Ditto on the climbing out if you have driftwood sticking out of the tank. Mine never did, but crays in general are escape artists, and I've read quite a few accounts of the little guys going on...

I'm saying absolutely not based on my personal experience, but for the opposite reason of the other poster. I don't fear the crays safety at all, the betta on the other hand...

Finding another piece of driftwood down the road will lead to the same problem. Virtually ALL driftwood leeches tanins to some extent, and for a good long while. As others have said, this isn't as...

I've kept pygmy cories in almost all my betta tanks, no issues at all.

Common names can often get mixed up/misused, which is why it's a good idea to know the L-number of the ones you're interested in.

As for rare and affordable - good luck! Law of supply and demand...

Rainbows are fish that need to be kept in groups to be happy, and they are VERY active so need the longer footprints to have adequate swimming room. I honestly wouldn't even keep the dwarf neon...

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...

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.
