  1. ADF Setup

    It's been quite a while since I last dealt with anything in the aquarium hobby, my tanks and fish were all given away after I decided I was done for a while. Anyways, it's been on my mind for at least the last month or so that I would like to look into setting up a new tank, not for fish this...
  2. Fanatic’s Finless Friends

    It's been a while that I have been on the forum, so I decided that I would come back and finally start posting about my hermit crabs. I want this to be my official journal thread only about hermit crabs, and I do hope that some of you guys actually find interest in this because most of my...
  3. A Little Update

    Hello, to those that may have wondered where I went, well that's the what I am going to tell you. I haven't been motivated much in the fishkeeping hobby lately, and my tanks were becoming a drag to my daily routine, and I didn't feel as interested in them as I once was, and for that reason I...
  4. I Got A 75 Gallon, Is It Useable?

    I was recently given this oak 75 gallon tank for free, and it came with an odd shaped dent in the glass which made me think whether it was safe to use with water in it or not, what do you think? The damaged area only penetrates the glass by about 1/8 of an inch, so it's not major, and the...
  5. Cories Not Thriving

    I seem to be having some issues with my cories, some of them appear sickly and die later on after displaying weird signs, especially for the smaller ones in the group. There are about ten of them now, mixed albino and bronze color types, and most of the albino are smaller than two inches. The...
  6. Quick Help Needed

    You are looking at someone who doesn't test the tank water often, even though I used to prolifically test my water and worry whether the readings were safe or not, but now I really haven't been doing and slacked off for a while. I set up a brand new betta tank for a new betta yesterday, and the...
  7. Explain Plants To Me

    I have struggled to keep live plants in any of my tanks for quite some time now, and even though I feel at times that things are going quite well, it ends up being a short burst of good luck that turns sour pretty quickly, and things crash and burn. I used to have some live plants in a couple...
  8. Fish Don't Eat From The Surface

    Something that has always confused me, why don't my tetras want to eat from the surface? It's practically been like this since I first added them, but they do have very hearty diets, they just like to eat the food as it sinks, not from the surface as my previous tetras did. They are buenos...
  9. I Am Failing

    Hello, this brings me some uncomfortableness and sadness to write this, but things lately have not been going all that well for me. My newest betta, the one I just purchased from aquashella two weeks ago has developed a quite sudden and unbeknownst to me case of bloating which appears to be...
  10. Test Solution Harmful?

    I know that the aquarium test kit solutions can be harmful to your skin or possibly stain your clothes, but how concerned should I be if some of it dripped into my water or was previously on my skin and my hands went in contact with the tank water? I am asking because I was testing water, and I...
  11. Outdoor Tank

    I have just recently had an idea to do something with an empty twenty gallon long tank that I have just stored away doing nothing at all, so I thought this was possibly a good idea to think about. I thought about putting it outside and using it as a growth tank with livebearing fish like guppies...
  12. The Official Fanatic Journal

    I have started threads in the past which I thought would be my journals, but since I lacked the diligence to keep updated posts and pictures going, it somewhat became uninteresting to everybody. I feel like it's a good idea to make a good journal with all the pictures of tanks and fish, so...

  14. Fruits For Plecos?

    I have heard before that some people were offering their plecos with fruits like cantaloupe, apples, mangos, and honeydew, but I never tried it myself. What would you say about trying a fruit with a bristlenose? I would like to give mine a slice of fiji apple, thoughts? Thanks!
  15. Happy Birthday Luna

    Today, three years ago, my favorite betta was purchased from the store as a new beginning to my fishkeeping hobby. He was the most incredible betta, he went the world to me, we made so many deep personal memories together, even though some say it’s just a fish. Well, he wasn’t just a fish, he...
  16. Taking Tank Apart?

    Okay, so I have a 55 gallon tank, which is my hermit crab tank, and then I have a 20 gallon high as a topper, which is sitting on the top of the tank flipped over upside down. I left the bottom glass on it, and the open side is on the bottom so the crabs can climb up into the extra tank on top...
  17. Help What Could This Be?

    I noticed this strange white bump on my betta this afternoon, and I do not know what it is. I know that I may be great with bettas, but I cannot come to think of what this maybe. It appears raised on some angles, while also looking like a tumor.
  18. Hydor Theo Heater

    I am not quite understanding how these heaters work, can someone explain it to me? They seem to overheat my tank, and the temperature is set all the way to 68 on the adjustable knob, but the heater is roasting my fish at 80 degrees. Why could this heater be heating when the temperature is set...

    This may one day become an article, but this was written to give a basis of information, as well as some members may find this handy to bookmark to use in a thread when another member has a betta issue. Example ie. I have a betta who has fin damage, and he lives in a five gallon tank. What is...
  20. A Little Something Less Fishy

    You may or may not know that I don't only keep fish, but hermit crabs as well. I have been keeping them since 2015, and now I have a 55 gallon tank with a 20 gallon topper. Here are some of my most recent pictures for you to look at 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) Enjoy! Feel free to ask questions if you...
