  1. In my area, a lot of LFS, and Mom & Pop stores were willing to take them in. I made sure to visit them beforehand to make sure they were in good hands, and that the fish stores knew their stuff. A majority of the LFS knew what they were doing, some not so much. Like one of the fish stores, on the call, they were nice, and seemed like a good place. They asked if any of the fish were sick, so on and so forth. However, when we actually went there, it was filthy, and there were dead fish in the tanks, and looked like they haven't had maintenance ina while. I guess it really depends on the hobbyist and/or Fish store receiving the fish. As for your specific fish, as long as their peaceful, healthy, etc. they will most likely will be willing to take them in. The bettas with the cardinals together is a little iffy. The bettas might get territorial with the cardinals. Also, the cardinals might get nippy. I guess it depends on the personality, and even so, you might encounter problems. I'm not sure about the fish stores in Phoenix, but mine were happy to take them in. I hope this helped in any way. 😀
  2. A little update. Sadly, we decided we have to give our fish away. 😢 We think that the stress of travel would be a little too much for them. We're going to give them away to a LFS. They said they'd be more than happy to bring them in. Hopefully, they'll end up in a good home!
  3. I found them on Youtube. I think I was researching on sponge filters. I came to love Aquarium Co-op. They are now one of our favorite fish stores!
  4. We'll be movin somewhere near Marietta. I heard that humidity was pretty bad down there. Hopefully, we'll get used to it. 😂
  5. Thank you for the tips! That gave me some reassurance. Washington to Georgia is a pretty long drive though. I'll think things through. The tip for packing the tank really helped. I didn't want it to get cracked in transit 😅
  6. Thank you! Using the 5 gallon buckets is genius! I might use that trick later on. @GuppysnailDo you think the stress of travel would be too much for my neons?
  7. Hi all, We are moving from Washington to Georgia. We have a 10 gallon tank, and we haven't moved with an aquarium before so I would be most thankful if you could give some insight on how to move/pack a tank. Thank you in advance!
  8. Do you have any floating plants perhaps? If there are too many floating plants, it could stop the oxygen exchange.
  9. If it smells like rotten eggs, it's probably Hydrogen Sulfide. Hydrogen Sulfide occurs when there is decomposing organic matter (fish food, dead plants, waste, etc.) Usually, anaerobic bacteria is the culprit. It occurs when there isn't enough flow. Since there isn't enough flow, and or, oxygen, it might be the anaerobic bacteria taking over, and using the fish waste, as the Hydrogen Sulfide is one of it's by products. That explains why it only happens when you gravel vac. Since the gas is being released from the pockets when you disturb it. Try adding a powerhead, or getting a more powerful filter to help circulate the tank, and get rid of the anaerobic bacteria. Hope this helped 😀
  10. Washington. Used to be a lot cooler here in August. This year was really hot. It would get up in the 80's and 90's! I had to put a fan over my tanks to cool them down. Most of the A.C's were sold out! lol
  11. I don't think they will hatch regardless. Its like chicken eggs. If you got a dud, it just won't hatch. Hope this helped! 😄
  12. You can! There are little tabs for the substrate, background, hardscape, and plants.
  13. I recently found out about this cool online scaping simulator. I am planning for a new tank, and decided to give this a shot. While it isn't perfect, it was certainly fun to play around with it. I could have done this for hours! Here's the scape I did on this website. I have to say its pretty cool. It's called scape-it.io
  14. The puffer looks gorgeous in the sunlight. I don't know. There is something about the natural light coming into your aquarium that is just so appealing. I have a tank on a southern window. the plants in the tank start pearling whenever the sun starts to hit the tank. My neon tetras have almost an iridescent glow when placed in the sun! Though its quite a pain to balance it.
  15. I think a blackwater setup would be great. Along with lots of anubias and crypts! Your betta is so cute!
  16. Thank you! I can't believe I missed that! 😂
  17. Hi! I was wondering how to add a signature. I scoured my profile page, but I just couldn't find it. I'm not a very tech savvy person. 😅
  18. Hmm... Not so sure. I'm still a newbie to this hobby so take my advice with a grain of salt. With angelfish, if their eggs turn white, it usually means they are unfertilized. I'm not sure if this is the case with other cichlids. But, the unfertilized ones might rot in a few days. Hope this helps.😄
  19. Hi! I bought some new fish foods in September. (One of them is Hikari Tropical Micro pellets) I couldn't finish the whole bag in a reasonable time, so I took Irene's advice, and bagged them up in the freezer. It's been about 9 months since I froze the extra food. How long do you think they can stay good?
  20. Whoa! Those are eyecatchers! Love the iridescent colours. Good luck with your project!
  21. Hmm... I don't know. I as a newbie, still haven't tried any nightime lights in my tanks. When I read up on it, I had conflicting messages. Some say that blue light is perfectly fine, and others say that having it on is harmful to their sleep. Some say that red leds are okay. Here are a couple of the articles. However, I would do some more research and come to a conclusion myself. https://petfishonline.com/fish-sleep-blue-light/#:~:text=Fish cannot sleep with blue,transition between light and darkness. https://www.yourfishguide.com/can-fish-sleep-with-a-red-light-on/. https://jaljeev.com/why-does-an-aquarium-have-blue-light/. Hope this helped! 🙂
  22. Wow! Those are some impressive crypts! The names of your fish are really funny! Your tanks look great!
  23. Thank you for the replies! I will take them in mind. I'll try out the maracyn. 🙂
