    Tilapia Or Not?

    Anyone know what fish this is? It was in a pond with tilapia but it doesn't look like one.

    My Betta's Gone (coco)nuts!

    I made it and cleaned it out myself (that's why it looks so messy ) but yes, all my bettas love our attention no matter what we pit with them, most of them (not this blue boy though) even let my 2 year old stroke them

    My Betta's Gone (coco)nuts!

    Last night was time to sleep on the sword leaf so before lights out time I took a pic. He's wedged between the glass and the leaf and will spend hours sleeping like that with no need to swim, just lifting his head for the occasional gulp of air.

    Bell Pepper Delight

    No one needs to sex the pepper, its most certainly a female since its so spicy and hot as for mr/mrs pleco, I'm sure as it matures more I'll know.

    My First Spawn

    Despite daily tank watching I did not even see the eggs but it seems my Panda's decided to surprise me I have no clue if there are any others yet and I know chances of community tank survival is low but I'm still excited for this little guys success and I'm rooting for him!

    Bell Pepper Delight

    My little "boy's" growing up well, already ~6cm (+-2.3 inches) from the teeny tiny 1.5cm (0.6 inches) I got him at. It must be because he's good and eats all his veg also he doesn't like sharing with snails at all and swats them off with his tail, weird thing too is he doesn't seem to like...

    My Betta's Gone (coco)nuts!

    My blue boy has a rich lifestyle with his 3 homes here is a picture of him leaving his coconut, the next is in the java moss (right behind his coconut) and finally he has a fancy little spot between the glass and amazon leaf at the top of the tank. A- NO ONE is allowed more than a few seconds...

    The Colony

    Replaced all old plants with just Java Moss a while back and they seemed quite happy with the change. Might be going a little too hard with the tannin but so long as they're happy, I'm happy :emoji_blush:

    Mating Shrimp

    I know! I considered running for my phone at the very least but I had read how fast it all happened so I figured I'd rather watch then risk missing it... I WILL have my camera (or phone) with me for a few weeks now, probably until this hyped feeling goes away...

    Mating Shrimp

    So I was lucky enough to watch the entire mating and egg moving process last night! I fed them a small algae wafer which they go nuts for cause I wanted to count roughly how many females are berried, to my surprise a female that must have JUST molted came out (stupid stupid shrimp coming to a...

    Plant Id

    Thanks @midna I ended up getting the first one you labelled as alternanthera reineckii, I've been reading up and comparing pictures against it and it seems to be the correct one thank you! As for the lfs in general, they have a very lazy view on plants in the way that they're all cheap and...

    Plant Id

    Effects Of Replanting An Entire Tank

    I'll take a pic when I'm home but yes, just anacharis will be removed from my 4ft so I can turn it into a display tank and not a pond that it is, about 2 weeks ago I took out enough to half fill a 5g bucket, there's at least that much to twice as much more still in the tank left in there will...

    Effects Of Replanting An Entire Tank

    So I know the risks of adding too many fish at one time can cause a mini cycle to start, but what effect would adding too many plants cause, and more so, taking too many plants out of a stable tank? Details (if anyone wants to hear my full sob story ): my 4 foot tank has been running around 10...

    I love the striping pattern on that, I may just follow that suggestion if they turn out as well as you think.

    The Colony

    I'm only using tap water now, thank you for the tip on using RO, I have read that its best when you need very specific water conditions like what caridina need
