    Help me identify these tetras

    I saved about 40 fish from a guy who was shutting down his tank. He gave me some neon tetras, rummy nose tetras, guppies, halfbeaks, and then two species of tetras I don’t know the name of and the guy at the pet store also didn’t know what they were. Some of them also look like they may be...

    http://imgur.com/a/Nbr3CFD Hello, is this a female or juvenile Boesmani? It was sold as a turquoise and looked like one in the shop, but now in the tank at home I'm thinking it's a boesmani.

    New Betta - help identifying color/pattern?

    Hi all! I went to the LFS planning to pick up some plants and a few more amano shrimp... and I left with a lovely betta named Queenie. I recently lost the fish in my 5.5 gallon, so it has been sad and unoccupied for the first time in almost two years -- needless to say, I'm glad to have...

    Snail ID

    I've just spotted this baby snail in my tank. I have no idea what it is. I have pest pond and rams horn snails but it's definitely not one of those. I put some assassin snails in less than 2 weeks ago so it's not one of those either. It has a long, conical shell. It's 'upright' sort of...

    Hi Guys,   Purchased this substrate today from my LFS. The guy who sold it to me didn't know who the supplier was and what type of gravel it is or what the dimensions are?   Anyone have any ideas about where I could get something similar from or what the dimensions might be?   Thanks in advance...

    White Algae?

    This might seem like a stupid question but is there white algae? I bought a plat for my tank maybe a week ago (ish) and it was the kind that is sold out of tank (idk brand name but they're packaged so they're "snail free guaranteed"). I got back home from a weekend at home and I notice on the...

    Hi Everyone,   This is my first post. Today I foolishly, on impulse, bought two gorgeous little things from the guppy seller at our local market here in Thailand. I would normally do some research beforehand but in over 10 year this was the first time I saw them and got excited. My two year old...
