I know not all posts count, which is fine, but I have over 60 posts in my content list and I'm starting to worry that perhaps I might have inadvertently broken a rule. I very carefully re-read...

    Blonde Guppy Genetics - Tit For Tat?

    Okay, guys, I need some "edjumacating!" My question has to do with the genetic quality of blonde guppies, in particular those known as "super blonde" or "super red" by some. I'm hoping BillCNC can weigh in on this, because he's working on a similar guppy project. Here's the story: So I had...

    Lymnaea Stagnalis (great Pond Snails)

    Does anyone have experience keeping and raising Lymnaea snails? I recently acquired some for free at a local aquarium supplier thinking they were an albino version of bladder snail.
