I can't quite tell, but how much glue did you use on your Anubias? It looks to me like you more-or-less covered the rhizome in glue, which is not good for the plant, and could have made it start to...

From what I understand, whether you tolerate/like "pest" snails depends on your view of them. Bladder snails breed prolifically, but as with any snail, will self-limit their population based on what...

I know zip about wild bettas, but I would be very, very surprised if a commercial retailer crossed their stock with any wild species. Because of how bettas are bred there's no way it would be an...

I love nerites! The thing with them though is that they will only eat algae, not even algae wafers or algae-based "snail jello", so if you don't plan on starving it to death you need to make sure...

Thanks! I'm pretty happy with how it's shaping up, to be honest. I've never done much decorating with my tanks before. :3

I did take off the rotted ends of the Anacharis when I pulled the bundle...

I decided to take out the pond snail that hitchhiked, but unfortunately I must have missed some eggs when I tried to clean off the plants because there were six in my tank today that had to be...

Quick update: I upgraded my light, deciding against another Stingray because price, and also because I'm not sure I like having only a single row of LEDs even in their larger sizes. So I decided to...

Thanks for your feedback guys!

Yesterday it was bright out and the light looked pretty good, today it's dark and rainy and I can see that it's probably not going to cut it. Bummer. So I'll be...

First Planted Tank

My order of plants came in today, which was a surprise because the company never sent out a shipping notice, and I am super excited to have them in my tank!

I also didn't realize that the pots...

I agree that the fins and bodyshape look male to me, but I always advocate looking for ovaries to be completely sure. Since this betta is light-bodied, it should be easy enough to tell, just shine a...

Interesting! I can see how that makes sense, since bettas are more surface dwellers. And no worries, I knew what you meant- I wouldn't try and jam two shoals of cories in a 10g, that would definitely...

I'm not sure how fast the filter I'd use is, but it's rated for up to 25g so I'm assuming that would work okay. And I definitely hope to fill the tank with lots of plants & hiding places! Fake plants...

10g Stocking Check

I fell absolutely in love with cory cats, and I'm upgrading my betta to a 10g to be able to have a small shoal of them. My question is, I used AqAdvisor and it seems like I can also squeeze in some...

With a pale-bodied fish like that I would expect to easily see ovaries through their flesh, and I can't see really any suggestion of them, so I'm also on the bandwagon of saying it's probably a male....

A tip I would suggest is to try and bring a few gallons of clean water from your old source with you. That way you have some water your fish are already used to to help acclimate them to their new...

Cute! And I would definitely say female for both of them; because they're dark you can't see ovaries directly, but the shape of them is pretty obvious in their stocky bodies. The blue one on left is...

So if you really want to be sure, you need to find the fish's ovaries. I'm attaching some pics where I've circled the area you'd find the ovaries in. A male will have a round belly, and then his...

Smile Simple Set-up Questions
