    DIY Light

    My sister has an old lamp that she doesn't want anymore, and I was thinking maybe I could turn it into a lamp for my 5 gal or 10 gal bowl aquarium. I don't really know if I would be able to rewire this to hold a bulb though. I'm not really familiar with how that kind of stuff works. And if it is...

    Chunk of Fish

    I planned on getting more, however, after this incident I dont know. And he is already turning a tinge yellow.... I worry that is a sign of infection already. And what should I do with him? I have no home for him to be in while he heals.

    Chunk of Fish

    I recently added an adult anglefish to my 55 with my other 3 adults. I also have a pictus and pleco in there. Sadly, I woke up today to find a dime sized chunck missing out of my pictus. He has flesh and skin missing, but no organs exposed or gone. He gets scared when I come near, so I cant get...

    Betta likes strong flow?

    It's not. That's why I moved the filter over to the side instead of having it in the middle of the tank.

    Just out of curiosity, is it bad if the nest is disturbed.. I think it has been a couple times.

    I'm Stupid and the Pictus Suffered

    That's the problem. Before I cut the net, he was being very calm, so I tried. But it was not coming off and I was pulling as hard as I felt comfortable pulling on a little fish.

    I'm Stupid and the Pictus Suffered

    Kind of? I mean, he is in a brand new tank. He was exploring and swimming around, and I moved his cave from the previous tank in there in case he wanted to hide, but he seems to like laying next to the sponge filter better..

    Betta likes strong flow?

    I've moved my betta to a 20 gal tank. The filter gives a really strong flow so I moved it to one side of the tank so the other side would be pretty low flow. But he keeps swimming over to the filter side of the tank! And even more, directly under the filter! Is this normal for a betta? Is he...

    I'm Stupid and the Pictus Suffered

    My beloved pictus was changed tanks today. He was in a 20 gal before and now he is in a 55 gal. The problem is I was switching the fish using a net to put them in a cup to put in the water and I was adding just a little bit of the new water in every 5 min. Well, the net got stuck to one of his...

    To plant or not to plant? That is the question

    Thanks for that! I hadn't done much research yet, but I guess maybe their own seperate tank down the road... would a 20 gal long work do you think?

    To plant or not to plant? That is the question

The substrate is sand in the foreground and black gravel in the back.The tank will have 4 pictus, a couple snails of different variety, angels (number to be decided), and most...

    Popeye or Paranoid?

    I don't think his eyes have stick out like this before... Even just a couple days ago they weren't this big. I'll test the water parameters, but I just did a water change a couple days ago as well.

    Popeye or Paranoid?

    He also seems to have a white ring around his eye when he moves them... I am not sure if that's supposed to be there either.

    Popeye or Paranoid?

    Here is some pics below of my betta,is it just me or are his eyes sticking out abnormally? I could very possibly be paranoid, but I don't think his eyes were like that before. Am I catching it early?
