    Will yellow and orange poso snails hybridize?

    Hey, long time no see! Had a question I'm struggling to find an answer to. I've had a rad yellow poso rabbit snail for three years now, and a buddy just picked me up two more! Except... they're orange posos... lol (not that they're not welcome!). Was hoping to breed em, course, it's still...

    60 Gallon Tank How fast do I need to get my goldfish a buddy

    My 7yo goldy passed away today due to dropsy. Third time she had it, can't believe she survived the first two, but this time just hit her too fast. She was a common, but had bonded very strongly to my fantail. My fantail, Artemis, always followed her everywhere, wanted to eat what she was...

    Is my fantail a tosakin?

    I've had her for 2 or 3 years and literally just noticed she doesn't have two tails, just one fused one.

    Bedbug treatment and aquariums

    Yeah Looks like we have bedbugs. Unless there's another bug that bites in a line at night. Ugh No idea how bad it is, what's going to happen, etc, look like chemical methods are the only way to go. Problem is: my fish. I've got lots. In a bedroom (guest bedroom, but with everything going on...

    Pricing help for longfin plecos and betta imbellis

    Haven't been here in a while, can't remember where I'm supposed to post this... Hey all, it's springtime, fish are spawning, and it's time to start selling some of these babies. But I'm awful at pricing, and unfortunately slammed with work right now, so a range would be awesome. For my bn...

    Funny Moss...

    So I've been here and back and all around due to work/school this year, and it's been interesting seeing how my tanks grow every 2-3 weeks, rather than days. Though recently, I swear I can see my Java mods growing right before my eyes... It was pretty normal Java mods until ~2 months ago, and...

    20 Gallon Tank Clearing out 20 long

    Hey all! Long time no see! I'm going around my fish room and clearing out various stuff, mostly from tanks that once had illnesses I couldn't deal with. Had my betta imbellis in the 20 long, and I'm sorry to say for anyone who followed along with that, they all passed (I do have some new...

    How long can I leave them?

    Ayayay, I'm back again for a bit! With questions! I set up a little 3 gallon shrimp tank with 3 ghost shrimp a few months back, and it's been going well. Thing is, I'm going out of town for the holiday, nearly a month (little over three weeks) and I want to know if I can leave them where they...

    Sick Goldfish - Need Help Asap

    Update to this thread: My Goldfish Is Sick... Again (also Long Time No See!) everything is much worse now. My Lionhead died yesterday, she had been bottom sitting more than normal, lost an eye 3 weeks ago, got the weird tail damage within the past week. I assume the eye damage was something...

    Automatic Feeder For Fry Food

    I don't have an automatic feeder and I'm looking at the Eheim one (however you spell it) but I need to know if it can dose just a tiny pinch of tiny powdered fry food. It's just a 10 gallon, I only have like 50-70ish bettas from 2 months to 0 days (lol eggs), and they don't actually eat that...

    Will This Kill Them?

    I've gotta make a quick decision, I need to know if this will kill them or not. TLDR: can I move 3 day old baby bettas from one tank to another? Long: I put 2 male and 2 female imbellis in a small 10 gallon. This was an attempt to make them not breed. Well, they did, several times. Till now, the...

    Community Betta Spawning?

    I am confused, lol. Anyone had similar experiences? So I know imbellis already exhibits a lot of spawning behavior that splendens doesn't, eg, if you leave the female with the male and give enough space, she will build her own bubble nest and steal some of the eggs to take care of, lol. The male...

    Funny Budgeting In Schools

    So a long, long time ago (today at 1) I visited my sister in her highschool, my old highschool, for lunch. They've made a lot of improvements, my graduating class was over 1000 kids, overall there were 4000 something (we were supposed to have 2000 max) and now they only have 2600 and have added...

    Slight Issue.... Betta Imbellis Spawn

    Y'all always have good ideas, so let's go! Sooooo, betta imbellis, am I right? Got 5, separated into two tanks for QT, one has 2 males 1 female, the other one female one male. I wanted the 1m 1f to spawn, not the others, hence the 2 males. 3 days after I got them, the pair spawned, next day the...

    How Often Can Fish Spawn?

    Well, I got some imbellis, separated out one male and one female, they spawned 3 days later, eggs eaten the next day, spawned again (that was fast! And more eggs than the first time), then reverse Easter and the eggs were one again. However, they're looking like they will spawn again. I was...

    Need Some Help With Wheelchair

    Hey guys! My poor Bubba Whale (short for Bubble Whale) is a Yuan Bao Oranda who developed SBD pretty badly after shipping, likely sustained damage during the shipping process. Since he's a pretty heavily fancied fancy, there's probably not much I can do. When I first got him, I did all the...

    Reverse Easter

    I've already seen at least one person get Easter babies, which is awesome! However, mine was a bit different... My bettas ate their eggs. Again. Lol, I'm gonna switch out the male, little stinker

    Okay Substrate For Plants

    Sorry for the 40000 questions I asked today, trying to get everything together. I need to redo the substrate on my betta imbellis tank, may eventually make it high tech, but not for a year or so. I need a substrate that will work for a water lily, Amazon sword, vals, banana plant, etc etc root...
