    Apisto fry question (again)

    Thanks for the info guys! So far I pulled the juveniles out that I could, there was 4 that I've seen and I've managed to catch 2 and put in a breeder box. They were stressing the mom and she kept attacking them. I've also moved the male to another QT tank I have setup because suddenly she wasn't...

    Apisto fry question (again)

    Thanks! Unfortunately I'm not sure if they cleared house the first time or if the other fish in the tank took care of the fry. I think I'm going to move the juveniles regardless.

    Juvenile apisto sexing

    I was wondering if it's possible to sex these apistos at this size/age. I think they're around a month old now. I think they could be female but I'm no expert lol. Thanks!

    Apisto fry question (again)

    So I have a pair of apistos that, a while ago, bred in QT. There were 6 kribs and 3 juvenile plecos in there as well. The fry were all eaten except for 2. I learned my lesson and moved out the kribs and plecos. Now, there's 2 juvenile apistos (still can't sex them) and the original pair bred...

    Apistogramma disappearance?

    They were small but I thought they were big enough they wouldn't fit in the kribs mouths. But apparently I was wrong considering they disappeared. The kribs are moved into another tank now, so if the apistos breed again it hopefully won't be an issue. I guess I learned the hard way.

    Apistogramma disappearance?

    So I've posted before about my surprise apisto fry in the QT tank. I think I had between 20 and 30 of them. In that tank, I also had 6 kribs and 3 juvenile blue eyed long fin bristlenose plecos (I received them at the same time so they were quarantined together. I wasn't expecting the apistos...

    Unhatched brine shrimp eggs

    Do you mean the container of the brine shrimp eggs in the fridge? I've been storing them in the fridge since I got them. It is of course possible they weren't stored properly before I got them. I'm currently waiting for my shipment of Aquarium Co-op eggs to arrive, which from what I've read, do...

    Unhatched brine shrimp eggs

    Thanks for the info. These eggs definitely sink when unhatched and the hatched eggs float at the top. I didn't realize it at first and definitely have fed unhatched eggs to my fry. So now I have been having to siphon the live BBS with an airline hose so the unhatched stay at the bottom with the...

    Unhatched brine shrimp eggs

    Hello all! I recently started hatching my own brine shrimp to feed my apisto fry. Since the fry were unplanned, I decided to order on Amazon so I could receive everything quickly. Turns out, the eggs I bought have a HORRIBLE hatch rate. I'm betting less than 50%. I have ordered better and well...

    Just wanted to share my excitement

    Thank you! That's the female and she has been an amazing parent. Maybe I'll try to get a pic of the male later because he is beautiful too!

    Just wanted to share my excitement

    So I purchased a pair of apistogramma cacatuoides from Aquabid. This was my first time using Aquabid so that whole process was exciting for me. I was constantly checking my emails and signing into my account (even at work lol) to check my bids. Anyway, I won them with a group of 6 unsexed...

    Repashy refrigeration

    Thanks! That's basically what I do. I only make enough that I finish it within a week so I haven't frozen it yet.

    Repashy refrigeration

    So I have a question about Repashy. I currently make Super Green for my plecos and other algae eaters. Once made, I always put it in the fridge like the instructions say. But I just saw at the bottom of the bottle it also says "Refrigeration will extend freshness." Does this mean I should...
