    Best plants for a beginner learning the ropes.

    I find Java fern to be fairly hardy, and gives quite an impact to a tank. Many of the crypt species also. If you added some anubius that would give you the basis for a very nice aquascape with some fairly hardy plants?

    Which species of Killi are these?

    I'd guess Fundulopanchax gardneri?

    Dwarf puffer- is my tank suitable?

    Snails are a great food - but I don't think Pea Puffers teeth continually grow in the same way most others do.

    Dwarf puffer- is my tank suitable?

    I'm in the "They prefer larger groups" camp - I started with 3 and it was fine and all, but when I added some more they just because so much more active.

    New light advice

    You could try some floating plants first to save you buying a new light maybe? Something like frogbit or dwarf water lettuce? If you can retrofit an LED light I really like these -

    Flowerhorn - Gill curl?

    Hi, 'Humphrey' has developed a gill issue - it was there from the day I got him but becoming more prominent.

    Indentifying and fighting algae

    It looks like you have some BBA there (black beard algae) - as it is only a little you can spot treat with some hydrogen peroxide. I knows others have some success with Seachem Excel but it has never actually worked for me. I'm fighting a massive outbreak at the moment in one of my tanks and...

    Hello everyone!

    Hi all - If my better half is to be believed I have too many fish tanks and too many fish - so this seemed like the perfect place to talk to more reasonable people!! I've often used this forum as a resource when researching things so though it was about time I joined! I have a few 'display'...
