You are very welcome. We are all here to learn and share our experiences. If it were not for what I learned here, my tanks wouldn't look nearly as nice as they do. I hope you will hang around long enough to share what you learn with someone else someday.

I wish you all the best on getting photo of the month. I have yet to win that. ha ha My picture taking skill are not so great but again... practice makes perfect. If I hang around long enough people might feel sorry for me and let me win. ha ha

Minimum five corys, making sure the gravel is smooth.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

i am all set up with all my tanks.i have a betta tank with a red crown tailed betta,black graval,an led light/bubble stone,and red and green hair grass. my other tank has a few decorations, 5 rasboras,and 3(was 4) arcutus cory.my final and most beautiful tank is a 75 gallon tank with my oscar,3 stubborn feeder goldfish that havent died,a common pleco,and 6 angel fish that have a heavily planted section of the tank to hide in.i am also thinking of another tank with only a zebra pleco in it.i have a 25 gallon tank that he should do fine in and i want to know what the best way to set it up is so he wont be stuck behind the filter all day.

As it notes in our profile [click on Zebra Pleco], some chunks of wood with tunnels will allow the fish to select its "home." Havin hding spos will relax it more, and it will come out, but realize that this is not likely to be often. Mine quickly learned when food was being added.
