    Post antiparasitic tx for roundworm, Betta not doing well

Will repost accordingly :) ) I have a male King Betta (he is housed alone, too aggressive for tank friends.) that was a...

    Newbie question - can I purchase aquarium plants and store them?

    As the title says - can I purchase aquarium plants and store them in a container of water for a couple of weeks before planting? I’m currently in the middle of a DSM so I’m not ready to plant epiphytes yet, but a supplier I’ve been watching has just restocked some plants I want and I’m afraid...

    20 gallon aquascaping

    I just posted about my 55 gallon, so may as well ask about my 20 long. I'm not as concerned about this tank as it's currently being used as a backup/quarantine tank, but it would be nice to have it looking good. Any advice? Preferably beginner friendly advice Plants: Java moss, java fern...

    How to make this look good...

    This is my 55 gallon aquarium and I'd really like it to be a heavily planted tank but I'm not sure how to improve on it. The bottom is really hectic but the middle is just empty. Because it's a standard 55, it's really tall and it's hard to buy plants (or reasonably priced decor) that are of...

    65 gallon angelfish tank diary

    Moved over from the introduction thread... I’m excited to be here. I have some experience with basic tanks in the past; betas, guppies, mollies, etc in 40gal or smaller. Nothing this big or beautiful until now. Most recently I deactivated my Facebook account and decided to go all out with a...

    How many angels in my 65gal

    I have a 65 gallon deeper than it is long. Said tank is my pfp. How many angels can I keep in this tank? Tank is planted and has a fairly decent sized driftwood. We have some Cory cats already (about 20) as tank mates. And plan to possibly add some schooling types as well, maybe cardinal tetras...

    My plants aren’t :)

    Hi, I’m new to the hobby and this is my first planted tank. I have had it up and running for a month and a half now, have plants and fish in the aquarium. I have a Tropica Plant Growth System 60 set up for co2 and a premium nutrition additive that contains iron to help with plant growth. The...

    Planted Tank Advice?

    So as we're dealing with our 38gal, we're looking to get a second tank, possibly 65gal. We're kind of tired of gravel and want to switch to a planted tank with a sandy bottom. Right now the only plants we have in the 38gal gravel tank is two anubias plants and some moss balls. Other than that we...

    Breeding Pair of Angelfish. Need Fish Community Recommendations.

    Hi- I have a pair of breeding Angelfish. They are in a community with other angels, snails, loach, and rainbows. They laid their eggs and were caring for them well! One morning I woke to a snail on the eggs and most gone. I can't confirm the snail ate them but no more eggs. I just got a...

    My tank has live plants in it now!

    I decided to add some live plants to my betta tank! I added the moss ball a few months ago and it's still healthy so I thought I might try my luck with a few others as well. I added a java fern and two anubias. I keep my LED light on for 10+ hours a day, is there anything else you guys recommend...

    Best CO2 system for about £100?

    Title. Hi guys, wanted to know if there are any decent CO2 systems that are relatively easy to just hook up to a tank and go. never used anything other than a tropica 60 system before so an all-in-one system would be preferred. Cheers!

    Setting Up New 125 Gallon Planted Tank

    I just got a 125 gallon tank for super cheap (it just had a small leak I neeed to seal). The largest tank I have right now is only 20 gallons, so this is sure to be a completely different beast. I have a few general ideas on what I want to do with this tank, and was hoping for a few suggestions...

    My betta’s fins are slowly thinning...

    Hello! My poor betta fish seems to be having thinning fins. I’ve noticed a gradual thinning in his pectoral fins, but recently they seem to be getting worse. His dorsal and caudal fin seem to be thinning now, too. Here are some photos I took during his tank cleaning yesterday. You can see how...

    Betta eats my Bottom feeders food...

    Hi guys, My new 10 gallon planted community tank is doing great...for the most part. It consists of one male betta 4 panda corys 3 Amanos and a nerite. My little ecosystem is actually going along great socially, perhaps too well because my betta has joined my school of corys. He follows them...
