    Dr. Erik Johnson, Koi Vet, interview

    Vikinglord's Freshwater Biocube

    Frankly I'm stumped by this little tank. I have hardly any issues with our systems at work but this one gives me trouble, oy vay. Oh well, it's fun learning! Haha So, I'm having standard issues with algae, no big concern for me other than I think algae on the plants is causing them to melt? I...

    Vikinglord's Freshwater Biocube

    Quick Update, I've kept up with the water changes for the most part, I've been doing 3 - 4 a week. Fortunately with a 1 gallon bucket that's not too hard or time consuming. Lilac's gills are still white. Neither her personality nor her appetite has changed at all. Her tank is actually starting...

    Hello all, here is part two of the pond health workshop where we toured Pond Country in Colfax, North Carolina. If any of you live in the area, I highly recommend giving their facilities a visit. Enjoy :)

    Pond Fish Health Workshop

    This was done at the very beginning of March before it took off in the U.S. and all the shelter-in-place orders started happening.

    Vikinglord's Freshwater Biocube

    Nope. Other than the white scales she seems to be in good health. No clamping of the fins, no gasping for breath, eating regularly. I'm scratching my head with this one.

    Pond Fish Health Workshop

    Thanks! I'm simply trying to educate and inspire people to have more life in their lives! I've found many people tend to freak out over caring for fish when it's really not that hard. I find keeping fish to be a very rewarding hobby.

The series will also include a visit to North Country Ponds, the Blue Ridge Koi...

    Vikinglord's Freshwater Biocube

    Pheonix I've seen other hobbyists do that, I have no idea if it's okay though. Quick update, we noticed our betta's gills were turning white. I looked at a picture from when we first got her and she had a few white scales. At first I was thinking old age, but she's not that old. Turns out the...

    Vikinglord's Freshwater Biocube

    Thank you! I purchased both the anubias and java fern from Petsmart in those top fin gel things so no decor. I'll pull the rizomes out of the substrate.

    Compacta Amazon was struggling too much and melting off. Replaced it with a Java Fern, we'll see. I read somewhere that the tubers aren't supposed to be buried, does anyone know of any links on this website or others that go into detail on that? I've noticed one of the leaves on the anubias...

    New Aquagarden Mini Pond Kit from Aquascape!

    Hehe I want one too and have no place for it xD We're in Chicago so it gets pretty cold here. We typically recommend customers have a de-icer to keep a hole in the ice for gas exchange to let the CO2 escape, combine that with a submersible pump or aerator and there are minimal issues to having...
