    My Banana Plant is getting big! I don't know if this is normal lol. It's leaves turn reddish but the ones they have in the store where I got them stay small and green. I read somewhere you can cut the leaves off and make new plants. Anyone tried this?

    Hi guys, I have a problem with my A. Reineckii plants which I got about a month ago. They seem to be growing pretty well and getting new leaves with a really nice dark red/purple color to them. However, some of the the leaves seem to be developing some light (almost white), dots that become...

    I am starting an Amazon biotope housing corydoras. I want to mimic the natural habitat as much as possible and want to create a woody river bed with leaf litter. I am planning on using Manzanita branches and oak leaves scattered about the sand (neither are S.A. native, I know) to simulate this...

    Hello, I have a question that has been bugging me the past 2 weeks. I have had a couple plants that have suffered some leaf loss. The leaves turn transparent and soon melt to a gooey consistency to the point where they just crumble away in the current. My RCS make a good meal of it but I'm not...

    A few people near us own magnolia trees, and I regularly collect the dry leaves and boil them, then add them to my vivarium for the frogs. I'd like to do something like this with my aquarium, just add a bunch of them to the tank for the cories to mess around in. Will they release a lot of...

    Crystal Red Shrimps (CRS) + Indian Almond Leaf (IAL) = More Breeding? Very curious to know if that is still true or only a myth. I have found too many conflicting articles that said that is a hit and miss situation, but again, these in formations have been outdated. Would like to gather new...

    I'm wondering if it would be okay to put sticks, plants, roots and leaves I found in the yard in a tank. Would this be safe as a temporary solution for not having many plants for fish to hide in? As to why I would do this: I have a group of female bettas in quarantine. My plan was to...
