    275 gallon outdoor freshwater tank

    Hello, new member here from Phoenix. I used to keep aquariums, but recently gave it up because I was spending much more time around the backyard koi pond. Seems I just couldn't stay away! I keep a 275-gallon IBC tote isolated from the pond, with its own filtration, to use as a quarantine tank...

    What is this on my BN Pleco?

    Hi, So I recently noticed some white cotton-ish growth on my male BN, around his gills - started on only one side and then quickly became evident on the other side too. I immediately took some photos and went to my LFS who suggested its probably a fungus (i suspected this!). I purchased some...

    When Will My Pleco Outgrow This Tank?

    I have a 5-month-old common pleco measuring just under 10 inches in what I now know to be an undersized home -- a 30 gallon tank (36" x 12" x 16") aquarium. Sometime within the next year (probably next fall), we'll be upgrading to a much, much larger aquarium more befitting his size. In the...
