    Brown Algea And How To Get Rid Of It.

    If its not one thing with my tank then it truly is another. My newest problem is brown Algea, all over my glass(all four sides), all over my sponge filter, my live plants, my decor, my sand is black but I'm assuming all over that too. I tried scrubbing it off everything during last week's...

    Can't Keep Water Wisteria Alive.

    I had no idea wisteria needed to transition. I bought it from either petsmart or petco in those little tubes so maybe that is the issue. Do you know any other plant aside from Anbuis and Amazon sword that could thrive in my conditions? I really want some kind of plant that either floats at the...

    How To Change Filters Without Destroying My Cycle?

    Im not changing tanks just wanting more filtration. I thought about running both at the same time until the new one builds some gb. Won't running both create too much current and bother my fish though?

    How To Change Filters Without Destroying My Cycle?

    I currently have a Marineland HOB filter ment for up to 20 gallons and a sponge filter meant for 20-30. I have a 20g long but want to upgrade my HOB to one that can handle up to 30 gallons just to have better filtration. My current HOB only has a cartridge filter floss thing and a bio wheel. I...

    Can't Keep Water Wisteria Alive.

    So I started the aquriam hobby in January of this year and started toying with live plants about a month and a half later. So far the only thing ive been able to successfully keep alive is different types of Anbus, small crested Java fern and this type of carpet plant that almost looks like a...

    Male Guppy Being Territorial After Removing Females?

    Honestly if the aggression doesn't die down I'm going to have to rehome one, if not both of them. I started this hobby a few months ago only wanting guppies, then I discovered cory cats and im in love. When I had seven guppies it was almost impossible to feed my corys, which is why i rehomed...

    Male Guppy Being Territorial After Removing Females?

    Why all of a sudden though? Is it because there's only two of them? These same males got along great before I removed the others. I'm keeping a close eye on it, if it doesn't settle down or if the betta male starts exhibiting stressed out behaviors then I already have a home the alpha can go to...

    Male Guppy Being Territorial After Removing Females?

    I know this probably isn't the correct place for this topic but begginers forum seems to get more answers than the guppies forum so my apologies! Up until Sunday I had 7 guppies in my 20 gallon long(along with some cories and shrimp), three males and four females. Ive had them all for several...

    What Is This Stuff All Over The Glass?

    Is biofilm on the glass like this normal for new tanks? If I rub it off into the water would it hurt my fish? And I have one mystery snail and one nuisance snail, would they make a meal of it?

    What Is This Stuff All Over The Glass?

    At first I thought it was water marks from dripping water (after water changes) on the outside but now I notice its on the inside. After I realized that I thought maybe its marks from the air bubbles hitting the glass but I see that's its EVERYWHERE, from top to bottom and on all four sides...

    Water Reading Always .25 Ammonia.

    Okay yea, that's the kind of bulb I have in my current lamp. So just did a test and a low .25 ammonia, 0 nitrite and 20 nitrate. If the ammonia continues in this tank then it has to be false. The only thing I transferred was my filters, one small hide and the plants. Every thing else is BRAND...

    Water Reading Always .25 Ammonia.

    Uh-oh! When I first set up this tank in my room I thought it would be a good idea to open my blinds and let daylight hit my tank directly all day long. I learned quickly that you should absolutely NOT do that, Luckly it when quickly enough that I didn't experience any issue from it. When I open...

    Water Reading Always .25 Ammonia.

    The only plants i have "on the dark side"(haha) are some Annubis and they're only there because I literally have no more room on the other side. Im just going to go to Wal-Mart and get another clip desk lamp like the other one and put on that side until i can save up for an actual aquriam lamp...

    How Many Shrimp Can I Have In A 20g Long?

    Will they bother each other if there's that many though? As weird as question may sound my two ghost shrimp are both female, one is still carrying her eggs but anytime that get to close it looks like they are boxing each other and then one runs away. Is that fighting or normal behavior? (I've...

    How Many Shrimp Can I Have In A 20g Long?

    My current set up is 7 guppies, three albino cory and one lace cat and two ghost shrimp. After learning more my set up WILL SOON BE three guppies, six albino cory, two ghost shrimp. I got my two ghost shrimp last week to see how they would do with my guppies before I bought the more expensive...

    Water Reading Always .25 Ammonia.

    Like, last week. I have well water so I don't think it changes too much. I wasn't able to pick up any tss, only one store had it and it was the big bottle for 25 DOLLARS! considering i just spent almost 200 on everything else its going to have to wait until next pay period if I need it. I just...

    Water Reading Always .25 Ammonia.

    Are you saying I was claiming something that was false? Im confused. Where did anyone talk about the one inch per gallon or that fish only grow to the size of their tank?

    Water Reading Always .25 Ammonia.

    Respectfully, who are you talking to? Btw guys as of yesterday, with almost 4 days of no wc my ammonia raised to .50. I'm NOT cycled and it seems the .25 was not a false positive. Jesus its been TWO MONTHS. I really want this to be a direct result of it being a previous reptile tank and that...
