    Hi! So... I may have gotten a new fish tank second-hand yesterday. Its a FLUVAL Chi, but I may trade it to a local member for a Topfin fish tank. Either way, I'm getting a 5 gallon tank. So... What to do with it? I really like African Dwarf Frogs, I'm thinking some of them. I'll add a poll!

    I'm looking to add to my tank. I have a male betta, and a nertile zebra snail. Tomorrow I plan to get one more zebra snail and possibly an additional tank mate! I have my betta in a tank at 80 degrees, a live plant, gravel and a hammock. He seems very happy but I want to add a little bit...

    I am familiar with the concept of quarantine, but how long should you keep new fish/plants separate before adding them into the main tank? When should you quarantine for a long period, and when would it be okay to introduce them after a few days? I have a 1 gallon and 2.5 gallon tank that I...

    So... I bought an ADF today. And i'm worried, My betta keeps flaring at him (i don't know if that's the correct term or not). Kinda stalking him around the tank, but hasn't bit him or even touched him. Will they be okay together? Is he just not used to a tank mate and will simmer down? Or will I...

    I recently upgraded Dawn to an uncycled 5 gallon, and was wondering some types of tankmates I can have with him. I know it's a tight fit, but I would really enjoy someone with him :) I considered a cory, since Dawn would most likely leave him alone, but I'm not sure if it's okay to get just one...

    I have 2 african dwarf frogs (got them yesterday) and they just attacked each other? They're both males (supposedly), and one took food from the other right out of his mouth, thus resulting in a fight. From what I've read they're supposed to be fine together. Is this normal? I don't want one...

    I recently got 2 ADFs, they are said to be two males so I named them Cain and Abel. Now, I've noticed a few discrepancies: 1. Abel has darker eyes than Cain. 2. Cain is slightly larger. 3. Abel has the little glands or 'bumps' under his arms indicating he is male; Cain doesn't have these from...

    Welcome to my aquarium journal. I thought this might be a good way to keep track of the trials and tribulations and of course, the joys of my latest fish-keeping endeavor. My aquarium is really not mine, it is a pet that my 6 year old son earned for consistent good behavior. My 8 year old is...

    So I have a 5.5 gallon tank and I have a betta in there with a snail, which they seem to get along. I have a heater in there and an bubbler, or whatever you want to call it. Could I get an ADF or is it too risky in a 5.5 gallon tank? or should I just stick to snails in there? although it would...

    I have a male betta in a 10g tank with a filter, heater, and LED lights. Also, about a week and a half ago I added an african dwarf frog. My betta DID NOT LIKE IT... at least at first. He would puff up his gills and attack him everyday. The frog hasn't been hurt (at least I don't see any...

    I finally got my 10 gallon going and I put my female betta in with 2 ADFs. I feed the frogs from a terra-cotta pot holder so that they don't make a mess, but my betta keeps eating a lot of the food. It's really bad for her to eat so much, but I don't know how to stop her. I was thinking about...
  12. Planted Betta Tanks
    I'm basically making this thread to double check on everything and to make sure everything will work out okay for me. Alright, so to start this off, I have a 5 gallon tank. (http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hawkeye-5-gal-Tank-Aquarium-Kit-Fish-Aquatic-Pets/14660258) It's inhabitants right now are...

    I was going to do a bare bottom 10 gallon tank, but I don't want to anymore. I've filled the tank up with water already and dosed the ammonia for cycling so is there anyway I can add substrate without emptying the tank? That would be a ton of work and it would mess up my cycle. I am choosing...

    I will be getting 1 or 2 ADFs to live with my female betta in her 10 gallon once it cycles. I was going to do a bare bottom tank because I was worried that the ADFs might eat some gravel and die, but now I'm not so sure. My tank looks ugly and it's been cycling for a week and still no...

    After my betta passed away, I decided to grow out my community tank, and yesterday, I went to the petshop for a blue platy or two for my group {I have one male and three females currently.}, only to find these beautiful, funny looking fish housed with their female platies! My mother instantly...

    Is it safe to change the water right after you put new fish in? My mother came home with cute new fish, but i was going to change the water today. Can i still change it or should i change it tomorrow?? I also just put in an ADF and i know they need really clean water. What should i do? :-(

    I've had my hmdt for a few months and just moved him to 10g. Eventually I decided to get him a friend in an adf. They get along fine, no aggressive behavior (except when I first but the adf in Apollo flared until he realized its just a frog. They like hanging out under the water sprites together...

    I am moving my female from her 1.5 gallon to a 10 gallon lightly planted tank. I want to get a frog, so I was thinking of getting an ADF to live with her. I know frogs are bad eaters, but since the frog pellets are too big for my female's tiny mouth, I think the frog would be able to sift them...

    I woke up this morning and found my adf, Jadis dead. He was a great frog and he would sing and come to the front of his cage when I passed by. I had him for 3 years and took good care of him so I don't know why he died. I loved him a lot and I feel so sad now that he's gone. I cried for half...

    So I'm finally getting a betta this thursday (He'll live in a gallon vase until the 5 gal tank is cycled). I just set up my tank a few hours ago and was wondering if anyone else has cats as well and has problems with hair getting in the tank? My lid was on and everything and it's still in...
