    Aqua scape idea

    I was thinking that I could tie some moss to driftwood for some of the main kelp “trees” in the scape, what would be a good loss of choice. Was thinking maybe subwasertang could look right but not sure

    Aqua scape idea

    I currently am planning to get another tank. Idk what size but I kind of have an idea that inspired me. Was watching a random documentary and saw some underwater algae forests and thought it would be pretty cool to imitate it with moss. Here’s a picture for reference. My question is how would I...

    Cylinder/corner tank stocking

    So I’ve seen this idea on YouTube and I love the aqua scape. I’m not sure what size tank I will get or whether it’ll be a corner or cylinder tank, but nonetheless I’m interested in what I could stock in it. I would love to put some type of fish that could utilize the caves in an interesting...

    55 gallon stocking

    So I got 3, I did my due diligence in making sure they weren’t flying foxes. They have clear fins, a smudged black like that goes through to the tail. They rest on surfaces and no gold line like in flying foxes. I did notice today that they do some chasing with each other. I checked fins and no...

    55 gallon stocking

    I actually have 2 larger nerites they don’t seem to be touching the hair algae issue I have though. They actually seem less active these days but their shells don’t show any sign of calcium deficiency and I keep up with water changes. They are rather larger.

    55 gallon stocking

    Do you think I would be over stocked with the stocking you suggested? Just want to make sure before I do it, I know Siamese algae Eaters can get to 6 inches at their oldest

    55 gallon stocking

    Okay I appreciate the help, yea I think that would be nice. I was thinking maybe move the rock structure on the left and move the sword more into the corner leaving that space open for swimming but the cherry sand cardinals don’t mind dashing in between the branches at all. I have trouble...

    Rescaping aquarium with fish in

    I see, I will probably be rustling up the gravel though since I’m putting in new driftwood and dragon stone but i get what you’re saying. I’ll try my best. I think I’ll add a few drops of seachem prime as well to detoxify and potential ammonia or nitrites in the tank I see, I will probably be...

    Rescaping aquarium with fish in

    Would it be wise to have the water lower and dirty with the fish inside? I figured I’d want more water in so it won’t get as dirty. Doesn’t make much sense but I’m just checking lol

However this would involve removing everything except the substrate and moving them around. the tank is planted with black gravel so I know some filth will get into the water. I was thinking I...
