  1. Yep. You’re right. I’m wrong. I assumed they were asexual. My bad. A female can hold sperm for up to nine months. I was not aware of that.
  2. They are asexual so they don’t need help.
  3. You would have to talk to your LFS to see if they need mystery snails. But if you move them don’t put them under water. You see how the mystery snail laid the eggs above the water line? You will need to do the same thing.
  4. Yep. Looks like a mystery snail egg cluster. I don’t think pleco eggs cluster like that, do they?
  5. I don't need the help for flow. My 8 inch air stone provides quite enough flow, but you are right having the HOB to have a place to hide a bag of crushed coral or over things is helpful. Thanks for the reminder.
  6. Actually, I have never really been interested in a canister filter, but that could be because I have never had one. I have always liked my HOBs but because of the potential of fry from my Angels and hopefully my Cories, I'm really considering all Sponge filters. The mattenfilter is a great idea, but I didn't want to make that much fuss with my current plant layout and I would have to disturb well established plants in one of my back corners if I implemented a mattenfilter. Thanks for the suggestion though. I agree. It always helps to have them around in case of an emergency.
  7. Howdy all, Glad I found this thread. I have a 90 gallon tank that I plan on replacing the two HOB with Sponge filters. I have two Marineland Penguin 350 Bio-wheels on the tank. How many sponge filters should I use? Three of the large 40-60 gallon sponge filters? Does someone have another suggestion? FYI - my water movement is provided by an 8 inch air stone bar that I have set up parallel to the right side of the tank, so I don’t need a HOB for that.
  8. You know if the Cardinals, Rasboras and Guppies start eating the small ones eventually the big breeding ones will die and there will be none to do the breeding... if the other fish eat enough of the small ones. That is a lot of scuds in a bucket. Oh. They are a freshwater crustacean, so they are like shrimp, and I read somewhere that they are sometimes called freshwater shrimp.
  9. There needs to be a “Holy Crap!” reaction image. Dang that is a lot of scuds. Have you thought of not feeding at all? Guppies will supposedly eat scuds, but if you are keeping them full they have no reason to look for other food. Maybe your Rasboras will eat the small ones… if they are hungry. Have any friends with Cichlids or Killifish? I have read that they like to eat scuds.
  10. I have wanted to try cuttlebone but haven’t been able to find any locally that is just plain cuttlebone that isn’t engineered or flavored. I use egg shells that I grind to powder with a coffee bean/spice grinder. I add it directly and mixed with food. I started doing that when I saw the shrimp snacking on the ground egg shells.
  11. “I was thinking about having 8 Candycane tetras and some snowball and Red Rili Shrimp, but I am still open to ideas.” Sounds great. Don’t forget the Christmas Tree Moss. 🎄
  12. Oops. Oh well it happens. Some people are happy with you and others aren't. Nothing you can do about that.
