    Female betta tankmates

    I have a 30 gallon tank with 12 celestial pearl danios, 12 harlequin rasboras and 6 kuhli loaches, can I add a female betta? I understand that CPD are very shy fish and I don't want to stress them out by the betta being there. I also don't want the betta to be stressed by all the small fish...

    21" deep freshwater lighting

    Hello everyone! A couple years back I bought a 36 gallon 21" deep aquarium and it’s sat empty for a long time. I’m just now looking into getting lights for it and I know that finding good lights for such a deep tank is difficult. My goal is to grow medium-high light plants (though I’d be fine...

    Does anyone know the ability of apistos and rams in the same tank, 30gallon long. Heavily decorated, hardly space to see from one side to the other. Planing to make it more dense, and plenty of caves (from ground to top of water). The tree in the centre is flush side to side, and top to...

    Development of N. Multifasciatus

    How long does it take for the Neolamprologus Multifasciatus fry to reach sexual maturity? I have a trio, 2F 1M, with a batch of fry from each female. Each clutch emerged 2 to 3 weeks apart. The first set of fry look like miniature versions of the adults, and the second are still developing...

    This summer, I'm planning to do a summer day job, and I'm going to see if I can save up for a 30 gallon tank to make a stream or pleco breeding aquarium. Does anybody have a link for a 30 gallon tank on amazon or in Canada?

    Fungus? Ich? Me Overreacting?

    I was taking update shots of my current QT tank, and noticed a couple of the pearl gourami have white on their fins. What do you guys think this is, and what can I do to treat it. I have aquarium salt and Paraguard on hand, and the petstore is open for another hour. The fish are all acting...

    How many fish can my tank hold?

    Hi, this is our first experience being fish owners. We have cycled our 29 gallon tank, and our water was double checked at the pet store. We came home with 6 platies. We’d like to get some Cory Cats and either guppies or neon tetras. Do we have room for 2 more species of fish? If so, how...
