    20 Gallon Tank My fish tank water keeps turning green

    My fish tank water keeps turning green. Everything I read says it's either caused by too much light or too much nutrients. I just have the light that came installed on the lid with my TopFin 20 gallon set and I keep it on about 6 hrs a day. I don't think this is the problem considering I feel...

    20 Gallon Tank Sick betta?

    I've had this betta for just a couple weeks and there are some things that concern me. First, is his head. He has these red spots on his head and I can't tell if it's discoloration on his scales of if he's missing scales. I can't remember if he looked like this when I got him, but I just noticed...

    I'm currently cycling my first ever tank, so I am very new to this and didn't even know about the nitrogen cycle before I started this.

    20 Gallon Tank Black diamond blasting sand and ADFs

    So, I'm new to fishkeeping and am planning on stocking my 20 gallon with a male betta, some snails, and some ADFs. The tank has been running for a little while to cycle. Right now I have 30/60 and 40/80 grit black diamond blasting sand over some gravel. I thought this would be best for the...

    20 Gallon Tank Plant..rot???

    I'm really new to keeping aquariums. I'm trying to do the best that I can as I know that a lot of people don't care about fish or are under the false assumption that aquatic life don't feel pain. My tank is a 20g tall and is set up for cycling right now. I got this very small plant that was...
