    Random Java Fern Growing In Gravel?

    I have a 40 gallon tank with 2 java fern in them right now! 1 has been in for about 2 months, and the other for 2-3 weeks.

    Help With Neon Tetras...

    So my 40 gallon has been established for about 3 months and I have had no problems. (knock on wood). I have 5 neon tetras in there, who as of a few days ago have been acting completely normal. However, all of a sudden, its like they all got into a big argument and split up. Really weird behavior...

    Questions About A Pregnant Platy

    I read that they should only be in there for a most of 48 hours. So maybe leave her in there for that long, and if there are still no fry, move her back into the main tank and see what happens. She sounds like she is close, but every fish is different so you can never tell.

    Bigger The Fish, The More Fry?

    Newbie Driftwood Mistake..

    Try boiling the wood for a few hours. Get the biggest pot you have, and boil some water. Submerge as much of the wood as you can, (rotate it to get both sides of the driftwood) and change the water every 15- 20 minutes. Do this for 2 hours, and soak it over night, it should be pretty good. That...
