I've learned a lot from this site. I've watched videos and looked at photos. I've read posts and voyeured in the chatroom. I am seeing different types of angel fish, different cichlids and all sorts of fish I didn't currently have much interest in, but have now done a little outside reading on.
From reading the site and such, I can name plant species correctly and identify different rainbow fish species by name. However, there is a frustrating thing I must bring up. Many times I see…Continue
Some info on cross breeding shrimp. Which ones will and wont.
Shout out to "That Lad (LED)" for the supplied chart. !
I've done plenty of freshwater tanks, dirt tanks, artificial... Basically I've mastered the craft. I have a 30 gallon tank sitting around with nothing in it, and I want to move on to saltwater. From the research I've done so far, it sounds pretty easy after it's set up. Here are the questions I came up with so far.
1. When adding saltwater for the very first time, do I have to do anything special!!!! Can't I just get a big huge bucket of water add the salt as directed, measure…Continue
Ok so i dirted my tank , it's a 12 gallon eclipse with 7 fish (I know its overstocked please don't freak out) there are 3 gouramis that arent agressive at all, 3 goldfish, and one white skirt tetra. When i first dirted the tank i used some dirt from my backyard and some gravel that was all blue and tanky, now today i went to the store and bought some natural looking gravel , and some miracle grow organice choice soil. so tell me where to start please. :)

I attached a sheet of A4 gloss photo paper to the cupboard door beside my tank
so looking down the length of the tank it gives a good indication of water clarity
(photo's taken in same exposure mode and lighting conditions *room…Continue
Soft water has more to do with GH than pH. Typical home water softeners soften water using a technique known as "ion exchange''. That is, they remove calcium and magnesium ions by replacing them with sodium ions. Although this does technically make water softer, most fish won't notice the difference. That is, fish that prefer soft water don't like sodium either, and for them such water softeners don't help at all. Thus, home water softeners are not an appropriate way to soften water for…Continue

So yesterday morning I did my regular water change and tank maintanance on my 40g and 20g.
This morning I wake up and flip on my lights like I would any other day. I come back to check out the 20 and make sure everything is working out well after moving some wood and plants the day before. I notice two things; 1) my serpaes are 'blood' red and 2) both them and the neons are swimming and chasing each other around like crazy. Then to my surprise a spray of neon tetra eggs float right…Continue
I have a couple of nice Angel Fish in my 65gal aquarium that have laid eggs about seven times & each time they have ate all the eggs. On March 6th thought I would give them a hand - I removed the Amazon Sword leaf that they used and put it in a breeder tank with no other fish in it . Only about 20 eggs hatched and are 11 days old now. I was feeding them frozen bbs for the last few days , not sure if they are eating much of it ??? Today I went out to my local pet shop & bought a…Continue

I just love spending ages pouring loads of water over new gravel or in this case sand to get it as clean as possible for my beloved aquarium, perhaps just a tad of sarcasm in that part of my blog post. Anyway onto the filter, I don't know if I've caused any potential issues but I've just removed the "check ball" from the intake strainer of my fluval 206 external, and all that seems to have happened is the outflow speed has increased quite a bit for doing so, had a little ponder and during my…Continue
I have been out of the hobby for a few years. Having kept tanks and fish most of my life. I knew it would only be a matter of time. When my two year old asked for a fish. That was all the incentive I needed. I have a number of tanks just stored away. I pulled out a 20 G LONG. And took a cut and dry approach. Gold fish were my go to ...
They are attractive fish. Hardy and cold water lovers. They would be the show peace. No need to aqua scape. What would be the point. Gold fish have a…Continue
