This is a quick summary of an experiment I did in 2009. I find that most plants will survive in salt. You'll likely be surprised at how many common aquarium plants are, to some degree brackish. Most all do tolerate salts to some extent. All those that I listed can do well at the lower end of brackish range... near densities of 1.008-.010 The list below are the ones I have kept (and still keep) in such circumstances: (BW)
Anacharis, Anubias, Bacopa, Cabomba, Hornwort, Water Sprite,…Continue

My Gourami male has started a bubble nest which is now a good size. There is a female in the tank, and if they breed I want to be ready for fry. I've heard that gourami fry are extremely small ad can't eat flake food, so I was wondering what to feed the fry when they do hatch. For my guppies, platys, ad mollies I currently feed their babies Hikari First Bites, the powdered flake food, but I've never had gourami fry before.
Would live baby brine shrimp work?

So yesterday i went to my lfs and got a pleco. this morning, he's lying on his back. Dead. I really need help because i dont know what I'm doing wrong.

Still unable to believe what I was seeing I gathered up a bottle of the aquarium water and headed down to my…Continue
