    Can you help me identify these guys?

    So what's up ? Haven't looked at all the forums today but it looks like you need some help figuring out a suitable tank and compatible tank mates. 🧐 Have you posted a thread?

    Can rasbora espei and peacock gudgeons live in a PH of 8.0-8.2?

    Hey, Rocky! Sorry just responding. The following snipitt is cut and pasted off of today's Google search when I enquired about pH of my city tap water: 7.2 to 8.2 Health Information about Drinking Water Questions ... ,- Dallas Is Dallas's water soft or hard? Dallas's water is very soft. What is...

    Can rasbora espei and peacock gudgeons live in a PH of 8.0-8.2?

    Who says you can't? I do understand, though. It took me a while to put a second species in my tank due to worry over agression and about doing everything the right way. My stress was agonizing because everything was healthy and I didn't want to fail. I trust that you will figure something...

    very small cherry shrimp

    Yes in my reply I did say IF they could catch them 😁 I don't know how fast guppies are, but I do know that shrimp are pretty conscious creatures and can get out of the way in a jiffy. Little shrimplets or babies might be a different story but then again they have their size on their side...

    At last! Horned Nerites !

    They had huge discounts on gravel vacuums and Seachem Prime. I never imagined they'd have these little sweeties, though. I really like my local fish store, but I can't pass up good savings. The fish department was in pretty good shape, to be honest and I told the lady so, after I got my snail...

    I think, and offer my thoughts with an affectionate spirit to you, a fellow Peacock Gudgeon lover. What I think is that you are disappointed that things aren't working out exactly as planned. I think you've considered throwing away your hard work and dedication over your frustration. I think...

    Advice for the Lovelorn Pygmy Lover

    I love my pygmy corydoras but I don't think they love me. 😩 I fell in love with them the minute I set eyes on them. 🤤 I can tell they love each other but they're leaving me out. 😕 I waited and watched forever for them to come my way. 🧐 I dreamed for the day when we could be together at last 🥰 I...

    Fry in tank with no substrate or plants

    All types of plants can float. Of course some should not stay for very long but if you need something short-term... see what floats...

    Never had guppies, but my gut says: "if they catch them they will eat them."

    Bless your lupine ❤️ You keep telling me, but I've never told you... until now... It's not ME, It's YouTube. I can't figure out how to fix it. I've been so ashamed to confess my ignorance. 😔

    Can rasbora espei and peacock gudgeons live in a PH of 8.0-8.2?

    I understand. I've followed this thread as well as those dealing with the preparation for your favorites. I'm just trying to focus on what can work with the water that you do have. Peacock Gudgeons, T. ocellicauda, come from Papua New Guinea as do my Pseudomugil furcatus. Note...

    I chose fish for my tank that occupy the same waters in nature. Best way to find additional fish species is to research natural habitat. (Keeping in mind other aspects, of course, such as where they hang out in the tank, numbers required, m/f ratio, etc.). These work:

    Baby Pictures !

    Not as much as I love cropping their semi-transparent tinyness-es...😂... You can tell some of the gudgeons that are really pale are from a longer time ago; the more current ones are more exciting because they got their tail spots!!! In the third from the last image you can see the relative...
