Calling all cory lovers.
I can't believe I've never seen these guys before and I haven't seen them talked about on fishlore either. Commonly referred to as skunk corys. C # C020.
Seriouslyfish has their temp range between 20-28 Celsius so I wanted to double check that with you all. I keep...
So I've had a 5.5 gallon tank sitting on my bedside table for what seems like months now.
It is currently fishless. It has some plants, a small piece of spider wood and some rocks.
I bought the small fluval co2 kit but have not added it yet. Was debating going high tech and mostly planted...
I have lost 25 cardinal tetras in 2 days.
They are in a 29 g and the only other inhabitant is a green phantom Pleco. He is now my main concern.
I'm thinking it's columnaris. There were no symptoms initially but I see one of the remaining 5 cardinals had a white growth around his eyes. I have...
Need some help understanding why I lost these two fish.
Newly set up 29 gallon tank. Fishless cycle completed and was processing 3ppm ammonia overnight.
Added full stock to tank within 1 week (mainly to avoid a QT) and was advised this would be ok.
I added 10 cardinals and a pair of A...
A long time in the making and we've finally got fish!
29 gallon tank
11 cardinal tetras
2 apistogramma cacatuoides "triple red" (pair)
1 green phantom Pleco L200 (will probably move to larger tank based on your suggestions!)
I went back and forth on stocking ideas but am very happy how it...
Hopefully you guys can help me.
I have 6 lamp eye tetras and a couple of them have some discoloration on their scales. I'm worried it's fungal.
They are in a 46 gallon community tank. Parameters constantly test 0,0,10. They've been in the tank for a year and have just noticed this recently.
I'm in the process of setting up a 55 gallon tank. I have another thread on the build but thought I should make a separate one for stocking.
I would definitely like:
1 EB Jack Dempsey or 1 EB acara as the centerpiece.
The rest of the stocking I really need some help with. I just saw...
Just got home from a day trip to the Baltimore aquarium.
It's incredible! Was so exciting to see fish (especially the freshwaters) in a replica of their natural habitat. Major inspiration for my new tanks!
I have a new 5.5 planted tank. Snail hitchhiked in on one of the plants. Now there are ten. Not too worried about them, they don't bother me.
It did get me thinking though...can they produce enough ammonia to help start my cycle?
