    Normans Lampeye Killifish too big for 10 gallon?

    Hey thanks for the response. So I shouldn't get anymore? Just leave it at 3? I also don't plan to get much more plants. Maybe a Anubis or another java fern, I don't really like heavily planted tanks in a small size. I'm still doing daily water changes, as it seems the first colony of bacteria...

    Alright sounds like a plan. Ill get a rock, and a cholla log. should make the tank look a bit more "populated". Do nerites eat biofilm? i was wondering if i could use VERY SMALL amounts of bacter AE to grow some for him.

    10 Gallon Tank Are Nerite Snails The Best For Algae Control? Difference Between Different Nerites?

    Sounds good. I still want to test my GH just to be sure. im a bit anal when it comes to testing my water. On the topic of alage wafers, i have Tetra alage wafters that contain zuchinni. it might like that? Ill try to get one that stands out so i do see it, but my tank is pretty empty, it only...

    10 Gallon Tank 2nd aquaclear 20, or powerhead for more flow?

    That is true, and it is a cheaper solution to buying another AQ20. If i do that, ill just buy a sponge filter and use that to create more flow. good idea? Ill most likely get a cheap air pump as well, Don't need anything fancy. I just really like the AQ, and tbh, when i got it, i should of...

    10 Gallon Tank Are Nerite Snails The Best For Algae Control? Difference Between Different Nerites?

    hey, thanks for the response. The alage is mostly on the glass, so a nerite would be best for me. Good to know the max stocking number, I don't want to harm anything in the tank than what is already going on. As stated, i WONT be adding else anything including snails to the tank until the...

    Hello all, I currently have a 10 gallon tank with 3 normans lampeyes, that i plan to increase to 3 more.

    Normans Lampeye Killifish too big for 10 gallon?

    Hello, I currently only have 3 Normans lampeye in my 10 gallon tank. I had 10 but most of them died from a previous tank crash, while the remaining 3 survived. Ive been doing some reading on the fish, and i feel like i have made a mistake. From what i've found (and i could be wrong here), they...

    UPDATE: the snail has sunk, but is sitting on the bottom open a bit with the antenna curled up as well as its foot. seems to be a slight discharge as well. ive poked it and it does go back into its shell, but it does not look well. other than it possibly sick, does this happen with old age as...

    Mystery snail shell black and pitting

    alright i will test the PH and also order a peice of cuttlebone. as ive read, its best to break it in half, and put one peice in the filter and the other in gravel? could i just put the whole thing in the gravel? my filter is quite full of bio media.

Recently it's been just floating around for days and days and has been getting a shell that is pitting and turning black. I have not added calcium to the tank which...

    What Is It?

    Water softener will drop the PH of your water. Have you ever tested it? Inverts do prefer a higher GH and along that a KH of 1-4. I've seen people who have kept fish with water softeners and all was well, but inverts do prefer harder water. Test your tap water for GH and KH along with PH and see...

    Help! Brand New Internal Filter Won't Start

    I'm going to eat my own words, but ive seem some customization done to these filters (the aqueon ones at least). people use their own sponge followed by filter floss rolled inside the sponge, and then stuffed in the media conatiner. it has a plastic bio-grid, and while people online state they...
