    Help Ahh! Hitchhikers?!

    Alright.. Asking for help... I've noticed at least 3 of these super tiny little guys in my tank today. What kind of snail are they and are they harmful!? Excuse the super tiny picture, but this is the one I was able to pull out of my tank today. I don't really want any more and I'm sure they're...

    Water Changes - Tss??

    I suppose I'm just looking for verification... Currently, I have a 20 gal tank. I usually do 20-30% water changes weekly. I dose the tank itself with 2 mL of Prime, then add tap water and once the tank is filled I add 10mL of TSS. Now, I know this is a stupid question... But I saw somewhere else...

    Help Hornwort.. What?!

    Alright guys.. LFS recommended hornwort as an "easy" plant to keep in my aquarium as well as a good way to help my guppy fry stay alive. So I got it. (Please note, I also purchased 2 types of anubias and a java fern - these plants, I had done lots of research with... Not so much hornwort)...

    Thanks for the advice! I didn't consider too little nitrates being an issue for the live plants. You just gave me an excuse add a few more little guys.

    Hello Everyone!

    Yes! they look so sad in those dopey little cups when I go into the pet stores..I want to take them all home with me! Who knows.. Maybe I'll do a full planted deal with my 10 gal after all and bring one of those beautiful babies home. :emoji_heart:

    Hello Everyone!

    Haha! No kidding! I still have my bowfront 10 gal tank. I keep telling myself I'm going to sell it or give it away.. .But it's hiding in my closet... Because I keep thinking about setting it up for a betta friend. Haha.

    Hello Everyone!

    A year after joining, I guess I'm finally introducing myself! My experience with aquariums is pretty much a little over a year. I recently transitioned to a 20 gal tank which is stocked with 5 zebra danio, 3 guppies, 1 nerite snail, and 1 super red bristlenose pleco! I don't have any live...

    Question Tips, Tricks And Advice For Transitioning Into A Planted Tank?

    So I'm considering transitioning from the fake silk/plastic plants to live plants in my aquarium. Currently, I have gravel substrate. Aside from the plastic plants I have a pretty large resin "piece of driftwood." I have an actual portion of an actual piece of driftwood on its way. Otherwise...

    Question Compatible Fish For A (possible) 20 Gal Tank?

    I'm sure there are tons of questions about this... So please forgive the repetition. Currently, I'm working with a 10 gal tank. I currently have 2 black mollies and 2 zebra danios. I know both require more friends. However, they have been doing just fine. I even added a bubbler to give my danios...

    Water Change Process Help!?

    For a 10 gal tank, it looks like the dose would just be 1mL... I would never have thought to add Prime first, then the tap water. I'll give that a try and see what happens. Should I unplug my filter while I'm doing the water change?

    Water Change Process Help!?

    For large water changes, I can leave my fish in the tank, correct? I panic a little at the thought because I worry there won't be enough water for them, but that does make sense. If I add water like I did last time, for a larger amount, will it harm my fish? (Tap water in the tank first, then...

    Water Change Process Help!?

    Okay, so I did a 40% water change last night... I have a 10 gal tank, although it was suggested that I mix the tap water with Prime in a bucket first, I ended up just adding the tap water for to the tank and dosed it with 1mL of Prime (I have no way to measure how much water is in the bucket...

    Glow Tetra Fish - Help!

    Ok that makes sense. Also.. Do you happen to know anything about appropriate lighting for the tank? I asked at the store and I got a bunch of different answers. Should the lights stay on all the time? Can I shut if off for a period? Which light is better for them - blue LED or white LED? I'll...

    Glow Tetra Fish - Help!

    No kidding! I have been in a full on panic since Sunday about caring for these fishies. The associate told me about the same thing - minimum of a 10 gal though she recommended 6 fish for it at the start and I went with 5. I'm ecstatic I found this forum, actually! I have spent the better part...

    Glow Tetra Fish - Help!

    Oh my goodness! Thank you so much! I just printed all of this out! Last question (maybe, I can't make promises, though)! Would you recommend getting more fish and/or replacing the ones that passed away this morning? I know you mentioned a 10 gal is too small. I do realize they're schooling fish...

    Glow Tetra Fish - Help!

    Real panic setting in here. I'm sorry I sound like a complete idiot. Water change? How much? And do I change the water first, then add prime? Or after?

    Glow Tetra Fish - Help!

    Yeah, I do have a filter for the tank - it's the one that came with the starter kit for it. What do I do with the fish (hoping they don't die on me!) if I follow your recommendation? Can I keep them in the water during all this or should they b removed in the meanwhile?

    Glow Tetra Fish - Help!

    Thanks! From what my mom said, it sounded like she just let them float, then dumped them in. I'm starting to realize the 10 gal tank is likely too small for the glow fish.

    Glow Tetra Fish - Help!

    I'm pretty sure this is a very common question here.. But I'm at my wits end.. And honestly, I know absolutely nothing about setting up an aquarium. So.... Can anyone explain to me step-by-step what I need to do to keep my tetra alive? I've gone to PetsMart several times to get help and...
