    Corydoras with Gravel

    I use small smooth gravel in three tanks. My cories are always swimming about, hunting for food. They have reproduced in community tanks, and I have not had any problem with the barbels. I've had the same schools for about three years.. So I have no problem with smooth gravel. I have peppers...

    Best tank for Golfish

It actually lived for years in a bowl, as I remember! Anyway, I have a 40 gallon breeder and a 40 gallon hexagonal. I'd love to use the tall...

    Cobalt Aquatics Fish Food

    I was just browsing through a catalog from Dr Fosters and Smith and noticed a pelleted and flaked food from Cobalt Aquatics. The ingredients seem great and I was wondering if anyone has tried them. There's one post from last year, but limited replies.

    Thinking About Canister Filters...

    Thank you both for your quick replies. I will look into the eheim as well. The fluval is on sale at dr foster/smith for $106 including shipping. I thought that was a great price.

    Gold Gourami

    I've also read a lot about aggressive gold gouramis. I don't see that with mine. I have 3 females and one male in a 55 gallon tank with two angels. They have been peacefully living together for about 1 year now.

    My new fish have ICK, how do I get rid of it?

    Yes, once it drops off the fish, many newbies assume the fish is cured. But they have fallen off and now drop to the bottom of the tank where they reproduce into hundreds of free swimming parasites, ready to find your fish once again. So yes, you are correct, but they are microscopic so I'm...
