I’m trying my hand at breeding once again!
The parents are blue marble HMPK’s, imported from different sources. The female (Vega) was purchased in a mystery box with 4 other girls, and I found the male (Antares) a few weeks later on eBay. I’m expecting some dark bodied solids, some light...
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...
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...
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...
Hey guys, it's been a while!
Finally I have all my tanks in a somewhat presentable manner, so I figured an update was in order. I should probably update on my breeding project first, since I know a lot of you were excited about that.
Betta Breeding Project-
I do not currently have any pairs of...
I know this is a bit out there for a fish forum, but I was wondering if you guys had any ideas. There has to be at least one other horse person on here, right?
My family has a 13 stall barn that we board horses at, up until this, we've only ever done what we call partial board. Basically we...
I'm having algae problems in my sorority, any help would be appreciated
The tank is a 20 long with a finnex planted plus 24/7 that I keep on max whenever it's on. The tank is not on a timer, and it varies greatly when it's on. Usually, it's sometime between 3:30- 11:30, but depending on when I...
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.
I have two spawns planned, and will hopefully be spawning at the same time so I can share growouts between the fry.
Here are the pairs (I...
I just brought this cutie home, and not even 10 minutes after putting her into the tank I couldn't find her. After looking for a couple minutes I found her stuck inside a decoration and had to push her out, I thought she was fine at first but after watching her she's got a scrape on...
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?
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...
Hey all, I've had some mysterious disease killing my bettas and am getting some imports in the mail tomorrow. (You can read about them here if you'd like )
They will be going into QT in a 20 gallon long I have, and I need to disenfect the tank, and most likely some of the decorations. I'm just...
I'm considering jumping back into the breeding game, and want to know what you guys would want to see. It's not 100% decided yet, but I'd like to start looking for pairs ASAP so any input would be appreciated!
For tail type, I want to stick to either HM, HMPK, or a dumbo variety of either HM or...
My labs had babies! The only survivor from the first group is finally around an inch long, but now more babies have popped up, which is exciting but also slightly annoying haha.
I put off water changes for two weeks until baby was big enough not to get sucked up by the Python, the tank is...
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...
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...
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
Hey guys, I'm moving some tanks around and since my sorority is pretty much dead, I need to disenfect the plants in there. I don't have the money to buy new plants, so disenfecting them is my only option.
I'm not sure what the girls have/had, but it's either internal parasites or some other...
How could I say no to this face?
So, many of you know about Moo
(Just in case you haven't ...)
I ordered him on eBay(best $30 I ever spent). The seller offered me some live daphnia to start a culture with, but...
Hey guys, it's gotten to the point where I need your help.
I am down to 4 girls in my sorority(Flame, GG2, Oahu, and Asuna). Two are already showing signs, and the other two won't be far behind
