About Me

  1. I attached a photo, but I just noticed the website now says "Colin" under each fertilizer. Is there some collaboration with Colin at NiloCG to make the fertilizers?
  2. I multitask while watching the livestream. I also hangout on the forum. If anyone one is up for it, we can talk about the livestream amongst ourselves (which starts in a little less than 20 minutes).
  3. Hello, Just trying to have a little fun.. About to put in an order. I was wondering what your average online order. For me: 1. Sticker of Choice- Or wife's 2. One Plant for a Tank 3. Food 4. Fertilize 5. Random ( Algae Scrubber, Sponge Filter) Thank you and Enjoy your day, Eric

  5. Hey Everyone! I am excited for our next Aquarium Co-Op Club event with our guest speaker, Dr. Eric Thomas. Eric is an associate professor of biology, and co-chair and director of graduate studies for the biological sciences department at University of Pacific. Part of Eric's studies include studying self-poisoning in Corydoras catfish. The event will be live for members of the Aquarium Co-Op YouTube channel, and will also be available as a playback video (also for members only). If you would like to learn how to become a member so that you may view this talk as well as others in the coming months, click here: https://www.aquariumcoop.com/pages/membership

  7. Hey C.A.R.E. Forum friends! Posting this, first of all, to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone here for being part of this forum! So many great posts and conversations so far from everyone and we're so happy to have you all here. Secondly, we will be regularly rewarding thoughtful posters and contributors with a care package (hence the name, get it?) of fun and useful stuff from Aquarium Co-Op. The first care package was sent to the following forum members as they were top contributors thus far in the forum: @Daniel @Bill Smith @MickS77 Congratulations to each of you! Other members, if you haven't yet checked out their content, please do!! In the future, we will be choosing winners based on other metrics as well, not simply number of posts - thoughtful and informative posts which will benefit the greater 🐟 community to name an example of what I'll be looking out for. Can't wait to see more great topics and conversations in the coming weeks. Feel free to reach out to me any time. - Lizzie
  8. It's not everyday that I get to build something in the warehouse, but when we needed to run an airline system to get circulation going to our newest plant tanks I was happy to play builder for a day. 1" PVC Ziss Never Clog Airstones Aquarium Co-Op Black Airline Tubing Aquarium Co-Op threaded individual air line valves and 2 Medo LA-45 linear piston air pumps. Each tank has 3 Ziss airstones to bring in a ton of air and move around a lot of water. My 2 tips will be 1) make your holes along the printed text to keep them aligned, and 2) use the drills chuck to screw in the air valves to save your fingers a lot of pain. 🙂
  9. So I've been cycling a 75 gallon with a seeded sponge, (used ammonia to 4ppm during the final week of the sponge seeding in my established tank (6 weeks total). and have been using an API test kit for ammonia tests, and everything is going well. I've been using the test strips to test nitrite/nitrate, because its just easier than the liquid tests. Today I decided to try the liquid tests to compare, and I ran into a snag with the nitrite. The API test is showing 0 nitrite and 10 nitrate. The test strips are showing max level of nitrite and around 20ppm nitrate. I have a second test kit, and tried the same tests, and got the same results. One kit expires on 1/2025 and the other is 3/2024, and I did shake the ever living crap out of the bottles. I then tried the strip in my established aquarium and it showed 0 nitrite/trate. This leads me to believe that somehow both bottles of the API kits are bad? Does anyone have any other possible idea why I would come across this issue? Thanks
  10. Well… not really hacks but maybe alternate uses? Im sure some of you have done similar things but I thought these were worth sharing even tho they are very simple because theyve worked out for me. If you have a tip or just an unconventional use for a product thats working for you feel free to share here. Like many of you i keep floating plants and they can really make feeding a pain. I picked up one of these Coop Worm Feeder Cones for $2.99 and found that if you pop the cone out it makes the perfect plant free feeding ring. You could make a floating ring for pretty cheap but this one stays in place thanks to the suction cup and is hardly noticeable. As an added bonus it doubles as an actual worm feeder cone. The second tip is you can turn your coop EZ Planter into a Kuhli Loach Motel or Fry hideout by just adding some holes. Because theyre hollow you can easily drill holes all around and give tiny critters or in my case my kuhli loaches more access. My kuhlis love the planter and i get to watch them popping in and out of the planter holes all day.
  11. Hello everyone, Unfortunately we don't ship live fish. Our stock lists are for our retail store customers. They are posted once when the shipment comes in and not updated after that. If you're looking to purchase live fish and live outside of Washington state, you can get more information from our web page on sources to buy fish. https://www.aquariumcoop.com/pages/live-fish
  12. Who else agrees that every state needs an Aquarium Co-op store? I know I sure do💯😁
  13. Let's kick off my fish room journal with an entry/update on my Blue Gularis breeding project for the Coop. What I enjoy most about operating a fish room focused on breeding is that there will be people in the store that see my fish, get excited, and want to take them home. Call it silly, but it's just something that really drives me, knowing that someone is going to enjoy my fish and bring them happiness. So, that being said, I asked @Cory what fish I should work with to make available in our retail store. His response was the Blue Gularis. I have kept Gardneri in the past and had great success breeding them, but the Blue Gularis is known to be more difficult. Well, I am up for the challenge. I started off by sourcing 30 eggs from Aquabid for the Blue Gularis "Loe" variety. The eggs arrived with instructions to sit on them for 7-8 weeks from the date of collection, which was about 1 week prior if I recall collectly. True to my self, I let my impatience win out and tried to hatch 10 eggs about 3 weeks in. Let's just say you should follow the seller's advice. 😆 From that botched attempt I wanted the remaining 4 weeks to hatch the rest. After putting the eggs in a shallow tupperware it took about 48 hours for the first fry to hatch. I think I got maybe 2 more natural hatches. I then used the vial pressurization method to force hatch the remaining eggs - picked this up from Gary Lange. The remaining eggs went in a vial with a little bit of water. Put the vial in the bottom of a 40 gallon breeder and loosened the lid to allow water pressure to enter the vial. From that, I had one more egg hatch. With several more eggs unhatched I decided to try the other method Gary talked about and that is to leave thee vial in your pocket and simply walk around. Sure enough this did the trick and all remaining eggs hatched. I raised the fry on BBS (via Ziss Brine Shrimp Hatcher) for the next several months. Currently the Blue Gularis are spread across several tanks in the fish room with only one tank having multiple occupants, 1 male and 3 females. I will probably spread these out too. The attached image is a shot from today (7/22/2020) of one of my males. Even if I don't have success breeding on my own I feel accomplished getting them to this point. Their looks certainly are worth it alone.

  15. @Robert or @Cory, wanted to check if you plan to be open regular hours Memorial day, Monday. Also, since I figure this question will recur in various forms I have pinned it. The sales site says your hours are (for the record):Monday - Friday: 11am - 7pmSaturday and Sunday: 10am - 7pm Thanks!
  16. Watching a few videos on YouTube and heard Cory mention the club. Can someone fill me in as I'm out of the loop. I did hear Zenzo is heading this up and lots of speakers lined up, sounds awesome!

  18. The last 4 or 5 orders I’ve placed I have had to place as a guest checkout. Have tried for a couple months to reset my online password for the store and never get an email to reset. Can someone help me out please?? 🙏🏻 Thx!
  19. Hey everyone! i try to stay up to date on the news and announcements from Cory and the team. I watched the video where he was talking about the new nets coming in. Has he said anything more about them? Are they OOS and selling already? I’m transporting more fish and moving tanks back and forth. Better nets would be great right about now. thanks everyone!
  20. I think I recall Cory mentioning this at some point, that there would be a schedule of aquarium events so that members could see what events are upcoming. Events such as Aqua shella, Live-bears association etc. Does anyone have a list and am I remembering correctly about what Cory said. I have never gone to an event before and would love to. I know Cory & Zenzo have an event calendar specific for members ,but I referring to world wide events.
  21. I recently got to experience the Coop's retail store. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. I picked up lots of goodies and even got to feed murphy clams (the crunching noise was a lot louder in person). Definitely worth the drive from California!!! My Haul New and improved tank
  22. For you local customers or anyone traveling to the shop this weekend, as you probably know by now we have a nice toasty heat wave coming in over the weekend. To make sure your visit to the shop is comfortable we will be dropping the mask mandate and having them optional if you still want to wear them. We will also be offering free popsicles while your shopping. Please stay hydrated and cool this weekend as its going to be a warm one for the books! Sincerely, Your Coop Family
  23. Fishroom standing ovation!
  24. @Cory Not sure who to tag, so I picked you. I'm logged in to the store and have tagged things for my wish list, but when I click on the wish list, none of the items show up. Thought you'd like to know that.
  25. Some of you may heard in the live stream we bought a new house so that we could get away from our current neighbors who made it impossible to film outside pond content. We also need more space to store aquarium coop products for the warehouse. We had been “looking” for like 8 months for the perfect space but our requirements were odd, needed a building for a studio, fish room and storage and away from neighbors while still being close enough to town for good internet. Here are some pics snapped quickly with my cell phone of the starting space. And 1 picture of the view from today that my wife took. None of the stuff in these pictures is ours, they were from a day when we had an inspection done. now the task of getting this space ready, then moving the fish room and selling our old house is ahead of us.
