    So I have a new 55 gallon tank that has been cycling and I feel like I may be doing something wrong. I've been throwing food in to help cycle but the ammonia never spikes and the Nitrite and Nitrates seem to be all over. I have successfully cycled tanks before but this is my first planted one...
  2. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hello! As with many I'm sure, I'm bored out of my mind stuck at home and have taken to my tanks for something to do. I have a small (like 5 gal) tank that I've always used as a fry tank. I have absolutely no plans to do any more breeding so I can now either dismantle the tank or repurpose it for...

    I So my main question is suggestions for fish, but one of my main road blocks is that the reason that I have always owned goldfish and koi is because they have personalities and interact with people, a trait that from my understanding is lacking in many of the schooling fish who are more plant...

    I'm going to start working on a 36 gallon bow front planted freshwater tank. One problem though... FISH! I simply can't decide that's why I need suggestions for really cool fish. I'm looking for weird, dorky, and even ugly ones. Any suggestions? Thanks - Ibinyth :smile:

    Hi everyone! Now first off, I've got to say I'm the worst beginner for an aquarium. I'm using a 7-Gal vertical tank from my parent's storeroom that has iron parts holding up the corners (aka-rimless). I originally thought less was more until I stumbled across this site and all the forums. So...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to this and its safe to say that my knowledge is pretty limited at this point (go easy on me). I figured I would start small, with a 10 gallon tank. After setting it up, I finally stocked it with a few fish. I currently have 3 fire barbs and had 10 neon tetras...

    I am in need of a placostimus (? spelling) for my 50 gallon tank. I had one but when we moved he didn't make it. But, my tank is looking awful. The pet stores all have them but they are all to small and I am afraid that my fish will eat him. Does anyone know where I can find an algea eating...

  11. Planted Nano Tanks
    I'm looking for some fish stocking ideas for a 4 gallon finnex. I have been through the nano tank fish list and it seems the only fish truly suitable was a betta. I also do not want to have to feed live food to further complicate matters. I already have one 4 gallon with a betta. Personally...

    I'm looking for a big centerpiece schooler fish for my 46g heavily planted. A schooling fish, but one that is larger than cardinals or rummynose. I need it to get along with smaller tetras like cardinals, not nip at plants too much, and be a peaceful as possible. Any suggestions?

    Hey I have a 90G heavily planted with C02 T5HO's and EI dosing and I was wondering what type of Loach you'd recommend in there... I have a huge pond snail infestation that I just let live in there but think it'd be fun to get a loach and let them go nuts in there :) I just have a bunch of...

Dont have any snails, in my last tank something was eating/killing them as i would find shells when i was cleaning the gravel. I have 5 rosey barbs 3 full grown swords, and about 18 juvi swords. 2 Red blood...
