    What kind of live foods can i give them?
    What kind of live plants would be beat in an all SilverTip aquarium?

    Thanks for the help!

    Hey Byron! Thanks for your great advice! I'm not going to get the guppies and instead get 2 more rummys, 3 bronze corys, and 1 bolivian cichlids to go with my 3 pepper corys, 4 rummynosee tetras, bristlenose pleco, and 6 cardinal tetras. Thanks.

    You seem to be a real fish expert! I was wondering, in a 20 gal. tank could I keep 3 pepper corys, 1 bristlenose pleco, 4 rummynose tetras, 6 cardinal tetras, 2 female guppies, and 4 lemon tetras? Or is it to much? Right now I have the rummys, corys, pleco, and 3 cardinals. Thank you.

    That is way over limit; I will PM you in detail. Byron.

    Hi Byron
    In how much water i should keep my turtle?
    I have bought two red eared slider baby turtles and i am keeping them in 12 by 12 inch of fish tank and i was told by the shop keeper not to keep turtle in water, only the water should be till their legs to feel wet, keeping turtles in water will make their eyes blurred.So i have this question that whether i should keep them in water or in the way as the shop keeper has told me. Please help as i am very concerned about my turtles.

    Turtles need sufficient water to swim, but equally they must have a sufficient dry area (land, dry rock or wood) so they can get completely out of the water and dry. The light should be over the dry area for warmth, an incandescent bulb does this well, and will allow the turtle to dry fully. Byron.
