    Hi all, my sparkling gourami lost her pectoral fin to what I suspected was fin rot, as I saw some dark areas on the ends of her tail fins as well. The fin will crumble off and try to regrow, but grows deformed and with extra fleshy stuff and it's been like this for at least 2 months! She eats...

    Hi, currently working on a 10 gallon planted tank, which I think is coming along nicely. Right now it has some guppy fry and 2 zebra nerite snails, but the fry will be getting a new home soon.

My uncle gave it to my brother who threw out the canister filter that came with it. Now that I have it I'm planning on going low tech with it. The dimensions are 24"w x...

    I recently bought 3 ~1cm Trichopsis pumila or Trichopsis schalleri - currently in my QT tank with some cherry shrimp (who are in a breeding net to protect them). I don't know which species I have, I can only be certain I don't have T. vittata as those have a stripe by the anal fin which my fish...

    I am thinking about getting some Sparkling Gouramis for my 10 gallon. So far there is no fauna in it. If I were to do them, how many could happily live in a 10 gallon? Any other tank mates you would recommend to go with them? Thanks!

    Alright, so I'm only in the planning stages of my 5 gallon planted nano tank. I hope I don't overwhelm anyone with my mass of questions but I refuse to build a tank without doing my homework first and creating the best possible environment for the plants and fish. Just for reference, I'm...
