    20 Gallon Tank Stocking 20 Gallon Tall Ideas

    I like the idea of adding a Bolivian ram, however I hear that they need to be in pairs to maintain their colors?

    Noob, Need Ideas

    Normally, you could do that. But when you add a betta, things start to change. Betta's can be tricky in that they can either get bullied to death, or they bully their tankmates to death. A single platy can get up to 2 inches, which is about the same size of a betta. By adding more, you're only...

    Noob, Need Ideas

    Personally, I think you should reconsider the platy. Platies do best in groups. A better option, would be to add some neon tetras instead. Colorful but small, they can easily out-swim any betta.

    20 Gallon Tank Stocking 20 Gallon Tall Ideas

    Starting my 20 gallon tall. I have not added any fish as of now, since I am in the midst of cycling. I do have some plants, and I do plan on adding more. Want some stocking ideas, however I'll be honest, I'm not a fan of the more common platies, mollies, and guppies. Seeking something a little...

    Help Adding Soil To Substrate

    I've decided to not add the soil. Apparently the brand I have (Miracle Gro), seems to actually be packed with fertilizers. I think I'll just play it safe and go with root tabs, lol.

    Help Adding Soil To Substrate

    Yeah, I guess I forgot to mention. I don't plan on adding the soil as the main substrate. The "main" substrate that I've picked out is Flourite. The idea was to set about an inch or maybe less of the soil beneath that.

    Help Adding Soil To Substrate

    I will be filling in my new 20 gallon tall tank, however I am concerned about adding potting soil. Since I plan on adding live plants, I have read that one of the best options is to add potting soil below the aquarium substrate. Problem is the last time I tried that with my 40 gallon (few...

    Stocking a 40 gallon breeder

    Currently, 4 danios, 1 firemouth, 1 convict. I still doubt the convict will survive though.

    I also introduced some MTS into the tank, will they get eaten by the cichlids?

    Stocking a 40 gallon breeder

    Forgot to mention, he's been gasping a lot. I don't think there's anything wrong with the water quality either. The firemouth is completely fine. I already changed the water two days ago, yesterday, and two times today.

    Stocking a 40 gallon breeder

    Reading up on yellow acaras, I think it would be a little risky. There have been cases of yellow acaras growing up to 10 inches.

    Stocking a 40 gallon breeder

    If the convict survives that is. Lol. As soon as the convict got home, he's been acting pretty strange. He moves around to a corner and sits on the gravel for a while until he decides to change spots again. No aggression in the convict so far.

    The firemouth is a lot bigger than the convict though. I'll wait and see how it turns out.

    Stocking a 40 gallon breeder

    Well I went to the stores around town. I couldn't find any bolivian rams, rainbow cichlids, or any saijica. What I did find were some yellow acaras, and some types of severums. I ended up falling in love with a firemouth and convict that I got. They're both juveniles, but the firemouth looks...

    Stocking a 40 gallon breeder

    Ah, thank you for the info The annoying thing about I where I live currently live, is that the good and exotic looking fish aren't very common. I plan to look around in petstores today and see what they have.

    About the rams, aren't they a little too sensitive about water and ph levels? I've heard a lot of negative things about rams. Rainbow cichlids I'm not very fond of, I haven't seen any around where I live. Anything else besides a rainbow?

    Stocking a 40 gallon breeder

    Looking it up online, I've seen quite few people who have put those two together without any problems. I think it'll be fine. If I do get angels how much should I get? And are there any other fish that I can put in?

    Stocking a 40 gallon breeder

    I have a fairly new 40 gallon breeder that's already been cycled and etc. So far it has 4 giant danios (Getting more soon), an anubias, and an amazon sword. I'd like to stock up the tank with some fish and plants too. So far I'm kind of interested in angel fish, but I'd like see what you guys...
