    5 Gallon Tank Stocking For A New 5 Gallon Aquascape

    After a LONG 3 year break, i decided to come out of retirement and make a new aquascape. Currently I'm gonna stock: cherry shrimp, nerite snails, amano shrimp. I'm struggling to decide which fish to get. It's either a plakat betta or 5 scarlet badis (2:3 M/F ratio)

    Quantity vs Variety

    So today I sold my pygmies because I was feed up with the fact that I would never see them. 15 pygmies and I would rarely see 2 together at the front of the tank.

    Do plants such as amazon swords and crypts really NEED root tabs?

    Now I know alot of people who buy these plants and plant them in sand/gravel think they need to add root tabs to the substrate in order for them to grow. But is that really true. Do you need root tabs for 'heavy root feeders ' to grow. I came upon an interesting video on youtube that proves...

    Little Red: 2016 rescape

    Whiteworm vs Mircoworm

    So I have some scarlet badis, green neon tetra and pygmy cories. I wanted to know which would be better to culture and feed these guys. I here Mircoworms are easier but you have to replace the oats every week. Though with whiteworms you can change out the soil every month. The issue here is...

    I have made a big mistake

    So I was rescaping mytankand when I finished I added the betta back into the tank. Instead of getting my net to scope him up I decided to gently hold him in the palm of my hand and put him in. I had done this with my old bettas with no problems. But this time, his left pectoral fin isn't moving...
