    Starting a 10g tank

    Ok... I'm gonna be "that" guy.... I was like you and wanted to do a SW tank. Everyone said that small (nano) saltwater tanks would become a hassle and that it shouldn't be done. I didn't listen to anyone and went ahead with it. About 4 months later my SW tank was a mess. Strange substance...

    Is it possible to suffocate aquarium worms?

    That could actually be the problem. If you don't have food, they may be swimming about trying to find food. Fish will eat detrius worms too so most aquariums have many but they are never seen. as far as the planaria.. You could net them out and kill them or buy some shrimps for your tank and...

    wow! this is a betta's natural habitat.

    I believe that it is because rice paddies are in places that have wet and dry seasons. That is a normal or even wet season version. During the dry season it looks more like puddles. Not trying to say that bettas should live in puddles, but I believe that that is why/how that came about

    Is it possible to suffocate aquarium worms?

    Detritus worms swimming in a tank are signs of over feeding or too much poo and "dirty" water. I would just cut back on feeding or do a large water change. As far as it is for the planaria I wouldn't mess with the CO2

    10 inch Gar

    As stated above, the other fish may be hunted down by the gar. And as you don't want to keep the far but want to keep your other fish, I would give it back to the LFS or invest in a very large tank.

    Amazonian Marble Swamp Eel!!!!!

    Oh yeah! I know Texas was trying to help! I'm just saying that I will make nessicary arrangements when it gets too big. I didn't mean to sound mad or upset, I was just saying that I will make arrangements if it gets too big. I was just wondering about upping the size of the tetra school.

    Amazonian Marble Swamp Eel!!!!!

    Well I have a few options. One, is I can bring it back to the LFS when that happens. Two, my college may be able to provide a large tank for it.

    New Tank Stocking Questions

    Oh ok I got you! Yeah that was more of aesthetic thing I was thinking about! Yeah I would do like 3 male guppies. You don't want any females because they will have many babies and will overstock your tank. Plus males are usually "prettier" I said that you should do ten neons because a bigger...

    Amazonian Marble Swamp Eel!!!!!

    Update: All fish are doing good. The one with the bite is actually doing fine. It must have been mostly part of its fin that was nipped. Eel is doing good. Ctenopomas have lots of personality! They like Mysis Shrimp and Bloodworms, with the occasional ghost shrimp. My question, the tetras...

    250 gallon stocking

    I agree that clown loaches are awesome!! But that would mean no hoplos and I love hoplos hahaha!!! But, I wouldn't suggest bichirs because as they age they will eat the rainbows and the tetras. The ropefish would work though as their mouths stay small!! Great suggestion here!

    URGENT! Desperately need help w/ fishless cycling going on 11 weeks!

    That should work. Just put like two fish flakes in the tank so the bacteria have food. If the bacteria die than it was a waste to use start up. CORRECTION: If it was seven weeks ago, add some bacteria again with one flake and then the cycle should get going and hopefully it will balance before...

    Ahh yes my bad, I seem to be thinking of another "pest" snail then. I know that there is one species of snail that can reproduce with itself. And I don't mean asexually...

    Fish hasn't eaten in 20 days

    I have had very picky eater bettas before. Try buying Betta pellets. These are what I feed my bettas! If your Betta is picky like mine was, he may enjoy those pellets. Also keep in mind that bettas live in small rice pools in the wild. They have tolerance to go weeks without food. Not saying...
