    Is 2 Nerites in a divided tank a mistake?

    thank you, will it be an issue that the 10 gallon doesnt have a secure lid? I have noticed these guys climb out of water more than the mystery snail does, my mystery snail usually just climbs the the water level and then drops to the bottom and doesnt leave the water

    Is 2 Nerites in a divided tank a mistake?

    I check my water every few days, do water changes about weekly but havent needed to change the water in a while. there is both a filter and heater in the tank and I do use a conditioner when performing water changes. the tank was also seeded with bacteria from the 10 gallon as well as bottled...

    Is 2 Nerites in a divided tank a mistake?

    I got stuck with the two bettas and needed a solution. thats what I came up with. a lot of the tanks I looked at online were a gallon or less for a betta and I didnt want to do that. i also wasnt about to set up a second 10 gallon tank and unfortunately neither betta would work in my existing 10...

    Is 2 Nerites in a divided tank a mistake?

    is there a way to edit the title after posting? i have a 10 gallon already with 5 guppies and a mystery snail, if I have an issue would I be able to move them to that tank? I really dont want to go through setting up another tank and my parents might be mad if I did.

    Floating Vertical

    I use the API master test kit. its really hard to give exact numbers when they only give certain color codes. my best guess would be 0, 0, and 0.2 for ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. my ph is about 8.3

    Floating Vertical

    I didnt have time to test before i left for work and posted at work. when I took the picture I tested and everything came back where it should be, barely reading if at all. i didnt test PH because that always runs high for me so even if that dropped it would still be in a good range.

    Floating Vertical

    he hasnt had any issues before and I usually feed about three pellets once a day. its possible I over fed the other day though because I didnt have time to take the lid off and tried the feeding flap that came with the tank, its terrible and I will never use it again. also its a 5 gallon tank...

    Expiration date on fish food

    So I just found a bottle of betta pellets that expired in 2014 in one of my drawers. the bottle is only a quarter of the way full. would it be safe to feed the rest of the bottle to my bettas? I know it probably doesnt have much nutritional value anymore so I would just add it to rotation with...

    5 Gallon Tank Confused on Levels

    no plants and it isnt the water this might be the case, so it is normal for me to see nitrates without ever seeing nitrites?

    5 Gallon Tank Confused on Levels

    About 2 weeks ago I set up my betta tank and started a fish in cycle. I had put extra foam in the filter of my 10 gallon for a week that I moved over last week. I have yet to read any nitrites and my ammonia has remained between .25 and .5 with regular water changes. today I was confused about...

    Preserving filter media outside of filter

    so I have some extra already dechlorinated water left over from a water change today and my filter is getting pretty noisy. I'm wondering if there is damage to the motor or something. I was wondering if i could remove my filter media and put it in that bucket so I can inspect the filter. if i do...

    Super Fast Cycle?

    ok thank you. I was worried what might have happened was somehow i had just stopped having ammonia without cycling and was afraid of killing my bacteria. with the fish in there that shouldnt be an issue right?
