    10 gallon stocking suggestions?

    10 gallon can be a mission to maintain but that's subjective. If it were me I would plant the heck out of it, which should not be too costly since it's small. I'd get a school of ember tetra and a female Betta. Or a beautiful male Betta and nothing else. Good luck

    30 Gallon Tank Tank Lid VS no tank lid

    Fish jumping out of the tank should be enough to get a lid imo. I've had them both and every open top tank I've had has had jumpers, all kinds of different types of fish. If you don't really mind losing a fish here or there then go for the open top. Personally having to top my tanks off from...

    Best way to clean diatoms off of gravel??

    Thanks. I hear that they do eventually go away. I have another tank that I waited for that to happen and it was several months and it didn't get much better so I got tired of looking at the ugly diatoms and cleaned it off the rocks and it hasn't come back. As far as the gravel goes in my other...

    Best way to clean diatoms off of gravel??

    Hello, I just removed about 3 lbs of gravel covered in diatoms. I was thinking a bleach or vinegar soak for 24 hours they heavy rinse should do the trick. Any recommendations?? Thank you

    Hello, I have a 50 gallon stocked with 16 tiger barb. I originally had 10 of the common stripped tiger barb the yellow ones with black stripes with black sand substrate.

    Please help stocking me stock my fish tank......

    Great points. Thanks. Yeah Congo Tetra do get big which is why I wanted them. I didn't think about the food with apistograma I thought they were going to be more like German Rams which are more outgoing from what I have come to realize. I have plenty of filtration and I don't mind over feeding...

    Electric blue acara tank mates 50gallon

    Yes I was concerned with that. I'm going to just get one as centerpiece fish. I'll keep the Apistoramma and probably a school of tiger barb. Hoping Barb and Apistoramma don't become an issue

    Electric blue acara tank mates 50gallon

    Do you think 2 EB Acara is pushing it? I was thinking maybe just one. They get pretty big. I forgot to mention I have 3 apistoramma in the tank as well. I can move them if I absolutely must. I'm leaning towards barbs now. Thanks

    Electric blue acara tank mates 50gallon

    Chichlid Stocking suggestions 50g or 65g

    Thanks for all the advise. I'm going to stick to smaller size cichlids. I'm def going with 50g and 2 convincts. I was thinking about a school of tiger barb to go along with them. Thoughts? Thinking 7-8 TigerBarb, they get some size to them as well. Not having the extra foot kills me, a 75 would...

    Chichlid Stocking suggestions 50g or 65g

    Thank you, glad to hear there ARE options. Im looking for something on the bigger side. I have German Rams and they are near little fish. I really like the look of Salvini Cichlids. Would a breeding pair work in a 50? It sound like 65 makes more sense
