    Tropical Storm (Hurricane?) Fay

    I'm right in the projected area for Fay (right where Hurricane Charley hit a few years ago and destroyed everything...) and I'm pretty worried. We've got all the shutters up, and I'm pretty sure school is cancelled for tomorrow (my first day of high school, bummer). Getting all those flashlights...

    Betta Drawing

    I wanted to draw a betta, so I picked one from the many beautiful bettas from the fishlore forums. I drew Martinismommy's Dunn; its not very good (don't have white or pink) but I thought you betta people would appreciate it. I think I'm going to draw Devon's Esteban next. That is one handsome...

    Dwarf puffer tank (slightly improved and nearly cycled!)

    Here it is, my 12 gallon dwarf puffer tank, a couple weeks later and almost ready to house one. I'm thinking about switching some of the plants. Today I found the nicest pet store in the area, and they had a big selection of fake plants, including those paper-like ones I have been looking for...

    Odd Nitrate Readings

    My tank is currently cycling fishless (Its been a couple weeks now), and these have been the readings for the past couple of days. The last nitrate reading seems a little weird to me, and I can't find any explanation. I'm using the API liquid tests. 2 days ago: Ammonia was at 5.0, Nitrite...

    Finally done setting up (Puffer paradise! I hope...)

    Puffer tank: Work in progress Okay, here is my tank as of now. Thanks for the really comforting and informative posts about real plants ( I'll remember for the future) but I don't have the right light and they both died. Silly me forgot to boil the driftwood, and that turned my tank orange, so...

    Plant Stuff in my Filter and Cloudy Sand Water

    Today I got the pool filter sand, live low-light plants (hopefully will live) and some other things to set up my tank. Now the water is completely cloudy (that will eventually settle, right?), and there is plant stuff (small leaves and such) everywhere. On my sand, in my intake tube, and in the...

    Question Dwarf Puffers and Cleaning Sand

    I'm getting a 12 gallon tank soon, and I'm deciding on future inhabitants. I thought that I'd make this decision before I fill and cycle the tank. Dwarf puffers seem fascinating, but I have a few questions. A) I read that dwarf puffers should never puff air. Will they ever accidently do this...

    New 10 Gallon Tank!

    Hello! I have never had a fish tank, and today I bought a tank that I was told was 10 gallons (picture attached). I measured the dimensions and it turned out to be actually about 6.4 gallons. There is a filter in the hood with a bio-wheel. I'm a little disappointed now as my stocking...
