  1. Do You Keep Track Of Fish Purchases?

    I don’t … maybe I should. Last month I lost 4 glass catfish, not all at once but over a period of a couple of weeks. I’d just purchased 8 black widow tetras and they were all fine. Water perimeters were perfect … what could it be? After going through fish profiles for a possible replacement it...
  2. Thought I Made A Huge Mistake But…

    It’s been a while since I’ve posted something here, I guess it’s because things have been so stable with my tanks but I recently made a change. My 65 gallon was looking a little sparse so I bought 8 black widow tetras to go with my 3 glass catfish and move the angelfish to my 75 gallon cichlid tank. The...
  3. Free Stuff Pros & Cons

    Scored a free 29 gallon with fish & stuff! Pros: the owner was relieved they were going to a good home Fish I’ve never kept before More food & equipment Another tank!!!!!

  4. Back Into Cichlids

    Decided to go for semi-aggressive cichlid tank and I believe I have a good mix. First of all, the aquarium is 75 gallon with 4 pictus cats, 6 colombian tetras, and 6 gold barbs. I added a fire mouth about 6 months ago and recently added 1 convict, 1 gold severum, and 1 bandit cichlid. The fire mouth...
  5. Compatibility Question

    Are Bolivian Rams more compatible with 1 Firemouth in a 75 gallon or 1 Angel in a 65 gallon? I want a group, probably 6 in the 75 gallon; however only a pair in the 65 gallon.
  6. Aquarium Heaters Question

    I guess the answer to this question depends on many things but for the average freshwater setup; how important is a heater?
  7. Bgk … Luv

    I've had this BGK for about 2 years now and over that time, life has been hectic. With demands from my job and family, I really didn't have time for regular partial water changes and feedings. Now that things have slowed down, I can enjoy my tanks again and take care of the things I'd been...
  8. Looking to add cichlids

    I've always been crazy about cichlids and have kept a few over the years but currently have none. I have a 65 gallon and a 75 gallon with tetras, barbs, and catfish. The 65 gallon is my focus right now and I plan to add a single angelfish and a pair of Rams. The 75 gallon is more of a challenge being stocked with a...
  9. At first I didn't, but now . . .

    I've got a 65 gallon and a 75 gallon; both freshwater and both planted. I spent a great deal of time with the 65 gallon as it was the upgrade for my 29 gallon so everything that was in the 29 gallon went into the 65 gallon. I had a plan for the 75 gallon but I didn't really want to spend a lot of money so I used what I had. It looked ok...
  10. Small Fish Are Cool Too

    I've been keeping fish for a little more than 20 years and I've always kept large fish; cichlids mostly. In the beginning, I just wanted to keep something alive. Long story short, cichlids proved to be very easy to keep but there were so many of them to choose from; I was in love. A few years...
