    How many fish for my tank?

    Hey guys, I’ve tried to look online, and I’m getting a lot of contradicting advice, considering the variables depending on the fish I’m interested in. I have a 180-litre tank but only have 160 litres of water. I have a 200 Eheim pick-up filter and 200-watt heater to make up for heat loss...

    Hey Glugs? Lol

    Hey guys, hope you’re all well. I’ve kept koi for awhile now but I’ve recently done my first aquascape. I’ve signed up because this is all new to me and I’m hoping I can get some great advice. I have a half open top tank and that's why the water is lower by 8 inches from the top if any fish...

    Raising PH

    My 100L Tank has a PH of 6, at least this is what it reads when testing (using API Master Test Kit). I was wondering if I should go about trying to raise the PH and if so, what the best way to go about doing this is?

    Female honey gourami chasing the new male?

    The one with more vivid colur is chasing the smaller paler one. Can't decide whether two females or one female and a one male. Anyway, it seems that the more vivid one is always making sure that the other stays at the back of the tank. No biting though, only chasing.

    Colder water for guppies?

    I have 5 guppies and they are living in a 70l tank. I have a 200l already set up, with no fish in it. I have done lots of tests and the water is exactly the same as the 70l (uk). The guppies are currently living with 3 rosy barbs (rehoming them soon). I didn't realise rosys were so aggressive...

    Anyone know how to stop breeding?

    Hello! How can I house 6 rosy barbs without them breeding? I already have 1 male and 2 young females and I'm getting 3 more soon. The male has been chasing the females around quite a bit and I don't know if he's trying to breed or make friends. I definitely don't want them breeding. Apparently...

    Cuban Limia

    Hello everyone. I just recently purchased a couple female cuban limia fish from a petstore around me. I did some general research on them and was prepared for the buy. I’ve got my water parameters around where they like it as I am pretty sure that they are closely related to mollies. I guess my...

    Hello :) I have a planted 24l tank with four male fancy guppies. The pH in the tank is 8.2, I have read that guppies like it between 6.8 and 7.6. 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...
