    L181 pleco and Corydoras Venezuela Black

    I have bought 5 L181 pleco - naturally they are quarantined in a separate tank, but when they are ready to be moved out of quarantine I want to place them together with my Corydoras Venezuela Black. Is this a good combo? I don’t want to risk my corys lives or their fins being bitten of

    So, after asking around about how big of a tank I need for my two blackghost knife fish I got many helpful answers and already bought the tank, I just started the cycling process today. I know that the right size should be 120x60x60 cm tank, but the biggest I could get (budget and space wise) is...

    New Betta Tank

    Hello I am going to set up a 10 gallon betta tank. I was just wondering what some good tankmates might be. I have done it with frogs before and they seem to get along pretty well I was just wondering on some other tank mates. Fish or invertebrates or whatever.

    Tank mate suggestions?

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this question, i'm not new to fish keeping, but I'm very new to keeping my own fish tank and species other than goldfish. My family has had goldfish for 15 years or thereabouts, so since I was 4, and currently we have a 13 year old and 3 year old goldfish...

    Tank mates for a Jack Dempsey

    I have a Jack Dempsey cichlid and a Florida pleco in a 29g tank. Both are about 3.5 to 4 inches long.

    Weird dream

    Yesterday I was doing some passive research on tankmates for bettas because one of the videos I watched said that they get lonely without other (non-betta) fish. I decided about halfway through the first video I didn't really trust the source, nor was it time to think about it since my betta is...

    Veil Tail Betta in 45gal

    So I've had plans to make a 45gal community tank and I wanted to move my male betta from his 6gal planted tank to the community tank. The 45gal would have small fish live livebearers and tetras and from what I have found, I think the Betta would do great in the larger tank if I set it up right...
