    Why don't people just use Fluval Ammonia/Nitrite Remover over getting a Nitrogen Cycle Going?

    (Solved now, thanks anyways) Just discovered these products. Both these products seem to be very effective based on reviews (I haven't added them to my tank yet), and I'm curious why people don't just use these and then never have to deal with nitrates. Is it because they release small amounts...

    20 Gallon Tank Juvenile cichlid has ich, lethargic, eats normally,

    Juvenile cichlid is last fish with ich, lethargic but eats normally, and still has vibrant colors. I treated with ICH X for 5 days, and all the fish seem treated, however I was using water you purchase from a store, so it got very expensive, so I started using heat treatment to finish...

    Curious how long I could, I know these fish's lengths vary greatly, but what is your opinion for a standard sized one. I love these guys but have a smaller tank at the moment, curious if/how long I could house them. Most sources say 30 gal, my tank is 20ish, but has a footprint that's somewhat...

    Dumb Question About Cycling

    Apologies, this question is probably pretty stupid but I'm not sure of a solution. Anyways, I'm doing a fish in cycle. Yes, I know, it's bad, I wanted to do a fishless cycle, but one thing led to another, and I ended up with fish in uncycled tank. Don't worry, immediately dosed with prime, and...

    What's wrong with this diamond tetra?

    He swims at a normal pace, eats, schools, and such. I got him like this from the store. I outlined his backfin because I know its unusual. Do you think he suffers from severe fin nipping or fin rot, and do you think he is just little or has some other issues.? Also, his eye doesn't have the...

    Are the Following Water Parameters Good for Apistogramma Cacatuoides?

    I've done a ton of research, and these seem fine, but my fish anxiety is making me want to double check with y'all that these parameters are acceptable for an Apistogramma Cactuoides specifically, as I know Apistograma water parameters change depending on the type. 5dKH 10dGH pH somewhere from...

    Hi there! Recently I've been looking into cichlids for a 22 gallon long (36 by 12 by 12 inches), and have come up with a couple different cichlids that could work, and have been getting mixed answers if they would work. I'm curious what your opinions are on keeping 2 Keyholes in a 22 Gallon...

    20 Gallon Tank Could I Fit One Convict in a 22 Gallon Long Tank (Dimensions : 36"L, 12"H, 12"W)

    Hi there! I've been doing a ton of research on this matter, and many sources were saying a 20 gallon long possibly could work, others were saying minimum 30 gallons, but I'm assuming they meant with a tank with more standard dimensions, anyways, I was curious if my tank being rather long made...
