    Does this look like a healthy tank?

    Hi! This is my first fish tank, it’s a heavily planted 7 gallon, and for stocking I have some snails, 2 ghost shrimp, and 10 phoenix and strawberry Rasbora. I feed them everyday a little pinch of fish flakes, and about 1-2 times a week I give them brine shrimp. I have had this tank setup for...

    Deciding on the right puffer

    Hi I’m researching the best puffer to put in my 10 gallon tank. Because I don’t really want to upgrade the tank(I have no space at home😢) it’s either a couple pea puffers or a figure 8 puffer. But I haven’t seen anyone have one in a 10 gal so I don’t know if it would be ok. It has plants and has...

    Syphon recommendations?

    Everyone is saying I need to give my tank a water change, but I have no idea what syphon to use. The main thing is putting fresh water back in, my tank is 128cm off the floor, and far away from any tap. Using a jug for 200l is definitely a full body work out, and is very time consuming. I...

    Advice on eye!

    I changed the substrate yesterday to sand to help keep my Cory’s safe and when I returned them back from the holding tank that had their tank water in it, one of my baby Cory’s eye looks really bad.

    Needing Zebra Danios Breeding Advice

    I'm planning on breeding some zebra danios, and I have found that most resources recommend putting a large clump of java moss (or really any free floating plant) in the breeding tank. Do I have to put the java moss in, or will they still breed without it? Are there any alternatives? Any help...

    Why do my fish keep dying

    Hi, I seem to be having an issue with my tank and so far every fish I’ve got has died after a few weeks. I have cycled the tank, checked all levels are ‘good’ and the only issue I can think of is that our water is hard with a PH of 8. I have had two bettas (not at the same time) but after...

    70 Litre (18 Gallon) Tank Restart

    Yesterday, I came to the decision to swap my tank from cold water to tropical. I sold my WCMM and Corydoras, and now have an 18 Gallon tank empty and ready for a fresh start. I done a 95% water change and did not wash the substrate so as not to have to cycle again, though I suspect I may go...

    I had a java fern in my tank for approximately five days when it started developing little offshoots. Worried about what they were as I got so many answers online, I separated it and put it into a cup of the same aquarium water and Fluorite substrate, with some Osmocote Plus, and under a grow...
