    Giant Danios And Blood Parrot

    I currently have a single blood parrot and small common pleco (5 inches) in my 55 gallon. I purchased him knowing he would need a bigger tank, with the goal being a 125 gallon as his final home. I plan on moving both of them to the 125 in the next year or two, and was wondering if I could stock...

    29 Gallon Tank Rummy Noses Dying One By One

    I can look into getting a test kit for the water hardness, I've just never needed it before now. Soonest for that would probably be next weekend. I have four from the original batch that have seemed to stabilize as they have grown and stay tightly together, even amongst the rest of them. Im...

    29 Gallon Tank Rummy Noses Dying One By One

    So its not uncommon to experience large die offs? Would the only solution be to stock until stable? Ive purchased a total of 15 fish but only 7 are alive at the moment.

    Holly Bush Root In An Aquarium?

    While doing yard work I came across an attractive piece of holly bush root that would look great in my bettas ten gallon. I was wondering if this would be okay?

    Missing Scales

    Getting the water checked will be crucial. The mention of a bigger tank for them is promising, but be aware you have about 60+ gallons worth of goldfish right now. While a 60 litre is definitely bigger than a 15 litre in size, it is not much bigger in regards to the goldfishs waste...

    Missing Scales

    60 litres=15 gallons. The tank is severely over stocked with 5 goldfish in there. Are you able to check water parameters? Most pet stores are able to check this for you if you bring them a water sample. They also sell kits. This would greatly help with deciding a course of action. Is the tank...
