    Can I turn the pump off?

    I’ve got a completely DIY planted tank going for my bedroom. It’s only a 15l tall tank (I re-siliconed an old reptile enclosure and installed gaps for piping) so I’ve made a homemade filter from some parts I had lying around. It’s got a chamber with some ceramic filter media and an external...

    Should I get another honey gourami?

    It is! Several pieces of driftwood, okoe stone and then vallisnera, crytocoryne and loads of others throughout

    Should I get another honey gourami?

    Hi everyone, I need some advice on my gourami situation. I have a 240L (understocked) community tank with a female Pearl gourami, and a single male honey as his partner passed away last month. The two get along well and don’t fight or compete for territory, but I’m concerned that if I introduce...

    Stocking 60 gallon! Oddball fish advice needed

    Hi. The Fish shops said that Firemouths should be fine, but i should get rid of the tetras and guppies as they'll get eaten. Since the minimum tank size for fire mouths is 30 gallons they thought a 63 gallon would have no problems whatsoever. They also suggested maybe a group of geophagus...

    Stocking 60 gallon! Oddball fish advice needed

    Hi everyone! thanks so much for the replies. After a lot of procrastination, and going back and forth between ideas, I've decided to rehome my Guppies and Glowlight tetras in order to make space for larger fish and ensure they do not get eaten. I'm very sad to see them go but am looking forward...

    Stocking 60 gallon! Oddball fish advice needed

    I will be getting my new 60 gallon Aquarium (230L) in the next couple of months, and i'm speculating on stocking. I'm moving the fish from my 20 gallon community to the 60, as i don't have room for both tanks...so I'm relatively restricted on what I can have. The stocking currently: 2 honey...

    Help with water parameters since switching filter

    I would say your problems are probably coming from the fact you took out the old filter. Undergravels are very competent once running for a little while but when you change the filter you are essentially starting from square one. Nitrate can only be removed by you. Do larger more frequent water...

    75g Tank Stocking

    I'm sorry if this is in the wrong category...i wasn't sure where to put it. I'm looking at setting up a 75gal tank (probably a long) at some point in the future. It will be heavily planted with driftwood and plenty of hiding places. Im looking at stocking it with some of the following...

    Tropical fish for a 20 gallon?

    Oh and the tank is a 20 gallon high, 24” x 16” x 12” I wasn’t told the GH put I’ve now located a more reliable source for my fish and I’m taking a water sample in this week. The other place didn’t really know what they were talking about and even tried to sell me a common pleco as a ‘small...
