    Red-Eared Slider/Small Terrapin Care

    From the above given link I read that turtles less than 4" can't be sold. From what I saw on the Facebook page of the shop I intend to get the turtle from, they're very tiny, probably just 3 inches... :| What to do in such a situation where animal rights aren't well established in your area?

    Red-Eared Slider/Small Terrapin Care

    Thank you so so much for this link! It is so clear and detailed. Brilliant work by this person. Studying all the information provided here. :lol: Thank you for all this. Good to hear your turtle's well ^_^ I currently have a 15g tank, but it's rather longitudinal since it's a fish tank. Is...

    Red-Eared Slider/Small Terrapin Care

    :lol:That's lovely! So when I kept fish, I learned that aquariums shouldn't be placed in sunlight because some bacteria grow in the water that aren't healthy for the fish. That doesn't apply on turtles?

    Red-Eared Slider/Small Terrapin Care

    I plan on getting a red-eared slider or some similar terrapin, so wanted to do some research before that. I've kept fish (comet & fancy goldfish, platys and tiger barbs) so have quite some experience there. I used to have a mud turtle as well, but it was quite a while back so a little rusty...

    Black Algae

    I recently switched my pale yellow bulb to a brighter white one since the previous one stopped working. I've noticed that the white gravel is turning black and there's black algae like growth on the tank wall. I think it's because of the light so I intend to change it back to the yellow one. Now...

    What fish is this?

    Woah okay had no idea about the aquarium fish diseases. I'll try to find where she was brought from and until then will feed the variety you've told me.

    Is This For Real? Fish Coming Back To Life...

    Did that with a platy once and it did "come back to life", but unfortunately wasn't able to survive for long.

    What fish is this?

    I do soak the pellets, but they still don't really sink.. I've soaked them for even ten minutes or more. They float on the top unless I press them- then they sink. Does this mean the pellets I have are low quality? Thank you for the info on her feed. I'll try checking out some fishing equipment...

    Peeling backdrop

    So I removed the wallpaper, but there are these glue spots. Is this glue harmful for the tank water or my fish (in case they nibble on them)?

    Peeling backdrop

    Hey, I don't know if it's an emergency or not, but my aquarium's wallpaper's peeling. I never noticed it even though I try to keep a close eye on all that's going on in the aquarium. What's worrisome is that there's space between the sheet and the glass wall of the aquarium and my platy...

    What fish is this?

    Thank you for the reply. How many times a day should I feed it? This photo was just before I fed it, it looked rounder after that. I feed the platy once a day. Is that enough by the way? The platy aren't skinny at all and are active throughout the day. They got swim bladder problems when I fed...

    What fish is this?

    So, recently somebody brought this little dude/dudette and gifted it to us. I have no idea what breed it is, and I think the person who brought it has no idea either (I think they caught it from some river, but I'm not sure). It's super shy and for some weeks I thought it was a bottom-feeder...

    How to introduce new platy

    So I got a new mickey mouse platy and I want to add it to my redwag platy aquarium. > That's all right, yes? They are platy after all, so the type shouldn't matter yeah? I had to get one in an emergency for an event, so I bought it from a nearby store. The living conditions of the fish there...
