    I recently added 5 golden (Beckford's) pencil fish to my 100 litre aquarium. It had 9 (now 8!) semi-mature corys (Julii and Elegans), and 5 peacock goby, also semi-mature, and 9 or so mature amano. They arrived as a bad mix of 4M and 1F, but there's lots of room, in a well-planted tank, with...
  2. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Recently I bought an angelfish for my 90 gallon tank to get rid of lice on my goldfish. The lice seems to be gone now and the angelfish is now nipping at the fins of my goldfish. I don't really know if there is a way to stop the aggression or if I will have to get rid of the angel, any tips?

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum. I have recently had a strange occurrence in my 29 gallon planted tetra tank. In the tank, I have 8 neons, 6 serpae, and 6 black skirt tetras (plus some otocinclus and a pleco). All fish have been in perfect health. A couple of days ago I did a 30% water...

    I have 2 male blood sword tails, and they are picking at 12 of my rasboras occasionally, and frequently picking at my 1 dwarf gourami. i added a bunch of plants and made one corner very dense with plants, the gourami is fine now. but i'm worrying about the harlequin rasboras. Ammonia 0 nitrate...

    So last week I picked up 2 honey gouramis from my LFS for my 20 gallon high. They are the natural color varient, and display as such. I'm quite certain I have a male and a female, but from reading around, I guess I can't be certain from coloration. The "male" is bright orange, yellow dorsal fin...

    I set up a 150 gallon planted tank this summer with the interest of making it a discus aquarium. Last week I bought a discus (2") and he has been doing fine. Today, I bought two more, one that's the same size and one that's 1.5". Unfortunately, the one that I had first has been nipping and...

    I've set up a new tank and got a female platy. I'm only stocking 2 or 3 of this family eventually. Does anyone happen to know whether a male molly will chase a female platy? They wont produce anything, obviously, but I will get a female to keep the stress level low if need be. And I...

    I was playing around with different stocking combinations on aqadvisor.com/ for a tank that I'm cycling right now. At the bottom of the page I received a warning about Sparkling Gouramis being aggressive to all of the different species, of small schooling fish, that I entered. Does anyone have...

    I have finally got my tank cycling now. Its a 75 gallon, I intend to stock slowly but this is what i would eventually like to have. I would greatly appreciate any advice as this is my second planted tank (the first was a 5 gallon betta tank, took only 4 months to decide I needed a bigger tank...

    Hi, I have a 45 gallon semi-planted tank with a sand substrate and a lot of driftwood, and today I went and bought 2 sumo loaches. After getting home I read they can be relatively aggressive? This may be a problem in my peaceful community tank, so please give me advice/suggestions! Tank mates...

    (Looks like bolivian threads are popular today) So, I have two bolivian rams, purchased about 2 1/2 months ago. Let's call them "Bully" and "Victim." Victim was quite a bit larger than Bully at time of purchase, and I am 99% sure is male (3rd dorsal ray extended, tail fin extended, reproductive...

    I screwed up. I have 3 Neon Blue Dwarf Gourami in one 29G tank. I started with two, as I was a chump and trusted the kid at the LFS that said they were peaceful. The one with the brightest colors is a real mean SOB, first tearing up my guppies in my (de facto) quarantine tank, and now chasing my...

    Hiya~ So, I'm about to embark on my first tropical fish tank and after long hours of research and reading have decided I would like to start with a collection of Tetra and Gourami. However, in a lot of the articles I've read, it mentions that certain Gourami can be aggressive, but doesn't...

    I bought two sunset gouramis and one died due to a filter accident (which I have since fixed). I bought another sunset gourami last weekend, but didn't realize they are both males. The first gourami (Oscar) constantly chases the new one around the tank and the new gourami is terrified of it. It...

    Realizing this is probably a rhetorical question, but also a desperate one, what is the possibility of housing Appistogramma Cacatuoides with CRS and Amano shrimp? Would they feasable when full grown, or would they have a cocktail at 3 inches with the shrimp? I've seen other tanks where its been...
