  1. Beginner Freshwater
    Okay, so I'm new here and I'm not sure how everything works, so forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong area! Anyway, so last week, my mom bought me a couple of fish for my new tank that I have. There was no tag at the pet store for what species they were, so I have no idea if they have special...

    Hi, I am having some recent issues with my 2 Marbled Angels. I have a 29gal tank, 2 angels, 5 glo tetras, and 2 red minor tetras. Water conditions are within normal limits. Recently, my 2 angles started picking on one another. I noticed them nudging each others sides of their body. They...

    Hey! I'm new to the forum, but not to fish keeping! :) I currently have a 2g betta garden, 37g planted tank, and a 75g freshwater wise. I also have a 72g reef tank and an at least 60g (need to measure it) undecided aquarium. I'm excited to be apart of this forum and expand my knowledge! ~ Madi

    :idea:So, its winter. Unfortunately i haven't been able to get a hold of any peat. But, i do have a few bags of dried Spanish moss, meant for frogs. I've scoured 4 pages of google, and all the threads are the same, people trying the Spanish moss they find in there yard, not the already dried...

    Hello! Last night, I noticed one of my guppies acting strangely - hiding from everyone else, and his form seemed a bit droopy (ragged tail). I took him out and placed him in a 1 gal heated emergency tank to be safe, then gave him a drop of MelaFix. Now here's the dilemma: my husband says I...

    Hello! I'm currently on the East coast being battered by Sandy in MA. Luckily my power hasn't gone out (it hasn't since I first set up my 15 gal tank two years ago!), but I'm curious as to how you all plan ahead for outages. I just bought a battery-powered aerator, but ideally I think some type...

    Today I noticed one of my bala sharks isolating. His mouth is gone and there is an open sore where his mouth was. All the fish in my tank are 3 inches or smaller. The balas will be moving into my friends bigger tank when they get bigger. What can I do to help him? Is this gonna affect my other fish?

    My catfish seriously crawls into a hole in one of my decorations and doesn't come out until lights out. I feed lightly twice a day. Once at 9 am once at 7:30 pm. All the other fish tear up the flakes and I drop in a couple sinking chichlid pellets for the blood parrot. Sometimes if he's lucky...

    Hey guys, I've recently got into the whole aquarium hobby after really enjoying taking care of my betta, Walter. I've been keeping fish for a few months now and have a couple questions. My current tank is five gallons with Walter, a ghost shrimp (probably adding more soon to replace the...

    I got a 55 gallon tank. Set it up for freshwater, cycled it and it is now stocked and decorated perfect. Today I got a 36 gallon bowfront tank. Wife wants a saltwater tank w live rock and stuff like that. Would the 36 gallon be big enough to start the saltwater setup? Or should I move the 55...

    . So i have a 55 gallon I am getting ready to cycle and set up once that's done I want to put Rusties and Lemons in it but i want to make sure a few things. Will they get along? How many of each would be enough to keep them happy but leave me understocked? Is there an Algea eater or snail i...
  15. Beginner Freshwater
    My tank is in it's 4th week of cycling and I am just looking through different fish and I thought I would get some opinions on what kind of fish I could get if I wanted a small community tank. I live in a dorm right now so I can't have a tank larger than the 10 gallon I have, so what kind of...

    I had a pair of beautiful little platies when I had first started my 5 gallon tank, they stayed together for about a month, then the male suddenly died. About a month ( give or take) after his death, she gave birth to 6 little fry. Sadly, only three survived, but they are now very healthy happy...

    I'm wanting to get a 65 gallon tank and was curious about lighting it. I was rather startled by the high prices of aquarium light hoods. Then, when looking at florescent lights on google products, I stumbled across these fluorescent flood lights...
