Is it advisable to keep zebra loaches with Cory cats and plecos? Is there another loach that likes snails (to eat) that is better? I have been reading mixed reviews. Are zebras more friendly than yo-yo loaches? My LFS says yo-yos are fast and mean….thanks!
Just walked by my tank and my rummy nose tetras were all swarming below the “bachelor pad” (Lilly pad my male HG bubble nests over).
Sure enough Sundays must be for spawning for these two. Every Sunday they are at it.
She released eggs 4 different times that I saw. How many eggs can they hold...
I have a 30 gallon breeder (36" x 18" x 12") currently have:
-4 honey gourami
-10 rummy nose tetras
-7 panda cories
-1 very fat clown pleco
Tank is heavily planted. Can I add any other plecos in here?
I have a fluval flex cycled from my betta that died last week and I am trying to decide if I want to take it down and move the red cherry shrimp or get more fish. It’s planted very heavily. I realize this is a fish forum so I’m guessing there isn’t going to be anyone who is going to vote for...
I got a 30 gallon breeder (according to Google) used tank the other day. It came with fish in it already:
10 rummy nose tetras
3 panda cories
1 juli (planning to get a few more if he needs friends)
2 clown loaches (tying to rehome)
TON of neo shrimp.
They all seem very...
I got a 30 gallon tank off Craigslist yesterday and it came with the fish. I am keeping all of them with the exception of the clown loaches because I do not have a tank large enough for them to go into. The kid was shocked when I told him how big they can get. Anyway, they appear to be very...
I got a tank off Craigslist yesterday and there is a fish in it that I need help identifying……i dont know if it is relevant or not but there are rummy nose tetras that it seems to be semi schooling with, but it is larger.
I have some large 3 that I can see and a Lot of small ramshorn snails that I’d love to send someone’s way. I’ll pay shipping up to $5. Lower 48 only and must be 18 or have parental consent before you send me your address!
My honey gourami spawned the other day which I thought was so cool. Except, now my male is being a real “Richard” and has all of the other tank inhabitants hiding on one side of the tank at the bottom. (Still eating) The tank is very heavily planted and I’m upgrading my tank tomorrow to almost...
Can I keep clown loaches with albino cories or will they hurt my cories? I’m hoping to upgrade my 50 gallon tank to a 75 soon. I’m also getting a 29 to replace my 20, but it already has fish in it. It has two clown loaches which I know are too big for a 29 gallon so I was going to put them in...
I got 3 plecos 2 weeks ago. I ordered them online with plans to put them in my 50g tank after QT. The day I got them I found ich in my 50g, I’m heating that tank still haven’t seen any ich spots in over a week now. My question is how long can I keep the plecos in my 10g QT tank? I have a...
Hello fish friends. I bought some kenaplex today to treat my betta who I’m sure now has fin rot. The bottle says it is not safe for snails and shrimp. Which I have in the tank…….has anyone had any experience with this? Should I move the shrimp and snails? I have assassin snails in the tank...
Any ideas why my betta is acting so weird? Tank has been up since may but had him since March. He’s a male crow tail if that makes any difference. Roughly a week ago he ripped off two of his dorsal fins. I got him some shrimp and did the mirror thing maybe a minute a day and he stopped...
My 6ish month old crow tail has been nipping off his dorsal fins. I noticed one yesterday and one today. Any suggestions? He eats……plenty and a variety. I just got him red cherry shrimp yesterday and he pays them zero attention. He has had tank mates in the past I may get him some CPDs. I...
I have a 20g tall aquarium, heavy planting, lots of driftwood/tannins.
3 honey gourami
1 clown pleco
5 salt and pepper cories
3 assassin snails
Also considering adding some cherry shrimp.
My harlequins have been at this all day. The only thing I can think of is I have the tank temp increased to 86F (normal 78F) because I am treating the tank for ich. The intake sponge cover is fairly new too….sorry about all the photo-bombers :D
