  1. Want To Sell Sakura/fire Red Cherry Shrimp

    My shrimp colony grew over the winter so I have about 100 shrimp available. These are the highest quality RCS I've ever owned (deep red solid color) and were billed as Fire Red when I got them, which seems to be consistent with the RCS Grading sticky post. I can't seem to get a good picture of...
  2. 10 Gallon Tank New Digs For Crays

    My two baby crays turned out to be wild types and are growing faster and larger than I planned. Had to upgrade their tank from a 6g bookshelf to a standard 10 gallon. I'll probably have to get a 20 gallon long or give them each individual 10 gallon tanks eventually, but for now they're happy in their holes.
  3. Crayfish Id Help

    I rescued a couple baby crayfish from my LFS. I was told they were marbled crayfish but at the time they were too small to tell what they were. Now two months later one of them is enormous (~4" nose to tail) and the other is still pretty small (2.5" if that). They're both in the same tank...
  4. DIY HOB Filter

    This may have been mentioned already, but I came across this video a couple months ago and just had to give it a try: Basically built mine exactly the same way but with fewer fittings (top doesn't need to be sealed) and made my own bulkheads for the overflows using O-rings and PVC electrical...
  5. Free fish: Need a couple IDs

    Well, I got a tank full of free fish (18) and I need some opinions on a few. I've positively ID'd most of them, but I'm unsure of a couple. I think the single tetra in the two pics is a pristella, but not sure. The two yellow with black stripe I'm not sure about. What do you think? The other...
  6. 125 gallon: Dual Emperor 400s enough?

    I'm working on getting the new 125 gallon up and running using the equipment it came with for now, which includes 2 Emperor 400 filters (2 x 400gph = 800gph). The 400s do come with the extension tube, so it is pulling new water from the bottom of the tank not just recycling filtered water over and...
  7. Question River stones as substrate?

    Has anyone ever used medium sized smooth river stones (1" diameter) as a substrate with no gravel or sand? I was thinking of making a river theme in my 125 gallon and wondered if using only river stones might leave too little surface area for bacteria, be harder to clean, or cause other issues...
  8. New 125 gallon and 90 gallon tall

    So my father-in-law was doing renovation work at this guy's house, and somehow it comes up that he used to be big into aquariums, but has since become tired of the maintenance and wants to get rid of his aquarium stuff. My father-in-law, knowing that I'm "into fish tanks" says "Hey, I know...
  9. FS: Large Amazon Sword plant

    Okay, so I'm breaking down my 5 gallon setup and transferring most of it to a new divided 10 gallon, but I have this huge amazon sword that I just don't think I have room for in my new tank. It is about 12" high and has about 10-15 large, broad leaves. Most of the plant is very green, however there are...
  10. Cleaning algae-encrusted gravel?

    Okay, so I picked up a complete 10 gallon setup for free from someone who had gotten it about 4 months ago and no longer wanted to bother with it. Looking at the aquarium and fish, you can definitely tell. When I got it home I did some water tests to see how bad it was and there was 0 ammonia, 0...
  11. FS: Red Cherry Shrimp, Upstate SC

    My shrimp tank population is getting pretty high and I'd like to thin it out a bit. If anyone's interested you can have a dozen (12 + extras) for $10. If you want them shipped contact me for an exact quote (usually around $8 for Priority). I'll be shipping a mix of juvies and adults. If you...
  12. WTB: Female blue crayfish

    Well when I originally got my crayfish I got 4, but as all were juvenile at the time and couldn't be sexed I was hoping at least one would be female. No such luck, so the other 3 males have found new homes. So now I'm still looking for a female blue crayfish (procambarus alleni). Does anyone...
  13. Three of my tanks

    I just created my first three albums for three of my tanks. Too many to attach, so hopefully the link works for everyone. Hopefully I'll have better quality pictures whenever I get a better camera .
  14. Breeder tank idea, looking for advice

    Well, in my efforts to economize (both space and equipment), I had an idea that I thought might work, but thought I'd run it by the good members of FishLore to see if it just sounds good in my head What I had in mind was a tank (20 gallon long or 10 gallon) with two glass dividers making what amounts to...
  15. Question Has anyone seen these things before?

    Hi everyone. First let me say that I've found this site to be the most accurate and informative resource for fishkeeping of any sites I've visited. Sorry to post another "what are these things in my tank?" thread, but I couldn't find one with my exact question. So, some background on this tank...
