    Fish Identification! 8D

    That's exactly what I'd seen--and I imagine that's the fish. Nice find, lilFishyfish!

    Any Dostoevsky fans?

    I've read everything of his that Pevear and Volokhonsky have translated other than The Adolescent. Haven't had the time to start it. If you like his works, read Notes from Underground. Good look at his ideas and personality. I really have to recommend the Pevear and Volokhonsky...

    Fish Identification! 8D

    Darters are goby-like. If there's the possibility of it being native, it could potentially be a shiner, but shiners do not stay that small in most cases and don't tend to have that type of finnage. I have seen this kind of fish before, but the name was not known. I'll keep looking into it.

    What are the physical characteristics of a Flower Horn?

    It's a Texas Cichlid. EDIT: To specify, it's of the "Green Texas Cichlid" variety.

    Solution for Killer

    I may not be able to get those Yellow Labs for you for a week or two. Tomorrow we get a small fish order in. I'll see if I can get them then.

    Why do I even walk into Petsmart?!?

    Wouldn't happen to be... Purr-fect Pets? How are the cardinals? Read your post in the Discus thread and saw the "redeye" and the eruption in the fish tank profile thingy... I think you're the only person I've met that calls them just "redeyes". Kind of odd stumbling upon one of your posts here.

    Please/Hints to help baby discus grow.....?

    If possible, removing them to a separate tank is a good but usually unlikely option. Then you can power feed them without worrying about the other fish getting bloat or eating it all first. Small feedings throughout the day (think of them as very young children) should help, and if you find what...

    My 125 w/ Discus

    I ended up getting a 60 hex set up to raise the fry in, and pulled a pair out with the last 20 fry from their latest spawn.

    New Dwarf Cichlids.. plz help ID?

    It is definitely a Borelli. As I said, it is one of the few Apistos that are farmed and they are fairly unique among Apistos.

    RE:Discus Fish Care

    Keeping in mind that your tank is under 30 gallons... you do not have anywhere near enough room for Discus and Angelfish together, let alone Clown Loaches. Each fish gets over 6" in length, Discus and Angels getting very tall, and some clown loaches topping off at 13". Now... ignoring that...

    New Dwarf Cichlids.. plz help ID?

    That's an Apistogramma Borelli, like Tom said. It's one of the few apistos that are raised on farms for wholesale.

    I need help with this one

    Definitely a livebearer/killifish of some kind. Did you figure out if it's a mosquitofish or not? There are LOADS of fish it might be, in any case... it's almost certainly female, but it doesn't seem to have the gravid spot which most/all livebearers have. How big was it? I'm thinking it's a...

    My 125 w/ Discus

    6. Two wild blues, two blue snakeskins, one tan snakeskin (not sure of the 'official' name), and one cobalt. The wild blues and the snakeskins have paired up (Wild x Snakeskin) and both pairs lay eggs bi-weekly. A 125 liter would be good for spawning and growing out the fry to 3/4" but...

    My 125 w/ Discus

    Underneath the sand I mixed up some of the red plant gravel (forgot which brand) and quartz silica. The silicia is just real fine grade gravel and it blends nicely with the sand, and in a lot of the tank it's been moved around enough to be spots of just sand, and spots with a lot of gravel...

    Discus -oh yeah!

    FYI--unless you're buying Heckels or some wilds, most breeders and suppliers keep their Discus in water with neutral pH and whatever kH/gH.
