    Back At It- Fin's Fluval Spec

    It's been a minute! I took a break from FL for a while, I kept losing my fish and I lost interest when I got my horse. The final straw was when my goldfish mysteriously died, and I just stopped caring what my tanks looked like and really put my fish on the back-burner. Recently I really started...

    Hurricane Irma, Anyone?

    Is anyone else going to be affected? We're evacuating tomorrow, taking all our pets. We bought a horse trailer tonight, I bought sterilite tubs for the fish once we get to the destination, and we booked a stall for our horse up at the TN GA line. I have a battery powered air pump with extra...

    100g Found On The Side Of The Road

    If you follow my general "Tanks and fish" thread, you know I found a 100G on the side of the road yesterday. At first glance I thought or was a 55, then in the car I thought it was a 75. When I got home and finally measured it it turned out to be 100 gallons! It looks like it was used as a...

    Keeping Horse From Scratching Wound

    As many of you know, I'm getting back into breeding. I'm getting increasingly closer to breeding and figured that nows as good a time as ever to start this.

    What Is The Ideal Setup For Fundulopanchax Gardneri

    I recently freed up a 5 gallon tank, and am interested in getting a pair of Fundulopanchax gardneri. I have a high PH of 8.4-8.8. Is this too high for them? I know that most fish can adapt to high PH but haven't done much research on these guys. Is a 5 gallon big enough? What do they eat? Do...

    Something Wrong With My Water

    I'm think I'm connecting some dots regarding fish deaths, I've noticed that my bettas(they're really the only fish I keep) seem to die after 3-6 months due to varying illness, could it be something with my water? I have eliminated food, source of fish, decorations, and all my tanks are/were...

    Paint Fumes And Fish?

    Hey guys! I'm finally getting to paint my room, but I'm concerned about how the fumes will affect my bettas, since they are labyrinth fish. I plan on moving all my furniture(Including fish tanks) towards the center of my room so I don't get paint on them. Would the fish be alright if I covered...

    What to do with fish during hurricane?

    Hey guys, There is a large chance hurricane Matthew will be hitting me. It hasn't been decided if we are evacuating or not, and I want to have some sort of evacuation plan for the fish. I do not want to leave them there, some are pretty expensive and it would be a huge blow to lose them...

    What's inside of thermometers?

    I accidentally smashed the end if my thermometer with my sponge filter, so now the red stuff has leached into it. It smells sort of like gasoline/diesel fuel. Is it harmful to my fish if I rinse it off? Thanks for any help guys
