2.5 gallon tank I've had for about 10 months. It is heavily planted with immersed plant, can't see in the picture. I do a 50% maybe less once a week water change. There are also 2 sulawesi snails. It...

Did a trim recently and the tank is still doing very well. The driftwood finally got waterlogged enough for me to remove the brick holding it down and the tank looks much larger now. Everything is...

People in the past have advised small pieces of the "cuttle bone" they sell for birds. I had tried it when I was breeding nerites. I cannot say I saw a difference in either direction. It didn't even...

I've had several betta's and never had a jumping problem. Currently have one in a 2.5 gallon. I think with enough cover and regular feeding they don't feel the need. I have had friends whose betta's...

I would try either bringing the light intensity down or shortening the photo period. I am not sure what is going on with your plants. Hard to tell from one photo in a 5 month span. It could just be...

I'd say since there is almost no chance of inbreeding it will probably at least result in healthy offspring if you can get them to do it. Is the male a store bought as well? It is interesting to...

Thanks. I'm hoping to get more plants in there and some more driftwood. Most of what is in there is going into my 55 gallon when the other stuff that is in there finally sinks. Right now it's hard to...

Some update pics.

The 8 Platys died but it seems they must have bred because there are little tiny fish all over. The temp seems to fluctuate a bit, but it stays between 68 and 75 or these are...

I have both fire belly toads and newts and I think without a top you are asking for escape. African dwarf frogs do not require a heater and will be fine with indoor temps even if they fluctuate a...

I feel like if the fish isn't actually "stuck" it's not stuck. I've had fish wedge themselves into things and die before. Doesn't seem like yours was stuck. That being said, I would have removed the...

Crabs are very good at escaping. Have you thought about African Dwarf Frogs? Kind of un-exotic, but if they have a lot of places to hide I think they are more active in shallower enclosures with a...

I had a dirt shrimp tank with no cap for some time. Shrimp seemed to like "digging" in all the little particles.

Some say the cap is helpful in creating a bio filter for the soil as it degrades,...
