    Betta/snail 10 Gallon

    thank you for this. Part of the reason we want a tank is for lights at night which I have been trying to figure out how to do. My son is afraid of the dark, and the light from the aquarium makes him feel safe, especially if he can see Needles Peedles (betta)

    Regarding stocking, I’m actually considering trading the Phoenix rasboras altogether and just getting maybe two more embers (8 in all). It’s kind of a shrimp tank, really, and the embers are just along for the ride.

    You just helped me think of something. If it’s an overload of phosphates, maybe I can reduce my ferts by 1/2. Or move to an every other week dosage. There may just be too many phosphates from that.

    10 Gallon Tank What do you all think of my new setup??

    I did that method. My rocks were not particularly porous either, so I did a diluted bleach bath to kill off any nasties, rinsed the tar out of them, and then I soaked them in 20x the prime for a couple days. It’s been smooth sailing in the tank.

    Thank you for the response. I haven’t messed with it much this week because I really need to buy some plants and I’m kind of in a holding pattern. I thought I may try one mystery snail once im cycled and see how Needles does with it, then stock accordingly. He didn’t like my amano shrimp, so we...

    Morning all. I’ve been doing some research on Cyanobacteria lately, and it appears I have the perfect storm. I read an article written by an individual on the forum and it suggested the following (of several options) to fix the issue: Add more fish to increase nitrates, increase flow, oxygen...

    i always told my students there aren’t bad writers—just unpracticed. I’ve had names as odd as Nislarommi and as plain as Tom. Lol. You just pick to fit their personality.
