    Raising Kh For Mystery Snails?

    I know snails need harder water. I just tested my kH and after 5 drops it turned from blue to yellow which i believe is 85ish ppm. I'm fairly certain this isn't hard enough so I'd like some advice on how to raise the kH in my tank. There is driftwood in my tank which I believe is what lowered it...

    Hey there! I've just come into possession of a 40 gallon breeder tank and I'm not sure what to stock it with!

    There are two fish in a display tank that were donated a while back at the store I work at and I don't know what they are! There are two of them and I think it's a male and a female because one is super colorful and fun and one is duller but they look similar in shape. The colorful one is...
