    Poisonous root tabs?

    The correlation between the tabs and the dead snail is unlikely. Most likely what happened is your snail just died randomly. Apple snails are not known for living very long. 1 - 2 years is about all they live

    Ammonia level won’t go down. Please help

    It sounds like your cycle is just getting started. Only way for a tank to cycle is for ammonia and nitrite to rise drastically before it can fall to 0. And this could take weeks. This is why fish-in cycling is frowned upon. Very stressful on the fish

    Why do people do this to fish?

    Are you kidding me. No one is going respond to a betta in a bowl and a goldfish in a 5 gallon tank. How fish are taken care of is up for debate and how one interprets it. They have bigger fish to fry. Pun intended.

    Setting up a betta breeding tank?

    I currently have 15 fish tanks ranging from 5 gallon to 75 gallon and more experience with fish than you might think. I decided to venture into the new activity of breeding fish with the exception of live bearers. Those are easy. I am very well versed in betta breeding but what I do lack, is...

    Setting up a betta breeding tank?

    Okay, first breeding attempt was a failure. The male was way to aggressive when I released her. I had to remove her. Tried again next morning and same aggressiveness. So I ditched the effort and put them both back in their regular tanks Yesterday I decided to try again. I used the same...

    Will this stocking work for a 450 gallon tank ?

    Th I would leave the cichlids and any aggressive fish out and do all tetras (specifically Congo, Candy Cane and Rummy nose Tetras), Rasboras and Hatchetfish for the top level. 25 ottos, 50 Ghost Shrimp, 15 Corydoras and a couple Semi-large growing pleco

    Setting up a betta breeding tank?

    So I didn’t see your response until after I had already started using someone else’s breeding method. So far I introduced the female first, they said acclimate her for about an hour is a small holding tank within the tank, then I added the male. They were instantly attracted to each other. She...

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...

    Air stone / air pump questions

    API sells a GH and KH test kit. As for the dissolved oxygen, keep the water level an inch or 2 below the output so it causes disturbance in the water when it falls into the tank ( like a waterfall) and that will provide more than enough oxygen for several fish.

    How long does API general cure stay good for

    I'll keep a couple boxes on hand for when I need them. Thankfully I haven't ran into anything to bad yet that water changes, melafix or salt couldn't fix. But you never know. Good to have this stuff on hand
