Great. I didn't know there was already one out there, but now that I know there is, we just need to make people aware of it, and get knowledgeable people to help contribute. Thanks for the link :)

Hey,

I'd be careful with buying driftwood on ebay. You can get some really great deals, but I had trouble getting mine to stay submerged, even after soaking for 5-6 months. I didn't try boiling though...

Absolutely beautiful.

Do you know how many gallons the tank is? How are the dwarf cichlids doing? Also, what kind of camera settings are you using to take the pictures? The pictures are very nice...

Very nice tank :)

In the future though I wouldn't use fish to jump start cycling: it can be harmful for the fish, and it is not hard to cycle without the fish. Just move some substrate, a plant,...

What disease is this? (pictures included)

Hi,

I have some Columbian Tetras who have recently started showing signs of some sort of disease or infection. Previously, one had a similar affliction, but the fish sadly died before I was able...

Otos (Otocinculus Affinis) and Ancistrus sp. are both great algae-eaters for amazon tanks. The ancistrus can get up to 5-6'' though which is too big really for a 10g. The otos are really nice and are...
