  1. EEK, creepy worm!

    I wasn't sure where to post this, I'm slightly panicking. So my 40 gallon tank has been pretty much fishless, and the water's slowly evaporating away. I don't do really any maintenance on it, lol. My plants are relatively alive still, so I pulled out an amazon sword to put into my new pond. I...
  2. I Need Stocking Help!

    So... what to stock my 40 gallon breeder with. The big debate. Here goes. 1. African Cichlids OR 2. Fancy Goldfish Please help me decide! Because I changed my tank setups so much in the past, I have determined that this will be my final, unchanging setup for a long, long time and I need to...
  3. Been a while + Puffer Info, Anyone?

    Wellp. Hello FishLore! Some of you might remember me, but I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't. I haven't posted or been on here since April, I believe. Over the summer, I really let my tanks go; I've done water changes and such but they are overgrown jungles, and several are filled with...
  4. Milky White Ghost Shrimp

    One of my female ghost shrimp in my 10 gallon has been a solid, milky white for several weeks now. At first, I thought perhaps she was ill and would die soon... it's been 3 weeks though. And she's eating plenty every day, very active (probably my most active one!) and seems perfectly normal...
  5. Bwah!! Cloudy Water!

    So, tonight I decided to go ahead and begin rescaping my tank. But one little thing... I left the fish in the tank while I began doing it. I took out the hardscape first and the plants anchored to them. Then I took out the rest of the plants. Then, I vacuumed out as much grime as I could, but I...
  6. Tannins Harmful?

    Are tannins from driftwood harmful? Or are pH swings all that I need to really watch out for? I have 3 pieces of driftwood I've boiled for a while and soaked for about a day now, while periodically draining and refilling the pot they are soaking in. I'm sure they've got plenty of tannins left...
  7. Pot Pond Schemes!

    I've had a lot of wacky ideas lately as a result of my growing MTS. First I was going to upgrade my tank and get bigger fish, then I was going to try and set up a 150 gallon pond, but I finally made myself say NO to both. ;D But now I've found an idea just too cool to pass up. I've been seeing...
  8. How Soon To Separate?

    Generally, how soon can you sex guppy fry, and how soon can they breed? I'm mostly worried about any males I might have. I have 4 fry in my 10 gallon that will be 4 weeks old on Monday. I've been trying to see if I can figure out their genders, as I'm trying to avoid inbreeding, and more fry...
  9. Will Blood Red Parrots Eat Small Fish?

    Soon, I'd like to upgrade my 45 gallon to a 65 gallon. While this probably won't happen for a while, I'm already thinking about possible stocking ;D In addition to the fish currently in my 45, I'd like to get one or two Blood Red Parrots. I've always loved their cute little faces, but my...
  10. Setting Up A Breeding Project

    I have a lot of free time available, and fishkeeping is a fantastic hobby for me. But now, I'd like to take it up a notch, and possibly make a good amount of money by breeding. I would really like some help and suggestions, as I quite obviously have never done this before! I've been seriously...
  11. Fry! and Wild-Type Guppy Questions

    Why is discovering fry for the first time (or really any time for that matter) so exciting?! ;D I found 4 quickly-growing guppy fry in my 10 gallon that have have somehow survived. They tend to stick together in the cover of my jungle vals though recently they've been getting very adventurous...
  12. Hatching Brine Shrimp

    I got some San Francisco Bay brine shrimp eggs a while back, wanting to use them as treats for my fish, my bettas in particular. I've tried hatching them once before using a soda bottle setup, but I didn't use salt. I waited several days but never saw them hatch -- unless I missed the babies and...
  13. "Centerpiece" Fish: once again, searching...

  14. Tank Water for a Bamboo Plant?

    Just sort of curious, has anyone by chance tried watering a bamboo plant (like lucky bamboo) with tank water? I was given some bamboo by a neighbor and I was wondering if I could use tank water rather than tap water.
  15. Plants, Lighting & Other Questions

    Been a long time since I've posted on FL, seems like ages! Wasn't exactly sure where to post this, as I have several questions but didn't want to do separate threads. Sorry if this isn't the best place :-\ First off, can anyone give me suggestions for some additional plants that would add a...
  16. Some Quick SA Cichlid Questions :)

    Been a while since I've been on the forum. Here I am again Due to their general craziness and problems they are causing at mealtime, I will be giving my school of Diamond tetras to a friend who has a cycled 20 gallon tank. I may also be giving them my sweet little Bristlenose pleco...I love...
  17. I've got Babies!

    My female chocolate-shelled Mystery snail laid a few clutches in my 10 gallon about 2 weeks ago, and the first just hatched a few hours ago! now I've got about 50 baby snails crawling around the tank with their mum luckily my female Plakat isn't bothering them yet, but I'm going to try and set...
  18. Mixing Shrimp Species

    Quick and simple question, I apologize if it's been asked before, but does anyone have any experience with mixing ghost and cherry shrimp, or is it a bad idea? I'm going to be setting up a few shrimp tanks and was wondering if I could put ghosts and cherries together.
  19. Some Silly Questions and Random Blabbling :)

    Anyone who is bored and/or feels like reading, please give some suggestions I've not been on the forums in quite a while and a bit has changed with my tanks. I nearly got my 10 gallon's layout to my liking (for those who don't know I've been working on it slowly over several months since my...
  20. Who has the Worst Case of MTS? ;)

    How many tanks do you have? If you like, you can also tell a bit about the tanks you have or ones you plan to set up! (The poll includes small tanks too, but not bowls or other creative containers. If you have any of those, be sure to mention those in your post! ;D) Not sure if there's ever...
