    Hi everyone, I know this a common topic to find info about, but I just wanted to double check my future stocking in my new fish tank I'm setting up. The size of the tank is a bit odd: 26 x 19 x 12 inch. It's around 25g. (if calculated correct from cm and liters) It's a custom made tank to fit...

    Hello PTers, I have long been part of this forum, but I don't believe I've ever actually posted in here. So forgive me if I am posting in the incorrect area. With all of your suggestions, and long time reviewing, and a bit of trial and error (ok lots of errors), I have successfully been able...

    Hey there! Right now I’m working on my first ever planted tank! : ) My tank is an Aqua One AR850 which is 165 litres (43.58 gallons) and currently I’m just working on hardscaping. Once I add water + plants I plan to leave it that way for two months or more so I can cycle it, adjust the...

    Hey guys! Have a 60 gallon tank I started working on with my dad about three weeks ago. I've been slowly filling it up with hardscape and plants; seems to be coming in nicely. I was able to jump-start the bb with my 10gal tank and it was cycled within a week and a half. I have a shipment coming...

I currently have Java Fern, Crypt Parva, Crypt Wendtii, Crypt Lutea, one anubia, two aponogeton bulbs, and finally, DHG that I am hoping will carpet once I install CO2 in the next couple of weeks. In terms of fish...

    I have a ten gallon aquarium with three black devil snails, two mystery snails, one nerite snail, and seven red neon blue eye rainbow fish.

    Hey Everyone. First time poster here. I recently moved a Betta and (2) Cherry Shrimp into a 3.5 gallon tank and now have an open, decently planted 10 gallon tank. I was looking at adding a (3-4) Sparkling Gouramis and (1) Honey Gourami into the 10 gallon. I've read conflicting forums regarding...
  13. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So I was playing around with the AqAdvisor stocking calculator and found it says each of my tanks is overstocked. Some of the calculations seemed buggy (such as changing, or putting out the wrong percentage in the generated image) but I want to be sure I'm not actually overstocking my tanks...

    So I just purchased a 20 gallon tank from a co-worker and have only had one tank in the past, that tank was a 29 gallon so it was a bit bigger. Right now I am really in love with Panda Loaches and was going to attempt the following stocking. Panda Loaches x6 (for sure) Oto Cats x6 (maybe?)...

    I have a 20 gallon planted tank that has recently finished cycling. The tank is lit 10 hours a day by 34 watts of LED lighting, is kept at 78 degrees and has a neutral pH. Unfortunately, a bunch of thread algae has started to take over and I'm worried it will inhibit my plant growth. I was...
