    Sponge Filter For 20 Gal?

    Would one sponge filter provide enough filtration for a 20 gallon (long) tank? I’ve heard of people using sponge filters in addition to other filters in one tank, but I’ve got kind of a weird situation and I think I can only use a sponge filter. My biology teacher is requiring us to make...

    Reducing Stress In Class Project Fish Tank

    Hey so I'm not sure if this should be its own thread, but I found out today that we're not allowed to use filters. Obviously I'm not going to follow that rule, but I was wondering if a single sponge filter would be enough to effectively filter it? I think a sponge filter would look unfamiliar...

    Best Plants For Beginners?

    I've not set up my tank yet, but it'll be a 20 gal with 6-10 kuhli loaches and a betta. I'm just trying to find good options to give the kuhlis a lot of hiding spots! Oh wow, I love the look of the water wisteria! I'll definitely be considering adding that to my tank

    Best Plants For Beginners?

    I've never had a planted tank before, but I'd really love to try! Are there any that are especially easy to take care of?

    Reducing Stress In Class Project Fish Tank

    Oh I'll definitely be doing weekly water changes and providing them with plenty of hiding places! I don't think I'm allowed to put live plants in the tank during the experiment (the experiment is to see how terrestrial plant growth is affected by being connected to an aquarium water system, or...

    Reducing Stress In Class Project Fish Tank

    So I've been posting a lot of questions about the aquarium that I'll be setting up, but I don't think I've ever mentioned that the aquarium is a part of a required school project. Most of the stories I've heard about this project involve the fish dying immediately, but I'm determined to give...

    Hand Feeding Kuhli Loaches

    I've read that kuhli loaches are easy to train to eat from your hand. This sounds really cute, and I used to hand feed my axolotl, so I like the idea! Is hand feeding safe for them, and if so, any tips on how to get them to do it?

    Dwarf Gourami With Kuhli Loaches?

    Oh wow, that sounds great!! Plus honey gourami are gorgeous from what i’ve seen. How many would be able to live happily in a 20 gal with 6 kuhlis?

    Dwarf Gourami With Kuhli Loaches?

    Oh awesome!! Follow-up question: how many gourami should I have in the tank? I’ve read that they thrive in groups of 4-6 but I think that would be overstocking the tank.

    Dwarf Gourami With Kuhli Loaches?

    Would a dwarf gourami be compatible with kuhli loaches? They’ll be kept in a 20 gallon tank, and there will be six kuhli loaches, if that helps.

    Oak Leaves?

    Would it be safe to use boiled oak leaves in an aquarium? If so, do the fish benefit at all from them?

    Telling Kuhli Loaches Apart

    Are you able to tell individual kuhli loaches apart, like from their markings or size? I’d like to name mine when I get them but if I can’t tell them apart I might just give them all the same name :emoji_sweat_smile:

    Quarantining Betta?

    I know this may be a silly question, but is it necessary to quarantine a healthy looking betta even if they're already sold in isolated containers?

    How Many Kuhli Loach To Add?

    I’m going to be setting up a 20 gallon long tank with one betta and six kuhli loaches. However, I was wondering if I should add more kuhli loaches, and if so, how many?

    Painted Pottery

    Does anyone know if painted pottery (like the kind of stuff you paint yourself and pick up a few days later) is safe for aquariums?

    Introducing Kuhli Loaches To Betta Tank

    I’m planning on setting up a 20 gallon tank with one betta and six kuhli loaches. Should I add the betta first and introduce the kuhli loaches afterwards, or vice versa?

    Fake Flowers For Aquarium?

    I was wondering if fake silk flowers would be okay to put in a fish tank. I've heard they're fine for reptiles and amphibians, and I think they'd look nice in a tank and give it a unique look. However it's totally understandable if I can't use them--I'm not dead set on the idea, just thought I'd...

    Marimos For Kuhli Loaches

    Ah, that’s what I thought, thanks so much!! Not sure why I thought it might be a problem, I guess I’m just being overly cautious

    Marimos For Kuhli Loaches

    I'm planning on setting up a tank that will house 6 kuhli loaches and a betta. I already know that marimos are safe for bettas, but would they be dangerous for any reason to kuhli loaches?

    Question Kuhli Loaches With Betta?

    Hi, I'm new here so I'm sorry if I posted in the wrong thread! I was wondering, would a 20 gallon long tank with kuhli loaches and a betta be a good setup? (I was thinking maybe 6 kuhli loaches, since from what I've read that's a comfortable group size for them.) In addition, I was wondering if...
