    A photo dump of some of favourite tank inhabitants :)

    Thank you so much! Yeah truth be told I actually am not a big fan of tetras at all and these are the only species I like and never see them at my LFS so when I was in last I finally took the plunge!

    Freed from fry, gained guppy guilt

    As I have been posting about lately I recently upgraded my OG 20 gallon aquarium to a 29 gallon and starting over from scratch after the trial and error that was my first tank has given me such joy and entertainment. It dawned on me this morning while I was watching my tank that I would never...

    My 29 gallon is finally cycles and stocked!

    I actually have three betta ladies in there they've been good together for about 4 months but I am prepared to move them if need be, the pinky one in the picture is named Gloria Steinham I think she's a copper crowntail. I also have some amano shrimp, cory cats and these beautiful endler hybrids...

    Another mystery egg clutch in the same day different tank - is today my own personal mothers day?

    I feel like I have posted a ton today but I was just adjusting some things in my 10 gallon and found these eggs on my heater and under some water wisteria - the rest of the tank inhabitants are all livebearing fish/snails so they are off the hook for child support. My only other two options...

    What ARE these eggs in my cycling aquarium?!

    Thank you so much for the compliment and advice on the sword, I'll fix that up in a moment. I never need to be asked twice to share my tanks that's for sure but they are both looking rather sparse right now as I harvested a bunch of cuttings to build the new 30 gallon and because I am tearing...

    What ARE these eggs in my cycling aquarium?!

    Yeah, I think I am going to let them ride for curiosity sake, I just wanted to see if anyone would chime in with the advice of burning down my house to rid myself of some awful onslaught of sea spiders or something along those lines, but so far the coast seems clear so I will update if/when they...

    VOTE NOW!....September 2020 Pet of the Month Contest

    This is my impossibly handsome man cat Lou. He is a 5 year old tabby rescue I got the day I moved into my apartment when I moved across country. I always joke that he is the reincarnation of a lewd construction worker that was placed in a feminist household to learn a lesson, his favourite...

    What ARE these eggs in my cycling aquarium?!

    I started with two assassins years ago to keep my MTS population in check and now I am purposefully trying to breed MTS and ramshorn to feed the 20+ I am trying to sell so I can say with most certainty they aren't assassin eggs haha!

    What ARE these eggs in my cycling aquarium?!

    So this is actually a rock, I bought it because it helps anchor my wood and looks very similar colour pallet to the driftwood but both items were on the shelf in a bin with many other rocks and wood, they were labelled with supplier tags. The rock was labelled as "sunken jade" but nothing comes...

    Share your bettas

    I have three females in a community tank (I know a minimum of 4 or 5 is recommended to disperse the aggression however my ladies to date all get along with no aggression and with 3 I am able to separate them all if/when that changes) Please excuse the state of my glass I am currently in the...

    What ARE these eggs in my cycling aquarium?!

    Sorry to keep replying to my own thread but I am wracking my brain, the tank was used but it had been sitting dry in a basement since 2015 and the filter media was new and the filter disinfected thoroughly.

    What ARE these eggs in my cycling aquarium?!

    These appeared in my aquarium overnight, the tank is cycling and the plants and sponge filter are from my established tank so I was prepared for hitchhiker rams horns and MTS or Assassin Snails. The substrate, this rock and my driftwood was brand new from the store and I scrubbed and disinfected...

    Do these parameters make sense for day 2 of a seeded, fishless cycle?

    Hello everyone, I am doing my first fishless cycle using ammonia and have a question about whether or not the parameters I am getting make sense. So I set everything up yesterday afternoon and added a sponge filter and a filter sponge (and a bunch of plant cuttings) from my established tank...
