    I've seen a couple videos, but none of them seem to help.

    My Betta recently produced a bubble nest, and he's protective over it. Like, flaring at his own reflection and things like that. When will he forget about it?
  3. Lighting
    This happened when I had turned off his lights for about 5 minutes, then, came back in and turned the lights on. It was genuinely terrifying, and I'm wondering if this has affected his health or anything.

    Hi! I am new to this forum and the fish keeping hobby, I just set up my 40 gallon tank for 2 fancy goldfish (I have not gotten fish yet). I am jumping on here to ask if anyone in the Minneapolis/St. Paul MN area would be willing to share some biological media with me to jump start my aquarium...

    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...

    Hey everyone, I have a 10 gallon planted tank with around 5-7 guppies, 2 males and the rest females. I recently got some RCS to add to the tank. On the first batch, I had a few die from around 9. Two weeks later, I bought some more, with a total of probably around 20. Now I can only find four...

    hello, I don't know much about fish, i do know that most will eat nematodes as well as maybe copepods but particularly nemarodes or white worms, but can you suggest me a fish species which are small that aggressively eat them of the glass, from the water column etc, considering rasbora,sparkling...

    The other day I bought some new fish for my planted tank - at the fish store I was given the latin/scientific name Tanichthys micagemmae, when googling a bit they seem similar but not quite the same. It might be age or sex, who knows? After asking reddit for an answer, someone identified the...
  9. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    If I have a cycled tank that held a fish and shrimp, then took out the fish and for the next two weeks it was just shrimp (and a nerite snail), can the fish be added back or is it not cycled enough for the fish? A similar question is can a tank go a month with just having shrimp and then have a...

    I love my Fluval Spec V, I have two of them, but the middle of the lids have a hole where the light hovers not far above. I've never had a problem with this until today. Although I've had bettas (betta splendens) for years, today a newly acclimated betta (a wild betta/mahachai) apparently...
  11. Algae
    My wife and I have maintained a planted freshwater tank for a couple of years now. Nothing extravagant but it survived with little to no algae attacks. After doing a bit of researching and watching youtube vlogs about tank design and maintenance we decided to upgrade our aquarium to a larger...

    Hey guys! Have a 60 gallon tank I started working on with my dad about three weeks ago. I've been slowly filling it up with hardscape and plants; seems to be coming in nicely. I was able to jump-start the bb with my 10gal tank and it was cycled within a week and a half. I have a shipment coming...

    Can the white dots be CO2 bubbles instead of Ich? I apologize in advance for the lack of pictures. I have a 90gal, CO2 injected, planted community tank. I bought 3 Irian Red Rainbows 3 weeks ago. (no quarantine at the time) I noticed they had lip rot and treated with MelaFix. That took care...

    So I just got a bunch of second-hand fish food. Turns out they were expired since 2016! Can I still feed them? They are all dried pellets + dried blood worm. Google says it is okay, only that they may lose some nutritional value....What do you guys think? There is also a can of New Life...
  16. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello. As the title suggests I just came home to 6 dead glowlight tetras and 2 very discolored pearl gouramis after introducing some malaysian trumpet snails. They were introduced directly from transport to the tank a couple of hours ago. I immediately picked the snails out and quarantined them...

    I'm looking for Fish suggestions for an Orinoco/Meta River biotope. I would like to include some fish that spend most of their time in the upper, open water section of the tank. Any ideas on upper level south american fish?

    Hey, so I have been feeding fluval bug bites for a few weeks and quite a few of my fish seem to be getting bloated or constipated. I heard nothing but good reviews about this stuff so I was wondering if anyone else had a similar problem? Fish that are bloating is one glowlight tetra and the 3...

I also have a 29gal Blackwater tank with a pearl gourami, 8 glowlight tetras and a few amanos/nerites. In my...
