  3. 29 Gallon Tank Makeover!

    Freshwater Journals
    I previously started my 29 gallon tank with Black Gravel. I then found it too dark, and ended up adding orange and purple in it. It was okay for a while but then it just began to look hideous. That grouped with the Multi-color Glo-Fish Tetras, the tank just had WAY TOO MUCH going on! :shock...

  8. GloFish and Zebra Danios not getting along.

    Cyprinids and Atherinids
    Last week I got 5 glofish, and 4 of them died. I let my last fish be alone for about 4 days, but felt like it was stressing him out so i got him 2 regular zebra danio tank mates. One of them is rather large, and the other is about the same size as my glofish. I'm assuming the large one is a...

    For the past two days, one of my danios, a green glofish, has been lethargic and not eating very much. He is not swimming with the rest of the shoal and is just staying at the top of the tank and always moving his mouth. I was thinking it could maybe be ammonia posioning? The ammonia isn't very...

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I have a tank of four zebra danios, one being a Yellow GloFish. As of the last two days or so, he's been looking pretty sickly. He only swims to the top left and right parts of the tank, and seems to stay there all day - he never socializes with the other fish. The other three regular zebra...
