    Finally ready to add more fish I think

    Hi, everyone. First let me say I'm really enjoying this place. I wish I knew more about more things so I can be of more help, but hopefully I'll get there! In the meantime, I'm really happy to have found a nice place, with nice people, to learn and ask questions. OK so I've asked a version of...

    Tiny white string on decor?

    Hi, everyone! I have two seemingly new things going on in the tank. 1. Yesterday, I replaced my rock wall (resin) with bubbler with a new one. Same item just swapped it out. The old was was really starting to look bad. I rinsed the new one thoroughly. A few hours after putting it in, I noticed...

    Serpaes are chasing... more than usual...

    Hi, everyone. I'm down to four serpae's in my 20 gallon high and have noticed a lot of chasing today. Long story, but I was down to two, decided to build them back up to five. Everyone was getting along great then one of the originals died. That's all I have in the tank now except for 5 plants...

    PH of 9 from the tap

    Hi, everyone. I've been stepping up my water change game and since then, recently had a fish die. I'm taking a time out to check everything, learn some more, and adjust my approach. I tested my tap water, which I've done before. But this time, the pH is about 9. I think I missed it last time...

    Failed to stop unknown illness :(

    Hi, again everyone! Well, I had my first fish pass away in about 18 months. I've recently re-stocked to 5 serpae tetras (or what I thought were serpaes) and was in the process of letting them settle in before adding a second group. It's been about two weeks since getting back up to 5 and since...

    78 in the tank / 68 from the tap

    Hi, everyone. I think a form of this question has been asked before, but couldn't find my specific case. I've recently stepped up my water changes from "12.5% try to do weekly but usually didn't" to "25% weekly no matter what" and I'm liking the new routine. So in my 20 gallon, this is a 5...

    Marineland Penguin Pro 125 fit issue

    Hi, everyone. I currently have a Marineland Penguin 150 in my 20 gallon (tall not wide) freshwater tank. It's great (I think so anyway). Right or wrong I'm a fan of the biowheel. I think this goes back to my very first tank when I was a kid that had an under gravel filter. To me, the biowheel...

    What will fish think of background?

    Hi, everyone! I’m thinking of adding a basic matte black or blue background to our 20 gallon tall freshwater tank. I’ve done a lot of reading and I’m not sure I’ll love it but may try anyway. Of all the reading, I read one review that said adding the background caused his fish to stress out. I...

    Adding to a 20 Gallon Tank

    Hi, everyone. First time posting. We have a 20 gallon (high) tank. It is well established and have had it about 2.5 years. We originally stocked it with 5 red tetras (Serpae Tetras) and 3 platys. Early on, we thought the red tetras were a little aggressive with the platys. Over the next 2 years...
