    Fish Identification

    A while ago, I took a photo in a pet store of some fish I liked the look of so I could remember their name for when I had a free tank. Now I have a free tank, I've gone back to look at the photo and the stupid flash is covering the very bit of the name I need! I have to say, though, I question...

    Stocking Option For 14 Gal

    I'm soon going to have a planted 14 gal with only cherry shrimp in it and I've been trying to figure out what to put in there. I was thinking 5 kuhlis, 5 cherry barbs and maybe a krib, though I think 14 gals may be a bit small for a krib. What do you think? Aside from a betta sorority, killis...

    Long Term Tumour Care / Euth

    Hi everyone. It's been a while since I've posted on here. All my boys are still doing great except for the legendary Steve. About 7 months ago, I noticed that his scales were kicking out on either side due to what I assume is a lump somewhere in the body cavity. He's gradually been going...

    What Lighting For This Setup?

    The light unit has busted in my 14 gal so I guess I have no choice but to buy myself a new one! I've been dying to get my tank done up properly for a while and now I finally have both the time and the money to do it. However, I have literally no idea what I'm doing when it comes to lighting...

    Dream Interpreations

    Since I work weird hours now, I have a nap in the afternoon and, my god, I have some wacky dreams during that nap. I never really think much of the meaning of dreams until it came to the one I just had but I just feel like it holds some kind of significance. Let me start by explaining a dream I...

    Shipping Livestock

    I know a lot of members of this forum ship various animals and I wanted to know who you use. I'm completely new to the world of animal distribution but a pet shop has asked if I will be able to ship some axolotls and I have absolutely no idea! Do you have to go through a special courier service...

    Albino Cherry Shrimp?

    I've just noticed a newly hatched bunch of cherry shrimp that can't be more than a few hours old. However, I also noticed that one of these shrimp is pure white. Not a dash of red on it and put next to one of its siblings, it looks completely different. Is this some kind of genetic throwback...

    Carpet Options

    I'm looking at getting a carpet going in my 14gal since I am just sick to death of constantly looking at muck on top of the sand. Ideally I'd prefer to have something broader leafed, though I had been looking at hairgrass. I really need this to be a low budget carpet so no difficult plants and...

    Really Struggling To Treat Costia

    A few months ago, I had a costia infestation in my tank. The problem I've had is that I have some very sensitive critters in that tank and what treatment will kill the costia will also kill one or other of my inhabitants. I've been knocking the costia back every now and again with half doses of...

    Bailey, The Harlequin Axolotl

    About 6 weeks ago, I noticed Bailey was looking a little pale in places. I figured that because he was getting old, this was some kind of axolotl equivalent of liver spots. Then I thought it might be a side effect of an illness but upon further inspection, there was nothing wrong with him and...

    No Breeding From The Cherry Shrimp

    I've had my group of 10 cherries for about 2 months but I've yet to see any gravid females. They're such entertaining little creatures that I really want more but so far, I've had no luck. I know I've got a good mix of males and females, there's plenty of moss to hide in, the tank is plenty big...

    First Axolotl Breeding Attempt In 5 Years!

    Corys And Formalin/malachite Green

    I'm starting to lose the battle with costia in my community tank. I've done two rounds of methylene blue to no avail and my betta in particular is really starting to look pretty miserable. I have some FMG have I've been researching if it'll be ok with all the inhabitants at a half dose. So far...

    How To Kit Out The Project Tank
