Re: Is the pH too high at 7.8 ?

Re: Why did my betta fish die early??

I keep my Bettas in large communiuty tanks and they live a long time. They like to hang out at the top of the tank in foating veggies. They should never be kept in tanks with large Cichlids.

Re: Is my gourami a male or female?

Females have a fatter body and shorter dorsal fin than the males. I would say yours is a female.

Re: Killifish tankmates

Killifish can live with most small fish. They tend to live near the top so you need Otos or Corys to pick ane food that gets to the bottom.

Re: Do I need a heater?

Your fish should be fine. Don't get any warm water fish like Angels or Ddiscus, they need water above 75 (Angels) and above 82 (Discus). Both Bettas and Neons do fine at 72.

Re: Having Major Problems with GBR's.. Enternal Parasites maybe?

Your water is much too hard for Tetras and Rams. I am suprised your ph isn't near 8.0 with a 200 hardness. An easy and safe way to lower your hardness is to gradually replace your tank's water with...

Re: What's a good algae eater to put with ghost shrimp?

Otos and Small Plecos are very compatable with Ghost Shrimp. Remember that Algae Eaters and Ghost Shrimp eat the same things so you may to add Algae Waffers.

Re: Cloudy Water, again!

A common cause of cloudy water is overfeeding. Make sure your crabs are eating all their food. Do you have some bottom feeders like Corys or Otos to clean up??

Re: Apple Snail Shell Deterioration - Please Help

In a biologicaly active tank Nitrates are not usually zero or not for very long. Snails need a ph around 7.5 and some hardness in the water for their shell health. Big snails need a lot of Calcium.
