    Question Curious about what happens with fish that grows without selling in Petstores?

    Hi all, This is just a quick and curious question, if a fish like an Oscar, or Cichlids or a common Pleco or Bala Shark never gets sold and continuously grow in a petsmart or petco store, what do they do with them? Hopefully they don't get "disposed". Was just curious, does anybody knows...

    That's exactly what you read, if you look from above she's thwarted like an S. Been with me for almost a year and seems fine / healthy / eating normally but her body is crooked and I was wondering if there was any explanation. Thanks!

    I was going to do that but its a big tank and I'll be using the Fluval 406 filter, won't it take at least a few days anyways? It holds a LOT of media inside.

    Best Fish To Cycle A 75 Gal

    Best Fish To Cycle A 75 Gal

    I'll be cycling a new 75 gal tank and I'm planning on adding Bosemani and Turquoise Rainbows, Neon Tetras and Harlequins once the tank is cycle. What would be a good fish to help speed up the cycle in the meanwhile? Should I wait a week or two before adding said fish?

    75 Gallon Preferences?

    What Kind Of Rock Is This?

    Thanks but I know very well what stability and clarity are. Been on the freshwater hobby for quite some time now. Was just in doubt about the rock since I'm a rookie in all things reef and this piece looks odd. They also gave me a bucket of sand/gravel mix together with some fake plants so with...

    Question Golden Killifish And Small Fish Question

    I have two separate temporary small tanks (two 10 gal) that I'm planning to join once I finish setting up my 75 gal permanent tank. I recently bought a golden killifish that was too gorgeous to let it pass and I'm keeping in one of the tanks together with some teen rainbows. In the other tank...

    90 Gallon Tank 90 Gallon Planted Tank Stocking?

    A big school of neon tetras or Harlequins would give a nice and interesting contrast to a full planted jungle tank like yours and also keep your maintenance to a minimum. They're easy to care. My two cents!
