    60 gallon cichlid tank

    4 fish is to many for a 60 gallon tank? That seems surprising to me. Is it the type of cichlid? If I was to start over again what are some smaller South American cichlids?

    60 gallon cichlid tank

    Mhm the fire mouth usually seems to just stay in his own corner and mind his business as the other 3 are always near each other.

    60 gallon cichlid tank

    I have a 60 gallon cichlid tank with only 5 South American cichlids in it. Every time I come over it seems as if they are fighting. I have watched videos of cichlid tanks that have 15-20 cichlids in them and they are doing just fine. Would it help with fighting if I add more cichlids that way...

    How to clean plants

    I was wondering if there is anyway to clean plants make sure there is no parasites on them or anything like that. I know for corals to do that they put them in bug killer for a few minutes then rinse them off really good. I was thinking maybe this wouldn’t work for plants. It might kill them...

    Snail Eggs?

    I have had these things all over my tank. I had a problem with parasites from the lake not to long ago. I’m wondering if they moved into my other tank and are in there also or are these snail eggs. They are underwater. I was cleaning my filter the other day and there were these things in there...

    Guppy gives birth 2 times

    I got my guppy from the store about 2 months ago now. After about 1 month it had 2 guppy fry. Now another month later it had a batch of about 15-20 fry. There is no male in the tank. I’m just wondering if they can have fry 2 times without a male in the tank. I have a killifish in the tank with...

    Is this a male pearl gourami?

    Yes. According to my calculations that does indeed look to be a Juvenile Male Pearl Osphronemidae. Or as we like to call them gourami.

    Ick Or Other?

    I had got a turtle not to long ago and I got him some feeder fish to put in his tank. My guppies then were very close to having birth so I took out the turtle and made it my breeder tank, and grow out tank. I moved all the feeder fish to my community tank. A few days after I moved them some of...

    Small Parasite Thing

    Oh that would be great! Just to kill all the worms and not anything else. Would it hurt the plants at all?

    Small Parasite Thing

    I think I’m just going to take the fish out and drain the tank for a few days. Or I might just crank the heater up to like °95 for a little while.

    Small Parasite Thing

    I has got some plants from a tiny pond on the side of a road not to long ago. It didn’t look like any fish lived in it, it was so small and shady. When I brought home some of the plants I started noticing little bugs and creatures in my tank. I’m the picture you can see one of them. They look...

    Treating Ick With Temperature?

    I would say to keep the temperature up to about 86° for about a week or so. That should kill the ick on the fish. But after that don’t think your tank is ick free. The ick is now in the substrate. Keep the temperature up for another week or so. During this whole process keep vacuuming the gravel...

    Oscar Loses Eye

    Ok I’ll try that. I was actually looking at it last night. How small are the actual pellets? I am just wondering if he will be able to eat it. He is still very small.

    Oscar Loses Eye

    Not really sure what to feed him. Since it’s only him in the tank it seems like it would be hard to make it fall almost right in front of him. How should I get it to him so he eats it, also what should I feed him.

    Oscar Loses Eye

    South African but yes. Also he passed away last night. I went to the store and got a new Oscar. Since I brought him home he has been sitting near the bottom. Also when he swims around, when he stops and he just sits in one place he like falls over sideways. Any reason why he would do this? He...
