    Are ottos beginner fish?

    Hi, so I just went to the store and got 3 otto fish. I have a lot of green algae in my tank and the woman said these would be the perfect fish. She said they were beginner fish but now I am reading online that they can be very sensitive. Are these a beginner fish in your opinion?

    Is my snail dead?

    My snail is laying on its back which he never does. He has been coming out of his shell less and less because I think he is old. I have attached a picture of the snail. I smelled the water and it seems normal but I also added nitrazorb to the filter recently so it might absorb it all.

    Fish bullying when eating

    Hello all. I am having an issue with my danios bullying my cory catfish during feeding time. During all other times they basically just school with their own kinds and leave each other alone. I feed flakes for the danios and sinking tablets for the corys. The first minute is okay because the...

    How to slowly add zebra danios?

    I am wondering how to slowly add zebra danios so I don't have a spike. Last time I added three fish, I had an ammonia spike that sadly killed one of my old fish. I want to add two at once but I am scared that they will bully my corys because there is not enough of them. Advice? Thanks in advance

    Mystery Snail eating Amazon Sword?

    Just got my first real plant yesterday and today my snail has already chewed three leafs off. Any advice to get the mystery snail to stop? The amazon plant was perfectly green and healthy when I got it and I thought mystery snails only eat dead things?

    Changing too much water?

    Hi, It seems like the general guideline of water changes is 25% every two weeks. I change 50% every week or week and a half. I have a 29 Gallon tank with false julli cory cats (4 adults, 1 kid), 2 nerite snails, and 1 big mystery snail. This seems like a pretty low bioload imo and I am planning...

    Population control?

    Hello. On impulse, I bought a sunburst platy today. I am pretty sure it is a female. It is about an inch long. In my tank I have snails and 4 false julii corys. I don't think snails or corys will eat the babies. I am not sure if she is pregnant now but I am noticing that she is not interacting...

    I have a 29 G tank with 5 false julii corys. I usually feed them 10 bottom feeder pellets per day (2 each).
