list of scaleless fish? by LM
Hi all, I have been wondering which loach species are considered scaleless.. I assume not all are scaleless? Is there a list somewhere listing all the species that are in the scaleless family, and thus have to worry about medication strength? I currently have dwarf chain loach (b. sidthemunki)...

Betta fins suddenly shredded by Elaine T
Ack! I have 2 bettas in a divided 2.5 gal tank with a Nano Filter. I woke up this morning and both bettas' fins are in tatters. I'm talking total, heartbreaking shreds. Both were in perfect shape last night. I immediately tested the water, expecting to see ammonia but it was...

Does old water conditioner go bad? by DK[_2_]
I have a bottle of water conditioner about 4 years old. It doesn't list an expiration date. Would it still be OK to use to treat my tank water, or do the chemicals in it typically expire after a certain period of time?

freshwater plants question by Tara Legale
I just got an order of plants from That Fish Place, very happy with them. I have several corkscrew vals, 2 rad___ (something) swords, 2 dwarf onion plants and a moss ball. I only have a 10 gallon, so these amount of plants give a very nice, moderately lush setting for my community tank. I...

Pelcos- Do they out grow tanks? by Trevor Stenson
Hi, I'm a newbie to the group and picking up my freshwater Aquarium Hobby after 20 years. I had fish and two tanks as a youth for about 10 years up to the start of college. So I have a few questions I'd like to ask the group over the next few weeks. I hope I don't overtly display my ignorance. ...

Underground filters by John DeBoo
Years ago I had two of these and they worked well. What books I've read (published 1995 to date) seem to say they are good inexpensive filters to use. However, in my trips to WalMart, a local fish store, Petco & PetsMart, they seem to have all disappeared - else I'm blind. Are these little...

Future scenario for the home aquarium. by NetMax
A possible scenario for the evolution of the aquarium: If we start by examining the constraints, I think the 4 biggest are the purchase cost (people don't complain so much about the running costs), the space (large footprint in prime real-estate in the house, and difficult to move), the weight (we...

Neon tetras dropping like flies by Gill Passman
I bought 12 Neons for my new tank at the beginning of the month (just over 3 weeks ago). The tank did a mini-cycle which I fixed by seeding it (nitrites got to 0.1 so not massive). All settled down so I added 6 Panda Cories - 2 didn't make it but I got credit as the LFS believed that there might...

Aquarium air-pumps - which are best? by Koi-Lo
I'm so tired of buying airpumps that wear out in less than a year. We replace the diaphragms and flappers and the improvement is minimal. Sometimes they're even worse! Why is this? There is no cigarette smoke in the air and the house isn't dusty. Can anyone recommend an air pump that lasts...
