    Question Emerald Dwarf Rasboras

    I have had emerald dwarf rasboras for over 3 yrs and no matter how many I add to the shoal, I can’t get the fin nipping to stop. Anyone else have similar issues with their edr’s? The tank is planted, not as heavily as I like but getting there (upsized from 20 gal long to 29 gal). I had upwards...

    Question When A School Becomes A Few

    i was wondering what others do when their school or shoal of a species of fish begins to die off and you are only down to a few fish. For example, I have a shoal of emerald dwarf rasbora that has slowly dwindled over the years to 6. I plan on ordering more but what do others do? Let them...

    Trins A+++++++

    I recently ordered from TRiN’s and wanted to give them a quick shout out. This is the 3rd time ordering from them and every time has been excellent.

    Bumblebee Goby & Petco

    I was fooled...awhile back I got a bumblebee goby on a whim from Petco. An awesome fish and was told it was the freshwater variety. There are several species of this goby and only 1 (as far as my research shows) that is true freshwater which is Brachygobius xanthomelas. So I noticed my goby...

    Impossible To Prove...

    but boy is it hilarious to watch! I’m convinced that my amano shrimp are pranksters. They will walk up on an unsuspecting fish that’s looking the other way and touch them with an antennae...no sooner does the fish turn around, the shrimp scampers away! Meanwhile the fish is looking around half...

    Emerald Dwarf Rasboras

    Celestichthys erythromicron I have kept these guys for several years now and have noticed when I do not have enough females in the shoal, fin nipping occurs. Recently, it’s become so bad that I’ve lost 2 of them, likely due to the stress of being harassed more than the nipping. It’s difficult...

    Anyone have experience with this company and their products? I emailed them to find a retailer near me as they only sell through dealers not online.

    Big Sale Aquatic Arts

    I highly recommend this site for high quality, responsible, and mostly tanked raised fish/inverts. They are currently running a huge sale over the next few days. Admittedly, I have a bit of a soft spot for them as he let me use my sons adoption as part of their adoption program.

    I had a setback in the tank my recently purchased vals were to be planted in. It might be a week or so until I can get them planted. I currently have them floating in another aquarium. How long can they stay floating? Should I just get a small Terra cotta pot with soil capped with sand and...

    I am wondering if anyone else has an allergic reaction to artemia? I’m not allergic to anything that I’m aware of nor have ever had allergy symptoms before.
