    Siamese Algae Eaters Questions

    I've gone down a bit of a rabbit hole when it comes to Siamese Algae Eaters. Basically, I found out that there are multiple very similar species that are sold as Siamese Algae Eaters, which frankly explains many things. But information on these species is extremely lacking, and the information I...

    (Vent) Even in the fishkeeping hobby I'm not safe.

    To keep things vague, I'm part of a group of people who are often treated poorly by others, who are seen as the punchline of a joke, and who are sometimes hurt or killed just for existing. I'm sure some people might guess what I mean just based on that description, though it sadly can apply to...

    Magical Appearing Guppy/endler!

    Some backstory first. About a week ago, I rehomed all of my Guppy Endler mixed fish (who I call Guplers) who were in my 29 Gallon aquarium, as they were overbreeding like crazy. Or at least, I thought I did. First I found a fry, which wasn’t too surprising. But then last night when doing a...

    Cory Raising Journal

    To begin, I’ve owned Cories for many years. I’ve raised fry in the past, but I’ve only ever had one live to adulthood. (Who is actually the father of some of these babies!) I currently have 4 Bronze Cories and 4 Peppered Cories, with three females and one male in each group. I was planning on...
