  1. Question Centerpiece For 20 Gallon Long

    So, I’m looking for suggestions for my 20 gallon long tank. It currently has 8 rummynose tetras and some snails and amano shrimp. Centerpiece fish? I’m open to anything other than Bolivian rams. They’re crazy finiky at my lfs.
  2. Question Keyhole Cichlids For 20 Gallon?

    Hi all, So, recently my bolivian ram died, he was a single ram in the tank, along with some snails, shrimp, and 8 rummynose tetras. I’ve come to the conclusion that I want another centerpiece fish, as the tank looks empty with just the tetras. Would keyholes work? I’ve hear conflicting...

  4. Sick Guppy?

    So my guppy has been acting quite weird lately, so I qt’ed him for a little while, but he seems to have trouble swimming around the 3 gal qt, so I put him in a 1/2 gal container (fish safe) and he seems to be swimming almost on his side. I’m going to fast him for a couple days, but opinions? I’m...

    So, as title says, I found a pleco I though I’d lost. I’m going to keep this short as I need help with this guy asap, but this is the basic story. About a month ago, I got a small clown pleco, less than an inch long. I put him in my 3 gal quarantine (it was small but it was temporary). I did...

  7. How To Keep Water Quality Decent When You Aren’t

    So as title implies, I’ve been looking for ways to keep my fish safe while I’m not feeling good, my health has been declining (mentally and physically) and I have recently found it very hard to get out of bed and if I did that, change the tank water.

  8. Clown Pleco In 3 Gallon For Quarantine?

    So, can I? I would put him in my 10 gallon qt, but it has ‘the plague’ (not actually but it has been plagued with illness and I’m in the process of sterilizing it). It is only while he is in quarantine then will be in his permanent much larger home (30 gallon). I’ll do daily waterchanges and...

  10. Do Any Of Your Fish Bond With You?

    I’ve found some of my ‘bigger’ fish (I say that loosely, my biggest fish is a bolivan ram, so in terms of my fish thats my bigger fish. Even if he’s tiny) have great personalities! My bettas recognize me, and like to swim between my fingers while I clean their tank, and my Bolivian ram adores...

    So, one of my hermit crabs has been molting for a while, or atleast I hope he’s molting, i haven’t seen him in a while (almost two months) and I’m beginning to get worried. How long does it usually take them? They are about as big as the palm of my hand atm, I’ll see if my other one (not...
  14. Pale Rummynose’s In The Mornings?

    Okay I’ve only had rummynose’s for like, a month, so I’m far from an expert. I was just wondering if it was weird that they get really pale in the night/morning. I only notice it right when I turn the tank lights on but I assume it’s all night too lol. This is normal right? Just because they’re...
