So, I started off with a 10 gallon for goldfish from before I knew what I was doing. Got rid of them. I acquired a 3 gallon nano tank that I used for guppy fry and no I'm going to put a shrimp in. Then, a 15 gallon hospital tank with a double stand. And now I'm getting my 20 gallon display tank I want to put glowlight rasboras and a wild betta in and do a planted set up. The ten gallon is going to be guppies and platys. Their fry will most likely become food for the betta. Oh what an addictive hobby

I think that I'm just not supposed to have bettas. I feel like I'm the one killing them somehow. So, I'm just going to do the humane thing and not get any more. Thanks for your help guys. I might pop in if we need to ask something about the tetra or the shrimp, but I won't be saying anything more about my own bettas.

We got a powder-like fish food geared toward tiny babies (Hikari First Bites) and well... They
I was wondering if anyone know's what's wrong with my blue discus? He/she has over the past couple of days developed a big white lump on it's back and I have no idea what to do.
Does anyone have any advice?
I know what most, and rightfully so, will say about this in regards to the chosen adhesive... use a silicone aquarium safe glue.
Now here me out, I understand, that is in the plans for the future when this experiment is found to be successful and I upgrade to a much larger tank. This is just trial and error.
I have read several times that people out there have found it successful to use hot glue guns to adhere things that go into their aquariums. I already own a hot
