  1. Hi all, just curious on how people carry out in their pleco breeding process. I have around 15 fry in a cave rn( free swimming) and the male has left the cave for another. I only have snails and the pair of plecos in the tank. Would it be reasonable to move the fry into a plastic breeding box or do people generally let them be and figure out how to find food for themselves. I’ve never seen them outside of the cave myself.
  2. Unfortunately I don’t live near Washington🥲 maybe I’ll just risk ordering some and seeing if I get lucky😅 thanks for the pointers I kinda figured they would be too young most stores around me sell F8s or Dragon puffers unfortunately haven’t gotten to see if I could sex them myself.
  3. Hi, I have heard of how it is possible to sex pea puffers in order to attempt to get “less aggressive” puffers or in other words get more females, but I have never experienced doing this in stores are puffers generally too small in stores for this or is there a place that sells puffers experienced enough to sex them?
  4. What kind of substrate are you using? It could be the reason it dropped to 6.0. In planted tanks if you have root feeders or any plants, depending on how nasty is nasty of course, siphoning the substrate isn’t as necessary as you think. I have tanks I never clean the substrate that often maybe once a month or two I go over them for debris but the rest my plants use for nutrients. I hope you can figure out the cause so it can be fixed and your aquarium hobby continues!
  5. Hi all, I was curious on which heaters that were somewhat compact people have went to when buying or setting up a 10g fish tank. In aq co op’s tutorial on breeding apistogrammas where dean setups the tank he puts in a heater and I was curious if anyone knew the brand or a similar one that works well? Appreciate any help on this!!
  6. Neocaridinia most likely, but I never know what I end up with in this hobby😂 that’s good too know will have to grab a few crypts!! Do you keep any sort of tetras or rasboras? I thought of maybe trying a nice pencil fish school in if I felt I needed something above them.
  7. Hi all, I was looking into seething up a tank for some habrosus corydoras to breed in a colony style I’m not sure if I’ll invest in a fish to keep around the top to keep with them, but will shrimp and snails decimate the egg population or if I plant heavy enough should I be able to see fry eventually. Appreciate the information!
  8. What fish do you keep them in? A community setting or just like white clouds above them?
  9. So I was curious on how rare females are in Hillstream loaches. Should I buy more than 6 if I’m searching for a a pair or should that be enough to atleast get one female with luck. Just curious on other people’s experiences with this fish!
  10. Hi all, I am in need of replacing my light and I want an easy option I don’t have any demanding plants just low light ones ( anubias, Java fern, hornwort) I was curious if anybody has any shop lights or if I should just go with a Finnex stingray 48” I’m not too picky I have Finnex stingrays and love them, but wanna try maybe the super budget options that still grow plants I’m not afraid to scrub some algae;)
  11. Hi all, my ph ranges from 7.4-7.6 with harder water (260ppm+) I do not have a way to purchase any apistogramma locally. That being said I would like to breed something new to me and was curious if any like borelli, agassizii, or any other variations could actually breed in harder water.
  12. Hi all, just curious on everyone’s go to fish for the top part of the tank? Preferably peaceful fish!
  13. Hi all, I have seen many different preferences on what conditions for a tank to keep angelfish in and I’m curious on other people’s opinions. I have heard nothing under 18 in depth, 40 breeder is too shallow, a 29 is fine, but with all of this I am not looking for a community but maybe a pair and then a bottom feeder to clean up after them. What are ideal conditions for raising angelfish.
  14. Thank you very much exactly what I was looking for!
  15. Hi all, I am looking at a way to switch up my use of air and curious on when I should consider a Linear air piston pump a reasonable idea to possible cut down on electricity usage and to still provide air to my tanks. I have 6 tanks 3 being 10g a 20 tall a 35 and a 55 all having sponge filters. Any tips or info on the pump in this way is appreciated!
  16. Hi all, I am interested in keeping different fish than live bearers and actually have them breed. However, my water is hard like (300 ppm) and high ph 8. I’m not 100% sure, but have heard some species like panda corydoras and a lot of fish that prefer lower ph will live in hard water with high ph, but if they ever do spawn the eggs will be no good. And as I have researched a lot of fish I want to keep like a Apistogramma and rams prefer neutral to softer water. So my solution or potential would be to get a RODI system and mix with my water so that I could have a ton of success with other fish. Is this simply the most efficient route to go about my water? Or am I overlooking something simple.
