    Hi everyone! I was recently scrounging around and found what I believe to be a 20g fish tank!! the sealant is pretty messed up, so I'll be picking up some aquarium sealant or non-toxic silicon today.

    I have a 20L with an aquafin 40 and I just picked up a 10 gallon that came with an aquafin 20 filter. From what I can find the best way to get my bacteria going would be to run the new filter cartridge in my old tank behind it's filter before I put it into the new tank, does this make sense...

    So I have constantly breeding Mollies. (like within a day of the females giving birth the males are trying to breed again) So my thought is get a second tank and put my males in one and females in the other. So the question is it is bad to have just males in a tank? Will their mating urges...

    I'm waiting for the next PetCo "Dollar per Gallon" sale to get a bigger tank - something in the 55 gallon range, I'm thinking. By that time, my Albino African Clawed Frog, Grindylow, will be happy for the extra living space. I've always loved frogs - the way they move is just so cool to watch...

    I picked up a 37 gallon tank from a friend of mine and am looking for some advice on fish that live well together. I am considering just getting a couple oscars and then getting a 55 or bigger next year, but on the other hand I'm feeling a nice eclectic mix of angel fish, a few cichlids of some...

    Hi all, I'm still pretty new to the fish world. We set up our 20 gallon freshwater tank in early August. It has a thick layer of black gravel, a small cave ornament, and three plastic plants.
