    Burrowing Fish - Id?

    Hi guys. :) Nearly a year ago I got some plants from my LFS and found that a fish had hitchhiked along with them. It looked like a small pleco or some kind of algae eater. It was obviously a bottom feeder, so i just tossed it in the tank (29g peaceful community) and forgot about it. Fast forward...

    Algae Help.

    I've had this algae for months now.. Actually probably over a year and I can't stand it anymore lol :shout: It's everywhere. It breaks off in little pieces and gets stuck in the powerheads. My corals grow on the algae instead of on the rocks, and then the algae breaks off and the corals float...

    Sailfin (Algae) Blenny Feeding?

    What is this with my luck. :( Anyway, I've had a sailfin algae blenny for a few days now, I got it last Tuesday so it's been almost a week and it hasn't eaten much. I've seen it take a few bits of algae, and it looks like it tries to eat stuff from the rocks but that can't be enough to sustain...

    Switching From A Tropical Community To A Shelldweller Tank..

    Hi guys, I've had my 29g freshwater tank set up for a few years now with the normal average community setup - tetras, cories, upside down catfish, kuhlie loaches. Recently I haven't been paying much attention to it and it's being neglected. This is mostly because my saltwater tank is just so...

    Electric Went Out For A Few Hours, Now Fish Is Sick.

    Okay hi guys. Last night my electric went out for about five hours. When I woke up, I checked out all my fish to make sure they were okay, but I couldnt find my 'big hawk', who is always the first one to greet me. It took a few minutes until he finally revealed himself behind a rock, gasping for...

    Upside Down Catfish Compatibility & Feeding

    I have three upside down catfish (the real ones) and I'm just wondering if they'll eat cherry shrimp or not? Also, what do you feed them. I feed my cories and kuhli loaches hikari sinking wafers and bloodworms but i haven't seen the UD catfish eat any yet, even though they swim right over them.
