    Ammonia 1ppm, are my fish safe for now???

    So update to my bad losses after the Texas snowstorm. My 29 fish were in a 20 gal for emergency for the last 4 days (were in a 10 gal for 3 days prior) The water just came on allowing me to set up the tank. I had the filter from the 65 running on the 20 gal while they were in there to get the...

    Are these Corydora eggs fertile? *VIDEO OF SPAWNING!!*

    I am a very proud fish mom today! My corydoras have been spawning FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME EVER all day today!!!!! I've been able to save 11 of the eggs so far, but most burst when I tried to get them. I'm not sure if it's because I'm inexperienced but I tried to be gentle. I read that fertlizied...

    New Stocking List vs Old! Need Opinions- Improvement?

    So yall who have bared with me since my horrible beginning, I've had around 40 lovely little creatures in a 32.5 and 20, which was massively overstocked! I vowed that when I moved I would get a larger tank to better disperse the fish to live comfortably, and less crowded! Well I moved into my...

    Help!! Synodontis Nigrita or Ocellifer?

    Hey y'all! I was under the impression that my two fish, Shade and Midnight, were Upside Down Catfish (Synodontis Nigriventis) as they were SOLD AS SUCH, WITH MY NIGRIVENTIS. Looking further into it, they do not match the coloration or shape, so I went sleuthing. As far as I can see, I believe...

    **Need Opinions!** Rescuing a special needs loach?

    Hey y'all, I really need y'alls opinions because this has been tearing me up all day. I went to my LFS to get food and I looked in the Dojo Loach tank (like I always do XD) They were all sold except for this small golden dojo with a pretty severely disformed spine. My heart broke for this little...

    Betta- Before and After a loving home!

    Saw a ton of threads on posting progress photos of your fish, generally their change with colors and vibrancy, and I figured Honey is a fantastic example of that! Honey isn't a fancy betta, no flowy fins, the "wild" type of betta splendens. I got her on the rack of "less desirable" bettas next...

    Dojo Loach- Head bump?

    Hey y'all! This morning during feeding I noticed that one of my juvenile Gold Dojo Loaches, Catnip, has a small bump on the top of her head, back near where the gills meet the body. It's not a cut or open wound, just a small bump. She's acting completely normal, eating and swimming around to her...

    Good Tropical Algae Eaters?

    Hey y'all! I've been looking around the internet for a few hours and am getting a LOT of differing information. I'm returning my two lovely Hillstream Loaches because they are cold water fish when I heard (dumbly, from a YouTube Channel.) that they were able to thrive in tropical temperatures...
