I thought I would ask this since there are so many types of fish in the trade and an infinite about of niches that are popular.
By genre I loosely mean category or type, not necessarily scientific subsets.
You could even name a specific species...
I think his tankmates are becoming malnourished because he gobbles up so much of the food before they.
My neons and blue ram are much slower to react to food and don't gobble near as fast. My platy is a monster.
I have a colony of shrimp in my small 10 gallon platy tank.
Its pretty heavily planted with Java Moss, JAva Fern, Water Wisteria, Bamboo, Mopani wood.
I noticed my platy picking at something aggressively and to my horror it was a dead shrimp. I don't think it was already dead as it was still...
Its in my 10 gallon low tech tank. Currently also have Java Moss, Bamboo (temporary) and Java Fern which are pretty happy.
I don't use any ferts except Flourish Excel, which I have been told is safe to use with Water Wisteria.
Please help! I love this plants look.
It is sort of disintegrating...
I want a Betta in my office, but of course I can't do a 10 gallon set up in my small space. I would love something smaller that is heated and filtered.
Maybe it doesn't have to be a betta, it could be a mini shrimp colony, but my experience with those is they population explode fast and are...
I returned from a weekend retreat to find my favorite platy, Bumblebee, to be missing in my 10 gallon bow.
Its a small tank with 1 platy, 4 neons, and cherry shrimp. Its not very big but well maintained and planted with moss.
Its small enough of a tank that if he were a corpse he would be...
About a month ago I got a new Platy named Magellan. I asked the LFS keeper to give me the smallest fish in the tank and he literally have me the biggest platy they had. I guess its my fault for not saying anything.
Anyways I put in in my 10 gallon with another play and he started harassing...
We did get insane cold weather for where I live (30 degrees at night).
Its a 25W in a 10 gallon so I have had problems with it getting a little too hot usually (79 degrees instead of 77-78)
All of the sudden my tank get very cold (70 degrees) and now my thermostat light isn't on.
My favorite metallic blue guppy, Johnny Depp, is only able to swim at the bottom of the tank now.
He's by far the most active fish I have ever had (had him about 2 years now).
So I know this isn't his normal behavior.
He can still swim up when he really struggles (its a visual struggle)...
I have seen neon tetra disease and it didn't look like it. There was no curving of the spine, or bloating. He would still school with the other tetras.
For some reason he just started shrinking very small and losing all his muscle. He still kept his color but got very small.
Next thing ya...
or more specifically, mine.
I have a 5 gallon aquarium and 10 gallon aquarium. one with a small fluorescent light and another with a 25 watt LED light. both are heated and filtered.
My last bill was higher than I thought and I can't think what could be eating my electricity except my...
1.How much is the dosage for a 10 gallon?
2.Remove my whisper carbon filter? I don't want to soak up the fert.
3.Does the chemical contain anything that will harm my shrimp?
4.The bottle says that it will last a 50 gallon 1-2 months (or more), but at the capful a day dosage per 10...
