    Yay! I've decided to get an oscar!

    So I'm cleaning out my fish tank in the next few days. Only thing I'm keeping is Silver dollars (3), A Ghost Knifefish, and a few small fish that will be food. I will probably get rid of the silvers, but I'm attached to one although I don't want to get more and I know there should be like 6...

    I need to get rid of this algae problem.

    I posted a while back as it was growing on my driftwood. Since then it has spread to other plants. I really don't want to do bleach solutions, I'm wondering what my options are. It looks like brown/black hair. image

    Do I need a filter?

    Hi! I'm starting out with 15 ghost shrimp in a 10g with 5 glolight tetras. The tank is fully cycled and is heavily planted. I do water changes about once a week, but I don't want the intake to suck them up. Do I even need a filter?

    Sooo.. Should I change the water if the perameters are ok?

    3 weeks, 10g tank, Ro water, fully planted, 20g rated filter, 1 fish (betta). Fully cycled, and the nitrates read low. Should I just replace the evaporated water with fresh water vs vacuuming and replacing old water?

    I actually stopped at my local petco for some neon or glo-light tetras to add to my betta tank. The employee that works the fish section, was trying to tell me that they were hard to care for, and pointed me towards some danios instead, saying that they were near impossible to kill. I know I...
