    I have a 20 gallon aquarium that has 7 harlequin rasbora, 1 male betta, 1 apple snail and a BN pleco. recently I have noticed that my bettas fins looked torn, and a few weeks ago I saw why - my BN pleco had been attacking my poor boy while he was trying to sleep on the bottom of the tank, so now...

    Very Low PH Level!

    So, I just tested my pH level in my aquarium and I was shocked to see that it was a very pale yellow color (6.0) I tested it again shaking the bottle well just to make sure I was reading it right and it came back slightly different at about 6.4 ish. Its not normal for my pH to be that low as...

    Would like one more fish for my tank?

    I have a 20 gallon tall tank with 1 male betta, 8 Harlequin rasboras and 1 apple snail. All my fish get on fantasticly, but I would really like to add one more fish, preferably a bottom dweller. I was thinking a BN pleco, but I think they might get too big for my tank? I don't really want more...

    Dominant Harlequin rasbora?

    I recently got a male betta and four Harlequin rasboras for my newly cyced tank (getting 4 more in a week, don't worry ). The rasbora and betta get on fantastically, but as I was observing my fish I noticed one of my Harley's was chasing the others, flaring and then going off by himself. From...

    Can I add all these fish in my tank at once?

    As my tank is coming to the end of the cycling process I've started to wonder how I'm going to introduce all the fish to the tank. I have an 18.7 gallon, and I'm wanting to add 1 Betta, 6 Harlequin Rasboras, 1 Apple snail and maybe 7 Pristella Tetras (If the tank size/bio load would accept the...

    Went to my local fish store, very happy!

    So, today I decided to go to my local fish store because i wanted to see if their bettas were better than the ones in my big chain pet store. I went in and couldnt see any betta tanks (here in NZ they are kept in little divided tanks, not cups.) Until I finally saw a betta in the corner of my...

    'Sea Monkeys' aka Brine shrimp in a 2.5 gallon bowl?

    So, today I picked up a 2.5 gallon bowl for a dollar at a garage sale (or yard sale/car boot sale - whatever you call it) thinking maybe I could put some aquarium plants in it and possibly a fish or two, but after doing some research I decided a 2.5 gallon bowl isn't really good for any fish. I...

    15 Gallon? 20 Gallon? 20 Gallon tall?

    [Sorry if this is in the wrong place] So, I always thought I had a 15 gallon tank. I put the dimensions of my tank in the calculator here on Fish lore, but when I did it said I had an 18.7 US gallon aquarium? I did a very quick amount of research and saw that maybe I had a "20 gallon tall" ...

    Betta + Harlequin Rasboras?

    Hi, I'm going to be getting a male betta once my 15 gallon aquarium is cycled and eventually I would like to put some fish in with him. I particularly like Harlequin rasboras, and wondered if it would be ok to have 5-6 in a 15 gallon with the betta? Thanks

    How to care for plants?

    So, at the moment I'm cycling my 15 gallon aquarium for my future Betta fish and eventually I would like to add some live plants as I think the Betta would really enjoy them. I was just wondering if you needed any special substrate (I just have gravel) or lighting? At the moment I don't have any...
