    Bumblebee Goby Care

    most bumble bee gobies are raised in freshwater- and chances are if this guy came in on plants- he's been living in freshwater and doesn't require salt in his water. I have two in my freshwater 29gallon tank.. they are thriving and doing well.

    Am I Overstocked?

    IMO if you take care of your tank... and don't feed often you can safely overstock your tank, as long as there is no aggression and no one is stressed.. or going hungry.

    Office Tank Stocking

    the guppies will mate and you'll have a lot more fish. unless they are all males. then they will fight and nip each other.

    10 Gallon Dwarf Puffer Tank Question

    i have looked into pea puffers and 3 would do well in a very heavily planted tank and i think oto's would be ok to because they move fast and are unassuming. Here is where i decided i was no go on pea puffers- meal time- they are very picky eaters and mostly eat live snails - and i wasn't up...

    What Is This Pleco

    not all Placo's eat algae - huge misconception in the hobby. i'm not sure if i'm allowed to offer a youtube but Dustin's fish tanks on youtube did a video on Pleco's and what they eat and i believe yours was one of the species he talked about.

    Can I Put All These Fish In 10g Tank

    i agree i wouldn't put an ADF with these fish- if you have seen them eat- it's mouth wide open and dive! LOL they aren't aggressive they are just goofy and clumsy- they don't have very good vision.

    Can I Put All These Fish In 10g Tank

    I wouldn't take everyone's word for it here...id do a little research- but a 10 gallon is ideal for an ADF. People get a little overstock crazy around here. They like a friend with them- they feel safer and you'll see them more. I have two ADF and a betta in a 5.5 gallon- everyone is happy...

    21-hour-long Drive

    Fish get shipped for longer than 24 hours- in a bag with varying temps..normally without issue- otherwise there would be no fish in fish stores. IMO i think what you are doing is overkill for the type of fish you have. i would bag the tetra's, bag the pleco and bag the guppies in two separate...

    Betta Disease

    The two Petco's near me change their betta water one by one by hand- and bad news- most LFS get their bettas from the same place as Petco/petsmart and they all come in those little bags with the blue water. The only way to know you have a quality betta is to know your breeder.

    Buying Tropical Fish

    for the fish you want- you are better off getting from your LFS - you'll pay loads in shipping for fairly average fish.

    Treating Possible Columnaris In Habrosus, Are My Meds Safe?

    do you see signs of fungus or columnaris? If you don't... then your cories may have been wild caught and that is why they aren't doing well in your aquarium. I had the same exact problem- i got 3 - two died asap, then i got 3 more .. and 3 died... then i got 10 and i had 11 now i'm down to 5...

    Keeping Adf

    I wouldn't use sand.. i would use rocks.. the reason being is when they eat they just grab whats in front of them- this will result in them eating lots of sand. I had two .. a boy and a girl and they mated ALL THE TIME NONE STOP.

    Fish Dying Quickly

    the filter the OP has is cartridges and they need to be changed or they fall apart- they also have charcoal in them and if charcoal is old it will release the toxins instead of filter them out of the water. The best thing to do is put a new one in when the old is still in there for a few days...

    First Time Betta Owner Trying To Heal My Betta

    I dont know if this has been mentioned but keep in mind that a bettas stomach is about the size of it's eye - so it needs very little food and they dont need to eat every day. I have one betta that doesn't bother with his snail.. i have another betta and it bit both antenas off his snail- so...

    Lowering Ph For Wild Betta

    most natural way to lower your PH is to add Tanins to your water - alder cones, almond leaf, drift wood. Betta's love their tanins!

    Guppy Allimentation Problem

    as long as it covers and prevents the fish from jumping out then i see no reason why not. are you thinking like a large water lettuce or lily or something along those lines?

    Finally Finishing Boris Karloff's Home

    i think if a betta is comfy they don't need to hide. i like the driftwood better because it releases natural tannins in the water which is good for your betta. i don't know if the coconut does the same but i'm sure if it does someone will swiftly correct me! LOL! and what?!?!? too many...
