    Bichirs the dinosaur in my home

    I know I haven't done an update in a while but not much has happened she's eating good and her fins have recovered fully from what I can tell. Hopefully I'll be doing a long vid tomorrow about her and the tank so I'll post that as soon as I can.

    Not this one as it's just the hospital tank and hopefully she will only be in it about a month or so. The 50 gallon she's moving into I will scape the heck out of lol.

    Bichirs the dinosaur in my home

    Thanks and she has picked out the little shelf under the sponge filter as her resting area so she will go there and nap for about 30 minutes then zoom around the tank like a little kid.

    Bichirs the dinosaur in my home

    Allow me to take you back through the fog of history to a time before time even began. A time when great armored monsters once prowled the black muddy waters of ancient rivers feeding upon prehistoric fish and animals. These beast of both the land and the water adapted to there dark and murky...

    73 gallon Vietnamese hillstream tank

    NewSo unfortunately the local fish store I planned on getting my white clouds from won't have another shipment in until later this spring. Since I'm not ready to drop 3.75$ each ordering them online I'll just have to put this build on hold for a bit. That being said I have a few other projects...

    Stop me!!

    I dislike adding the treatment directly to the tank as you have to treat the full tank instead of just the water added which with a big tank can get costly. If your off a well and don't need to treat the water then putting it into the a container Is still how I like to do it simply because I...

    Stop me!!

    Well here's the thing with gold fish and even discus. There are hundreds of sites devoted to there care and requirements and let's face it not every site is written by an expert in the field of that fish most are simply a regurgitation of what someone else read on another site and in turn that...

    Ah. Never kept discus but I can see the advantages of higher temps especially with faster growth.

    Stop me!!

    Well I'm not gonna claim to be a goldfish expert since I've only ever kept a pair that I had to take from my mothers tank as they outgrew it pretty fast. That being said I'll give it my best shot at stopping you lol. So my first point would be that these fish are goldfish even though they are...

    Well according to most of what I've found reading up they are in the same suggested range as rummynose tetras which is in the 75-80 range that being said they will acclimate fine to slightly higher like 82 but just like with all fish the higher the temp the faster there metabolism will work and...
