    German blue ram sex

    I was hoping someone could help me sex these two rams. Sold to me as male and female from lfs. Seem young to me, the one with a solid black dot was said to be the male. But he also has a very big pink belly. Does the pink belly show in juveniles? Both almost an inch long.

    Brackish tank to Oscar tank

    Its a 60 gallon, my plan was to house a few F8 puffers together but I'm having second thoughts. Plus my lfs has the craziest looking oscar I've ever seen for sale. The plan is to have it back to full freshwater within a week, it will not be staying brackish if I do go with an Oscar. My main...

    F8 Puffer Meds

    Very good to know about the salt, makes sense they were treating with melafix at the store as they were still in freshwater. I will start deworming as a preventative as I always do even though he shows no signs now. Just was not to sure about the General Cure, as for soaking the food. Do you...

    F8 Puffer unhappy

    Yesterday I decided to bring home an F8 puffer from my lfs. Little after getting him in his tank he began surfing the glass, would stop to eat but goes right back at it. He is in full freshwater as that is what I was told he was in when sold to me. I will post water parameters below but could...
