  1. Fat Tony Needs YOUR Help!

    Watching - I'm curious to know what else might cause her to be so inactive.
  2. 10 Gallon Tank Should I get corys? Planned 10 gal betta tank

    Thanks - though if and when I get them, if it doesn't work it's a real question of who would stay and who would go! (As there is only a snail in the tank right now, I'm testing out various things to baffle the flow - if all else fails I'll cut up a water bottle into fun and exciting new shapes!)
  3. 10 Gallon Tank Should I get corys? Planned 10 gal betta tank

    I'm planning on this being a very heavily planted tank - if there's enough plants, could it work, or should I stick to just one or the other? Very heavily - i.e. so many plants you can't see one side from the other, so much that flow is baffled by it. (I have a strong filter)
  4. Help Gross fluffy stuff

    If they're not moving it's probably just one of the many algae that can grow in a tank, and it is probably harmless. Also, your profile says you don't know what the nitrogen cycle is. That's very important information when keeping aquariums, as a problem with it is the most likely thing to go...
  5. Hello! Saw corydoras and just had to start keeping fish :)

    Ah, cobra! Is there any chance you might be hanging out near where I am?
  6. Hello! Saw corydoras and just had to start keeping fish :)

    I love bettas the most but corys have taken a large part of my heart too. They're such wonderful fish!
  7. 10 Gallon Tank Should I get corys? Planned 10 gal betta tank

    After looking at dwarf corys, I think I might get C. hastatus. Could I keep them with a betta in a 10 gal, and if so how many?
  8. I'm so confused about the gender of my Betta.

    Well, I'm learning lots about Angelfish genetics from Bizaliz3's angelfish breeding journal, and find links to betta fish genetics on here too - I can almost always be counted on to the have the eclectic, mish-mashed group of knowledge on any subject.
  9. I'm so confused about the gender of my Betta.

    Ok - I knew there was probably something there I was missing lol. I just like the way fish look - my sole genetics knowledge comes from what I've learned from threads on here, to be honest.
  10. Dream/Goal tank?

    Oh wow! A cold saltwater tank sounds amazing! There are so many things in the ocean, and that's a section you never hear about. If you ever start it, I'll be watching.
  11. Help How to keep a betta tank warm without a heater

    I agree with Kgnao - for short term, stable temp is far more important than the correct temp, as long as it doesn't drop too low. I can't remember off the top of my head, but if the water gets below 68 f then you might need to worry. I do recommend towels or blankets around the tank though -...
  12. I'm so confused about the gender of my Betta.

    The ventral fins, (I think that's what they're called - the thin fins at the very front of the fish - I'm not that great at remembering the names of stuff in anatomy!) look female to me - they're shorter than a male's would be normally, and plus everything else makes me think female.
  13. 10 Gallon Tank Should I get corys? Planned 10 gal betta tank

    There's a chance I'll be able to upgrade my tank to a 10 gal, (or, well. I have the 10 gal, it just needs to be resealed. The chance is whether I will or not.) and if so, could I keep any corydoras in it? I've fallen in love with them and think they would look perfect in my tank. I have a 5 gal...
  14. Dream/Goal tank?

    A very large tank of yet undecided size, with a 'magical forest' scape, (Interesting plants, black substrate, and decor like a large central 'tree', clear/milky blue ornaments that look like mushrooms, etc.) Undecided corydoras, Undecided shrimp and snails, possibly a schooling mid-level fish of...
  15. What have I become?!

    I have a small collection (re, currently two small pieces) of driftwood I'm curing myself from stuff outside, so I also have to agree. The pesky snow is keeping me from getting any more right now though! I have some more in my tank, but I didn't pay a cent for any of it!
