    Fungus on Driftwood

    Hey y'all! I know that most of the time, growth on the wood isn't harmful, but I want to be safe than sorry. So, I would love it if y'all would just confirm it isn't toxic or something. It's maple wood from a dead branch that fell from my tree, and I boiled for only a few hours just to kinda...

    Discolored sand

    Hello! I wasn't sure where to put this question, so mods, feel free to move it to a better place. I just removed some wood from my tank in order to scrub off some excess algae and fungus stuff. But when removed, I see that anywhere that the wood was in contact with the sand, the sand is now a...

    Questions about Water Changers

    Okay, so, since I started fish keeping, I've had to use 5 gallon buckets. I'm at the point where just thinking about them make me tired. It is exhausting as I am sure y'all must know, to carry them around the house full of water. So I would love to invest in a water changer. But I have a big...

    Posts moved from "I'm done" thread

    The posts in this thread have been moved from this thread as they are very off topic! I had no idea we had so many youth fish keepers here!

    Does the Fish Fit?

    Hey y'all! So, as might be seen on my journal thread, I have a 29 gallon I need to stock. Since I have so many questions about some fish that interest me, I thought it would be simpler to start a new thread focused on the fish instead of the tank's progress. Scaped with pool filter sand and itty...

    Different wood items

    Not completely sure if this is the right spot for this thread, but decided it would do. Now, when I first started out into the fish keeping hobby, I had no idea you could put things like driftwood, alder cones and indian almond leaves into your tank! I really love them now, but would like to...

    ppm to dGh?

    Hello! So, my test strips read in ppm, but all the websites I look at when l do research on fish give the GH and KH in the dGH and dKH form. Can anyone advise on how to swap one on to the other? Hope that made sense, because I kinda questioned my wording choices. Thanks!

    Crypts Falling Apart

    Hey everyone! So, even though I have planted tanks, my knowledge is rather limited when it comes to plant care. I just changed my substrate, and my crypts just aren't adjusting well. Before, they were in a really fine sand, and now the substrate is a slightly coarser pool sand. So I don't see...

    Customizing my Profile?

    Hi! I've noticed that most everyone has some very fun title! Mine says "new member" which is true, but I didn't know how to change it? Also, many members have interesting quotes or "signatures" at the bottom of every post. How do you do it? I tried to figure it out, but failed. A little help?

    Live Food?

    Hi all, I've always fed basic flakes and pellets to my fish, but I would like to up my game by getting into the live foods. Particularly live blood worms and daphnia. There's always been talk about feeding live food to our aquatic friends, but never any conversations about how to do it. I just...

    Aspirations for a 29gal tall.

    Hello, as I have stated in previous posts, I have a 29 gallon tall (30x12x18''). It was given to me buy someone downsizing, and I was very new to the fish keeping hobby at the time, so I didn't really get to customize it to my own tastes. Now though, with a bit more experience after 2 years...

    Do they need extra care?

    Hi! I'm a betta lover but have never owned non-splendens bettas. I am not looking at getting any at the time, just wanted to cover some information for the future (because I would definitely love to own them one day). 1. So, my big first question is: Where do you buy these "wild type" bettas...

    Shrimp Essentials

    Hello! I have a 10 gallon tank that I would love to put some cherry (or similar) shrimp into. I tried doing my research, and yet my first try at 10 shrimp failed. I have Indian almond leaves and some alder cones on hand that I can put into the tank, and tank has some christmas moss in it. I...

    The Forum requested that I introduce myself as a new member, so I will gladly comply. I am fairly new to the wonderful hobby of fish keeping, and have kept them for 2, almost 3 years. My favorite fish is definitely the betta, for they are full of personality, and no two are the same. By...
