About Me

  1. Is there some rule to determine the maximum number of fish per gallon, based on their current size?
  2. I am beginning to stock my 40 gallon breeder tank. I now have 5 ottos 6 panda corydoras 1 clown pleco and 1 super red long fin pleco. I find my cory's look lost in there and want to get more (because I LOVE them). I an also thinking of getting more Otto's as well. Is there such thing as too many bottom fish? I am also looking for additional stocking idea as well. I will eventually will move some guppies over from the 20 gallon but would like some other types of fish in there as well. I love community tanks..so want friendly fish
  3. I know this question has been asked 1,000 times so I apologize in advance, I just wanted to hear some opinions from like minded nerms. I have a 60 Gallon Tall (which is a weird tank, but I got a good deal on it) with 1 Angel, 1 White Skirt Tetra, and 1 Glofish Tetra. I have another Angel and Oto-cat in a QT Tank that I plan on adding eventually. My Tetras are pretty territorial and skidish. So I wanted to add more to make them more comfortable. How many more white skirts and glo tetras could I add to make them shoal together while keeping the tank slightly understocked (less frequent water changes)? I'm trying to keep the tank understocked because I have to get my water from the town over. The reason being.. my tap has a pH of 9 and a KH of 10 so its really hard to adjust/ I don't want to chase pH/ my fish are used to the other towns water. I've done a ton of research to find a better way but this is the only way that's affordable at the moment. Thank you for your time! (Sorry for the bad formatting, I'm on mobile)
  4. I have started my first planted tank in a 36 gallon bowfront with 9 platys . I will add 3 angelfish this weekend. When I started fertilizing I got a big growth in algae and am thinking about adding some Oto’s to help balance things while I fine tune lighting and fertilizer . I dont want to overstock but I’m not sure that they count the same as other fish because they primarily stick to the bottom and sides! I do have a few nirite and mystery snails as well. Would appreciate any help/ thoughts on the subject!
  5. Hi, I was just wondering how many fish I could put in my new 29 gallon aquarium. I am going to have established filter media in the tank so there will be BB present. The list of fish I have that are going in this tank are cardinal tetras, gold dust mollies, fancy guppies, a pleco or two, and Corey cats. I was thinking about putting one or two of the tetras or guppies in but was wondering if I could get away with putting 6 of the cardinal tetras in as I know you should keep them in groups. Also, which fish is the hardiest? This is my first tank but I completely understand the nitrogen cycle and how to test water and everything.
  6. I have a 55g with 3 discus 1 rope fish 1 angelfish and a pleco I want to get some kuhli loaches form the research I’ve done they are all compatible(please correct me if I’m wrong) but I want to know how many I could get
  7. Hello, I have a 55 gallon tank. stocked with a blood parrot, an electric blue acara , 5 boesemani rainbow and 6 congo tetra, and a small bristlenose pleco I was wondering if i can add another EBA. nitrates currently arent an issue, and aggression is not a problem either. thx
  8. I have a 55 gallon fresh water tank. I changed from a HOB filter to sponge/foam. I have it set up in a corner. But i see that the water on the other side has little to no movement. Should i get an additional sponge filter. Or move it to the middle of the tank
  9. I was watching Cory on You Tube about making a simple aquarium with just Neon Tetras, but I can not remember how many Neons he said you could put in a 10 Gallon tank, with plants. I was wondering if anyone could help me with this.
  10. I'm a little sad I just bought the cutest little peppered corydoras for my 5 gallon tank and now I read there should be 3. Is thAt a problem for a 5 gallon tank? With nerite snAil and betta?
  11. Right now I'm deciding how much fish I should put in my new 20 gallon long. I really like the harlequin rasboras, corydoras, otocinclus, and I really dont know what else. You can help me by telling me how much of each fish there should be in the 20g. Or you can suggest and other great fish.
  12. I want to get some red koi angels and raise them up so that in the future I can get a breeding pair from them. But I am not sure how much angels i should get to hopefully get a breeding pair. How much should I get? Could five angels be ok?
  13. This may seem like a dumb question but here it goes. I'm going to medicate a 36 Gallon tank. I have to use one packet per 10 gallons of water. Do you all think it would be safe to assume I'm closer to 30 gallons of actual water in the tank then 36 gallons after facturing in the substrate and decorations, right?
  14. I have a 55 gallon tank with a trickle filter using bioballs for filtration, small pebble rock as a substrate, rock/driftwood Hardscape and adding the fluval 3.0 light. The tank is Established and being converted over to a community fish tank with live plants. Planning on starting with various anubias, java fern, Bacopa caroliniana, Ammannia Gracilis, Scarlet temple. knowing that the plants will grow over time, How many plants should I start with? Thanks for your input.
  15. Apartment living has me down to one 55 gallon tank. At one time I had 4 going. How about you? Fish keeping is addictive!
  16. I have a 29 gallon, heavily planted. Stocked with 9 variatus platties, 5 swordtails, 3 guppies, 2 dwarf corys, a dojo loach and 3 amano shrimp. My water chemistry is good with weekly water changes. Am i dancing with the devil having so many fish? This is a pic before I added 6 platties.
  17. Hello all - I have a planted 10 gal tank with 11 juvenile cherry barbs (~1 inch in length). They appear to be comfortable at the moment - exploring and nibbling. As they mature and grow to full size, should I expect to have to transfer some (or all) of them to a larger tank?
  18. I'm curious about this, but I' wondering if most people rotate a lot of food or stick to one or two foods. I try to feed a different food each day of the week (Sunday they don't get fed). I like that the fish get a variety and I think it's a little more healthy for them and it helps their color, in my opinion. Beside the vegetables that I keep in the freezer, I don't have any frozen food. I'm about to start hatching some baby brine to see if it's a pain and how much my fish like it. Below is what I feed, some of it is going away and some of it is for bottom feeders, so it looks like a lot. Blanched zucchini and canned green beans - everyone loves these two. Xtreme Krill Flakes - I love this one and will keep reordering Xtreme Sinking Wafers - I'm not crazy about it because my fish don't like it Fluval Bug Bites Algae Crisps - My fish like it and I like the ingredients - going to try the smaller version below Fluval Bug Bites Tropical Formula (small bites) - I like this one also and so do my fish - I'll keep reordering this one. Fluval Bug Bites Bottom Feeder Granules - New - Trying to see if my plecos, shrimp, snails and ottos like this. Fluval Spirulina Flakes - This is new also to see if the fish like it. Hikari Betta Pellets - I'm not crazy about the ingredients in this. It will be replaced as soon as it's empty (maybe sooner) Hikari Freeze Dried Blood Worms - The fish love this and will keep this in the rotation Hikari Vibra Bites - Not too crazy about the ingredients, but wanted to see what the hype was about. This will be replaced - I'm already feeding Krill Flakes, so nothing new here to see Hikari Crab Cuisine - got this for the shrimp and snails for some calcium, but will try something new (Xtreme Shrimp or Denerle)
  19. Hello, everyone! I have a group of three angelfish that get along great together. They live in a 75 gallon tank with some platy fish and tetras. Can I add a few more angelfish to this established group? Thank you so much!
  20. Hi, this is my first post. So, I have a 10 gallon tank with Neolamprologus Multifaciatus. They have not bred in a while, but they did recently, and babies have gotten older. Since my aquarium club has been having inconsistent in person meetings due to COVID, it has been hard to get rid of babies and juveniles. I am worried that the growing juveniles will start fighting with other adults because of the smaller space and limited shells they can use. Any creative ideas anyone?
  21. Hey everyone, Looking for information on how many fish can be added to a community tank at one time. My understanding is not to add so much that you overwhelm the bio load. We have a 29g planted tank and are hoping to add 6 corys, one pleco and a snail or two. Should we do this in stages? Thank you 🐠
  22. Hi. I'm planning on going to aquarium co-op after work today to surprise my 4th graders Monday. I have a 40 breeder classroom tank, and wanted to add to it. I asked this question on one of my other posts, but it didn't match the topic so I'm afraid that it'll get missed before I go to the store. I have a list of fish I want to add to the tank and was wondering how many would be too many to ask for. I already figured out what I can or can't add with the fish I already keep and now it's time to solidify my list. Wish list: 1 or 2 more fancy plecos 6 inches or under. Or another long fin bristlenose. I have stirbai corys x6, but wondered if I could add the albino ones or maybe pandas. If not I might just add 3 more to their group and call it good. Kuli loaches 4 more rasboras 4 more rummy nose And 4 more cardinals Thinking of a fun snail too. I had been wanting to get hatchet fish for the top, but was told I shouldn't because they jump too much. I do have a heavy duty lid so I'm up for another opinion or two. I have live bacteria to add to my tank with my new fish, and I just got new plants! I'm waiting for them to arrive!!! Help me solidify my list so I can help Robert tomorrow. He's asked to have a list ready. I was there for probably 45 minutes the last 2x before because I had so many questions. I felt really bad but it was my first big tank and didn't want to mess up. Thanks for your help. - Eden.
  23. I'm planning on setting up a 29 gallon aquarium-moderately stocked, and I would like to know everybody's options-1 medium sponge filter or 2.
  24. How many neon tetras in a 100 gallon tank
  25. This is probably a difficult question to answer. I've been into the hobby for about half a year now and I've watch A LOT of videos on the hobby to familiarize myself with the basics. One issue I still find hard is figuring out what is the breaking point between a nice stocked tank and an overstocked tank. As we all know, there is constant craving for MORE. We all have to deal with the thoughts of, "What else can I add to my aquarium?", "What's missing?" Obviously, better to understock than to overstock. However, there are situations that warrant considerations. For instance, I have three swordtails ( 1 male and 2 females). Now I know you're all thinking the same thing... 1 to 3 or 4 ratio! I realize that too, but have been hesitant to add another because of my concern of overstocking. I could give specifics on my tank size and what I have stocked, but that deflects the purpose of this topic. I want this topic to be helpful guidelines for anybody new to the hobby. I'm interested in hearing what YOU use as a rule of thumb of how much to add to your aquarium.
