  1. I already knew that Corydoras were tough but I didn't know they were THAT tough lol
  2. Nice Cory Gang lol. I also like your scape in the 1st tank.
  3. According to thesprucepets.com, it says, "Salt creep occurs when the water in a saltwater aquarium splashes out of the tank, gets things wet, and after the fresh portion of the water evaporates, leaves behind salt crystals" So it's basically nothing to worry about. But, it'd still be better to just simply clean/wipe it off.
  4. I would recommend putting a heater in the pond to bring the temperature up to at least 65 degrees Fahrenheit so the beneficial bacteria can grow faster.
  5. According to aquaticarts.com, it says, "The Melon Sword is a member of the plant group known as Rosettes, which are known for their extremely short stem axes and for the way their leaves grow upward from the base of the plant. This plant can grow up to 20 inches in height with the proper lighting and water quality."
  6. The King of DIY (An aquarium hobbyist Youtube channel) has a koi pond currently and in some of his videos he explains how he takes care of his koi during the winter season so I would recommend checking out his Youtube channel for some tips on what to do.
  7. I would probably go with Taxiphyllum. But anyways, is this Fish for Thought???
  8. It might be hair algae or some sort of algae but I'm not sure
  9. The minimum tank size for most goldfish species is 20-30 gallons, and then an extra 10 gallons for each new goldfish you add. Goldfish also produce a lot of waste so the poop/ammonia would take control of a bowl pretty easily. @Daniel said that you should perhaps consider a betta instead but even Bettas shouldn't live in a bowl. They'll survive, sure, but there's a difference between surviving and thriving. The minimum tank size for a betta is at the very least, 3 gallons.
  10. That is really helpful. I'll make sure to do that when I am ready to execute my plan
  11. Flowerhorns for sure. They're truly amazing fish. Also, oscars are awesome too
  12. You can keep rainbowfish and danios with them from what I've read/heard
  13. Almost all wild bettas can live together, but judging from the wild betta you put on your thumbnail, I think the species is Betta macrostoma. They are absolutely stunning. I'm pretty sure they have these at Aquarium Co-op too.
  14. I would recommend just getting the betta its own 3-5 gallon tank. It would probably get stressed in your 20 gallon with all those other fish. You'd also run the risk of it harming the other fish. Less fish=Less stress=Happy life. However, each betta has its own personality so it might do fine in the 20 gallon but I would play it safe.
  15. Greetings fellow fish-keepers! I currently have a 3-gallon Betta tank and I soon want to replace all the decor and gravel in it. I want to switch it up because when I originally got my tank, I put glow in the dark gravel and neon/rainbow/unrealistic colored decorations in it but now as I get more drawn into the fish-keeping hobby, it's starting to look pretty ugly. I want to take everything out of my tank and replace it with natural looking substrate, natural looking decor (driftwood, mini-logs), and even some plants. My problem is that I'm concerned about damaging the beneficial bacteria in the tank. Does anyone have any tips or anything helpful to say to help me through this process without running the risk of hurting my tank's bacteria or water parameters?
