    Add More? Or Nahh?...

    I have a 5 gallon tank that currently has 2 crabs in it with no fish. I've read some things that say 1 crab is plenty for a 5 gallon tank and others that say it easily fits 6. I think 6 is way too many for a tank that size. I want to add 1 or 2 more but do you think that'll be too many for the...

    Thinking About A Possible Brackish Tank-I Have A Few Questions On How

    I have a lot of experience with saltwater and freshwater tanks but I never had a brackish. I'm a little confused on how to get one started. Does it need live rock? What should the specific gravity be? What type of substrate should I use? Is it possible to do a nano tank?

    Can I Use Less Water Conditioner For My Water Changes?

    Recently I tested my relatively new 29g brackish aquarium's water, and it turns out my nitrites and nitrates are both very high.   My tank's water is reading as: 7.8 PH, about 180 KH, 0 chlorine, Nitrites I think around 7 or 8, the color is brighter than my chart so it may be higher, and about...

    Hi People

    Hi,   Just joined the forum and thought I would say hi to everyone.   I'm just setting up a small tank and thought I would try a brackish tank with Mollies (Peocilia latipinna or P. sphenops). Looking for advice and other peoples experiences.   K.

    Halfbeak Mouth Fungus

    I have a 55 Gallon Brackish with 6  young Celebes Halfbeaks, 3 young Scats, a green spotted puffer and a Knight goby.  They used to be in two tanks, but a couple of months ago, one sprung a leak and I had to combine them.  I guess because they were suddenly all together it stressed the halfbeaks...

    Alright.. What Else Can I Put In This Tank? F8 + Bumblebee Goby

    My flounder has been missing for a very long time and I have a very strong feeling he was slowly poisoned by nitrite during cycling.  =(  If possible, I'd like to put something else in my tank to "replace" him.   I currently have a 10gal in the very early stages of brackish transition.  It's...

    Am Being Told I Need To Transition To Brackish, Have Some Qs..

    I have a 10gal freshwater tank that is still cycling with a very young, hogchoker flounder.  I believe I am about a week into my cycle since the last full-water change (I was having some issues).  I am of the understanding that, even though he may have started out in freshwater, I will need to...
