    36 Gallon stocking ideas!

    Hi guys ! I'd like to fill a 36 gallon tank with some medium size Americans. I'd like to avoid couples in order to prevent agression during breeding. I don't mind some territoriality but I don't want two fish killing everyone in the tank because they have fry. I do love Rams and Apistos, but...

    40 Gallon Tank 36 gallon, 36 inch long, stocking ideas including a Pearl Gourami.

    I was going to sell my two 36 gallons in order to buy a 75 and do a Male Peacocks Show Tank, but let's say the budget is not there yet, so I want to do something with my 36. I really would like to have a pearl gourami as a centerpiece. I'm pretty open to any other suggestions. My girlfriend...

    If I'm clean and use only used water from his tank, could I take a bath with my Betta ?

    I know I'll be judged for that one, but know that if I ask, it's to avoid doing something dangerous and refrain from doing it if told to. One of my betta seems too intelligent and curious for a simple betta. If I put my hand (clean, no soap) in his tank, he comes to it and rubs himself on my...

    5 Gallon Tank Should I remove my Ramshorn Snails feces or they're good for the plants ?

    I have a planted 5.5 gallon with a Betta and a bunch of Ramshorn Snails. I never noticed their feces because I used to have black gravel, but since I've redone the entire setup where I made two small "beaches" of white sand, I notice that they make A LOT of waste. At first I was removing them...

    5 Gallon Tank Could 1 Endlers be kepts in a 5.5 gallon w/ a very peaceful betta ?

    I have a betta that is currently in an hospital tank for a columnaris problem. While he's in there, I completely redone his 5.5 (long) tank, with lots of plants, rocks, caverns and hiding spaces. I know it is usually said that a betta should be the only fish in a 5 gallon, I also read that a...

    20 Gallon Tank What type of Cories could go with 7 Black Skirt Tetras and 1 Dwarf Gourami

    Hi guys, I have a 20 Gallon tall that has been running for maybe a year or a year and a half. It has a big driftwood near the surface, some real plants and some fake ones. It was all real plants at first, but since my current filter is a bit overkill at the moment (AC50) , all the long plants...

    Purple Algae in 20G Freshwater Tank

    Hello, I have purple algae in my tank. Mostly on my rock, but also on the glass and on some plants. When I google Purple Algae, people usually refer to Black Beard, Cyanobacteria and Coralline, but when I compare them to mine I feel like none of them look that much similar. It is not...

    1g hospital tank, question about heater

    I have a betta that caught Columnaris, and I've put him in an hospital tank that is around 1 gallon, with Aquarium Salt, Catapa Leaves and Malachiite Green. I change the water every day. I have a heater, but it's not one that I can change its temperature. It is preset @ 78F. The first day I've...

    I think my Betta might have Columnaris

    It's been about a week that I noticed that my Veil Tail had some discolored areas on his left side. It looks like Columnaris/Saddle back. There are no bumps or reliefs, and the scales seem to be less apparent, like filed. I will post pictures below. I read about how to treat it, but in...

    Do you think my Black Skirt Tetra (black) is being bullied ?

    Hey guys, do you think my Black Skirt Tetras is being bullied ? (the black BST) We see his fins more clearly in the last 5-10 seconds of the video where he is still for a few seconds. It seems to have be a little torn / nibbled, yet I don't see him getting chased more than the others (chasing...

    Can a single male peacock be kept in a 40G-Br (36") + maybe dithers/others

    Hey guys, I was in fact first looking for a possibility of dual-colony tank of Malawis for my 40 Gallon Breeder. I know it's small, and even too small for most Malawis, but I've found some combination that seemed generally accepted in the hobby in cihclid-specific forums. I know Saulosis...

They were all taken in my kitchen, some under the oven-fan'S light, some under the ceiling fan light, some perpendicular to the window and some with the window behind me. Also, on each of these...

    Can a Beta get stuck in an empty extra-large Escargot Shell ?

    I've read that Beta fish were very good at getting stuck in very small areas (often resulting in death), for example in DIY snail-traps. I cycled a new 5 gallon tank who's going to welcome a Betta, and I would like to incorporate one or two Escargot Shells as decoration. However I'm afraid a...
