    Live bearers in soft water

    Sadly moving to Europe for livebearers isn't really an option. Also the fishes would have to be at least as large as kubotai rasbora as I think if they were much smaller they would be expensive fish food. Anyway thanks. I think the tank will just transitiion to egg layers only and I will no...

    Live bearers in soft water

    Its ok - what trigger this post is a long time ago in these forums I said live bearers require harder water and someone said no there were species that were soft water species. Now that i am transitioning my tank to softer water for i wanted to check if there was a suitable replacement for my...

    Live bearers in soft water

    Well i did say tds 60; so i guess what you are saying I should edit the subject and put very soft.... but none the less the question stands the same are there live bearers that do well in 3 dgh/60 tds water ? Gary mentioned a couple of species I should look into but i suspect they are too...

    Live bearers in soft water

    I'm sorry about the confusion - i think the problem is i don't consider gh 3 as being that soft so when you said there were species that thrive in soft water i assumed they would thrive in water much softer than that.

    Live bearers in soft water

    Do you have species list? Or some of them? Btw these days i mostly only use speciality stores since i can never find what i want from normal places. This doesn't mean they will carry these fishes as I mostly look for dwarf cichild but they might.

    Live bearers in soft water

    I thought there were a few specific species that actually did well in soft-water but perhaps i am mistaken.

    Live bearers in soft water

    I currently have a bunch of guppy in one of my aquariums with water conditions tds 120 gh 7; and they do ok though i suppose they would prefer harder water. When i move the new aquarium will have target conditions tds 60 gh 3 which is probably too soft for them. The tank will have primarily sa...

    WANT TO BUY: Pygmy Chain Swords

    What I am missing here is if they are different because of growing environment then why don't they appear the same if you plant all three side by side in the aquarium in which they grow under identical conditions ?

    WANT TO BUY: Pygmy Chain Swords

    Not what you want but aquariumplants has them and are very reliable; sadly shipping burns esp this time of year but maybe they have some other stuff you want: https://aquariumplants.com/narrow-leaf-chain-sword-echinodorus-tennelus-10-per-order/ I personally gave up on the stuff - i mean i...

    bristlenose pleco Question

    For those who talk about fish behavior; they really should talk about the sex of the fish. As to 'hiding' or being out during the day with regards to BN it depends quite a bit on the sex of the fish. Sure there is some variance among individual fishes but generally speaking one sex is going to...

    bristlenose pleco Question

    Petco used to sell them for $3; they are very common. However since the pandemic petco stocking has been rather unineresting.

    Fish purchase

    Yea i would agree that aquahuna quality is medium but reliable. I've used them about 8 times and never had any health issues with their fishes. wetspot quality point generically is definitely higher - esp when buying wc fishes from them; i really prefer wc for a lot of species given that tank...

    Fish purchase

    This is too generic of a comment since there are 100's of stores you can have fishes shipped from with some being exceptional and others well worse than the worse lfs i've seen. The quality depends on individual store when ordering fishes....

    Fish purchase

    I seem to always end up ahead with aquahuna (who charge $12 for shipping); but they do have weather limits on where they ship; so if you are super cold they will just cancel the order (I think). I odn't want to push aquahuna and as i noted i would never use them for cichild. As for my local lfs...

    Fish purchase

    I usually get them via a hobbist i trust or mail order - if mail order westspot is my # choice; followed by aquahuna for schoolers and 'cheap' fishes. i wont' use aquahuna for cichild or specialty fishes. Also specialty stores i like are tangleupcichild and aquaticclarity. For hobbist well as...
