  1. Are you talking about the roots growing circular or the plant? I think you could tempt this plant to grow into just about any shape with encouragement and patience. Fishing line may work but you could also consider floral wire or bonsai wire- that's depending on what material it's made out of if it's in water or not. I grow bonsai and use wire to manipulate, but also grow bamboo so similar stuff but never tried with anubias which frankly is one of my favorite aquatic plants. I attached another possible shape that was more like what was in my head but again it's orchids- anubias could easily be pictured there.
  2. Never tried to grow it that way but don't see why it couldn't work. I'm wondering if you could do like a partial water landscape and grow anubias like bamboo or some orchids. Maybe get a rectangular glass "vase", glue the anubias to a piece of longer driftwood and stick one side into the water with whatever combo of rocks/dirt in the bottom, depending on how the anubias reacts you could submerge it more or less and with a container like that you could see how it's doing underwater too. The attached not so much for an anubias and too busy, but an example- and the kind of glass I'm talking about.
  3. Apparently the baby fish trick also works with baby plants in @Fish Folk's house!!🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🐟🐡🐠🐬🐡🐋🦈🐚🦐🐌

  5. I don't run heat so I can't speak to that, but all my tanks are going to have some sort of sponge filter even those with "internal filtration" have a tiny hygger (a recent discovery that fits perfectly in back of my Flex)- each run by a lithium battery backed air pump. They are plugged in but switch to battery power when power is cut/out. My two 20gallon talls have 2 air pump driven filters, 2 are run by a Tetra Whisper and 2 are run by a battery backed pump.

  8. I bet it was a room divider of some kind, I could see that thing in an office between a lobby and offices.
  9. Had to have been custom...my volume calculator says it's 72.3 gallons. That thing is super narrow!
  10. That's what I'm thinking @Colu. Since the visible injury is now healed and seems to be eating normally I'm at a loss as to what to do. I might put it back into one of my tanks but think I may need to keep it isolated in a breeder box so I can make sure it doesn't get picked on and eats.
  11. Just to continue on the process here. I've completed 1 round of Furan2, no change- fishy is still swimming vertically- has eaten thawed frozen bloodworms eagerly (1 or 2 a day for the last 6 days). Today since I was totally at a loss as to what to do next I just did the 25% water change you do with Furan2 and started a 2nd round. Put in about a tablepoon of Aquarium salt as well. Other than swimming constantly vertical there are no other outward signs of illness. Tagging you @Colu just so you can also see my update.
  12. @DebSills I agree with @PineSong. It's not likely you did anything wrong. Which is more than we can say for the original pet owner.
  13. Since they're wild caught 99 times out of a 100 yes, they probably are carrying something. I actually have used Seachem's Paraguard on them many times with success. As long as general cure will treat parasites it may work. I like Paraguard because it also treats Ich among other things. Depending on what they have raising temperature could help- or not. I would say maybe start with the meds since you haven't narrowed down what it really is.
  14. Hahah, yea they hide most of the day, there's a decorative bridge and other little hidey spots and they both cram themselves in those the majority of their days- yes, absolutely normal. This is why they are often kept with fish and other more visible creatures cause you don't always see them!
  15. Well, just to update. Since nobody piped in and after having to clean the stock pump a few times in a week to get it back to full flow before it clogged again (and there was nothing visually clogging it) I ended up buying a random, adjustable (since the stock one isn't)pump on Amazon (harder to find small pumps that aren't high output I've discovered) and putting it in the tank. I also removed the aftermarket low flow spray bar and put on the stock one (though I don't think that was contributing to the issue, but more on that in a second) and removing the aftermarket grate/vent covers and putting back on the stock ones. I also got a VERY small Hygger nano tank sponge filter (that has an output and suction cup), added an air pump/line and stuck it in the back filter area for extra filtration. Why the overkill you ask? Well because the original pump wasn't doing its job my tank got sick- with Ich. Had to pull the Nerite out and treat with Paraguard. I'm on day 18 (I treat until I see zero spots for at least 7 days and I have 3 more days going by that rule now). The tank gets warm too, weird because my 3 gallon used to sit in the same spot it'd get 81 at peak of the day. This tank is already close to 80 in the morning and at last checck at 4pm my time it was 81.9- so no need to use a heater (even for Ich treatment).
