    5 Gallon Tank As stocked as Possible

    Maybe my wording was wrong. To clarify, I certainly do not want to overstock a tank. What I am looking for is stuff like the information on the microrasbora family: fish/ fish combinations I would not think of that would be well suited to a small tank. All I could think of was a betta, and I am...

    Fire Belly Newts Tank

    I may be confused, but are the fish in the tank with the newts? These newts, as mentioned, are poisonous. This poison is secreted directly off of their 'skin' and therefore, should not be kept in tanks with fish because it mixes into the water. Also, they shed their skin, which pollutes the...

    I'm sorry to hear that. I would definitely recommend frequent water changes. Pristine water will help the fish to heal up on its own.

    Question What should I do with my spare tanks

    Give them to me. LOL Just kidding. Hm... I would say if you want to do a salt nano, use one of the 10g instead of the 6.6g. Then maybe some shellies or pure strain endlers in the other 10? Or I always like neon species tanks.

    100g Progress

    Though I think the main difference is, while both induce parental instincts, the small active fish are more likely to get away from actual harm than slower moving angelfish.

    10 Gallon Tank New pot!

    Looks nice! Just be careful with the whole in the bottom. A lot of fish like to squeeze into places they won't fit into and get torn up fins.

    Haha I had half of my 55g drain out onto my floor one time while I wasn't home. The cat pulled the tube off my air pump for my bubbler and the water slowly drained out of it during the day. Except it was an upstairs tank, and the water dripped through my floor into the downstairs. Then through...

    Help My creme sickle molly is swimming funny!!!

    Welcome to Fishlore!! Firstly, you need to find out the exact numbers from the test. Most of the time fish stores say everything is 'perfect' when really it isn't. Also, mollies should really be in a 30g or bigger.

    55 Gallon Tank Stocking

    I'm thinking of aquascaping to create very clear and seperated territories for the apistos and gudgeons. If it were to become a problem, I would rehome one or the other.
