    25 Gallon Stocking Questions

    If you get any of the livebearers try to get all the same sex otherwise they will breed excessively and quickly overrun your tank. I've also heard that guppies and bettas don't always do well together because the guppies' long flowy fins can trick the betta into thinking it's another betta and...

    Planning A 60 Gallon Aquarium

    I have a really tall tank now so it wouldn't be much different in terms of care lol. The tall tanks fit better in the space I have too. Thank you for your input!

    Planning A 60 Gallon Aquarium

    I love the look of that tank and it would fit my space perfectly! I was super interested in getting that one but quite a few of the reviews said after a few months it started leaking. You haven't had any issues with it, though?

    Planning A 60 Gallon Aquarium

    That's very true. Working in customer service we always joke that it's only the people who are upset that leave reviews! Still wondering if it would be a good idea just to seal it again though since some of those sets had reviews of leaking. Couldn't hurt, right?

    Planning A 60 Gallon Aquarium

    Yes please let me know! It had decent reviews so it's the one I'm considering the most. Are yours just the Aqueon tanks? What stands do you use for them?

    Planning A 60 Gallon Aquarium

    My young pearlscale goldfish are growing up and I am ready to upgrade their tank. I am thinking a 60 gallon (or 65 if I can find one) since that is about as big as I can go in the space it would be going in. My question is, where do you all get your new tanks and stands? Petco and Petsmart...

    Driftwood Rotting In Tank?

    I'll try boiling it again but thankfully it's definitely not black beard algae (in my tank at least, can't say for the picture). Hoping that boiling it again will do the trick

    Driftwood Rotting In Tank?

    I didn't take a picture before I cleaned it unfortunately but looking at Google, this picture looks the closest It's darker and thicker though, not as translucent, and literally looks like if bark were slimey. It falls off in chunks and will just sit on my sand. I'm guessing it's some kind...

    Driftwood Rotting In Tank?

    Hi guys, I'm currently fishless cycling a 5 gallon future betta tank. I wanted it to be an all natural tank so the only decor in it is live plants, wood, rocks and sand. The problem is, the wood in my tank is completely rotting/falling apart in the water and making my tank look absolutely...

    I'm A Grandmother Now - Baby Cory

    My corys spawned for the first time a few weeks ago and since I'm not purposefully trying to breed them I left the eggs alone thinking they would soon be eaten. Well today I was doing a total re-scape of my tank and found a little baby cory, not even the size of pencil lead yet! I can't even get...

    Another Fancy Goldfish Question

    Even smaller types of goldfish like pearlscales that only get 6 inches or so? My biggest cory would be half it's size then

    29 Gallon Tank Stocking Compatibility Help

    Sorry to interject, but are Salt and Pepper corys not the same thing as Peppered corys? I've always heard they were just different names for the same fish

    29 Gallon Tank Stocking Compatibility Help

    I have 6 peppered corydoras and 6 panda corydoras, I just love them. They also need to be in schools of at least 5 or 6 to feel safe and have their personalities really shine. Keep in mind they can get about 3 inches, my guys started off soooo tiny and now are big and chunky. It's so fun...

    Another Fancy Goldfish Question

    Hi guys, I recently asked about if I could keep fancy goldfish in my 37 gallon tank eventually when my community fish in it pass away, but then I got to thinking. I have other tanks I could move my rasboras, otos, and ram into and they'd be just fine, my only obstacle would be my peppered...

    Fancy Goldfish Question

    Sorry if my post wasn't clear -- my tank has community fish in it now but I was thinking of putting goldfish in it when the tropical community fish eventually die off (hopefully not for awhile though). It would then be a fancy goldfish only tank, kept at appropriate temps for them. I follow a...

    Fancy Goldfish Question

    Super random question just because I'm curious -- I have a 37 gallon tank that is currently a community tank, but was wondering if I could maybe keep fancy goldfish in it one day? Perhaps maybe one or two smaller breeds of fancy goldfish like ranchus? Or would it be too small for them? I see...

    Help Cycle Crashed

    Just realized some of my post got deleted.. I sometimes overfeed my tank a bit to make sure my corys, snails and otos get enough food but it's always gone within an hour or so, I never see leftover food floating around and rotting. I have Caribsea Naturals sand and no real driftwood, but a few...

    Help Cycle Crashed

    Please help, my cycle randomly crashed and I don't know why or how to fix it now. My 37 gallon tank has been set up since January, I did a fishless cycle and once it was ready I moved my fish into it as an upgrade for them. Everything was going well until I added 1 new cory cat in which things...

    Does Vacuuming Bother Fish?

    Not trying to start trouble but I politey disagree. OP certainly has already drastically improved their quality of life by giving them double the space they had before, which is great! But knowing that goldfish are apart of the carp family and have the genetics to be able to grow to be a foot...
