    Rainbowfish Sex change?

    I have 3 millennium rainbows right now. When I bought them I had two females and one male. Over time, it would appear one of the females has turned male. However, now that means I have two males and one female. Why did the fish change sexes when there was already a male in the tank? The males...

    Amazonia introduction?

    So I already have fish in the tank. They’ve been in there a while. I’m replacing the substrate because I used reef sand and it made my water wayyyy too hard. So now I have to add the Amazonia WITH the fish still in the tank. My quarantine tank is only 5.5 gal which is way too small to keep them...

    White particles in water?

    Mine is constant regardless of water changes . Fish don’t seem to mind, but I find it ruins the aesthetics

    Amazonia introduction?

    I just bought some Amazonia substrate. I’ve been told to make sure I have a planted tank right away. But I’m also nervous because I’ve heard it can make your water acidic and mess with the nitrogen cycle. How can I make sure I keep my water somewhat basic, and don’t kill all my fish?

    White particles in water?

    I see so many people with crystal clear water. I have never had that with this tank. There’s always soooo many white particles in my water. I’m thinking maybe it’s my sand (oolite aragonite. I’m already replacing to Amazonia it just hasn’t arrived), but I’m also wondering if my fluval 50gal...

    I got this little hitchhiker along with some plants. She seems to be popping out little minis so I figured it was time to ID what she is

    To euthanize or not to euthanize?

    Today I went to my tank and found two dead guppies attached to my filter. I jiggled the filter to get them unstuck so I could scoop them out, only to find one still alive. This guy has been on my watch list for a few days now as his tail is starting to drop down a little. He’s also got some...

    Nutrient rich substrates?

    What cheap fast growers would you recommend? Where do you buy from? Is there anything I need to do to combat the lower pH and ammonia? I'm also thinking I will layer my substrates because I want a white appearance but obviously the amazonia is black. So the roots of the plants will be in the...

    Can I use Oolite sand in a betta community tank?

    I have to redo the tank. It's making my plants not do well and putting strain on my fish. It's going to take a ton of work but I'm going to have to scoop it all out with the water still in and then replace.

    Can I use Oolite sand in a betta community tank?

    Good thing you figured it out early. Im over a year into this freshwater tank and just realized the other day why I can never get my hardness to lower despite only using RO water.

    My new koi male betta doesn't eat and doesn't move much

    Bettas in general are not very active fish. In fact, I find them to be much less active than angel fish, which are infamous for being boring swimmers. Next, it is very common for fish to not eat for 3 days after being introduced to a new tank. I don't even bother feeding my new fish on the first...

    Nutrient rich substrates?

    I'm trying to replace my current substrate with something that'll really help my plants flourish. I've heard that aqua soil (amazonia) is really awesome for that, but when I looked at the reviews they said that it messed up their water chemistry really bad for a while (pH and nitrogen issues) as...

    Can I use Oolite sand in a betta community tank?

    if it is oolite aragonite, no no no. I put that in my tank and later found out its made up of crushed coral, seashells, and limestone, which all raise your water hardness through the roof. Im now having to replace it all

    Is this columnaris?

    It definitely looks like a fungal infection to me. The spots are a little dark for columnaris, but it still could be that.

    Help me understand/pick my substrate (PLEASE)!

    While I don't think you NEED aquasoil to have a planted tank, I have noticed a lot of fish stores have the Amazonia substrate in their plant selling tanks. Downside of that is they only have black,but then you can do the layering of substrates (which btw as far as I know, there are no "rules"...
