    Oscar fight!

    back in 1969 I had 2 red Oscars that were a mated pair but I had no idea. I raised them from 2inch fish. one week they had taken all the gravel and formed what looked like a volcano. we came home late one night and they had laid eggs and they looked like salmon eggs. the filter was too strong...

    Going on vacation, recommendations?

    we go to bike week in Datona Fl for two weeks and use an EHEIM electronic fish feeder on my 125 gal aquarium and it works great with tons of options on feeding schedule. i change the battery every two years and they could go longer, i guess.

    Thoughts on black skirt tetras

    normally that may be the case but the tiger barbs swim around all day long together. around 1:00pm every day they get together in one corner and go nose down at a 45deg angle and take a siesta for an hour. i don't know what that angle is all about.

    Thoughts on black skirt tetras

    it must be the size of the tank those fish are in weather they are super aggressive or not. have 4 black skirted tetras and they act like they are a happy family. my tiger barbs get along also. they are swimming in a 125gal tank.

    Who sits and just watches their tank for extended periods?
