  1. So, I have seen several people post here calling folks "nerms". In my experience this is not a term one would want to be called, ever. Indeed, most would describe it as inflammatory. However, here it all seems friendly in context. So, can someone tell me what this term means in this forum as it is used here? Thanks!
  2. So I was recording a little video today and trying to say Guppies, but was talking about guppy Endler hybrids and spat out Gupplers. Found a reference to Gupplers back in 2013 and I'm sure it was said long before then. Of course we know where the term Nerm came from, as well as Techmologies. But I'm wondering, if we call these Nerm tongue slips Nermisms then what are some of your favorite Nermisms?
  3. Are you a member of the aquarium co-op channel? I am! If its too expensive for you have you considered google survery awards? They pay to to answer 5 second surverys, you can then use that credit to pay off your membership.
  4. As part of our upcoming 2021 C.A.R.E. Forum Anniversary Celebration, aka NERM Day, we will be featuring forum member-authored articles! Yours truly is managing this project. The rest of our volunteer editors/coordinators are @Daniel @KaitieG @CorydorasEthan. Help us figure out what articles to post by answering a couple of questions in this poll. And get the word out! The more responses we get, the better we can feature the articles you want to see. Thank you! 😎
  5. I broke out my old Finnex Planted+ CC. I am pretty unfamiliar with lighting, although I’ve been doing some research on lighting to try and understand it better. The Finnex CC was barely used, as it was on the last aquarium I had to take down shortly after my brain and spinal surgery years ago. Being a 48” fixture, I strung it through two setups, my crayfish’s (Gandr’s) setup, and over my 20G tall I am starting over. Plant wise, they’re low to medium light plants (I’d say 3 are medium to high): Ludwigia peruensis, Ludwigia arctuata, Cryptocoryne undulatus ‘Red’, Red Tiger Lotus, Bolbitis huedelotii ‘Difformis’, Cryptocoryne petchii, Cryptocoryne balansae, Bucephalandra Kapuas Brownie Ghost, Hydrocotyle tripartita ‘Japan’, and Hygrophila pinnatifida. I’ll have Eco-Complete as a substrate, with root tabs, liquid fertilizers for them, if that’s useful knowledge to you all, if it makes an impact on lighting. I don’t have the specific percentiles decided, because I wanted to see if there were any blatant flaws from this point already. But this is what I was roughly jotting down as a lighting idea, though I’m wondering if it’s adequate, assuming I’ll get the specific percentages in order. Normal would probably represent a higher intensity lighting period, though that will likely need heavy refining. I’m wasn’t necessarily intending for a sort of weird dim siesta time frame, but I get extremely light sensitive at certain points in the day, especially from 3-5pm, any time after 8pm, and in the morning at 9-10am (depending on my symptoms, I can have all day severe light sensitivity, as I already cover most of blinds on the windows with blankets haha, but generally, those are the times I really notice it at). I was curious to see if I would be able to keep the fixture in a certain dimness, but not poorly affecting the plants. Would this work decently, or would it *likely* need adjusting, and if so, what would you all recommend? I do have red some plants, though I’d say they’re not as difficult as most red plants, so I’m sure that will also come into play on any lighting schedule. ALSO, these plants are all new, so if I should start out lower on any hypothetical high intensity lighting periods, feel free to let me know. 🙂
  6. As a new nerm, myself, I find myself saying and thinking the silliest things: My betta sometimes flares at his reflection. Is this normal? Oh no! My ghost shrimp Bartholomew died! What did I do wrong? Free duckweed? Wow! Thanks! Is a Penn-Plax 17" cannister filter enough for my 10g shrimp tank? Is a 75g enough room for 10 neon tetras? I should google ramshorn snail breeding tips.
  7. Looking for fish friends here in Northern California.
