    Bacterial Bloom/New tank Syndrome

    Ive had my 4 gallon planted tank set up for about a week now and the bloom has gone down a little but my plants, substrate, and hardscape are completely covered in bacterial colonies. Most forums say to wait it out and it will eventually balance out. I ended up adding some ceramic pieces to my...

    Hello from Indonesia

    Hi folks, Nice to meet you all. I had a marine tank long time ago before the internet and I remembered how difficult it was to start and after two years there was a catastrophe and all fishes died. Then I abandoned the hobby. I didn't know about New Tank Syndrome or Old Tank Syndrome back...

    I am planning to re-scape our tank but will need to have temporary accommodation for the fish (5 Endler's Guppy, 1 Danio, 5 Amano shrimp and 5 Nerite snails.

    Adding the first fish into a new tank

    Hi, It seems that everyone agrees on this forum that testing the water is useless as the tests are not accurate enough, giving false readings. So, how do you when it is safe to add fish into a brand new set up tank? Sorry for what might seem like a stupid question, I'm new to this great...
