    How long to drip acclimate 14 degree temperature difference?

    I just had some fish arrive in the mail and the water was 61 degrees. I'm putting them in a quarantine tank that has 75 degree water....how long should I drip acclimate them to ensure the first aren't startled by the warmer water?

    Best way to treat guppy grass for snails/pests?

    I just bought some guppy grass from a local hobbyist who grows it in his pond. What's the best method to treat the guppy grass for any pests/eggs without killing it? I did an alum dip on guppy grass I had from a few months ago and I think that ultimately dried it out too much and killed it.

    Fish dying in quarantine tank due to temp swing?

    Likely a dumb newbie mistake ahead: I think I know the answer to my question but figured I'd ask it here anyway....I bought 6 oto cats and 12 furcata rainbowfish and have them in a 5 gallon quarantine tank. I put a heater in there but it sent the water up to 82 degrees, so last night I...

    Thanks--ive been adding in cycled media from other tanks to help. I use searched prime...might just start using it daily to detoxify anything while the fish are in there.

    I bought 5 peacock gudgeons from my LFS 2 weeks ago. They've been hanging in a 3 gallon quarantine tank and all have looked healthy and are eating well. I was going to transfer them to my 75 gallon community tank this morning, and then saw one of them was dead. Checked parameters and there is...

    How soon can I add cherry shrimp?

    I recently got back into aquarium keeping and am hooked! I just set up a divided shrimp tank in a 20 gallon high and added water yesterday along with some bio material from my 5 gallon shrimp tank (a sponge and ceramic media) and squeezed out filter sponges from my 75 gallon main tank to add...

    Okay great thank you for the replies! I was going to make it a guppy/catfish/pleco/shrimp/snail tank....you think I'm safe to good ahead and add in the catfish to start since I think they'll be hardier?

    How long to cycle a 75g with old filter/bio material?

    I'm converting my 15 year old 75 gallon to a shrimp/guppy sanctuary....cleaned out the tank and substrate but left the old water in the filters for a little over 24 hours, added sand and refilled the tank up with clean water, turned the filters back on. The water now smells so I'm guessing a...

    75 gallon Easy Breeding Tank Setup

    Hi all, planning to convert my 75g tank to a new peaceful breeding tank with lots of different critters that hopefully all reproduce without a ton of work and can have fun selling back to LFS and other aquarists in the area. Planning to start relatively slow, but my thought process early on was...
