  1. Freshwater Fish Diseases,Algae Issues,Emergencies
    Sort of a follow up to "what's wrong in this tank." I got these pictures earlier of one of my pygmy cories: As you can see, its abdomen appears swollen and it looks to me like its eyes are bulging. I also spotted another early but failed to get a picture of one that seemed to have a...
  2. Freshwater Fish Species
    I have 5 peacock gudgeons living in my 60 gallon tall and I'm not positive about their sexes but I think I have at least one male (the focus of the video) and possibly 3-4 females. Not sure if these guys are mature yet, maybe someone can share their knowledge on these guys. They are about 1.5"...

    Planning on adding another piece of wood and possibly more plants aha. Adding another grow light for the immersed plants soon. This will soon house a female or plakat betta and some neo. shrimp. All the little white things you see on the wood are scuds. Any advice is greatly appreciated! The...

    I have a 10 gallon 'high tech' planted freshwater. (No fish yet, planning on some shrimp and a betta.) There's a ton of little 'scuds' which hitchhiked off some plant(s) I didn't bother to quarantine, and they have exploded in population. Should I leave decaying plants for them (and my soon-to...

    Hi! I'm setting up my first aquarium, I studied and researched a lot but I still have several questions, I would be very grateful if a more experienced aquarist could clarify some of them. My aquarium is 60 liters (60x30x33), I intend to put a shoal of ember tetra, four Otocinclus and some...

    This should be a fun one! A little over a month ago I dug through my pile of aquarium supplies one day and setup a tank for my girlfriend's daughter. Then sometime around yesterday morning it occurred to my that with this equipment I need to just go for the planted tank I always wanted. I have...

    After experimenting with my first fish tank ever, a 10 gallon glofish tank. I knew that I wanted something more.
