    As the owner of three potential giants (CK, pbass, black ear pangasius) and a medium-sized pleco, I've been told my 60g is overstocked.

    New Blue Dolphin Acclimation

    So, we bought a new blue dolphin (we presume female, but it's so hard to tell) and a new yellow lab for our tank. We purposefully got a blue dolphin the size of our other 3 in hopes that it might acclimate better. The other 3 blue dolphins have grown up from very young juveniles for almost 2...

    White specs

    Hello, I recently added 2 angel rams into my tank. I noticed that both of them have developed very small white specs. Should I be concerned for my other fish? What are these white specs? Thanks!
