About Me

  1. Heyo, I ordered these Julii Corydoras but the website doesn't say if they're true or false Juliis. I personally can not tell from these pictures, can anyone identify them?
  2. Pop quiz! What are these brown tendrils? Not really a quiz because I don’t know the answer. 😊 I’m having trouble finding information. My searches keep turning up brown algae but the pictures I see don’t really match. What do you think? 🤔 Thank you!
  3. Hi all! These pics are posted from Reddit (with the owners permission). This person got this little puffer with some pea puffers but they don't think it's the same as the others and noone seems to know what it is. Anyone know? I think it's currently the same size as the pea puffers but otherwise looks very different.
  4. About six weeks past, I was at my LFS and picked up an orange Bristlenose Pleco and six of what were labeled as Candy Cane Tetras. All the fish have been doing great, and I am really loving the tetras, especially with how vivid they are and the fact they get along with everyone else in my tank. They have managed to gain a little in size too, and seem to be very happy. Since I got six and enjoyed them so much, I was thinking of getting some more to give them a little larger school. These guys school a lot more then my Black Neon and Lemon Tetras. Here is my issue. I was looking around and noticed that these could actually be Rosy Tetras. The online resources are a little confusing about this, so I took some pictures and figured some of the knowledgeable people here would know what these guys actually are. I tried to get as bets pictures as I could, but they do tend to like to dart around. Also a couple of shots have some of the tank Platys, but I do know what they are at least. 🙂
  5. Hello! I'm having the hardest time trying to find out what kind of longfin bristlenose pleco this is. Any help is much appreciated! Also if you have any tips on identifying fish please leave them below! Thanks! -Scott L.
  6. Hi everyone, I’ve found a lot of helpful information on this forum and I’m looking for some guidance. I left town for about a week and came back to find these on our aquarium wall by the top of the water. I tried to find some kind of identification for these tiny brown specks in our tank, but the closest I could find looked like a parasite so I’m concerned. We have some copepods in our tank, but these do not seem to move. Some background of our tank: 5 gallon Ph: 8.0 Ammonia: 0 ppm Nirtrite: 0 ppm Nitrate: 5 ppm Filtered (no chemical) Heated to approximately 79 F 1 Betta fish 1 Nerite snail Weekly water test (with API Freshwater kit) & change We’d really appreciate any help or advice you have as to what they are and how we can get rid of these if we need to!
  7. Can anyone help me ID the plants in my tank? I'm terribly bad at buying and trading plants without much attention to their names. Now that I'm thinking of seriously aquascaping this tank, I feel that it would really benefit me to know this stuff! I will put pictures of what I have here!
  8. If you think you know what type of worms these are please let us know. I posted a short youtube video at the bottom of this post. I netted some floating plants out of one of my tanks tonight and then set it over a container so that it didnt drip all over my desk. Later when i went to dump the net out i realized the net had strained all of these worms out of the floating plants ans down into the container seeking water. I have no idea what type of worms these are. Apparently they were living in the roots of the floating plants i would assume eating the detritus that is caught there. Anyway they are pretty interesting and actively seek out bits of floating plants when i added them to the container. Im wondering if i should add them back into my tank or not. They seem like they would be a great live food source for small fish. Let me know what you think i should do. Aquarium Mystery Worms Video - Youtube
  9. I ordered some neocaridina shrimp and plants from someone and got some hitchhiker snails which I was excited about. When I saw two of them today they had little white strings waving from their shells. Does anyone know what they are or if I need to do anything about them? Thanks, Brad
  10. These are up for adoption at my local chain pet store. They were labeled as creamsicle cichlids. Would love help identifying them!
  11. Hello again, I asked about some critters I took photos and videos of the other day. I got very useful help (thank you so much). Well I bought a microscope and took some more video because while I’m not concerned about the copepods we found, I have also discovered some type of worm. I’ve tried doing some research… I do not think it’s a detritus worm because it hangs out on the glass. I’m obviously most anxious about it being planaria. Based on this video I took my hypothesis is: Rhabdocoela worms but I’d like to rule out planaria because I’m paranoid about my future shrimps. Thank you for taking the time to read and view, it means a lot!
  12. Can anyone identify my hillstream loach? Was sold to me as a sewellia lineolata but pretty sure it's not. I was thinking maybe gastromyzon ocellatus? Not sure though, any help would be appreciated! Hope everyone's having a nice day!
  13. Ok so I bought this stem plant from my local aquarium store and the owner keeps calling it a spider plant. But when I try to research more about it online it doesn’t come up. Can someone help me? It doesn’t have roots and can grow just floating in the water, it’s very hard to kill.
  14. We got our new 10 gallon set up, with eco-complete, root tabs, an established sponge filter, etc. We ended up getting this mixed multi-pack of plants really cheap, but I have NO idea what they are. I could tell that the one we glued to the rock was annubias of some sort, and I think there's a sword in there but we are not good at identifying these! We could also use some advice on a good carpeting plant for this setup. We went with mopani for our wood choice. As a side note, the bulbs that came with the hood are dingy and weak, got some decent LED bulbs on the way.
  15. Mostly convinced based on behavior and faint panda pattern this is my first panda loach fry. Which for qualifies in the "that is nuts" category for me if it proves out. Only other fish in that rack system of tanks are a limia p group, a variatus platy group, khuli loaches, and an cousin to barbatus group growing out. There were flagfish about 3 weeks ago in the sump along with hundreds of snails but i recall flagfish fry having a little different mouth structure and orientation was more of an overbite. Anyone think this definately is or is not a panda loach?
  16. There was a video on Instagram where people were burying bycatch pufferfish so that animals wouldn't eat them and die. Does anybody recognize the species? I have a feeling it's saltwater, I couldn't find anything close on google. Thanks!
  17. So I went collecting tonight at the Creek right down from the house, Southern Illinois about 1:00 a.m. supposed to get a heavy rain at about 6:00 am, but can anyone tell me what this fish is I have looked and I just can't find what it is, I also collected wild Ram's horns and some mosquito fish with it , I want to say it's some kind of algae eater but idk
  18. There is something on my cory's dorsal fin. Is this an injury that will heal by itself or is this something else that I have to treat. Thanks Parameters: Nitrate: Around 20ppm Nitrite: 0 GH:300ppm Chlorine: 0 KH:80ppm pH: 6.8
  19. Hello! I'm new to honey gouramis, and they are challenging me. Lol! I posted a few days ago about my stressed honey. I ended up getting it a friend which helped for a few days and then it went back to pacing. So, I moved him and his friend to a different tank and they seem to be happier (so far) I then bought another gourami for my 15 gallon fluval flex. It settled in great so a couple of days later I brought home a friend for him. When I put the second one in the tank, the first gourami went to full breeding dress. The newest gourami is supposed to be a male, but he hasn't coloured up yet. They've been together for 24 hours. I haven't seen any fight or chasing. Do you think the newest addition is just stressed still, or is my male actually a female?
  20. Found this guy this morning in my Endler tank. Small looking worm, with some hairs on its body. Yellowish green in color. Any ideas what it is where this came from? Tank has rotala indica, 30 endler babies, and one BN pleco. Included a few pics under the microscope.
  21. Can anyone identify this piece of driftwood I have?
  22. Okay y'all what did I collect, Southern Illinois, backyard Creek, water is about 50ish 1 day after rain at 3am, there's an American bullfrog and a southern green frog living in the deepest part of the creek along with wild minnows and pest snails where these were collected, what are they, cuz I have an idea what they are but I'm not for sure
  23. I got a couple of ghost shrimp from petsmart recently and there is one that doesn't look like the rest. It's been doing fine with the rest. I just wanna if it is a ghost shrimp or not. Thx!
  24. This is my first apisto. he was sold to me as a cacatuoides double red male from an LFS, unsure of the age but he's about 2 inches long total and I've had him a week. I believe he is indeed a male because of the longer spikes at the front of his dorsal fin, but I'd like to know what others think. I'm also wondering is he really a double red? He has that one spot on his tail but otherwise he seems to be starting to color up orange. Could he be an orange flash? Or is he just still getting his coloring? If he is a male double red, when should I expect to see more color? Currently he's alone in quarantine
