    Eggs on live plants most likely, I had them in a 10 gallon cherry shrimp tank for some time. Harmless and apparently reproduce as slowly as they move, never saw more than a few. Ramshorn snails ran...

    Not sure what brand is available in Canada, but Black Beauty or Black Diamond blasting grit works well. It's actually coal slag, not sand, completely inert, main difference (aside from being easier...

    Given suitable cover and clean water they should be fine with anything too big to fit into their relatively big mouths. Neon tetras or fry of any kind would be eaten, but they're semi-social and...

    GBR's prefer warmer water than most other fish, Bolivian Ram's or Apisto's would be a better option there. Hatchets are difficult to keep IME, some won't eat flakes, and they're particular about...

    Botia's kept w/out others of their own species are typically a problem for other species, sometimes even as far as killing other fish outright IME.

    Keep up with water quality and the catfish should be fine. My Synodontis multi's often tear patches of hide off of each other but it grows back w/out any problems.

    A 75 is just about big enough for a fully grown JD alone, adding a breeding pair of firemouths would be pushing it. Might be alright for a while, but you never know when a fish could get torn up or...

    Those "minnows" can grow up to 20" and weigh as much as 5 lbs, though smaller is more common.

    BN that size wouldn't have bristles yet, pretty well all pleco's of any type have the same number of fins. Only other suckermouth that comes to mind are Sewellia, usually called hillstream loaches or...

    Long flowing fins sounds like a longfin bristlenose to me, try google for images and see if that's it.

    Dempseys grow a bit too large for a 55, really should be housed in at least a 75. A blue acara or firemouth would be a better fit with a redtail shark. A group of dwarf chain loaches would be good...

    I only use sponges in my aquaclears, 3 in the 70's and 2 in the 110's. Carbon isn't necessary (or even particularly useful) for normal maintenance, and sponges collect debris as well as providing...

    That's true of any potentially invasive species, but only if it can survive in the new environment. "Tropical" fish like piranha (and all tetras for that matter) wouldn't make it through the first...

    Never bred them in an aquarium, and can't say why a female turned up dead, but I kept them in the backyard pond at my last house for years to eat mosquito larvae. They spawned every spring, and from...

    Actually, Amazon swords and Hygro aren't true aquatic plants. They will grow in an aquarium w/out high light and CO2, but they will also grow emersed.
