Agreed. About a dozen neons would be great in there.
I'd black out the background as well and the neon's colors will really pop!

I haven't heard of them fin nipping, but Plecos have been known to attach to the side of slow moving fish and suck on the slime coat.
Once they get a taste of it good luck getting them to stop!...
I have mine at room temp. I don't heat or cool the water in any way and it seems to work out fine.
Fishguy has it right on the aeration and oxygen levels. I attach the aerator to my powerhead on...
Just paint the dang thing!

My Orandas (I have 3 LARGE ones) rest quite a bit. I have one that wedges itself between one of my fake rocks and the filter inlet and sits like that for hours at a time.
Then I walk by with the...
Sorry, I couldn't believe no one posted this already! :hmm3grin2orange:
It's a good thing you don't like it then. For $5.00 I doubt that they would even let you have a string of it's poo...:hmm3grin2orange:
That being said, no way in this world I would pay that much...
What is the temp of your tank? I notice mine do that when the tank gets a little warm.
If you have done the proper research (which it looks like you have done) you already know that they need swimming space and not to over plant the tank.
You are arguing semantics here to justify a...
The simple answer to this question is yes.
As stated above, we have a MUCH greater capacity to adapt due to the fact that we have greater freedom to adapt.
Put us all in a 10' by 10' cage...
While I understand that the tanks may have been show tanks and the fish "looked" happy and healthy, that doesn't make it so. Many fish (we have ALL seen and read the stories) "survive" is some of...
I have to agree with Lab here. They are a very active species and really would be better off in a tank that's 48" long.
My LFS has been known to toss about 300 neons temporarily in a 20 gallon...
I think one major hurdle would be in this statement:
"then around the sides and back you'd place plactic dividers with small holes so there's about a half inch gap between the glass and dividers....
Deleted due to my realization that this was in the SALTWATER section and my experience is with FRESHWATER.
I'll leave it to the experts in saltwater to answer this.
Way to go! thumbs2:
The way I do it is I look at something and ask myself "have I used this in the last 12 months?" Then I ask myself "will I use this in the NEXT 12 months?" If the answer to...

I really doubt that this course of actions will liven the family picnic conversation. You should find a better way than having your father arrested and fined $25,000.00 - because THAT you cannot...
I'll refer back to a previous cat litter thread. I have already found the NUMBER ONE cat litter on the planet. It is superior in every way to traditional cat litters:

Yes, my study.
Call it a den, study, library, ect. It's where I go to relax, read, use my computer, or just get away from the whirlwind that is life and watch my tanks.
It's where I keep my...

No tanks in the bedroom, but in my Study (where I spend all of my free time)
1 -135 gallon
1 - 90 Gallon
1 - 29 Gallon
With Plans for 1 more 135 Gallon to go directly beside the other because...
I think I'd just play stupid and tell them that the fish store told you that your current tank IS a 20 gallon! I doubt that they would check that close.
Honesty is the BEST policy; it is however,...
It would depend on the size of your tank for the power filter.
Can't comment on the red lighting though. I've never seen it myself.
It seems very odd that a small amount of soap residue on a spoon could cause any lasting problems, but:
1. I would do a heavy water change of 50% or more
2. Remove your filter and rinse out the...
I think what you are referring to is the dusty, oily looking film on the water surface, correct?
That is usually caused by the oils breaking down from uneaten food and small dust particles that...
Always remember "DON"T PANIC"! :hmm3grin2orange:
Unless the water is no longer in your tank but is now on your floor, panic will only cause you to make poor decisions and usually will make...
Lemon Tetras are great fish - I have a bunch of them in with my Rainbows. Once they get their color back from decent food and water quality, they look great!
Excellent choice! thumbs2:
