    Unknown Plant On Sale

    Hello everyone! My LFS got in a cool new plant, but as usual, the employee couldn’t tell me much about it besides it needs high light and iron, but does not need CO2. He couldn’t tell me the name of the plant but it was only $5 so I took it anyways. He’s not the most reliable employee so could...

    29 Gallon Tank Schooling Fish Suggestions

    Hello everyone! So my dad has decided to set up a 29 gallon tank in our living room. It will be heavily planted and I already have extra filter media to help the cycle. I know that my water is hard so my only question is about stocking. He loves neon tetras and may do a huge school of neons...

    Funny Pregnant Platy

    Rotala Advice

    Hello, my LFS has this “needle leaf” version of Rotala (sorry, I instantly forgot the scientific name). Has anyone grown it? The shop said under high light the tips will grow red so I’m tempted to try it. It’s only $5 and I’m thinking of adding it to my 10 gallon shrimp tank

    Question Serpae Tetra Feeding

    Hello! Yesterday I purchase a group of Red Minor Serpae tetras for my tank and when I fed them today I noticed that they turned paler in color while eating.

    Hello everyone! I’ve been keeping my Betta in a 10 gallon for a few months now and all had been well. However, the city has been working on my water lines and I found 0.5ppm ammonia in my tank through my “new” source water. I instantly switched to filtered RO water (about two weeks ago) but now...

    Recently I made a fish purchase and I picked up a hitchhiker. I’ve kept this fry for about 2 weeks now but I have no idea what it is.

    Dwarf Baby Tears

    I recently purchased some DBT from my LSF along with some extra fine planting substrate. However my cories are EXTRA intrigued by the new plant and keep uprooting them. If fish could look guilty then my cories do— especially since I’ve seen them shift through the soil so much that the DBTs float...

    I’ve been researching Honey Gouramis online and my pet store does keep them but I wanted to hear more about them before I decide to buy a pair. I currently have a 20g high tank that’s moderately planted with Otos and Danios. However, I’m unsure if the gouramis would be happy with the danios...
