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 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...
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...
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?
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...
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...
That's what is was originally supposed to be actually, it just got taken way out of hand.
@Magicpenny75 how about the first person to eat squid or octopus? Look, a weird tentacle monster, I wonder how that tastes.
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.
I'm pretty sure they're all the same car with different badges
"Both the FR-S and BRZ offer the same exact engine: a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that makes 200 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. In both cars, a 6-speed manual transmission is standard, while a 6-speed automatic is optional. ...
How much of a disadvantage is it? If for some reason I felt the need to splurge on a new canister I'd rather save the money on one of these unless there's a critical flaw you see. @Cichlidude and @Islandvic ?
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.
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.
