    Hello everyone, I didn’t see a Newbie area so I hope I’m asking this in the right place (going to be a longish post). My fish keeping experience as the title says is with planted freshwater aquariums. Not even high-light pressurized CO2 setups, just low light Excel based ones. I am getting a...

    I got my kid a 1 gallon Aqueon tank, probably put a beta or Tetra in it.. I just filled it with RODI water, and put in the free 'water cleaner/nutrient' packet..

    I just bought a fish tank. The guy who owned it before had live coral. The coral came with the tank and is still kind of alive. I would just like some information on coral, and wondering if I can put the coral in my freshwater tank. What kind of damage may it cause? if any.

    I am not really an Aquarist but I do enjoy seeing other peoples' fishes at their places. The main reason for me not having fish is that it seems all too complicated: water skimmers, pumps, oxigenizers, water temperature... in terms of simplicity a cat would be ideal, only that a cat doesn't...

    All of my inhabitants have finally made it back over to the 50. They were crowded into a 20H temporarily when we moved. Now I have this extra 20. I was thinking about setting up a freshwater planted tank. Does anyone have any experience with one of these?

    So the people at a LFS were selling small zoanthid frags for $5.99 plus a free frag. One of the gals there recommended a freshwater dip since they had just gotten many of them in. I've never done that and wanted to get some opinions and/or methods on doing this. Thanks!

    Anyone have a planted freshwater aquarium? Looking to buy or trade corals for some plants or clippings. Any advice or tips for my son's new setup would be appreciated as well. Have a 29g with a Nova Extreme T5HO (moderate to high lighting?) and will be low tech (no CO2) for now.
