That looks like a pretty significant injury from what I can see. Most retailers offer a fish guarantee of some sort. I'd bring it back and ask for another fish. It may have been injured when they...

They are kinda shy and are easily overwhelmed by bigger, faster fish. I have a blob of java moss in my tank that provides some cover for them and they love zipping around in it. When I had tetras and...

Amazing algae eating fish...just thought I would share.

I have a fairly new 20 gallon tank, just under 1 WPG, planted with a variety of crypts and anubias. Have a nice piece of manzanita wood in there as well. While fishless cycling, ended up with a few...

May sound like a dumb question, but I'm assuming you have some sort of filter on the tank? You didn't mention anything, so thought I would ask.

Love the suggestion of rummynose. They are a great schooling fish that are nice and active and peaceful. I'd get a nice big school of those. I love rainbows as well and have boesmani, herbert...

Yeah, if you've only had the new tank set up for a week, it's definitely still cycling. Using some old tank water doesn't really do a whole lot to get things going, especially since you have a new...

Agree 100% with Over Stocked. Lots of water changes are in order and do fairly large ones as well. Small water changes will do almost nothing. Your tank sounds like it's still cycling. You say you've...

I totally forgot about African shell dwellers! I had a colony of multis in a 20 gallon for a few years and then sold them all. One of the most entertaining fish that I've kept to date. You start off...

How much ammonia is "not bad"? What's your reading...because you shouldn't have any ammonia. Even a small amount of ammonia can be lethal.

Yep, looks good so far, although I kinda liked your driftwood in the original pictures. But, once things have grown in, the stump will look less like it's just standing there on its own. I'd maybe...

If a LFS manager is at all a resposible fishkeeper, he/she should always be aware of the general health of each tank in the store. If you see ich pop up on even a few fish, I'd treat the entire tank...

Maybe others have had a different experience, but I've never seen my bristlenose on his back. The only time he's upside down is when he's hanging upside down from my driftwood or a leaf.
