    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...

    New to the forum, not so new to the hobby. I've got a planted 40B, very low tech but heavily filtered. I've been running this tank for 6 years now. It started as an apisto breeder but I was too successful and stopped after 5 broods. It was then turned into a plant propagation tank for 4 years. I...

    I'm going to be setting up a new 75g soon and looking for opinions on some stocking. Right now I have two fish for sure that will be going in and that is an angelfish that I have had for 6 years and a Bolivian ram that is 3 years old. Ideas I have so far are a "fancy" pleco, some kind of...

    Hey all, I have a 50 gallon tank that I recently picked up and I've got about 20 blue neocaridina shrimp coming in and I'm looking for some suggestions for a large school(s) of smaller colorful fish to add to the tank that would really appreciate all the extra room. I've planted this tank, and...

    My 15 has been cycling for a few weeks now. Water parameters look good, and I used filter media from my already-cycled tank. I plan to run the marineland penguin 150b in there, with 1 peppered Cory (it's what I already have), 3 panda corys, 2 rams, and 10 neons. According to the aqadvisor thing...

    Hey all, I've been slowly working on a new project lately, and even though it's going to be quite awhile til I start adding stock, I'd like to get some ideas, so I can build with some creatures in mind. I'm planning on a riparium, with the water a few inches below the top of the tank. I plan to...

    Hey all, I just picked up a free 20 gallon high tank for free on craigslist, and I have no idea what to do with it! Looking for any suggestions for plants, hardscape and live stock! I'm also looking to build my own filter (I think it's fun haha) so any ideas/experience with that would be...

    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 s 2.5g, probably only around 2g with with filter and heater. I was wondering what I could stock in this, I can't work out why, but cherry shrimps were a no go, they would last a few months and then die. I currently have a zebra nerite snail (Errol) who is living happily. I wondered...

    Hi! I wouldn't say that I am new to the hobby, but I would say I still have a crud ton to learn. I currently have a 5g betta tank, and a 10g community tank. I am mostly focused on plants, setting up DIY co2 systems, and just learning how to do things the right way. Recently I bought a 45...
