    So I've been wanting to stock my 40 gallon with some RNTs and finally was able to get some from one of the LFS in my area. I was only able to get 7 and planned on having at least 16 in the tank with some Corys, Otos, and one of my King Bettas (less aggressive than the other one I have). Well...

    I have a Fluval Flex 15 gallon low tech planted tank with a dozen ember tetras and 4 cherry shrimp + snails galore. Tank is not quite a year old, but the parameters are pretty consistent. My tetras are gorgeous, thriving and growing, except for this guy.... He is a sweet little guy. He likes to...

    Hi there! This morning I was feeding my fish and noticed that one was seperate from the school. This ember tetra is seperate from the others, opening and closing it's mouth very rapidly, seems paler than the others, is mainly staying in place instead of swimming around the tank like the others...

    I want to get a pair of rams for my 29g tank. Now, I have 12 black neon tetras in that tank. Do you think I can add the pair into the tank? Or do I need to move some of the tetras to another tank?

    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...

    After a long absence on Planted Tank and a complete disassembly of all my tanks I decided Last October to take the big step of moving my tanks to the basement. With this move I was able to finally get my first 75g aquarium. My space allocated in the basement is 6x8' rectangle enough to...

    I need some help identifying a disorder. I have a small school of glowlight tetras that I have had for about 4 years now. Everything was great, until about a month ago. I noticed the lowest ranking member was hiding a lot, swimming erratically and losing weight. I thought it was due to...

    So my apartment is getting treated for bedbugs next week. I've been living here for almost 3 years with no problems, and now it feels like my life is over. But anyways, the landlord has exterminators coming in to do a spray treatment. My question is, how do I prepare my aquarium for this? To go...

    Hi all, I have a 65g moderately planted tank that's been running for about 2 months or so. Currently, I have 6 Cory Cats, 9 Neon Tetras, 1 Betta, and 9 Red-Eye tetras. All of the fish are pretty happy with each other, except the Red-Eyes keep nipping at each other. At first, I only had 6 of...

    Hi, I just wanted to tell you guys a weird story that happened many years ago. We had a few serpae tetras, one of which kept getting fatter. Instead of laying eggs, one day the tetra was dead, the belly ripped open, and 1 baby fish was swimming around. Perhaps a cm long. No eggs, no other...

    I have 10 Ember tetras in a 12 gallon tank (with some ramshorn snails..) would it be possible to keep neocaridina without problems? I would want the colony to grow. :nerd:

    Hi everyone! I'm hoping to set up an aquarium in the fall - it'll be my first time doing so. I'm so excited! But I need some advice. I've come up with a list of things I'll need, and I want to make sure it's going to work out - I'll include it in the bottom of the post - but I had a few...

    Here's the story; I have been stocking up my 30 gallon with glowlight tetras as of late, 4 at a time and once per week, up to 12 tetras. (The tank already had 3 corydoras, 2 Amano shrimp, and 1 nerite snail, so I didn't want to overstock...) One of the tetras began lately swimming *quite* oddly...

    Hi All, Need some advice on the best way to get rid of detritus worm infestation. Two weeks ago my last couple of zebra danios died abruptly in my 10g tank, which was heavily planted with java moss and other assorted aquatic plants, and has been established and running for nearly 2 years. Did...
