Looks like a good way to get rid of some of the initial clouding.
I did NOT realise one had to clean sand the first time I used some, so just threw a bag of builder's sand into my pond. 4 days of...
Good plan, I'll see if I can grab some at the hardware store in the morning. I'm sure the girls will be fine another night (of course, now I'm exciting that I get to think of a new tank plan. Will...
That's a sad loss, I'm sorry :(
That's a good point -- they are in the smaller planted tank, as I've been wanting to keep it cycled since my betta died. It's on my desk, and I love it, I love watching them.
Perhaps now they have...
Boooo, I thought that might be the case.
I might see if she has an older female I could have. Or perhaps she can take both my girls though that makes me a bit sad :(
I spent ages arranging my new plants in my community tank, and almost all my shrimp died.
Found out the plants has been treated with copper-based pesticides prior to shipment :( Broke my heart.
After I grew out some platies for my friend, I ended up keeping two females. I have had them since January approx. In the last few weeks, one has started harassing the other - she chases and nips and...
I've only ever had fully submersible heaters - I stick them diagonally for ease of changing the temp (so I don't have to put me hand all the way in the tank!).
Have seen heaters on the floor of...
Looking good -- and the reassurance of a new tank makes the project more exciting and less apprehensive in my opinion!

Where I work we have an artificial lake and a few natural lakes. 30 years ago someone released goldfish into the artificial lake, which is luckily not connected to any others. They are...

And I almost forgot to say WELCOME!!
You will learn so much on this forum. Never be intimidated, everyone is so friendly -- in a few weeks time you won't ever look at fish keeping in the same way...

To put it plainly, if you DON'T change the water daily in that tank, your fish will die horrible deaths. Not a nice thing for your 4 yo to witness. Perhaps the lesson here is to look before one...
I had ( :( ) a killer betta, but he accepted my snails - sure he'd go poke them every now and then, but they're used to being prey so they can withdraw quickly enough. He also accepted two otos; I...
That is too sad. Goes to show how difficult it can be to get things right, even with much expertise.
Ans there's me worrying about a few guppies and cherry shrimp!
I would start with crypts, java fern, anubias and some moss!
The crypts will easily take in the gravel -- if the tank has been running a while be careful during planting as you will be whirling up...
Definitely check around the tank - stranger things have happened ... However, your lovely large cory gang could probably eat him overnight if he died and settled at the bottom. I rarely find more...

I have no luck in breeding guppies, either. I think I am the only person in the world who cannot get them to survive; however it suits me fine. I get on average one new adult guppy every 2-3 months....

I think you have misunderstood the cycling process. Again, it's understandable if you took advice from people who just wanted to sell you things ...
HOW did you try to cycle your tank?
Crooked guppy lady is still with us and eating well :22:
Against the odds, I would say! I have decided that she will stay in the smaller tank when the platies come back and the others move out. She...
My assassin snails have "hair" :D
Nothing dares approach them to clean it off. It's the only green algae in the tank *touch wood* - I think it's brilliant!

As above, sounds like new tank syndrome
-- unfortunately pet shops do not advise very well on the cycling process. I made this classical mistake myself and had to do a fish-in cycle. I didn't lose...
Sad times ...
I hate it when the fish are not perfect!
Hello - long time no see!
Everything going well in my aquaria. Since Bael's unexpected death while I was away in February that tank has returned to being my well-planted quarantine tank. Yesterday...
In the UK a small box of "betta" food costs the same as a normal box of normal flakes. Considering how little one feeds, larger boxes go out of date long before they're finished anyway. I don't...
Yep, all moss!
