  1. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hey guys, just wanted to throw my scape up and ask if.... I should add a flat black background to this setup? I'm limited to this countertop for space.. Figure with the current plants, a dark black background would be a nice touch... feel as though the clear glass background is affecting the...

    15 gallon aquarium pH: 8.1 kH : 8 degrees heavily planted good filtration My harlequin rasboras, which people claim need acidic water are doing fantastic in my other aquariums. But i wasn't too sure how neon tetras would handle my water as they are not as hardy as harlequin rasboras. What do...

    I recently came home to find that all my neon tetras have died. One was listless and swimming upside down and erratically. I have: 10 gallon heavily planted aquarium ( 5 years old) 3 dead neons 2 cory cats ( they're fine) 2 oto cats ( also fine) 1 danio ( i wish this guy died instead)...

    I am trying to decide on the best bottom feeder/eco-cleaner for my glass pico tank. It is a 2g cube with a relatively large Amazon sword planted in SeaChem onyx sand, and a small school of Neons. No filtration. Fish & plant are as happy and healthy as they can be. It's remarkably simple and...

    I'm currently watching my 5 neon tetras behave how I've never seen them before? They're relentlessly chasing each other - looks like 3 males are fighting over the (what I assume are) females? I normally have a peaceful tank and now I have tetra frantically 'tagging' for each other.. On another...

    I currently set up a 30 gallon planted aquarium. With baby tears, wisteria, and java moss. I have 5 large yellow snail and 2 neon tetras. The others dies :(. I am ready to add more fish but don't know what to get. I don't want any aggressive fish or fish that harass snails. Ps do I need to...
  8. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Just a couple quick questions; 1st, I'm planning on completely redoing my 55g and I'm curious if neons and GBRs are compatible. Also, my lfs is pretty lame when it comes to trading in fish for store credit. Is there any other reasonable option for getting these guys out of here?

    Does anyone know where I might be able to buy some of these? Online or locally in the LA area? Would love some for a planted nano tank. Thanks (:

    Planning on buying a new 75 gallon tank this week, and was wondering how many neon tetras i can safely put into it with maybe 10 other bigger fish or so(1-2" fish- guppies, tetras, etc)? And if anyone has Neon/Cardinals for sale let me know :D.

    First of all I'd like to say that I have not posted in a while and I love the similar threads finder, what a great idea! Anyway, I have 5 neon tetra's alone in a 29g that I purchased together when they were very small and now, about 10 months later, they are full grown. First, I would like to...
