Tiny scavengers. Any tank that's left empty with any sort of plant or dirt material will develop a small population of scavengers, often things like copepods and little detritivore worms. They aren't...

That sounds like a very cool tank, but yes, the shrimp will get eaten. Microrasboras are about the only fish that won't eat shrimp, and even some of those are a danger. You could try amano, bamboo,...

There won't be any ammonia without anything being added, and adding filter media bugs won't do any good because they'll starve without food. Toss in a chunk of frozen shrimp or something and let that...

The fish store lied to make you buy things. They do that. The only fish suitable for that tank are a single male betta and maybe microrasboras. The fish are not 'totally fine', they are stressed-...

Your tank doesn't have enough space for those fish. Most tetras need at least 20g, and even the smallest need a 10g. Hillstream loaches need at least a 20g, fast current, cool water, high oxygen, and...

Depending on your stock, some of the fry might have a chance at surviving long enough to be caught and placed in a breeder net. You could also put some big wads of Java moss over by the cave for the...

Most badis available in the hobby are males, and they can be a bit territorial. I'd get fewer. You should be fine unless your betta is badis-colored, I'd say.

I'm thinking of trying something like this (but maybe with bloodworms) next time I go lake diving. I'd like to get a better look at the fish than just the fleeting glimpse I get as they dart off into...

Cories will dig up to about eye depth in the sand. How deep that is depends on the species, but no matter the species they won't go past their gills into the sand.

They like mangrove-type areas. You can find them anywhere from near fresh to full marine, so they can absolutely be kept in saltwater. I think they tend to prefer brackish? I found a few of them...

I suppose it could be just that the warmouth doesn't think dominating the angel is worth the trouble. He'll chase the longear, so he's not submissive, but I guess he might just not care too much...

Seeing what appears to be cleaning behavior in a fish that doesn't clean.

Lately, I've seen something a bit odd. My angelfish will slowly approach one of my sunfish, and the sunfish will respond by tilting itself head-down and going pale. The angelfish will then closely...

Given that they live in a geothermal environment and are extraordinarily endangered (less than a hundred left, I believe), I don't think anyone has any.

It could be possible that you have a psycho fish. If he'll beat up any other checkers that you put in, he must not want any more checkers, so it may be best to just leave him on his own unless he...

Other evil checkered barbs? They'd probably be calmer with more tankmates, and if not, the numbers will distribute aggression.

Floating plants will help, but if you have anything less than a complete hood, you're eventually going to come home to find that some of your fish have ended up on the floor.

Their pectoral fins are quite wide, and I've heard of them jumping and landing 5+ feet from the tank because their fins actually give them a tiny bit of lift. I assume this is meant to let them leap...

They stick to the surface and pretty much never swim down. As long as you have floating food, they're fine, and they ignore everything below their level. They jump, though, and they WILL find any...

There are no plecos that are small enough for that tank. All are too large and messy. Get a couple of nerite snails instead, they'll clean the glass.

You are most likely going to need a much larger tank to keep that clown loach. They get at least 10" long and should be kept in groups of at least 5.

Pygmy or dwarf cories are probably your best bet, pandas need a bit more space. Corydoras nannus also look a bit too big. You're trying to stock a very small tank, honestly, your options are limited.

Since they're captive-bred, perhaps ask the breeder what he's keeping them in, parameter-wise. I'd assume something a bit less acidic than their wild habitat, though it does vary somewhat depending...
