    Gouramis In 20 Gal Community?

    I have a 20gal with 5 harlequin rasboras in, and will soon have 5 zebra danios as well. it’s sort of an “extras” tank so I could give companions to my remaining danios and rasbora without messing up my plans for other tanks. I’d like a pretty display fish in there as well though. Could I put...

    Uniseal Sizes?

    Hey everyone, I'm 90% of the way done with a diy inline heater rig, using pvc and hose barbs to create a housing for my heater that hooks directly into the tube for my canister filter. The last step is to order a uniseal that the heater fits snugly into, creating the necessary watertight seal...

    Question Corydoras Id: Longipinnis Or Paleatus?

    I got these corydoras at petco about two years ago, and wanted to get one or two more to fill out the shoal. I thought they were paleatus but I see some long dorsal fins and now I can’t be sure. Can anyone tell either way if these fellas are corydoras paleatus or corydoras longipinnis?

    5.5g Diy Rimless Planted Betta Tank

    I've been putting a bit more effort into this tank after a brief hiatus, and wanted to put it all in one place here. Though most of the updates are a little outdated, I'd enjoy input on any step in my process - this won't be the last time I set up a tank like this! So to start, in October 2018...

    Best Rimless 5-6gal On A Budget?

    I'm looking to upgrade my standard aqueon 5.5 gallon tank to a rimless in a similar size/dimensions. Clarity is pretty important to me, but looking to spend $50 or less.

    I recently upgraded my 20 gallon tall to a 30 gallon, and now that my hardscape is complete I'm looking to finish stocking the tank! I would like to add a pair of bolivian rams, one more cory, and at least four more ember tetras (but as many as I can). If the rams are a bad call for whatever...

    Cleaning Filter Media?

    My 20 gallon is suffering from some very dusty water. I had used flourite substrate, and the resulting clay dust seems like it's overwhelmed my filter. I don't want to replace the media, but it's been months and my filter keeps releasing dust into the water. Any thoughts on how to clean it...
