    Just got a couple of Black Comets

    I've never seen them before, but I just happened to see two at the store last week. I couldn't pass them by. They are in the tank now and are very rambunctious, lively little guys. I think I have a male and a female. They are so much fun to watch. I guess because they are young they are...

    New additions

    One or two more visits to the store should finish my tropical tank. I filled out my Cardinal Tetra school up to 12. They seem happy. I got 3 Sunburst Gouramis to give the tank a splash of color. Next week, I hope to get 10 to 12 pygmy cories and maybe a couple of Sparkling Gouramis or...

    Moved my Clown to the 29 gallon.

    My Clown is about 6 years old now, and I figured I should move him to a tank with far more hiding places. So, about 3 days ago, I moved him into the 29 gallon tank, since it is understocked and over grown with plants. He seemed so thrilled and was exploring his new home. I actually got to...

    Is there a way to post videos without having to have a google account?

    I really don't need yet another email address and I certainly don't want to have to give so much information about myself in order to set one up! But I do want to be able to post videos on forums and Facebook. Anyone? Help??

    Tetra doing somersaults

    One out of seven of my tetras is doing somersaults. I've had this school of Cardinal Tetras for about 10 months and haven't done anything different to the tank except adding a little bit of fert for my plants. I only started adding some ferts because one of my anubias plants is blooming...

    Vent: Can somebody explain this???...

    Ok, Why does it seem like every place I go that happens to have a fishtank set up and serviced by some company, has the most absurd stock in it? Today I saw, in a doctor's office, a 75 gallon tank, maybe a little larger, that had 2 Bala Sharks, 1 Red Tail Shark, 2 Clown Loaches, 1 Albino...

    Odd clicking sound...

    HAha. My Sparkling Gouramis, aka Croaking Gouramis, are croaking! Noisy little guys. I guess they are happy with the home I've given them. I haven't seen any fry yet. I'm not sure I will. I would be neat, though.

    Starting to lean towards a Eastern USA native tank.

    I saw the Gulf Coast Pygmy Sunfish and can't get it out of my head. I found a native tank forum, they are pretty hard core, and am considering giving it a try. I don't know if I can go straight native, but it's worth a shot. The other forum doesn't have that many members, and not as much...

    Will a dwarf puffer over eat?

    I've got a tank full of snails. If I let a dwarf puffer loose in there, will he eat himself to death, or just snack as he needs it?

    Betta compatible with shrimp?

    I didn't want to hijack a thread, but somebody said that bettas and shrimp in the same tank would make for an entertaining tank. Did they mean by the betta munching on a pricey snack? Or can a betta really get along with shrimp?

    I lost the battle... and all of my Kuhlis. *teardrop*

    All was going so well. I bought the first 5 Khuli Loaches in April. About 6 months later I bought 4 more. All was going well until I gave in to my strong desire to get some Tiger Lotus bulbs. Against my better judgement, I bought the 4 pack of dried bulbs. I thought it would be a quick...

    Can a freshy be any help to a salty?

    My cousin started working at a small chain pet store and has gotten the salty itch. Of course, I immediately get nervous. How much can he learn from the store? That is quite a racket too. Pay your employees and get your money back by getting them into a hobby that you can teach them nothing...

    29 gallons: Something is missing... What are your thoughts?

    I’m eyeing my 29 gallon tank. Two of my 3 Sparkling Gouramis didn’t make it. One was obviously the runt and was always pale and small. The other got mysteriously sick and paralyzed. I tried to help him bounce back, but eventually, the snails got him. I have one left. He doesn’t seem...

    What did I do right?

    My five Kuhli Loaches are going crazy! I was told that they would do this, but I hadn't seen it before. I have a 30 gallon live planted tank with sand substrate, driftwood and plenty of places to hide. I know they are nocturnal, but since I bought them, even at night, they'd just come out...

    Strongly considering getting cherry shrimp of different colors

    My grandmother moved and left me her 5 gallon tank. Her betta recently died and now the tank is just sitting in my office with pond snails keeping it cycled. I have been reading up on shrimp, found some really pretty ones and am about to click "proceed to checkout". I will not do it for a...
