    Fungus On Bristlenose Plecos Eggs

    I am on to my second batch of eggs and read that having a high pH can really contribute to fungus growth. Since I have hard water and am pretty near an 8 on pH, Ive been using acid buffer to bring it to a 7 and have set up a separate breeding tank. I am still using the breeder box because it...

    Orchids Anyone?

    Snake plants are really cool. Mine get fish water too My snake plant is putting off a bloom stalk right now! What do you mean by gritty mix? The key with most orchid potting mediums is to have lots of spaces with air so the water drains and the roots don't suffocate. Bark is a great option for...

    Goldfish With Lip Injury

    Goldfish With Lip Injury

    Thank you. I know people don't treat carnival goldfish well, but i don't want to even compare to that. I'm sad i haven't been able to give these guys a good home and especially sad because I've grown so attached. I think i need to get different test kits because the ones I'm using are hard to...

    Goldfish With Lip Injury

    I didn't know they weren't growing right. I actually thought they were growing really fast. And i didn't know the tank wasn't big enough either. I thought i was doing well.

Phals i do miracle grow orchid mix. One...

    Potted Habanero

    i'm real late to reply, but you could drill holes into the bottom of a 5 gallon bucket and add some stakes to tie up longer parts of the plant. i grow my tomatoes in 5 gallon pots on the patio in the summer because i have an apartment with no outdoor growing space
