    So I have 60 cm or 2 feet long by 35 cm or 14 inch deep tank on a cabinet of the same size. Now I actually want to replace this tank with one that is slightly deeper, 40 cm or 16 inches. Do I need to replace the cabinet as well or can I just place a 2 inch thick plate of wood on top of this...
  2. Fish
    Hello, I am planning on purchasing some Otocinclus catfish and I'm setting up a quarantine tank for them. My concern is that my usual hospital tank is only 16L (4 gallons). Would this be large enough to house 10 catfish for 4 weeks? Or do I need to set up a bigger tank? TIA (Ps. I have...

    Hi everyone, I’m a complete newbie to aquarium keeping so I apologise in advance for my lack of knowledge here. I’ve recently acquired an aquanano tank and have been accumulating what I think is biofilm on the surface of the water. I’ve had the tank for around 3 months now and I’m yet to put...

    Local pick up only, located in WA state, zip 98012. I will be graduating soon and am currently looking at Master's programs abroad. I likely won't be able to set up any fish tanks in the near future and although I'd love to keep this tank and stand, it won't be working out and frankly, I...

    I love my Fluval Spec V, I have two of them, but the middle of the lids have a hole where the light hovers not far above. I've never had a problem with this until today. Although I've had bettas (betta splendens) for years, today a newly acclimated betta (a wild betta/mahachai) apparently...

    So I have been having some issues with algae in my 5 gallon nano tank The algae is dark brown/black and appears to be eating away at the plants. I've been having this issue since I first set up the tank (originally using a Walstad style topsoil blend, currently using ecocomplete) with the...

    I haven't posted to this forum in years, but an email reminded me that this forum is still alive. I have recently thinned out my plants in my 55 G acrylic tank and restocked with new fish and it occurred to me that my tank is getting long in the tooth. Researching the Internet, I started...

    I'm leaving the hobby after a few years of delaying getting back into it, which came after a few years of diving back into the planted tank world :) It's tough to get rid of the last of it - I sold my 75g last year and held onto my 22g "just in case" I changed my mind. But it's just been taking...

    Today at the store, I bought this glass terrarium on the spur of the moment thinking I might try to figure out if I can use it as a fish bowl for a betta. Think it's doable and possible to use live plants? I've never something like this with low light plants, but thought I might give it a try...

    I've just started looking at 10G tanks to setup an aquarium again in my home and was wondering what tanks or kits people would recommend?

    Hello!! I am writing desperately. I have had a planted freshwater tank now since last September (so about 1.5 years now). Dimensions of my acrylic tank are 35"x15", and 15" deep. Water parameters are good/normal. First, I had a Current LED Plus Pro that cost me an arm and a leg (I still own...

    I could use a bit of advice. I've got a 72 gallon bow front tank and stand that I used to run as a planted tank I've neglected for a long time. The tank needs to be descaled pretty badly, the light fixture is completely dead, and the stand could probably "stand" to be replaced, so I'm at the...
