    5.2 Gallon - Need Nano Stocking Ideas!

    Hey FishLorians, I picked up a super cheap 5.2 gallon tank. Its got a filter, will have an eheim Jager 50W heater, and will be planted. All I know I want to stock right now are cherry shrimp.

    20 Long Or 29 Gallon - Help Me Pick And Stock

    After a move from Las Vegas a year and a half ago, and having no aquariums, I'm starting to get that itch again. I haven't made any decisions yet on size, was thinking 20 L for better light penetration for plants, but it's that or a 29. My issue is I have no clue what I want to stock it with. I...

    Need help with flow placement

    Hey Fish Lorians. I'm having an issue with always having free floating particles in my 85 gallon planted tank. Doesn't seem to make a difference what or how much I feed. I do weekly water changes, and just did a nearly 90% water change last week. It did clear up minor yellowing I didn't notice...

    Help me pick equipment for my first reef tank.

    Hey guys, I'm looking into starting either a 20 gallon long reef, with mainly inverts and maybe a small goby or blenny, maybe small firefish goby. I might do a 40 gallon, my biggest challenge there is being able to afford all the live rock and sand, and the fact that I still have yet to find a...

    Help me with a Hawaiian biotope.

    So, I'm starting to get the itch to jump into saltwater aquariums. I'm just here to ask a million questions and get my equipment list and stock plan together well in advance. I know it is advised for a beginning saltwater tank to be larger, but I'd really love to try a 20 gallon long. I'm...

    Need powerhead/circulation pump suggestions

    I have a few dead spots around the base of a few plants. I have a strong flow on my filter but the tank is heavily planted so I have a few spots that need some extra flow. I'm not in a hurry, I am upgrading the tank this month but anticipate I will have the same problem in the bigger tank. I am...

    What kind of crayfish is this?

    We got this little one as a surprise in a fish shipment today from a vendor based in Florida. I know there are tons of crayfish that come in but normally we don't get one bagged by itself. Help? image Almost white in color, no markings.

    Worm burrowing into side of fish?

    Or maybe burrowing from the inside out? I had a customer bring a baby silver dollar into my store today, and it has what looks like a brown circle with a white raised dot in the middle on it's side, right before it's anus. Almost right where a gravid spot would be on a livebearer. It is also...

    Crayfish in 5 gallon

    I have never kept a crayfish, so I have potentially dumb questions. I came across the Cajun Dwarf Crayfish and read that a trio can be kept in less than 10 gallons. Is there any truth to that. If one was eyeballing the Fluval Spec V that holds about 5 gallons of water, would on be able to house...

    Glutaraldehyde

    Hey all. So I bought this: It is the 28 day formula and it's concentration is 2.5%. I read different opinions on how much to dose so I thought I'd pick everyones brains here. I need the proper daily dose for a 55 gallon with a wet dry filter that adds probably 10 gallons. I need the...

    Willow branches

    I've currently got manzanita and another type of wood, not 100% sure what it is. Was browsing SaveOnCrafts.com and am really drawn to the willow branches to fill in a couple spots. Anyone have any info about their safe use in aquariums or how long they may last?

    Help me build a betta tank :)

    Hello Fishlorians! My mom has never had her own tank but has watched as mine come together and loves the plants. She's always kept a nice yard and garden but since she moved in with me in Nevada, her green thumb hasn't been put to much use. Well I scored a free 5.5 gallon glass aquarium. I...

    So I have a 10 gallon QT tank that I recently added 5 black phantom tetra and 2 german blue rams to. One gbr wasn't doing well when I added her and she passed during the night.

    A couple different questions.

    I have a few questions, not exactly all related but I thought I'd go ahead and make one big post. 1) In my 55 gallon, I have several swords, some crypts, vals, Java fern, anubias, golden jenny, and I think hygro. Anubias and Java fern are all glued to manzanita. I have always dosed with Seachem...

    Hara hara catfish

    I find different info about these guys. We just got some in at Petco and I was wondering if anyone could confirm the temp range and whether they like to be alone or in groups. Max size? Link to a good, trustworthy profile for them? Thanks
