it seems to be near 7.6, but then I do the high range and I get 7.4.
I’ve been taking this to mean my ph is near 7.4, any clarification would be appreciated!

I have tried to attach a sponge to my filter intakes to keep the baby shrimp from getting sucked in but I haven’t figured out a way to get it to stay yet.
I have two berried shrimp in my tank at the moment so I’m a bit concerned. Will baby shrimp fit through this type of...
Hey everyone, I got 3 red racer nerite snails a couple of weeks ago. I reluctantly accepted the fact that I would have their white eggs everywhere but I haven’t seen any yet.
It seems unlikely I would have happened to end up with all boys.
Does this sound normal?
I'm planning on starting up a second betta tank this summer-- I want to do something big enough for me to add other fish, but still as small as possible because large tanks are unfortunately not feasible for me for a few more years. So I've been doing a lot of research and I think...
i added a couple bags of fluval biomax to my filter for extra filtration and to keep for a future second tank.
Just noticed it has a lot of brown and green on it. I’m sure the green is algae but not sure about the brown.
Is this normal?
I added 11 blue dream shrimp to my 6.8g betta tank about a week ago and so far I haven’t noticed any of them dead. My tank is extremely heavily planted though, so I only see around 4 at a time and I could have missed any potential bodies.
About a day after I put them in the...
Just noticed worm like things all over the glass of my aquarium and swimming around. They are extremely small.
I looked online but can’t figure it out. They don’t look like planaria to me.
I did tested my water a few days ago. 0,0,5
Inhabitants: betta, 3 nerites, 11 blue dream shrimp.
I realized some of you may be looking for driftwood so I thought I would start shipping it out.
I’m willing to look for specific sizes/shapes if you want. There’s a spot I go for driftwood that has tons to choose from.
I’ll send as much as you want for $5 + the cost of...
I recently switched my betta over to a 6.8 gallon and used the media from my old tank. I also added 3 nerite snails and some blue shrimp. It had a nitrite spike at first but I added safe start and now the levels are staying at: ammonia 0, nitrite 0, and nitrate 10-20 (seriously...
I got 11 blue shrimp yesterday and put them in my super heavily planted betta tank. Since there are so many places to hide I can usually only see 3 or 4 at a time.
I’m just worried some will die and I won’t know. Will their bodies mess with my water conditions?
I ordered 2 red racer nerites from aquatic arts. They got here today and I was surprised to find they sent me 3. Only thing is, one of them has a crack in his shell that’s a tiny bit separated and I can see his lil snail body inside. He’s the most active of them all ironically, will it heal on...
I redesigned my betta 6.8g betta tank today and added a bonsai and ohko stone. Not perfect but I’m pleased.
I’m going to change the placement of the tree once it sinks on it’s own so you can see more of the stones!
