I've personally started virtually every tank except my first one using an extra cycled filter from another tank, or transferring cycled media into the new tank's filter. I don't fully...

I had several male guppies in my 46g with angels, rams, a betta, various tetras, plecos, etc. - the guppies were the most aggressive fish in the tank, hands down. Aside from chasing and trying to...

Unrealted - I'm a JLynn from Texas too, weird! lol!

Anyway, I don't have experience with wild type bettas, but I've kept quite a few "fancy" bettas in community settings. My first suggestion...

Not necessarily true. I've hatched multiple batches of eggs from my rams (mostly gold, but also electric blues and gbr) in tanks my water is very hard and VERY high ph (8.2+). They eventually meet...

Guessing he meant too much money as the first post indicated that the $10 for a tank full of distilled was too expensive.

Anything mushy or melted, go ahead and trim off, those portions won't come back and will only serve to muck up your water. Trim back so that only the firm portions of the plant are left, plant them,...

I think you could probably get away with gertrudes in a 5g depending on the footprint, but threadfins definitely need a larger tank. They are probably twice the size of the gertrudes (at least mine...

The other thing to watch in addition to your water conditions is if the fish seem crowded. If you're going to overstock a tank, it's far better to stock it with fish that occupy different areas of...

I wouldn't trust the honey gouramis with shrimp for sure. I have the even smaller sparkling gouramis in a tank with a few bv culls, and they pester them relentlessly. The shrimp aren't much smaller...

Agreed! I've a 2215 on my 22x22x15 and it's a lot of flow. Pretty sure I'm replacing it with something else and moving the 2215 to my 4' 33g as the 2217 on that one is definitely overkill in the...

The one sitting on the bottom with the little black flecks appears to be a horseface loach, and the red tailed fish with the stripe in the 2nd photo appear to be white clouds.
