About Me

  1. Hi all, i'm not sure what the general reaction to this will be. Inspired by the great YouTube channel "everything wrong with.." I will attempt to parody that but with the subject being cars, trucks, suvs... I originally thought that I should do a YouTube channel on this, but then I realized that "Scotty Kilmer" was already doing it. So I decided that I must share my great amount of info and my highly critical mindset with the wonderful people of this forum😁. And by the way if I say something you disagree with please PEACEFULLY ( I've seen where this goes on reddit) share your opinion. Edit I will now also be telling people everything great about a vehicle.
  2. I have an idea. If you can do a geographically accurate biotope aquarium, why can't you do a historically accurate aquarium. Sort of a historotope if I'm allowed one neologism here. At an estate sale a while back, I acquired a 1930s era aquarium with a metal frame and a slate bottom. This is not one of those stainless steel MetaFrame aquariums everyone (including me) had back in the 1960s and the 1970s. It is clearly something much older. Everything about the aquarium was in good shape when I got it, and it was watertight. Last year when I was using it to grow mosquito larva outside I forgot to bring it in when it got cold. When ice formed in the tank the expanding ice blew out one of the glass sides. So, what might the rules be for a historotope? Rules: You are only allowed to use equipment available during your chosen time period. You are only allowed to keep fishes that were available during your chosen time period. You must use historically accurate foods. You must use historically accurate plants. You must use historically accurate substrate and decorations. You must use historically accurate maintenance methods. Since I have the aquarium (once I get it repaired), my chosen time period will be the mid-1930s in the United States. My first step is to get the tank water tight again. I will post more later as this experiment progresses and your thoughts and suggestions come in.
  3. I Nerm out about very few things, fish of course but also the Olympics. Back in the day (grade 5) we were studying Greek mythology and how the Olympics started and evolved. All of this happened as the 1994 Lillehammer Winter games were being held. Our big assignment was to make a scrapbook of sorts and do a few writing pieces. We did not have a TV in our house at the time and I had only ever seen pictures. My parents let me spend more time at the neighbour's house to watch TV and also gave me the funds to get the Toronto Star (newspaper) everyday so that I had all the pictures and information. I got an A+ and was hooked. Tokyo 2020 Olympics don't officially start until tomorrow (Friday) but I have already been watching heats in rowing. Soooo, if you are still reading....all of that to say this.... What event and what one of your fish would you enter in the Olympics. I know a few of you have some high jumpers or boxers in your tanks. I would enter my Zebra Danios in the 100 meter race and my Bristlenose pleco in gymnastics, the postions he gets himself in are crazy. GO 🇨🇦 GO!
  4. We went to the Santa Fe area to see the ancestral Puebloan sites but I kept thinking about aquariums! I found some wild Cholla wood, some aquascaping wood, a VERY old fish, and discovered that New Mexicans love Easy Green as much as we do!
  5. We need a utility thread to share templates, stream-capture photos, green-screen items, meme requests, and more. Paging @TheDukeAnumber1 and others!
  6. I'm a veteran tropical fish aquariumist who's out of a job. I thought getting a job with the city would be quick and easy. The Water Treatment Dept said I was over qualified.
  7. Not sure if this is OK but I wanted to share my new tattoo. The guy in the bowl looks like me, and the betta looks like my fish Fred.
  8. Looking on Amazon and found this gem. "4 Pack Silicone Ice Cube Tray with Lids BPA Free, Easy Release Square Ice Trays for Freezer " For freezer you say? No kidding?
  9. Not sure how to get the ball rolling on this but I think it would be so much fun watching a twos match in ping pong with the aquarium guys and Cory. Cory gets priority in picking his team member. Rules are as follows: Off the skylight counts no throat punches no lion fish no FEDS and especially no airline tubing (looking at you Robs) new ideas are welcome. thanks everyone.
  10. Duckweed really does spread - into the dogs' water somehow! My tanks have lids... 😂
  11. This morning... Rainbow learned the hard way that not every Shiner can be John Carter. Fatal trip to the red planet...
  12. Can I keep this puffer in a 20 gallon? Should be enough "old timers" in here to know who this is.
  13. Cory was definitely in talks with whirlpool to get a brine shrimp container mold placed in it. Thanks Cory! 😉
  14. Share some of the funniest moments you had when keeping fish! I just looked at my 5.5 gallon betta tank and my nerite snail is trying to escape. It is out of the water, and I have no idea why it is trying to escape. Should I pluck it back in the water? Once, one of my pygmy corydoras were sleeping diagonally with its head in the water and its tail on the gravel.
  15. He has 4 pellets in his mouth and he can't close it. But he won't eat them one at a time.
  16. Think this will make my fish nervous? I’m thinking right above my tanks.
  17. Please keep entries forum-friendly! — I wanna check out the betta rack at the Co-Ap, but I gotta get back before my fish rack needs a snack! Look at that! Give yourself a pat on the back if you got a thermal pack from the Co-Ap, or a reaction from @James Black! Look at that!
  18. Me and my wife were talking about past fish tanks and how many goods we have had along the way and she asked me probably one of the best questions ever.. "If you could tell your younger self one thing fish related what would it be?" My answer take it slow. New fish and tanks are exciting but giving your full attention to a special tank or fish is 100x more rewarding. So I ask you the same question what's one piece of advice you would tell your younger self?
  19. Maybe this has been done here already, but thought it would be enjoyable to invite folks to upload "funny fish photos" and laugh at captions suggested by others. Here's one I snapped tonight... what's your caption??
