  1. I paid $19.99 at ACO about 6-9 months ago. Probably around that ballpark range still. Can’t go wrong with ACO fish!
  2. I saw this mentioned above @TheSwissAquarist, but thank you for trying to help me out. I was hoping they would have an idea which day they were leaning towards at this time of the week. My drive to Aquarium Coop is not a close one unfortunately.
  3. Hey @brandonnaturally! Would you happen to know which day the Panda Corydoras will be available for purchase? Hoping I could grab some this Sunday if they’re ready!
  4. Hi everyone- My 40g breeder tank currently has 10 Rummy Nose Tetras, 12 Cardinal Tetras, and 1 Hillstream loach. I’ve noticed that the Loach would dive upwards and downwards at the tetras during the evening after 7pm before lights shutoff at 9pm. I’ve had this Loach for about 7-9 months and it just recently started doing this. Is this aggression or playing? Lol
  5. Welcome to the forum! I am also a Washingtonian, lol.
  6. Welcome to the forum! Your tanks look great! I can’t wait for the rest of my plants to arrive next week, lol. This gives me inspiration.
  7. Welcome to the forum! A betta fish is how I ended up here as well, lol. This hobby is pretty addicting! 🤣🤣
  8. Hi everyone- I bought some Crinum Calamistratum two weeks ago that is being quarantined in my 10g qt tank currently. I have some Anubias Barteri ‘Coffeefolia’, and some Lava Rocks that will be here next week. What should I be looking for during this quarantine process? So far, the Calamistratum has brought in two baby snails that just now became visible to the naked eye. Is there anything else I should be looking for besides snails and maybe other unwanted pests? I’ve also seen people quarantine for as long as 1 week and up to 1 month. Anyone have any input on how long to quarantine plants? As for the Lava Rocks, do I need to wash them down really well before quarantining them with the plants? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.
  9. Hey @brandonnaturally! Do you think you could upload a picture of the hillstream loaches? Would love to see their pattern before commuting all the way up when available. I went to the shop last week and you guys were unfortunately sold out of them 😭 Thank you!
  10. Beautiful GBR’s! Is it possible that 2 males could of paired with each other? I had 2 other normal GBR’s in the tank, 1 male and 1 female, but after introducing this Golden Ram, they ended up killing the other 2.
  11. Hello all- Sorry if I posted in the wrong place, but could someone help me confirm if I have a male or female Golden Ram? Can provide more pictures if necessary! These two been pecking at the rock for weeks, but no eggs yet unfortunately. Thank you!
  12. Hi everyone- Sorry to bring up another topic about fishless cycling to this group, but I have a question about Dr. Tim’s Fishless Cycle. I used the Dr. Tim’s fishless cycle method this time around and all my ammonia and nitrites have dropped to 0 after about 3 weeks and was left with Nitrates. I did the “final test” and added my Ammonia drops to see if everything will read 0 after 24 hours. Unfortunately after 24 hours I still had 1ppm of ammonia and about 2ppm of nitrites. Does this mean I still need to wait for everything to drop to 0 and perform another 24 hour test? Or could I add fish in after everything drops back to 0. Thank you! Appreciate any feedback.
  13. Thank you @Fish Folk! I have some Erythromycin laying around that we used on our Betta fish. I will give that a shot. Appreciate your help!
  14. Hi everyone- This is my new goldfish named Boba. He came with a white spot on his Wen and just one small one on his body. From what I read online last week, the white spot on his Wen was a indication that his Wen was growing. He always had the one white spot on his body as well, but now I am starting to notice a couple more white spots around his face and one on his tail. Would this be Ick by any chance? Any advice would be great! Thank you!
