    Question Baby Brine Shrimp

    Yes, I am aware that this one will get me nominated for the dumb question of the week, (late entry, depending on your time zone) but I need to know what to do with extra baby brine shrimp. I made a tiny amount. Maybe 1/16th of a tsp of eggs in the brine water, waited 2 days, and got enough bbs...

    Might be Ich...?

    Ok, final update to the sad saga of my tiny puffers: The one still lives. Unrelated to the Ich, but he has now completed a 7 day treatment with PraziPro, and boy did it work. He's grown like crazy in just a few days. He still won't eat anything but live food. I'm ok with that, and I'm working on...

    Can I use the skeleton of a long dead rhododendron as aquarium wood?

    Thanks. I'll see if I can find someone local, and see if they've ever tried it, and if it's worth the trouble... Rhodies are EVERYWHERE around here, to the point that some people consider them a pest shrub. (Insane, because they're gorgeous.)

    Can I use the skeleton of a long dead rhododendron as aquarium wood?

    Thanks. I will look up the correct method of doing that... And confirm that "spider wood" is in fact azalea. I thought that stuff was just small Manzanita roots.

    Can I use the skeleton of a long dead rhododendron as aquarium wood?

    I've got two dead rhodies in my yard, and while contemplating their removal the other day, I noticed that the dried out branches have a really nice shape to them. Does anyone know if these are safe for use in a freshwater aquarium?

    Stocking a 15g column tank!

    That was a bit of a tangent with someone else who had responded. I've been reading up on the fish you recommended. It looks interesting.

    Stocking a 15g column tank!

    Divided tank. Species only halves. I'm not a moron.

    Stocking a 15g column tank!

    I'm thinking about doing a 20g long, divided with Pea Puffers on one side, and either Sparkling Gouramis or Scarlet Badis on the other. I'm down to just one sad, lonely, little Pea Puffer now, so I will probably get him a couple lady-friends for his side, and then since I'm already live feeding...

    Stocking a 15g column tank!

    That sounds like an interesting fish. Definitely looking up that one. Thanks!

    Stocking a 15g column tank!

    I'm very excited... Just about ready to go with stocking a new (to me) tank I got a while back. I've spent months compiling lists of nano fish, and oh boy, have I got a long list. This tank is very limited in size of course, but I have others in the works, so I'm not tempted to overstock, just...

    Question Tannins from live plants?

    I didn't get pictures. My son came by to help me with water changes. He does this just to be kind, and I don't like to waste his time. Since the water change, the plants have lost a bunch of leaves and some are melting, so the water isn't looking great. Some of the same darkness to it, but...

    Question How to clean a snail tank

    Thanks. I have one sitting next to their tank... It just didn't occur to me that I could use it in there. Serious blonde moment.

    Question How to clean a snail tank

    I have a small tank dedicated to growing out and allowing snails to breed freely in order to produce snacks for my Pea Puffer. They have eggs plastered all over that tank, and there are many, many babies... Or I should say, were many many babies. While doing routine tank maintenance, I...

    Question Tannins from live plants?

    Bacopa, Jungle Val, Dwarf Hair Grass that isn't actually the dwarf variety, and Ludwigia Repens Red. I'm not with my tanks right now, but I'll take pictures before I change the water today. It's very weird.

    Question Tannins from live plants?

    They came wrapped in wet paper towels, in Ziploc bags. I rinsed them off, and put them in the tank, then used a tiny amount of Seachem Flourish after they'd been through a 24 hour light-dark cycle. (I didn't want to shock them.) I did a water change after another 24 hours, fertilized again, and...
