    Question Define "flashing"

    I always read this term on this forum, but not understanding what it means. By the tone of all the people saying their fish are flashing, I gather it's not a good thing.

    Question Neon Tetra Worth It? Your Opinions!

    What do you guys think about neon tetras? In my experience they are weak and overbread in the fish industry so half of the ones you get die within the first several days. They are cheap, but since they die and you have to buy so many of them just to get a decent school, they add up to quite an...

    Help Melting Jungle Val

    My jungle val in my 29 gallon tank is melting away. The leaves are slowly rotting from the tips down to the base of the plant. They then fall off and make a mess on the substrate. I am so tired of cleaning it up and it's been worsening over the past month. To top it off my filter broke last...

    Help Filter Broke... What To Do?

    Hey everyone, So late last night my filter for my 29 gallon tank stopped working. I'm not sure what happened, it just stopped. I'm going to take it apart and see if it's clogged or something today, but I doubt it. It happened so late last night I didn't have time to take care of it. So this...

    My Filter Keeps Sucking Up My Plants!!!

    Hey guys, I wish I could prefix this thread as "frustration." So my 29 gallon tank filter keeps sucking up the delicate leaves of my junlge val. It causes them to get all brown and soggy. I started adding plants slowly to my tank to see if I'd like them and I LOVE THEM! My plan is to add some...

    Question Diy Tank Stand/thrift Store Finds?

    Hey guys, So I've slowly been doing a makeover of my bedroom over the past year. Literally everything in my room is wood: wood ceiling, wood flooring, wood wall paneling, wood trims, wood closet doors, wood bed frame, wood regular door - you get the picture. I have painted over the wood paneling...

    Question Bringing A Betta To College?

    So most colleges say it's ok to have a fish if it isn't larger than a 10 gallon tank. Has anyone had experience brining their bettas with them to college? or a fish tank in general set up in a dorm? Did you regret it? Was it fine? Do you have enough time in college to properly take care of a...

    Feeding "rice Worms" To My Fish?

    Hello, I live in an area where my family can go wild ricing. We went yesterday and harvested 20-ish lbs of wild rice. Part of the drying process to store it is to lay the rice over tarps (we have 4 big tarps covered in rice!). There are little, 3/4 inch, tan colored worms all over the rice...

    How Likely Is It That My Corys Will Breed?

    Hi guys, I have 6 false-juli corydoras in my 29 gallon tank, and I was trying to determine what their gender was. 3 are new and are still a little small so it's hard to tell. My 3 older ones are definitely 1 female, and I think 2 males. That got me thinking, what if they have babies? I've read...

    Neon Tetra Acting Funny :(

    Hi guys, Just a couple minutes ago I realized one of my neon tetras is acting weird. I went to feed the fish and I noticed this one tetra is swimming while tilted to one side. It's gills are pink and slightly inflamed from the usual, but just slightly. And there is a small, white speck on one of...

    Algae On Cucumber: When To Remove?

    Hi guys, I have a slice of cucumber in my tank to feed my new ottos. They haven't discovered the cucumber yet and it's been in there for all of yesterday, over last night, and all through today. There is some white, flowing "fuzz" coming off of the cucumber. Is that an indication that it is...

    Otto Catfish Creating Tons Of Waste Normal?

    Hi guys, I bought 7 otto catfish yesterday and today they have pooped ALL OVER my tank! Is this normal? I mean, their waste is strung all over the place! I have read that this could be a sign of stress or sickness because they are supposed to have a low bioload. I want to do a water change to...

    Gourami Species Combo?

    Hello, This thread is completely for gaining more knowledge. I am not really looking for getting any more gouramis myself. However, I have 2 honeys in my 29 gallon tank as well as some other peaceful fish, (you can see the full description of my tank in my profile). I would like to add some...

    I Need Encouragement With Ottos.

    Hi everyone, After doing tons of research I've finally bought some Otto catfish! I'm so excited. I've been putting it off one, because my local pet store didn't stock them before now, and two, I've been so nervous that buying them would be a waste of money because everything I read and hear say...

    What Is Going On With My Betta?

    Hey everyone, I have been a betta keeper for many years and I pride myself to think that I'm an expert on them (Hope my joke goes well with y'all). Of course I'm not an expert, and I'm always learning new things. However, I do know quite a bit about these beautiful fish and their illnesses. But...

    Pearl And Honeys Together?

    Hi everyone, This is more of an educational question for me. Not that I’d actually do this. But I was wondering if a pearl gourami and some honey gouramis could go together in a 29 gallon tank. There is a ton of contradictory info out there about this. I’m not sure if it would be ok or not...
