    Live food for tropical

    Hi all, looking to grow some little foods not fish; daphnia, scuds etc . Amazon say their breeder unit requires water at 28-30 deg C ?? I can’t have my tanks at that so how do you people breed and what are you using. Thanks Paul

    Can water spangles and other floating plants survive bleach

    Hi, I'm planning to get some floating plants like water spangles or frogbit. I just lost several fish to ich and have found what might be a leech in my aquarium before.

    Fish cut in half but seems fine??

    Hi all! I have a group of baby honduran red points that are growing up. Earlier this month the smallest of them showed a lot of damage to her tail, it was basically gone, so I removed her from her siblings into my least aggressive tank.
