  1. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    Hi everyone! New here. I have a 10 gallon tank, and soon planning on moving my danios and ADF’s to a 29 gallon tank. I have 3 glofish danios (who are known to be fin nippers, could be due to size of current tank or their nature). I also have 2 African dwarf frogs. The 2 species get along great...
  2. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    My father hasn't been using his 100 gallon tank for years so instead of throwing it out, I decided to make it more colorful and lively again. I will have guppies in the tank as well as shrimps and snails. I am also thinking about cardinal tetras and rummy nose tetras, but I heard they are not as...
  3. Advanced Freshwater Discussion
    hello, i recently got a 60 gal tank and I'm getting a bgk in a couple of weeks after its set up. (don't worry, this is a temporary setup until i get my 150 gal in about 4-5 months ) That being said, i wanted to keep some discus with him, maybe 4? But i read a lot that they aren't compatible...
  4. Catfish
    Hi, all! I just started my first tank a few months back. It is a 10 gallon freshwater tank and currently has an Emerald Cory Cat, a shrimp, three plants, a medium piece of aquatic wood, three small moss balls, and two little houses! I would like to get more cory cats as I have learned on here...

    Hi there! I have been taking care of guppies and platys for about 6 months now (they are my daughter's and I kinda took over because I became fascinated with them lol) I am now interested in starting another tank for myself. I have been researching but I want to run this mix by you and get...
  6. Cichlids
    It's been a harrowing process trying to figure out what I want in my tank, and my husband finally had enough and surprised me with 8 angelfish (originally I didn't want them, but I should probably listen to him more lol). They're still just babies, about 1.5 inches long, so ive got time to wait...

    I have a 20 gallon tank (tall) that is ready for fish. Except I dont have any fish in mind. Only one in mind is Celestial Pear Danios, if I get those I want them to be comfortable wth there mates. I want some Top, Middle, and bottom dwellers. Any advice is accepted. Even personal stockings not...
  8. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Hey! I'm planning on getting a betta for my 5.5 gallon once it's all cycled, and I was wondering if I could put a snail or shrimps in there too? I was thinking a snail from the nerite family (so I wouldn't have to worry about it breeding.) Any recommendations, or is the tank too small for...
  9. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Hello, I just cycled a new 30G freshwater tank. I added three Bolivian rams today and one bumblebee catfish. So far so good. When they are acclimated after 10 days or so I was wanting to get 2 or three more fish. I would like to plan ahead and I can't decide what kinds to get. I was wanted a...
  10. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    Hi guys, I'm setting up a new tank and had a few questions. I've never had a tank with very many (if any) live plants as I've always had more aggressive fish who like to rip them out and eat/destroy them. This week I'm setting up a new tank, it's 40-55g (I'll post exact size later when I get a...

    I have a two tanks...I just had to separate my three sparkling gouramis from one because I didn't realize they'd kill shrimp that are the same size they are LOL. So they are in jail right now and I'm wanting to put them in my other tank. The other tank has two female platies and two cory cats...

    I'm looking for a lot of information on Reedfish and dinosaur bichirs as we're looking into both fish, but reedfish moreso. I found what I consider to the best information on Wiki and I know that's not the best source. I found some information on Liveaquaria but they always seem to badly...

    Hi. I have a gourami that just lost his platy tankmate. I would like good suggestions for new tankmates. My tank is a 10 gallon, planted. Gourami seems pretty happy! Also - I'd like advice on the feeding of the gourami - I've read they need a varied diet. Thanks!

  16. Characins
    I'd like to ask for some advice on this. I recently received my Lepo from a family member and he is 14 years old, shy to me and my family, but still a feisty little (big) thing. I've had him for almost two weeks, and on the advice of a fish keeper in Petsmart, who had one of her own, I put in...

    Can I add 2 dwarf gouramies with 2 kiss and some scalares? Thanks
  18. Anabantids
    Hi, I am slowly stocking my 29 gallon freshwater tank. I had 5 serpae tetras, but after some advice from this forum, I re-homed them so that I could have a dwarf powder blue gourami. My tank currently has one male gourami, and 2 platties. My tank has 2 rock formations, (one tall and one...

    Hello all I have a 30 gallon tank with a bristlenose pleco and six skirt tetras. Originally we were using the skirts to cycle the tank but now we want to keep them (we feel bad making them go back to the fish store--?). We also want neon tetras. Is it okay to have both? Assuming it is...
