    Bimac Octopus Egg Rearing

    My Bimac octopus has seen her last days :-( I hate these damn short lifespan on cephs! I knew something was up when I dropped in a fiddler crab and she didn't even give it a second look. She has laid her eggs, and I think I will try to rear them, keep one and sell the rest. Does anyone know...

    Brackish Seahorse

    Accoring to the endangered seahorse species Hippocampus capensis is a brackish to marine fish. Here's the link. I wonder if this is actually credible? As most of us know fishbase is an extremely accurate source, and I would not say otherwise against their team of Ichthyologists...

    Just Wondering..........

    Has William or the mods ever thought about putting TFF on Aqua-Rank? I am not suggesting putting TFF on Aqua-Rank, I am just curious as to if there is a reason why TFF is not there.

    Poll: How Many Bettas Do You Keep?

    I have seen many members with signatures that have tons of pictures of their bettas, so I am just wondering how many you guys keep. I only keep one betta in a planted 10 gallon.

    Brackish Fish Section In Fish Index

    After reading Papasmurf's suggestion in tropical chit chat I believe he has a valid point. If there can be a seperate section for Goldfish and Koi which are Cyprinids, why cant there be a seperate section for brackish fish? There would be enough exisitng profiles to warrant one with ease. From...

    Collecting Your Own Bloodworm

    Its about that Summer time again, which means pesty mosquitos, and free bloodworms! I have collected my own bloodworms last Summer with great success and I plan to do the same this Summer.

    Members/mod Of The Month/year?

    I havent been at TFF for too long so please excuse me if this has been done or suggested in the past. I was thinking maybe there could an award given out to a member and moderator monthly/yearly to show our appreciation of their hard work. The criteria could be something along the lines of...
