    How to get filter pump to stop buzzing?

    I usually put mine on a piece of foam, like thick yoga mat. If that’s not enough I fold up a hand towel and put the pump on that. If it was always quiet before maybe it’s just time for a new pump, idk... I’ve only been in the hobby for a few years so haven’t had one wear out yet...

    30 Gallon Tank How soon can I add fish after adding cycled media?

    I’m guessing they’re small since they’re only in a 3 gallon tank. In that case I’d add them and just keep a careful eye on parameters. You could use Stability, Safe Start or other beneficial bacteria additive too. I would think since you have the gravel and decor from previous tank, as well as...

    You could ask if the store you got it from will take it back. If you lived near me I’d take it. I have a 75 gallon Mbuna tank

    Female kribensis with 1 ram and pearl gourami.

    I would try it. I’d keep the extra tank running for a bit in case it doesn’t work out, but it sounds like the male Krib is your only aggressive fish. Putting him with a school of tetras sounds good - I don’t think he’d bother them except maybe at feeding time

    Best way to cut sponge cube for pre-filter?

    Does anyone have suggestions as to the easiest w in the cube so I can slide it over the intake as a pre-filter? I would guess a hot-knife? Or just scissors? [I made my own prefilters out of Poret foam blocks. It wasn’t exactly easy way but I took a drill bit almost the size of the intake tube...

    Need Help- Little African Cichlid Beat Up, Maybe Dying

    Yes, he was dead this morning. I took the bully and put him in the Sterilite this morning. I’ll figure out what to do with him after work. Cichlids are very difficult. I love their big personalities but that’s also a big problem. Thank you so much for your advice and empathy. I appreciate it

    Need Help- Little African Cichlid Beat Up, Maybe Dying

    Well I guess that’s good news; apparently if the swim bladder is damaged (not constipated) it’s hopeless I’m embarrassed that I don’t even know where the swim bladder is. Just know the words ‍♀️

    Need Help- Little African Cichlid Beat Up, Maybe Dying

    I had this little guy(?) in a 29 gallon with another small non colorful/dominant African Cichlid and 4 baby clown loaches. In an emergency I had to take my Dragon Blood Peacock male and put him in the tank because he was being victimized badly in the mixed tank. Well, then “Razzy” (Dragonblood)...
