    Help I'm An Idiot - Salmon Oil In Tank

    So I'm an absolute idiot and instead of squirting fertilizer into my 55 gallon tank, I squirted my dog's salmon oil in there... Not sure at all how I didn't realize it was a different bottle. I'm hoping the ingredients won't hurt them. I'll post a picture of them. I have 6 new babies and I'm...

    65 Gallon Tank Another Stocking Question

    So I'm buying myself a Christmas present and finally getting a 65 that I've wanted forever. I know everyone asks stocking questions but I keep getting conflicting information on the fish I've chosen so I want to know what people's personal experience has been. I want an angelfish, but I'm not...

    Question Do I Need An Air Pump?

    Good evening everyone! So my air pump for my 20g bit the dust, and I've been reading conflicting information on whether one is even needed. I have an aquaclear 20g filter that makes a current itself, would that be okay by itself? I find that my air pump is more of a pain than a help most of the...

    Question What Is On My Shrimp?

    Hello! So today while searching to see if I have any new shrimp babies, I noticed something weird on one of my shrimp. It almost looks like a tiny black rock that is actually inside the top of the shrimp and slightly poking out. I can't find anything about it online, I just see posts that it's...

    Light For Beginner Plants

    I'm turning my 10 and 20 gallon tanks into planted tanks. I'm starting with easy plants, from what I've researched these are the ones I've decided on: java moss, moneywort, anubias, and java ferns. What type of lighting do I need? I read that low-light is fine, but I'm sure I have to switch to...

    Betta And Corys?

    I have a baby female (I think, not 100% sure yet!) betta in a 10g tank right now. She is too small to eat pellets and I'm really sick of cleaning up leftover food every day. I've always been afraid to put any type of fish with bettas, I've only stuck with snails. But I would love some corys in...

    Ammonia Burns

    I bought a baby betta less than a week ago, and she has ammonia burns. They were already there when I got her, but I feel like it got worse after I gave her melafix (I didn't realize it hurt bettas). Is there anything specific I need to do? Other than her looks, everything else is fine. She has...

    Petco Betta Baby Rant

    This isn't a question but just a rant about Petco. I've never been a huge fan of the chain itself, but the store in my town is as good as they get. Their fish are always healthy, reptiles are actually fed, etc. But then there are the bettas... My first betta Gatsby (RIP ) was from Petco and he...

    Filter In 10&20g Planted Tank?

    I recently decided to change my tanks over to planted tanks. I'm starting with my 10 and 20g first just to see how hard/expensive it is. I've found all the info I need, and even have the plants picked out, but I'm having trouble finding answers on my filters. The plants that I'm getting are...

    How Many Products Should I Add?

    For the 3 years that I've kept fish, the only product I've used is water conditioner, because I read that anything else is unnecessary, and most just mask a problem that you need to solve yourself in the tank. I recently talked to a friend who has kept fish for almost a decade, and he swears by...

    55g Stocking Question

    Yet another stocking question. I've had my 55 set up for close to a year now, and I thought it was fully stocked until I started regularly visiting this forum. The fish I have in my tank now: 1 dwarf gourami, 1 bn pleco, 1 pictus catfish, 2 hi-fin platys, 3 corys, 3 white skirt tetras, 3...

    Overstocking?

    I'm curious. I have 3 guppies, 3 x-ray tetras, 3 ghost shrimp, 2 snails, and 2 otos in a 20g. I have been told that is overcrowding my tank, even if you go by the 1 inch per gallon rule which I've been told is false. I feel like I see such contradicting advice on stocking tanks. What is your...

    Question Is My Nerite Snail Dying?

    I know questions like these are everywhere, but I haven't been able to find any answers for my situation. I got a nerite snail about four months ago. Other than his shell being chipped, he looked and acted healthy. He was very active and always grazing the glass for algae. But then a couple...

    What Snail Is This?

    I bought a snail at my LFS today, and they are usually really knowledgeable about their fish. Only one tank had snails and the three listed were: black mystery, ivory, and gold mystery snails. I personally saw no ivory or black mystery snails, just the gold and the ones that look like mine. I...

    Dumb Question

    So this is a dumb question but I just want to make sure everything is okay. In my 20g I have 3 x-ray tetras, 3 guppies, 2 otos, 3 ghost shrimp, and 1 nerite snail. Considering I have 6 algae eaters in my tank, you would think sinking wafers would be popular. If I put algae wafers in the tank the...

    Nerite Snail Escaped

    I thought I had my aquarium covered well enough, but nerite snails are the worst. Today when I was feeding my fish I noticed a trail in the dust on the outside of the glass on the other side of my aquarium (I know I need to clean), and my heart sank. The reason it's such a big deal is because...

    Bettas Fins Won't Heal

    I know there are a million betta threads already, but I've never found anything addressing my situation. I've had my betta for close to two years now. When I got him from petco he was the most active one there, and looked pretty good for being stuck in a tiny cup. Within a few days of being in...

    Recommended Gph?

    I'm setting up a 65 gallon tank, and from what I've read it's a way better option to get a powerhead instead of using an air pump to keep debris from settling and to provide extra oxygen. I've only had a 10 gallon and a 20 gallon before so it's never been an issue to just have an air pump to...
