My...

    Worried about fish eating others

    I’m getting fish in a couple of weeks and I’m getting worried about one of the species being able to eat the other. I plan on getting peacock gudgeons (get about 3 inches) and Asian rasboras AKA rummy nose rasboras (smaller than rummynose tetras) the rasboras only get about an inch and I’m...

    Cleaning filters

    I'm going to have two sponge filters in my tank. I was wondering since I have two, would it be ok to rinse one sponge in aquarium water (as needed) during water changes? That way not all of the beneficial bacteria would be rinsed away.

    Thank you, I'll definitely check it out. Though there will need to be somewhere to hide on the right.

    Filter question

    About one half (the right side) of my tank is going to be a sandy beach, not much you can do to hide it there. Unless I hide it behind a rock formation, one species going in the tank needs places to hide to feel comfortable.

    Filter question

    I can't have a filter with a powerful filter, some of my fish aren't good swimmers and the plants won't do good with a powerful current. I also don't think I'll have enough room for a canister.

    Filter question

    I was originally gonna do two sponge filters in my tank but I want a natural look so I was gonna do one sponge filter and hide it in the planted part of my tank (I'll be carful to not let anything grow too close to it), but I need another filter in there since the sponge will most likely go into...

    10 Gallon Tank How slowly should I stock my tank

    Thanks, how do I know if adding the next group would be too much for the tank? I want to wait a longer period of time before adding the endlers, how would I know if adding them would make the bioload too much for the setup to handle?
