  1. Stocking Help—Best Tankmates for Zebra Danios?

    Hi all, Does anyone have any stocking recommendations for a 20 gallon long with 6 zebra danios? I’ve had the zebra danios in the tank for a few weeks (I cycled the tank, then added three in, then added the other three after a week). This is my first time with danios, so I waited a bit to make...
  2. Help! Ghost Shrimp Is Actually Giant River Prawn!

    I'm relatively new to fishkeeping; I have a 5gal with a couple guppies that I got in late February. About two months ago I purchased a little ghost shrimp to add to my tank. The owner of the small LFS in my town told me they'd gotten some prawns mixed in with the ghost shipment, so he carefully...
  3. Ghost Shrimp Or Whisker Shrimp?

    Hello! I have an established 5 gallon tank with a fully grown female guppy and two adolescent female guppies. About a month ago, I picked up two ghost shrimp to add in. One of them only lasted about a day, but the larger one is doing well. In fact, he's thriving. He's going buck wild. About two weeks...
  4. Optimizing Filter Setup

    Hello! After almost 7 weeks, I've FINALLY cycled my first tank. It's a 5 gallon. Now that I've got all of the good stuff I need in my tank, I'm looking to optimize my filter for the most efficient setup. I have one adult fancy guppy and three 5 week old fry. Does anyone have any...
  5. Sick Guppy Help

    Hello! For the past couple of days my guppy has been getting progressively worse. She's staying at the surface of the water, bobbing along with the current, and usually hangs out right up against the filter. She is still eating and does swim quickly at times but I don't think she has much...
  6. Cycling Tank & Guppy Ulcer?

    Hello! I'm having sort of a fish fiasco tonight. I've been posting rather frequently about my tank cycling process. I'm now just over 6 weeks in my fish-in cycle with two female fancy guppies and three fry that occurred along the way... (taking the fry to my LFS once they're a bit bigger). On...
  7. Using Tetra Safestart With Prime?

    Hello! I'm almost 6 weeks in to my fish-in cycle with my first tank, a 5 gallon with two female guppies. I was doing 25% water changes every other day to keep ammonia down during the fish-in cycling process (my tap has 1ppm too so I wanted to make sure the fish are safe). I add a dose of...
  8. Week 5 Of Cycle-advice Needed

    Hello! I would appreciate some advice on my cycling process. I want to be sure I'm on the right track! I'm currently 5.5 weeks in to a fish-in cycle. It's my first tank, a 5 gallon with two female fancy guppies and 3 three week old guppy fry from a pregnancy fiasco that I'm taking to a pet store next...
  9. Another Pregnant Guppy Post

    Hello! I have 2 female Fancy Guppies in a 5 gal tank. I've had them for two and a half weeks. They're my first fish, and I adore them. After lots of research and reassurance from the lovely folks here, they seem to be doing quite well. So well, in fact, that on Friday morning I woke up to...
  10. Water Changes While Cycling (fish-in)

    Disclaimer: I know fish-in cycling isn't the best. I was misled by a large retailer and I've been researching & monitoring my tank nonstop to ensure safety of the fish. I posted two days ago in regards to my first fish tank. How often should I be doing water changes during a fish-in cycle? I...
  11. Should I Return My Fish?

    Help! I got my first tank on friday, a 5 gallon aquarium which has a filter & heater that runs at 78 degrees. I added API Stresscoat & Stresszyme to the water, ran it for 24 hours, and went back to the pet store for a water test (my town has a bit of a high pH but turns out my water is fine)...
