    Small white external parities

    Please note, I don’t need help with treatment, I’m simply making this post because when previously looking for info, I found very little, so I though now that I know more, I would share my findings.

    Never seen this before... "clamped" betta fins

    This has been going around my fishroom and I am at a total loss. All cycled tanks, planted, regular water changes, but some of my betta are having major fin issues.

    Word of Caution- Injured Pleco

    Just sharing my story and hoping this doesn’t happen to anyone else. So I use a pre-filter sponge on my tank. Gives more SA for BB since it’s pretty heavily stocked and prevents stuff from getting sucked into my filter since the intake had larger gaps. Well the pre-filter sponge somehow fell off...

    Using Python/Aqueon Water changer and Prime

    So I recently got my python extended so it actually reaches my tank now. But this has also lead me to look into how I do water changes, and how much dechlorinator I use. The prime bottle says to dose for the total volume of the tank when adding your tap water directly to the tank. I'm not sure...

    Found this wood-would it work in a tank?

    I went on a little walk this morning and found some neat wood pieces. Is this something I could put into a tank? Assuming I treat it appropriately.

    What dirt is safe? Drited tanks

    Hello! After reading through many forums and watching many YouTube videos, I am at a loss. I see only one soil ever recommended for doing dirted tanks and its one you cant even buy anymore (miracle-gro organic choice potting mix). So what do I use? I hear people say "just use organic potting...

    Dirt for dirted tank?

    What are your recommendations for dirt to use in a dirted tank? Bonus if I don’t have to buy a screen to sift it. I just moved out and have almost nothing, but if needed I could. Thanks!

    Neon tetra with red gills

    I’ve had this group of 6 neons for almost 2 months now. They came to me as a surrendered tank along with a betta who has since passes. Now it’s just the 6 of them in a 10 gal. They have bright red gills, and are more pale in color. I did two rounds of antibiotic treatments with kanaplex and...

I was thinking of doing 2x 200W for reliability but was also looking at inline heaters to look nicer in the tank. I have only ever used submersible so I know very little about them. I'm going to be...

    Melafix and Bettafix for use with labyrinth fish

    Hey guys, so something I commonly see on here is people advising against the use of melafix and bettafix in bettas. I have also advised the same. I was wondering if anyone could share studies they have found, and basically anything more concrete on a reason as to not use it. I know that the...

    What are these in my tank?

    So... I was observing my tank earlier and noticed some tiny little things swimming around. This is particularly strange since I just totally broke down the tank and did a massive re-scape. It’s also still cycling from being a dirted tank and I WAS doing it fishless. I think I had some...

    So I’m planning a breeding project, and it’s still a long ways away but I’m wondering if anyone has some good resource suggestions for learning more about it.
