I've been trying to figure out what to do with my 36 gallon bowfront, the goal is a heavily planted, low tech tank with a good hardscape (I'm exceptionally bad at aquascaping so any advice is much appreciated haha)
Currently it's got salvinia minima, java fern, anubias and a tall...
I've been looking into a drawing tablets for a couple months now. At first, I went for no screens since it was cheaper, but I had some extra money from my last paycheck, so I thought I might be able to upgrade. I was looking at the huion insparoy Q11k v2 tablet, and I want to get...
I just finished a lot of work on my tanks and I'm really enjoying the hobby right now!!
So I thought we should just sit back and enjoy the fish we spend hours taking care of.
What's one thing you really like about fishkeeping? And maybe a picture of your favorite fish or tank! I'll go...
So I'm upgrading my tanks and getting a UV light and plants for my 40 gallon, as well as some floater plants.
I plan on selling trimmings if I can, so any tips? I know the basics but you veterans probably know all the details. ;)
What do you like to ship them in and how? What...
I've been working on a water changimg system, and I was wondering which hoses are aquarium safe. The one I found on sale at the hardware store today is lead free, bit it doesn't say it's drinking safe that I can see.
What I'm most concerned about is phosphate. It doesn't say not to...
Over the summer I'm going to get some fancy goldfish for my 40 gallon, I'll probably get them from king koi and goldfish, (free shipping woohoo!)
So I have some fish in there right now, but when I get the Goldfish, there will only be 2 small bristlenose plecos and maybe my platy, Rosie...
When I rescued my 40 gallon 2 years ago, there were a ton of different kinds of fish, and now I'm trying to find a good home for the remaining fish, since I want to have fancy goldfish in there instead.
3 glowlight tetras
1 neon tetra
And 1 glass catfish.
I don't know...
I've been trying to find a good digital art tablet for myself, I've never done digital art, but I draw traditionally. I want to invest in something high quality, but not super expensive. Somewhere between $80-$300ish. If there's a good one that has a screen, I'd love that. But I'm...
I just got this plant and noticed that there are black spots on the bottom of the leaves. I think it was there when I bought it. Do you think it's spider mites or something else?
And how do I treat it?
My oranda, tomogatchi has been laying on the bottom of his tank, sideways all day. It could be swim bladder, but he looks too lethargic and like he's dying.
He just got over dropsy and ammonia burns, I've been so worried since he's my favorite fish.
My goldfish, tomogatchi has had dropsy and bleeding on his fins and body for about a week, but this morning, his swelling was gone! He's covered in black scars, which I assume is good because he's not bleeding anymore and it's healing over.
I was doing epsom salt dips 3 times a day...
My goldfish has been in a 20 gallon quarantine tank for 2 months now, I've been treating ripped fins and fin rot with aquarium salt for that whole time, luckily he's been healing really well.
A couple days ago though, I noticed that his sides were bloated and he was pine coning. I...
"why are you putting your fish in a salt bath, just roll it around In salt a couple times and put it back in the tank"
"dropsy is water in his organs? Just put him in a bag of rice. Why are you freaking out so much"
This morning I noticed some really concerning symptoms in my goldfish, tomogatchi. I'm just going to fill out the emergency template so here goes:
What is the water volume of the tank?
How long has the tank been running?
A couple of months
Does it have a filter?
I have a 5 gallon betta tank with a couple different kinds of plants, java fern, a type of rotala, and some lilaeopsis brasiliensis.
I have a LED strip in the tank but it's not enough for the plants. I've tried the small tank plant lights at my local petco but they're WAY to bright...
I've been thinking about breeding fish, and I think bettas would be my favorite fish to try.
I don't think I'll do this anytime soon, at least not until I can find some room for more fishtanks haha
What would I need to start?
I have a 5 gallon and a 2 1/2 gallon, a couple baby...
I'm cycling my 2 1/2 gallon and was wondering if it's big enough for one (or are they better with more??)
I also have a 5gal betta tank, but are bettas and African dwarf frog compatible??
Anyway, I just wanted to know if this was even possible..
I'm at a ski resort right now, in front of a warm fire after six hours of snowboarding. Let's just say I'm not moving tomorrow haha I've been out snowboarding 6 or 7 times, and I finally got it down. Aggh it's so fun.
Anyone else know the feeling?
