    You just float it in the aquarium.

    Tell me something funny

    We're learning vocabulary for the Star Spangled Banner. On the word "ramparts," a boy raises his hand and says, "That's what you get when you butcher a sheep." (You'll get it in a second. I'll wait.) Ranch kids. :rolleyes:

    Juice’s Art Journey

    ...Until we cut them down and put them in our living rooms! I love Christmas trees but, looking at it objectively, this is a very weird custom. :lol:

    Why are all my male goldfish chasing my female goldfish everyday?

    Are your goldfish comets or fancy? A 40 gallon might be big enough for a single fancy goldfish, which stay smaller and aren't as active. For a group I recommend a 75 gallon. Comet goldfish are actually pond fish. They grow very big, are very active, eat a lot, and produce a lot of waste...

    What are you doing today?

    I am ordering materials for a new tank build! Now if we can just get enough of this snow melted that I can go find some river rocks...

    I'm not too big on surrealism, but the balloon skeleton is cute. :)

    Retired and reviving 300-gallon tank

    Well, it might work. Sometimes it does. Just don't get too attached to the shrimp. :)

    Retired and reviving 300-gallon tank

    Generally true. I wouldn't guarantee it. In the case of smaller fish, it really isn't aggression; it's predation. I suppose the specific strain would matter, a bit like bettas: Some strains have had the predatory urge bred out of them; others haven't. But you can also mitigate the predation...

    Sometimes I feel like my head is inhabited by squirrels. But never an octopus.

    Anyone ever use fresh water scuds for live fish food?

    I've given my fish scuds I mail ordered, and slightly larger ones from a local, fish-free pond. Our bettas made short work of them. So yes, they are great fish food! I'm not sure about breeding them. Would be fun to try. Do keep us posted if you try it!

    What are you doing today?

    Had a fun sledding expedition with Mrs. Badger, the offspring, and the dog. Got the Sumatra tank torn down, and the old 30 gallon set up. Starting to visualize the new Yunnan hill stream tank.

    Retired and reviving 300-gallon tank

    Never heard of them! But in a tank your size, you could get normal ones. My experience is that if you get five or more of them, and plenty of big plants and hardscape to move around in, their aggression evens out and they just bluff each other a lot. They seem to enjoy each other's company...

    Fun Facts We Didn't Need To Know

    Some people are really committed to their archery, I guess. I'm just a mere amateur.

    That is my plan. I am delayed right now because I can't find homes for a few of my nano fish, I am saving up money for the equipment I need, and all of the local river rocks and driftwood are under a meter or more of snow. But the wait is giving me time to really plan things out, so I guess...

    I'm totally bummed!

    I wonder if, in most of their range, they have very few or no natural predators. They seem to live in seasonally fluctuating streams in the wild, which is not a habitat where one would expect to find large, piscivorous fish. But you'd think they'd still be vulnerable to birds and such. Really...

    Assassin Snails

    No idea! Probably.

    Such a lovely fish. I was right on the verge of getting them, but decided to tear down my sumatra tank and start over on something else. they look very happy. What are you using to darken your water?

    Assassin Snails

    It isn't their preferred diet, but they'll eat it if there's nothing else. Kind of how I feel about salad. :lol:
