  2. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hello all, I'm new to the aquarium community and am trying to get some reliable information regarding cycling. I currently have a 5 gallon planted tank (fluval spec V) which is generally doing well. It has been running for a few weeks. Unfortunately, I didn't have the opportunity to cycle...
  3. Tank Journals
    Whew, it's been a while since I have posted here! I have still been very active with the hobby, but went to Facebook for sometime due to ease of posting, but was frustrated with the lack of methods to document progression. To summarize my journey thus far, I started with a 15 gallon high tech...
  4. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I am new to this forum and to the hobby. I would like to start keeping fish but have been daunted by a number of factors. I live in a 1 BR NYC apt and do not have a lot of space. I am married and while my wife is willing to be a spectator, she is not willing to participate in this...

  6. Low Tech Forum
    Hi, I'm new. I just bought a 5 gallon tank for a betta and a nerite snail that I will be purchasing soon. I've had bettas before but in really small tanks, so I basically just had gravel and a fake plant. But now I'd love to have a planted tank for my betta and snail. Since it's my first planted...

    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...
  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi- This is my first post and I have a question about a snail population problem in my tank. I have done a lot of research on here, and I find that the loaches are the way to go to eat up the issue of my snails. The question I have is the type of loach. I'm thinking yo-yo? But then again I...
  11. Fish
    Hello- I am thinking of starting a small cichlid tank, maybe a pair or two. I need to find the smallest species around, and what the minimum tank size is for a pair and what the minimum tank size is for two pairs. On a budget, so I might have to save up a bit. Thanks...
