    Hello again... UPDATE: SEE POST #17 It has been five years since my last FishLore post and since I dismantled my aquaria before leaving for university.

    Thoughts on my 48gal Stocklist

    Copious amounts of floating detritus!

    Hello all It's been a long time since I stopped by here, good to see some familar faces about still! Site has changed but it still seems like the good old fishlore of old. Anyway. I've let my tanks slip a little in the past few years, and my big 180 litre tank has gone without water changes...

    50 Gallon Tank Any input on my tank?

    Hey guys I don't frequent this forum much anymore but I know you guys always have some unusual and creative ideas when it comes to fish stocking so I thought I'd drop a post to give my fish related musings some direction. The only tank I have running at the moment is a 180 litre (approx...

    Fish that SHOULD be more readily available

    Hello We've got a thread of fish that shouldn't be so readily available, so what fish do you think we should be seeing in shop tanks more often? I'm lucky enough to have an LFS that stocks many species of rare and unusual fish, so I've been able to get my hands on a Panda Garra. He's like an...

    Hello Everyone! Many of you have given me your kind permission to use you pictures in the Encyclopedia recently, and Firemouthguy has even written some new profiles! This has worked really well, so I've decided to let anyone add a profile to the encyclopedia. As long as it's a new fish that...

    Just how accurate is the Fishlore calculator?

    Hello everyone I have a Juwel Rio 180, advertised as 180 litres by the manufacturer. I put 180litres - gallons into Fishlore's calculator, and apparently it measures out as 47.56gals. I'm 90% sure that this is the tank's size. However, when I enter the tank's dimensions (converted into...

    Got any nice fishy Photos?

    Hello everyone A lot of you are probably familiar with my Encyclopedia Aquatica. It's a fish profile database I've been writing for the past few years; and whilst I have described the care of over 100 species I haven't got many pictures! The only pictures you can really use on the web are...

    Cory Barbell loss?

    Hi guys I haven't posted on here in a while... Christmas, other hobbies and all. Anyway, I've recently added 6 Albino Corys to my 47gal tank and I've been having a few problems. The tank substrate is black sand, which I thought would be ideal for corys. Now, after having them for a week...

    What on earth just happened!?

    Today I woke up... Went on the comp for a while, and decided to feed the fishies. I notice how I haven't seen Monaco the Betta today... I reasoned he was in his coconut cave (for a change!) or in the overgrown hygrophila forest. So I feed the community tank, and go over to Betta. I open the...

    My empty 12gal!

    Yes, if you read the title I won't have to tell you much more - I have an empty 12gal! I decided that my Black neons looked a little depressed in there - they didn't do much so I decided to set them free into the 47gal, which I can tell you they LOVE. They get on great with the other fish and...

    Why is a Cyprinid classed under Catfish?

    In the main forum page, there is a section called 'Freshwater fish and Invertebrates', and one of the sub-forums is 'Catfish'. If you click that link () then it will display several sub-forums.... So my question is: Why is the Chinese Algae Eater (A Cyprinid) classed as a Catfish?

    What do you guys think of my plans?

    Anyone know much about Sulawesi snails?

    Hey guys Does anybody know much about sulawesi snails? I've found a little bit of info on their general care - what I am somewhat unsure of though is their plant eating capacitys. Does anyone know how many plants they eat, and which ones they leave alone? Thanks!

    New betta tommorow!

    Yay! OK so recently I've been looking at getting a New Betta... I mean, my 7.5gal currently houses Ember tetras (They get to 0.80") and shrimp... Tiny fish, Tiny bio-load. So... Move them to the 48gal where they can frolic in 'the jungle', and I have an empty tank ideal for a Betta! So...

    Dwarf Neon (praecox) Rainbowfish Warning!

    Hi guys So a few months ago, I decided to buy myself some Dwarf Neon Rainbowfishes. Great fish! However, their numbers declined rapidly. Some of them appeared 'bruised', pale and sickly. Puzzled, I bought 2 more to replenish the passed fish. They snuffed it... So a few days ago I bought 2 more...

    Quick African Buterfly Fish Question

    OK so recently I've been reasearching African Butterfly Fish (Partly out of general interest, partly for a possible future plan.) and I have come to a difficult point - on almost all the pages I've read on them it says they may eat small fish whilst the fish are feeding at the surface... My...
