    Has Anyone Ever...silver Tip With Ember Tetras

    Has anyone here ever put silver tip tetras with ember tetras? My silvers have been really good so far, they play rough with eachother but seem to leave my corys, and now my dwarf gourami alone. But both those fish are either similar in size or bigger. I want to get some more color in my tank...

    Apartment And Fish Tank

    Not sure about the apartment part, but as for the moving, if you can get one of those betta cups, or have one still, thats what I moved with, all the way across the country, about a 3 day trip. Kept the betta in a cooler that was padded so there wouldn't be any chance of tipping ove, and changed...

    Keeping Betta With Neon Tetras

    Is there a question here? If you are thinking about trying it, it does depend a lot on the individual betta. I actually just added black neon tetras to my bettas tank last night. He followed them around like a puppy an when he got a little too forward they darted away. I got 12 to start, and...

    Question What Light Do You Recommend For A Low Tech Aquarium?

    Hmm, honestly you are probably better off getting a hanging light, and then just finding the right bulb to put in it. The lights I mentioned are made to light up the whole tank, not like a spot light. Never really looked into it too much myself, but if you do a search you should be able to find...

    Question What Light Do You Recommend For A Low Tech Aquarium?

    Are you looking for something cheap? I have two different ones that seem to do well with my low light plants. A Nicrew one, and an Aquaneat one, both available on amazon. The Aquaneat is cheaper, but brighter in general. I haven't had it as long, so not sure how it will be for algae, but as long...

    40g Breeder Community Tank Ideas?!

    There are so many, many options. I recently started stocking the same size tank, and it can be overwhelming. Best thing you can do to help yourself and people here narrow it down is find one fish you absolutely want to include, single fish or school of them, whatever the case may be, and plan...

    I do like the black neon tetras, I had been looking at them while considering different options. Might look into glowlights, not sure I paid much attention to them before.

    Re-portioning Frozen Fish Food?

    Mine are gum drop shape which are very difficult to hold onto, I honestly would see myself grating my own fingers before they stayed where I wanted, lol. The fish love it, but its a bit of a pain. I did end up buying the little cube tray, and re-portioned it in there and it works really well...

    Re-portioning Frozen Fish Food?

    Hmmm, I don't know. But since its only thawed for maybe 5-10 minutes before it goes back in the freezer I'm gonna hope its ok, lol.

    20 Gallon Tank Possible Tank Mates For Betta In This Set Up

    Lol, wasn't sure if the guppies would be more tempting even for a more laid back betta, lol. Not that I even really want guppies...but still, always good to know.

    20 Gallon Tank Possible Tank Mates For Betta In This Set Up

    LOL! I guess I'm a bit paranoid, I don't want to buy a bunch of fish only to have them live a year at most cause the water shortened their lifespan or something. Also, I feel like I read somewhere that bettas might mistake a guppy for another betta and attack them...not sure if that has any truth?

    20 Gallon Tank Possible Tank Mates For Betta In This Set Up

    I like the chilli rasboras, but as I understand it they prefer very soft water, which mine is not. Certainly most things can adapt, but I don't want to take them too far out of their comfort level, lol.

    Would corys be ok on the river stone? Half or so, maybe a bit more, will be sand, but don't want there to be any issues.

    20 Gallon Tank Possible Tank Mates For Betta In This Set Up

    Hey everyone. So I couldn't resist getting a 20 gallon long at the recent Petco dollar per gallon sale. I've been wanting to upgrade my current 5 gallon betta tank, and I figured I'd just go for what I've been wanting. My intention is to set it up with sand on one side leading into river...

    "eco-friendly" Filter Media?

    Can you make your own sponge filter maybe, with natural sponge as you said? Or maybe one exists somewhere... Having lots of plants can give you a lot of natural filtration, I think there are some people who manage to have tanks with only plants as their filtration.

    Question Emerald Cory’s Fighting?

    I can't say for sure, as I only just got some myself, but as I understand it they are supposed to be kept in groups of 6. Possibly for aggression reasons? I just put 6 in my 40 gallon and they are def. very energetic! Keeping up with my Silvertip Tetras no problem, lol.
