    Hey I'm Pin!

    I am a high school student that got into the hobby over the summer. I started with a ten gal, expanded to a 29, then a 55, and now a 75. The 55 and 75 I restored by hand. My dream is to some day get a gigantic tank to keep monsters but I'll have to wait till I have more room.

    Lager Oscar chasing other Oscar

    I have had two oscars( 10-15cm) in this tank for 2months with no problem. They swim and eat together. They often lay beside each other at night. Two weeks ago I added 5 silver dollars into the tank. There was no aggression. Two day ago I noticed that the larger Oscar was chasing the smaller one...

    Is this HITH?

    My oscar had this nasal erosion for more than 10 days. Wounds obtained from jumping around are healing but this one is not. The nasal hole a little bigger and i starting to think that it is HITH? Im doing 50% WC twice a week. Water parameters all fine.

    How much ammonia do fish produce?

    I doubt anybody is going to be able to show me how to calculate or estimate how much ammonia will be created daily from a populated aquarium. Too many variables. Fish size, type feeding etc. But I was wondering about ball park figures. Anything based on some sort of testing or fact. Not...
