  1. I have kuhli loaches and pygmy corys and feed them Xtreme Community Crave.
  2. Hit me with your favorites! SA/CA only. I'm not looking to set up a biospecific tank, but I do want to keep fish from the same overall area.
  3. To clarify, I'm moving her from one tank to another within the same fish room, perhaps 15 feet. My question revolves more around netting the beastie, not the move itself. As you probably know, Arowana are jumpers and even after I had the tank 50% drained during a water change a while back, she was still able to launch herself up and out. My biggest net, while fairly large, cannot contain even half her mass. I'm thinking a pillow case? I thought maybe a koi net-sock thing but most of them are $50ish and that seems a bit extravagant for something I don't plan on using more than twice.
  4. I know Cory isn't into the big fish so much anymore (Murphy & Ladybird aside), but if he or any of you have an idea on how to move a 20+ in arowana, I'm open to suggestions and/or advice. *Edit* To clarify, I'm moving her from one tank to another within the same fish room, perhaps 15 feet.

  5. I heard Hat Trick Farm Joey say over on a morning Live stream earlier this week with Father Fish that the design has changed, at least in the smaller models. She said she has to buy a 110 soon and will let us know. If this proves to be true, the best feature - the oversized media basket - is no longer easy to customize and, in my opinion, transforms this rattletrap of a filter into junk. Has anyone purchased the 110 model recently? Can anyone confirm or deny?
  6. I want to do a non-regional non-lake specific african tank; housing several species from all over the continent. What stocking recommendations would you make? Keep in mind, I want representation from the three big lakes, as well as streams and rivers.
  7. I'm upgrading my betta "Bowl", which is a bare bottom 2.5g glass cookie jar filtered with a small sponge and heated with a Sicce Jolly mini heater. Needless to say, 14 gallons is a fair sight bigger than the current accommodations and I'm a long time keeper of the big bodied SA & CA Cichlids. The kind of fish that are prone to move the substrate around to their oqn liking on a daily basis. Because of that, I have never really tried my hand at aquascaping. Here's what I'm thinking: Crushed coral substrate. Blue background, maybe red. I'll have to upgrade the heater to a 50w Eheim/Jager. The Aqueon clip light I have on the Bowl. Anubias for plants. A small piece of spiderwood (provided I can find something that speaks to me) and Lace rock for the hardscape. A six pack of Cory cats and a threesome of male Fancy Tail Guppies for tankmates. What do YOU advise?
  8. Cory/Dean/Candi, I recently bought water sprite from the Co-Op and it's already dying back hard. The plan was to plant it in my 29g (soon-to-be) guppy tank which has stingray lighting, but the heater is wonky and, although currently on and set to 80°, the water remains at room temp (68°). That being what it is, I thought I'd keep it in my planted 75g until a new heater could be secured, but it is definitely not doing well in there (standard kit lighting that is very old). Does water temperature factor into keeping plants like it does with the fish themselves or do they do well regardless (assuming there's plenty of "food" for them? Thanks, Whip
  9. I'm always looking for deals on food and filters. Who's found them and where?
