The castle? I like it too. I like that and my wife likes the coliseum best, so we have both in there.FLBettaCouple said:nicely done - I really like that one large piece of decor that you have in there.
cool.. where did you find it? I like the coliseum too, but really go for the castle.hamstermann said:The castle? I like it too. I like that and my wife likes the coliseum best, so we have both in there.
They both came from Petsmart. I support my LFS as much as I can but they just don't have as great a selection of decorations like that as Petsmart does. and I think the castle was only around $24. Petco had one like that for near $50. I couldn't believe the price difference.FLBettaCouple said:
.FLBettaCouple said:that's funny because I did the same thing with a little castle in our femalle Betta's tank. with the little castle though, it would just build up until a huge bubble got released, lol. I was wondering where the pleco hid.. what type of pleco is he?
we only have a petco, so i'm now doing most, if not all of my shopping at the DFS website, since they are routinely 40-50% below petco's prices and pretty much always cheaper on everything.
That sounds like a total nightmare. So sorry to hear that. Best of luck with all of this. I hate the problems with no known cause. They're the worst. I sometimes wish I had bad nitrates, then I'd know.hamstermann said:one of my platys died of what we suspect to be tb or a parasite and now it looks like another one's on its way out. we also can't seem to keep our otos from dying and don't know why. the parameters are good - 0 ammonia, 0 ites 0 ates, 7.4 ph and about 78 degrees farenheit. in addition to those 2 issues, we also have pond snails that we're waging war on.
I'd definitely agree with that. They're so entertaining.hamstermann said:But yeah, we've worked hard to have a nice variety of colors and patterns -espescially in our mollies. we have a silver, an orange mottled, and 2 black mottleds. They're fun to watch.
can't offer any real sound advice on the mystery losses, but might be able to help with the snail problem.we also have pond snails that we're waging war on.
