    All 8 Neons Died Within 45 Minutes From The Store

    I would take them back to Wal-Mart. I would bet it's a fish issue. The one time I attempted to buy at Wal-Mart the guy smashed the fish between the glass and the bar in the net. Needless to say the fish went immediately belly up. Never attempted to buy their fish again. I'll pay an extra dollar...

    Try a private fish store if you like saltwater fish. My local guy hires students over the summer and teaches them a lot. From sexing seahorses to testing and maintaing tanks.

    Haitian Reef Anemone

    Unfortunately I lost them all. Still not sure why. Only thing I can think of, but store said no, was I finally found the dead turbo snail. Water quailty was great even with the snail so he wasn't dead long. No more additions of anything for me for a while. When I lost my puffer I said the same...

    It's really strange because they keep changing what they look like. I'll post pics. I had the store test my water vs their water and parameters were the same. I thought water differece would be the issue. I brought them home in a 5 gal tub of store water. They deflated but I thought maybe...

    Question Is My Green Spotted Puffer Okay In A 20g High

    I've had several of these cute guys. Has to be my favorite due to personalities. I would go a bigger tank. You can start in a 20 but would need more space as he grows. Mine learned to eat from my hand and my footstep. They knew when I was coming and came to the glass every time. Glass surfing...

    Green Spotted Puffer Fish Help!

    I've had several diffrent types of puffers. I never had success. They are wild caught so always have internal pests. Have you dewormed rhem? Did the store deworm them prior to purchase? Snails usually keep their beaks trimmed pretty well. Mine did eat snails on half shell. For the glass...

    Ever Receive An Order Of Fish That You... Didn't Order?

    When they reopen contact them. They will probably resend your order and tell you to keep what you were sent. Extra Christmas present for you. It happened to me once. That's what the company did. Hard for people to send fish back if not knowledgeable in doing so.

    Nassarius Snail Question

    They bury. Usually don't see them. Only at night or occ when feeding fish. Lately I've been seeing them more and on the sides of the glass. Both were on my new snail fast. They had their black tenticles probing where his trap is. I've now lost him. He died either before I got him in quaratine or...

    Adding Some More Fish To My 60 Gallon "african" Tank

    Maybe. Dwarf puffers are about 1-2 inches so pretty small. Also known as pea puffers. South American are about maybe 4-5 inches and the leopards are a little bigger. If you have a pond you could consider an MBU puffer. They get a lot bigger. South american and leopards will eventually need...

    Adding Some More Fish To My 60 Gallon "african" Tank

    Hi your glass cats are a very peaceful fish and like schools of 6-10. Cichlids are very aggressive towards every fish.So I don't think they would fair well in the same tank. Killifish would tolerate the water requirements but again ..wouldn't fair well with the cichlids. have you thought of a...

    Oh my gosh they get BIG. I can see how you could get a nasty bite. Jabba is absolutely out grow his home.Thank for sharing that site. I think the addition of Turbo has made him brave. He has been spending a lot more time out and about vs in his little self made cave.

    Strange Acting Lawnmower Blenny

    Omg will he get bigger than 5"? He is very funny. He burrowed a little place under the rock which is where he usually stays. Yesterday was the most active I've seen him and I've had him a few months. He's almost doubled in size. Most of the day he harrassed Turbo, or perched on the heater. He...

    Strange Acting Lawnmower Blenny

    I didn't think of that. Maybe. But he was trying to grt to Turbo's foot. I think that's what they call it. I know they'll bite and scrape tangs. My friend got rid of her lawnmower bc it kept biting her tangs. Maybe because they eat the same food as the tangs. He doesn't mess with my spiny star...

    Hey I'm a master diver/rescue diver. Never seen on in their natural surrounding but have heard they bite. Although he has never bitten me. He's a lawnmower blenny. This not good. He is NOT allowed to eat Turbo. Yes. It's what allows him to have a nice home. Other wise he's a really dirty lot...

    Strange Acting Lawnmower Blenny

    Hi I have a lawnmower that about 4" now. He's (Jabba) is quite a messy fish and his nature was to usually hide in his rock/ sand hole/cave. He would always make an appearance at feeding time. He's fat and healthy. Here's the strange thing. Because he's so dirty I added a Turbo snail (named...

    Can Gardneri Killifish Be Kept In A Community Tank With These Possible Tank Mates?

    Killifish like a ph of about 6-6.5. They are considered annual fish bc they live about a year. Iprtsonally think they are the most beautiful fw fish. They are also peaceful fish. Others may be better to answer about the honeys as I've never kept them. My fist thought would be no. Corys would...

    What is his water temp. Some times if it dips there color fades. We can fix him. I helped a girl that her fish had fin rot so bad it had a stump for a tail. It's taken a while but his tail is coming back and his blue color is back. He had turned almost completely white. Can you do an updated photo?

    What is the water temp? If you don't have a thermometer its ok. Stick you finger in and see if it feels cold or on the cooler side. Bettas like warm water. You could always use a deep bowl ...like a butter tub or similar to put her in. Use warm water and place her in. See if she livens up for...
