How about this, if you had more hands would you have an order of prefrence? Like I'm a far lefty, then middle right...ect. Or just one favorite and the rest work like non doms?

I learned to shoot a basketball ball today. Dextrose.

If you say you're not an honest person, but that statement was true, does that make you an honest person?

Hmmmm.... my cherry shrimp are hiding and one seems to be missing. Little Ranchu is pooping something bright red.

I wonder what happened....:rolleyes:

I guess I’ll be putting the shrimp in a breeder box from now on to prevent casualties till I get a better place for them then the 29 gal.

Sigh... oh well. I knew this was a possibility, but I thought I’d have some more time before he got big enough to eat shrimp.

At least my judgmental papaya is fine.
He is staring at me while he does his business though. this is weird.:confused:

I was wondering if that'd work out with them growing up together or not.

I saw my rabbit yawn. Her mouth was a c, it was incredible how c-like her mouth was.

Ooooo, a series of unfortunate events! I just started that one. I read the first book, but I haven’t had the chance to go back to the library for more.

I love it. After you finish it you should watch the Netflix series, it's really good. One of the best book-television adaptions I've seen.

I feel like papaya looks even more judgmental since I put him in the breeder box.

Today I couldn't help but pick up some Corydoras for my aquarium, Albino ones.

Random Thought:

"You guys sure are spending an awful lot of time swimming around gleefully at the top of the aquarium for a bottom dwelling fish.. is the bottom of the tank boring? I realize my filter pumps water super fast, and must be like a waterslide but seriously, go hang out in the cave or the skull or visit the pirate ship. I'm sure the novelty will wear out eventually, but I'm watching you guys right now. Explore a little here!" ‍♀

WHY are air pumps so stinking loud???????????????? :eek:

Not ALL air pumps are loud but it helps if you put them in a box with sponge padding on the side.... then the bubbles are loud

Yeah exactly. I had a Whisper I put in a closed box with Yoga mat padded all around it and it was still loud. I hate them....lol I returned it. They seem to be quietest when they are hanging not touching anything at all.

Just listen to more loud music and it will sound silent...

Whisper pumps are the WORST. I have one and it’s really loud. I like my other air pump way better. It’s some Chinese generic brand, but it’s way nicer then the whisper pump. The generic is way quieter and feels like it’s built better, but it doesn’t pump a ton of air so it’s only good for a 10 gallon or so.



Uh oh... oh snap... I think one of my shrimp just up and died just now while I was looking at this thread.:eek: I’m panicking.

Update: I tested the water. 0 ammonia 0 nitrite and 0 nitrate. He’s been in this tank for a couple weeks. I’m dumbfounded. Why did he die?

I did net him to put him in the breeder box earlier today. Did I hurt him somehow? I tried to be gentle.

Why did you put it there? Maybe the stress of being caught and imprisoned got it? Or the breeder box had bad circulation and despite the tank itself being ok the box got anoxic or something?

I had a sneaking suspicion that one of my fish snacked on a shrimp, so I put the shrimp in a breeder box with some plants to see if it got better.

the breeder box has tank water flowing through is and is full of plants, so I doubt it’s a water issue. I did just do a waterchange yesterday so several of the shrimp decided to molt. If this particular shrimp was molting of trying to molt, then it would have been easy for him to get injured or stressed by my netting him into the box, even if I was gentle. The other possibility is that he tried to molt and had some other issue.

I still feel so horrible though. ops:

Based on what you just said, I'm assuming it was already injured? Then here you have it. Probably died from that injury, nothing to do with water or you.

I noticed a fish having bright red cherry shrimp colored poops and it seemed like some shrimp were missing, so I put all my remaining shrimp in a breeder box. I suppose it’s possible a fish injured him before hand. He may have just been molting, and when I netted him he was easily hurt. I really don’t know what happened.

sigh... oh well.


AqAdvisor is wacked. It says ADFs are not recommended for a 5 gallon and will outgrow the tank very quickly.

according to AqAdvisor, 2 ADFs in a 5 gallon is 200% stocking level... hmmm.

(and yes, this is what it says for ADFs, not ACFs).



First time feeding my ADFs. They got bloodworms and mysis shrimp. I think the chubby little munchkins like me now.

I’m drinking coffee flavored water... e.I. Decaf

Decaf is only good when you are going to dump a bunch of cream and sugar and stuff in it... which is what I’m doing, so this works out.
