  1. Hi all I've just setup a 305L Aquarium (80 us gallons) and it measures 40" wide by 2ft deep. Do we think this tank is large enough to keep clown loaches? Thanks Aaron
  2. I am looking at getting a 75 gal glass tank in the next month or so. This would be my 2nd tank - my 1st one a 15 gal just completed its cycle. Is this going to be too big of a jump for a newbie? I don't know if bigger means I need more experience. I was going to go with a glass tank, and regardless of the size I end up with I am wondering if I need to do anything additional to the bare tank before I add water to it. (e.g., reinforce w/ additional silicone) I jumped in blind to my child's 15 gal 😆 and I want to make sure I set this larger tank up correctly from the start. And lastly a question about stands. I realize if I go with a 75 gal the total weight of the tank could be close to 900 lbs. What are your favorite types of stands to use? I want something that is furniture quality as the tank will be in my front room with my piano. Do I have to you use an official aquarium stand? If I want to buy a piece of quality furniture, (not Ikea stye) what should I look for to make sure it will hold all the weight? Thank you fish friends!
  3. 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?
  4. With the Petco dollar per gallon sale, I want to get a tank strictly for Neocardinia (and maybe some otis or cleanup crew). What do you think is the ideal Tank size?
  5. Hi everyone! I’m so glad I found Cory an Aquarium Co Op. The videos and forums have been super helpful in getting back on track. Just wanted to introduce myself and the kids. I have a tall 37 gal planted tropical community aquarium. Running a medium sponge filter and hot rodded a top fin hob 40 with a coarse sponge prefilter and two coarse sponge cutouts for inside. The tank has 1 juvenile angelfish, 3 dwarf cobalt blue gourami, 5 red coral platty, 5 albino corys, 1 hillstream loach, 1 giant mystery snail and 1 nerite snail. Been running like this for 4 months or so. Do I have enough filtration for the bio load? I’m pretty sure I’m pushing the limits on tank size as well. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
  6. I have just enough space in my living room for either a 55 gallon, a 72 gallon bowfront, or a 60 gallon (same footprint as 55 but taller). My husband loves the look of the bowfront and I love that it’s a larger size that would still fit in the space, but I heard recently they may be more prone to leaks. Anyone have experience or knowledge on if bowfronts are more likely to leak? I noticed the 72 bowfronts are hard to find new, but don’t know if it’s due to COVID or because the manufacturers are discontinuing them. Also, if you were planning on a planted tank, would you go for higher water volume (like the 60) or would the shorter 55 gallon be a better bet? I’m looking at used options and unsure what to get. Fish will probably be cherry barbs, green neon tetras, otos, and honey gouramis. Obviously the 55 is easier to find, but I’m leaning toward a bowfront if I can find a good one and it’s not leak prone. I’d appreciate any advice. Thanks!
  7. I was recently asked by a friend which is the smallest tank a betta can go in, I told them a 5 gallon if they do not have live plants. I keep two bettas in 3 gallon( going to upgrade soon) and a 10 gallon both heavly planted. so I was just wonder what the minimum for a betta. I personly think It is okay to put a betta in a tank smaller then 5 gallons if it planted, what are your guys thought?
  8. Hi everyone. I’ve been reading tons of articles online about Fahaka puffers and as always I’m seeing lots of conflicting info on recommended tank size. I’m in the UK so don’t have the same standard size tanks as you have in the US but I’m looking at having a custom tank built for him. I have space for a 4x2x2 and I’m thinking I’ll have a sump. Can anyone who has experience of keeping these fish tell me if that will be a large enough tank long term? Thanks
  9. I am curious what everyone's favored tank size. I love the 40 breeder and the 150 fat boy. I think my favorite small tank is the 40 breeder. I love the 53 I had but it's so hard to get one.
  10. I currently have a 38 gallon with all fake plants, but id like to try a tank with all real ones. What tank size has worked well for you, and should I focus on length or height? Lastly, what small fish (schooling or not) have been your favorite for planted tanks? Thanks!
  11. Hi all, I have seen many different preferences on what conditions for a tank to keep angelfish in and I’m curious on other people’s opinions. I have heard nothing under 18 in depth, 40 breeder is too shallow, a 29 is fine, but with all of this I am not looking for a community but maybe a pair and then a bottom feeder to clean up after them. What are ideal conditions for raising angelfish.
