  1. It's been a while, updates on my tanks!

    Hello everyone, it's been a little over a month since I've REALLY had the time to toy around here, but I just wanted to update everyone on what's been going on in my little aquatic world. I've closed down my 10 gallon and one of my 20 gallon's finally. 8 tanks was getting just a wee bit too much to deal...
  2. Surprise jelly bean parrots?

    So yesterday morning I woke up to all of my cichlids staying very far away from my convict and my parrot only to find this sight. I have no clue what to do with these little guys, obviously I don't want to give them to a shop because I know how jelly bean parrots are dealt with, do I just let...
  3. Peppered Cory and guppy fry?

    So I'm considering consolidating and getting rid of some tanks (primarily my 10 and one of my 20s) as it's getting a bit much to deal with as life gets busier. In one of my 20s, I have a school of peppered cories doing well with a snail in their planted tank. I'd like to finish stocking the 20...
  4. Restocking my 55 - need bottom dwellers

    It takes my LFS a little over a week to order me something typically, so in case I need to go that route I'd like to go ahead and finish planning on restocking my tank (for those who haven't seen my other threads, I had an ich outbreak and somehow or another managed to lose my cycle. I'll be...
  5. Zebras becoming aggressive?

    So last night with everything going south in my 55 with the temperature being raised due to an ich outbreak and losing a lot of my stock and my cycle, the only fish left was my danios, a goby, and my angels. Then my danios literally swarmed my Angel and bullied him to death. Is this a normal...
  6. Cycling 10,20,55

    So recently I did some testing (I usually test twice a week, before and after water changes) and realized that my 10 gallon, 20 gallon, and 55 gallon tanks aren't cycled. They always previously showed a cycle or that they were close to it (0,0,5+) but for whatever reason it seems like I had a mass disappearance...
  7. Sick Pictus cats

    This morning my girlfriend texts me while I'm at work saying that one of our cats had died this morning. I come home today and looked at the rest of them and the rest of the fish in the tank. All other fish in the tank look fine, but the pictus cats all seem to be pale and are covered in...
  8. Schooling behavior in sub species

    So I recently moved my school of long fined zebras to my 55 with my large angels, and while I somewhat worry about them being slightly nippy I'm also worried about them being intimidated by my angels so I'd like to up their school. My question is what kind of danios will school with them as...
  9. Little work in the 55

    So after doing a lot of research on my fish and future plans, I decided I needed to do some rearranging and rehoming to different tanks to reach the goals I want from my tanks. So now, my paradise fish are in a species only tank and I moved everything from my 20 gallon to my 55 and rehomed my rainbow...
  10. Am I really overstocked?

    I'm well aware that I shouldn't use aqadviser as a be all or anything, but for giggles I loaded up my tanks just to see if it threw a lot of warnings at me. Am I really this overstocked as the site suggests? My current stocking list: 2x angelfish (one marble one silver, approx 4 inches each)...
  11. What I feared would happen...happened.

    So last week I stocked my 10 gallon tank with some guppies and 2 mystery snails. While I was really hoping they would both be male or female and not a mix, my odds were off, and quick might I add (didn't know they laid eggs and hatched so quickly!). This afternoon I came home from work to check on...
  12. I love it!

    So like most newcomers, I had a really rough start with my tanks. I got into the hobby buying the wrong fish in the wrong tanks and that led me to having...well...7 tanks on my 3rd month keeping. It wasn't until about a month ago when I joined here that I learned in detail about the nitrogen...
  13. Help ID Please

    When I went out today to stock up on some female guppies at my LFS, I saw this little guy in with the Rams and Kribs labeled as a Jellybean Parrot. I've read up a little bit about these, and that they are supposed to be either pink convict / parrot hybrids (so like a double hybrid?), or that...
  14. Clamped fins

    I have 3 small betta tanks, 2 of which are on the same shelf. I've got their vision of each other blocked off by a large Angel figurine. These tanks are all recently set up, and before I had these tanks set up, these betas didn't have any heat or filtration. One, however, was sick when we put...
  15. Japanese Algae Shrimp

    I've never owned a shrimp before until recently, and I bought 2. One of them is just sitting on the giant castle in the tank, and the other I can't find. In the corner of the tank it looks like a shrimp skin, but has antennae and everything. I didn't know they lost these when they molted, so...
  16. My 3 non-nano tanks

    I just wanted to show off a few uploads I just made. My tanks will always be a work in progress for me as I learn new things everyday. For whatever reason the forum always seems to want to upload my pictures sideways...Anyway, here goes. First off is my 20 tall. It currently has a baby...
  17. Tiger barb with 4 American cichlids

    I'm considering perhaps getting a school of these for my cichlid tank as somewhat a dither fish. I don't want any of my fish to die (especially my cichlids) and am curious how many I could add, more specifically at once, and if they'd be a good idea with my current stock. I currently have a...
  18. My gourami is sick

    I just looked at my tank and my largest dg was at the top gasping for air. Then he'd zoom to the bottom and lay on his side, repeating the process. I don't see anything physically wrong with him except he is a bit bloated. Is there anything I can do?
  19. Finally!

    Just wanted to show off that I finally got my 75 up and running for my cichlids :-) more photos to come
  20. Second guessing Plecostomus type

    When I bought him, he was sold as a 2" common, which at the time I didn't know a lot better, but lately now that I've educated myself a bit more about it have been steadily transferring him up tanks as he's been growing (now in a 55, soon to upgrade to a 75), but after looking at him a bit...
