    Green Fire Tetras

    I've had my school of green fire tetras for a few months now and they are doing great. Unfortunately, they have nibbled off all the roots of my water lettuce! I didn't realize they were doing this at first, I thought they were just browsing a bit but I noticed a couple of them with the roots...

    Proper Etiquette/good Manners

    I by no means am an entirely proper person with perfect manners. However, I find it unfortunate that good manners seem to be much more difficult to come by. I was raised to be well behaved at the dinner table(no elbows, sit up straight, no belching, cut food properly, keep mouth closed, etc). I...

    Who Are You Feeding Outdoors?

The usual visitors I have are a multitude of different sparrows, house finches, pine siskins, blue jays, nuthatches, downy woodpeckers. I also have a hummingbird and butterfly feeder. The hummingbirds are...

    Sky Blue Tetra(Boehlkea Fredcochui)

    Hi, I purchased a school of Blue Tetras a couple of months ago and have them in my 30 gallon with Flame Tetras. I have one noticeably larger female of the group who seems to be much more "frantic" than the other ones. She constantly chases all the other fish away from her and has sort of staked...

    "this Post Will Need Approval From A Moderator Before This Post Is

    Is this a permanent thing now, or is this just an experiment? This delay would make it hard for people to help in the emergency section, as time is of the essence usually,(depending on how long it takes a mod to approve the post).

    My oldest fish is my Green Corydora. She is 12 years old and has survived many different tanks and moves to new houses. She lost her mate last month who was also 12.

    Amano Larvae Need Brackish Water To Grow?

    Hey friends, Mosura's "shrimpton" shrimp food is supposed to contain the nutrients necessary to grow all shrimp from the larvae stage. The company is trying to "de-mystify" the thought that you can't grow Amano and other baby shrimp into adulthood without the use of brackish water. They claim...

    I'm very excited to have discovered today that one of my CRS females is full of eggs! I recently transferred my CRS over to a 5 gallon using the Fluval shrimp substrate which lowered the pH and voila! Looks like it paid off. I'm just not sure if she mated with another CRS or one of my Golden Bee...
