  1. I was moving a golden male to a pond and his (short) fins were flared out. It was so cool I had to show my wife. White clouds really are neat!
  2. When breeding in tubs do you pull out juveniles after a specific time to allow more spawns from the adults (do juveniles prey on fry?) or do you leave them in for the season?
  3. I mostly just hatch baby brine but for longer storage I would expect you would want the same perimeters: Clean water (this would look different depending on brine shrimp stocking vs. water volume), oxygen, food (if you want them to last longer), and survivable temperatures (I hatch mine at room temperature). Cory has a good brine shrimp pond thread, you could look into doing a mini one if you wanted, which it sounds like what AnimalNerd98 is doing.
  4. Are you having any luck? I know that the White clouds are not known to actively predate their young but I thought Danios did.
  5. I am breeding Golden White Clouds both in ponds and inside. It is my first time breeding and quite exciting, I think I am hooked.
  6. Cory has said that racoons take chunks out of his sponge filter... maybe yours like to destroy plants?
  7. I remember in previous livestream Cory talking about puffers being known to have internal parasites and having to de worm them multiple times (over time). That may be something to keep in mind going forward.
  8. I throw my hard wood in the dishwasher, haven't had any issues yet though one piece always funguses up every time despite my cleaning (I don't use that piece currently). For my scaping, I allow my self to re-organize the tank if I don't like it. I have a 45 and a 10 gal that have both gone through several iterations since first getting them. Since I am continually learning, this has been instrumental. It allows me to start a project that otherwise I would procrastinate on because of being overwhelmed. I do let them sit for months, to allow plant growth, before deciding if something needs to be changed. Also, I have found that if I am not happy with the scape/tank I don't put as much effort into caring for it. So having an enjoyable setup is important for me. TLDR; Plan it out, have fun, do it and if you don't like it in 6 month, change it up.
  9. You could always layer some dirt on the bottom too as a no cost way.
  10. I have a 70 gal half sunk into the ground and found that dirt is a fairly good "insulator", at least it keeps the temp from big fluctuations. what is your purpose for insulating? are you trying to keep it warmer/cooler?
  11. If you want some more info about swords. Look up Greg Sage (select aquatics). He has some good info about the swords he breeds and has talked about them in videos including the one Cory did of his fish room on aquarium Co-op's you tube channel.
  12. An older article with some familiar names. It motivates me to do more breeding. https://e360.yale.edu/features/basement-preservationists-can-hobbyists-save-rare-fish-from-extinction
