    My tank water is pink

    You have any driftwood in your tank? Could have some tannins leaching out in your tank somewhere.

    Ready for an algae eater! But which kind?

    Mystery snails DO NOT need brackish water to breed. They also make piss poor algae eaters compared to other fish/snails. As for OP, how bout a nerite snail and a few amano shrimp? I have 10 amanos in my 14 gallon planted tank and have yet to have an algae issue.

    Anyone else???

    I watch him but I really prefer watching Aquarium Co-Op and Steenfott Aquatics more since they deal in fish I personally enjoy.

    LED lighting for planted tank

    Unless you count algae as a plant I'd ditch it, I've heard good things about the finnex planted+ and it seems reasonable.

    Need help identifying snail species

    Well for one your lfs guy is an idiot. Only the smooth shell nerites are freshwater compatable. I would remove them and if you can return them for a refund.

    settig up new tank

    If you leave the water at a hard rate you could keep tang cichlids or a small species of mbuna. Although 8.6 is on the high side even for african cichlids.

    New to Cichlids

    1st one is a turquoise jewel cichlid, if you get a pair they breed like jack rabbits. 2nd one is a mbuna of some sorts. Probably a hybrid.

    Risk of using external cannister filters?

    Unless you screwed up with the filter installation you should have an issue with flooding. I havn't heard of anyone having flooding issues before.

    Question about 36 gallon tank

    So here is my 2 cents about your horrible tank stocking and what you really should do a bout correcting it. 1 adult Electric Blue Acara: I gennerally prefer keeping acaras in a 36" tank since they can get up to 8" in length. He might eat your danios down the road so be prepared for that. 2...

    Betta Tankmates

    Yeah no, 7 female bettas in a 10 gallon is too much. I would only do the 4 bettas and then bump the white cloud school up to 7 or so so you can have a proper school. The white clouds should help with dispersing aggression with the bettas so you should be good there. You might be able to fit a...

    Betta Tank Mate Suggestions

    Penquin tetras get too big for a 5.5 gal. I would just either get some ottos or some snails. I used to keep endlers with a betta in 5.5 but it might be pushing it.
