  1. Question Help Id These Snails Please...

    I’ve been doing aquariums for 40+ years. One of the things I like about this hobby is that we’re always learning! A year and a half ago I got given a BUNCH of snails. I put some in my tanks and some in my outdoor pond. This summer I managed to find that the ones I’d put in the pond had survived...
  2. Water Changes In Rcs Breeding Tank

    I’ve never posted in this thread but scanned through and haven’t seen much about this. When I do a WC in the RCS breeding tank it takes forever! I do between 20-30% each time. All parameters are good. It is a 10 gallon. I have a Penguin 100 bio-wheel with a sponge on the intake so the babies stay...
  3. This Article Will Make You Think Twice About Aquarium Trade

    I thought this was a good read. I'm not printing fingers. This article was posted in another forum and I thought y'all would find it interesting. People Are Killing Millions Of Fish Each Year Just To Stock Aquariums
  4. Dot's 10 gallon Planted Nursery Tank

    I've decided to set up a dirted 10 gallon planted tank to use as a nursery tank for my other display tanks (though I've only got 1 display set up right now, it's a 265 we finished building and set up in December). I plan on setting up at least two more tanks. One 29 gallon planted tank for my bedroom and...
  5. Producing Extra Slimecoat?

    Hey everyone! I've got an issue that I need help with. Godzilla seems to be producing quite a bit of extra slime/mucus. Parameters are in this picture: I did a 40% water change yesterday. No one seems stressed or is exhibiting any symptoms. It's just Godzilla. It's a lot like he did when all...
  6. Coming Home With My First Puffer!!!

    Hi y'all! I'm certainly not new to aquaria. I have a cycled 95 hex sitting empty so after some research I've decided to take the plunge and get a puffer. We haven't gotten a name for him yet. I imagine that once he gets settled he'll be a happy puffer as this tank and many of my other are...
  7. Holy Moly We Have Eggs!!

    I'd not planned on doing any breeding. Apparently my angles have other ideas!!!
  8. Anubias lanceolata looking pale

    Help everyone. I've never had this type of anubias before but I LOVE it. I have had these for about two weeks and the older leaves are starting to blanche a bit. The smaller newer leaves are a little lighter than they should be (I think) but look much better than the older leaves. I'm wondering...
  9. What are these things?!?

    I may be posting in the wrong part of the forum but couldn't find the Freshwater fish disease area. I found these things in my 95g tank this evening. I lost one Angelfish about two weeks ago and lost another this morning. I noticed these little white gnats floating on the surface of the water a few...
  10. Dot's 260g build...

    So even pouring rain can't stop be from an aquarium. Three trips back and forth from town to home, one of them getting the trailer because it was too big for my truck or my daughter's! This tank is second hand and began its life as a display tank at our local nail salon. They needed more room...
  11. Starting new planted tank need help to pick the right dirt to start with.....

    Okay, I'm getting a 250g tank that I want to make a planted tank. While I've had the odd live plant here & there I've never done a large-scale planted tank before and am in the homework stage. The tank should be here next week and I can start setup in earnest then. In the meantime I want to do...
  12. Fish disappearing....POOF!

    I got 9 Koi Angles last week. They were healthy and active. I watched them like a hawk for any warning signs of sickness, etc. I've seen NONE. Okay a couple days ago one disappeared. There are no 'pieces' in the tank. No fish in the HOB. No fish stuck on the uplift diffuser. Nothing. I did my...
  13. Undergravel uplift tub cap??? Any ideas???

    I'm cleaning my 10 gallon and have found that the pump I had stop the uplift tube for my undergravel filter has died. I have to wait for payday to get a new one. I don't want to take the tube out and have to just rearrange the tank in a week to put it back. But I don't want anyone to swim down it and...
  14. My fish-cat

    No that's not a typo! I wasn't sure exactly where to post this but couldn't pass up sharing! I was doing a water change in the 95 this evening. This is the tank the cats like to get on top of and use as their giant water dish. I'm in there with my reacher putting some of the pebbles back the way...
  15. Thinking of building a 150 gallon tank from scratch...

    I have a common Levi that will be outgrowing my 95hex in the next year or so. So, I'm thinking of building a 150 gallon tank. If I use plexiglass I can do the cutting, etc., but I'm concerned about how easily it scratches. If I do glass then I'd have to have the glass cut this adding to the cost. I...
  16. Temperature Requirements for Malaysian Trumpet Snails

    I know this is an older thread but as a new member I just saw this. MTS snails are great but I was wondering what their temperature requirements are and if they would survive winters if I put them in my pond? I live in central Kentucky and we hear the pond during the winter. Usually it ices very...
  17. Introducing Mike & Sully

    Mike and Sully were adopted by us when they were two months old. They were nurse mare foal rescues. It was shortly after Monsters, Inc. came out and the horses were for each of my daughters and they got to pick the name. Mike is the bigger one and is a paint Quarter-horse/Percheron and Sully is...
  18. Introducing Skipper

    This is Skipper. He's a Blue Fronted Amazon. As best we know he's in his late 20's to early 30's. We're his third owners. He was kept in his cage a lot when he was younger and so his wing muscles didn't develop properly so, he can't really fly and so "falls with style". He was given to my...
  19. Introducing my doggies...

    Here's a pic of my dogs together. When I took this there was a thunderstorm and my lab (who is my retired service dog) is afraid of them. Our Catahoula was comforting him.
  20. Some of our kitties...

    We have quite a menagerie here! Along with our aquariums and pond we have 7 cats, 2 dogs and a parrot. But here I want to brag on my kitties... The is Bragheera. My daughter and I found him on the road in the middle of the night just by his eyes! This is Box-Car, "Box" for short. He was found...
