yup, having a glass top or covering it with plastic wrap will make it pretty easy. You will want to take it off periodically to allow for some air exchange, and it would be ideal if you had a small...

Some pencilfish at my LFS had similar-looking red splotches, but I didn't think they appeared to be from past injuries. The affected areas were larger than the small spot on yours. I didn't buy them,...

I feel that this is one of the main reasons TO quarantine. Many fish carry diseases aren't expressed in their behavior, appearance or health. But once they are exposed to stress, the disease has a...

I often run DIY co2 on small planted vases, but only when they don't have plants in them. Sometimes I like to do it just to grow out the plants well before I add livestock, other times I have no...

I'd worry about things getting too hot in the summer. Be sure to cover at least part of the larger tanks with shade or vegetation. I'd suggest just going out and finding some local-growing littoral...

Cut a door out of the long side of a water bottle and attach it sideways over the filter to catch the flow. Leave the cap off and arrange the bottle so the cap is just below the surface of the water....

Coasters are good, but keep in mind that if you spill water and it gets under the coaster, you'll still have the same exact problem. The water will stay there and won't go anywhere. Consider rigging...

In my experience, a population of shrimp can usually be maintained in a heavily planted tank as long as none of the fish you have will prey on the adult shrimp. Rams, apistos, discus, and betta all...
