    Hello! I am a new betta owner, and am stuck on when to do my first partial water change. I set up my tank around 8 days ago (June 5th) and added my fish 5 days ago (June 8th). I remember reading that you should wait to complete your first water change until your cycle is complete. Is this...

    I read somewhere that burying a cuttlefish bone (the same as used for birds) under the aquarium gravel is good for snails because it gives off calcium to supplement their shell growth. I've got one Zebra Nerite in with my betta in a 2.5 gallon tank. Thoughts? It's not cycled, but I do have a...

    This thread is for people to post pictures of their dream tanks! The pictures can be ones you've found online, drawn yourself, or saw other places! The tanks don't have to be realistic at all.

    Hi, everyone, I bought a Fluval Spec V this afternoon, brought it home, aquascaped and planted it, and then set it up to run. Within a few minutes, it was leaking all over the place. The front seam was bad and no amount of caulk (all I had on hand) was going to help. So now I'm looking again...

    I've had my betta, Ziggy (Full name, Ziggy Stardust) for about 6 months, and he's been pretty happy and healthy in his 1.5 gal cube, with regular water changes every 3 to 4 days. He also has a heater and a few ornaments he enjoys hiding in and swimming around. Ziggy is still a pretty small...
