    Upgrading to a 20 gallon!

    I'm very excited as I am upgrading my 10 gallon to a 20 gallon. I currently have three adult (two female, one male) gardneri killifish and 6 corys (4 albino, 2 emerald), and two nerite snails.

The nitrates I can do something about ( stop over-feeding!) but the temperature swings can't be doing the shrimp any good...

    Upgrading To A Larger Tank

    I am going to be moving my pleco and upside down catfish from a 10 gallon to a 55 gallon tank in a few weeks and I am concerned that moving the old filter over to the new tank will not provide enough bacteria to cycle the tank. Should I do any additional cycling? If so what would be the best way...

    What To Add After A Restart?

    So after some very poor advise from a guy in an aquarium shop, I lost a platy within a week of owning, and will sorely be missed. My tank was too small so I am picking up a new 3ft one tomorrow. I have (left) a small angel, Congo tetra and tiny bristlenose. I have been told I need to get at...
