    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.

    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...

I'm planning on getting a 35 Gallon for...

    Sparkling Gourami And Ember Tetra Compatibility

    Any thoughts on 1m, 3f sparkling gouramis and 12 ember tetras in a 20gallon tank?  Would the embers nip the gouramis? Would the gouramis be territorial (and the embers take any of the brunt).     If this would work, would there be space for a clean up crew? What would you recommend?   This is...
