    What's involved with keeping tire track eel?

    Say I bought a 100-150G tank, can you put more than one in a tank or are they best on their own with other fish? -Josh

    What's involved with keeping tire track eel?

    I've heard a lot of people talk about tire track eels and they seem to be one of the popular freshwater eels. What is involved with filtration, feeding, water conditions, etc? Can I just use a wet/dry with the dio-wheel? What do I feed them? How long do they get? Can I keep one in a 20G or 25G...

    Need help with gold gouramis!!!

    Thanks for the help. The first gourami died due to bad health from the pet store. As far as the one that is hidding, there are actually no lights for that tank. And all the fish in it are pretty relaxed, so it's a pretty non-stressful tank. I'm gonna put the mean gourami in the big tank in a...

    Question for Zebra Danio owners

    I have a five leopard danios (long finned) and after a couple of months in my tank ones tailfin (sorry I don't know the technical name) turned half black, and another ones turned the yellowish color you mentioned. There fin so I don't think there's anything wrong. -Josh

    Need help with gold gouramis!!!

    Ok, I put the new gourami in the community tank until I could figure out what I want to do with him. Now while in the community tank he has stayed in the same exact hidding spot for a day and a half. Doesn't move for food or anything. Down at the bottom under some plants in the back where no one...

    Need help with gold gouramis!!!

    No other fish. I didn't want to overcrowd but I could put both fish in my 25G community seeing as it's understocked right now. You think that would be a good idea? -Josh

    Need help with gold gouramis!!!

    I have had 1 gold gourami in a 10G tank by himself for about a month because the second one died a couple of weeks after I bought them both. SO I bought another one today to put in with him and minutes afterward the current fish started beating up the new one. It was bad. Wouldn't let the new...

    How often do I feed my comunity fish brine shrimp?

    Well I just tried it out for the first time and my danios and grown platies like it. But the Gold Gourami didn't and my endlers didn't really like it either. I've had a good experience with dried bloodworms before so I'll try frozen next. -josh

    How often do I feed my comunity fish brine shrimp?

    I picked up some more tropical flake food today and bought some frozen brine shrimp because I like to give them some variety. How often should I give the shrimp too them? Once a week? Twice a week? Mostly just platies and danios and various tetras in the tanks. -Josh

    Is it ok to put endlers and platies together?

    Here's a couple of links to pics of them. They are about the size of neon tetras. http://www.geocities.com/betta5/endler2.html http://www.geocities.com/endlers_livebeare...r/pictures.html Most of the pics are pretty dark and blurry, but you can still see what they look like. -Josh

    Is it ok to put endlers and platies together?

    I'm sure it is but I've never put them together before so I wanted to make sure. I have a 20G that I've set up for all the fry and teenage endlers and platies that I'm getting. The platies and endlers are in two different tanks right now. Thanks. -Josh

    Suggestions for my 10G

    I've had the goldfish for about 4-5 months now and have the tank at a steady 77 degrees and he/she seems to love it. Swims around and has a good time with the other fish. I'm hoping that I can buy a house of my own before he gets too big for the tank because I want a pond to have fish in. How...

    I have One male platy and four females (along with about 6-8 pretty young platies but they are going in another tank). 7 danios, and one goldfish, tetra (can't remember which). The goldfish and tetra are oddballs that ended up in the tank somehow. I need to get some type of bottom feeders as the...

    Suggestions for my 10G

    Well I already bought the gold gouramis because I want some for my 25G tank anyways so I figured if they weren't the same I would put them in the 25. Thanks for the info on neons and glowlights, I'll have to think about it. I'll let you know how it goes. -Josh

    Set up new CO2 system today

    How quickly should the bubbles come out. Right now about 2.5 days, there's one ever 5-10 seconds. Is that about right or should it still get faster over time? -Josh

    Suggestions for my 10G

    Is a ph of 7.8 too high for gouramis? I've tried everything with my tanks and can't get it below that ph. All my other fish don't have any problems with it but I want to make sure before killing them. :X -Josh
