    This is my first time making a journal, so please bear with me. Anyways, yesterday I picked up a 10 gallon tank that I hope to get scaped and cycled by mid-October. I am not 100% sure what I want to stock this tank with but I have narrowed it down to either 6 oto cats, 8 cory cats, or a...

    10 gal. kuhli loaches or Cory catfish stocking

    Hi! I am hoping to get a 10 gallon tank soon and I would like either kuhli loaches or Cory catfish, would that be ok? It would be a heavily planted, species only tank with sand on the bottom.

    Help! Need advice on temp. tank stocking

    I recently redid my entire 5 gallon tank, it's all new water, soil (sifted and baked), new sand and some old gravel (to kickstart the cycle) as well as a brand new bubbler (the tank didn't have one before, I just got it). Apparently I didn't rinse the sand well enough because now my tank is...

    Black Racer Nerite Snail Help

    So I have had a black racer nerite for about a month, maybe less, but when I first set up the tank I didn't cycle it properly (completely my fault, it's my first time owning fish and I listened to a worker just trying to make more money), so we had an ammonia problem and didn't realize this for...
