Maybe one day I will get them... Right now the peacocks are going into a 60 gallon (48x18x16) so I think adding 3 or so of those angulatus would probably be too much for the tank? It's over-filtered and I do pretty large water changes weekly, but my main concern would be putting them in a tank...
Now that you point that out, I can definitely see how you see that in the photo. That definitely could be the case, but they look exactly like a hatchet in person. I will try to bring a real camera next time a take a better picture haha
So I was able to stop by and take some pictures of the hatchets and get some more information on them. Sorry once again for the not great photo, it was really hard to capture the sense of scale in the tank because everything in it was huge. For context, the silver dollars were just right around...
I was at my LFS the other day and saw some super cool "giant hatchet fish" as someone who has kept regular size hatchet fish and loved them, these larger versions certainly piqued my curiosity.
However, when I started researching them to see if they might make a good fit for my new tank, I...
Hello, Fellow Fish Keepers!
I have been keeping a 60-gallon tank for about 3-4 years now, and used to be quite an active member of the aquarium hobby. I had a fantastic community planted tank that had many different varieties of fish in it over the years. However, unfortunately, my life got too...
Hello! Yes, usually fish can go for about a week without food. Them starving shouldn't be an issue. With water changes, I would do a big one before you leave, and one when you get back, since you won't be feeding them there will be much less ammonia produce. Sorry can't help you with the ich...
I currently have Eco-complete in my main tank, I have both corys and Kuhli loaches and they are doing great. Kinda think of Eco-complete at a fine gravel substrate, they can move it pretty easily, but they don't stir it up.
Use my post at your own risk
Hey, no ned to get defensive.... We just trying to be helpful. Would you consider rehoming the ad's if you want the oscars together, 60 ppm of nitrate is high. Also, may i ask
What filter do you have?
What do you feed them?

Ok, thank you! I check my water basically every day. I am only feeding extra well she is pregnant. I actually now will be feeding her less and doing water changes every few days, , just got a batch of swordtail fry.
nope, 5 (its actually closer to 2) PPMs its too high. A. The guppy is a female, she is expecting close to 100 fry. Also i am purposely over feeding ti feed my plants AND dosing some trace element. the reason for over feeding, is because the plants have faster growth when consuming ammonium. This...
(First off, this post isn't bout me being lazy and not wanting to do water changes, i would do them every day) Couldn't though, ether go extend amounts of time between changes, or dose minerals, like replenish, then do water changes Very rarely?
Well, I'm in the middle of walsted book, the poop is provide ferts for the plants, and its kinda circle of life"ing". Thank you for the desires input, i might try not doing 1 for a week, and see how she is, then maybe do a water change, and gradually extend it to no water changes? also, i think...
Hello! So, i had a question. Currently, my 10 gallon only has 1 guppy currently. It is fairly heavily planted, but, it also has 6 thriving bamboo in back... So far, i haven't seen my nitrates ever go over 5 (honestly, i don't think there are any, but its hard to tell. I WAY over feed this tank...
Hmm, try "Placing" them on the water, basically sprinkle them, instead of dropping them in, then NLS floats for me for a bit, also i crush mine up, so the size ranges for .1mm to 1 mm, some floats, some sinks etc.
Hmm... i don't know how to test it, maybe call the water place. Also, I'm reading walstads book and had in idea. Are you topping off or water changing? if just topping off copper could be building up, i haven't had an shrimp death... most likely have similar water.
hmm...... parameters still good? I just found out in my tank, my fish might have been dyeing because of my water being low in gh, do you know your waters? Any thing else change, if if small? Any new chemicals? Sorry for your loss
thank you! so what will i want my final gh to be at? 150-180? or add that much? Thank you '
edit.. So i think ill want to add about 20 ml a day till i reach the 180? also can i just add it straight to the water?
You could also put it in a something like a bucket of water for a week. If measure the water after and its unchanged you should be ok... You could also put something like a pond snail in there. If it perishes there could be metals in the water?
I only have drift wood, and lace rock. I feed them new life spectrum. I do weekly water changes, changing 10 gallons of water a week. Nope, i don't think the heater is the problem... the fish have been having this happen basically wince the aquarium was set-up.
(woke up to find my favorite...
Haha, it is actually something I use to test our pool. You logic makes a lot of sense. My current plan is to but the api gh and kh kit and also get some of the reshfresh stuff to replenish the minerals... Sound like a plan?
Edit: seachem replenish
I might just be miss reading, but how would you use the tire to make the pond? Also, if you are doing filterless for just one goldfish, it would have to be big. Both for the goldfishes bio-capticy, and so there is less temp. fluctuation. Just my 2 cents
So i test my water, but not for gh. It test for total hardness, which isn't the equate same, but now i know there is hardness in the water. I do not see any signs of parasites. My water is hard because of where i live.
