    10g stocking

    Ok. I'm gonna switch out the gravel for some Eco-Complete and I got some driftwood and dwarf baby tears. Gonna probably go with 1 male betta and 1 snail then. Which one is best? I don't want it to breed or anything

    10g stocking

    Ok. I think I'm gonna go with 1 male Betta. Is there anything else that I can add like snails? Or do they tend to be messy?

    10g stocking

    What are some stocking option for a 10g aquarium? It is heated, planted, and has a pretty good filter on it. I was thinking maybe 2 female betta, or 2 honey gourami. I love honey gourami. Is a school possible in a 10g or would it have too high of a bioload/not enough space?

    Upgrading My Betta's Tank

    I don't really like the look of floating plants. And I don't want them to cover up too much light

    Upgrading My Betta's Tank

    Just set it up. It's a 10 gallon. Gonna buy some front carpeting plants in a few days to fill in the front. Anyone have a suggestion that I should be able to find locally at a Petco or PetSmart? Betta is in a temporary tank until the new one is cycled.

    Pretty Heated Classroom Argument

    Gorillas can climb though. Also they can pick things up like rocks and sticks. Also gorillas may not even fight, since they arent really predators. They just kind of intimidate others into not fighting.

    Water Changes

    Would assume white because most people would refer to algae as green water.

    Water Changes

    You cut buy them online or at LFS. You need a sponge filter (~$5-$10) and a air pump (~$20)

    Ready For Stock!

    No, 1 centerpiece, a school of tetra, and some corys would work. Might have to stick to 6 in a school so that it isnt too overstocked

    Ready For Stock!

    If you wand a Dwarf Gourami then you're going to have to do something about the temp. DG need 77-81°F. Either give up the gourami, or get a heater.

    Rimmed Vs. Rimless Tanks

    Agree. The rims are also to allow for hoods and tops. But they wont allow you to attach a different kind of light most of the time.

    Dwarf Puffer Tankmates In 10 Gallon

    So what? People give advice on fish they dont have all the time. Agree on everything except the teeth filing. I have seen some people say that they do need teeth filling, and some say their teeth dont grow. Idk, but snails are a good portion of their diet anyway. Pest snails are the best...

    Brown Algae/bacterial Bloom?

    Cut down the light time to 6-7 hours. Stop replacing the filter media, just rinse it out. Replacing it is destroying the cycle.

    10 Gallon Tank 10 Gallon Fish Tank With Neon Tetras

    Taking out the decor would be pretty bad for the cycle, but there is still bacteria in the filter. If you do, then you are gonna have to wait for the bacteria to build up again.

    Painting The Back Of Aquarium?

    What Is This?

    Most you can do is keep the water perfect and just make sure everything is perfect. Dont go too overboard on the meds, could stress the fish out more.

    Painting The Back Of Aquarium?

    But make sure you pick a flat black. Dont make the mistake of using a glossy paint

    What Is This?

    Not only that but there is Ascites as well. Pineconeing around belly area. By unrelated do you mean related by blood or just another case? Did you get them from the same place? If you did then it is probably the one they were bred from.

    What Is This?

    Have you put him in QT? If you dont have one then just go to the store and get the most cheap 1 gallon kit you can find. That will help if it is contagious. Under the very unlikely chance that it is cancer, I would worry about the baby mollies.

    What Is This?

    After researching for a few minutes it is possible that it is cancer. If so, it is most likely too late. Most of them are genetic as well, they dont show up until later in life. Tumors And Cancers in Fish

    Painting The Back Of Aquarium?

    Depending on the size of the tank you can do many things. Since mine is so small I use construction paper. I have seen people use white backgrounds and that can look nice too. If it is really big then I would get a black poster board and tape it to the back. If you want to paint it you can. The...

    I run the lights from 8 am to 7pm. I use these root tabs. This happened before. It forms a thick carpet over anything in the tank. It killed some of my old plants and is looking to do the same here. My ludwigia is already losing leaves

    How To Get Rid Of This Algae

    So I absolutely hate the look of algae. This stuff started growing about 2 weeks ago. How would I get rid if this stuff? It seems to be spreading and I want to solve it before it covers the whole gravel layer.
