    I Have Made A Mistake...again.

    Oh whoops! My bad! As far as the slime coat issue, I would treat them like any other sucker mouthed fish like plecos or otto cats; see how it goes, and then pull them out as soon as you see a problem, then leave them to the turtle.

    I Have Made A Mistake...again.

    I think the 55g would be your best bet, it's not really as heavily stocked as you think either. I have sae with an angel in one of my tanks, and also with loaches and shrimp, that's not a guarantee you'd be fine of course but I would say pretty confidently that there shouldn't be an issue in...

    Cae Compatability

    I personally don't think it's a great idea to keep any fish with turtles. I've seen RES latch onto even 12" common plecos before.

    Rcs Coming To Petsmart

    I'm pretty sure only the ghost shrimp are that cheap? My petco has red, yellow, and blue for $4, but when they get other ones price depends on the strain.

    I thought I was sure, but upon closer inspection I can see that they're just really banged up. Do they also tuck the fans when they get scared? I did have to chase him out of the filter...

    Help Bamboo Shrimp Lost Its Fans

    So I cleaned out my filter today and ended up finding the bamboo shrimp I thought had died, it looked perfectly fine at first but then I realized that somewhere along the way his fans broke off. I would assume he'll be ok if he managed to survive inside the filter without them, but any food...

    Funny Which Spouse Or So Is Harder To Convince?

    Alright, I see a lot of "the wife wasn't thrilled" and "hubby isn't convinced" so I figured; why not have a little fun and see if we can figure who's more difficult to get permission from. Maybe to make it more fair/full of funny stories I'll add parents into the mix too? Let's see!

    25 Watt Heater Managing To Overheat

    Aqueon has a lifetime warranty, essentially no questions asked other than what the issue is. They could be more accurate but they're not bad heaters at all.

    Frozen Food Slightly Thawed.

    I've also left things out for a little while before remembering, bloodworms and brine shrimp. I think it'd be fine. Like @Feohw said, they're sealed and not totally thawed.

    Those bloodworms freeze like bricks IME, I would say at least those should be ok.

    Terrible Stroke Of Bad Luck

    Well I'd dare say everything is going alright so far, no fish have died and I managed to "save" two goldfish from a carnival that are now doing well also. Everyone looks and acts healthy, and the tanks are clean so I can't ask for a ton more can I? Things are also smoothing out with my ex...

    Discus Gang Updates

    I've been thinking about getting a tank that's just a little bit bigger for the discus, but only one that can still fit on the same stand so I'm not sure whether I should favor dimensions or volume. Length would be the same, but the tank would be wider instead of taller, it's only a difference...

    Well, yes it would be. Just think of it like a timeout though, while they may not understand the concept of being "punished", the discus in question will more likely than not straighten up.

    Help Constant Ammonia?!

    Is it possible the test kit is bad? There's almost no way to get that much ammonia in so little time, especially not after a 90-100% using water with 0 ammonia. I would take some tap water and some tank water to be tested at the lfs and see if your readings match.

    Weird Clicking/chiming Sound In Tank

    Could it just be a creaky plastic lid? I have one that's a really tight fit on one of my tanks and it occasionally makes a clicking/popping noise since it's really jammed on there. It especially happens after I put the lid back on after a water change since that's when it's the tightest.

    Tank Has Been Running For Years But I Don't Think I Am Doing It Right..

    They live for around a year, but are also already a couple months old when you get them from the store. I didn't catch where you were told to do that, but usually we mean swish it around in bucket of tank water, not in the tank itself.
