    Can you list some of the mom & pops? I’m looking for a good place to order from. No LFS here, only Petco etc.

    Is my ADF okay?

    The tank is 3.5 gallons, I did a big water change last week and a small one (like 10 - 20%) this past week. The tank is cycled, it's had a few plants and a nerite snail for months. One thing is that the water here is very hard and very alkaline, I admit I haven't tested the water for ages, I...

    Is my ADF okay?

    I got an ADF and 3 guppies at the LFS on Thursday night, acclimated them according to the instructions and let them out of the bags yesterday. The guppies are doing really well but the frog was not very active in the bag or when I let him out and now he is just lying on the bottom. I wondered...

    Me either. Does it have another name? I couldn't find it on Google image search.

    Which killifish would you like to have

    I am still desperately seeking some female Aphanius mento (Persian killifish). If you raise some, I will drive to Kentucky to pick them up. They are seriously cool fish and live in hard water. They even tolerate cold water in the winter (not that they get it, in my aquarium). The males turn...

    Help with snail eggs

    Thank you, too. I wonder if shrimp could live with my shell dwellers. Just thinking, I got the nerites to get rid of the algae, now I have to do something to get rid of the nerite (eggs). Will I have to find something else to get rid of shrimp, overrunning the tank? There’s some kind of...

    Help with snail eggs

    I’m waiting for the answers because I’m having the same problem. Also do they pollute the water when they don’t hatch? They must degrade eventually.

    What kind of eggs are these?

    Yes, several. Two have barnacles growing on them. I didn’t think that they would lay eggs in fresh water, if the eggs don’t hatch, will they pollute the water? Is there any chance of them hatching?

    What kind of eggs are these?

    Some tiny white things have appeared on the back wall of the tank. There aren’t very many and there aren’t any on the rocks, plants or heater. I reached in and they’re stuck on pretty well. These photos aren’t good as they aren’t easy to get to, in the back, but this is the best of a bad lot...

    Shell dweller tankmate questions

    I was also wondering about julies - maybe they could live at the rocky end of the tank. Except one of the 2 male shellies has moved over by himself (I gave him some shells). All of the babies and baby mamas belong to the smaller of the 2 males. The Aphanius are beautiful and live at the top...

    Shell dweller tankmate questions

    I have to look up fairy cichlids, I don't know what they are. I did have danios at one time but gave them away, I guess I will have to give some of the shellies away too, how many is too many for a 29? I got similis because I was told that they wouldn't breed as much as multis - I can't...

    Anyone Here Like To Cook/bake?

    I always make my late mother's recipe but this year I used a packaged crust from the store for the very first time. My mother would be horrified if she knew. I believe some people used tinned evaporated milk instead of cream. Sorry to butt in here but I love baking and couldn't resist.

    Shell dweller tankmate questions

    Thanks. I have one end planted but the shellies are reproducing at such a great rate that they will probably end up at that end too. The 6 juvenile shellies grew up to be 2 males and 4 females and there are lots of babies of all sizes. Floating plants, maybe, to fill that empty space up top?

    What is wrong with this Nerite Snail?

    Does that mean that the nerites will die, too?

    Shell dweller tankmate questions

    Mine is a standard 29 gallon, and the shellies never go above the bottom third. Is there anything? I have 2 Aphanius mento males in there now; I’ve been searching for some females but haven’t found any.

    What is wrong with this Nerite Snail?

    I bought a few at a LFS, left them in clean water overnight before putting them into the tank, and I didn’t notice anything on them at the time. I think there might be another one with a barnacle, too. I had no idea that there were males, females and eggs and I can’t even imagine how they...

    What is wrong with this Nerite Snail?

    Is there any problem with letting it stay there as a tank decoration?

    Shell dweller tankmate questions

    Are there any small Tanganyikan fish that can live above shellies, in the upper levels?
