    What is this?

    can anyone help me identify the plant in the middle? It’s the one with the red or green, long and really thin leaf. this plant is supposed to be red but my tank is low-mid light and no co2. I got this plant as part of a package deal from a Facebook seller, he had an overgrown tank and bought...

    Guppy death?

    Thanks for the tip! I’ll actually start taking my time when picking fish, although not too much time because my lfs limits the number of people in the fishroom due to covid.

    Guppy death?

    So my guppy died but I don’t know why. He started getting the shimmies so I quickly set up a quarantine tank. I changed the water twice a day since it was not cycled. I added nitrifying bacteria from a bottle and got a new sponge filter running on it. I placed a small internal filter and got...

    Why can’t we do 100% water change?

    Ah, kk. Tbh, I think unless new fish keepers do the research, majority of people don’t know how complicated fish keeping actually is. it doesn’t help when movies and tv shows use goldfish In bowls as props often.

    Why can’t we do 100% water change?

    As I mentioned it is more theoretical, my point of the question was about water changes causing bacteria crash and not the live stock.

    Why can’t we do 100% water change?

    yeah, that’s what I was thinking, one of the reason to not do 100 would be for livestock. Thanks for replying!

    Why can’t we do 100% water change?

    This question is more of a theoretical standpoint. I don’t actually do 100% waterchange. it is know throughout the hobby that doing waterchange for more than 50% is a no no because it can harm the beneficial bacteria. but doesn’t the bacteria livemostly on the surface anyway and not in the...

    10 Gallon Tank What is this? (Copepod eggs???)

    Thanks!! I was still unsure about gravel vacuuming since some info I came across mentioned if the tank was heavily planted, gravel vacuuming would do more harm than good. but I’m thinking now it’s based on the situation

    Male guppies dead others have split tails, endlers harassment?

    So one of my guppies are dead, the other guppy with the orange tail has its fin split and nipped. When I started adding livestock in my tank the first live stock I’ve put in it are 3 amanos, 3 endless and 3 assassin snails less than 2 weeks later, I put 3 blue guppies, one with an orange tail...

    10 Gallon Tank What is this? (Copepod eggs???)

    I’ve seen these eggs since I’ve started cycling my tank but I’ve never seen them on my water lettuce roots before. I think I’ve seen my Amano shrimp eat them.

    HALP!!!! ARE MY ARMANO SHRAMP GUNNA DIE!!?!?!?

    My Amano shrimp are pink!! I'm new to fish keeping so I don't have enough experience to accurately assess if they are actually sick or not. I fed them some bloodworms so I know its quite possible it is from the food they eat. Another possibility that I am worried about is the possibility...

    10 Gallon Tank Detritus Worms in a cycling tank

    Thanks for the tip! I don't have any algae yet, I purposely planted my tank heavily so I can at least avoid the algae during cycling, which surprisingly is working so far. *fingers crossed.

    10 Gallon Tank Detritus Worms in a cycling tank

    So my tank is in the middle of cycling, it is in the process of building up the 2nd bacteria population and nitrites right now are decreasing. Tank is heavily planted and substrate is fluval stratum, I have pond snails and bladder snails, I'm thinking of keeping them to challenge me in balancing...
