How do I stabilize bogwood? by Elaine T
I'm setting up a 15gal tall replacement for my 5 gallon tank. It's a very tall Oceanic Eclipse tank (20"x10"x20" high) and I thought an asymmetric V shape with two pieces of plant-covered bogwood would make a beautiful Amano style setup. I've found two pieces of long, 3" wood but they're rather...

Talking about Betas by Mermaid
I have an old beta that I have pampered in a large, peace lily arrangement for about 3 years. Must be a record. Anyway, when I set up my new planted tank, would he appreciate being in a new environment or because of his age, do you think it would be too much for him? He might get lost in the...
