    20 gallon high

    I decided to upgrade my 10 gallon to a 20 high. The stand the 10 is on can hold a 20 high but not a 20 long. I got the tank on sale and only had to buy a 5lb bag of black sand and a nice piece of mangroove root I found. Already had the glass top, a cycled AC 50, heater, 15lbs of black sand, and...

    Best light for 20G long?

    Whats the best light for a 20G long? Right now I have a cheap led strip light on mine and the only plants that seem to enjoy it are anacharis and they grow very slow. My biggest concern is price, I don't have a lot of money to spend on a fancy light so if anyone knows a good light that isn't too...

    New 20 Gallon! (Yes, Another)

    Yes, the exact same 20 gallon before. I found another that is pretty much 2, 10 gallon tanks on top of another. I went to my LFS to find some fish to put into the tank and became completely overwhelmed. I had so many options. I decided to get 4 rummy nose tetras. I want to get 1 more. to add to...

    Mosquito Fish Trouble

    I have a male mosquito fish who is all by himself. I would like to move him into my tetra tank with 8 tetras and 3 long finned danios. Will the mosquito fish attack the fish? I also have a 20 gallon tank that I think I am going to convert into a tiger barb tank. Would he be better off in this tank?

    20 Gallon Tank Fish Ideas

    Hi, I have a tall 20 gallon tank. I was thinking of giving my 3 guppies and white cloud minnows into the tank. However, I was thinking that I could do some other schooling fish instead. One fish that instantly crossed my mind: Tiger barbs. I love these fish and they are the size I find...

    20 Gallon Angelfish?

    I recently have gotten a new 20 gallon fish tank. I am going to switch my 3 guppies, 3 white cloud minnows and 4 inch goldfish into the tank. I have always had a fascination with angelfish. I was wondering if I could put just one angel in the tank with the other fish I have. Is it possible...

    Converting 20 Gallon Hex

    Alright so long story short, I now know why people don't like hex tanks when compared to normal rectangular tanks. After I re-homed my angels I considered trying a crayfish or maybe a couple of African Clawed frogs but I think I want to give reptiles a shot. My tank dimensions are: 21" height...

    Hey guys! I'm in the process of cycling my 20gal high freshwater tank with AquaClear 50 HOB (almost done!!!!!!! double-checking later this evening to see if 3ppm NH3 were cycled to 0 in 24 hours so fingers crossed!).

    New Member/Aquarist

    Hello everyone, I'm fairly new to the Aquarist hobby. I bought a betta fish for my desk at work, but didn't want to put him in a bowl. Instead, I bought a 2.5 gallon ready-made aquarium from Tetra. I decided I wanted to do a planted tank, so I upgraded to a 5 gallon tank, and then a 10 gallon...

    New Planted tank, CO2/Oxygen

    Hi guys, I've just redone my tank to add plants and junk, but my questions is, Im assuming I need to take the oxygen bubbler out because the plants need CO2 not oxygen, and they will provide oxygen for the fish themselves. But I'm thinking I need to provide CO2 for the plants? how does that...
