    Convict Cichlids acting inactive

    Just got 4 convict cichlids earlier in the week. First couple days they were active and shoaling together. Last couple days they have been inactive and hiding in the log and on the sand behind plants. All the water parameters are still fine as well as the temperature. They don't seem to be sick...

    New species in tank??

    I have just noticed quite a few tiny little white specs about the size of a single grain of salt. I have no idea what they are and too small too make out a definite shape.

    Approximate cost of starting marine tank??

    I have long been a keeper of freshwater fish, but have been leaning towards saltwater though I'm sure will be too pricey for me at the moment. I have a tall 29 or 30 gallon tank can't remember which it is, but either way about how much do you all think turning this into a saltwater tank would...

    Golden Dojo Loach laid eggs, possible to get babies out of it?

    Yesterday 2 of my golden loaches were mating all day long and about every 30 minutes or so she laid eggs. A lot of which were eaten up by my two angelfish before ever hitting bottom. Their in a 75 gallon tank, and I have sand substrate so it's hard to tell the sand from the eggs, if their are...

    Last time I wrote a long time ago was about breeding platy's and that worked out little too well, with in total having over 400 in last 3 months, most of which have been sold to locals. My guppy pair have also reproduced and I currently have all 24 of them still. I now have been interested in...
