    5 Gallon Tank Betta Fin Tail Problems?

    I have a 1 year old betta glofish named Mochi. Mochi has recently started nipping her own fins and I can’t figure out why. The tank parameters are perfect every time I check them (same as all my other tanks for years). The tank is partially planted and partially silk so no rough edges she could...

    Vertical Rainbow Shark?

    Does anyone have experience with Rainbow Sharks acting weird? My guy William Sharkspear likes to wedge himself vertically, head up, between the glass and a plant. Every time I try to take a picture or go near him he easily moves to the front of the tank to greet me, but the weird position is...

    5 Gallon Tank Over filtration?

    So I have a 5.5g tank up and running. The filter died last night but I had an extra 10g filter that I put in (keeping the old filter pad with it for bacteria). Do I need to buy a new 5g filter specifically? Or will the tank be ok with the 10? It is well planted with three little male guppies...

    20 Gallon Tank Feeding Times Help?

    So I had an incident a few days ago. I feed all my tanks (four of them atm) at 8:30am every day. But for the first time I was late by almost 15 minutes. My fish seem to know what time it is that they eat and being fed late was completely unacceptable to them. Poor things must have thought they’d...

    20 Gallon Tank Blue Light Plants

    Hi guys! I have been switching to live plants in most of my tanks and 3 out of four have live plants in them! Yay! The challenge now is that I have a 20g long Glofish tank that I want to switch to some live plants for. I would prefer to keep it as an atypical looking tank which means lots of...

    5 Gallon Tank Do Glofish Blue Lights Cause Algea?

    Hi guys! I have two almost identical 5 gallon Glofish tanks. The only major differences are that my Globetta tank has the standard blue light and my guppy tank has a regular light I put on it myself. The betta tank is FULL of hair algea and the guppy tank is perfect. The tanks are right next to...

    What Plants Do Shrimp Like?

    Hi guys! I have a bit of algae in the corner of a 5g betta tank that I can’t get rid of. I went to Petco for cat food and made the mistake of looking at the fish and ended up bringing home three cute lil cherry shrimp. I might have been too hasty though... do they even eat algae? It seems like...

    15 Gallon Tank Euthanasia, Breaks My Heart To Write This...

    Just like the title says: it breaks my heart into tiny pieces to write this but I need advice on how to euthanize a fish. My Blue is just over 3 years old and has been doing horribly the past month or so. He barely eats (even brine shrimp that’s usually his favorite), he won’t greet me, he just...

    15 Gallon Tank Filter Eating Fish??

    Hi guys! I have a standard aquian filter that came with my 15g tank. Recently it’s started eating my fish and I don’t know how. I have sponge covers so there’s no way (I can think of) for my small tetras to keep getting in there but I’ve still lost 2 to the Filter of Doom. Any suggestions on...

    15 Gallon Tank Betta too Skinny?

    Hi guys! I have a half moon king in my 15g tank. He is a couple years old and about 6 inches long. I’ve noticed recently that he is slimming down a bit. He is eating as much as usual: Dried blood worms once a week, bug bites twice a week, regular food the other 4 days. He’s just as active as...

    5 Gallon Tank Help setting up a planted tank?

    Hi! So I have a few plants in two of my established tanks but I’m starting a new planted 5gallon for a handful of Endlers/Guppies. If I started the tank yesterday- when do I add plants? After it’s cycled or during? What plants require no c02 added to survive? If none then how do I measure and...

    5 Gallon Tank First Salt Tank Jitters

    Hi all! So I have an extra 5g Glofish tank that I’ve been saving and was considering using it to breed and keep brine shrimp. Unfortunately I’ve never done ANYTHING with saltwater before.

    Hi! I have an extra 5g Glofish tank that’s just been sitting around for months (upgraded my fish to a bigger tank). I’m wondering if anyone has put some other fish in a Glofish tank?

    You’ve all converted me lol

    So after reading SO much info on here about how fish love real plants: I’ve done it. I’ve made the jump and put a real live plant in 3/4 of my aquariums! They look a bit silly next to my silk ones but I love them already. I got 2 money warts and an Anacharis. Any tips or tricks to taking care of...

    Hi! I currently have 5 glotetras and 1albino rainbow shark in my 20g. I’m unfortunately going to have to rehome (heartbreaking, I love my guy) my shark as I just learned recently that they should be in a 50+ tank.
