    Adding Ada Substrate To A Live Tank

    I am planning to add an ADA layer of substrate to my active tank, maybe in parts of two. Is it true that it would raise the ammonia levels?? As im doing it in parts, is it ok to add it while the fish is in tank? Please advise

    Question In Activated Carbon

    I have a 45gal heavily planted tank with a canister filter. I had to remove the activated carbon TWICE due to a fungal infection, which required medication. Currently the tank is running absolutely fine with no issues at all. Thinking of adding the activated carbon back...but not sure if it will...

Wouldn'tdn't have been possible without you guys selflessly helping out. I have subscribed to other platforms as well, but to be honest either...

    Why Is This Neon Rainbowfish Behaving Strange??

    Lol. Thanks a lot for your time on this . Something interesting happened over the night though...one of my biggest molly jumped out of the tank..not sure if he was bullied by the rainbows, as they are more in number. The rainbows look better today...but im monitoring closely

    Constant Occurance Of Fungal Infection. Please Help

    This is the third time I would be battling fungal infection in my fish, first it was neon tetras..then again neon tetras and now rainbow fish. My LPS guy suggested adding anti fungal drops then changing 30% water daily as a treatment...not sure if thats the right protocol. Some details: 45 gal...

    Why Is This Neon Rainbowfish Behaving Strange??

    So one of my neon rainbows is behaving wiered. He stays at this place almost all day long (see picture) and if anyone comes near that area..chases them away. Not sure if this is normal. Rest of the fish is just fine.

    How Much Percentage Water Change Allowed?

    You should!! I discovered them pretty late...they are one of the intelligent species...they can actually monitor whats going on outside the tank.

    How Much Percentage Water Change Allowed?

    So i keep hearing Rainbow fish loves a huge water change. Brings up two questions to my mind. #1 how big of a change is legit? #2 can we do a big water change if the tank is cycled? (Mine is cycled)

    Am I Underfeeding??

    They look fit. Rainbows look slim and thin..but stomach looks fine. Mollies arent fat either. They just crave a lot fr food. Should i try feeding twice for a change... alternate days maybe

    Am I Underfeeding??

    I have 39 rainbows, 26 mollies and few guppies in my tank. Unlike other countries we dont get these fish big in size comparatively, they are max 1-1.5 inches in size. I understand my tank might look like an LPS tank egarly waiting to sell fish..but somehow i have managed to keep the parameters...

    My Neon Rainbows Wont School Anymore :(

    I have 27 neon rainbows. Initially i added 19 and they did school a bit...after adding 8 more..they felt confident/brave and used to school from the left side of the tank to the right and vice versa. But since past Saturday, they just stopped doing that. They are active but wont school together...

    Molly Behaviour, Normal? Abnormal?

    Checked in the morning, nitrites 0, ammonia 0. One thing that I did today qas to feed them well...they aren't doing it yet..but usually this happens later in the day. I will take a video once i see that. Could it be possible that i am underfeeding them??

    Will Different Molly Types School Together?

    I learnt it the hard way. Plants take care of 70% of your problems..be it parameters..be it fish stress etc. I invested some 500bucks recently to get 100 stem plants. But its worth the money

    Molly Behaviour, Normal? Abnormal?

    So quite often my mollies go to the surface, float around like trying to eat food...though one by one..not all at once. Is this normal behaviour? My tank is heavily planted with constant water agitation..other fish seems fine too. Please advise
