    Went in for Neocaridina, left with...

    We hit up our LFS's "Black Friday" sale last night looking for deals on Neocaridina. We left with this handsome little guy instead. We aren't normally into long finned varieties, but he spoke to us. Last two pics were taken after settling in overnight. Can't wait to see how he colors up in a...

    What made you laugh today?

    Oh boy, Mrs. Flushable, the kids and I all enjoyed a big belly laugh today! Yesterday I bought a new Taurus G2C replace my bulky and heavy everyday carry. So we all went out to my mother's property this afternoon to get some trigger time. I brought my new Taurus, the Mrs. brought her Walther...

    Started a plant only dutch-esque tank

    I couldn't just throw away a bunch of perfectly good trimmings, could I? So... I took a spare 5 gallon and threw this together. Obviously just the beginning.

    I need an adult (suggestion needed)

    I am looking for suggestions on a new RED (or similarly bright colored) stem plant for my 6.8 gallon cube tank. Pressurized CO2 and around 100 PAR at substrate. PFS substrate with osmocote root tabs. PH hovers around 6.8. I currently have Ludwigia repens that is absolutely thriving in this tank...

    2 gallon terrarium

    I found a bunch of 2 gallon jars in the clearance section at our local Walmart for $5 each, so I bought them all. My coworker requested that I build her a terrarium like the others I've set up around the office. This is how it came out. Dragon stone, Hemigraphis repanda, Hypoestes phyllostachya...

    Algae on glass with DHG

    Alrighty, so I'm growing a carpet of DHG (almost there, woohoo!) and like every normal tank, I do get a little algae here and there, primarily on the glass. Which is no problem for most of the tank. My problem lies within the bottom inch or two of glass. The DHG has grown in all the way up to...

    Morning hike with my family (pic heavy)

    My wife, kids and I went for a hike this morning a few miles down the road from our house. Things are just starting to bloom here in Ohio. Nice and cool with temperatures in the low 50s. We found lots of Sarracenia purpurea, ferns, various wild orchids and other flowers, various mosses...

    New betta...

    Our oldest betta, Fred, is being moved to my job so we've been on the lookout for a new one for at home. Saw this guy up in Canton today and my wife said he was the one. Thinking of calling him either Wasabi (since we have Sashimi) or Drogon (dragon scale plakat and she's a GOT fan). I'm anxious...

    Resealing 5 gallon

    A few weeks ago one of our 5 gallon tanks started leaking from a seal. It's a standard 5 gallon rimmed tank from a kit (Aqua Culture from Walmart). I've heard of people removing the rim from small tanks to make them rimless. Would this be possible with this tank and would I need to do or use...

    New project. Not 100% sure what will happen...

    Today is my day off and we ran to Keim Lumber in Charm, Ohio. It's basically an Amish version of Lowe's. Charm is nothing more than rural intersection of "Bob's Road" and county road 557 in Amish country. But they have a phenomenal hardware store with a wonderful selection of exotic hardwoods...

    Rescapes

    I recently set up my old 5 gallon standard to try my hand at high tech. I scored a bunch of scratch and dent plants at Petco that were half off. Well, after about a week it decides to spring a leak. Just one day after we spent two hours separating and planting hairgrass! So, I just rescaped our...

    Bettas (Northeast-ish Ohio)

    Are there any breeders or does anyone have quality bettas between Columbus and Cleveland? We're in Holmes County for reference and are willing to drive a reasonable distance. Plakats and marble genes preferred, but open to anything unique. Thanks in advance.

    New 5 gallon

    I just finished setting up our galaxy koi plakat male betta's new 5 gallon. I'm going to pick up a curtain to put behind his tank to separate him from the kitchen.

    Higher quality bettas

    I am entertaining the idea of getting another betta, but our LFS never have any high quality bettas like I see on here and other forums. I'm not looking for any specific morph or color, just something unique (and not $500!). Where do y'all get your bettas or who is a reputable source located in...

    TFF members are the best!

    I received a package from @LordHappy yesterday evening containing a bunch of java fern (as in close to $100 worth if I bought it at our LFS!), süßwassertang, red root floaters, dwarf sag and a lot more. He even included a bunch of bladder snails for our daughter who is obsessed with snails...

    Bush whackers

    My jungle tank got a bit of a trim today to make room for some different plants that a very generous member @LordHappy offered to send me. There was a mass exodus of duckweed as well. I probably threw out a Cool Whip tub worth of the stuff. I also learned that I have a bunch of baby guppies that...

    Simple woodworking

    I came across some old photos the other day and among them were some builds I did related to keeping reptiles. At the time, I had no previous experience, plans or tools besides hand tools. I just knew the dimensions I needed and went for it. They weren't fancy, but they were functional... And...

    Christmas dinner...

    Christmas is upon us. I know I'm not alone going all out on Christmas dinner. Although I do all the cooking in our home, I especially enjoy Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. This year I am going with just the basics. What is everyone else making for Christmas dinner? I'm breaking tradition...
