    Setting up a betta breeding tank?

    So I'm setting up a new betta breeding tank and have everything set up, seasoned driftwood, plants, heater, almond leaves and a seasoned filter. Well it's actually a pre-filter but it's very large and has been in there a few months and I converted it into a regular sponge filter and I cleaned...

    How do I gravel clean when the tank is close to the floor?

    I modified a 10 Gallon tank stand to hold 2 10 gallon tanks instead of one. The new tank only sits off the ground about 4 inches. I could take the stand apart drill new holes and move the floor of the stand up a few more inches but I don’t want to do all that. So the question is, can I clean it...

    How long does API general cure stay good for

    I bought a box of API General Cure today and noticed to expire date is 11/2023. I would have thought it would last longer than 2 years if unopened. Is it a ploy by the retailer to get you to buy it more often or does it actually degrade that quick. What do you think? I like to stock up on stuff

    New H.O.B Filter

    Tank is a 55g and has been cycled and running great for 6 months. How long do I run my old hob with my new H.O.B until it's colonized. I'm assuming around a month. Can I kick start it by adding some media directly on the filter? What say you!

    Instant Cycling Betta Tank

    The other day my dad came home with 3 gallon cube tank w/ a betta and 2 small whisker shrimp. He asked me to set it up for him. I reminded him that the tank should have been cycled before buying a fish. So what I did is take a piece of extra sponge I keep in my tank (for this exact purpose) and...

    Outdoor aquarium fish?

    I would like to start a fish tank outside on the lanai. I live in southern florida. What type of fish would this be possible with? I could get a heater to help in the winter time but what would i do about the heat of the summer. I don't have a $1,000 for a chiller either. Any thoughts?

    Is this good filtration

    Is this good enough filtration for my tank? I took out the thin stock throw away filter and replaced it with this Fluval foam. My filter is an AQUA-Tech 10-20. 10 gallon tank. 6 Ember Tetras, 5 green kubotai rasboras, 2 corries and 3 hatchet fish. I do water changes every 5-7 days. Any suggestions?

    Harlequin Rasbora

    My Rasboras were doing a little dance in my nano tank. They would be side by side pointed in opposite directions, even touching bodies they were so close. We're they spawning?

    Treating a very sick fish

    This cory was a rescue from a very neglected tank. He was totally on the verge of death. If a strong current of water came and knocked him on his side, he would lay there and look dead for a minute because he was to weak to move, I swore he was dead looking at him but he would eventually right...

    10g Planted Tank

    5 Rasboras, 5 Neons, 4 Ember Tetras, 2 Corys (1 Panda and 1 albino), 3 hatchet fish and a couple mystery snails. I know it's a bit overcrowded but I really love the Hatchet fish and had to get 3 when I saw them. I'll just have to make sure nitrate levels don't spike

    Fish dead after water change

    I have a 29 gallon tank that has been cycled for 2 months and have had no problems. I have been doing 25% water changes every week for the last 2 months since I added fish and have had no problems. Today I decided to do a 50% change due to high nitrates. The water temperature was exactly...

Tank has 5 neons, 4 ember tetras, 5 Rasboras, and 7 congo tetras ( probably going to transfer them to my 55 gallon I'm setting up) and 2 gold mystery snails. Should I use any root tabs on root bearing plants, already using liquid fertilizer. Pease feel...
