    33 Gallon Tiger Barb Aquarium

    Hi! I have a 33 gallon that I have been considering turning into a tank for tiger barbs after seeing the gold or albino version in person. I’ve never kept tiger barbs because I’ve been a betta and Gourami guy my whole fish keeping experience and know they’d have never worked together. I am...

    Hornwort and Hydrogen Peroxide

    One of my tanks had a Cyano breakout so I decided to do a hydrogen peroxide cleaning, which I have done in the past. I take the fish out, douse the tank and then do a 100% water change. I slowly put the fish back in. All was well. I had some hornwort that I also treated with some red root...

    What's wrong with this tetra?

    So I have this Candy Cane tetra that looks really weird... He's skinny and looking boxy. I've had him for 2+ years and this started to happen a few months ago. He's eating and acting normal despite the appearance. He's in a tank with some other Candy Cane tetras and some Congo tetra. I noticed a...

    40 Breeder Lake Tanganyika

    I *think* I want to convert my 40 gallon betta sorority to a Lake Tang cichlid tank. Let’s be honest, a betta sorority can be fun at times, but then boring at other times. Plus I stocked the dither fish as Celebes Rainbowfish, which are not doing well at all, and Congo Tetra. So I kind of am...

    Sand Loach Species

    Recently I purchased 3 sand loaches. I got them from the same LFS, but one of them looks totally different from the other two. I can’t for the life of me figure out what species of loach they are. I believe the one in the first photo is Nemacheilus masyae , but unsure about the second one...

    Best shelving unit

    Hey guys, what’s the best shelving unit for fish tanks? I need a 36 inch shelf and I got the Edsel shelving unit, but it’s too flimsy and I’m afraid it will fall over. Does anyone have any other suggestions on heavy duty shelving units? I just need to put a 10 and 6 gallon on one shelf and the...

    Remove scratch from glass

    So I’m a tot cults and tripped when I was taking my glass top off my brand new 40 gallon breeder and crashed into the tank, resulting in a gash in the glass! It’s an eyesore. What can I do to fix this, if anything? I know I can rotate the tank, but I don’t want to do that because I really love...

    Does this DIY stand look safe??

    So I needed more room for some tanks. I made a quick stand out of cinder blocks. But I'm.. um... unsure, if it looks safe, or if it's just a total disaster waiting to happen? I kind of did it post 2nd dose COVID vaccine, so I don't think my brain was all there lol. Please ignore the mess in my...

    Aquaclear media question

    I got a Fluval Aquaclear 50, and it has filter floss. I have never gotten an AC with filter floss before, leading me to believe it may have been opened before. Has anyone's AC 50 come full of filter floss before??

    40 Breeder Set Up Planning

    My birthday is coming up in 11 days and I was thinking of getting myself a 40 Breeder. What I want to do its fill the back half with an aquarium dirt, probably Fluval Stratum, as it is what I can find locally and I already have a few unopened bags. I want to plant the back with basically just...

    Probably an odd question...

    So I got a new Tetra Whisper 60 air pump today. I go plug it in, and WATER is blowing out of one of the air holes! It must have been returned at some point, but is there a way I can fix this and remove the water, or just get a new one?? I'm trying to switch over some nano tanks to sponge filters...

    Plants in tank corner dying

    On my 20 long, I have a Current USA Satellite Freshwater LED Plus light. The light itself does not extend the full 30" of the tank. I have plants planted in the corner of my tank that are dying (I've had this issues for 3 years actually) and I am wondering if it could be because the light...

    Issues with Fluval Stratum substrate in planted tanks

    I've recently started using Fluval Stratum in my planted aquariums, and it has been nothing short of a disaster! EVERY tank that I have put the fluval stratum in has suddenly the tank is covered in this long stringy brown algae. Now I get it, extra nutrients in the water can cause algea. So...

    Seriyu and Okho stone from Michaels

    Today I discovered that Michaels is selling Seriyu stone and okho stone! Now they are selling it as lime stone and granite, but I beg to differ. Has anyone else bought any of these stones or used them in their aquarium? I've bought a lot of my aquarium rocks from Michaels, but these are new...

    Non Rift Lake African Tank

    I’ve been thinking if turning my 33 gallon long aquarium into an African aquarium, not not the typical African Cichlids tank. Nothing from a rift lake! I wanted Congo Tetras to be the main school fish, but I don’t know if anything else other than Kribs, that come from Africa. suggestions in...

    Green Frog Invasion

    eFor the past two years I have been having issues with Northern Green Frogs taking over my summer tubs. Last year it wasn't that big of an issue, but this year in my 55 gallon patio pond / tub, I have at least 17 green frogs living in there. I was trying to breed danios, but I have had zero...
