    My 12G had been established for a good while now and I would like to add more to it than just CRS just to have more "movement". Currently I only have 18 CRS in that tank and compared to its bio-load, it is not very much. I would like something that has good contrast not only to the CRS, but to...

    Ok so I have a Jack Dempsey in a 55 with some african cichlids. Hes grown to about 7" now so I just got him a 75 gal tank but was wondering what other fish I might put in with him. Has anyone had any success with ottos or corys? He gets in minor tussles with my adult Africans but doesn't mind...

    So this is the story. I have a 20 gal, now only home to two female guppies after they attacked and killed both the male and my hope for babies and it also is home to my Peppy, a peppered cory. I have set up a 30 gal (after which the females killed the male guppy, great encouragement huh?) and I...
