    Sizeable Fish To Live Alongside Angelfish Suggestions

    Maybe someone with this specific experience could chime in, but typically m/f/f works well. You may be pushing territory needs with 3 acaras, but 3 GBRs should work well.

    Sizeable Fish To Live Alongside Angelfish Suggestions

    I think you can do a single or pair. But, I would be more inclined to do single and avoid the male/male aggression or male/female breeding aggression. I'm sure their are fish keepers successfully keeping pairs in a community who would say otherwise.

    Jleem's 5.5 Gallon Tanks

    I would try a little less bright lighting, that can be stressful to a betta. Or better yet, just add a few floating plants to create shady spots and a place to build a bubble nest. I just found a betta to take home yesterday, white with a little blue on the tail.

    Shipping Question On Imperial Tropical

    I've had good experiences with Imperial Tropicals. They have been around a long time and are a great resource for fish. Just realize that those cheap rates are for 2-3 day shipping and not overnight.

    Why Do Cichlids Need A 55 Gallon?

    Well, I wouldn't call a 5" fish small, but african cichlids need to be overstocked (12 or more in a 55) to reduce aggression and they need space to swim away from each other when being aggressive. Yes, you could keep one in a 30 gallon, but that doesn't sound as fun as a bunch of community fish...

    Cichlid Enrichment

    You could keep him alone in 29 or a group of 12 or more in a 55. Overstocking is the strategy to keep african cichlids. If you keep just a few, they will fight to the death.

    15 Gallon Stocking Advice

    I feel like a betta, cories, AND ember tetra would be pushing bioload and space needs. 15 gallons is not a huge amount of water. I would pick cories and ember OR betta.

    15 Gallon Stocking Advice

    Actually the a standard 15 gallon is the same footprint as a 20 gallon tall and will fit the smaller habrosus perfectly. I would add 2 or 3 more to give them a nice group.

    How Do You Know When To Clean Canister Filter

    I just cleaned one of my canister filters that I procrastinated for a year. It still had good flow, still processed the toxins, and there was no mythical "nitrate bomb". I typically clean them every six months, but this is on a tank that has large sponge filters that I clean regularly. Most...
