    Wow I don't get impressed easily but I got blown away. Do you have a video where you show each of your tanks? And more importantly did you make the backgrounds yourself and do you have a video how to make backgrounds?

    Tiger barbs can be a real pain with angels. With everything really. They’re so mean. I’ve actually kept them with African cichlids before because they were killing fish in the community tank and I needed to put them somewhere until i re-homed them. Good luck.

    I'm sure he's addressed it in another video, buuuuuuut what does Joey feed the fish that are too small to eat shrimp and whatnot? Specifically the smaller tetras and the guppies.

    Love the new Merch! Maybe in your next design it could be an Oscar, I know you could pull off an absolutely phenomenal design Also it would reach a wider target audience since more people keep Oscars than arowana or stingrays (just an idea) Loving the plywood aquarium, super excited to see that setup with the Oscars in there. Awesome content as always! Been a long time fan since your early days of "hello Joey here and welcome back" 🤣

    The utricularia plant is carnivorous. Eats microbes and what not. You can get a floating variety that can eat fry.

    Hey fellow fish lovers. I have a question for you guys. I want to get a stiphodon goby to place in my planted 20 gallon long. However I don’t know much about the best surface agitators to get for him. Any advice on what the best affordable surface agitator would be? Thanks guys :)

      Whatever your filter is plus an air stone should be fine. Also they like to be in small groups so maybe get at least 3-6?

    Blue tetras ? There are likely to be a variety of species sometimes sold under this name. Long ago I had some which were a shock - they looked like a community suitable small tetra, but turned out to have vicious little teeth which would sheer the fins off their tankmates. I've occasionally seen them offered in fish stores as a peaceful community fish, but with damaged tankmates. Hope that is not what you have.

      The gallery is heated and humid. In the almost 4 years it’s been running, I have found this not to be accurate. In a normal climate, sure. Not mine though.

    Just my opinion, the background on the planted tanks takes away/drowns the details in the driftwood, the moss, etc. A white background would make all the details pop.

    King of DIY, Ambassador of Aquariums, Emperor of Enthusiasm & Grand Warlord of Inspiration... ...You wear a lot of hats, or should I say, crowns there Joey. Hell, I'm probably gonna have to save up & buy your book. Your a good teacher. I appreciate all the free knowledge. I have learned quite a bit from You. Next you should turn an entire bedroom into a giant aquarium. That would be a 1st!!

    Absolutely love tiger barbs; kept them for years. Characters. And not as aggressive as they are widely known for, particularly when kept under ideal circumstances.

    • Not Sure

      I love tiger barbs too. I've found the key factor to be biggest school you can fit, have plants, and just don't keep with fish that have long fins. The gold and black looks amazing against the green from the plants and they're great schoolers.

      I love em, but have had the opposite experience haha. All mine have been terrible fin nippers and chasers with all combinations of other fish, tetras, cichlids, catfish etc haha. All been in huge tanks as well.

  • Freebackrubs Halfprice

    Heads up: That Utricularia graminifolia can be tricky to grow. It's a carnivorous plant that grows in bogs with practically no nutrition in the soil, hence the carnivoiusness. I've had best results doing a dry start method in a 3 or 4+ inch layer or peat moss covered in a porous substrate like lava rock. They don't really have roots so it grows almost like a moss just latching on to whatever it can or happily floating around if it can't.

    Joey, would you wanna do a video on the disease swim bladder? What you can do within the aquarium , Or you can do physically to help the fish which has contracted it? Would be a massive help! As ive had one of my Tyre track eels for over a year now and suddenly has developed it and nothing within the enviroment has changed

    Man...I hope you take the comments serious! Why why...put Tigerbarbs (Puntigrus tetrazona) from South-east Asia in that South America tank, where you ought to know that they are absolutely bad company for fish with long(er) fins! They will, sooner or later, eat the fins from your Angelfish! So...do mot put the Tigerbarbs in there!

    Hey I was had just watched this video last night , 1/20/21, but Green Aqua, posted a video today 1/21/21 where they include the very plants you used if your video like the uticularia graminifolia. In it he makes a "nano tank for beginners" but he says the carpeting plant ^ is one of the hardest plants in all of aquaria. Just some info for you! Hope things turn out great!
