    Melafix Hoax?

    Hello everyone! (wow, I'm back? :oops:) After (almost) finishing the first semester of year 2 in my aquaculture studies at Dalhousie, I've found I've learned more about finfish and shellfish than I've bargained for, and a notable subject has crossed my path while caring for my own fish that I...

    Help, Algae eating fish needed

    Hey, I have a 56 litre tank but I can’t seem to find any algea eaters that’ll be okay with the fish I have in my tank. I have 3 Electric Blue Rams, One Dwarf Gourami, and 5 Serpae Tetras. I had otos before but they keep dying. The tank doesn’t produce that much algae it’s quite far away from the...

    Dwarf Gourami Pair

    Would you be able to have a Cobalt blue dwarf gourami and a Flame dwarf gourami together as a pair as they are the same breed just different colours?

    Lights Off

    So I have a 29 gallon tank and a few of my fish, my gouramis, platies, and mollies, always charge the glass when I turn my lights off. They are the only fish in my tank that do that so I'm just wondering if that's normal behavior for them. They've been doing that since I got the tank about 2...

    Recovering from a disaster

    A while back I forgot to turn off the heater during a water change - I caught it pretty quickly but the shock killed most of the fish in the tank. Looking at the heater filter cord and all the other cords around it - they basically melted. Then, around the same time, we were working on my new...

    I have a 20-gallon long tank with one dwarf gourami, some neon tetras, and a pleco. I've recently been interested in adding a Gardneri Panchax.

    Oh dear, Gourami trying to mate

    I have at least two male blue Gourami trying to mate with a single female. I'm not going to intentionally keep the offspring because of their size - I just bought a larger tank because we had 3 large gourami live with the last litter and within a month were nearly the size of their parents...

    Gourami tank mates??

    I currently have an extremely skittish dwarf gourami in a 10 gallon tank. I was wondering if there was any tank mates that could go with him? I heard maybe ghost shrimp? However, I have heard before that dwarf gouramis should have at least a 20 gallon tank. If that is truly the case, I will not...

    Tell me what you guys think of my stock list? At the moment I have 10 pygmy corydoras and 2 rescued cardinal tetra. I plan on bringing the cardinals up to 12 or so and they cories up to 15 (more of both if you guys think it could work). When the tank is mature enough, I will be moving my 5 oto...

    My new gourami is sick

    Today I got a new dwarf gourami from petsmart, but I didn’t realize there was an issue with it until I got home. I was hoping someone might have an idea what it is but I think it might be fin rot.

    Killifish And Gourami?

    Hello , To get straight to the point I am really interested in Killifish . But don't want a tank of just them as they seem to fight from what I have heard . I thought about getting a group of Pygmy Corydoras as they seem a good match with the Killis . But I felt something would be missing and...
