    Electric blue acara tank mates

    have you ever seen full grown diamond tetras? they are quite stunning in my opinion, reach about 2-2.5 inches and i think you could have a group of them in a 40 gal with your acara... this is what mine all look like: but there seems to be a long fin variant that is quite beautiful! i...

    What is this plant?

    Sad 😔 it's one of my favorite aquatic plants, I hope they don't ban it where I am. But I feel bad for you!

    Clear slime after water changes

    I think I had the same in one of my tanks recently. It was a clear slimy stringy substance the was stuck to (and hanging off of) the aquarium glass. I don't think I would have seen it except for the air bubbles that were present on the goo after the water change. I thought maybe it's...

    Please give your suggestions...easiest (non-livebearer) fish to spawn

    I just got 4 electric blue acara as part of a tank purchase (they came with it)...so good to know they are easy!

    What is this plant?

    The thing is, the cabomba that I purchased (that created these different colors pictured in the original post) is just one plant. I purchased just one clump at my LFS months ago, and it has grown enough for me to put it in multiple tanks now. In some of my tanks it is the green color, in other...

    What is this plant?

    So....since the time that I initially posted this inquiry, I have learned that - this plant is definitely cabomba, I believe it's cabomba carolinia, and it changes color based on your nitrate levels (higher nitrate equals more green, and less nitrate equals more peachy purpleish underleaves)

    Hi

    Well, real plants (I assume) make the fish happier, and they help clean the water by using up the ammonia/nitrite/nitrate (it fertilizes them) - so it keeps your aquarium's water parameters more stable....also they are prettier than plastic. Cheap LED lights make planted tanks a lot easier for...

    I hear ya. Unlikely to be profitable, but if enjoyable, and a little less costly....still worth it :)

    Plant identification

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^closest answer i think. it's definitely not cabomba or hornwort.

    What is this plant?

    It is a type of cabomba (cabomba carolinia? i think), thank you!

    Please give your suggestions...easiest (non-livebearer) fish to spawn

    Why easiest? Because I'm new to breeding/spawning egg scatterers...and it would be nice to know which ones will just do it if they are in a heavily planted species tank. I do plan to try the more challenging ones, and totally agree that they are probably most fulfilling. Also, agree with the...

    Please give your suggestions...easiest (non-livebearer) fish to spawn

    You know, like a tank you can just set up as a species community and they will spawn all on their own without egg collecting contraptions, or cones, or mops, etc. For example, I hear panda corys just breed like bunnies...anyone else?

    Betta sp. Jade ''Green'' questions

    oh, i'm sorry, i thought that is what your post meant by "Betta sp." (sp. for splendens?), but I see this is in the "non-splendens" area -- which i have no experience with! so i will butt out, but good luck! i am interested in setup mentioned by GaryE above...maybe i will try one too!

    Betta sp. Jade ''Green'' questions

    Will they breed in your parameters? Probably, your parameters look okay to me. The bigger question for me is, what will you do with all the babies? Do you have a grow out tank for them? What size is your tank (that I assume the pair will be bred in), and do you have a separate tank to move...
