    Punkin's Tank

    Hi there! So far so good. Right now I am sticking with my current black neons. I have 6 of them and the 2 nerites. I've been kinda too lazy right now to set up a qt tank to add any new members! Hope you are having a great summer!

    Hi Lchi! I was thinking about this thread this morning and knew the wedding was coming soon, but I guess I missed it! Hope all went wonderfully and you have a great time.

    Game Of Thrones Season 8!

    Ah ok. I think that answers it. Dany wants to be Queen but people want Jon Snow right? And is Jaime against Cersei now?

    OK. So what is the big prize here? The point of the show? To be the ultimate ruler of Westeros?

    Suggestions For A Clean Up Crew For My 15 Gallon?

    What do you mean by clean up crew? I ask because nothing replaces cleaning it yourself. However, if you want a little help with some algae here and there, in my experience, I have 2 nerite snails in my 20 gallon and they keep it pretty spotless of algae. You will still have to do your weekly...

    20 Gallon Restock

    Bumping this for some more opinions. Hubby likes rams. Is a ram compatible for my tank? I am leaning towards just increasing the number of black neons eventually.

    Punkin's Tank

    HI fish friends! An update to the tank, I have rehomed my last albino cory to a trusted fellow fishlore member that lives in my area. I am very happy that she will be going to live in a school and in a 150 gallon tank! That leaves me with a school of 7 black neon tetras and 2 nerites. I may...

    Will My 20 Gallon Tank Be Overstocked?

    Not an expert on many of those species but I would not do the African dwarf frogs. Too much food competition.

    Question Nerite Snails Disappeared

    Check your filter, if you have an HOB. Whenever I can't find mine, that's usually where they are.

    20 Gallon Restock

    Hello all! Just trying to get some info for the future. As some may know, I have a 20 gallon high. I am going to rehome my albino Cory in the next week or two. That will leave me with 7 black neon tetras and 2 nerites. Should I add anything or leave well enough alone? I keep the tank...

    No. Just that one. The albino neon I lost looked and acted completely normal, as did the Cory. I’ve decided to rehome my last Cory. That will leave me with 7 black neons (6 regular and one albino) and 2 nerites. I’m going to create a thread for suggestions on whether I should add more black...

    Watering Plants With Waste Aquarium Water

    Yes, I water my outdoor plants with tank waste water when the weather gets warm enough in spring through fall. We planted a new redbud in the fall a few years ago. The following summer it did not look too good, so I started watering it with tank water. Looks great now. I do not water house...

    Nerite Snail Party?

    Wow nice tank, I have 2 nerites. One is always crawling on top of the other, to the point that Trouble sometimes twists and turns to try and get Spot off of him.

    Hi fish friends. I've not been as active on here as I used to, but still like to check in here and there to see how everyone is doing. We're hanging in there, but not so sure about the tank. In the last 7-8 weeks, I have been losing fish. 2 tetras (one expected, one not expected, and a cory...

    The chubby tetra made it thru the night. When I came home this afternoon from a little day trip with hubby (it’s my birthday) he was unfortunately stuck to the intake, I got him off and kept him netted towards the top, his gills were still moving. Just did the clove oil. Be happy in the big...

    Punkin's Tank

    I’ve been watching my chubby fish and unfortunately he is just getting worse. Was going to use the clove oil today but can’t catch him. In the midst of all this, I came home this afternoon and found one of my cories deceased. So not a real happy day.

    Diatoms On Plants

    Remind me.... are diatoms brown? If so, it's most likely harmless and up to you. I have some here and there that doesn't bother me. I have 2 nerites that eventually find them and clean them right up. As @CaptAnnDaniel said, it's personal preference.

    Potato Vs Pothos

    I had beautiful pothos in my tank when I had my adult cats in the past, they never touched anything. Unfortunately, I had to take it out when our last sweet angel cat passed away this summer and we got new kittens. I don't think a potato would harm a cat, I'd just be concerned about them...

    Zebra Nerite Eggs Out Of Control

    When I first got nerites, they laid a few eggs. But I’ve had them over a year and I don’t see any eggs anymore. I have 2 nerites. My tank is about 76 degrees.

    Punkin's Tank

    I've noticed one of my black neon tetras is super fat! I really don't think I've been overfeeding, as every other fish in the tank is slim. So thinking eggs or some sort of problem? I'll try to snag a picture and post.

    Aquaclear 50 Or 70?

    I think the 50 should be ok too. You can always put a pre filter sponge on the intake if you’re concerned about his size.

    Our neighbors pine blew down. Luckily in an open space in the yard so nothing was damaged. I made a simple veggie soup with lentils and barley and homemade macaroni and cheese.

    Help Looking To Upgrade My Filter

    I have mine with the extension on, but it can be removed. I'd measure for you, but am not at home right now, but I can later if you want. My tank is a 20 gallon high, and I prefer the intake to be closer to the bottom. I always turn off my filter/heater (it's on a shared power strip) when I...

    Over Run By Apple Snails

    It's possible they hitched a ride on another snail or fish, if you don't have live plants. Walmart may have also mis-marked them as mystery when they are indeed ramshorn. Years ago, I had a tank that also did not have live plants. But somehow I got snails! We think an egg hitched a ride on a...

    Funny Just For Fun- Do You...

    I have black neon tetras that tend to, what I call, "Galavant" across the front of the tank in the evenings. They seem to like when the flow of the HOB hits the front of the tank. So when I heard the jazz song, "Joyride" by Herb Wilbirn Jr. it seemed to be fitting to the fun they seemed to be...

    I have a 20 gallon tank with an Aquaclear 50 HOB on it and am very happy with it. I still have the original sponge for 2 years as well as about 5-6 pieces of extra floss plus the pumice stone looking media bag thingie (so technical, I know!). I rinse the filter media in old tank water every...
