Howdy all! I have a couple of Figure 8 Puffers I'd like to transition over to brackish water but am not sure exactly how to do that. Is there a Brackish Forum or somebody who knows how I need to do this? Thanks!
I found the brackish forum, Mods can you move this there? Please?
I got two little homeless puffers today, delivered to me in 4 inches of very dirty water in a 30 gallon hex tank, with nitrates at least 160 maybe higher. But it gets worse! They are accompanied by 3 glofish and a rainbow shark! Other parameters of the water they were in: pH 8.2, ammonia 0.25...
Another member of this forum is having dosing issues with Dr. Tim's ammonia. Might be on the alert and dose half what the instructions say, to start...probably mislabeled. Actually you might start with 1 drop per gallon in a bucket and test it before putting it in your tank.
I'm not new, had Corys 30 years ago and loved their funny little selves. I have a 30 gallon tank languishing in the garage. My municipal water has changed drastically over the last 10 years so i'm not sure I can do Corys now but would like to build a habitat for a herd of them if possible. My...
I saw a video recently (don't ask, I can't seem to find it again) of a guy (fish breeder) somewhere in Asia who stuck water and small plastic bottles, upside down, in his tank's and filled them with CO2, with a curved glass pipette attached via a rubber hose to pressurized CO2 canisters...
Well, it's the season and my grandson's dog can't seem to be able to smell snakes. He's terrified of them and tucks his tail a scoots behind the nearest human if he sees one 20 yards away! He's a 90lb foxhound mix so his inability to smell them is baffling. He can smell lizards. They've tested...
Why can't I find an "article" written by a fish expert describing, in detail, how to do a "fish-in" cycle? Even in the Beginners "Starting The Cycle - Cycling With And Without Fish" there is no explanation for how to do this.
Can someone who is an expert on the procedure, create an article we...

Mix together and I used syringe to squirt 1 teaspoon of mixture into each...

Here's "Nom" after the goldfish (looking very guilty in the background) got hold of his tentacles!
She has since moved "Nom" in with "MarkSuckerberg" (Suck, for short) the purple Mystery snail in the other 'friendly' goldfish tank.
I rec'd 10 mystery snails on Feb 2 and noticed they all had some shell problems, scaly areas, thin lip of shells, a couple with small tears across the lip of the shells and this little guy. He never fully emerged from his shell and couldn't seem to stay upright. I just thought he was a goner and...
This is Patches. She was a feral catch/spay/release cat who ended up in an adoption center at about 18 months. We inherited her from our elderly parents who couldn't take care of her properly. She ended up getting Valley Fever and had to have her eye removed but is now enjoying the life of a...

4 z rock
4 lemon jakes
1 decorous cat (I might go back and get the other one)
This is taken from the end of the...
