I never haphazardly do anything. If a betta’s recommended tank size is 5g, I’ll push for 30. I never like to have any animal in something not suited for them. Thanks for the link! I know most of the care, but I just need to find out what else could work, besides what I’m doing.
Thanks! I couldn’t agree more. I thought hard on what would work well together, and after a few months of research, decided what to do. The only problem is really the competition for territory, as you put it. The leporinus used to be in an entirely separate tank. Then it got moved into the “aggressi...
Thanks! I have plenty of experience with pets, and wasn’t planning on getting the frog any time soon, and have already done plenty of research towards the matter. The tank I’m getting is more than enough space for one frog. Anything I do when it comes to pets involves extensive research. I was just ...
Hi all, I am planning on setting up a 20g-long leopard frog tank from a tadpole kit I recently got, and was just wondering what other things can go with them. I was thinking about guppies, since they breed faster than the frogs might catch them, but I otherwise can’t think of another aquatic animal ...

Hi, everyone! I was just wondering if anyone else has ever had a problem with Petsmart’s ADFs. I’ve kept many in the past, but no matter what, they always tend to die of an unknown cause. The only ADFs I’ve kept for their lifespan were from a toy store, kept in a tiny cube. Am I doing something wron...

GSPs need a lot of room, and can get quite nasty, even with each other. Fully grown, they will need more than 20g, and though brackish is fine right now, they will thrive the most in full marine as adults. If you keep them, good luck, but be prepared. I find that GSPs are the most mistakenly bought ...
On its second day half-blind, the GT is learning to survive. Unfortunately, I do not currently have a separate tank to put him in, but I’ve been keeping an eye on the matter. I put melafix in the tank to avoid infection. The only one that seems to pick on the GT is the parrot, but the GT bites back ...
I’ll definitely try to quarantine it. Is it possible the popeye can spread? It’s weird that it happened so fast, when it seemed like nothing. The leporinus used to be with a piranha (which taught it to be so territorial), and got its eye bitten, too. Of course, it healed, and even half blind is the ...
Thanks! I knew from the start that putting anything with the leporinus was a gamble. I’d say he has a 50-50, seeings he’s acting relatively normal, but has a huge and vulnerable hole in his face. It’s a shame, seeings everything I was told said that he’d do fine with everything else.
Hi! I seem to have run into a problem with a balloon green terror that I bought at the LFS a few days ago. Yesterday, after I added the last two fish for the tank, I noticed one eye on the GT slightly larger and cloudier than the other, and immediately recognized it as popeye. I know that popeye can...

Though he is only an inch, his growth can still be stunted based on living conditions. I don’t think a ten gallon is too small, but do you know what the LFS kept him in and fed him? He could also just be a slow grower, if he is eating fine.
