    Hey, so i’m thinking about getting a 55 gallon tank and stocking it with some peacocks and a redtail shark, but didn’t know how many peacocks to put into it? I’ve heard a lot about overstocking it and such and would like to try and make it more of a male oriented tank. All suggestions would help!

    Hey, so I have a 30 gallon fish tank and am looking to see if I should get more fish. I have a couple of live plants and drift wood with a pair of keyhole cichlid, a bristlenose pleco, and 6 serape tetra. I’ve seen online that the tetras might be happier in a bigger school and was wondering if...

    The future 55 gallon is going in the living room. The main goal of the tank is to have a planted freshwater tank. It would need to be stocked with beginner fish, but I would like them to be interesting or interactive. I want the tank to be easy to maintain for my parents, but also nice to look...

    Hi, I'm currently setting up a 30gal blackwater fl biotope, and I've run into a stocking dilemma. I'm for sure putting in 7-8 American Flagfish, and some sort of invert, but I'm torn between a blue crayfish(which I don't think will hurt the flagfish) or some olive nerites and grass shrimp. I...

    Hello, I plan on setting up a 6.3g bookshelf tank (23.6" x 6.7" x 9.4"). This tank will be running CO2 and be quite lush hopefully. I was thinking of putting a betta in it and I need some recommendations of a cleanup crew. This is a bit difficult since I know bettas are pretty feisty...

I've consulted a couple online stocking calculators and have gotten mixed results, so what would you say? Too much or...

    Not sure if this is the proper place for this. I'm wondering about the compatibility of Dwarf Gouramis and live plants. I’ve just received a 20 G tank as a present and am thinking about what kinds of fish to stock in it. It’s already up and running; I’ve added TSS and water + filter media from...

    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...
