I have my packages marked "hold for pickup". Then I call the PO as soon as tracking shows it arrived (if the PO hasn't called me already - which they usually do). This ends up letting me pick the...

I've kept a lot of rams and I've never had any aggression issues with them other than occasionally with each other (kept with neons, lemon tetras, celebes rainbows, plecos, cories, angels, etc.). My...

I don't have a sulawesi tank, but I do run 8.3 ph on multiple planted tanks, and have only encountered a handful of plants that can't handle it.

I have the same tank but do not (at the moment - intend to upgrade soon) have near as much filtration as you. My tank currently houses 10 emerald rasboras, 6 irian red neon rainbows (not to be...

One female will get endlessly harassed by the males. IME, they're just as bad as male guppies. Either go all males, or you'll want two females for every male.

Just get male endlers - they're smaller, more colorful, and no worries about them overpopulating the tank :)

I would say cardinals are too big (or at least will get there). Neons maybe, but you'd be better off going with a true nano fish.

I just made a decent sized order online (aquabid) - emerald...

Ember tetras! They're very colorful and stay pretty small so work great in nano tanks.

I don't use RO for my shrimp. My tap runs 8.2, kh of 19, and they do fine in it. I DO use RO (actually, usually buy distilled or something along those lines) to top off after water has evaporated. ...

I do top offs only on one of my shrimp tanks just because it's a pain to vacuum and it's open top so evaporates quickly. The important piece is top of with RO or otherwise purified water. ...

Pleco of any kind is too big for that tank. I wouldn't put a bristlenose in anything smaller than a 20-30. Also, some plecos will snack on shrimplets (or even adults), other types/individuals won't.

Just a heads up in case someone else hasn't said it, the peacock gudgeons are probably going to eat any cherry shrimp you put in the tank, at least in my experience. Even the tetras will likely...

I wouldn't put them in something with that small of a footprint. They are smaller than the large rainbows, but they aren't small fish and they are very very active. I've got a 46 bow (3' long) and...

Cherry shrimp will very likely be dinner for the betta. Even the neons and rainbows are likely to harass them. If you're heavily planted, you might have some survive, but they won't be comfortable...

Shouldn't be an issue. I had 3 pair in a 46 bow for a while with no real issues. It was admittedly more peaceful when I moved one pair out to another tank, but even with the 3, they mostly kept to...

Smaller tetras are likely going to get eaten by the main fish, but would definitely agree that congos aren't going to do well in a 54 corner. A good friend has 6 in a 55, and I wouldn't put them in...

Really won't be much difference in schooling behavior, but imo and experience, I'd say black neons need a bigger tank. They get a good deal bigger than a regular neon and are pretty fast, active...

In all honesty, the temp for the cherry/blueberry shrimp really isn't likely to stay a concern because it's all but a guarantee that they'll get eaten by either the ram(s) or cherry barbs. Many a...

What the others said... My PH runs about 8.2, but with a KH of 19, there is NO buffering that down. Even mixing half RO with tap water only lowers it for a day or two. But fish adapt for the most...
