    I'm back in the hobby after a bit of a hiatus and want some advice on my newly planted 20 Long. I used AquaAdvisor to get a sense of what I can fit in the tank, though I know that their suggestions are hit or miss. For reference, I am running an Aquaclear 50, heated to 75F, with lots of plants...

    I've raised fish before (a school of zebra danios in a 10-gallon tank), but never with live plants. I'm planning to repopulate the tank with danios, guppies, gouramis, or some other small, peaceful, schooling fish. Am looking for freshwater plants that are 1) low-maintenance for a beginner, and...

    I have a 36 gallon bowfront, and I really want a group of small fish. I want them to be pretty active, and possibly school (if that's possible in a small tank like mine). I have been searching around for a while now but can't seem to make up my mind. They would probably have to be ordered...

    Have you had, or presently have Lemon Tetras? Do you Love 'em or dislike 'em and why? I have read a lot of people find them to be a fun tetra with nice coloring, and others have stated just the opposite. I am sure like most fish, the environment has plenty to do with the coloring and behavior...

    Sup guys I plan on restocking my tank with a new school of fish that will be house with 9 roselines. I was first glued to the idea that rummynoses would make the best choice but being that I have a lighter background tank, would cardinals make a better choice? I've heard that rummynoses...
