    DoubleDutch's tanks and fishies

    The bristle nose is a real cutie pie Dutch. I never thought about feeding them brussels sprouts but mine do get asparagus and broccoli. I have one bristle nose with real bristles nowand an albino with bristles and one upside down catfish. Then there are the three huge sailfin Pleco‘s who are...

    Zed’s lesion is healing and he is acting more normal. The betta tea and sulfa did what the dips did not. Little Redeye dives headfirst into a colony of blue rams horn snails. NOM!!! Little Lemon Butterfish lives in the outdoor sump behind the heater and under the pumps in a spot he cleaned...

    Betta Zed taken Ill

    BTW, Zed lives in a 10g but water reduced to 5g because the drugs are expensive here. Also so he can swim up to breathe on the surface easily. He has two old sponge filters and an Aqueon10 HOB, slightly modified, propped right inside the tank, because of the low water. He currently lives with 7...

    Betta Zed taken Ill

    Thanks Sputnik. He is getting 50% water changes, alternate days. Some Betta tea I brew, a bit of salt, and triple sulfa each day. He has a lesion, infected, and I have dipped him twice in a Methelyene blue prep. Maybe the slightest pineconing, but I think it’s going too. That killed the...

    Betta Zed taken Ill

    I have owned a dozen betta fish and Zed is my last remaining one. I have probably posted this photo here before. He is also the only betta I have ever bred in captivity, and he is about three years old. Unfortunately has taken ill and I have been treating him for nearly a week. This is my fault...

    Scary Larry is disassembled. Little Zed is still suffering and I have been trying to save him. I gave him another dip and changed water repeatedly. He is lethargic but swims strongly if I prod him. The main system is doing really well.

    I am expecting no trick-or-treaters, but I put up a little effort for my wife, who loves holidays.

    Little Zed is hiding out behind his filter. He seems to be much recovered from his patch of mouth fuzz. This was my fault because I subjected him to a tank over populated with guppies. I had also run out of almond leaves a while back and I had forgot to put the black water expert into his tank...

    Meet The Fish...

    I have been making some Big water changes back to back for the past two days because I have neglected all of my tank cleaning while I play with other things. If I was smart I would’ve cut back on their feedings as well but of course I wasn’t that smart. Anyhow cold weather has returned and I...

    Meet The Fish...

    It appears the Big Creek fire became the largest recorded in state history. It is now 50% contained, and the smoke and ash has let up a lot, so I've been busy wiring up the toolshed and the workshed, and learning to run thinwall conduit. Meanwhile all the fish are OK and the plecos are doing...

    Wondering what everyone looks like?

    I guess people just don’t get the fact that almost every single hobby is overrun with old retired white dudes. It’s because we invented hobbies. ;-) Now I can’t prove that, but I Consider it a solid bet.

    The smoke has just been sitting here because there is no wind but finally today it started blowing off a little more. But it’s a huge state and so how bad it is depends on where you are.
