  1. I just recently decided to buy frozen food online in bulk, because I couldn’t always find the variety I wanted. I purchased blood worms, cyclops, rotifers, daphnia and brine shrimp (that were feed spirolina)
  2. I love sparkling gouramies. I have kept them in various tank for many years. I always provide them with lots of plants and have had them spawn once in my 20 long. ( unfortunately I lost the tiny fry when I tried to move them to a separate grow tank. In the future I will probably leave them with the male) I currently have small group in my 125 gal heavily planted community tank, they are fascinating to watch.
  3. Here in California I have a good local source of black worms , I treat my fish every so often with live black worms. I use to have a local shop that during winter months would have live glass worms from Minnesota (I was told they were harvested from under the ice of the Great Lakes). I have never seen live blood worms for sale, but I used to collect them along with mosquito larvae in small temporary pools here in California (unlike mosquito larva the would gather near the bottom of the pools).
  4. Fishfolk I love this idea. Any reason you that particular tea?
  5. I have both Lemon tetras and Red Phantom tetras and have never had aggressive behavior as long as you have six or more. Serpa tetras on the other hand do tend to be a little nippy.
  6. While trying to produce your own eggs wouldn’t be cost affective, I would think that a large wholesaler good find the sweet spot where this might be doable.
  7. I have not personally kept them, but from I have read they require the same care as your standard otocinclus. Make sure you have a well established tank because the trick to keeping otocinclus is getting them to eat. I have had good success with community rapashi.
  8. If you still can’t find them, open up your canister filter, you might be surprised. They can often survive and thrive inside a canister filter. I have found many shrimp alive and happy when servicing my canister and I simply collect them and put them back in the tank. I have since stopped using canister filters for a variety of reasons, but many a time when I bothered to clean them I would find a number of live shrimp.
  9. I spary paint the bottom and the back of the tank with black krylon paint. This eliminates the reflection.
  10. Just remember that the aquarium coop method is a preventative method, if you believe your fish actually has a specific disease then pick the appropriate medication and follow the manufactures directions. If on the other hand you are using the Co op quarantine (preventative treatment), don’t go by the manufactures directions, follow Cory’s step by step instructions shown in his videos.
  11. I have a good luck with “The wet spots” located in Oregon, they have a large selection of fish and reasonable shipping. Also if you are ever in Oregon check out the retail store. My wife and checked it on on our way back home to California after visiting a friend. Also Cory has a video of his visit to the shop.
  12. You can also use plastic mesh which you can find on Amazon or your local craft store.
  13. I recently spawned a batch of Cherry barbs and now have about 30+ in my 29 gallon with about 15 ember tetras , tons of Crystal red shrimp and about half a dozen dwarf corries (hastatus). Everyone gets along great and often school together. The tank is heavily plant particular with suswarsertang which the shrimp love.
