  1. Purple dumbo mosaics for the win!! Absolutely gorgeous!
  2. He loves it! I gave my goldfish some watermelon rind yesterday and they went nuts!
  3. I am on my first tank ever and never considered a betta. I just thought fish in a cup that never moves! But now I see all these wonderful fish and I am starting to think of them as a showpiece fish. I see lots of people have them in community tanks, and then I hear how they are killers. I have 6 danios, 3 amano shrimp and 4 nerite snails and a hill stream loachthat are super active in a 29g. Not sure if a betta would work in there. Congratulations on yours! He is soooo beautiful. And I have heard that they have great personalities too.
  4. Thanks for starting this forum Cory! I live in Central California and caught the fish bug this summer when I started an outdoor waterfall pond. Then I thought it needed some goldfish. Then I had a crash course in fish in cycling. I didn't lose one fish!! But I did tons of water changes and learned a bunch. Now I have a beautiful, stable (50g) pond. I thought I needed a hospital tank just in case, so I picked up a 29g at a yard sale and started cycling that one without fish. Then I Found the co op group on fb, saw a bunch of videos Cory did and decided that I should have plants. That tank cycled in just 3 weeks, thanks to the knowledge I got from the awesome videos. I find it thrilling to see that beautiful blue in the nitrite tube and yellow in the ammonia tube. When I saw it was stable for another week I went to LFS to get 6 Danios. I got those, and the guy suggested I get a hill stream loach. I took it home knowing nothing about the fish, which is not my usual M.O. for anything I do. I panicked when I started reading about their natural environment and how I needed to set up a special tank for it. I asked the support group for advice. Everyone was so helpful, and I am pretty sure this little guy is happy now and I will be able to keep him! So I watched the video Cory did, and a couple others and took advice from several people. I added 2 air stones, more smooth rocks, a small slab of blue stone so he would have more places to get out of the way of the Danios gang LOL! Bought some Hikari algae wafers and put this cucumber in. He loves both and really chowed down. He keeps coming back to the cucumber. I love this fish! It may not be his perfect set up, but better than the bare tank at the LFS. I will do the best I can for him. THANKS AGAIN TO THOSE WHO SHARED THEIR EXPERIENCES. I look forward to pictures and lots of fish stories on this forum.
