    I need general advice!

    Hello! I am completely new to fishkeeping. I mean, I had a goldfish fish when I was 5 that my father took care of but that is it. I am most likely going to buy a 16.5-gallon nano tank, that I will put saltwater fish in. I have read lots about fish in the last few weeks so I do understand the...

    Crab [not super urgent]

    Hi, Yesterday I purchased a crab from a good aquatics shop (Sweet Knowle Aquatics) and they told me that this crab would be quite a peaceful community creature. So I got it acclimatized into my tank and out it in. I noticed that it was quite confident and would eat food really quickly - unlike...

    african butterfly fish tankmates?

    I have read about the abf, and was wondering what fish could go with them. I have a 36 gallon tank, and I already have a algae eater. Would Congo tetras work? If not, would rainbowfish? Also, I live in Alberta, and I can't find a store that sells abf. Would I be able to get the store to order...

    Should I seperate my Tyretrack Eels??

    I had bought two of them from a tropical fish store who kept all of the young eels together in one tank, and thus thought it was fine to keep multiple together - They even told me it was fine to keep them in a 10 Gallon at their size - Which it is /not/. I'm planning on getting a 35 Gallon for...

    Good non-schooling fish compatible with Cory Cats

    Hello all. I have a 20 gallon tank with 5 Corydoras Catfish. I wanted to get a middle to high swimming fish in the tank to add variety. Since I already have 5 fish, I didn't want to add too many new fish to prevent overstocking. But many fish I have researched are schooling fish and prefer to be...
