  1. What kind of pleco?

    Hey all I'm in the process of planning my pond out. It's still a year or two away from being dug but I've thought about other plans. Being in a northern climate pond season isn't terribly long realistically 5-6 months. I also wasn't thrilled with the idea of powering pumps or a heater all...
  2. What size tank?

    Hey everyone, been awhile since I posted anything fish related. I'm planning on building a pond in a year or two but wasn't thrilled with the idea of keeping it from freezing in the winter with pumps or heaters and generally not being able to watch the fish most of the year. I also wanted...
  3. Is it safe?

    So I have a terrarium piece of wood on rock. After a appearance of mold due to high humidity I removed it and bagged it. It's been sitting in a bag for the past year. While I didn't serve a great functional terrarium piece I'm in the process of planning a decent size goldie tank and it would...
  4. Can anyone explain?

    I see bulbs rated in kelvin but my knowledge of Kelvin is in measurable temperature on the Fahrenheit scale as Rankine is to Celsius. I don't understand how the same term can be used for colour temperature and physical temperature. To me 0 Kelvin is -460F I don't get the colour temperature.
  5. What's a minimum size?

    Hey all So at this point it's just curious and few gears turning for the future. I've always liked salt water tanks, the look of the tanks decor, the wide variety of fish, shapes, size, colours and also swim style. Salt water fish seem to move differently then fresh water. A lot more...
  6. My humble pet room

    Not to long ago into a house and ever since I've been in a constant state of trying to organize, clean and setup things up how I want. Often changing things as I go or after things are set move it all around again. I always wanted an indoor space that was just for me to relax (outdoor space is...
  7. Question Cat crate

    Hey everyone I've essentially adopted my sisters cat. In the coming months my parents and I will be moving a few hours apart. This will result in about 2.5 hr each way car trips to visit. Because I will need to take her along when I visit for the weekend this means more frequent time in a...
  8. 10 Gallon Tank My planted 10 gallon

    Snapped a picture of my 10 gallon tank. Small tanks seem to be the only way I can successfully grow live plants and have it look lush and green. Instead of part green part brown and dead. The grass plant (which I think is a micro sword plant or something like it) died off a bit due to the java fern...
  9. Morning surprise

    Despite attempts made in the past I've never successfully bred any fish. I first tried with a pair of kribs, I had wigglers a few times and free swimmers once or twice but they soon died. I then tried a pair of cons and still didn't make it past the free swimmer stage. My 35g has sat half empty...
  10. Help Will they be okay?

    Hey everyone Due to work being so busy I've shut down my pond later than usual. Despite the weather getting colder and lack of proper maintenance the goldfish seem to be okay. Even found a few babies while draining it. I've temporarily put them in my 35g. I usually transfer my fish to my...
  11. Help Which light to choose?

    With the recent noise the ballast in my current light/canopy single t8 bulb set up is making. I'm looking into upgrading the light and wattage. I have had good experience with hagen bulbs and their fixtures are in my price range. The current single t8 is rated at 20w on a 35g freshwater planted...
  12. Question Knee pads

    Hi everyone. Working as a HVAC service technician I spend a good portion of my day kneeling in front of furnaces or for other reasons during work. Between hearing stories from teachers in school and seeing co workers in their early 40s with knee problems. I don't want to end up like that. I...

  14. trailblazers295 35g and 10 gallon overhaul

    Two months ago after deciding to give up trying to breed convicts I decided to switch to a planted set up with schooling fish. I was considering a community set up but ended up landing on a school of tiger barbs. Current stock is 4 Tiger barbs 4 Green tiger barbs 4 albino tiger barbs 6 khuli...
  15. 10 Gallon Tank Is this okay?

    I'm in the process of upgrading my bedroom 5.5 gallon tank to a 10 gallon that I got from a friend. I am leak testing it at the moment. I'll be using the cycled AC20 from my 5.5 gallon. This is the current plan for the tank. Will this be okay? I wouldn't be stocking all the fish at once. Substrate: Fluval...
  16. Question How much fluval stratum?

    I'm in the process of planning my new 10 gallon bedroom tank. My 5.5 gallon will be sold after I take what I need. I've decided to go with fluval stratum for a substrate but I'm not sure how much I need for a standard 10 gallon tank, I am looking to have about an inch depth. I intend to add low light plants and...
  17. Question 35g overhaul

    I recently decided to get rid of the cons in my 35g tank. I have been doing a lot of reading of various options. Haven't really narrowed it down yet. I started out wanting Khuli loaches as I've enjoyed their swimming style for years. Is a 35g suitable for tiger barbs? If so how many? Any other...
  18. Question Which gourami will work?

    I'm in the process of overhauling my 35g tank, which previously housed a pair of cons. It is a mature tank which just went through a thorough cleaning. I'm not sure sure which gourami will work with my current proposed stock list. Looking at a gold, blue or powder blue gourami. Would they work...
  19. 30 Gallon Tank 35g - restocking

    Hello It seems everything is coming full circle started with my tank starting out as a community tank (angels, ram, tetras and a pleco), then a pair of kribs now currently a pair of cons which I'm attempting to get rid of. I am the only person who can keep them and not have them successfully...
  20. 5 Gallon Tank 5.5.g choices

    After a couple years it appears like my betta is getting old and less active. Sneaky bugger swims under cover of darkness when I'm not looking and stops when I do. This has gotten the wheels turning about what I might want as the next inhabitant of my 5.5 gallon. Other than another betta, what fish...
