I have not seen him flash or gasp for air. Fins are not clamped. Active. But there...

    29 Gallon Tank How can I tell if my tank is cycled?

    The problem I have is that I don't have ammonia to put in my tank. I only have fish food in the form of flakes.

    29 Gallon Tank Can I keep a convict in my tank

    I will have a heater, a 29 gallon tank and a HOB filter that has the max capacity of 50 gallons (idk what that means yet, I don't have the tank yet, idk if 50 gallons is how much it's able to filter in an hour, but that's probably what that means). Can I keep a convict in there? I would decorate...

    A single firemouth in a 29 gallon: is it possible as a first fish?

    My mother dropped exciting news: i will get a 29 gallon aquarium soon! And I've always loved firemouth, and our local pet store has one! Should i get a single firemouth to start off in said tank, or is that cruel/too difficult? It comes with a filter that has the capacity for 50 gallons.

    What would be the best wet pet for a 75 gallon? (aside from giant bettas!)

    I've always loves oscars because of their personnalities. I used to work at a pet store, and the first thing I would look forward to in the morning was that one big oscar. It would swim up to me thinking im was about to give it food. Absolutely adorable. Unfortunately, oscars get way too big for...
