    Betta Problem, Help!

    At my local fish store they recommended Artemiss. Does anyone have any experience with that? Also, any idea if that is safe for a snail?

    Betta Problem, Help!

    I was afraid that my bacteria in the filter may have died, so yesterday I added more tetra safestart to the filter. I have a nitrite test kit, but not ammonia. The ammonia ones give me false positives, because I have to treat my water for chloramines and they show react to the ammonium that is...

    Betta Problem, Help!

    Hi, I had people stay in my house for 3 weeks and they were supposed to look after my betta fish. Things did not go as planned. Despite instructions, no water change was done and on top of that they even shut down the HOB filter. When I came home the tank smelled pretty bad and my betta seems to...

    Conflicting Info On Feeding Betta?

    The pellets look tiny, but then again I have never seen this pellet food before. They are made by Omega-One if that helps.

    Conflicting Info On Feeding Betta?

    Hi, I recently got my daughter a male Betta in a well planted, cycled 10 gallon tank. I have seen conflicting information on how often to feed him. I have the little Betta pellets. My endlers and guppies in my 20 gallon tank get fed once a day. On this site I found the Betta Care sheet which...

    Could I Add 2 More Guppies?

    I don't think they are going to grow anymore. I have had the endlers for a year already and the guppies came from a friend and they too are a year old. I will let the 20 gallon tank settle in for a while and then I might add a couple of Lyre Tail guppies. I love the way they look.

    Could I Add 2 More Guppies?

    The orchid endlers are tiny. Maybe 3/4 of an inch. The blue star endlers are maybe an inch, the cobra endlers are about an inch. The biggest ones are the 2 orange guppies, maybe 1.5 inches each. I may just keep it this way, since they all seem to get along. Maybe just add a nerite snail at some...

    Snail Infestation....

    Hi, I recently got plants in my 20 gallon tank and apparently they came with little snails. I have seen people suggest assassin snails on the web. Would these attack my red cherry shrimp? Is there some other method that will completely get rid of these pest snails? (Short of breaking down the...

    Best Way To Add Betta From Cup To Tank?

    I was worried that the cup would flip over or something like that. I will try floating the cup and then do my usual adding of tankwater/removing cupwater over an hour to acclimate the fish. Thanks!

    Underwater Or In-tank Filter Recommendations

    I have the underwater Aqueon AT 30 (). I have only had it up and running for about 2 weeks, but so far so good. The flow is adjustable, both in direction and amount. I have replaced all the media that came with it, with my own media and that seems to be working well.

    Moving 20 gallon/plant Substrate

    I just put two 15 lb bags of Flourite in my 20 gallon long aquarium. I really like the look of it, but the amount of washing it took prior to putting it in..... The stuff is really dirty. Each bag took about an hour of continuous rinsing with a hose. Next time I will use something else I think.

    Would This Be Overstocked For A 20 Gallon Long?

    I'm ok with the little ones getting eaten. Otherwise I will be overrun with shrimp.

    Would This Be Overstocked For A 20 Gallon Long?

    The shrimp are currently in a 10 gallon with the 8 endlers. There are about 20-25 of them. I think there is no choice but to have them breed , They seem unstoppable when it comes to reproducing.

    Would This Be Overstocked For A 20 Gallon Long?

    It is an Aqueon 30 internal filter. (not a hang on the back). There are no fish in there yet. Just water, substrate, a heater and the filter. Adding some plants later today and then this weekend I plan on adding the 3 fancy guppies with Tetra Safe start and media from another established tank...
