  1. To keep nitrogen cycle under control with fish that eat plants what can I use that will look good in the fish room and not harm animals? I love orchids and pathos is dangerous for animals. What kind of Vine could I grow around my stand to make the room beautiful? Help me plan my new fish room.
  2. So my family got two cats, anyone with experience? If so, can you post some advice? Their names are Starpuff (female) and Smokey (male) one tuxedo (Starpuff) and one black cat (Smokey).
  3. Hi there, I have a betta named Travis. Last night I noticed one of my cats was carrying something in his mouth. It was rather large for something he might find in the house and he was acting like he had a very prized catch. Eventually he stopped and dropped Travis. I picked him up and immediately got him back into his tank. He was very lethargic, fins ripped, and he was having issues maintaining upright. He eventually started sinking upside down and to my horror his only tank mate (kuhli loach) started attacking him. I imagine this was just instinct to take advantage of a dying fish. I removed Travis and placed in in a specimen container while I setup a hospital aquarium with a filter from one of my other tanks. I added some aquarium salt and Seachem Stress Guard. This was about 9 last night. 12 hours later he is still alive. He’s able to maintain position upright, but he’s clearly still recovering from this traumatic experience. In addition to the salt and stress guard, should I treat him with an antibiotic? Cat’s mouths are extremely dirty. It doesn’t look like Travis suffered any puncture wounds, but I imagine the stress could make him susceptible to a bacterial infection. I have the med trio and Seachem Metroplex and Kanaplex at my disposal. I also have some Tetra LifeGuard. I don’t want the treatment to cause additional stress. Any suggestions? I don’t know if Travis jumped out and the cat found him, in which case the cat probably saved his life by bringing it to my attention, or the cat fished him out in an attempted murder. Travis is known to flare at any cat onlookers, further enticing the cat. Thanks for reading. I greatly appreciate any help you can provide. Best, Jonathan (Travis is already a bit compromised with a growth under one of his eyes)
  4. That a 10 gallon tank is perfect for one full grown male tuxedo cat. I would not recommend a pair in there though...
  5. So basically my question is if I have a small colony of multis would I need to worry about upside down catfish eating all the fry. Upside down cats being synodontis nigriventris I believe. I know it could be an issue with other synodontis but to my understanding these guys seem less of an issue?
  6. planning on getting our first big tank. it will be the wifes "office desk tank" at 55 gallons. trying to plan everything out so it goes smothly. the original plan was to get the aqueon delux hood and getting the aditional light to put in each hood. would that be enough light in a 55 for our base plant selection of large anubias, apintegen, filagree, and wysteria? also any ideas for stocking would be nice, the wife wants the focus of this tank to be mainly a guppy tank, but we would like other fish as well. the reason for the hoods its it must be cat proof so our cats dont go swimming
  7. I got inspired last night to make a fish tank lid strong enough for my cat to stand on with a built-in bubble window kind of like this: That way the window would be partially under the water surface so she could see the fish better. The thing is, she doesn’t really watch the fish right now. She loves to drink their water, but doesn’t seem that interested in the swimming things. She only has one viewing angle right now and that’s the short end of the 55 gallon, so it’s not the best, but she has literally shown no interest. So would I be wasting my energy? (Probably...) Do your cats like to watch fish, and do you think they’d use something like this?
  8. Good Morning I just finished treating my Betta for water shock, and she was recovering fine. Water parameters have been perfect for two days. I was breathing a sigh of relief. Now, before I noticed, my cat was on the table next to the aquarium with her head in the bowl. My fish must've been spooked, because now she isn't moving. My cat has never done this before. Is there anything I can do? A treatment?
  9. We all love nature here enough to bring it into our homes. What other non- fishy pets do we all have? I have a cat,3 turtles, 7 salamanders, 3 rats, approximately 100 land snails,15 snakes right now but I breed them so at my high point in the year I will I have over 100 snakes, And a dog
  10. the new kitten enjoys watching the goldfish, do your pets like watching your fish? one of my dogs loves to chase them around when he can (terrier problems 😂). not an issue when the tank is up high but he would really get a workout in when i had tanks on racks and eye-level to him. share your pets watching your fish photos and videos! id love to see your cute furballs.
  11. Over on YouTube, @KGTropicals asked the poll question, how do you dispose of dead fish? The comment section was sometimes informative, sometimes absolutely hilarious. I wanted to pose the same question here. How do you dispose of fish when they go to the million gallon aquarium in the sky?
