    Ideas on Fish Home

    Hey ya'll. I am moving and cannot house or set up a tank that will be good for my current fish. Any ideas on what you all do if you need to give away or find another home for your fish? I know I could give them to my LFS, but wondering what other options are there. I'm in the Washington State...

    75 Gallon Stocking Ideas

    Really good options. The only issue I have with a few of them is that I've done a planted tank and it drove me nuts with the trimming and dosing. I have two kids and need a low maintenance tank. Plus I bought a home which now adds to my plate maintenance wise.

    75 Gallon Stocking Ideas

    ph 7, no idea on the hardness. tank is not cycled, but I'm a patient man and can gradually add fish until it's full of fish. I plan on either a bare bottom tank OR sand substrate.

    75 Gallon Stocking Ideas

    Hey friends. I'm looking to restart my 75-gallon tank with a few criteria for fish stocking options: -Fish should be hardy -Peaceful/community -Don't nip fins -Don't jump out of tanks (I not have a cover nor want one) Thanks, everyone!

    So, now that I have an empty tank do I need to clean it, break it down completely. I have a small fish in my big tank that needs more time to grow out since. Suggestions, advice?

    Okay, bad news. I woke up and found Jasmine dead. She was doing so well, but something happened at night. We did a goodbye ceremony for her and the kids are a bit sad right now.

    Not at all. She was really bad and isn't out of the woods yet. Thanks for your help!

    Peacocks or Mbuna

    Great looking tank! I don't have experience with them, but I was very close to getting cichlids, but they are too aggressive for my wife and it would stress her out too much. Happy wife, happy life! Good luck with your exciting decision.

    I want to thank everyone for being so supportive and awesome. Jasmine, our female betta is doing better. She's swimming around more and approaching me when I walk up to her. Kids are happy to see her swimming around the tank. She'll take a break every now and then to rest, but she's active and...

    No. I would have added that info. Usually when I post something I try to include as much info as possible.

    Okay, good news and bad news. She's moving around now and because of that I can see her bottom fins and tail fin is ragged and eroded more than yesterday.

    No, there's only one nerite snail in there and he's happy and moving around. My first test today was .25ppm, my second test after the 60% WC came to .25ppm again. Maybe I did read it wrong the first time. Yellow and light green look pretty similar which I hate about these tests!

    But honestly, it's not eggs. What concerned me to even start this post is that her scales seemed to be sticking out and she stopped eating and being active, just sitting at the bottom of the tank.

    I can't go outside, I'm in an apartment with no balcony so I have to hold it near natural light near a window. LOL.

    There's a nerite snail. I can try the meds, but I'd rather see what she has before I give her something that isn't needed.

    My suspicion is that she tore those fins, but I will keep an eye on them. She does seems to be growing her fins back from the erosion.
