    Something Wrong With Peacock Cichlid!

    Hey everyone, As stated in the title, one of my cichlids has something abnormal going on and I'd like some advice on how to fix it. It seems that he has a white "blotch" on the top of his head near the dorsal fin that may be destroying tissue :nailbiting:. Funny thing is, is that he behaves...

    Converting 20 Gallon Hex

    Alright so long story short, I now know why people don't like hex tanks when compared to normal rectangular tanks :dead:. After I re-homed my angels I considered trying a crayfish or maybe a couple of African Clawed frogs but I think I want to give reptiles a shot. My tank dimensions are: 21"...

    Removing Copper From Water?

    Hey everyone, So I've recently gone back to live plants but cannot afford a co2 system at the moment so I've been using Seachem Flourish as a supplement. Now ever since I started using this fertilizer some strange things have been happening and the only factor I can connect this behavior to...

    Giving Plants Another Shot

    Hey Everyone, I haven't tried plants in a few years due to them completely messing up my 55 gallon and burning a hole through my wallet, but I think I'm ready to give it another try. I have a few questions to ask before I actually make any purchases. 1) I was planning on using a Finnex...

    Starting A Shrimp Farm

    Hey everyone! I'm in the process of stocking my 16g invert tank when I came up with an idea... what if I could make a profit off of farming shrimp? I recently read TaDaGe's website about how shrimp farming works and am currently intrigued. Granted, I would probably need more [bigger] tanks for...

    Nitrates Refuse To Go Down?

    Hello everyone. I have been battling a dilemma with my 55 gallon tank for some time now and figured it was time to ask for advice. For the past 3-4 months every time I measure the nitrates level it reads 40-80 ppm which is obviously not good. The tank is not heavily stocked and I've been doing...

    Shrimp/snail Colony

    I am currently running a 16 gallon tank with a Fluval C3. I've always wanted an invert tank but have never actually gotten around to setting one up. I was thinking about breeding snails (pond snails, mystery, ramshorn, etc.) as well as cherry shrimp to raise as live food for my fish in the 55...

    20 Gallon Hex stocking

    Howdy Everyone! So I came across a deal for a 20 gallon hex tank and I'm brainstorming on what to put in it. Due to the smaller foot-print and height-over-length it kinda limits my options already. I was also looking into invertebrates and I think I'd defiantly be interested in having ayellow...
