    Chunks taken out of longfin BN fins?

    Looking for some input on this random issue. This morning I noticed my longfin bristlenose had a long slit in his fin, like someone took a pair of scissors to it. No biggie, it's happened to my other one a couple times... but it seems as if the day went on more and more of his fins were looking...

    HOB suggestions for 40B

    I was planning on getting a new filter, an AC70, for my 40 breeder but it occurred to me that I should ask you guys for suggestions first because some filters don't fit over the rim of the 40 breeder and as a result the filter isn't flush with the rim and the output is higher up making the water...

    What Would Look Best?

    I'm currently in the midst of doing a rescape on my 40b. I'd like your opinions on how I should place my plants/driftwood. Should I move the 2 amazon swords together in the middle and place the java ferns/anubias (getting more) to the left of the tank? Or would it look better if I placed the...

    I just got back from my local fish store to get ich medication and they told me they have absolutely no medication for anything because the FDA is removing all fish medications from store shelves due to people using them for other types of animals. Now I have to wait another week to get...
