The Aquatic Hive, 10 Gallon. The queen/king bee is the bumblebee catfish and the workers are the pea pufferfish. Sometimes they like to cuddle up with bumblebee catfish at night.

Why do you keep plastic plants with the clown loaches and regular plants with the other fishes ? Also word of warning the yoyo will jump when they get older so make sure the entire top is covered... if you leave a fish size hole they will ....

300 litre, 200 litre and 40 litre (there are 4 sparkling gourami and 3 nerite snails in this tank)

Hi, I have tried real plants with the loaches and they last about 2 seconds. They love to dig them up and eat them. They just play around the plastic plants.
I have a towel that totally covers the top of the tank.
There are also 7 black skirt tetras and a bristlenose in that tank.

Interesting. I have clown and yoyo in my 120 but haven't had problems with plants. Occasionally a new leaf gets nibble but there are so many new leaves it isn't a problem. Maybe i'm over-feeding my fishes ?

I feed them once daily and when I do water changes (weekly), they don't get fed that day. Maybe I'm under-feeding them?

I have angels in my tank so i feed them twice a day - i mean i feed the angels twice but if the loaches are hungry they come out and snatch the food. The yoyo are always hungry but the clowns are more selective. They also go wild for zuc I put in the the pleco and rasph. green. The thing is that i tend to feed growing fishes more than adults and my angels are a set of 8 i raised from frys and your loaches look to be pretty young but scale is always hard to tell from a picture.
--
anyway you shouldn't copy what I do as i'm pretty clueless myself. I can't say with any authority the proper number of times to feed the loaches.

My angel was in with the loaches, but they started nibbling on him so I had to move him over to the 200 litre. He's starting to fill out now (he's 4 years old and I only feed him once a day). Three of the clowns and two of the yoyos are 4 years old and the other two are 3 years old.

How large are your yoyo? My largest is somewhere betwen 5 and 6 inches but it is only around 14 months old. I had some other large ones but they jumped the rest of them are a bit smaller (I have 5 or 6 - i had 9).

I'm at work, but pretty sure my 3 year old is about 4 inches and she has eggs. The other two are about 6 inches. Maybe time to talk to a loach expert

For the past few months I was extremely busy with work and the tanks fell to the wayside. Ran out of CO2, I was barely dosing ferts, water changes were irregular and the plants became a tangled mess. Yesterday I decided to start with a fresh rescape. I ripped everything out, rearranged hardscape and plants, replaced CO2 tank and bought an auto fert doser to keep fert dosing consistent. I forgot to take a before pic yesterday, it was just an overgrown mess of tangled plants. The plants aren't looking super great right now. Now that I have CO2 going again and frequent fert dosings back in place they should be settling in and filling in soon. Thinking I should add some more wood hardscape.

I actually like the plants now. In my 40B where i added co2 i'm not sure i like the after picture as much as the before. I'm mostly playing with co2 to get some red plants to grow better but the side effect of overgrown green plants is a bit of a problem.

Btw what are the larger fishes - i know they are some kind of cichlid but not sure - keyhole?

Thanks! It's fun to see plants reach their maximum potential with CO2 but unless you have time for weekly major trimmings it can definitely be a bit of a pain. And yes those are Keyholes.

Let me at your tank for a couple weeks and you’ll see what a bad plant looks like. :confused:

Your tank looks great!

Attempting a planted tank after 8 or 9 years. 36g corner bowfront started in 2011. Many mishaps along the way. Current inhabitants - 2 marble angelfish, 7 white skirted tetras, 7 black skirted tetras, 2 bentosi tetras (5 years old), 7 emerald corys, 1 pepper cory, 2 mystery snails and assorted pest snails. I haven't had any losses in 2 years which makes me happy. Water (and my care) is very stable now. Need more plants. Pic is with moon light. This photo is just after rescape changed the substrate and lost a few plants.

It's not often the whole rack seems photogenic. I feel like the tanks are getting a little one-note though. Need to find something to replace the rotala red in the smaller tanks and get the variety back.

I'm not sure I agree with the tanks being one-note...I think they look all really different and cool! It's a great set up!

Hi, currently have 2 setups this being my favorite 1400 ltr, 300 ltr sump the tank is still growing out, 6 months old so the

This is my 120 these days. It seems to be a bit overgrown but most of the bba is leaving as mysteriously as it came. If you look carefully on the left side you can see one of my clown loach tails. As long as the eyes are hidden they think they found success hiding.

The 4 gold angels and 3 smaller black angels are babies from the two parents who laid another

Apistogramma hongsloi, male eating

snapshot from spawning display.

female in breeding dress

male patroling the territory, he only shows this coloration when hovering on top over the wood

whole tank

One might see the Egeria is starting to dissolve thanks to the water being quite dark. I'm likely going to replace it with wood and rocks from the middle, and maybe fixing a big piece of pennywort to it.

Show off your tank

HI all

I'm sure there is a place for this, however I couldn't find it. I would love to see pictures of all of your tanks, looking for ideas to remodel mine and include more real plants! Please share yours below to give me ideas . Here's mine, small and basic but does the job! I am also waiting for auction pads to sort the air stone tubing it won't be left like that!

Which color do you like?

My 55g, I have 4 Amazon swords which the small ones I'm struggling to keep rooted bc my 11in sailfin pleco spike is a bulldozer ;p eventually back drop will be changed, all the fakes will be changed out for real plants which soon I'll get floating plants and grass, and ill eventually swap out spikes area for drift wood.

I have a few baby angels so I decided to buy things for them to hide and explore and rearrange.

that is so cute. I love when fish watch over their eggs\fry. my corydoras take the eggs they lay as a meal, sometimes the females mate with the males just so they can feast of their own eggs lol.

It’s still a work in progress but I just started the switch to live plants (low tech tank) and I already like the way it looks a lot more!

My newest tank. Was supposed to be a shrimp only tank, but apparently I struggle with that. I added my one remaining, completely bloated white cloud, hoping she wouldn’t gorge herself on everyone else’s food in my main tank.

Close ups of the three networked(nano sump) tanks. The 20L and 10 steal the extra nitrate from the 29 allowing me to do this with no added nitrogen/ferts.

Oh that’s just an artificial plant that came with the tank. Never thought of it that way but thanks. I actually took it out today because I thought it was crowding my new mopani wood that looks like a ghost with big straight horns. Tank is 3 weeks old.

I think you mean the madagascar lace plant but it is more middle left. The true left back corner is a huge plant but you can't see it in the picture is some sort of melon sword.

Just did a rescape on my ADA 60P. My previous layout left very little room for the fish. It’s hard to see because of the jungle, but there were a bunch of seiryu stones. Hopefully this way my neons will be a little more active with all the space. Ignore the floating Monte Carlo patches. Any pro tips to get it to stay down?
