  1. Thanks I will try this! putting them in/near the filter seems the best so you can still have the lid.
  2. lol now I am undecided about the RTS So many choices.....
  3. I have heard that some people put just the roots(since it is not aquatic) of a pothos plant in their tank to help eat up the nitrates. I was wondering how you would keep it there without leaving the lid open? Has anyone here done this before, or could someone show me some pics of how this works? It sounds like a great idea and I would love to see how it works.
  4. Some websites metions that Barbs, Angelfish, ram cichlids, and Dwarf and Honey Gouramis would be ok with guppies. I don't know if all of these are really non aggressive. What do you think? Sorry, at this point I don't have much experience with tropicals so I don't know what exactly is classified as non aggressive, semi aggressive and whatnot.
  5. Hi, I've had tons of gf before, but I haven't been able to have very many fish for a while. Now I am starting up my tanks again and I thought I would like to try some tropicals. I have a 10g which is set up and I'm doing a fishless cycle with it right now. I also have a 55g which I will hopefully be setting up in a few months. I really want to breed guppies in the 55g and use the 10g as a nursery for the babies. But I would also like to have different kinds of tropicals in the 55g since it's a decent size. Since I am relatively new to tropicals I have been doing a lot of research, but the problem is that every website says different things. In your opinion, what kinds of fish are compatible with guppies? I also would really love to get a Red Tailed Shark. Unfourtunately, I know that they can be a somewhat more aggressive fish. I thought since the RTS is mostly a bottom dweller and guppies are mostly a mid-top level dweller maybe it would be okay IF I provided lots of cover and plants, and IF I added the RTS into the tank last and tried to find a smaller one. But I have no experience with these guys. What do you guys think? Would it be possible to keep a Red Tailed Shark in a 55g with guppies and other tropicals? If I do get one and it turns out they don't get along well, I suppose I could always put up a tank divider.
