    70 Litre (18 Gallon) Tank Restart

    Yesterday, I came to the decision to swap my tank from cold water to tropical. I sold my WCMM and Corydoras, and now have an 18 Gallon tank empty and ready for a fresh start. I done a 95% water change and did not wash the substrate so as not to have to cycle again, though I suspect I may go...

    Will these fish fight? help with stocking 55 gallon.

    Ok, so I’m pretty new to fish keeping and I was recently given a 260 litre/ 55 gallon tank. I’ve been playing with a few ideas but have settled on stocking with fish on the larger side.

  8. How many guppies can I keep in a 10 gallon?

    How many guppies can I keep in a 10 gallon? No other fish, just guppies(All males or all females so they don't breed), as well as a couple snails. I don't want to do water changes more than weekly since I usually just do tank maintenance over the weekend.

    Subtropical Community Tank

    Unfortunately 3 of my platy fish jumped out of a bucket while I was re-scaping my tank for a planted aquarium, so I am now left with 6 WCMM. I never really took it serious that fish would jump, and a platy of all fish :confused: guess I've learnt my lesson now. Anyways, I've invested in a good...
