    Freshwater vs Saltwater fish, which one do you like better?

    Hi everyone, my first post here so I'm sorry if I made some mistakes. I was wondering what fish species do you like better in general, FW or SW, and why? I've kept both and while I love my Jack Dempsey and Green Terror I can't deny that I like SW fish more. I feel like they have more...

    Marine Molly Community

    Hi Guys, I have had a marine molly community for a week now. I have kept other fancy marine fish, corals, anemones before, but decided to sell everything and just do some something simple and easy. Tank is 150L. Lights are cheap 2 USD each LEDS. Using a canister filter (sunsun304B, 2000LPH)...

    A native killifish I think will make a big splash.

    Ok this is a thread about the striped killifish. I am planning to keep some then try and introduce them to the hobby by selling them to my lfs. These are AMAZING fish. Why? Well I'll make you a list! PROS. Fully saltwater killifish, but can go brackish one of the biggest killifish, growing to...

    Texas cichlid identification

    Hi guys, I just picked this little guy up and am pretty sure that he's a green Texas, but after hearing about all the different collection points, I'm not sure what type. I remember back in the day all you could find was the real Texas cichlids, no greens. He has a little red in the background...

    This filter is AMAZING! I have only had it 2 weeks but I scored a deal on a 400 gallon tank and this will not be enough for me. Timing was never my strong suit - haha. But you can have a MINT perfect Fluval FX4 for much less than retail! This was plugged in to a (non planted, no fish, empty...

    Bowmouth Gutairfish in Freshwater?

    I found this video, and was very shocked. I was wondering if there was any validity to it, or if the fish had a death sentence? I've never even heard of anyone attempting to keep these guys in freshwater

    45g predator tank: Do you think this is overstocking?

    Hi. Long time lurker, first time poster. I have a lot of experience in freshwater aquaria, and recently I've been very tempted to try salt. I found a nice 45g cube-styled aquarium on LiveAquaria, measuring 26.5" x 22" x 19". Can't post a link because this is my first post, but it has a...

    (saltwater? I dunno if i should post here.) Lionfish compatibility and other questions

    I'm setting up a Red Sea Reefer Deluxe XXL 750 (200-gallons) and I'm planning to put a clearfin lionfish as the main fish. I was originally thinking of Niger triggerfish since they were the least aggressive of the triggerfish but after browsing through some forums, they often said that...

    The resiliance and hardcore nature of a BTA

    So about 10 days ago I got my first BTA. I planned to get one later this year and start an anemone tank, but the opportunity came by sooner and I got it on a little bit of an impulse. So I purchased it, got home in the evening and added him into the tank. Watched him a little until it was...

    Another hitchhiker

    This is something no one has been able to ID yet. It is not a montipora coral. It seems to be doing well, its almost been 3 weeks now and it seems to be spreading to the other side (darker side) of the rock. My lighting is 2 x 12 watt LED bulbs. Mostly white light, with some blue LEDs spaced...

    ID on something new growing

    Hello guys. I haven't collected anything for about two weeks now, but I suspect this has been growing for about a month now. I only noticed it yesterday though. Its hard. So I'm guessing whatever it is involves calcium.

    Maxima clam tank size?

    What's the tank dimensions needed to house a maxima clam? When I search it says 100 gallons and up, it doesn't sound right to me but I'm no expert so I'm asking here, if it does need 100 gallons then why? Cause I thought clams hardly move or just don't. Thanks for any replies.

    Suitable saltwater sharks?

    I have been very interested in a shark tank or pool for my home for a long time but I am unsure which shark is most suitable, I am aware there are smaller bottom dwelling sharks but I'm more interested in sharks like the blacktip reef shark for example. Expenses and space isn't a problem and I'm...

    Cleaner shrimp hand snack

    Does anyone else enjoy having their hands cleaned by their cleaner shrimp? When they see me approach the tank they move to hang around the filter area where my hand usually goes in. Waiting to clean my hands. Do you think they would get much nutrition from this? I was wondering if rubbing sand...
