    Back to the Roots 3g Betta Aquaponics Water Garden

    Finally managed to get the picture to work! So, I started this on Thanksgiving and the plants are already taking off. The betta, who my son named Charlie, is also doing well. Interestingly enough, the water already appears to be cycled. I'm actually enjoying this tremendously and...

    Back to the Roots 3g Betta Aquaponics Water Garden

    My husband gave this to me for my birthday. Has anyone had any luck with it? I'm hoping the fish does well in it. If not, I suppose it's a good excuse to get another tank.a

    Worms hiding in the gravel.

    There are mystery snails and nerite snails in the tank. We have done two big water changes this week. When we stirred up the gravel the catfish went into a feeding frenzy eating the worms. I sure hope that is okay.

    Mystery Snails Breeding like Rabbits

    I have started removing the egg sacs whenever I see them in the tank. Thanks for the advice!

    Worms hiding in the gravel.

    During a water change yesterday we noticed worms in the gravel. I have never had this before. I have always been so on top of the fish tank. Before my son was born we did 2 water changes a week. Now, we do them about once every other week. I called the LFS and they said to buy some clown...

    Mystery Snails Breeding like Rabbits

    So, my husband decided that we needed some snails in our 55 gallon tank to help manage the algae (I just noticed about 90% of my stories start with "So, my husband..."). He purchased 6 of them. They got to work on the algae right away, and the glass and decor in the tank has never been...

    What is wrong with my Roseline Shark?

    Any idea what is causing this? Water parameters are fine.

    55g Semi-Planted Tropical Aquarium

    Yes it is a Marimo. There are about 5 or so in the tank. We are debating whether or not to add more rosaline sharks or a school of Congo tetras.

    Long Overdue 55g Update

    Having an infant is making it harder and harder to post updates and I find my absences on here to be longer and longer as well. As I am trying to make this update my 8 month old son is stealing the mouse and trying to eat it. But I love him immensely and am enjoying watching him grow and evolve...

    55 Gallon Tank What else can I add?

    My 55 gallon currently has 1 angelfish, 8 black skirt tetras, and 2 clown plecos. Would I be able to add a school of Congo tetras? Or would that be overstocked?

    Perplexed... Any Ideas?

    Sorry if I sounded snappy. I'm just stumped about the perfect water parameters, 2 dead fish, and 4 other fish with ich. Something doesn't add up.

    Perplexed... Any Ideas?

    I already started treatment, I know how to take care of it. I'm just trying to figure out if the Ich killed the Cory Cats. And I believe it says what type they are in my signature. Perhaps as the JuliI Cory Cats pass away I will replace them with a different breed of Cory Cat.
