    Hello, I saw this self cleaning tank on the internet a few days ago and I love the concept for keeping a beta at work. However, I'm worried about the size and shape of the tank. It is only 1/2 gallon of water. It would probably need a full water change every day but I wanted to hear what the...

    I have an Aqueon 10 gallon tank I keep endlers and cherry shrimp in. I recently bought a hood for it, as the one it came with was mostly glass, and it broke. So I bought a new hood for it, but it came without the lights. I can't seem to find the lights without buying a new hood as well...

    Hello! :) Last week I got a 10 gallon MarineLand tank It's filtered and has a heater. It has 2 silk plants and pink gravol stone things. It contains 2 african dwarf frogs, 2 red columbian tetras, and 1 Veil Tail Betta. How often should I clean this tank? And how the heck do I clean it??

    So, yesterday I did my first tank cleaning/water change. I scrubbed the tank with an algae pad, suctioned the gravel with my hose, & did a 15% water change. I noticed when I was done the water was cloudy and there was gunk floating around in my tank. The fish swam around gobbling up some bits...

    I was in my wifes back shed with her dad looking for a trimmer when I found a 55g aquarium. I inquired about it and found that it had been there for 7 years. Full of spiders and dirt I took it anyway. I set it up on a table I had that seemed sturdy enough. I took some pictures as I am very...

    My male Odessa Barb which I have had for a little over a year has started to swim upside down and his tail fin looks in rough shape. He also looked like he was coughing up some kind of white powder or something. I had a Betta in there that ended up with dropsy a couple months back, he was...

    Was wondering if anyone who had a regular 45 gallon fish tank. Could pull out a tape measure and give me exact measurements to the 1/16th an inch. Putting it in to a wall and not doing traditional trim work either. Much appreciated.

    Hi everyone! I've just installed a new heater into my tropical tank and there's some water condensation inside the actual glass part. Just wondering if this is normal? Thanks!
  17. Freshwater Aquarium Equipment
    Hello. I'm relatively new to keeping fish (well, at least new to doing a good job at it). One thing that's always been a problem in my tanks is that my fish tend to get sucked up in the filter. So, I thought I might try using a smaller filter to remedy this. However, I do not know if this is...
