    Silver tip tetra playful aggression

    Yeah I have had floating plants in there for a while but I have had problems when it comes to keeping them alive . Now I don't have that many left but I might buy some more . I used to have 6 hatchetfish until more recently when one of them jumped out of my aquarium during feeding and died.

    That horrifying nightmare episode from Pingu

    So I used to watch the cartoon series called Pingu when I was very young boy growing up as a 2000's kid in Sweden. Usually the show is very wholesome and cute but there is one episode that scared me so badly I could not sleep at all for the rest of the night. And keep in mind I was 19 when I...

    What are the freshwater aquarium fish kept privately that are most lethal to humans?

    There is the electric catfish also known as the electric eel which is not actually an eel but a fish. This fish can send out enough electricity to cause heart failure or at the very least high amounts of electricity which will be very painful but luckily you won't see it in most peoples homes...

    New to the hobby. Blackghost question.

    The first thing to do in situations like this is to check the chemistry of the water to make sure nothing has caused it to change also keep in mind that new tanks especially tanks that have gone through the cycle recently are not as stable in terms of water chemistry as a tank that has been used...

    What are the freshwater aquarium fish kept privately that are most lethal to humans?

    I have been keeping fish since early january this year and if there is one thing I have noticed when it comes to freshwater aquarium fish keeping it's that there are fish that are dangerous or even deadly to humans whether it's fish that are extremely toxic or fish that have sharp teeth. What I...

    Problems with wood

    If the glue you used is not toxic to the fish then letting it sink and then re-gluing it should work out. If it's not aquarium safe glue that you used the best thing you can do is to immediately throw away the wood and try again with new pieces of wood along with glue that is aquarium safe and...

    Breeding wild caught cardinal tetras

    So for a while now I have wanted to set up a breeding tank for my 15 wild caught cardinal tetras that currently live in a 145 liter freshwater aquarium that mimics the freshwater rainforest rivers of south america . I am looking to grow my skill when it comes to fish keeping so breeding...

    My rainforest river biotope aquarium

    Yeah I wish I was using sand but I have an undergravel filter so switching over is impossible because my fish would die quickly with no filtration .

    My rainforest river biotope aquarium

    I would say this is because I did a ton of research and planning several months before getting my aquarium and I also have aspbergers so fish keeping became one of my special interests besides technology and I would say it has helped me out when it comes to learning about fishkeeping and...

    My rainforest river biotope aquarium

    Appearance wise they look pretty much the same but there are differences in water chemistry requirements when wild caught specimens are compared to captive bred ones because wild caught fish do not tolerate hard water but captive bred fish can get used to it. From what I have seen so far I...
