    So my wife and I have gotten into fish keeping in the past month and have made many mistakes, but things seem to be stabilizing now, with the exception of some of our plants. I have a helanthium in the tank that has brown spots, some pale leaves and some chunks missing from it. There is also a...
  3. Fish
    Hi guys! I have 5 Celestial Peral Danios (galaxy rasboras), and I am pretty sure that 3 are male and 2 are female, but I am not sure. I have labeled the fish (some appear more than once) so it's easier for yall to help me figure out which are males and which are females. I am pretty sure...
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So, for the longest time I've been stupidly using Seachem Equilibrium. Turns out, a lot of other people still have shrimp deaths while using this product because it's not all that beneficial for them. I wish I had known that sooner since I had a tub of Salty Shrimp for months that I never...

  8. Planted Nano Tanks
    For some context, I made this tank with aquarium silicone glue and rocks that I found (I made sure they would not alter the PH). It has been running for a little over a month and I added 6 CPDs (celestial pearl danios/galaxy rasboras) last week. One of them had been missing for 3 days, but I...

    Hey, so i’m thinking about getting a 55 gallon tank and stocking it with some peacocks and a redtail shark, but didn’t know how many peacocks to put into it? I’ve heard a lot about overstocking it and such and would like to try and make it more of a male oriented tank. All suggestions would help!

  14. Low Tech Forum
    Hi! :giggle: I've had my tank for a little under 4 months now and it has already gone through so many changes as I have been getting it established. I've made plenty of newbie mistakes, but somehow have managed to keep all my fish alive (if not all my plants)! I started off not doing anything...
  15. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I don’t know what to do. My tank won’t fully cycle no matter what I do. The tank was set up for weeks before I put anything in there. I added food to start ammonia and added a ton of bacteria to get it started, but it just won’t work. Now I have 20 crs, 6 amanos in there, and some mystery and...

    I'm buying a few plants from an online store and I have heard that with certain plants like hornwort, bleach solutions can kill them. I have heard of potassium permanganate being used instead. My question is, how long should I soak them in the solution for? I have heard answers from 10 minutes...

    So I cleaning my aquarium (freshwater) and dumped the water from my red water change bucket and noticed in the bottom of the bucket massive movements. They appear to be tiny bugs moving about, too small to make out with the naked eye. Then I stuck my head into my sump that I just vacuumed...
