    Fluval Flex 15 Gallon

    Hello, I have a 15 gallon Fluval flex that I want to stock. I plan to have shrimp in the tank either Amano or Red Cherry (Leaning more towards Cherry's for breeding). I need some recommendations on a fish that won't mind a smaller tall tank and won't bother the shrimp. I think Galaxy Rasboras...

    Additional Stocking For 15 Gallon Fluval Flex With Betta

    I'm looking for possible small fish I could pair with my Betta. I've kept cherry shrimp and harlequin rasboras with him before. The other fish never bothered him and he never bothered them, with the shrimp he chased a few here and there but eventually gave up. I have a large rock sculpture I...

    Will This Keep My Bb Alive?

    I just got a fluval flex 15 gallon to upgrade from my 10 gallon. I don't have enough outlets right now to run my sponge filters so I placed them in the back with the back filter. I put the sponge filters against the intake so water will pass through them. Is this enough flow to keep my...

    Can You Clean Old Tank Sand?

    I'm switching my 10 gallon for a fluval flex 15 gallon. I was wondering if it would work to clean the old sand in my current 10 gallon to re-use? The sand has gotten alittle nasty from stuff getting under the first layer. Or am I better off buying new sand and cleaning that? I have shrimp so it...

    Switching Cories

    I am wondering what Corydoras would be suitable to switch with my Albino Corydoras that are in my 29 gallon. I have 1 dwarf gourami, 11 x-ray tetra, and 9 Albino Corydoras. I know I could do bronze as Albino are I think a different variation of bronze. Thanks for any help

    Help Stock My Friends 55

    Trying to make a stock for my friend who doesn't have a fish lore account but I have brought it up before. He has a preference for angelfish which we could probably only get one as I don't think he's equipped to handle aggression but if two is possible without harming the fish he'll likely get...

    Replacement Fish

    In my 29 gallon I have a dwarf gourami, 11 x-ray tetra, and 9 Albino Corydoras. I am not too thrilled with the x-rays as they come off alittle under colored, not too active, and I think they may have nipped the dorsal fins of two my corys. I was wondering if anyone had a good replacement for...
