    20 Gallon Tank Synodontis lucipinnis in 20 gallon?

    I have a 20-gallon tank that has 6 lemon tetras, 5 harlequin/porkchop rasboras, 1 synodontis lucipinnis, and 1 lone serpae tetra (there used to be more but the school slowly dwindled as the years went by). I used to have a bristlenose pleco but unfortunately, it passed away a couple of days...

    Snails shells looking pitted, need higher KH?

    My 2.5 gallon Shrimp and Snail tank has 2 mystery snails and some MTS. I've recently noticed that their shells are getting pitted. I have a low KH at 40 ppm but a high GH at 150-300 ppm. Is my low KH the root of this problem and how should I solve it? I've heard crushed coral will raise KH...

    Puffers in a 20 gallon?

    I would like to put a puffer(s) in my 20-gallon tank sometime in the future, but I want something larger than a pea puffer. Do you know of any freshwater puffers that aren't pea puffers and could live happily in a 20 gallon? (I'm fine with doing a species only/1 fish only tank as I know some...

    Funny My snail made an appearance yesterday.

    My random snail, who hitchhiked its way into my 29 gallon when I put fish into it, decided to grace me with its presence yesterday! What a nice Mother's Day present! (Except I'm not a mother or even a girl...) Anyway, here is a picture of him/her! I'm not sure what kind of snail it is (but I...

    Here's how my day has been going :(

    This is a summary of my day so far. Today my super red bristlenose pleco and my dwarf petricola catfish decided they didn't want to share a cave anymore. They've brawled 5 times that I've seen and probably many more times that I haven't seen. To make matters worse it appears they are...

    Is this guppy pregnant?

    I have a 2 and a half-month-old guppy that looks like its pregnant. Her gravid spot seems larger and darker. I'm worried that she is too small to give birth and will die in the process I will attach some pictures but they are horrible quality (sorry.)

    GloFish opinions.

    I'm bored (because of quarantine) and I was wondering what your opinions are on GloFish. I'm not looking to start an internet war or anything I just want to know what people think. I for one am against them because I think it is cruel to the fish to inject dyes. Stay safe

    I just made this account and I was told to make a thread about me. I have been keeping fish for about 4 or 5 years but I only got real serious 6 months ago. I currently have 3 tanks, a 20-gallon community tank, a 29-gallon community tank, and a 1 3/4 gallon tank for guppy fry.
