    My 60P (60L, 17 gal) tank has been running for close to two months. It's cycled, but is home to nothing but hitchhiker snails and plants so far. I'm struggling to decide what fish to keep...I feel like a good-sized shoal of a small fish would look nice. Part of me also would like some variety...

    Hi all! After about 10 years of not having a fishie friend I am returning to fish keeping! Perhaps it’s the pandemic that has us wanting to watch something other than the TV 🙂 My husband has never had fish and I’ve had fish since childhood and up until about 10 years ago when my beloved red...

    Hello, I have a 20 gallon long community tank with neon and ember tetras, kuhli loaches, assorted shrimp, and a nerite snail. Could I successfully keep an ADF in my tank with them? My shrimp are breeding like crazy and I wouldn't mind the frog eating a few shrimplets here and there, just don't...

    I just discovered I'm at 99 posts, total, so I figured I'd celebrate by making my 100th the start of a tank journal! After all, I finally have a proper tank running. I would have started this up during the process of setting it up, except I didn’t really have time. Originally, I was going to...

    Hello! I was redoing my 55gal.... looking for LED lights on craigslist and ended up buying an entire 150gallon aquarium!

    Hello! I am shopping around for a LED for a 20L I am going to set up this week. I am going to put garden soil down (I've had success doing this in the past), cover that with gravel and plant it. I have plants from a 20 High that I just broke down, so that is to say I have a fair amount of...

    I plan on getting a pair of Moliwes when I set up my tank, But I was curious as to know if I could keep them in my 20 gallon tank happily.

    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...

    I am looking for some inspiration. Most of the "shy" fish are currently bunch up on the left side under and around the driftwood. I plan to build up the right side of my tank with more (stacked) rocks to create caves. I have quite a few more and taller plants but the picture below should give...

    Hey there, I will be setting up a moderately planted 29g aquarium with a Fluval 206 canister filter. Dirt substrate capped with gravel and sand in some places. The PH of the water out of my tap is 7.8 and doesn't change once in the aquarium (based off of my 10g). My plan so far is: 5 -...

    Hey everybody. I will sooner or later have to tear down my 5g tank (link in sig), but I have a 28g that I just emptied and and I have a vision for. It was inspired by user "ebileth" and her 29g which can be found here http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/showthread.php?t=649002 . Here are my...
