    How Often To “clean” Filters? Or Have I Found A Magic Zone?

    PLEASE don’t yell at me for this, this has been more of a “I spent a year losing fish even though I did everything by the book, but now that I’m not, nothing is going wrong” situation. I used to be ocd about WC’s, master water test kit checking twice a week, everything had to be perfect...and I...

    Is This Malawi (mbuna) Cichlid Bloat? Think He Is Going To Die

    Ram Tank Design

    I think I’m in a pickle. I’ve read about and seen most ram (Bolivian and german blue) tanks are planted but in groups of plants with lots of open swimming space and driftwood, and either I did it wrong the first time I tried live plants (aside from the plants dying, I also had trouble keeping...

    Ahhh! Help! I Had Baby Yellow Labs ... Now What?!?

    I will start this off with the fact I had NO desire to breed. It also turns out electric yellow labs can apparently hide their colors so what I thought I had separated as all girls apparently wasn’t (as one finally took on striking black in all the right places). I noticed chipmunk cheeks on...
