I have a bottle of API pH adjuster, it says 1ml for 38l but it doesn't say how much that actually lowers the water by. I know that sudden changes in...

    Thoughts on Heater Free Aquaria

    The Cichlid entry, https://www.fishbase.se/summary/69375, by @I Like Rare Fish brings something of interest to me and I expect others as well. And that is, is it possible to have an interesting cold water tank and save a bunch of power. Right now I mostly care about angel fish, since getting...

    Filtering tap water

    Hello. I wasn't sure where to post this, hope this is okay. I need advice about filtering tap water. But first, I want to mention that yes, I know about RO water, but that is not an option for me at the moment. I really hope someone who has either dealt with this before or knows about it can...

    UNEXPLAINABLE DEATHS?!?!

    Hi everyone. I’m absolutely baffled as to what is going on with my fish. I have two tanks, one for guppies and one for guppy fry. I bought two new filters to put in my tanks yesterday, so I kept the original filters in the tanks, and just added the new filters as well. Anyway, I noticed a few...

    70 Litre Community Tank

    Hi, so I’ve recently bought a 70 litre tank and cycled for 48 hours with beneficial bacteria and de-chlorinator. Tank dimensions are around 60cm x 30cm x 50cm and type is Blue Planet 70l. Is this big enough to have a community tank? If so, what types of fish could I have? I’ve been thinking...

    Are my female Bettas trying to mate?

    Hey! This is a bit of an unusual question. But I recently bought two young female betta fish. I already have two existing Betta females in the tank, fully grown. These new bettas I bought look to be younger as they are smaller in size. However I’ve noticed both of my new females on different...

    Is my balloon molly pregnant?

    I bought my balloon molly roughly 4 weeks ago, however, this past week I’ve noticed she has more of a defined tummy than she did. Since I had her she did have a round belly but it does seem a little larger now. It also has a slight boxy look to it. It think it’s really hard to determine whether...
