    Tank mates

    Only about 60% stocked (less if the 4 in QT don't make it back) so depends on what you want to add, you could go for a couple of dwarf gourami or something like a group of celestial pearl danios, what are you looking for centre piece fish or another school of fish?

    Sad Thing Has Happened

    It's a shame you have to rehome your fish especially that Ram it's beautiful, but don't get too down, next year will soon be here & you can use the time to research, plan & to start gathering what you need for your new setup & before you know it you'll be putting it all together in your new home.

    Please Help! Alien In Tank! No Clue What It Is.

    I've seen them take large tadpoles in my pond, they're mean little critters especially the dragonflies, damselflies aren't quite as nasty.

    Please Help! Alien In Tank! No Clue What It Is.

    I don't think they're bad at all, in their adult form they're strikingly beautiful but their larvae are predators & will take small fish & shrimp, see if you can get a close up look at it, does it have a mean set of jaws?

    Please Help! Alien In Tank! No Clue What It Is.

    Hi, definitely looks like some sort of insect larvae, too big to be mosquito I think, more likely damsel or dragon fly.
