    Feeding my apisto.

    He seems to be eating everything now. Flake, sinking pellets etc.. thing is, he just seems to be a slow eater. He takes in a flake and chews on it for a while. By the time he's had 2-3 flakes, the other fish have eaten everything. He has a bigger mouth, so maybe I can get larger cichlid pellets...

    Prego?

    So, ya... She had 4 that I know of. One poor soul was eaten by the larger female in the tank. So I got a little breeder basket to put them in. That's it though and both larger females still look pregnant. I have 3 babies still in the breeder net with a couple baby shrimp..... I have males I can...

    Feeding my apisto.

    I just bought an apisto cacatuoidi male. He's not full grown. Probably 1.5"... The only thing I can get him to eat so far, are frozen blood worms. I also tried freeze dried mysis shrimp and bug bite flakes. He mouthed the shrimp and spit it out... What do you guys feed your apisto's? Thanks,

    Water softeners?

    I might try this. Trying to catch rain water could be hit or miss.. It rains mostly in the fall/winter. So this might make sense for my 10gal tank to get the parameters I want.

    Water softeners?

    My Sister lives in an area with very hard water 357 mg/l for gh is what the city report says.. she however has a water softener in her house.. she didn't even realize but she has been using the filtered water for her tanks. Just a 5 and 10 gallon with snails and a betta... I guess my question...

    Do I need a new filter?

    It's a hang on filter. So is water flowing out well or just a trickle?.. how long has it been since you cleaned it?

    Fluval bio-stratum and a new tank

    Damnit... I assumed the claims about ph were questionable... I did think twice about using it. However my friend has a tank with 75% of this stuff as substrate. His tank is basically carpeted with grass though.. I was trying to help out the plants and that's why I went with the stuff... I guess...

    Fluval bio-stratum and a new tank

    I'm wondering if the aqua soil is causing my cycling issues with my new tank... I've used some gravel, rocks and plants from my cycled tank. I also used filter media from the filter of another cycled tank... I am still doing daily water changes due to high nitrite. The nitrate levels are also...

    Eating my plants

    The crypt wendii green... I bought a tissue culture and put it in.... They destroyed them all... I put some horn wort and other stem plants... They peck at them a bit but the leaves are probably not as tender so they seem to be ok

    Eating my plants

    The food they get says it has vegetables and seaweed.. but also ground up sword prawn... Maybe they want straight salad? Lol. I'll put a picture of the food I got for them.

    Eating my plants

    Thanks.. It definitely looks like they're taking some of the leaves... They are baby plants. Probably nice and tasty. Are there vegetables I can give them other than algae wafers?.

    Prego?

    They were all girls at the store. I have no idea though if they were with boys.. I guess we'll see lol... Some of the females are really small. So I was going to wait for them to grow a bit before putting any males in the tank.. Well hopefully the babies are a different variety than what I have...
