    Do colour morphs affect bristlenose lifespan?

    I don’t have that data, but in parrots (which I raise) the longer a mutation has been around the less the effects of the line breeding because that is so many more generations in the past and the genes have been widely dispersed through the healthy unrelated breeding population. Sent from my...

    Cory cats advise

    I don’t actually know; they were just labeled Cory cats... they look albino? I’m fairly new to the hobby. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Should livebears be stocked with both sexes?

    I keep only male guppies and only female mollies and swordtails. I get the occasional pregnancy since mollies can have multiple pregnancies from previous mating but they pretty much eat the babies. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Help!

    Why not just put them in a 50gal? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Mollies

    Interesting that you think it’s such a good idea but aren’t willing to say what it actually is... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hold up, did you say you keep 4 male bettas together in a 10 gallon tank? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Overstocking? Tank size vs. filtration capacity

    My thought now is to return it rehome the swordtail, abs set up my currently empty 20 gallon for the molly and two friends. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Overstocking? Tank size vs. filtration capacity

    Yeah, the only plastic inside the tank are parts specifically made to go inside tanks such as the filters, heater pieces, etc :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Overstocking? Tank size vs. filtration capacity

    Thanks! My Rhinos are training for the olympics! Jk, they are stone rhinos and have been in fish tanks for the last 5 years with no ill effects. To be more specific, no dead fish. However I’m now learning a lot lore about the chemistry of my water and if they seem to be causing trouble I will...

    Overstocking? Tank size vs. filtration capacity

    I tried that first :( no idea why it’s down or for how long. When I ran this tank through that system it said I had lots of extra filtration but that was before I wondered about adding. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Overstocking? Tank size vs. filtration capacity

    It’s a Bristlenose pleco which I was told will only get 4-5” max. The loaches are Kuhli loaches which I was told max out at about 3-4” but that a group of 4 can do great in a 10 gallon with low bioload tank mates. The guppies are all males which don’t get as big as the females. As for mollies...

    Overstocking? Tank size vs. filtration capacity

    Hi, I’m working on the hardness and Ph etc at the moment with our local petsmart, since when I took my water in to petco they just said “it’s fine” with no additional details. I just did a water change and I was told to wait 48 hours before testing again. All the guppies are male, the molly is...

    Overstocking? Tank size vs. filtration capacity

    How important is tank size vs filtration capacity when it comes to stocking? I’ve had tanks for years but I’ve always sort of guessed at stocking based on the old “one gallon per inch” rule. I know it’s not a very good rule but honestly I don’t have the experience to do anything more specific...
