  1. How have you been enjoying nature recently? Whether it’s the nature you keep and maintain in your home, or somewhere you explored, if it has brought you joy feel free to share! I have mostly been working outside the store since returning to work. The other day I got to enjoy a few moments of this visiting dragonfly between customers.
  2. We have non aquatic folk worrying that sinister death is attacking our beaches right now.... what they don't realize is it's a crab molt! I guess it would be shocking to see that many little bodies washed up in the tide. https://uclueletaquarium.org/the-crabs-arent-dead/?fbclid=IwAR0xFSAQ1ekqbOIz3R5pLZGZw4rm4U4AB8JEOyXX5_3UXQ50oIblifpPDZU
  3. I'm looking for a cool gift for a young girl, 10 years old, who is pretty into nature. She has a 55-gallon tank in her fish with fish she caught herself, a paludarium with a gecko, and a few tanks with turtles. She loves to collect insects. I was thinking maybe a cool, information book...I don't know. Looking to spend $10-20 (there are a lot of kids to buy for...but she's the only one who is super into nature, like I am). Any suggestions from the crowd?
  4. When @Cory, termed the phrase 'NERM' awhile back, it may have been out of his subconscious genius. I consider myself, a self-proclaimed 'NERM' & have drawn a few conclusions, of which, some even may be valid. Why do people keep aquariums? IMO, It's an extension of nature into their homes for enjoyment & furthering life itself. If you look at the 'term' 'NERM'; is it just a word or even more; perhaps an acronym. For everyone, the word, term, phrase, acronym or # 'NERM' may indeed mean something very different and often times very personal to each individual, in their relationship with the hobby. For me: I classify the N.E.R.M. as an acronym, using each beginning letter, as follows: N.E.R.M. Natural Environment Respective Mentality Be a good Aquarist, be a NERM, today.
  5. Full disclosure: I am no expert at fish keeping and always pushing myself to learn from my tanks and others to improve myself and my abilities with aquariums. I have had some success in 35 years in the hobby first with my dad then as solo over the past 5 years or so but like us all have learned when things went wrong and when things went perfect. Recently I have been wondered if parameters of native habitats were actually a deal breaker for most fish to reproduce or if stable conditions generally within the ballpark of their natural habitat along with some fluctuation to trigger spawning are more important. Nature finding a way seems to occur for me more often than not. Do you find that there any parameters which when different from the natural environment of a species is a deal breaker to getting a species to spawn successfully? More importantly are those conditions more detrimental to being able to raise fry to adulthood? I have had plenty of learning experiences over the years when things did not work out but have also managed to set the stage right for a few species to reproduce with my setups over the years: Goodeids: Characodon lateralis, and Zoogoneticus tequila; Other livebearers: platies, swordtails, and guppies; Mouthbrooders : Strawberry betta, betta macrostoma ( was awesome to learn from but fry did not survive due to an equipment issue), and golden mbuna (my first non livebearer way back when); Miscellaneous unintentional success : panda corydoras, flag fish (guarded eggs like sunfish), and Khuli loach Current projects: Gold Stripe Panaque (3yr old colony); Hairy Puffer (1.5 year old group); Dwarf Pike Regani (1.5 year old pair from group); Dwarf Chain Loach (1 year old group)
