    Insecticides And Aquaria

    I have an issue with tiny drugstore beetles. I think they probably arrived in a bag of cat biscuits. I don't have any dried goods in original paper bags - they all go in air-tight lock&lock containers. I have a product that does work on these critters called Kybosh (it's an aerosol). My problem...

    Caudal Blister

    His "normal" finage is semi transparent, not clear but not really soild. The area where the "blister" is is completely opaque. It looks kind of puffy in the same way as a small pillow. There is no external wound, no fluff, no redness. I'll keep trying to get a better pic. When their lights come...

    Caudal Blister

    Fish: Male mustard-gas betta approx 9-12months old. A full description of the fishes symptoms. Where the caudal fin joins the body there appears to be some sort of blister within the caudal fin. The portion of fin that extends from the "blister" has now gone so he has a "V" missing. The ends of...

    They'Re Here!

    I don't have the time or space to dedicate to raising betta fry until at least Feb, but I'm pretty sure that I'm going to (try to) spawn the following pairs: Imagi & Lilly, Enigma & Lolly, Nero & Dixie, Diesel & Dinky and... I'm undecided between trying Fizzy (cellophane) with Charisma...

    They'Re Here!

    That's a normal way of doing things with fish. Either breed siblings or breed offspring back to parent. In fact it's done with a lot of animals to get certain traits, lines, etc.

    They'Re Here!

    The splat is back! Seems that when Imagi is stressed his splat loses it's yellow-ness, and when he starts to relax a bit it gets more and more yellow - how wierd. He's got a little bit of fin damage to the top part of his tail, nothing major. Enigma is as fiesty as his sister - that could be...

    B/N Fry Help

    Interesting you should say that LOL... In 2 weeks, after the new bettas have been quarentined, the 2 girls will move into the sorority, the 3 "old" boys will move into barracks alongside the 3 "new"boys, leaving me with an empty tank

    Hydra In Bettas Tank

    They are white/clear in colour. The "body" is maybe 5mm, but the tentacles are upto 15mm easy on some of them, others have just got little short tenatalces. Well, I'm going to risk it. I;ve had at least 3 different sources say it should be OK and not found any to say they are likely to harm the...

    Hydra

    If they can safely cohabit then that's good enough for me for now. It's just I've not got another spare tank for the bettas and I obviosly don't want to cause the bettas any harm. Bettas over hydra I'm afraid. But yes they are fascinating, so if you think they'll not harm the bettas (and you'd...

    Hydra In Bettas Tank

    Unfortunately, emptying, drying and bleach dipping isn't going to be possible now (10.45pm LOL) and hubby's out by 7am, not getting home until around 8.30pm all this week and I can't do any lifting or such. Do you really think the bettas will be safe with the hydra? Would be awesome if they...

    Hydra In Bettas Tank

    My new bettas have been acclimatising in smallish containers as I needed to move the plants out of their new home before putting them in (and I've been waiting for hubby to get home to help me do that). Upon moving some plants I've discovered I've got an infestation of hydra - which I can only...

    Hydra

    I had some new bettas arrive today and they've been acclimatising in smallish containers as I needed to move the plants out of their new home before putting them in. Upon moving some plants I've discovered I've got an infestation of hydra - which I can only assume came from the plants. Problem...

    B/N Fry Help

    Ah, there's no way I can move the bogwood they've spawned on into my fry tank I've also found there is zero chance of catching the danio (unless I drain the tank so he can't go over/under the nets). I'm just hoping that Paddy can do his stuff and let nature take it's course...

    They'Re Here!

    All of them are mustard gas, just Enigma (and his sister) have a lot of marbling Enigma - a little less colourful but that's probably the stress of travelling for best part of 3 days! His sister is the feisty one, but very similar in looks. Charisma - his fins are almost see...
