About Me

  1. I love the world of the small, it's such a complex and beautiful part of nature happening all around us that we usually never see. So share your macro shots! Me feeding fry baby brine from a pipette.
  2. Ok everyone! I know you got them so let’s see them! Show. Off. Those. BETTAS!!! Here is mine. He is a Green Dragon. I’m quite proud of him. He is super cool.
  3. 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.
  4. It's not everyday that I get to build something in the warehouse, but when we needed to run an airline system to get circulation going to our newest plant tanks I was happy to play builder for a day. 1" PVC Ziss Never Clog Airstones Aquarium Co-Op Black Airline Tubing Aquarium Co-Op threaded individual air line valves and 2 Medo LA-45 linear piston air pumps. Each tank has 3 Ziss airstones to bring in a ton of air and move around a lot of water. My 2 tips will be 1) make your holes along the printed text to keep them aligned, and 2) use the drills chuck to screw in the air valves to save your fingers a lot of pain. 🙂
  5. I generally love shopping for fish online. I like being able to take my time, do my research, and get the exact kind of fish I want. But one thing I don't understand is why so many sellers will have shots of a fish in their hand or a bunch of fish in a net out of the water. I feel so bad for the distressed fish, and still doesn't show colors or size very well, at least in my opinion. Why do so many fish sellers use them?
  6. @Streetwise has suggested themed daily photo threads so I thought I would start it off with the top-view of the 1930s Historically Accurate Planted Aquarium. It is nearly ready to roll. As you can tell it gets a lot of direct sunlight.
  7. Hey Friends! I'm working on a presentation for my Ichthyology class about Cichlids, and I can't really find any photos of Cichlids in their natural habitat in SA or CA. I found some good ones from the reef lakes in Africa, but everything on the new world cichlids is from an aquarium perspective. If you have some, and wouldn't mind me sharing to a class of about 5, I would really appreciate it! Thanks and happy fishkeeping!
  8. I want to add more plants to my tank. The more oxygen the better, right? I would love some heavily planted inspo! Please share !
  9. Hello everybody, As you could probably tell, Corydoras are my favorite fish. Post your pictures of your cory cats here along with the species name if possible. Here I have my albino and green cories (C. aeneus), both adult and baby peppered cories (C. paleatus), and pygmy cories (C. pygmaeus.). Thanks!
  10. Back then this was just a sideshow to the big Angelfish and Discus tank, but it had CO2 and T5 lighting. The size was 29 gallons and I had gotten the back panel from a friend in Germany.
  11. Hi everyone, I've recently become very fascinated wuth detritus worms and want to learn more about them and their life cycle. Yesterday I put a manzanita branch into my betta tank. Today I noticed a couple of detritus worms on it and thought nothing of it, because why would I? But then I realized... these have to be new detritus worms and thus must have just built their casings... or maybe they are still building them! I looked, and sure enough they were wiggling around, appearing to grab...detritus... and it looked like they were pulling it back or maybe eating it. I took a short timelapse that just shows a couple of them wiggling around on the branch and uploaded it here if you'd like to watch it.
  12. This is my madagascar lace plant its one of my favorites had it for a long time and in the last few months it has finally taken off.
  13. The new DSLR thread has me wondering if anyone else here is super into photography? It seemed like there were a few of you out there! What do you shoot with? What kind of photography are you into? I ran my own family portrait side-business for several years and also worked as a second shooter with my friend who is a wedding photographer, and really loved it! I shoot with a Nikon D700, and D300, and have always REALLY loved shooting nature and macro photography. If you are a photographer - share some of your favorite photos taken here! A few of my faves...
  14. So I've gotten tired of trying to get good pictures with my cell phone, and I needed a new hobby.. So I bought a DSLR and picked it up a Best Buy on my lunch break yesterday. I got the Canon EOS RP Mirrorless with the 24-105mm lens bundled together. I know relatively little about photography, so I was wondering if I could get some basic tips on getting good pictures of my fish. Here's a few from me playing around with it last night: https://imgur.com/a/J4CBRK2#jxhDCOS Some of these turned out okay, but they're obviously not as good as they could be. I'm finding that the auto mode on this camera prevents me from getting too many unrecognizable photos, but rarely produces anything of decent quality. So, I turned off some of the auto settings and used manual ISO, manual focus, and manual shutter speed. Then I shut off all the other lights in the room, and focused on one tank at a time. Here's what I came up with. https://imgur.com/a/NXpsAsW#O68hfqt I tried some tips I got on another forum, and added a bright (150W LED) floodlight to the top of the tank to serve as a flash of sorts. I ended up getting tons of Limia Nigrofasciata glam shots, as they're my newest addition - how do you think I could improve on these? The glass could obviously use some deeper cleaning, and this particular tank is a bowfront with limited viewing angles, which makes it hard to photograph. https://imgur.com/a/oqP9ru3#rBUTCzh Thanks for any tips!
  15. I'm terrible at taking pics and I was discussing that with my friend today. He bet me he could get amazing pics if I let him, so I did. He wasn't wrong! I'd like to introduce you to Pastrami, Salami and Tsunami the Dwarf Gouramis! They were the first three fish I obtained since getting back into the hobby, in the order I've listed them. Blu the Angelfish was feeling like showing off so my friend got a pic of her too! Pastrami Salami Tsunami Blu Here's a pic of them investigating the snail-pile I put in there for the assassin snails. Thanks for reading! I've never had crisp pictures such as these.
  16. Let’s start a thread about funny things our beloved fish, shrimps or snails do.
  17. Just wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a semi-affordable underwater camera? I currently have a slightly old Sony Action Cam and it has very blurry picture underwater. (It's sort of like a GoPro.) I haven't been able to figure out a way to repair it and as far as I can tell it is a common problem with this camera model. I was thinking of making some YouTube videos and these grainy images are not gonna cut it even for a non-money making video. Any recommendations? You can see an example here, the beginning before it is submerged it is fairly clear. Then underwater it is all grainy. 😞 I tried strapping a flashlight on it too in case it was too dark and saw the same thing. FYI, the fish are gold medaka ricefish, a couple of guppies, and some cherry shrimp. It was such good video!... except its blurry. Haha
  18. What did your aquarium look like at first and what does it look like now? Thanks to @tfwvusa for these photos!
  19. i thought that we could start a thread sharing our fish glow-ups from the store to established. here are some chili + strawberry that are established (6+ months) next to some new ones i added in today: its hard to believe these are the same fish.
  20. Let's start a Lake Tanganyika thread to share our experiences with different fish species from Lake Tanganyika and be a resource for new Tanganyikan fishkeepers.
  21. The purpose of this thread is to celebrate each Wednesday with pictures of the wood in our tanks. We could also include discussions of driftwoods, I guess, like what kinds we like best and best uses. I have one tank with two measly pieces of driftwood. The bigger piece was sold as spiderwood, the smaller didn't have any name attached to it, it was just a piece of wood screwed to a piece of slate that caught my eye at my lfs. I will admit, the nighttime lighting from my NICREW RGB Plus made for some neat creepy photos! I know y'all have better pictures than ME! Let's see 'em!!!
