    How Many Cichla Would You Stock in This Tank?

    No serious advice is needed but I wanted to hear some of our communities thoughts on this. I can't ask this question on any other group, however, due to the fact I'll get a bunch of unintelligible answers that're way off. So here's the question: How many Peacock Bass would you stock long term...

    Is a 96 x 24 x 24 big enough for an adult Giant Gourami?

    Is a 96 x 24 x 24 big enough for an adult Giant Gourami? Do I NEED more width? Or would this size of a tank be good?

    Tank Size for Piranha

    So I am a beginner enthusiast and am wanting to start with Piranha. My question has to do with tank size as I hear the more piranha in a tank the better to give them more confidence. But this also means a bigger tank. So I was wondering if I had say 4 fish, how big a tank would I need? I've...

    Frontosa question

    So AQ advisor says 5 Frontosa (4 females to 1 male) is fine for a 120g (48”x24”x24”) for life. They would be the sole inhabitants of the tank other than some ghost shrimp. I always throw a pile of ghost shrimp in tanks with rock work to clean trapped food out of the tiny crevices. Just want to...

    Good tank size for asian arowana?

    I wanna get a super fire red or golden crossback arowana from planet arowana and I'm not sure how big the tank needs to be. The dimensions of the two tanks I've seen are 152.9(L) x 60(W) x 73(H) cm and 202.9(L) x 60(W) x 85(H) cm. Are either of these big enough? The width is what I'm worrying...

    Fire Eel Tank

    I know for sure adult fire eels need a very large tank. But I currently have 2 - 4” Senegal bichirs, a 3” black ghost knife, and a 9”fire eel in a 75 gallon tank. He seems to be growing quite slow. There was a 9” tire track in there with them but he became aggressive toward my fire eel so he was...

    Is Height Important for RTCs?

    Would a RTC be able to live in a 13’x7’x30” indoor pond?. The footprint is good for a RTC but I’ve seen things saying 3’ is the minimum height. Is this accurate?

    Denison Barb tank size?

    So, I have a large semi-aggressive tank, but I wasn't sure if denison barbs were okay for semi-aggressive? Another question is if my rainbow shark would see them as a threat or not? I have a peaceful community tank but it doesn't have a current, nor do I think it's big enough (just a 20 gallon...

    Can I get Bichirs?

    Hey all, My dad's giving me his old 75g and I'm fairly new to the fish scene. Now, I really want Senegals, like really bad, but I've searched around and asked friends and I keep getting different responses on whether or not I can keep some in my 75g. I understand there's a lot of variables...
