  1. @mountaintoppufferkeeperit works well with dried spirulina for some reason [imo it shouldnt, but my grandpa insists it based on just the personal preference of fish, he says it works with carinotetraodon irrubesco, never kept those but i think it would work for you] that is an interesting idea i am going to try it out rn [for real] are there any suggestions for tank mates [dither fish or something else in general] i am also going to acclimate them for freshwater a lot of ichthyologist i know agree that it will work for me as i have super hard water and even suggest that i can keep stigmatogobius sadanundio or try dadio i would like your take on this [i have really hard water but its still fresh]
  2. thank you so much everyone i will settle in for the dichotomyctere fluviatilis [it is the most similar looking fish] i have borewell water which is very hard and will be adding rocks to harden it even more my grandfathers quite old but is a professor of zoology specializing in ichthyology he said that he has kept one of those long long ago and he agrees that live and frozen foods do quite well he used to feed them earthworms mixed in with dried duckweed so i hope this one is fine with it to replicate somewhat brackish style tank i will be using a filter with 10x turnover with slightly distributed flow am using a planted tank led cause thats what i have on my hand doing a terrestrial plants aquascape with a hardscape only tank any suggestions are welcome
  3. I Got These Amazing Looking Guys While I Was Traveling Note: These Were Kept In A Pretty Bad Condition I Am Planning To Keep One For Myself And Giving The Other To A Friend They Are From A Chain Store [Will Not Mention The Name Or Place] They Have Improved Quite A Load Since I Got Them I Am Planning To Do & Scape With Houseplants And Rocks Only But Please ID Them And Suggestions Are Always Welcome But Know It, Even If Its & Mbu Puffer [thankfully its not] I Will Keep It not in the best condition but working on it using the methylene blue and green malachite [note: i have a borewell in my house so pretty hard water]
  4. well i did take those things into consideration but i have a lot of caridina Gracilirostris and caridina multidentata, amano's should be fine but the red nose are really sensitive [more sensitive than sensitive caridina's]
  5. well i am trying to get a nice scent from my aquascape by no means my tank stinks but it is in my studio so i would like to introduce a nice smell which will also get people to think that " i have never smelled a fish tank this good, i could drink its water "
