    I’m not new to planted tanks and invertebrates, but I am new to fish. I want to set up a community tank in a new 20 gallon long tank that I just got and I have a good rather basic idea of what I would like to do. I’ve been very successful with red cherry shrimp and crystal shrimp so I don’t...

    Hi all, I have a TV stand that I'm using as aquarium stand for 5 years, supporting a 10 gallon tank. I want to upgrade to a 20 gallon, and wonder if the same stand could support twice of the current weight. Please see below for actual pictures. The back panel is made of cardboard, the rest is...

    Greetings, I've been in this hobby for a little a year or so. so i would say i'm a beginner. I've tried a few different arrangements over the year but nothing really comes out like i'd hoped, either a certain plant doesn't do well or it doesn't look balanced or natural etc. So once again i'm...

    Hey guys, hope you're all having a fine Monday. Anyways, I have 8 tiger barbs in a 20 planted long. They started off aggressive, but now are as chill as can be. I was thinking of adding some Zebra Danios to the mix. I heard they get along fine and usually just mind their own business. Should...

    Hi, A newcomer to planted aquascapes.. I have an 90 liters/ 21 gallon acrylic tank with dimensions 68 L * 50 H * 45 W dimensions. This came pre-fit with 1x 15W and 1x 10 W T8 lights. Later came to know that this isn't enough for growing medium light plants. As the water column is over 50 cms...

    Hey Everyone! So I am FINALLY on spring break from school, so I can finally work on my tank! It is a 20 long for a betta. It had a divider, but one betta passed so that is removed. You can still see the blue divider-holder, but I am planning on taking that out. Does anyone have any advice on...

    I picked up 1 male and 2 female Florida Flag Fish from my lfs the other day. They are super cool fish! They get really mixed reviews, but I plan on being very picky about tankmates, if they get any at all. Also they have been kept very full and content (the tank had a ton of algea!) I hear...

    I'm moving out of Boston and to the 495 belt in a couple of months and would love for my fish tank to not be part of that move. So far I've ripped up the java fern and basically all of the wisteria. I've also gotten rid of most of the fish, shrimp and snails, but there's still more in there...
