    Question Help with fry problem

    You could be right on the wrong timing when I added the zebras to the tank. ugh.... I really do not have a lot of hiding places in that 5 gallon. LED light bubble curtain and a sponge filter is it. Its just so odd that every single one of the Kenyi are dead but the zebras are fine. A real...

    Question Help with fry problem

    You will be surprised how easy the stripping process is. I wasn't a bit nervous about it and have stripped 3 now. The hardest part for me is just catching them. That's a real task in a 280. I was hoping I would have responses here on what went wrong with the Kenyi though but hopefully...

    Visiting The Big LFS

    Wow those tanks do look really nice. I wish I had a place like that close by. Those rays are awesome. Very clean looking tanks and healthy.

    Question Help with fry problem

    I am with you there buddy. The best way to spot a momma holding is to feed and if you notice any that are acting like they want to eat but wont. Also you can see them tumbling the eggs if you watch them closely. I always say its like they are chewing bubble gum. Their throat under the mouth...

    How to treat popeye?

    No Epson salt is not the same as aquarium salt. Although both are good for over all health. Personally I have never used Epson salt in my tanks but I have read where it can really be effective. My blood parrot had it only on his left eye and it was sticking out badly. Granted he was a older...

    Should I trade-in for this tank?

    What do you guys mean when you refer to the tank as a ADF?

    How to treat popeye?

    Popeye is a nasty condition and I recently lost a blood parrot to this as well as a bacteria issue. Is the eye protruding out? If so its fluid behind the eye and it could very well be from a injury. I caught mine too late but if its fairly early in the game its best. I have seen good results...

    Question Help with fry problem

    Yes this was the first set and I love the Kenyi breed so I was shocked to see the little guys all dead today. Its very strange but its all about learning I guess. You have some fry now?

    Stocking a 6 gallon

    I wouldn't recommend a 8 gallon tank. The smaller the tank the more work it takes to keep even a single fish alive. If you can go a 8 then just go a 10 gallon. Although 10 gallons still require a lot of maintenance - its a bit more manageable than anything less. If you are new to the hobby...

    Question Help with fry problem

    Okay I have 6 Red Zebra Cichlids that are about 3 weeks old maybe 4. I recently had 7 Kenyi fry that are only about 3 days old. I had the zebras in a 20 gallon long tank and the Kenyi in a 5 gallon with a sponge filter, bubble curtain for good water movement as well as lots of oxygen. I used...

    Help help help

    Those are the same fish?? I do not see any of that crust that was on them on the original post? How could that be unless it wasn't a fungus? They look fine now so I am confused.... Yes crushed coral can help with ammonia. The coral holds beneficial bacteria just as it does in a canister...

    Help help help

    Yeah that is a fungus and its pretty far along. I would add all the air to that water as possible like a air curtain with a powerful air pump. Do you keep API salt on hand? I am never without it and add it on a regular basis. I swear by it because it helps gill function, adds electrolytes to...

    Important Problem with return - Kensfish

    Mama! You should try some of his foods. He has so many options is what I like about it. The food also is not just to fill their tummies but many are for over all good health foods hence keeping your fish healthier.

    Question Should I worry?

    Well, that's just it that batch is my first fry and they were saved my mere luck (spotted in the sump). The yellow labs I did strip the mom and being the labs are so small I just wasn't sure if they would be aggressive at such a young age. You always hear about how to get the fry from the mom...

    125 gallon tank claims it's first victim

    Fact about me? I haven't tested my water for anything and I mean anything in a year maybe? Maybe longer? Do not obsess you guys. I'm telling you the more you worry about this has to be perfect and that has to be perfect actually causes more bad than good. I really believe that. I am not...

    Hydro Koralia evolution 1400/Blood Red Parrots

    Yes that would improve the filtration. You can still get a small power head or something later if you like and place it in the corner of the tank to get some more water movement. Just not so big for your size tank. Nothing wrong with water movement just gauge it right and you will be fine.
