    Pest Snails in a tank containing Red Shrimp

    That's tricky. I'd just feed less food, or less often. That's usually why snails overpopulate aquariums. A good colony of snails (pest snails or not) are really beneficial for the tank and have lots of benefits like eating algae, breaking down debris further for the filter to pickup, etc. But...

    Newbie with a Jewel 125

    you can lower the flow by adding more fine filter media like filter floss. The uv should kill algae, but even so, if you're gonna aquascape it then an internal filter will work great as long as you got a lot of plants. but you've already invested in an external which is great! Maybe try adding...

    Am I missing something?

    It could also be high in meat and protein in the form that's safe for our veggie-based fish, because feeding like bloodworms to cichlids can bloat them, maybe it's a nutritious food for the low-protein-based fish, still giving them their essentials. But I've never used this food before, so I...

    Mixing gouramis

    I've kept honey and pearl gouramis together before, they worked well! I wouldn't recommend Pearls and Sparkling, as the Pearl Gouramis might eventually eat them as they've got big size differences. Sparkling and Honeys might also do well too. It's a 50/50 situation, you'll have to try the combos...

    What is this?

    This is my Golden Wonder Killifish. He has some red marks on his body but look like parasites or infections. Does anyone know what exactly is on the fish? Cheers!

    DIY Co2

    Yesterday I setup a co2 system (diy) and a diy co2 diffuser. I used the brown sugar and yeast version. It's been running for a couple hours now and it's stopped with the bubbles. Do anyone know how long this method works for or if there's a way to make it last longer? Thank you! Here's the...

    Is This Swim Bladder Disease?

    Hi all! I just got home from holidays, and my Emperor Tetra is swimming erratically. It has an unbalanced buoyancy and is struggling to swim upright. That is usually the sign of Swim Bladder Disease, but it's also bloated. I checked for pine coning and it doesn't have any scales sticking out. If...

    What Is This Algae?

    I just re-set it up a week and a half a go, so the driftwood and the sponge filter is clean. I haven't done a water change yet, but will do! :)

    What Is This Algae?

    Should I then stop putting liquid fertilisers in? Or reduce the amount I put in? Thanks Colin! You're the best bro!

    Small tank ideas?

    Saltwater would be very hard in that tank, as its small size makes it hard to get to some places to clean, and with all the equipment you'd need, would make the tank like a 2 gallon. Maybe a couple shrimp and snails, and maybe some child Rasboras, but I reckon it's otherwise too small. If you...

    Tips for making your aquarium look nice and pop out?

    I reckon maybe no rainbow gravel and get a completely dark substrate? But might not be worth the hassle of replacing the gravel. Looks good, though! I reckon the driftwood you've got in there makes a difference. 👍

    What Is This Algae?

    Hey all! How's it going? I have this stringy algae in my cycling tank that is growing amongst my floating wisteria and wrapping around my driftwood, but looks like it's mainly just at the surface. I know it's part of the cycle, but I'm not sure what type of algae it is and how I can get rid of...
