    Hi my name is Sam and I'm not new to fish keeping but very new to planted tanks. Ive had tanks all my life but just got rid of all my cichlids that I had in my 75gal with a custom 3d background because I recently had a baby and I just don't have the time or $ to properly care for it (my diy...

    [First let me apologize for subpar cellphone quality photos...My camera charger is lost in limbo :/] So after realizing that I seriously miss the betta I had for over a year before it fell prey to an over excited puppy knocking it's tank over while I was out, I started looking into doing a...

    Hello! I am going to be moving my 2g tank soon to a place where it'll be hard to put a light on it. There is a really bad light that came with it but I want to use something else and I'm going to make it rimless. If I put a lamp next to it would that work? I'm not planning on any hard...
