    Platy fry control

    Ok, what genders for the angels? I’ve been keeping fish for a few years now but don’t have any experience with angels. Im not opposed to them breeding as I doubt any eggs with survive with my snail population. It’s ironic because I’m not opposed to platy fry at all, I’m raising about 60 of...

    Platy fry control

    Hello I currently have a 55 gallon tank with 3 females and 1 male platy. Along with a male beta, 10 cories, 8 Pygmy cories, 8 ottos and a BN Pleco. Recently I’ve noticed more platy fry surviving. It's fine at the moment as I wanted a few more than just the 4, but I don’t want an...

    Amazon sword melting

    This is the tank currently, the dwarf water lettuce is being pushed around by the internal filter on the right, but probably covers a little over half of the water surface. (Took out half over the weekend)

    Amazon sword melting

    I’ll stop the co2 booster and switch to these fertilizers. I’ll set the time to be on 7 hours, starting around midday. I haven’t had a big problem with these algae recently, I do have some green algae growing on the rocks, but I don’t mind it. It looks natural, and I have Siamese algae eaters...

    Amazon sword melting

    Using api liquid fertilizer weekly, and co2 booster daily (both as bottle instructs) and api root tabs a while back, placed two tabs at the base of the sword and more around the tank near the other swords and plants. For lighting, I have a 48” hyger led light I bought on Amazon, the timer is...

    Amazon sword melting

    Hello, I have a 55 gallon Congo tetra tank which has many plants. My amazon sword does ok, and puts out new leaves all the time but the leaves on the outside melt down. Theyre growing faster than they are melting but I have other big plants like a red melon sword and a red flame sword that grow...

    55 gal tank

    I understand what you mean about species compatibility, the only think I have problems with is numbers. I hear both sides of the 1 inch of fish per gallon and haven’t really noticed and differences in my other tanks that go both ways and do fine. My only problem with figuring out stocking is...

    55 gal tank

    Thank you for the website, I haven’t seen it and will look at it. I’ll look at neons and other fish and decide what and how many. And the way I read this is only one other species of shoaling fish( so Congos and neons for mid level fish) I have some water sprite in another tank so I’ll...

    55 gal tank

    Where would you suggest getting the fish, none of the stores near me sell Congo and none of the websites I’ve looked at sell females. I can order a bunch of fry but won’t know what to do with the extras. It is a 4ft tank, 48’L x 12.5’W x 21.5H. I have some neons that I would like to move out...

    Stocking idea for 40-55 gallon.

    Would German blue rams be a good fit?

    Stocking idea for 40-55 gallon.

    Alright, I think I’ll go with the Congo’s and make a nice community tank. I like the idea of that and having a bunch of movement and activity

    So just a community tank with a few different species of schooling fish?
