    Stress? Or not?

    I just read the other post on the issues. I think macz helped. Unfortunately we can plan spaces for out fish and maybe if your lucky it pans out right. My 2 female apistogramma have 2 spots and they both prefer under driftwood that is right next to eachother. Their pots are split apart. Owell...

    First brine shrimp try!

    I rushed and got some san Francisco bay shrimp from lfs. Coralbandit says he likes brine shrimp direct. I'll order from them when I use these up. Made my own hatchery from a 1L bottle. 2 airline connectors and 2 control valve. Need a better light. Will be trying again in a couple of days

    How the heck do I get these brine shrimp out??

    Just dump them in the tank. I just hatched my first batch and I added water and shrimp to the tank.

    I fixed it. I was going to buy a 2nd heater to get to 86° but never went and got it. I have the tank at 84-85° so life cycle should speed up and I'm treating with kordon rid ich plus. I havent seen any spots make it to the body of a fish just the fins. Regardless I'll keep up on 25-30% water...

    First brine shrimp try!

    So I hatched my first brine shrimp eggs tonight. It was a decent success. The water got a little colder than I had hoped. But I got a large amount of live shrimp. The betta and glo tetra are the least excited. Cardinals are going to eat until they pop. Cichlid are going nuts. So a success...

    Where do you get your fish?

    Oh definitely not. They carry what they carry. I'd have better luck with lfs. But they have like 15 empty tanks full of algea. Fish in tanks with algea that's growing on the sponge filter gravel nasty. I am pretty much only ordering fish online if the store 45 mins away isnt nice. But until I...

    Where do you get your fish?

    I only buy from petco around me. Petsmart isnt too bad. My lfs is horrible I tried and now have ich and lost 11 fish in 24 hrs. There's supposed to be a nice one about 45 mins from me havent ventured yet. But online is where I got my apistogramma. From aquabid and they are healthy.

    Confusion about pH test results

    Like cantchoose one said you are maxed on low so it wont read past 7.6. So you can always check with high range.

    Ok hikira first food and turkey basted it down to the fry hopefully they ate some. Now for waterchange and I guess starting meds. I was so hopeful that heat would be enough but better safe than sorry

    Omg i have fry!!

    And the lfs is where all the problems came from. All the cardinals have ich or columnaris. So def no fish from there ever again. But only place I knew had brine shrimp eggs

    Omg i have fry!!

    Kordon rid ich plus is all they have. And san Francisco brine shrimp. Now to make a hatchery and use current air tubing. Maybe super glue lines in for now until I can build a better one.

    Omg i have fry!!

    Also my corner filter disturbs across the tank so oxygen isnt a worry

    Omg i have fry!!

    Now I know overall tank health is more important than fry. Will meds kill fry? I would rather a chance for another spawn than save these 5 fry but just wondering how this will affect the tank

    Omg i have fry!!

    I'm hoping the lfs has ichx I know petco and petsmart probably dont. I'm going to get meds if they have the right ones and probably horrible hatch rate brine shrimp eggs. Ordering from brineshrimpdirect.com when I get back. I thought all eggs were gone so I didnt order any. Then gotta make a...
