I have a fully cycled 10g with 5 panda cories. I was thinking about adding a single fish as a centerpiece/pop of color. No bettas because the temp is too cool for them, but maybe a dwarf gourami? Could I keep just one, or is it recommended they stay in pairs or more? I’m just looking for a...

When I got Pepsi, he wasn’t labeled. He’s not a veil tail because my other betta is and there’s a dramatic difference in their tails. His tail is full even when not flared out. What tail type?? Rosetail??
You know when you’re trying to be extra careful and your arm just jerks wildly and disaster ensues?
Yeah. Lol. My thumb jerked down on the syringe, frozen brine shrimp everywhere. First reaction is to jerk my arm back, knocking the tank divider askew. Hence the bald spot of tank bottom near my...
Can a mod change the title to “feeling like I’m being watched” ? My phone glitched out and posted before I finished the post. Lol
I look up from doing homework to see two little fiends staring me down!
I’ve been so busy I haven’t even had time to process this properly. But my beautiful little mystery snail Olive died a week ago. I hope she’s somewhere eating all the cucumber her little snail heart desires. Scooch in peace my little snail superstar.
My betta, Oil has been unusually lethargic. Necessary info:
After moving an hour away from home, I decided to upgrade my 5.5 gallon to 10 gallons. My tank (5.5) was cycled, and when transferring to the 10, I used the gravel, half the water and the...

Let me draw your fish - but poorly. A humorous act of kindness to give you a laugh! Send in your most beautiful or your derpiest pictures for a poor yet funny rendition. :) just looking to spread some laughs!
My mystery snail is floating constantly, when she’s not stuck to the glass or on some decor. Currently she’s eating, but just floating while she does. She still is active during normal times.
From what I researched, snails usually float if the water conditions are poor or if they have an air...
I've been thinking about my options for tanks and fish and I think I want to stay in the betta area of the hobby. That being said, I've been bouncing back and forth with the idea of upgrading my tank, or getting a completely separate tank for a new betta. My new idea is a divided 10g as...
I was just poking around looking for an aquarium society or something in my area. There isn’t one, but there IS one where I’m moving to in a week! Then, something caught my eye.
God, I love conventions. I’m a huge nerd, so I’ve been to several conventions multiple times for nearly a...
So, in a little under two weeks I’m moving about an hour away for college and bringing my 5.5 gal tank with my betta and mystery snail. I just wanted to run my plan by here and see if this is a good idea + any tips.
Since I’ll be driving my own car with my stuff in it, I was going to have...
Today, I stopped by my LFS after work just to "look around" (code word for "I'm not leaving this place empty handed) and remembered brine shrimp are $1 for a portion!
I've never done live food before, but after the experience, I think I'm going to start incorporating live feeding in more often...
Hi! Here's the necessary information:
5 gallon tank with betta and mystery snail. About a month ago, my betta had a mild case of fin rot. With a few daily salt baths, it went away. It's back now, and it's worse. I'm thinking that the stress of the fish-in cycle...
Here is the necessary information -
I think my betta has ich. He has two salt grain like white spots on the left side of his body. He had a couple the other day, but they were fuzzy and not salt grain like. After turning the water temp up, the fuzzies fell off and I changed the water. Now, he...
I picked up a ghost shrimp on a whim for my tank. When I got home, I acclimated, drained the old water into a bucket and let my shrimp who I named Maurice into my tank.
Well, I think Maurice is a lady shrimp. Because as I was going to rinse out my bucket, I noticed some movement in there. Upon...
