About Me

  1. Hey everyone, just got back into the fish tank hobby after a few years, I used to have a 37gal saltwater tank that my father helped me run when I was about 12 and now I'm getting back into the hobby by myself. I'm an avid fisherman so I usually can collect wild samples for my tank and after just moving down to Florida I have access to so many new and cool species. Right now I've a 20 gallon long tank and a 10 gallon tank in my kitchen. Just wanted to share my tank and see everyone's opinions, this is the first tank I've actually put plants and wood in a fish tank and I think it turned out quite well.
  2. Found MORE Xenotoca Doadrioi fry this evening. In the spirit of Mr. Ray, “Oooo!!! Gather ‘round explorers! Look at the umbilical-cord-like trophotaenia on these Goodeids!!!”
  3. Well I have been working for a few minutes to try and figure out how to upload a video here and then just gave up and copy and pasted the URL and that did it! Oh well.... Anyway, here is my aquarium today! After starting 4 months ago, very poorly, my aquarium has come along quite nicely. I have Guppies, Julie Catfish, Neon Tetras, Ember Tetras, Snails, 1 cherry Shrimp, Platty's, A Common Pleco, lots of plants, and everyone seems to be doing ok. I can't believe where I started with all fake plants to where I am now. We really enjoy our tanks and appreciate all the help I have gotten.
  4. Finally got around to taking some pictures and videos of my aquarium to share with others instead of enjoying it all to myself. Thought this would be a good one to upload. Hope you guys enjoy.
  5. I have 2 aqua clear 110s on my 75g and im gonna stock the tank with 10 juvenile saulosi. I know i have enough filtration but i think its gonna be way too much flow. Should i just use 1 filter to slow the flow down?
  6. Just wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a semi-affordable underwater camera? I currently have a slightly old Sony Action Cam and it has very blurry picture underwater. (It's sort of like a GoPro.) I haven't been able to figure out a way to repair it and as far as I can tell it is a common problem with this camera model. I was thinking of making some YouTube videos and these grainy images are not gonna cut it even for a non-money making video. Any recommendations? You can see an example here, the beginning before it is submerged it is fairly clear. Then underwater it is all grainy. 😞 I tried strapping a flashlight on it too in case it was too dark and saw the same thing. FYI, the fish are gold medaka ricefish, a couple of guppies, and some cherry shrimp. It was such good video!... except its blurry. Haha
  7. Hi everyone~ I am hoping that this is almost over. As most of you know my trial and tribulation of the introduction (without quarantine) of 5 guppies last Saturday. I did identify and am treating the worms. I believe (hope and pray) that this is the las one going to die from this horrible incident. My resident fish have all done very well during the treatment (my peppered cory cat gave me a scare.. but he bounced back better than ever). But this little dude, has been on a steady decline, and I actually was surprised to see him alive (not to active). However, he has been in this spot.. for hours.. very short of breath.. I tried to see if he would just lie on the rocks..nope.. we went back to this exact spot and stays upside down. What should I do? What are my options? I am doubtful he will survive but I don't want him to suffer either.
  8. Hello everyone. I have a 24 gallon aquarium. I currently have 4 honey gouramis, 4 julii corydoras, 2 guppies, 1 sword tail, 1 albino bristlenose pleco, and approx 15 shrimp. I don’t see any aggression, the odd time I see the gourami chase another gourami but they seem to alternate who does the chasing. Never any biting or nipping even during feeding time. Here is a photo of the tank in hopes it helps. Am I overstocked? Understocked? Neutral?
  9. Quick, hopefully easy question . . . . This is my first foray into vinegar eels (up till now, I've been a microworm guy!) so I need some advice. When you harvest them by putting water in the neck of the bottle and then siphoning the eels out, how long do you let that water sit and collect eels? Few minutes? Few hours? Overnight?
  10. For those of us who have quite a few different foods and want to offer a variety to provide a balanced diet — How do you decide what to feed and when? Do you have a set schedule? Do you wing it? I currently am feeding: frozen bloodworms, frozen brine shrimp, xtreme krill flake, xtreme nano pellets, xtreme sinking wafers, repashy soilent green, and just ordered a setup to feed live baby brine shrimp I try to do one “dry” food (flake or pellets) and one “fresh” food (frozen, live, or repashy) feeding per day for most of my tanks. I love the idea of a master feeding schedule to go off of, though!
  11. So, pulled half a dozen Emerald Killifish eggs from a mop awhile ago. Put a Cherry Shrimp in to ”nurse” the eggs — keep fungus down, and eat infertile eggs. It appeared only one egg hatched. Just changing out water in container... and woah! There’s two!!
  12. Hi all I've just setup a 305L Aquarium (80 us gallons) and it measures 40" wide by 2ft deep. Do we think this tank is large enough to keep clown loaches? Thanks Aaron
  13. This video may understandably bother some temperate aquarists. I refer to virtue, not environment. There are a number of wise old adages cautioning aquarists against the problems caused by overfeeding. However, when trying to get fish prepared for healthy spawning, _sometimes_ it is good to _overfeed_ as long as you compensate by _over cleaning_. Feed more? Water change more. So, here's a video sort of "journaling" a day in the life of our Rainbow Shiners. Bear in mind that there is a shy pair of Rainbow Darters in this aquarium as well that need the presence of uneaten frozen food (and live food when we feed that) available on the substrate. Shiners are "drift feeders" so once things settle down low, they do not dig for it like a cichlid might. These males are really coloring up!
  14. Having issues with my Amazon Swords and I'm not sure with it missing, take a look.
  15. Hi ~ On Saturday (Feb 6th) I added 5 new guppies to my 20 gallon high aquarium. my water parameters are very stable. I do not have a quarantine tank and don't really have the space to even have one at this point, as I am new to the hobby. I acclimated them to the tank (float 15 min, added 1/3 cup of my tank water every 15 minutes x3). netted them out, and into the tank with my 1 existing guppy, 2 cory cats, 1 mystery snail, and Ramshorn snail. Note, that I did an aquarium clean, water change, and added some Fritz Zyme to my tank and filter, due to adding more new fish. Checked my parameters PRIOR to the aquarium clean. 1) checked chemistry prior to tank clean. again prior to adding new fish to tank, again 5 hours post new arrivals. and have been checking my chemistry twice daily. I observed them carefully, and they kinda zipped around, and my existing guppy was a bit territorial, but began to calm down a bit. I kept the lights off for 2 hours while everyone was adjusting. there was a bit of bulling initially that was short lived, and was only with the guppies. Sunday afternoon, 1 guppy was not looking well. looks to be gasping, staying at the top, but occasionally going to the bottom or swim side to side. But he just does not look that great. he won't eat much either. I am not sure if he just is not transitioning well due to stress, if he was maybe picked on more than the others (which is why he stays mostly to himself) of if he is sick.. Then I saw something dangling .. but was not 100% sure if it was a parasite or not. All the others are eating, swimming etc. just fine. Here are my parameters PH 7.3, Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrates 0 KH 110, GH 120, Chlorine 0 Water/Aquarium temp 78.9 Should I treat him/all of them? I won't have a choice till I get some kind of system set up. I am so frustrated, because I know I need to get a quarantine system set up. I have clear bin medications, etc., but I just don't have all the space to keep this stuff set up for like 3 weeks... ugh.. and I don't know how long in advance I have to set up a quarantine tank before knowing if I will get fish or not.. sometimes, I see nice fish,,, sometimes I don't... so do I set it up in "anticipation" of getting fish, and take it all apart when I don't? I feel frustrated, and angry with myself.. because it seems when I think everything is fine.. its just not.
  16. If you had to choose one schooling/shoaling fish for a 15 gallon tank, regardless of price, what would you choose? There are just so many options. I am going to add a school of 8 to my tank with sparkling gourami's, but I wanted everyone's opinions first. What have been your favorites??? Thanks everyone!
  17. I stumbled on this fella while searching for ideas on building a fish “gallery” ... holy cow this is incredible! Like an underground laboratory. The plumbing and cable management is a work of art, and applicable to fresh water.
  18. Hey, been watching the channel for a couple months. Kept fish 10+years ago, freshwater livebearers mostly in a 55. Have kids now and im getting my 4 year old into it. We got him for xmas a 29 gal setup, and just a few days ago got him some harly rasbors, panda mollies, platies and some albino corys. The water is cloudy after introduction and idk why. Not over feeding as best i can tell. Cycled the tank for a day prior to introducing fish. Will it clear up or should i do something? Not trying to panic, but at the same time i dont want him to be discouraged
  19. Hello C.A.R.E. Givers, So I was watching Michael's Fish Room and he mentioned freezing something called Repashy in a silicone ice cube tray. Have any of you use this with guppies? I was thinking of ordering Repashy Soilent Green and this tray. <Insert Soylent Green joke here> Is this a good Repashy for my guppies? If there is something better, I would love suggestions. Right now I'm feeding them Hikari Tropical Fancy Guppy Fish Food and some Aqueon Fish flake occasionally (mostly for a change of pace). I have a poorly stocked Petsmart near me but no local shops, so I've been using Amazon. I hope posting these links are ok, if not I'd be happy to remove them, they aren't affiliate or anything. Also, if there is a better online vendor, someone supportive of the hobby, please let me know and I'll order from them happily. Also is this Repashy thing overkill for someone like me who is still very much a novice? I've read some about hatching brine shrimp, but I was a little intimidated, and I don't think I have the population (~10 babies and another ~10 adults) yet to warrant it. Thank you for reading this! I hope you all have a good week!
  20. What does everyone use for a quarantine tank? Am I just supposed to get a separate aquarium and leave it running when no fish are in it? We just got some guppies and put them in our tank and someone suggested we should put them in a quarantine tank first. Not sure how to go about it.
  21. I am setting up two new planted community tanks, which I want to have Corys included.. Can I use Seachem Flourite as my substrate or is it to rough for the Corys? If the standard Flourite is too rough, can I use Flourite Sand ? thanks john
  22. Hi everybody! I have seen some lemon blue eyed bristlenose pleco babies and was considering to get them. The person selling them was going to sell 13 of them. I currently have two 20 gallon tanks and one 10 gallon tank. Would I be able to separate them around in those tanks? Also, what are your setups for them? I want to know how you guys breed and keep them. Would any other tank mates be suitable to keep with them if I'm trying to breed them? What should I feed them to get them to be happy and growing? Sorry for the many questions, but if you have any advice at all, I'd appreciate it. Thank you!
  23. Several months ago, we asked our LFS to order 4x female dwarf Gourami. Some fish keepers have never seen females, since most all that sells seem to be the brightly colored males. We’ve been giving them the royal treatment... lots of live food and frozen entree’s. They’re in a very wild, well-seasoned tank. Lots of duckweed, wisteria, pothos roots, etc. Then just a week or two ago, we popped in a divider, and brought home a colorful male. He’s now gearing up, getting used to our water, eating lots of healthy foods. The plan is to remove 3x females, and then move the male across the divider. Short video below.
  24. Does anyone here keep any of these? They look amazing.
  25. So I made my first impulse fish purchase today 😳 nothing crazy, just 3 mollies. (edit: they're poecilia sphenops mollies for reference) The only problem is that I was thinking of them going well with my endlers, but forgot to check to see if they'd eat adult neocaridina shrimp - turns out, yes they absolutely will. 😕 The mollies are currently quarantined by themselves in a 10 gallon. The plan before was to move my prettiest shrimp into the 10 gallon for breeding, and keep some culls and skittles in my community tank where they currently live so I wouldn't care if some cull babies got eaten. I like having the shrimp as a cleanup crew and seeing how they interact in the community tank, but I don't want any adults to get eaten. Current setup is a 20 gallon long community tank. Heavily planted (like actually, about 70%+ is planted). Over filtered with two sponge filters on different air pumps that are both for 40-50 gallons. Fish: 7 kuhli loaches, 6 endlers, 8 juvenile celestial pearl danios, 1 mystery snail, 1 nerite snail, and ~20 neocaridina shrimp. No one's bothered the shrimp so far and they're comfortable enough to be out and about most of the time. 10 gallon is medium planted, deep substrate, sponge filter, just the 3 mollies in there right now. My father-in-law is giving me a 100 gallon tank soon, but it'll be a hot minute before that's all set up and ready to go. What would you do? I'm thinking of my options as: 1 - Move all the shrimp into the 10 gallon and the mollies into the 20 (after mollies are done in quarantine), potentially put a divider in the tank so I can have part of the tank where I'm selectively breeding and part of the tank for culls/skittles. 2 - Keep the mollies in the 10 gallon, potentially moving them to the 100 gallon when it's ready. Get another 10 gallon or a 5 gallon for shrimp breeding and go with the original plan of culls & skittles in the 20. 3 - Move the mollies to the 20, move my breeding shrimp to the 10, and get another 10 or a 5 for culls & skittles. Shrimp tank will also likely be a grow out tank for fry.
