    Tank Not Level?

    Hi guys! I'm not quite sure what's going on, but I believe my tank isn't level. It's sitting on a floating desk that I've been informed should support well over the weight a 10 gallon would reach. I've sat on it myself and didn't hear or feel any sort of creaking, popping, groaning, or...

    BN success

    I threw a pair of Bn plecos in a 10g for breeding purposes, and it was very surprising to me that the breeding was successful, the male would always harass and chase the female (once I woke up wither her out of the tank) the male did not think his hide was sutible for young, he simply kept...

    Java moss problem

    isn't this stuff supposed to grow like nuisance algae? Not for me. I got my java moss when it was a lush green color at petco. I placed it in a Lower light area, parallel to my ozelot sword which obstructs a good majority of light. It's not like it's pitch black, just there isn't too much light...

    Starter Tank Kit: 10 Gallon Recommendations

    Hi, everyone! I'm relatively new to the fish community. After a fairly sad experience, due to inexperience and overstocking (and unexpected breeding, which led to further overstocking), I've decided that if I really would like to have fish in my life, I need to make sure they're being cared for...

    New Tank Mate(S)?

    As I type this one of my beloved guppies is dying. I bought the poor guy and an adult and he was in pretty rough shape. I'm surprised he made it 8 months in my tank.   My plan right now is to fill his place with another male guppy, but I was wondering if there would be any other good tank mates...

    Enough Food For My Cherry Shrimp?

    I have six red cherry shrimp that i just got a couple of days ago in a 10 gal strictly for the shrimp.  i have a fist sized clump of java moss in there and i was just wondering if that and some algae with some crushed up fish flakes every so often was enough or whether i should be feeding them...
