    Rock and a Hard Place

    So I woke up and found one of my Angels between a rock and my tank glass. Is it normal for them to to that during the night to sleep or am I right to have moved him? It is 4am so it would be time for him to sleep, if they sleep that is. I'm going to move the rock farther from the glass. But if I...

    Floating plants

    Can I do floating plants in an aquarium that has a bubbler and over the back filter? I like how they look but I'm worried that they won't be able to survive because of the movement of the water. Are they rather hardy? I have hornwort that is planted in the substrate but I'd rather it float. Any...

    Snail Color

    Hi guys. My brown mystery snail, Ajay, has changed color rather drastically since I got him. He used to be just a dark brown but now he has distinct streaks of dark brown, light brown, and black. Is this normal while they mature or could it be an issue of my water? My water is on the softer...

    Size Comparison

    So I was looking at fish tanks to buy yesterday in a 400 gallon fish tank popped up. I can't afford it and I don't have room for it but I still decided to look at the listing because I was interested. The very last picture was the guy showing how big it is. I definitely understand how big it is...

    Fish Store

    Okay, I might have to find a different fish store to go to. I go to a store in Toledo, OH called The Fish Guys. He has a good stock and fair prices but he doesn't seem to know a ton about fish. I've bought a few fish from him and they all are already bigger than he said their max size is. None...

    What Pleco Species Is This?

    I've had a pleco since August and I have no idea what type he is. I got him from PetSmart but there was no species listed, all it says is Pleco (Large). It said his minimum tank size is 20 gallons but a lot of the PetSmart listings seem to be incorrect. I need to know because I'm not sure if...

    I'm going to get a goldfish soon and I had a couple of questions. 1. What would be a good type to get? I don't want any of the really fancy ones since I know they can be pretty unhealthy. 2. How big of a tank might I need? I only plan on keeping 1 or 2 and I would prefer smaller, 30 gallons or...

    Betta 2.0

    I made a post a couple weeks ago about my girlfriend's betta fish not doing too well. Well the day has finally come, Arthur is dead. I have to assume it's just that he was a PetSmart fish who is in one of those little cups. Water is how it should be and the same as my other tanks. This post...

    Betta Acting Strange

    My girlfriend just got a little 5 gallon tank and a betta. It is under planted I know but she wants to put a cave in first before more plants. The issue I'm having is how it is acting. It is either swimming on the bottom or top but not between at all. Is this normal? He was just introduced...

    Unique Fish

    What is the most unique fish everybody has? I'll start I don't have a unique individual but what I think is a unique group. I have a group of Cory Cats in my 45g that includes Julii, Emerald, Albino, and Pepper with plans for some pygmy in the future.

    What shrimp could I get that my Angel won't eat? I had ghost shrimp before and they all got ate within 3 days. I did a little reading and it said they are just too small to keep with Angels.

    New Tank

    I just got this new 45 gallon tank set up. It uses live plants, rocks, driftwood, and sand. I tried setting up a couple of distinct areas. Heavily planted on the right, moderate/light planting with driftwood and rocks in the center, and a lot of rocks on the left. This took a a few hours but I'm...

    So I am setting up a new tank and I was just wondering if rocks are able to touch the sides of the tank or if that might cause issues down the line.
