    I am starting my first tank. Its a plasma fishtank that mounts on a wall. However I know that cichlids arent to be kept in such small spaces. I was wondering if it were possible to put maybe two of the smaller cichlid breeds in this tank, along with any other fish that may be compatible? I hear...

    Hi All, So 4 months ago I made the mistake of buying 3 ocellaris. And now I need to fix it. Everything started like a fairy tale where the three little guys were friends. One day, the female got a boyfriend and started to exclude the smallest guy from the pack (no constant aggression). This...

    Hello all, I am a newcomer to saltwater tanks. In the past I have maintained freshwater tanks with success but recently decided to venture into the world of saltwater. I have a 20 gallon tank that has been together for about 3 weeks. I am not intending to keep coral or anemones at this point...

    Only in the preliminary stages of planning my first saltwater tank. I know that a 20 g tank is hard to keep, but it will fit into my decor very well. I am wondering if I could have a 20 g in sight connected to a larger tank to maintain the water properties hidden elsewhere. Would it give me the...

    I have a 29 gallon tank that got moved about a month ago. There are some significant changes that need to be made. One of which, is to add a power head. What GPH do you think would be best? The current inhabitants are damsels, snails and crabs. I plan on omitting the damsels in the near future...

    Has anyone had any experience keeping these in smaller(ish) tanks. I have one that I am nursing back to health and I don't want to keep it in my Solana longer than I really have to. I'm afraid that it's tentacles are going to extend any day now and kill everything. I have a Bio-Cube 14g just...
