So I am getting a new 100 gallon tank from a friend tommorow. (along with a stand and hood thankfully)

I disagree that swords are ment for large tanks. I have one in my 20g and it is quite large. When looking at the tank it takes up about 1/3 of it. Fish enjoy swimming between its leaves and is a good...
an Amazon sword should do fine.
other options could be anubias nana, or java fern.
sorry on the late reply.

seems everyone likes the greens, i have a few of both, they are the same fish so they dont behave any different, why not get a few of each?
I do like the green ones when they are under the light...
OK, im going to try not to flame here.
1st ... please dont flush live fish.
However she did mention the fish dying so im not going to jump to that, perhaps she just worded it wrong.

I bought a marineland 20 gallon high, and am still using the light that came with it. for the most part it works well with plants. just not high demand plants, such as dwarf baby tears, or any...
How long have you had the aggressive discus, in my experiences, a new discus in the aquarium can often change the pecking order. leading to one or more showing the behavior you have described.
When i have to set up an extra tank, I usually swap a filter over, and throw some feeder fish in. usually white clouds, guppies, or rosy minnows.
They are cheap, hardy, & they usually survive, all...
you could consider semi aggressive tank mates, perhaps some Tiger barbs.
One red tail black shark should fit, they grow 6" and you should only keep one per tank.
I used to have a lot of BBA around my java ferns, swords, and misc others.
Idealy you would want to test for and fix all your water parameters.
however I offer a quick fix.
I purchased a Golden...
I have a Fire Eel, about 6 inches long and only eats live ghost shrimp. I have no issues hand feeding it, and it readily takes the shrimp from my fingers. I have tried feeding it freeze dried Krill,...

I am moving to a new Apartment in September and will need to move my aquarium into the new place. I havn't done this before and could use some tips.
Heavily planted tank
plenty of fish
When I switched from Gravel to sand I removed roughly 50% of the gravel, poured the sand in, then over the course of a couple weeks, used a strainer to syphon the gravel out.
I bought some plants at my LFS but no one knew what kind of plant they were.
I have 12 stems in total
small roots at the base of each stem
2-4 thin leaves growing from the top of each stalk
