  1. Planted Nano Tanks
    I've never done a fish tank before, and am planning what fish and plants to get before I get things set up so the fish can move in. I am planning a 10 gallon shrimp tank and also a 20 gallon fish tank. In the 20 gallon, I am hoping to put 10 yellow fin white clouds, 10 Harlequin rasboras, 5...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I first joined plantedtank in order to post about seed shrimp in my 45p with no luck getting a response. Here we go again! A year after my first experience with a seed shrimp explosion in my 45p, the only solution I found was getting a dwarf gourami to nip the problem in the butt, and it...
  3. WTB/RAOK
    Hello all, I'm about ready to stock some tanks and I'm looking for a few fish: 1. Super Tiger Shrimp 2. 6-8 exclamation point rasboras (Boraras urophthalmoides) or Boraras maculatus 3. Any badis species, but preference is hysginon "red melon" > black tiger badis > scarlet badis It's been...

    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...
  5. WTB/RAOK
    Hello all, I bought a pair of Tiger Badis (Dario sp Myanmar) and they sent me an extra one. She's been separated in a 2.5 gallon due to no room in my 6 gallon - I plan to tear down the 2.5g until a later date and want a good home for her. She's very timid too but I'm sure in a more heavily...
  6. 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...
  7. Planted Nano Tanks
    Ok so I have a 6 gallon nano that I fully planted and its been sitting for about 3 months now. It currently houses 3 guppy fry(who are about to be moved into the 20 now that they are big enough) and a snail. My first question is my Blue hygro plants are exploding out of the tank so I was...
  8. Fish
    Hey all, I've been slowly working on a new project lately, and even though it's going to be quite awhile til I start adding stock, I'd like to get some ideas, so I can build with some creatures in mind. I'm planning on a riparium, with the water a few inches below the top of the tank. I plan to...
  9. Fish
    I'm hoping to breed these. For now I only have a pair of Dario hysginon and a single male Dario dario but I'm looking for female D. dario. The single male wasn't doing too well when I bought him because he was on his own in a small shop tank with a huge shoal of tetras. He was almost totally...
  10. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi all! I just got a ~2.6g Fluval and am wondering what fish, if any, do you think would be suitable? I'm not really into bettas and would rather stick with pygmy corys or some tetra fry then move them up to our larger 20g or 40g tank as they grow. I'm OK with shrimp/micro crabs/snails, too...

    Hi All, I have the bug and am already setting up multiple tanks while I wait for my first to cycle:icon_lol:! My husband is not only supportive, but found another spot in our house and bought me the tank I have had my eye on! He's amazing! So my question(s). I have a Fluval 305 that I...

    The university i'm interested in going to (UT) allows fish in 5 gallons or smaller. What are the best "micro" fish that anyone has had experience keeping?
  13. Fish
    So, lots of us like to keep open-topped aquariums. Some fish are notorious jumpers - guppies, hatchetfish, SAEs, etc. Everyone has horror stories about fish jumping. But what fish have you all had the most SUCCESS with in small open-topped tanks? I'm asking because I have a 7.5 gallon tank...

    Hey guys. So I was lucky enough to do a small group order with a few friends and got a 3 Scarlet Badis from msjinkzd (awesome person)! To my surprise unfortunately no one in NYC seems to be breed them. So I took it upon myself that I will try. They're also my first Scarlet Badis.. I did not know...
  15. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hey guys! So I bought a 8 gal cube for my female betta. It's nicely planted, decorated with driftwood and all, currently left to cycle. After I put in treated water (the one I usually put in her 2.5g) I decided to put her there for a while to see how she likes the environment. As it turned out...
  16. Fish
    After a leak in my 10 gallon I was forced to move my CPDs into a 20 gallon. Even with ten CPDs and 20 or so shrimp, that tank is empty. So now I am thinking of just getting a few different schools of nano fish (chili rasboras and maybe some emerald rasboras as well) When my planting is complete...
