    Possible brand new tank

    Hello! My platies recently had fry, the first fry I've raised. As a result, I feel attached to them and I don't want to give them back to the fish store, so I'm trying to find homes for them with people I know.

    Cycling for new 10 gallon tank is stuck?

    Hi, I've got a 10 gallon tank set up for a betta fish, and of course I've been trying to cycle it before I get my fish.
