  1. Algae
    I would like to add an algae crew to my planted tank in a few months. I know of a few we can choose from, but I am not sure what would work best for my tank. I thought for sure I wanted Nerite snails because they look awesome, but my pH is too low for good shell health. I thought about amano...

    I came across this article when I'm researching about breeding plecos: http://www.planetcatfish.com/shanesworld/shanesworld.php?article_id=305 I want something challenging, so this is why I'm not starting with RCS. I have a few basic questions about breeding. 1. The article says that the...

    I have one common pleco in my 140 gallon with my goldfish. I know goldfish are not supposed to be housed with plecos. I am afraid the pleco is not getting enough to eat in the tank with the gold fish. It seems like everything that I try to feed it gets eaten by the 12+ goldfish. The pleco right...
  4. Fish
    Found the site when I was doing a search about plecos. I enjoyed reading and thought I'd chime in and ask for some advice. Have a ten gallon tank and didn't know what we were doing (and the sales people were less than informative). Started with three neons, two frogs that were supposed to be...

    I just bought what was called a Draculla Plecostomus from a local pet store here. It looks alot like a Vampire Pleco but has red teeth. Pretty crazy looking but a gorgeous fish. I read a little bit online about these and some people are saying they are carnivorous. I thought all plecos were...
  6. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Ok so I bought some fish (12 glofish and one small pleco and a few runaway snails) and a tank. Walmart didn't warn me I needed to cycle a tank at all before putting the fish in. I litterally filled the tank, removed the chlorine, and put the fish in. They seem to be doing fine but the more I...

    Against my better judgement and stern warnings, I placed a 8" Common Plecostomus in my planted tank. Bad things then happened in the middle of the night. It dug down through all of the substrate and the MTS uprooted and re-arranged every plant. Oh well, I was thinking about re-working...
  8. Low Tech Forum
    Hey everyone 2 years back, we found an old Juwel Rio 400 when we just moved into the house, complete with a stand and a T8 lighting system with two 36 watt light bulbs (ultra low tech). So I decided to have a (very) low-tech setup :D The tank: 150x50x60 cm/60x20x24" (LxWxH) 450 L/120 Gal...

    I have a 20 gallon tank healthily planted: 10 dwarf onions 1 banana plant clover patch 2 indian red swords 5 nerite snails 5 cherry barbs This is my first attempt and have concentrated on the plants during my first 6 months (the cherry barbs were a demand from the girlfriend). So we both...

  11. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi im new here :icon_redf , im planning on purchasing a River:Reef 94l to be used as a planted tank, and i was wondering if i could get any advice on which kind of pleco would be suitable for this tank? And also any views of the tank itself would be helpful? Cheers Webkoala
  12. Fish
    I have been trying to experiment with different plants in my 55 gal, but my goldfish and my pleco seem to think just about every plant is really a salad bar for them. I feed them a well rounded diet, and I've tried distracting them with cucumber & zucchini, but if I run out then it's right back...
