    What are some good stocking choices for a 30 gallon? I was thinking a dozen zebra danios and a bristle nose pleco, but I'm not too sure if that's too much bio load or something.
  2. Beginner Planted Aquarium
    Hey guys, I recently ordered a 48G tank which I'm planning to turn into a community tank. I have a long time before I start stocking but I'm trying to put together some rough plans for fish and was curious if anyone had some input for these initial ideas. The tank will be semi-heavily planted...

    I have • 1 clown pleco • 4 neon tetras • 6 albino corys • 2 pea puffers (haven’t shown much aggression to others and have had for a year) I’m liking how honey gouramis look but unsure if I should just get one or if I’d be able to get a couple without any serious aggression towards eachother...
  4. Cichlids
    Hello, I a currently cycling what I believe is a 39 gallon tall tank. I've added a picture for reference. I am wanting to do a small community tank with a focus on an Electric Blue Acara. My goal is one of them since they get large, a single larger school, and preferably a mid size (6-8")...

    I have the fluval flex 57L (15 US gallons) tank with no modifications and would like to stock it with 2 bristlenoses (which I have already), 10 neon/flame tetras and 3-5 cherry red shrimp. Would the pump and filter be sufficient or do I need an upgrade?

    I've been bashing my head trying to settle on what nano-fish to put into my 30L, I'm in the process of cycling my tank so I've time to contemplate, my water is hard my local water is 280ppm, my base readings pre-cycle are as follows; PH-7.4 GH-16 OD KH-6 OD NO3- 175PPM NO2-5PPM CL2-0PPM...
  7. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    This is my first ever tank as I'm new to this hobby, but I've done loads and loads of thorough research to prepare myself. The only info I haven't been able to find is how exactly I could stock my tank, as there are so many different variables that go into decisions like this. I have a 10 gallon...

    So, my cousin might be upgrading one of her tanks from a 36 gallon bowfront to... something bigger come spring. If she does, she says she'd be willing to give me the old one. I was looking into what I might want if that happens and this is what I've come up with, please feel free to tell me if...

    I currently have a 10 gallon, 5 gallon, and 2.5 gallon tanks spread across my life. Thinking of getting a 30 gallon for Christmas. I can't help but feel that AqAdvisor is underestimating the stocking. I'd like a mix of schooling fish. 2 orange dwarf crayfish 2 nerite snails 12 zebra danio...
  10. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Hello! I am very new to this forum and am looking for some information regarding a 55gal tank I am setting up. After much research, I have hopefully settled on a Peacock cichlid tank. However, I am finding conflicting answers regarding stocking and I am looking for some straight forward...
  11. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Hi all, so I am about to set up my new 190L/50gal high tech planted tnak, with a 60l/15gal sump. I am adding 10 praecox rainbows, 6 otocinclus, and then I am unsure of anything else. I can't keep shrimp as they are illegal in New Zealand, but I was wondering if anyone has any cool ideas of...
  12. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    Hi, I've had a 55 gallon tank and a 30 gallon tank for around 2 years now. In the 30 gallon I have 12 African Cichlids, and a single tiny one on its own in a breeding tank. In the 55 gallon one i have 6 Cichlids, 5 males and one female. I also have a catfish. (Yes i understand that I have way...
  13. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Hi! I’m starting my first tank since I was about 5 years old and I’ve been researching extensively on proper set up, fishless cycling, fish care, etc. My fishless cycle is almost complete and it’s time to consider stocking. I was thinking of stocking with a purple “Glo Shark” (GloFish’s albino...
  14. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    Hello everyone! Probably nobody remembers me anymore... I kind of abandoned the hobby when I started studying, so I haven't had an aquarium for years. But I really miss having fish, even if I don't miss the maintenance, lol. Fishkeeping is good for the soul. So naturally, I've started dreaming...
  15. Beginner Planted Aquarium
    Working on my first planted tank - squee! Going to stick with some simply, hardy plants like anubias, java fern, and java moss, I think. What I really need help with is deciding on fish. Currently I'm planning on: 3-5 cory cats 5-7 cardinal tetras I'm interested in: betta (love a betta in the...
  16. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I searched for hours to find something but I really am struggling, so I signed up for the forums and am hoping someone can help me. I already have rather high Ph where I live. It's actually above 8.0 and it's making choosing species pretty difficult. I recently acquired a 46 gallon bowfront and...
  17. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Hallo TFK Forums! I hope I'm posting this in the right place... I'm a new member but not a new fishkeeper, although I would consider myself more moving from beginner to intermediate. I've kept livebearers before (platies, swordtails, mollies) which bred, of course, harlequin rasboras, various...

    Hi everyone! I'm in the process of cycling my first freshwater tank (yep, google took me down the rabbit hole and I learned alllll about fishless cycling) and I have some questions I hope some more experiences aquarists will be able to help me with. For starters, I have a 20g high with...
  19. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I currently own a 29 gallon (approx.) aquarium, and am looking to soon upgrade to a 60-75 gallon. I've done some research on cichlids and rainbows and am thinking I kind of want to go in that direction. However, I'll most likely be moving some, if not all, fish from my existing aquarium into the...
  20. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    My 29 gallon tank is cycled and I'm planning on adding fish tomorrow. I was thinking 8 zebra danios, 6-8 cherry barbs, and 8 bronze cories sound good. I was wondering if I should add them all at once or little by little. I've heard both but mostly little by little. I want to avoid mini cycles...
