    My (very) low-cost 7.92 gallons tank

    Well, since I transferred my artemias to other containers that are still now on the porch, then I transformed a brine shrimp culture (for my term paper from my Major in Biology) to freshwater. This is the setup: • Size: 15.74" length x 11.81" height x 9.84" width, 7.29 gallons; •...

Originally it came with a large black sponge in the middle compartment (areas 4-5 in the drawing) - which I assumed was the Carbon filter but the...

    Beginner - Lighting, CO2 and not knowing what I don't know

    Hi Everyone! I'm pretty new to the forum - I posted once before to ask for help on my 21 Litre Nano, because every time I did a water change, my nitrites would go up! I've actually had to break down the tank and nearly gave up on it (and the hobby) altogether - but here I am. I started having...

    Beginner how-to: Tiny Tanks

    Most people's first fish tank is small, usually 5 US gallons (19 liters) or less. It is far too common that people will buy a 1 gallon, or 3 gallon, or 5 gallon tank, and then find out later they have stocked it with the wrong kind of fish, or too many fish, or a bad mix of fish. So I wanted to...

I do ~20% water changes every week as well, and I was wondering if I could safely put...

    Vacation Tips?

    Bio Orbs

    does anyone have any bio orbs?  what size do you have?   do they function better as nano tanks? do the larger ones properly filter everything?   are they worth the price?   i saw a larger bio orb and i was smitten,but it seems it only functions with a airstone and lights.

    Betta Vs Guppies, Which Would You Choose?

    Okay, we'll I've got a 5 gallon, 21 litre tank that is free at the moment. I want to set up a nano tank and I want some opinions... Would you have a Betta in the tank or 3 male guppies? The filter is an AquaOne Clear View 100 HOB. I really just can't make up my mind which is why I thought it...
