    What kind of snail is this?

    It’s at least twice the size of any pond snail I’ve ever seen.

    Did anyone go to the Carolina Aquatic Expo on April 3?

    It was really nice to have a local show happen. I wasn't needing any new fish, but I wanted some plants and inverts. I ended up with a bunch of various plants, a bag of a couple dozen blue velvet shrimp for $40 and 5 Mexican dwarf crayfish. Here's the one, bold crayfish who did not instantly...

    Ideas for community fish ideas for a 36 bowfront

    A few months ago I had a slight die-off in my 36BF. Now that I'm sure the parameters and everything are fine I'm looking to restock. I like to have something that isn't too common. The community fish that were previously in there were purple harlequin rasboras. I have pseudomugils and...

    Teachers betta had food dumped in tank

    I got a frantic phone call this morning from a teacher who has a betta in a 10 gallon tank in her classroom. Someone had emptied a few hundred pellets into the tank at some point between the end of school yesterday and this morning. Judging by the amount of pellets that were on the bottom of...

    Can Amano shrimp peacefully coexist with other cardina species?

    I've heard they can be real jerks.

    Are my fish eggs still good?

    I just started putting a spawning mop in my pseudomugil gertrudae tank. Every morning I pick out the eggs and place them in a mesh breeder in a separate tank that has a heater, an air stone under the mesh breeder and methylene blue to keep them from fungussing. The eggs are clear when I put...

    Has anyone used this baby brine shrimp hatchery?

    Put the salt and eggs in the black box and fill it with water all the way to the opening on the box. Put fresh water in the clear cup, place the rubber lid on it (not shown but has a small hole in the middle). When the BBS hatch they are attracted to the light coming through the lid of the box...

    Can pseudomugil luminatus eat apisto cacatuoides fry?

    My apistos spawned, and they share a tank with some pseudomugil luminatus. I was wondering if the fry would be just big enough for the luminatus to not predate on them. I would pull the fry out and put them in a separate tank, but I'll be gone for five days so won't be able to feed them...

    My cacatuoides pair finally spawned!

    The first species I have tried spawning have finally done it! I was doing a water change on my 75 gallon tank and just started filling it back up (using a Python) and decided to check out some other tanks while that was going. Once I noticed the fry I had to grab my phone, video it and post it...

    Choose your “disaster”

    I'm just curious what everyone would rather want to deal with. There are stipulations though...say the algae isn't the type you can easily wipe off of the glass like BBA, you don't have puffers, loaches or anything else that eats snails, and you don't have goldfish or anything else that eats...

    Well, wish me luck

    I just spent the last 3+ hours scooping out duckweed from my office 20 long. I took apart my HOB and removed anything I found. I took some wet paper towels and went along the underside of the rim and then used a small mirror to see if any was left. There were some pieces in the plants too...

    I added a few more plants to my office 40 breeder

    My Bolivian rams spawned again, and today the rock they were guarding was empty. I cannot find the wrigglers anyway, but the parents are guarding the back of the tank ferociously.

    How to tell if corydoras eggs are fertilized?

    I just witnessed one of my corydoras just laid a bunch of eggs, but I have no idea if they're fertilized. I never witnessed a male go anywhere near them. Right now they're a milky white.

    Is this Bolivian Ram spawning behavior?

    Two of my rams are moving gravel around clearing out a sandy ditch of sorts, chasing anything away and then pecking at a certain rock near the ditch.
