    Weird little puffer

    So, just yesterday I got a little figure 8 puffer. He is very tiny, a baby! Anyways he has a funny little habit already. When I give him bloodworms, he sucks it in and out of his mouth and squeezes out all of the insides, discarding the skin. How goofy is that?

    Feeding ferals in Winter

    Hey all! I’m sure there is a great feral cat forum out there and I’m all ears if someone has a suggestion, but I thought I’d come here first. I have my garage door lifted just enough to let kitties it for shelter, food and clean water this Winter. I’m a believer in encouraging them to do their...

    How to hatch a Mystery snail clutch

    What follows is my experience with hatching Mystery snail egg clutches. My way is not the only way, but I’ve found it works well for me. I’m making this care sheet so others will know what to do if they find one of those ugly pink grapes attached to their tank above the water line. 1) You want...

    Best source online?

    I will soon be purchasing 4 goldfish for my 60 gallon long. I’d like to get fantails (oranda, ryukin, etc...), and I’d like them to be of high quality. What are some of the best sources you’ve found for purchasing these beauties?

    Omg this snail is a spaz!

    So, my bladder snails constantly get irritated at the amphipods bouncing around in the tank. So much so that now they are spazing out at each other. It’s like two kids that don’t get along. Anytime one touches the other they have a complete meltdown. Witness one bladder snail throwing a...

    Puffer pals

    I am just about ready to add in puffers to my life again. I have a corner 60, and I want to know (for dynamics purposes) do you think a pair would be better or 3? As in, only get 2 because if there is 3 one of them will be ganged up on, or is it more like, get 3 because if you only have 2 then...

    Mediterranean Geckos

    They are an invasive species where I live. So, I figured there was no harm in snagging a few of the babies for pets. It got me thinking though, where to they go in the Winter? Do they hibernate? There are no bugs for them to eat so if they don’t hibernate wouldn’t they starve?

    Worm ID - I suspect planarian based on movement

    I suspect planarian based on movement, but I can’t get a magnified enough picture to tell head shape. What worm is this?

    Fish Tank Mates

    My snails come first, because they were here first. I really really want to pair them with a couple of goldfish in my 60 gallon. However, I need to know if goldfish would be expected to harass them? I would be devastated if whatever I put with them munches on their eye stalks and feelers.

    How Can I Get Bladder Snails To Multiply?

    You’re going to say it’s easy, that they do it naturally as long as water parameters are good and food is available. But I’m having a problem. I always have *some* bladder snails, it’s not like they are all dying off. But they are dying off at enough of a rate that the population is just kind...

    Gravity

    Is there any reason a canister filter needs to be below the water line? If I had the tank and canister both on the ground would the pump provide enough flow or would it need gravity’s assistance?

    Need An Awkward Stand

    Got a used 60 gallon corner tank. I don’t trust the stand it came with as it has obviously been wet in the past. I wanted to make a stand from cinder blocks but I can’t seem to configure it to support the tank on all edges because of the weird shape. Help! I want to get this set up ASAP so I...

    60 Gallon Needs Light!

    I am only finding up to 24 inch lights and most have brackets. That won’t work for my 5 foot long tank! Any recommendations?

    Pom Pom Missing Claws

    Can they still feed themselves when they don’t have either claw? I’m sure he’s quite defenseless now against the other crabs as well.

    How To Stop Fin Biting?

    I have 4 betta boys. 1 of them, just 1, I thought had fin rot inexplicably. But I’m noticing now that there are random chunks missing. I think he is biting his fins. How can I stop this behavior? He has a floating log, a live plant and a snail buddy. His filter is slow flow and he does not...
