I'm in the process of building a free-standing 'indoor pond'.
It has a wooden frame that is lined with an EPDM rubber liner. It's an 'L'-shape and will to fit in a corner. As designed, there are 2 peek-a-boo viewing windows on the front faces of the 'arms' of the unit.
Do you think there would be an issue with water temp? From what I've read, guppies prefer slightly warmer water (72-82) than goldies (68-74). I've had male guppies in a tropical community tank, but that tank, of course, had a heater. The new aquaponics tank won't have a heater and will just be...
I'm currently working on building an aquaponics system that will include a tank that holds roughly 325 gallons of water. I'm going to be housing my 2 large 'common' goldfish, JJ and Lucy. JJ is a comet. Lucy is...round. ;)

Our sweet betta, Sugar, has been struggling lately.
I posted last month about a mysterious white 'lichen-like' growth she had developed over her left eye (pictured below). I took photos to our LFS and spoke with one of their aquatics experts. He couldn't provide a solid diagnosis and...
Over the past year, Sugar has developed this strange 'white spot' which resembles a lichen over her left eye. I noticed that it has a black pit (lesion) in the middle of it. When I went and spoke with a local fish expert at our LFS, he recommended treating her with a product called 'FishKeeper.'
My goldies have voted: ALL FINS DOWN on the new LED lights.
One of my fluorescent hoods recently kicked the bucket. In the photo below, you can see I replaced it with a new LED fixture. It's obnoxiously bright, casts really harsh white light into the tank...and the fish aren't having...
