Thanks for all the feed back!
I have also found with water changers that the suction for cleaning gravel is weak. I am lucky, my 55 is right next to the door for the porch, so I just suck on...
Recently, the topic of water changes came up when discussing stress in relation to your fish tank.
My arguement is that larger water changes (50%) every 2-3 weeks is less stressful on the fish...
Its certainly not the ghost shrimp, and 2" is pretty big for that type of shrimp. If you can, take a picture and post it for us to evaluate.
Also, that is a pretty big angel, and I have known...
Hey there man, I do like an blank slate for stocking.
Even though they are very common, its tough to beat the attractiveness of 12-15 Neon Tetras in a planted tank.
Also Corydoras seem to...
HAHAHAHA! Wow man, I opened this thread and saw 20 gallon tank and 3 raphael cats and almost blew my coffee all over the monitor.
Unfortunately a 20 gallon is not suited for many fish, its just...
I have some peppered cories and they have done well for me.
I have been told that the albinos are blind. Sorry if that is mis information.
My 55 gallon does not have a cover and most of the time I lose about half a gallon per day due to evaporation. I thought that was pretty insane, but its consistent.
I lose much less in my 20...
I started off with one clown pleco who was painfully shy. But he has shown a different side twice now and its interesting how aggressive he can be. He has his favorite spot in the tank, if the...
Here is my latest stocking, I will review my profile and update if needed:
10 Neon Tetras
10 Black Neon Tetras
8 Lamp Eye Tetras
8 Glo Light Tetras
3 Cherry Barbs (I know school is...
Maybe this should go in the announcments section?
Between my two tanks, my 55 gallon and my 20 Long, I have not experienced any disease or fish death since Christmas.
My stocking is most likely...
I love gold barbs, I hope you get some serious enjoyment out of those fish.
Albino Cories are blind....so that are an exception with Corydoras, they are NOT schooling. But they are also rather...
The only species that I have found that thrives on Algae alone is pond snails, and trust me, you do NOT want those things in your tank. However, there are some species that will suppliment thier...
If I may be permitted to calmly defend my suggestions.
I have two tanks, a 55 and a 20-Long. both of them are freshwater community tanks and both of them hae rainbow sharks that are very...
I have been keeping Tiger barbs for a while now, and it seems the only constant is how unpredictable they are.
I started off with 10 of them in a 55 gal. they completely ignored my tetras and...
I have a 55 planted tank, and I started out with a similar stocking plan. I concur with the other folks, the tiger barbs will make life difficult for everyone else in the tank. They killed a lot of...

Contrary to some folks, I have seen and kept cories in groups of 1-4 and they have all thrived.
For a 10 gallon tank, I think a pair of cories is fine. If you add a school of 8 rasboras, and...
I started this hobby about a year ago, and i have tried a handful of plants...
- Anubias Nana
- Anubias Congensis
- Java Fern
- Moss Ball
- Giant Hair Grass
- Dwarf Hair Grass...
I think some corydoras would be wonderful for that tank. They do well in sand, they dwell at the bottom and help keep food leftovers from fouling the water. You could do a single school of 6-8...

I am not able to view the video right now, but if Indian Woods is right and they need high oxygen levels, then you may want to put a bubbler in your tank and drop the temp a few degrees. Could just...
I never see him eat and is very lethargic. but its been that way for months. I expected a death a long time ago but he lingers. Not sure what to do about it.
It happened to my grandmother haha!
I do see them scavenging the bottom quite often, however they also have increased their color to a very bright red, and molted twice since I go them.
I understand, its been difficult to capture a picture of him lately. its the best I could do.
if it helps, the base of the plant on the right in th NOV pic is the same plant base thats i nthe...
Here are some pictures, what do you think?
Have any of you ever witnessed fish getting smaller in your tank. I dont mean empty tummies, but the size of the fish both length and girth shrinking.
I feel like I have witnessed this twice now,...
