    Lighting For 60 Gallon

    Hello everyone. I currently have a 60 gallon (l:48" w:13" h:24") low tech tank with a 36" T5HO light fixture that was given to me. I have been using it for my valls, java fern and anubias. I know I need more light and was looking at getting this light fixture: My question is with my t5HO and...

    Have Ich And About To Go On Vacation

    Hello, as always timings couldn't be better. My cardinal tetras have ich and I'm leaving for vacation in 10 days for a week. As I only noticed this last night I'm going to try to find ich meds without metheylene blue or malachite green because I don't want to stain my tank. I may be doing it the...

    Enough Light For 60 Gallon

    Hello, I wasn't given a glo light that's too short for the width of the tank but I'm not sure that matters. My tank width is 48 inches and the light is 36. It came with a new t5 bulb 18,000 k. Do you think that's enough light for medium light plants? I feel like it's not bright enough.

    Omg, ok I'm having a serious algae problem. My betta tank has a hair algae problem and now my shrimp tank is developing black beard algae. It's not a lot but I still don't want it to spread. I'm not dosing fertilizers. There was only root tabs placed a month ago and I have no co2 injection. I've...

    Green hair algae problem

    I need help as I made a few changes to my tank and can't pinpoint what may have cause the growing GHA problem in my betta tank. I started a shrimp tank and removed all the shrimps and put them in their own tank. In my 10 gallon betta tank I put higher lighting (13 watt bulb) as I put more...

    Fin rot

    Looks like my betta has some fin rot. Weird because my water parameters are 0 nitrites and ammonia and 5ppm nitrates. Is api triple sulfa safe to use with plants? I have a store near my house that sells it. I can get Melafix but it's much farther away and I'd rather avoid the trip if I can...

    Is this anubias?

    Got this in the discount section. It looks like a mutated anubias lol. The roots are coming out from the top of the stem too.

    Cfl bulbs

    Will any compact fluorescent bulb grow plants or do I specifically need ones for aquariums? Most hardware store don't post what colour wave lengths they emit so I don't know if I should buy it. Right now I'm using coral life and zoomed but both are so expensive.

    Red cherries twitching

    Got new shrimps yesterday and they've been twitching and one has already died. They fall in their backs and twitch in their sides. I checked water and there was no spikes. Weird thing is my ghosts and amano's are perfectly fine. It's just my cherries that are acting strange. Thoughts?

    Tank stuck

    So I tried to move my tank I just set up a day ago forward a slight bit, but found it stuck to my dresser. I slowly wedged it free and I think the silicon on one side opened up and it started a slow leak. I've patched it up and now my tank is stuck again to the dresser. Has anyone else has...

    Amano shrimp found outside tank

    So I was doing a water change and it seems I didn't inspect my driftwood hard enough and didn't realize a shrimp on it. My question is how long can they stay out of water? It was about 15-20 minutes it was out of water and when I got it in the tank it was swimming around frantically. I'm a...

    Nerite snail on side

    I bought a nerite today and when I put it in my tank it moved around a bit and then stopped. I assumed it was just getting used to the new tank and then 3 hours later I saw it on its side. Does that mean it's dead?

    Breeding ghost shrimp

    Has anyone had luck with this? I was thinking of buying a small betta tank with a cheap filter to remove the female in there when she is ready to give birth. Would this work? And does anyone recommend liquid foods for the fry?

    Water change and house plants

    So I've been using my aquarium water as a fertilizer for my house plants but I wanted to ask if anyone used their aquarium water all year round? I'm asking because technically you're not suppose to fertiliZe plants during the winter months. So during winter months do you stop?
