    Can some one tell me what this plant is?

    Plants Maybe Not Doing Well

    So I just recently (Perhaps a month ago) got into having a few plants in my tank. It is only a 10g tank and I am a beginner. I am noticing that my snail is going to town on the plant in the center. He eats it more than anything else. Also the plant has gone from being bright green to being...

    Tragedy.... Turned Awesome Experience/story

    So this morning I got up and went to my fish tank to turn on the light ( I am not fancy or affluent enough atm to have a timed light, I'll get there) and I notice that one of my guppies is laying upside in the bottom of the tank. I was stricken at first, and so with a sad hand, I went to grab...

    It's Time To Get Some Plants Or Something

    So this is my tank currently. It's a little 10g. It has 5 guppies and 6 shrimp in it. I am thinking about another guppy. But also... It's so... Well...bland. So I am also thinking plants.

    Question Plantable Substrate Over Rocks?

    So basic question from the uninitiated. I have a little 10g aquarium with 4 Guppies and 6 Ghost Shrimp. It has 2 medium pieces of lava rock and the substrate is currently medium pea gravel that I got from Lowes because I liked the tan color of it. Well I am wanting to add a couple of plants...

    Cloudy Tank?

    Ok am I going crazy or does the water seem cloudy. My tank finally stabilized and now this. Is it because it's finally in the last stages of cycling or perhaps something else? Fish seem fine. Should I cut back on feeding a bit and let it run its course or should I get a clarifier? FWIW there...

    Guppy Wedged In Rock

    So I turned the rock so there are no more exposed large holes. I didn't want to remove it in case it had good bacteria since I struggle with this tank. I don't have a breeder net. I did a 50% water change and dosed the water with prime according to their emergency Nitrite instructions. I was...

    Guppy Wedged In Rock

    So, after all my struggles and changing everything with this tank we added a lava rock. The guppies loved it. This morning I could only see 2 guppies in the tank, some searching led me to find one of the black ones stuck in a hole in the rock. The head and tail both facing the opening. I put...

    Cholla Wood And A Thanks

    I found a guy on Mercari that is selling Cholla Wood (5, 3-inch pieces) for $8. If I get it and boil it, there shouldn't be any issues in using it right. He says its never been in a tank and only ever rinsed. I just am a little timid, with my other issues going on, about getting anything, not...

    Change To A Natural/planted Tank?

    So as many of you know from my other thread I have been dealing with ammonia issues in my 10g tank. The API kit is on the way and I have been doing daily 50% PWC. My question is, will I make things worse at this point if I were to take out the purple and black rocks (blame my wife) and fake...

    Ammonia Troubles...

    So let me lay out what I am now realizing might be mistakes. 1)I have a 10g aquarium (I know the smaller the more issues and the faster the issues or so I have been reading) (It was the kit from Petco) 2) I cycled the aquarium using fish food and stability (was what I was told to do by pet...
