    60 Gallon Tank Colourful planted tank to interest a toddler

    So it's been another couple of weeks, and the tank is looking really good! I added quite a few fish today, so I need to keep an eye on parameters to make sure I don't get any spikes. Stocking is now: 3 Platies (3f - panda, bumblebee, red wagtail) 3 Guppies (1m2f) 6 Otocinclus Catfish 13...

    1 male guppy out of like 10 guppies

    Amazing! I never knew. Love the tank! I bet you don't need to worry about ich if you keep them in saltwater? Or is there a whole host of different diseases you need to look out for?

    Yeah, just continue to do water changes to keep the nitrites down. Essentially, you'll need to continue to do frequent water changes until you have 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites and some nitrates

    Today I learnt that guppies can live in saltwater. That is so cool!

    60 Gallon Tank Fluval Roma 240 spray bar

    yeah, it's the predrilled base. My lights have just turned off for the night, but I'll get a picture in the morning. Does it matter if the pipe is narrow compared to the output piping? Will there be any problems with pressure do you reckon?

    60 Gallon Tank Fluval Roma 240 spray bar

    So, I'm sure other people have adapted their filter output on the the fluval 306, but for some background. I have the Fluval Roma 240 (2016 version), which has a fluval 306 external filter where the input/output comes up through the bottom of the tank. I'd like to change the output to a spray...

    What are you doing to your tank today?

    Only way they don't swarm into a clump at the top thinking they're going to get fed :P

    Stocking a 36 gallon tank

    The only issue I see with it is the numbers in the schools, I think minimum recommended for both catfish (I’m assuming corydoras?) and rasbora are 5 or 6. I’m not sure a 10g is ideal for them, but doable potentially? I’m sure someone else will come along and correct me :P

    What are you doing to your tank today?

    A water change and just admiring the tank :) Does anyone else love the view of their tank from the floor? It’s my favourite way to watch it

    15 Gallon Tank Should I try betta again?

    Thanks :) that seems like the consensus really. I think the plakat bettas look more natural anyway, and you can still get all those colours!

    65 Gallon Tank Brand new with fish, journal till cycled

    Will the filter sponge from your old filter fit in the new filter? It doesn’t have to be all of it, but if you get a bit of it out and fit it in the new filter it’ll help.

    15 Gallon Tank Should I try betta again?

    Thanks, hopefully it'll work out better this time. My plan is to be a bit more patient, get the plants established and the red cherry shrimp so there's a good colony in there. Then I'll add the galaxy rasbora and finally the betta. Easier said than done, because I'm typically impatient when it...

    15 Gallon Tank Should I try betta again?

    Ah I see what you mean. That’s what I’m thinking as well. It’s not like he arrived healthy and active and went downhill, he was lethargic and uncoordinated from the start. Serves me right for ordering him online I guess

    15 Gallon Tank Should I try betta again?

    This is the thing though, I don’t know what I did wrong last time. Unless it was simply my choice of betta I think I’ll go for a plakat next time. They just appeal to me more now than the long finned once. And, as you said, less of a concern surrounding fin rot. I’m also hoping a plakat would...
