    Unknown Apistogramma

    I had an orange flash male but lost it during quarantine. The tail is more spade shaped like an aggassizii. It's just hard to tell without a male to compare it to.

    Unknown Apistogramma

    Can anyone tell me what kind of apisto this is? I bought it as a female cacatuoides orange flash but I'm pretty sure it's not that.

    Is A Hob And Sponge Filter Enough For A Medium Planted Tank?

    Mine is 530gph. It's about the same flow rate as a medium/ large hob depending on the brand. And it was under $10.

    Is A Hob And Sponge Filter Enough For A Medium Planted Tank?

    I just use one hob and a small wave marker on the other side for my 55g. I used to just run sponge filters.

    What Would You Add To This 10 Gal?

    Stocking is a very subjective topic. If you are fine with being a slave to water change you could put 20 neons in a 10 gallon easy. All depends on the amount of work you want to do.

    Bristlenose Breeding

    It wouldn't matter what i got really. My lfs doesn't keep a lot of albinos though so they would be nice to get.

    What Would You Add To This 10 Gal?

    At one point i had about 60 guppies in a 10 gallon tank. 50% water changes weekly. Not recommended but guppies breed like crazy. If you keep up on your water changes you could add a few more neons or a couple more guppies with no issue.

    Bristlenose Breeding

    If i were to breed a male albino bristlenose and a normal female what would be the outcome? Mostly regular coloration or a mix of the two?

    Lighting Efficiency And Substrate Color

    I recently capped some fluval stratum with a lighter colored fine gravel. The tank is noticeably brighter. Has anyone done any testing on whether the color of your substrate actually makes your light more or less efficient? Or does it just seem brighter to the eye?

    Seiryu Stones And Ph

    The rise in ph should actually make all your fish happier in the long run.

    Seiryu Stones And Ph

    All the livebearers will like it. The corys and barbs would tolerate it but would prefer a more neutral ph. Somewhere around 7.6-7.8 would be a good mid ground. All the livebearers will like it.

    Seiryu Stones And Ph

    What kind of fish do you have? Some actually like more hard, alkaline water.

    Seiryu Stones And Ph

    Adding chemicals usually just makes things worse. It'll constantly be going up and down. You could try some Indian almond leaves. Those naturally lower ph gradually. If it is limestone it'll only raise the ph to whatever the buffering capacity is. More rock=higher ph. It'll also give you a rise...

    Guppy Health

    Probably just old age. Guppies really only live for about 18 months. Less if they're breeding heavy.

    Seiryu Stones And Ph

    It will level off eventually. It's also probably your sand making the ph rise. It's very high in silica. Seiryu stone should be completely inert. As for the fish loss it was probably just from the stress of the rescspe. Ph has to rise very quickly to kill fish.

    Hitchhiking Frog

    If it won't eat i have a guppy tank i can put it in. That could help my overpopulation problem.

    Hitchhiking Frog

    I have sinking pellets that are a little too big for the corys and sink too fast for the tetras that it might eat

    Hitchhiking Frog

    So i got a bunch of dwarf water lettuce from my lfs today and when i went to put it in my tank i noticed a little albino dwarf frog. My stocking is 6 pristella tetras, 6 pygmy corys, and a clown pleco. Temp at 77° in a 20 high. Is this little guy gonna do ok in there?

    Converting 20g Freshwater To Saltwater

    I'm just trying to venture into the other side of the hobby. I've got 6 freshwater tanks at the moment and just looking to do something simple like a couple clownfish.

    Small Cichlids For Tank Under 80°

    It's only a 20 high so I'm limited to something the size of rams. I don't have anything in there that would be at the bottom besides a clown pleco. I was thinking maybe one of the smaller apistos but they might get a little too aggressive in a tank that small.
