    Free Blue Ramshorn Snails

    Got my shipment last week and everything was perfect! Looks great and the snails made short work of the bloom I had growing on my new driftwood.

    Starting A Classroom Aquarium!

    if you have a master kit, this is what I do: Measure the ph of your water and the ph of the water from the bag the fish are in (I don't worry about ammonia nitrite or nitrate, because there is no beneficial bacteria in the bag, so ammonia is usually through the roof. Float the bag so that...

    The quickest way to get the drift wood ready to roll

    I didn't like the tannis look until I had live plants. I think the tinged water makes the plants look super green and healthy, and the livestock more colorful. I've done multiple things for large pieces, but my favorite is a combination of steaming/baking. Basically baking it with a roaster full...

    10 Gallon Blog

    Okay so I haven't updated in a while! Since the last pic I've gotten watersprite, java moss, and some duckweed from Harpua, so it looks quite a bit fuller. Also the banana plant has sent up a shoot which is now looping around the surface of the tank. I've started to notice some inverts in the...

    Starting A Classroom Aquarium!

    Hi! What a cool idea! Fish tanks are very calming to look at and exciting to learn about, making them a great classroom tool! I agree with everything said above, they seem to know what they're talking about. I thought that you could use the API test kit as a learning tool to. You could make a...

    Question What Source Water do you Have?

    I'm the only one who has acidic water? My water comes from a local spring that supplies our neighborhood (I live so far away from civilization there isn't city water piped here)

    fishlore needs a chatbox

    we could start a google group or whatever they are called... Then it wouldn't be on the Fishlore site, keeping it family friendly, but it would be something that members could get on just to chitchat. I kinda like having it all here though, so some threads get hijacked but at least it shows...

    psalm18.2's RAOK Contest

    One of my favorite RAOK to do is whenever you are at a grocery store or supermarket (anything with candy bars at the cashier's isle) is pretend to be looking for a candy bar, and ask the cashier their favorite, then buy it for them! Its usually only a dollar or so and it makes someone else happy...

    Any suggestions for beginner's plants?

    sometimes you can play on a lfs employee's lack of knowledge, example: Me: *buying the fish I came to get, spot a nub of anachris in a tank* "Can you throw in that little dead leaf so it has something to nibble on the way home?" *bats eyelashes* Bumbling Employee: "Sure" A month later, I have...

    German Blue Rams

    I don't think the gouramis and rams will be a problem, as they tend to occupy different parts of the tank.

    Headache or heck of a buy?

    I think it depends on if you will want to upgrade a kit... I've gotten a kit before, then found I wanted to upgrade the lights, so new hood. Then I wanted to upgrade the filter so that it had a stronger current. New filter. The kit didn't have an adjustable heater... new heater. I could have...

    I don't have a book, but I would highly recommend a subscription to a fishy magazine. I have a subscription for Tropical Fish Hobbyist and I really love it. Every month there is something new, and they cover everything from ponds to nanos to plants to cichlids to livebearers... the list goes on...

    Baby Danios Help!

    Try soaking the food with some tank water in a shot glass/small Tupperware container then feeding with a medicine dropper. Then the food has time to soften and they can eat it better, but its not sitting at the bottom of the tank fouling the water... I've not had any experience with the...

    Baby Danios Help!

    Congrads on the babies! Danios were my first fry too! Wait until they are free swimming then feed them miniscule amounts of fry food (First Bites is what I used). Make sure to change the water and if you have some floating plants/moss hanging around I would definitely recommend tossing it in the...

    How far do you have to travel to the fish store you LIKE?

    Well, the closest chain store is 35 minutes away, as is the LFS. The best is That Fish Place, which is 2+ hours... I don't go often at all (maybe once a year) but it is my favorite, just to go and look at all the stuff...

    5 Gallon Tank Ewwww. Thread like worm in my tank

    Everyone in the link think that, yes that is planaria, and that they are not dangerous, just a nuisance. They also recommend heating the water to 35C for several hours... Edit: 35C is 95F! I wouldn't try this unless there was nothing else in the tank and you have a backup 'cycle' (aka...

    I guess it wouldn't seem as funny if you thought it was true... once you are done reading the story, read the intro. I never read prefaces before the story either because when I pick up a book I want to start the story. the only books I read the intro first on was the Lord of the Rings series...

    read the intro! He goes on and on about how much he loved the book as a child but nobody seems to read it because of all the boring parts and he can't find a copy to give to his son. He goes into great detail how he went all these places and met all these people to write the story properly, and...

    Is it ACTUALLY a condensed form? cause the original book has you believe that it IS the condensed form of another book, that of course, doesn't really exist... Which of course is the beauty of the book in the first place. If it is exactly like the movie though, it is probably, because there are...

    Heater or no heater?

    I kept a 55 gallon tropical community tank with no heater no problem... but the room they were in also housed the pellet stove, so it was never under 74, usually it kept a steady 76, so I think that that was a special circumstance... Normally I would never keep a fish without a heater...
