    Is My Glue Aquarium-safe?

    I have a super glue that says ethyl 2-cyanoacrylate. Pretty sure cyanoacrylate glues are perfectly aquarium-safe but is that the same thing?

    Min Tank Size For Pearl Gourami Trio?

    Hello everyone. I'm smitten by the beauty that is pearl gouramis and is thinking of getting them next. However I've been reading mixed reviews about how peaceful the males actually are (pretty concerning by peaceful gouramis' standard) so I'm planning to get a trio of 1m2f. In your experience...

    Plants And Water Chemistry

    As I understand it, it takes a super dense plant cover for an aquarium to have its water chemistry affected (in particular the three nitrogenous compounds central to our hobby). However, I was just wondering if someone can give me a brief lesson on biochemistry as to what nutrient from the water...

    Understanding Ph Shock, Its Myths, And Realities

    I'm relatively new to the forum so forgive me if this has been previously gone through but if it has, I can't seem to find the relevant thread(s). I have been wondering what exactly about pH that could cause extreme 'shocks' on fish and inverts if changed drastically over a short time period...

    Is Seriouslyfish Down?

    I've been having problems accessing our beloved SF on mobile (haven't been able to try it on my laptop) for almost the last 24 hours or so. The page would stop with only the main fish pics displayed and nothing else. Is it really currently down or is it just me?

    Friend's Tank Stocking Ideas

    My friend is cycling a planted 30 gallon (80×40×40 in cm) in her living room and she trusts me to stock it with a community. She has her heart set on cardinal tetras though so everything else has to work with it. We live in in a tropical country so tank water stays within 26-29C all year long...

    Which Non-melano Rainbows?

    There have been a number of non-melanotaenia rainbows that have been sold here and they seem gorgeous. I was wondering if anyone can gell me about their general care/difficulty level, especially from firsthand experience? I'm not exactly new to fishkeeping but have never worked with these...
