Hmm, on second thought, maybe a ram isn't such a good idea. Pretty strong temp fluctuations in the house during winter, although a good heater will obviously help regulate that.

Maybe I'll try...

Hmm, not bad ideas. I might try something like German Blue Ram, I've never had anything larger than a fat swordtail. But I also have another tank and a bit, so the little guys are a possibility.

I can vouch for only allowing the lilies to do one or the other. Once they find the light at the top of the tank, that's all they really want to do unless you do a very severe trim (as in all...

Thanks for the ideas!

The tanks are stacked vertically (no room for side-to-side) and no hoods were provided. That being said, I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, heck, I'm just happy...

20 gallon high stocking

I randomly was gifted a pair of 20 gallon tanks, plus stand. The tanks look to be in great shape, I'm pretty sure of what substrate I want to use, and vaguely know I want in terms of plants. What I...

Anyone root fuchsia cuttings in their tanks? I was able to get what would ordinarily be months worth of root growth in weeks. Seems to be acceptable leaf size for placement with a tank, and my...

I actually like my snails. I've seen pond/bladder snails eating cyanobacteria of all things. I could use that now, but generally I have no issues with them at all. Cheaper than otos, that's for sure!

In that vein you could say Anubias Barteri, Nana, Petite, Gold, and all the variations are all the same plant. Technically they're all the same species, but when grown look a little odd

The Heterandria Formosa I know from personal experience would be perfectly happy in that jar, perhaps as many as 10 of them. I've had a colony of 20 in my 5, and had I not thrown as many as I could...

Some microfish that's I'm pretty confident would be happy there include:

Heterandria Formosa (world's smallest livebearer and US native, no heater needed)
Mircodevario Kubotai...

Update on my plant. It's clearly starting to grow new leaves and potentially branch after having 2/3 split off a few weeks ago (4-19). Seems to have the standard anubias toughness after such a split,...

I've heard of some people that had great success with it. Lost the links to their journals though. Didn't seem too difficult once the requirements were met. Lots of zucchini required, haha

Normally they start branching or produce a new main section once you cut a segment. I personally prefer 4-6 leaf segments if there's enough rhizome, or larger. Anubias can get overgrown on itself if...

co2 won't be necessary for those plants. I might suggest Excel as a substitute if you get algae issues after new tank syndrome, but you should be fine without it.

Looks good so far! As the anubias grows, you can gradually divide the rhizome and tie it onto the wood if you'd like. Just be careful of it getting algae-fied. They tend to do that, but many types of...

I think they're pretty neat. In relatively low amounts, I don't see the harm in them. You can always use supplemental food like zucchini if anyone is looking a little thin.
