    Hey fish lore, I am looking to recreate the natural habitat of the wild endler in my 20 gallon high. I am not sure what to do but had some questions. How would some twigs and sticks look on a sandy bottom covered in leaf litter? They don't live in backwater right? Is there away to create...

  13. Happy Corydoras :)

  14. Important Opinions on euthanization?

    Hey fish lore, I have a very sad question. My 5 year old black neon tetra has lived a long life and a couple of weeks ago she began to show signs it was coming to an end.
