    HMPK Betta Spawns 2021

    New spawns in the making! I want to continue my blue marble line that I’ve had going since 2017. Working on the 5th generation now and outcrossing with unrelated females. The male is a bi-color marbled male with possible “dragon” qualities, he is about 1.5 year old, long in the tooth but still...

    Growing Aquarium Plants From Seed

    A few weeks ago I received some random seeds as a freebie from something on aquabid. Possible plants are listed as “anubias, buce, beautiful red stem plant, amazon swords”. I tossed them in a baby food jar with wet perlite and let them do their thing. I didn’t think they’d do well so I didn’t...

    Want To Sell Bulk Plants and Ramshorns

    Decided I needed to make a new thread to sell just my plants. I plan to sell jungle val and assorted crypts mainly in bulk amounts. Newest plant packages up for sale will be posted as new replies and not updated in the first reply. Also will be selling bulk ramshorns, over 100 count, puffer...

    Getting Into Guppies

    I decided to try my hand at guppies as I’ve avoided them for the longest time. Livebearers in general are not too appealing to me but I did find a couple fancy types I’ve taken to. I purchased only females, 2 of each for red dragon halfmoon and albino red koi. I prefer the looks of the females...

    Want To Sell Crypts and Rotala

    I thinned out a few tanks and pulled 50+ small crypts of 3 varieties along with ~10 rotala stems. Asking 30$ shipped (heat packed as needed). Cannot guarantee pest, snails, duckweed, or algae free. Algae would be the smallest possibility compared to other pests.

    Bristlenose Pleco Spawn Log

    I figured it was time to make a thread to help me keep track of my BN spawns. Right now there are 2 batches going. The two mothers are sisters from the same spawn I raised a while ago, this is their first batch. Caves are ceramic, ones I made a couple years ago in ceramics class. Green dragon...

    Veil Angel Progress

    Let me start by saying I’ve never had angels before but I did do some googling and I feel plenty capable to care for them. This will just be a thread to keep track of their progress. I impulse-bought a single little marble veil angel and I love it to death. Right now it’s about quarter sized...

    Neolamprologus Multifasciatus

    My shell dweller experience has been a bust the first time around. They bred, they grew, and then a disease wiped out all but 3 males of some 20 fish. I cannot readily find multis locally and the prices are insane online, plus I am not guarantied to get females and I'd rather not have more males...

    African Violets

    I’m going on a plant craze as of late and I will soon have 7 new types of African violets that I will be propagating from leaf. That means I’ll more than likely have say ~21+ young fancy African violets (more than I have space for!) Was wondering if anyone would like to have a couple in the...

    Want To Sell Bettas, BN Plecos, Rainbow fish etc

    I’ll be listing several of my young bettas here shortly but right now I’ve got an extra but beautiful male HMPK. He was one of 2 random picks sent to me from a breeder. I have no intension of breeding him but he does have great form. Not sure how old he is, under a year that’s all I can say...

    Can Snowball/Blue Pearl be with Cherry Shrimp?

    When looking at the cherry shrimp color charts it shows that snowball and blue pearls come from Neo. palmata and not Neo. davidii. Is it safe to assume that keeping red cherries with snowball or blue pearls will not produce brown shrimp down the line? I ask because I'm curious about adding...

    Want To Sell Bag of Crypt/Jungle Vals

    I thinned out more than I planned and after selling 2 bags of plants I just kept pulling! There are ~20 crypts (mainly wenditii bronze) and ~10 jungle vals. I'm asking 25$ shipped (free shipping) for the lot. All plants came from this tank. Cannot guarantee pest/algae free, will refund if DOA...

    How to Vent/Sex African Cichlids

    I see often enough people asking how to sex their African cichlids when appearances don’t always tell. Here is how I vent my African cichlids, this works for most mouth brooding species that are approaching reproductive size (~2-2.5in+). Grab the fish you want to check and hold them gently...

    Odd Green BN Pleco Nose

    I received 2 BN pleco fry in the mail a couple weeks ago and just now noticed the little green dragon has a funny point on it’s snout. I thought the head was a slightly odd shape upon receiving it but the little guy is active and healthy so far. Both are in a 20gal growout and eating well, saw a...

    Caridina cf babaulti (Blackberry Shrimp) Experience

    I happened to accidentally, yet again, find myself expecting a fish order in the next few days. In it contains a green BN pleco, calico longfin BN, a few fireline danios to round out my school and something new to me, 5 Caridina cf babaultI shrimp. There is some information online about this...

    Raising Rainbows (Threadfin)

    I’ve never owned rainbow fish until I bought a group of 8 threadfin rainbows off ebay. Unfortunately all were male so I did some digging around and inquiring online before I eventually ended up finding 3 females at my local petstore. Snapped them right up for nearly the same price as my 8 males...

    The Perfect Pair

    I’m starting a new betta breeding thread as the other one is quite out dated and lengthy. This is the main man, a handsome boy I bred, born close to a year ago. This lovely lady was found while browsing ebay, she was quite cheap (18$ shipped) and looks like the male’s long lost twin. They...

    Want To Sell Bulk mixed crypts

    I tackled the crypt forest which hasn’t been thinned in more than a year. There are 3 types in this tank, can’t tell you what is what though. I counted ~40 plants ranging in size from itty bitty to sweet mercy. They’d give a 55gal a good start for mid-ground plants. It’d be a shame to toss them...

    Want To Sell Bulk jungle val

    Just tackled the jungle in my 36gal and I ended up pulling ~20+ plants. As an estimate they could easily fill up a 29gal or line the back of a 55gal. It’d be a shame to toss them all so if someone wants them I can do 18$ shipped (continental US only). I cannot guarantee snail/pest/duckweed free...

    New Christmas/Holiday Tanks?

    The holidays are coming and for some of us, we (or a generous gifter) are getting ourselves a new aquarium setup I somehow managed to get the approval for a new tank to replace the eyesore of a shrimp/snail tote. Plans are to get a 29-40gal tank for my rabbits, ramshorn, cherry shrimp, long...
