    Moving To A New Tank

    Hi everyone, I have a 5-gallon tank with one betta, which has a serious problem with algae. I believe this is because of the location of the tank. I would like to move the fish, water, filter, gravel, and plants to another 5 gallon that I have in a new location; this new 5-gallon tank is...

    Update: He is shaped like a letter "C," and can't really swim. He is really trying to, but he gives up and sinks. It's very distressing to watch.

    Pothos, Dwarf Lettuce, And A Gourami

    Hello everyone! My 10 gallon blackwater tank seems to be thriving, and I just had two questions about my plants in there: 1) My pothos plant has *really* taken off (anyone ever play Resident Evil?), and the roots are nice and bushy, and extend almost into the substrate at this point. My question...

    Stuck Behind Filter, But Acting Normal Now

    Hi Fishlore! My blue dwarf gourami disappeared from sight two days ago, and I tried not to panic. This evening, I checked the floor all around the tank (though it is unlikely that he jumped out as the water is pretty low from the top of the tank), and even physically moved the tank stand back...

    10 Gallon Blackwater Stocking Suggestions

    Ok, here is another update for you: I have removed the BA tetras from the blackwater, acclimated them to my 36 gallon tank, and added them. They seem happier, they swim around quite a bit and are nice and colorful. I also purchased a blue dwarf gourami, acclimated him, and added him to the...

    10 Gallon Blackwater Stocking Suggestions

    Oh, that'd be ok, as long as everyone is happy. Yes, the BA tetra is larger, which is why I want to move them out of the 10 gallon. I feel like they would do better in the 36 gallon since they will be able to dart around.

    10 Gallon Blackwater Stocking Suggestions

    My algae eaters are in my 36 gallon tank, and I was not planning on moving them to my 10 gallon. Also, its funny you bring up frozen food; that's all the BA tetras currently in the 10 gallon will eat. They swam right by flake food. My algae eaters seem pretty good in their current home; my...

    10 Gallon Blackwater Stocking Suggestions

    Also, my little tetras tend to hang at the bottom of the tank. They seem healthy: they shoal together, they are not lethargic, they eat heartily, they are colorful, and etc

    10 Gallon Blackwater Stocking Suggestions

    CAE? I am not familiar with that term. The 36 gallon is the biggest tank I have, so I cant really relocate them at this time...

    10 Gallon Blackwater Stocking Suggestions

    Wow, thank all of you for your suggestions! I have an update: The tank is currently stocked with 3 buenos aires tetras, and I plan to add 2 more, plus a nerite snail. I know it seems cramped,but the fishies seem pretty happy and chill. There is, like, this weird layer film or something on the...

    10 Gallon Blackwater Stocking Suggestions

    What's up yall, I've just about got my 10 gallon ready to go; tomorrow I add the substrate, driftwood, and IAL (the driftwood and IAL have been soaking). I've got a small pothos plant growing out the top, and will add some floating dwarf water lettuce when it arrives. I really just am not sure...

    Neons Die - Except One

    Wow, thank you guys for all of your comments! Here is an update: I bought a small school of glo-light tetras and added them. They all survived except for one. And, when they started to shoal with the one remaining neon, it led to another neon coming out of hiding! So now, all fish are happy and...

    This is what I meant, tea colored water. It will complement the clearwater tank that I have in the same room. Dont go with minnows? What about a platty, or a dwarf gourami?

    Blackwater Stock Suggestions

    Hi Everyone, I have a cycled 10 gallon aquarium that I plan to turn into a blackwater tank in the next month or two. I think I understand most of what goes into setting up such a tank (driftwood, indian almond leaves, sand, lower pH, etc), but being as the tank is small, I am not sure how to...
