  1. Update: They ate the eggs 😞 and now one (I think the female) has become extremely aggressive towards the other. I had to split them up. A sad ending!
  2. Well I purchased a lone jewel cichlid that I saw on petco all alone and sad in a corner of the tank. Figured it would be ok in my green terror tank since I;ve read these can be kept with americans sometimes. No problems at all! Decided to get a second one from a LFS and welp, they came out to be male and female, and after literally days of having them I come home to this: True to their reputation, they quickly cornered my green terror, yes the fish that I had to house alone cause it was a nightmare, yikes. Moved the green terror to my 100g tank and now only the jewel pair remains in the 45g. Any tips? Which food should I give the fry? I was thinking cory's fry food. I was in the process of setting up a 75g for angelfish, but uh oh change of plans, I'll make it a jewel cichlid tankπŸ˜…
  3. Wow what an absolute improvement, and a testament of both pleco's resilience and wonders of aquarium salt. It's night and day! Job well done.
  4. pH - 7.6 Nitrates - 20ppm Hardness - 370ppm Nitrite - 0 Ammonia - 0 KH/Buffer - 230ppm Water Temperature - 78 F My oscar has had this cyst/tumor like spot for a while now. Is it serious? What's it called?
  5. We got hard tap water, so I always suggest people to get mollies as first fish. They become bulletproof in our water!
  6. I'd love a new era, flat bill cap. I'm not that much of a mesh cap fan 😞 Perhaps another easy green fert without nitrogen, kind of designed for heavily stocked tanks where you just need the mucros and not the extra nitrogen? Could call it "easy green lite" lol! I'd also like longer uplift tubes for the sponge filters. Also keychains and lanyards!
  7. First one is moonlight gourami, and the other ones look like silver dollar (spotted one). Not sure of the other ones are sliver dollars too, or baby pacu hmmm.
  8. pH - 7.6 Nitrates - 20ppm Hardness - 360ppm Nitrite - 0 Ammonia - 0 KH/Buffer - 250ppm Water Temperature - 79F Hi! While visitingg my petco I found this little guy that I loved due to the white/yellowish coloration, but he was also struggling and seemed to be in his last moments, breathing rapidly and staying on his side at the bottom of the cup. The big softie in me decided to buy him and see if I can nurse him back to health. It's been about a week now, been keeping a close eye on him. He seems to be much better, at least now he can get off his siide, but it seems he cannot swim upward, he just sinks. Do you think his swimbladder is gone? He also has blackened gills but I'm not sure if that's just natural coloration. I've managed to make him eat vibra bites hand-fed with tongs, placed it near his mouth and he gobbled it up, so his appetite seems to be just fine. Any idea what can I do to help the little guy get better? If not guess I'll hand feed him for the rest of hiis life like a baby lol! So far I've treated the water just with praziquantel.
  9. Those are super stunning! What type are they? They you for your help guys! Imma go with ecocomplete!
  10. I've been using ACCR and it's great, does it's job well. Been dosing straight to the tank and putting tap water with a garden hose at the same time. Haven't had any problem and fish don't seem stressed! Definitely works, plus, it's real easy to dose with regular kitchen measuring spoons, or co-op's very own measuring spoon. It also has no smell.
  11. It has enough power to move the media once they are cycled. In the beginning, the media will float to the top and most will sit there, but after a few weeks, the buoyancy changes and can tumbled around with little effort! I will post a video tomorrow.
  12. Hi guys, I've always wanted a dedicated angelfish tank and I think it's time I get one! The 55g seems ok for them, I'm planning to put 6-8 golden marbled angelfish. I want them to stand out really good so I will be painting the background black, and adding a black substrate. Do you guys have any dedicated angelfish tanks? I would love to get ideas from you, if you could post a photo that would be great!. I cannot decide which substrate to get, I'm looking at CaribSea Ecocomplete and Fluval Stratum. It seems stratum might be a bit better and more nutritious, but I am not a big fan of the spherical shaped grain, I like the more natural, rough, rocky look of the ecocomplete. Any commentary? Thanks! Happy new year!
  13. Hi guys, I'm sure there are lot of beginners that often see a fish in a youtube video that catches their eye, but unfortunately you don't know the name. I would like to start this thread (I think there's none?) so people can come and post a screenshot of a fish and have it identified by the more knowledgeable people, that way we can keep these requests in one single thread? If an admin thinks this is sticky worthy, cool! I'll start, I saw this tetra in one of cory's videos, anyone knows which one is it?
  14. They look like seed shrimp! Common in seasoned, well established tanks, also harmless and great fry food, if I remember correctly. http://en.wikipedia.org//static/favicon/wikipedia.ico Ostracod - Wikipedia EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG
