    75 Gallon Tank Should i just give up?

    just woke up from a stress-dream about the tank sooo gonna write some replies :~( i really appreciate your input, and you're right. it just hurts a lot. it's my passion, but i'll never be able to afford a tank like this again. (bought the initial setup with stimulus money, disabled w no job)...

    75 Gallon Tank Should i just give up?

    i think it's not so much about the tank, and more about my rampant untreated anxiety. treatment is impossible to find right now, and i'm at the end of my rope and feeling so low and hopeless. i don't know if i can care for a tank and myself at the same time. my heart hurts so badly for this.

    75 Gallon Tank Should i just give up?

    my tank doesn't have any real problems. it's a nice hefty marineland one. i have chronic generalized anxiety disorder and it feels like i've aged years over worrying that the tank would give out. i LOVE fish, and this is like my dream tank. but i don't know how much more i can handle. i've also...

    A horrible, horrible night

    this is my absolute worst nightmare. reading this thread makes me want to sell my 75gal, it's hard not to worry about this sort of thing when i'm already prone to anxiety. :~(

    Is my nerite alive or dead?

    if the trapdoor comes off it is 100% dead. i don't actually think you killed it by dropping it though, i think it might have already passed on before you picked it up.

    Curing Fungus on snails, preventing the spread?

    hey fish friends! i've got a little problem that i'm trying to prevent from spiraling out of control. the brother and i went to petco and picked out some mystery snails from the adoption tank. while i was in the store, i just thought they had a cool two-toned pattern. after i got home and was...

    75 Gallon Tank 75 gallon stocking ideas?

    wow, this is good to know! i know mollies can have quite the attitude, heh. thinking about having a huge school of platies and a nice big school of cories, maybe skipping the mollies. (or i really can't resist a single black molly, my fave, i'd be interested to see how they interact! and would...

    yeah, nothing planned for the bottom layer yet. didn't want a pleco (no matter how cute) because of how messy... i'm gonna do some research on dwarf pleco though! and i really like clown loaches! i wanted to get a few to take care of the mini ramshorns i have (sigh) but i didn't want them to eat...

    so safestart is a good start (heh) but it doesn't have any ammonia in it afaik, so the tank couldn't have cycled.

    75 Gallon Tank 75 gallon stocking ideas?

    it finally has happened!! my tank cycled, and i couldn't be happier. seeing the readings at 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 5.0 nitrate. i'm trying to get some ideas of stocking loadouts. so far i'm thinking 6x white skirt tetras, 4x mollies (all female), 6x various platys (bumblebee and panda, all...

    Fish Dying

    +1 that the tank probably isn't cycled.. nitrates shouldn't be at 0. also glad to hear you're ordering the real test kit, the strips are pretty much useless unfortunately! hope you can find a solution, it sucks to loose fishy friends </3
