    Question Do I Have Room For Another Small School?

    In my tanks I currently have 6 cherry barbs, 7 neon tetras, 6 peppered Corydoras (and a seventh in a breeder box), 3 guppies, a Bolivian ram and 2 mollies. Looking at my tank I’ve realized that most of my fish hang out near the bottom. I currently have a 36 gallon bow front with an aqua clear 55...

    Question Eggs On Glass

    Today I am cleaning my 36G bow front tank. While cleaning the tank I noticed some eggs on the side. In my tank I have cherry barbs, neon tetras, peppered Corydoras, and Nerite snails along with some live bearers. Attached is a picture of the eggs. Does anyone know what might have laid them? My...

    How Do I Working On Rebuilding Tank.

    I’ve got 2 black mollies, 3 guppies, 7 neon tetras, 6 cherry barbs and 4 peppered Corydoras in a 36G bowfront tank. I haven’t really experimented with anything except for API QuickStart when first starting the tank. I was just wondering what was the best for building the colonies the quickest.

    How Do I Working On Rebuilding Tank.

    So this week I had an outbreak of Columnaris in my aquarium. I’m running a full furan 2 treatment on the tank with the outbreak. It’s is my only tank at the time so I have no other established media and I’m assuming I shouldn’t use the cycled media that was already in the tank as it may be...

    Help One Fish Died From Velvet.

    So if it was white you would recommend treating for columnaris? I will look into dosing for it later on. I have a few snails in the tank as well, will this kill them off? I'm going to look at the LFS later on, but the stores by me besides that are petco and petsmart and they do not carry a wide...

    Help One Fish Died From Velvet.

    I've read that velvet produces a gold or rust colored film on the fish. The film that was on my fish at time of death was white. It also spread very quickly. I've provided tons of pictures to people and there were tons of different theories from Dwarf Gourami disease, to fungus and even...

    Help One Fish Died From Velvet.

    Last night I had euthanize one of my fish for what I have come to believe is velvet. As soon as symptoms occurred I moved the fish to a QT tank. It was in a community tank with a handful of other fish, but none of the other fish are exhibiting symptoms of velvet. The fish that died was quickly...

    Help Fish On The Way Out. Need Advice.

    I had another post on this earlier but I got no responses on my update. I woke up early this morning to see my dwarf gourami acting funny. It ended up having something growing on it and now that it’s almost dead and fully developed I was wondering if anyone could tell me what this is? I put the...

    How To Treat Dwarf Gourami Not Acting Normal

    Update: I just got back home and the fish really isn’t doing too well. I know that it’s probably a goner but it’s face has dried up and eyes looked clouded and it’s got a few lesions on its back. It also seems to be laying on the bottom and every now and again darts to the top to get some air...

    How To Treat Dwarf Gourami Not Acting Normal

    This morning I woke up to my dwarf gourami acting out of the ordinary. The fish looked as though it lost its appetite and seemed very lazy. Also, the fish will occasionally swim to the top and stick its mouth out of the water and then swim back to the bottom. Upon closer examination I realized...

    Liquid Fertilizers And Or Root Tabs?

    It’s is true that amazon swords do better with root tabs. However, your Anubias will do better with liquid fertilizers. This is because the swords are heavy root feeders and Anubias feeds from the water column. I would recommend getting more root tabs for your swords because once they grow large...

    Trying To Grow Some Healthy Plants With Ferts!!!!

    It should be a good jump off point. Just keep in mind that you may have some trouble with nitrates once the plant starts getting bigger though if you do not have any fish in the tank.

    Trying To Grow Some Healthy Plants With Ferts!!!!

    You could use the two of them together. However, flourish excel is more of a liquid carbon supplement. If you want to fertilize the water column with other things you may want to use flourish comprehensive.

    Petco Surprise - Huge Oscar!

    I was walking through Petco the other day because I do not have many other LFS. I was walking around looking at the fish and came across this guy. I wasn’t sure what thread to put this in but I thought I would share it. I thought it was against Petco’s policy to take in donation pets, especially...

    Trying To Grow Some Healthy Plants With Ferts!!!!

    So to answer your question I’m not completely sure how thick of a substrate you would want for the root structure as the swords roots can grow through a large portion of the tank not just straight down. However you do not need a fully cycled tank to start planting. That being said it should be...

    Trying To Grow Some Healthy Plants With Ferts!!!!

    Definetly use root tabs for an amazon sword as they a predominately roots feeders. Anubias on the other hand will feed from the water column. The swords will look nice however they might be a little big for a 10 gallon tank as they can get pretty tall. Also, you’re gonna need a decent layer of...

    Fish For New 40 Gallon

    I can’t speak from personal experience because I’ve never tried to use any of these product, but I know they make pH down to add to the water. Also, they make something called proper pH which I’m pretty sure is supposed to stabilize the pH at 7.0. You might want to take a look into those if...

    Ghost Shrimp Quarantine

    When it comes to ghost shrimp, a lot of stores sell them as feeders. This means that they are not taken the best care of. Also, these shrimp can be sensitive to new water parameters. I had bought ten ghost shrimp for a 36 gallon tank and 2 of them died in the first week. After about a month and...

    Help Is This Normal For A Amazon Sword

    Do you know what your nitrates are in the tank? Generally the leaves for plants will yellow because of a nitrogen deficiency. Also, the leaves look like they’re starting to yellow and die back. This could be because of a phosphate deficiency. The plant doesn’t have enough of one of these two...

    Question Woke Up With Cloudy Water

    Sorry if that was not clear. My tank finished cycling a while ago, it wasn't until after that point where the brown algae started growing. I have had the tank running for over two months now. Do you think it is possible that the cloudiness is just from the algae being kicked out of the sand?

    Question Woke Up With Cloudy Water

    Since cycling my tank I have never had an issue with cloudy water. Yesterday, I added four pepper cory to my 36G bow front tank. Waking up today I noticed that my water is really cloudy. I had a layer of brown algae in the sand, and I believe that the corys may have kicked it up into the water...

    40 G Breeder Help

    Yesterday I posted on here discussing creating a 40 breeder tank centered around Angelfish. After deciding the tank is too short to accommodate an angelfish I’m back to the drawing board. I want to create a moderately-heavy planted tank. I want to have 2-3 decent sized schools and maybe a pair...

    40 Gallon Tank Angel Fish 40g Breeder

    Thank you so much for the information. I really appreciate it. If is going to be a little small for them then I’ll probably defer to building a tank around Pearl Gouramis. I’ll just wait until I can get a taller tank before I try and tackle angelfish.

    40 Gallon Tank Angel Fish 40g Breeder

    Do you think that the angelfish will do alright with the neon tetras once they’re fully grown? I feel like they’re small enough to turn into food after the angels grow.

    40 Gallon Tank Angel Fish 40g Breeder

    In the near future I’m looking to create a community tank. I want to have two angel fish in the tank. I was wondering, is a 40G breeder too short for a fully grown angelfish? Also, what schooling fish would do well in a community tank with angelfish? I was thinking about doing some type of...
