    Figure 8 Puffer

    what size is this wall tank? any fish needs enough space to turn around comfortably, so if the tank is only 4" wide, then you can't have any fish bigger than 2".

    Angel X Blue Ram

    pic doesn't work. and i agree that there is no way you actually have a ramxangel hybrid.

    Questions With A Twist

    nmonks has mentioned modifying a mini-fridge for use as a chiller. something about drilling holes into the sides and coiling up pipes. might be a decent DIY option.

    Guppy Photo Compotition

    I think the confusion lies with saying "there's no POTM competition" when POTM stands for Pet of the Month here. :P

    You probably have "dud information". Kribs can be territorial little sods and can really bully other bottom-dwellers. Cories would be particularly vulnerable as they aren't very fast. What size tank is it anyways? 5 kribs is a lot.

    Glo-fish Breeding

    No, but they do fluoresce (glow) under ultraviolet light (blacklight). In normal light, they're just really brightly colored.

    Potamotrygon Reticulatus - Tank Mates?

    I've never kept rays, but I know that TIKARMANN (wherever he went) used to keep datnoids and uarus with his rays, but he had a huge tank. The panda uarus were gorgeous. I bet you could keep a chocolate cichlid in there.

    Where Can You Buy Puffer Fish From

    GSP get to be about 6" (if i remember correctly) and are fairly territorial, so you'd need at least a 55g for two of them. With a 20g tank, you could have 3-4 South American Puffers or 4-5 Dwarf Puffers. Both need tons of decor and plants (although for different reasons). Good news is that...

    Bio Spira

    Since the point of refrigerating the bacteria is to slow its metabolism and prolong the length of time it can live without fresh food or oxygen, I'm sure that there is a shelf life for this product--and that it is considerably less than 3 years. You also can't discount the idea that it might be...

    Fish That Will Get Along With African Cichlids

    What you should know is that there are TONS of African cichlids, most of whom are way way too big for a 10g tank. The Rift Lake cichlids (which is what I bet you're thinking of) also need to be kept in large groups for the most part so that they don't bully each other to death. There are some...

    Fresh Water Puffer Fish

    Well, actually, that's just dwarf puffers ;) Even the other carinotetradon species need 10g per puffer. Then next smallest are Colomesus asellus and those ought to go in a 20g or larger. After them, you have the tetradons and those all belong in 30g+ tanks. In short: the vast majority of...

    Tropical Fish Keeping

    I'd definitely do "A History of Goldfish" explaining where they come from, how big they get, why they die so fast in bowls, that all the types are the same species, etc. Goldfish are easily the most familiar to the general populace, but people know so little about them!
