    Male & Female BN Pleco

    I'm wondering if I place the choicest caves on one side of the tank and he gaurds the babies, maybe I could put a divider in so no other fish can get near and I wouldn't have to move his cave?

    Male & Female BN Pleco

    Oh it's not the male I'm worried about, its my female. The first male I had and added to the tank they bred in under 2 days, so I was very surprised. My new male is nearly her same size, give or take a centimeter. I'm worried I have a black widow BN pleco :eek:

    Male & Female BN Pleco

    My male pleco is finally two inches in length, nearly the same size as my female BN pleco in my 65 gallon main tank. I bought him with the intention to breed them since she seems to get gravid quite often despite only ever breeding once... then she ate the father. He was only half her size so...

    Is all purpose sand okay for fish (mollies)?

    Just be sure to rinse it very well, it has a lot of fine dust that will keep your tank cloudy for days!

    White spots on my angelfish

    She's still swimming but her colors are faded a bit. No labored breathing yet. I'll try once again to feed before lights out

    White spots on my angelfish

    Thanks for the info. Herbtana is for external issues with bacteria/parasites. I know garlic isnt a cure-all, I'm trying to get her to eat like you suggested. She's refusing, short of taking her out of the water and shoving it in her mouth I'm unsure what to do. I tried using the pippette I use...

    White spots on my angelfish

    Nitrates were at about 5.0ppm, I did another water change of 15 gallons and I'm waiting for things to settle before testing again. More water waiting to be changed out if the readings don't lower.

    White spots on my angelfish

    I just got back from two pet stores near me and bought some seachem tropical pellets with garlic, hopefully this gets her interested as I tried to hand feed her and even used a pippete and she wouldn't eat. I have only two straight medications on hand API general cure and api E.M Erthromycin...

    White spots on my angelfish

    I've tried feeding her vegetables but she refuses, I've soaked deshelled raw peas and tiny pieces of spinach in garlic and she'll grab them and spit them out, or shred them. Every now and again she'll chase my BN pleco off her zucchini or spinach leaf pieces but she never eats them. The closest...

    White spots on my angelfish

    Reading my first post I see I wasn't clear on the foods I feed, sorry if I got a bit snippy.

    I feed my fish every three days with fluval bug bites and omega one flakes/omega one shrimp pellets for my cories/omega one and fluval pleco bites for my BN pleco/ Omega One frozen Blood worms/Carnivore Entree/frozen mysis shrimp. My fish are well fed. Also I already performed the large water...

    White spots on my angelfish

    Came home tonight to find these white spots on my girl. They don't appear fuzzy, just slightly raised from the skin. My male has no similar marks or defensive wounds so I'm thinking they didn't fight, they aren't a bonded pair though. I also noticed her colors were very vibrant in a way that...

    Cardboard backgroung needs waterproofed?

    I'd already looked into that, but similar to paints it would warp the design on the card board and cause it to crease and bubble. This is a cutout from my favorite movie and it's from an in store display that can't be replaced. Thank you for the suggestion though.

    Spiderwood and angels

    unfortunately my local LFS only sells three types of wood safe for freshwater, mopani, malaysian, and cholla wood. Cholla wood gets very soft and sort of gummy on the inside as it becomes water logged and creates a lot of debris in the tank. Especially since my pleco starts eating on it, so I...

    Spiderwood and angels

    :):D:):D:)Sup:D:):D:):D Was there a contaminated supply or something or is the wood in general likely to have this fungus? In Was really hoping to do a sort ofnunderwater bonsai with java moss and spider wood. Any other wood suggestions that are somewhat more unique than a lump of mopani...

    Does anyone know how to contact moderators?

    I'm having an issue and need to discuss something with an unbiased moderator. Does anyone know how to contact one? The mobile version of the site isn't letting me load the help option at the bottom of the page.

    Spiderwood and angels

    Is spider wood safe for two large angelfish? They aren't veiltails but are fairly large and I don't want then to get injured.
