  1. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi all, I haven't been the most diligent about keeping up with my cheap tank, but I don't think I'm doing an awful job either. I have a cycled 10 month old 5g tank with 8 Chili rasboras in it. I've got a mix of plants - a lot of surface plants to keep the fish comfortable. I do need to cut some...

    Hi all, First post, first fish tank. I've got a 5g that's about 1.5 month old. It's my bootleg Corona virus quarantine tank - put together from stuff I've ordered online and 2 trips to the fish store. I believe it's been cycled - I've been testing (with strips, I know...) regularly and saw...
  3. Low Tech Forum
    Hello, I am new to this forum:smile2: I am currently cycling a 65 gallon low-tech planted aquarium, and I am fascinated by the idea of having a whole ton of nano fish in it. I have 6 cpd’s from a smaller tank a year back, and once I’m done, I would like to move them to the new tank. I wish to...

    So I currently have a 10 gallon set up with a sponge filter. It is heavily planted with java fern, small anubias, tons of flame moss, and several pieces of driftwood.

    Hello everyone! I currently have a planted 2.5 fluval set up with a few cherry shrimp and a horned netrite snail. I'm really wanting to add a few fish and have fallen in love with chili rasbora. I have "The 101 Best Freshwater Nano Species: How to choose and keep hardy, brillant, fascinating...

    Hey all! I have a well planted 20 gallon forest canopy biotope tank with 4 of the 5 well documented species of the Boraras Genus. And am in the process of setting up a 10 gallon tank with which I plan to breed these species one by one. Below you'll find a hopefully satisfying discussion on...

    My office tank(10G), has become overrun with snails. I have a dwarf puffer keeping the numbers of snails down in my home tank (29G). I have hesitated adding a dwarf puffer to the office tank, as I feared that the DP would hunt down the Chili Rasboras. Anyone with experience with nano fish and...

    Aloha All. I have a little colony of Boraras brigittae here at my office tank (10G). Great little fishes. Recently, I notice that some of the little red chili's have gotten fat. Have I overfeed them or are they ready to drop. A 'fatter' one

    For Christmas my son will get an Aquastyle 9 to house his betta, which has been kept in a giant low tech bowl along with 6 embers and a ramshorn snail. Our betta is an Amano shrimp killer, so all shrimp are out of the question. I'm just wondering a few things... If we didn't have our betta I...

    So I've got a small school of 15 or so Boraras brigittae (chili rasboras) and I've been trying to feed them more than just crushed flakes. -I have NLS "small", but they seem to never enjoy it and just suck it up then spit it out almost all the time. -I feed them frozen cyclops, but they seem to...

    So my bf got me 3 Boraras brigittae for my 12G tank today. Very excited to see them when I got back from work. So cute and so tiny. They make my 12G look so big. Very happy right now, but the big QUESTIONS! : ) * I did about 1hr. of reading and research on my own, but I would certainly like...
