    40 Gallon Tank Has someone tried only two bn plecos, not a group?

    I've read a lot about killer plecos but my male seems to be very docile. He flares his little side spikes a lot but never darts at another fish, even if they touch him he'll just scurry away. I was thinking about getting a female, I know the males are mean to eachother but I can't find anything...

    40 Gallon Tank Will kuhli loaches be a good addition??

    I had 2 nerites before and 2 mysteries, now I have a separate tank for all their babies bc I was overrun, but they were sweet never ate a plant! I had gotten a new tank and fresh plants and ended up with a ton of ramshorns and they're what ate every plant no matter what food I offered. Still...

    40 Gallon Tank Will kuhli loaches be a good addition??

    I appreciate the response! That sounds like a great set up, a 90 gallon is like a dream lol and I'll definitely check those out! I've had awful luck with snails though so I'd gotten a bunch of silk plants, all mine seem to love a dense tank too

    40 Gallon Tank Will kuhli loaches be a good addition??

    Upgrading soon from 20 to 40! Currently have 1 betta, 1 bn pleco, 6 rasboras + 3 fry. I would love to add kuhli loaches after the switch but my substrate is primarily smaller gravel, does anyone have good experience keeping them with that or will they get hurt? I've also found a lot of back and...

    Harlequin rasboras

    I would like to be reassured that this is an itty bitty baby and not some sort of parasite! My harlequins have had one baby in the past who is now full sized and yesterday I noticed three little tiny ones but I've never seen one this small and can't find any search results. New mom panic lol

    20 Gallon Tank Can I add more?

    I was looking for some opinions, I have a 20g high with 1 betta, 6 harlequin rasboras, and 1 bn pleco. I previously had a mystery snail outbreak but didn't have the heart to kill them so I gave the snails their own tank. I always wanted loaches but I had two snails first, read they eat them...

    Pennywort Trimming

    Why is it that whenever I trim my pennywort, that whole stem dies off?? It was growing great, tall and sprouting new leaves, but when one browns and I trim it it doesn't grow back. I woke up today and found the one totally snapped, I'm afraid if I trim it the whole plant will die

    Filter or pump?

    I currently have a double sided sponge filter in my 20 gallon tank but it doesn't seem to be enough. Do I need a stronger air pump or a second filter? I don't know how air pumps affect the filters, I know it raises GPH but will it increase the water flow too? I need to keep it gentle for my...

    Mortar as glue?

    I'm making my own slate cave/structure thing and my dad suggested using mortar instead of glue to hold the walls and everything together. I found a lot of conflicting info on it, a possibility of it raising ph? Was curious if there's any personal experience doing this, as in small quantities in...

    A lot of BN Pleco questions!

    They do look super similar! Both their heads are lighter than the body. I got him from That Fish Place, it doesn't say on their website what age they sell the babies but I wasn't expecting him to be so old lol I was hoping he'd get closer to 6in He's eaten zucchini before but ignored it entirely...

    A lot of BN Pleco questions!

    Well I'm glad he's eating something! I wasn't sure if a new tank would've developed that already, my other fish eat bloodworms and I see him picking them from the gravel sometimes. &I was also SUPER excited when his whiskers started growing in! I like how round the females are but the whiskers...

    A lot of BN Pleco questions!

    Is it normal for him to be so pink or am I doing something wrong?

    A lot of BN Pleco questions!

    I got my Pleco as a baby not knowing anything about them, just looking for something to add with my betta and harlequins, the store suggested one and said the set up should be fine. I now know he should have a bigger tank, especially with the other fish, but I don't have the space right now. My...
