HI everyone. I logged in to see how people are doing.
My fish tank is fine. We were gone for 9 days and I left 2 dozen ghost shrimp in the tank. Got back and the ghosties are gone. My fish are all fine. That vacation feeding method has now worked for me twice, so thanks, Jaysee...
Current question: If you were a fish, would you rather live your life in the wild or in an aquarium?
Rules: Answer the question posed in this post. I'll ask a new one as needed, always in this first post. Your answers can be serious, funny, outlandish, creative, long, short... whatever...
Okay, Fishlore, what are your favorite games? Card, board, video, tabletop RPG... anything goes as long as it is FL-appropriate.
The Sims (PC)
(older) Dungeon Siege
(way older) Jagged Alliance (PC)
I've seen this from time to time, but recently, I've seen it a bit more frequently. People aren't always honest with their information when they ask for advice. Does it matter to you guys?
I have to admit that it drives me a little nuts. I feel like if you want to ask for advice, at least...
It's something I've seen come up a couple of times this past week or so, so I thought I'd bring it up in its own thread. Is ich always present in tanks or not?
says it's a myth.
https://www.fishlore.com/Articles/CuringIch.htm says it's true.
Does anyone know?
Lucy just mentioned in another thread that Walmart has a policy to only take back dead fish. What's up with that? They give you a bunch of bad advice and then, when you want to rectify the situation, they won't let you?!
Jaysee is considering moving around some of his stock, which will leave him with an empty 30 gallon hex tank. It is 25 inches tall, and has an 18 inch diameter. He asked me to open a thread asking for stocking suggestions. He'd like to try fish that are not already in his (many) tanks.
Song lyrics (inspired by Elodea)
A few days ago, my signature was lyrics from the Travie McCoy and Bruno Mars song "Billionaire", and Elodea sent me a PM suggesting FL lyrics... so here goes:
I wanna be a billionaire, so freaking bad,
Buy all of the things I never had.
Okay, it's been pointed out to me that if I ask my stocking questions on the public forum, it may help other members.
Quick background that most of you already know: I got sick shortly after setting up my tank last year, and was unable to care for it. My husband did what he could, but what...
We started talking about this, but I didn't want to completely hijack the other thread.
How should you clean your hands before putting them in your tank? I assume that washing with soap is a bad idea? I just scrub mine with water, but I don't always remember to do even that much.
