  1. I've been battling with H. Septicemia for a few months now in two of my tanks. I've pretty much tried evey medication with zero success. Fish are not dying, just becoming more and more red 😞 I think it's time to let them go. In total I will need to euthanize around 6-7 fish at once. To be honest this almost makes me want to quit the hobby altogether. I am going to use clove oil in a large plastic container. Has anyone else ever had to kill so many fish at one time? Need support here 😞
  2. We should all share our ideas on 55g breeding for profit set ups. I am in the process of putting one together. After watching several of Corey's videos on breeding for profit, here is what I have come up with. 2M/4F guppy or endler (i can't decide) 1M/2F Ancistrus or a fancy pleco such as Blue Phantom Cherry Shrimp Corydoras (will try for Sterbai if I can find some) Java Moss or Juppy Grass What do you think of this set up and do you see any issues?
  3. I need to buy a whole bunch of these but i'm in Canada 😞 Corey please figure something out for your Canadian followers!!!
  4. I sometimes use Reef salt as therapy for my african cichlids and i must say that it works really well. Not sure I would use it on fish that prefer softer water however.
  5. I was thinking Honey Gourami but I'm not sure about the cool water temperature.
  6. What ratio of bleach solution? I'm going to fill a bin and throw all my decorations and equipment in there. Also for how long should it soak in the solution for?
  7. I searched the forums and to my surprise I didn't find any posts on the ethics of fishkeeping. I've been in the hobby for just over 20 years and it's something that I've struggled with as I got older. I'm now in my mid 40's. I stopped keeping birds a long time ago because birds were born to fly and not to be kept in a cage. Sometimes I feel the same way about fish. We take them from the wild for our pleasure. I'd like to hear you arguments with the hopes of someone saying something to make me feel better about keeping fish in captivity.
  8. Easy. Set it and forget it...to a point. High numbers that are easy to unload at LFS. I'm thinking guppy at this point and blue phantom plecos.
  9. I added three Aquaclear 50 sponges into the very mature Aquaclear 110 on my main tank. How long will it take for the new sponges to be fully seeded?
  10. Which guppy variety is the most sought after these days?
  11. I think I'd like to try a guppy colony. Which variety though?
  12. What would you suggest with plecos? Won't other fish eat Pleco eggs?
