    Honey Gourami Tank Behavior

    I love my honey's. They are fairly shy but they have gotten more comfortable. If my other fish start darting around they will hide behind plants until the commotion stops

    Absolutely Stumped.

    Well my theory went out the door other than maybe something with the recent move. Was there any temp swings? I know I'm pulling at strings

    How Accurate Is Aqua Advisor?

    Ty for the info. The only juveniles are the 4 plattys. I'd like to rehome those baby factory machines they are. Lol. My cories are albino/bronze. I really dont want a canister just my preference. I do weekly wc at about 40% or so. The biggest bio load imo are the plattys. Stinking poop...

    Setting Up Community Tank...

    Ok. I can only answer a few of the questions. Yes the heater is safe completely submerged. Depending on what kind of filter u use I would suggest using a airstone. I'm definitely no expert on compatibility with fish but I thought I heard angels can be aggressive. Hope this little bit helps. Lol

    Best Hob Filters In Your Opinion?

    I really like what I hear about fluval but they are very expensive. The sun sun I've heard a ton of complaints from. I agree I'm torn. For whatever reason I know I don't want a canister filter. I've always liked HOB

    Best Hob Filters In Your Opinion?

    So I have 2 penquin 200 bio wheels. I'm about done with them. The stupid wheels are constantly not spinning. I've cleaned and scrubbed calcium build up hoping that would help. Nope. So frustrating.

    Help Me Please

    I know around 6 your beneficial bacteria will die. I find it hard to believe that your tap is that low. When u get your test kit that's the first thing I would test is the tap water ph

    Ah! I Made A Mistake

    I'm no expert but I would think to raise the temp slowly. Maybe in 2-3 degree increments. Shut it off for a bit and repeat? Best of luck

    Aww they look great. I forgot I do give the fish blood worms once a week but the catfish dont seems super enthused about them. Honestly none of the fish are crazy about blood worms which i find odd but.....

    Hmm. Not sure lfs says green. I've had them together for awhile and they all get along great so I don't see any issues. I do like the rasboras cause I'm looking for a top dwelling fish but my water is fairly hard and I read they like a softer water
