    Are they ready?

    I've had my two little swordtail fry in the breeder box for a month now. How do I know when they are ready to be added in the main tank with the rest of my fish? They are probably 3/4 of an inch to an inch long. Probably about the same size as some of my little neon tetras. I'm guessing size...

    Love is in the water!

    So last week I came home from work and found some eggs in my 10 gallon tank (they haven't hatched). Today I came home from work and found two baby swordtails in my 55 gallon tank!

    How Much Aeration For 55 Gallon Tank?

    Hi.  I was just wondering how much aeration you all use in your tanks.  I have a 55 gallon tank and use two bubble wands, each are probably 8-9 inches long.  It seems like there are a lot of bubbles though, even though I have the pump turned down as low as it goes.  Should I get rid of one of...

    How Much Filtration Is Enough?

    I have a 55 gallon freshwater tank with a canister filter but I was thinking of adding a second (power) filter. Is it possible to have too much filtration on a tank? It doesn't seem like it...but I'm relatively new to this hobby. Thanks for your help.
