    Birthday Wishes Sub-forum?

    Given the recent surge in Birthday Wishes thread in Announcements, it might be prudent to create a sub-forum for them. Not necessarily because they're crowding out more administratively-minded threads, but just for the sake of organization. (Can you tell that I keep my possessions in neatly...

    Feeder Shrimp Wanted -- California

    I'm just dreaming about swapping to a tank full of SAPs, but while I'm dreaming let me ask about live foods. Anyone know of an inexpensive place to buy live feeder shrimp in bulk? I have it in my head that if I swapped back to puffers, it might be a good idea to just buy a bagful every few...

    This Is My Favorite Kind Of Science

    Scientists try to let the blind `see' fish I bet that most of us would enjoy the experience too! Yet another reason I want to go back to the Tennessee Aquarium one day.

    L66 Do Not Ship Well.

    Bought 3 more L66 from Lotsoffish on Aquabid--figured it was a safe choice seeing as how the guy has a great reputation as a seller. Everything arrived on time with great packing. 2 DOAs. :shout: I give up! I'm not buying any more of these unless I can *walk* them home. (Btw, the...

    L66 *and* L260?

    Some of you may already know the saga, but I need to decide in the next couple of days on this issue... Would it be an ok breeding practice to keep a group of L66 in the same tank as a group of L260s? Or is there too much of a risk of hybridization/misidentified fry?

    So... L66 Or L260?

    Ok, I've come into a bit of free cash and I've got the fish bug, so I'm pretty certain that I'm going to get a set of plecs come November. The question then just becomes: L66 or L260? I think I can get the 66 a bit cheaper, but I also think that the 260s might show up better in my tank (very...

    Pretty Pond Picture

    This is actually a picture taken by a friend of mine, but it's just so wonderful that I thought I'd share it with you guys. I've asked for a higher res version of it (if possible) and I'll post that too if I get it. I saved this as the background for my work computer the instant I saw it. :lol:

    I Hate You All!

    *edit: :lol: Sorry for using a trollish heading. I waited 10 days and two pages without response, but I'd like to get this decision made before Christmas!* So I got some great news last week: my test kit is not wonky and I *do* in fact have fairly soft water. Yay! (Meaning I was sold pH-7...

    Clean And Lock Pinned Topic Fella's pinned topic on Dwarf Puffers is in desperate need of a clean-up and (I think) it should be locked. Most of the responses don't contribute any useful information or are completely off-topic. Fella's created a very comprehensive and...

    I've Got Fry!

    well, it looks like the Rio Chuloteca convicts are just as easily spawned as the bog-standard ones. i've been pretty depressed by my tanks ever since the disaster when i moved, so i freely confess to slacking off about maintenance. but just as i was going to start siphoning today, guess what i...

    A Head's Up For U. S. "zebra" Fans This guy's got up to 6 L173s for $35 each. If I had the money, I'd gamble on one or two just to see how they grow. These shouldn't be authentic Zebras, but if they are 173s...

    Tiny Tank Topic

    i'm interested in trying out a 5g brackish hex tank and am curious about what sort of hardy fish would be an option? most specifically, i'm interested in a pair of desert gobies at the moment, but i'm open to other suggestions as well--provided that they aren't bumblebee gobies. :P --edit--...
