People keep focussing on pH. It's not that important as water hardness is. Fish experience osmoting pressure from hardness.
Any of the captive bred cories as well as cardinals will be perfectly...

Before panicking I'd test the tap water, see what that's like. If it
s nice and low then 20% changes daily for the next week or so should put a nice dent in it.
Another thing to try is get some...
You don't have a few years, you got until next summer. Max.
Go back a few decades to your highschool years... :smile:
The N in those abbreviations is the Nitrogen. In ammonia it has 3 hydrogen atoms, in nitrite it has two oxygen and in nitrate it gets...
Bet you have hardly any rats or mice though.
Our common owl species, the long eared owl, is a lot smaller than that but it's still an impressive sight. Totally silent nocturnal death to small rodents.
Unfortunately it's red listed because of...
Ammonia is NH3, nitrite is NO2-, nitrate is NO3-. So the ammount of available nitrogen doesn't really change during the process.
Looks promising although the numbers don't add up, you'd expect far less ammonia with such a raise in nitrates. You sure you're shaking the bottle well?

Please do. I find them to be the best plugin set I'vé used in years

Mine's noisy as well but this thing really helps: https://www.google.com/nikcollection/products/dfine/ and then I apply this one on the main subject for a bit more local contrast and sharpening...
OK... since you asked
First of all... a single piranha? Why? You'd be lucky if it doesn't pine away and gets to feed. They are, like most tetras, much happier in groups.

Go for it! I've found that iso 1600, f5.6 and anywhere between 1/30 and 1/80 works.
White balance can be an issue though. I used some white plastic to shoot a whitebalance preset and found that...

Tank lights. I've tried it with flash which gives even better pictures but it's just not my thing, too easy to end up with harsh shadows and it annoys the fish
I don't like saying this but that plant is indeed in trouble and dying in bits. Syphon away the fungus now before it becomes a problem for the rest of that tiny tank
If this is in the fluval spec...

and yes, I know nice pictures but that was 3 out of about 40. :)

Well, well, well...
Came home from a visit to my dad and found my taenia not chasing eachother but actually wiggling up to eachother. Seems I may have had the sexes reversed because the big one...
A 30g does not allow for angels and community fish.
That would depend on the species. For a lot of long stem plants this will work but for others, like the amazon swords for example, this isn't going to be the way to do it.
Tannins are part of the natural habitat for a lot of species we commonly keep. Carbon in the filter does a great job of absorbing them.
Boiling wood is a way to make it sink faster but it will...
It looks like some kind of algae. Does it rub off?

I've seen the nannacara squeeze themselves in silly tiny space if they think there's a wiggler in there. I suspect they may be quite successful in keeping the shrimp down.
Do wonder when...

Thanks Texan! Photography is my other big hobby. And with both I tend to persevere until I meet my own high standards.
Also, sitting with the camera on a tripod in front of my tank is a good...
Why am I suddenly reminded of that silly betta planter project? Hm, must be my own paranoia.
Anyway... I kind of like the idea but I don't see the problem you're trying to solve. Plastic bags...

but lovely fish. Friendly and good natured all the time

The cories will try to eat anything that falls to the bottom. They lack the hardware to tackle a sprout.
The nannacara are...
