    I've had my aquarium set up for about 2 years now and over the course of its life, I've noticed that a lot of plants that other people have a lot of luck with keep dying on me. For reference, I have a low-tech 15-gallon tank with a Finnex Planted+ light that runs for around 8 hours, 80˚F...

    Hey everyone. I'm looking to buy a 40 gal. I'm having problems finding hoods. And I'm wondering what's everyone's thoughts on open glass vs the center support. I don't think I want the long because it's not too wide. But, it allows 2 full hoods to be placed ontop. And the center support seems...

    To get it out of the way, here are my parameters/stats. This is after I changed the tank on Tuesday, having added fertilizer Monday. I add Thrive S every Monday and Friday.

    Hey guys! So I have this guppy, today I noticed some swelling whilst doing a water change. She’s been bigger for a while but it wasn’t until today she started really getting big.

    So, I’m feeling down right now and wanting to give up. I’ve spent way too much on Shrimp, probably 100s…. Only for them to… Just die? I have two tanks, a 10 Gal, and a 5.5 G. Both tanks have been running 1+ Year before Shrimp. The 10 Gal is mixed with culls, and a few decent quality Bloody...

    Recently my peacock gudgeons have been breeding like crazy in my 30 gallon species aquarium which has never happened before so I've decided I'll try raising the fry. I've managed to pull 3 sets of eggs out and put them into an established hatching tank on the 5th day they were laid. I will admit...

Until a couple weeks ago I was doing 40% water changes twice a week and have lost several cherries to failed molts. I know better now...

    Hey everyone so I am somewhat new to planted aquariums. I had some Java moss run away on me and attach to random things.

    Hi everybody, I hope you’re all doing well. This morning, my boy Meddi (named after the Mediterranean Sea) was doing good, his normal self. Then, when I came back from school (about 7 hours later), he had a lighter patch of scales on his head. It doesn’t really look like hole in the head either...
