    Question Tank Mates For Rcs In A 10 Gallon ?

    Second CPD. They'll pick off some of the babies, but are too small to eat the adults. And they are beautiful fish.

    Is This Too Much Filtration?

    I'll chime in here too. You can never filter too much water. The only concern is the flow. As long as your fish aren't getting blown around by the current, more filtration can only be good. It might not be needed, but it can't hurt anything.

    If you follow this advice their population should dwindle to a more manageable number.

    Who Should Be In My Display Tank?

    Both tanks are 30 gallon plus. (A 29 and a 37) 2 fancies in one, and a small guppy colony in the other. They're each housed adequately, and will be in either tank.

    Who Should Be In My Display Tank?

    I have 2 tanks that are nearly identical. One house's a guppy colony, the other houses a pair of fancy goldies. One is in the living room where I spend most of my hours (when I'm not at work), the other is in the bedroom where I pretty much just sleep, and only really interact with the tank for...

    I’ve Got To Kill Some Baby Snails :(

    What ystrout said. They will die out as the food supply goes away. Massive population explosions happen at first, but the numbers will die back as they work through the available food. If they don't die back then there's usually a problem in the tank allowing them to overpopulate, such as...

    I’ve Got To Kill Some Baby Snails :(

    Don't do it! Give the population a month to balance out! Snails aren't bad and people are too quick to panic. If you want me to elaborate on the benefits of snails let me know. At this point, I feel I need to prepare a copy/paste response to these threads. I spend most of my time on fishlore...

    Important Mother & Family Poisoned By Palytoxin Coral Defense

    I've been told about it, and I still have zoas in my reef. While I admit I was very nervous at first, you just need to be smart about it. If you read that article, she was scrubbing the coral off something under hot water. The steam will get the toxin into the air so you're breathing it in...

    Help Snail Infestation

    Just saying, I've had them in my tanks since the beginning. In my mature display tank I can currently count 5 that I'm able to see out in the open. You'll have an initial explosion, the first couple snails will have the food all to themselves and they'll eat and lay eggs all over the place...

    Clownfish Occasionally Sits Still On Rock

    Mine do something similar. Someone explained to me that it's behavior common only in captive bred clowns. Apparently sleeping room is at a premium in breeder tanks, and each fish kinda learns "it's spot" and keeps the spot even once the crowding is gone. Not sure how much truth there is to it...

    Help Snail Infestation

    bladder snails stay small. The biggest one I've ever seen was like the size of a pencil eraser. And if you aren't overfeeding, the babies will die out from lack of food and only a small few will make it to adulthood. No real guide or rules that i know of. It will vary by tank. Just watch your...

    Hey there! Fishlore's resident snail advocate here! Let me take this thread in a whole different direction and suggest you stop trying to get rid of them.

    Mystery Snail Miracle Baby

    Congrats then! Yea those clutch sizes can be overwhelming. In that case I'd say your wild type is likely the other parent. It's a very dominant gene. Despite what some say, in my experience you can usually tell the adult color from the moment they hatch. So it will likely grow to be another...

    Mystery Snail Miracle Baby

    Are you certain it's mystery snail? Even as fresh hatchlings there's no mistaking them. They look like tiny clones of the adults. Might be a bladder snail if it's got a different shape at all. Have you added plants or anything recently? I only ask because like you said, it is indeed impossible...

    1st Timer! Buying Plants Friday!! Do I Need Co2?

    Snails aren't a bad thing in my opinion. The much maligned bladder snail is a welcome part of the ecosystem in my tanks. Don't overfeed and their population won't get out of control.

    Attempting The Impossible! 1.6 Gallon "limited Resource" Fowlr

    I've never kept frogspawn but they do look cool. My duncan and mushrooms have been through much the same, but I'm still using the crappy nicrew led lol. I'm a freshwater guy, but my mushrooms, duncan, and acans have all done well tolerating my noobness. My nano is quite ghetto.

    Attempting The Impossible! 1.6 Gallon "limited Resource" Fowlr

    They can also lay dud clutches like chickens. They're probably not fertile and won't hatch most likely.

    Fish Id Help??

    Comets will eventually need a large tank it's true. But I agree that it's better off with you for now than dead. But I think you might have trouble trading it to a pet store. They go for like 35 cents in bulk. I'd look for either someone with a pond or a big tank.

    Question Are Aiptasia Anemones Dangerous?

    Tweezer them off and put some reef epoxy over the spot they were in. You want to cover anywhere the foot was touching so it doesn't grow back from the tiny pieces leftover.

    Question Are Aiptasia Anemones Dangerous?

    They aren't harmful to humans. You can be allergic to them though. If you're allergic to bees be extra careful. But they spread fast and will aggressively sting corals they get near. If you want coral, get them out.
