Personally, I wouldn't add any more. If that male was that aggressive to go and kill off the other males, then I don' tthink he'll take too kindly to others.

Not trying to be negative.....are his eyes bulging out a little? That is also a sign of dropsy. How much of the water did you change? Did you match temp and ph?

You said you have algae on the glass.....do you have sunlight hitting that tank? That will definitely cause algae growth. Brown algae (diatoms) are common in newer tanks, which is what your tank...

I've always just used a sponge and ceramic rings in my HOB's. Shouldn't really need anything else unless you have a problem.

I just upgraded a 29g to a 55g, and it was somewhat painful. I can't imagine a 90g. As Dirtdevil said, it probably won't be manageable with even the substrate left in there. And I feel your pain...

I agree with goodbytes. I have a 2.5 just like yours and I use that Finnex Clip-on. My plants grow in there (all low light plants), and I do not dose anything. I'd say the light is just ok, but...

High tech vs. low tech is relative....don't bother with those terms. But you are low tech at the moment. You need to find the correct balance, which can only be achieved through trial and error. ...

How long have you had all those fish together? That ph is kind of low, and you have a bunch of semi-aggressive fish in there. My Bolivian is in a 29g, so similar situation. He likes to protect his...

Raymond S....Ember tetras are awesome, but you need a school, which should be minimum 6 (more is definitely better). And they are small enough that you could go 10 in a 10g and still add more stock....

Hey Perry. I actually run the same light set up in my 29g (one 6700k and one colormax). That is definitely low light, and you should be fine. My plants grow pretty good....definitely not fast. Of...

Aquafella....you'll be fine dosing the 1mL. You would want to be careful with Excel if you had inverts in there. Comprehensive is ok.

This is minor, but I would lay that heater horizontal on the back wall near the substrate. It will be hidden behind that driftwood.

Seems like you have the essentials covered. And in a well established tank, you can have a lot of shrimp. I've had up to 100 in a 10 gallon with no problems.
