    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 everyone, I have a 40 breeder that has been set up for about a year and a half (although I moved about 9 months ago). It is pretty well planted, although I probably wouldn't call it 'dense'. It has various anubias, various crypts, Java moss, Java fern, temple plant, and a stemmed plant that...

    My 10 gallon aquarium is just about done cycling and I was looking for suggestions on which fish I should get. I definitely want to put in some indostomus crocodilus and I am looking for a nice school or shoal for my tank. I was considering either Norman's lamp-eyes, chilli rasboras...

Right now I have the following fish: 1 - Bala Shark 2 - Siamese Algie Eaters 1 - Bolivian Ram 1 - Rummy nose tetra 3 - Glass cats 2 -...

    I have 8 neon tetras and 3 otos in a 30G, but my parents would like me to add a "bigger" fish. I don't know if it's bc they are getting older and are having trouble seeing the fish (I gave up seeing my otos anyways) but they are very adamant about it. I'll probably add more neon tetras but can...

    Hi everyone! Now first off, I've got to say I'm the worst beginner for an aquarium. I'm using a 7-Gal vertical tank from my parent's storeroom that has iron parts holding up the corners (aka-rimless). I originally thought less was more until I stumbled across this site and all the forums. So...

    Hi TPT Forum I'm new to the hobby this past year. I went from a 10 G starting last May (in which all my guppies died) to a 28G community tank with some first plants. The fish and plants are now staying alive! (I also have a 20G ACFrog tank). So I'm so excited about this new hobby, I purchased a...

    Hello- I currently am cycling this 2.5 gallon coldwater tank. It stays at about 68-70 F. I will be adding a Red Sea Deco Art Nano Filter sometime in the near future. So, I am trying to decide what to stock it with. Just a pair or maybe three on the small side is all I want. Can you guys...

    I've been thinking of putting discus in my 120 gallon tank. Some of them look super cool. I have 2 questions #1 should I get one or many and should they all be added at the same time or should i stagger them? #2 would they get along with my current fish? 2 pretty large bala sharks 3 siamese...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to this and its safe to say that my knowledge is pretty limited at this point (go easy on me). I figured I would start small, with a 10 gallon tank. After setting it up, I finally stocked it with a few fish. I currently have 3 fire barbs and had 10 neon tetras...

    I saw some one on here with a 40-50 gallon heavily planted tank, with over 80 fish in it. No one seemed to explode on him, so I was wondering if this is normal? I have a 38 Gal tank, with 19 fish in it. (10 are 2 different tetra schools). The old rule used to be basicly around this ratio. With...
