    Algae Id?

    It has a very spiderweb like appearance and appeared rather quickly... any idea what it is and how to get rid of it. It seems to love my crinum plant but my pennywort, tiger lotus, crypts and java fern are unaffected. Jocelyn Adelman , thoughts?

    Is This A Loading Bearing Wall?

    Hopefully this is the right place for this... I may upgrade my 40b to a 75 gallon in the near future!

    Fin Nipping Barbs! Will Adding More Help?

    I have a school of 7 tiger barbs in my 55 and they've started to nip at my pleco's fins. He's big enough to defend himself but he doesn't seem to be all that bothered but his dorsal is getting pretty ratty looking. I assumed 7 was a big enough school. Will adding more barbs get rid of the...

    Lchi's 20g: Shell Dwellers!

    I'm taking a break from EBA breeding to knock something off my fishy bucket list; keeping a colony of shell dwellers! I will be using a 20 long that used to be my nursery tank.

    20 Long Possible Shell Dwellers?

    I realized I can repurpose 6 pack caddies as a bottle holder for various water additives: Makes it so much easier to dose multiple tanks when they're corralled together like this. Would love to hear "hacks" from others too!

    When Do Rcs Stop Breeding?

    Its kind of a silly question but humor me... I had read these shrimp stop reproducing once they reach the maximum number the tank can this true? I have a 2.5 that is looking a bit crowded so I wanted to know if I should thin the herd or let them be. Thanks in advance!
